#10

I've picked up 6 games for use in my Physics classroom in the past year. This entry is a combined-entry of sorts for those 6 games: Animal Upon Animal, Bandu, Hamsterrolle, Looping Louie, Riff Raff, and Toc Toc Woodman. They're all so good that I couldn't pick just one to make this list!

They are teachable in under 2 minutes (roughly), can be played by players of all ages (kid friendly is going to become increasingly important to our family!), and are engaging to me and keep me coming back for just one more go.

I remember that we used to bust out Tumblin' Dice all the time for those 5-20 minutes at the start of a game night where people would filter in a few at a time. These games all fill that sort of niche as well; they're quick, you can jump in and out easily, and they're a ton of fun! Knowing how well those type of games are received, I can't wait to show them to everybody back in STL, especially Ben Barfield; goodness knows how much he's grown since I saw him last!

So after a morning of lil' kickers soccer practice and lil' sluggers baseball practice my boys and I set out for an afternoon of thrifting. I have only been to one thrift shop in Vegas since moving here over a year and a half ago and that one visit yielded nothing. I warned my boys (age 3 and 6) to not expect much and to not expect to buy something at every store. There are a lot of stores in Vegas and just on our side of town there are too many to visit in one afternoon. My 6-year old saw a copy of Rivers, Roads & Rails on BGG and said he wanted to get it. I've seen it thrifted often here, and I wasn't interested in paying the $20-$40 (depending on the edition) to Amazon. With expectations set to low, we set off.

Walk into Savers and boom! There's Bandau sitting high and proud on the top shelf. I've been looking for a copy for over three years. Inventoried at home: missing one bean, but includes one extra wooden piece.

Okay, so this is a fairly straightforward dexterity game:
"Players take turns choosing blocks and giving them to each other to place on their structure. A player may pay a certain number of 'beans' to refuse a block and it gets passed to the next player. When a player's structure falls, they are out of the game. Last player standing wins."

What i like about it is the huge selection of different wooden bits and pieces. They're just so inviting!

I'm sure the actual game could be useful itself as a simple activity that trains tactile skills and also frustration tolerance and patience, but perhaps it also has value in training memory and word recollection skills. I.e. ask patients to describe the pieces they are using, allow them to take a couple of seconds to feel them, perhaps closing their eyes while doing so.

could be great for "mindfulness"-focused therapies!

This, like For Sale, is a game with a simple rule set and great aesthetics! It has a real appeal for gamers and non-gamers alike and it can accommodate up to eight. One of the best features of this game is that it allows younger players to be competitive with older ones.

Every so often, you run into people who claim they just "don't get games". This is the one title we own that seems to be successful with them!

Quote:
Players take turns choosing blocks and giving them to each other to place on their structure. A player may pay a certain number of 'beans' to refuse a block and it gets passed to the next player. When a player's structure falls, they are out of the game. Last player standing wins.

Description of Bandu (1992, Milton Bradley, 2-6 players):
Bandu is based upon the game of Bausack. Each player is given a base block and a number of beans. During a turn, a player chooses a wood block from a common supply and either holds a Refuse or Use auction. All player bid with their beans and the winner/loser must place the piece on their tower. If your tower falls you are out of the game. The last tower standing wins.

Description of Sac Noir (Rio Grande Games, 2-8 players):
There are five variations on how to play. The goal in all of them is to build a tower. The bag contains very different wooden pieces (i.e. an ashlar, an egg, a ring, a fir tree etc.) as well as a sack of beans for the "auction variation" of the game. Depending on the variation you choose, either each player builds his own tower or all build one together. The "auction variations" are the most suspenseful and surprising. One might end up spending quite some beans to avoid building an especially difficult element. Gambling and bluffing abilities are needed just as much as a feeling for statics and construction skills. It's a game with almost endless building possibilities. It's a challenge for steady hands and shaky suspense for clever tacticians.

Played with the fam

First played in 2015: 3/1

First play of a game we've had on the shelf forever. I thought it was pretty good as a kind of twist on Jenga.

This is just a straight out sensational game. So simple that it can be played with all ages it is my favorite dexterity game of all-time. The strength of this game is the clever bidding mechanic which adds just the right amount of strategy to this casual game.

$1.99 for what looks like a fun dexterity game. I'm considering adding some stain to the wooden pieces to trick it out a little. What can I say-I'm a maverick.

Found at GW in Port Angeles,Washington next to the personal massager section.
