One of many games in my collection as yet unplayed. Guess I'll just continue to sit here fondling the cool, hard plexiglas game tokens. I finally got a chance to play the Comic Warehouse copy. Not bad. Fair amount of turn angst involved in trying to outguess one's opponents.
Interesting chess variant. Own the All the King's Men version. Would like to get Smess (Silly Chess), both on it's own 'merits' as well as a complement to it's lesser well known companion game Chercles (Circular Checkers).
Played once with this expansion, 3pl. For some reason, I was the only one to go after one of the new Tower tiles. Ended up with the Spyglass. Seemed to me at first the weakest of the 4 Tower Powers, but found it pretty useful. Still didn't win the game though. The Roman defender cards didn't come up either.
Played the Comic Warehouse copy once. Did the scenario where the players have been shrunk down to mouse-size and the resident Housecat has been set upon us. We had to escape by flying out of the house in a model airplane.
Haven't played yet. Seems rather difficult to manipulate the ships without knocking the sails off. Some of the sail pieces don't fit very well and refuse to stay in the hull. Don't know if this a problem common to all copies.
What *is* common is the tendency of previous owners of the American Heritage games to either lose or keep the high quality Historical Booklet when they resell their copies.
Nice simple checkers variant. Quick and fun game. Had this as a kid. I remember I particularly liked the silly looking plastic 'ogre' pieces for some reason. It would seem that it wasn't as successful as it's companion game Smess. Chercles almost never shows up on eBay, and for months, I couldn't find anyone else on the Internet with a copy. Smess, on the other hand, is almost always on eBay, and has a PC version for the Zillions of Games program.
Just a basic glass board and pcs set. Only really have one for the sake of my game collection. Will have to upgrade to something better looking and more expensive. (Anyone have a Franklin Mint Classic Star Trek set they don't want anymore?)
Bought this on the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, This is one of his favorite games for the different mapboard each game, and the Good/Evil character changing. I've only tried this once so far as a two-player game against said friend. It bogged down toward the later game as characters kept flip-flopping between Good and Evil, and this was dragging things out. I'll have to try it again w. 3 or more. Hope my experience with this game will improve, as I had high hopes for it.
1st copy. Two of the metal location pads embedded in board don't work, i.e, they can't detect the magnets in the bases of the player tokens. Probably a due to wear in the connections from those pads to the electronic Clue computer.
Pretty cool family abstract game. Used to have a copy in the family game collection. One of the nostalgia items I very much want to re-acquire. Oddly rare game. Haven't seen a copy come up on eBay yet. Addendum: finally got a copy on eBay.
