Was the 179th Geek of the Week.

Two Truths and a Lie:

1- I never watched a horror movie
2- I sold 'skins' for palm handhelds
3- I read "Lord of the Rings" in Japanese

meeple

#3 was the lie : I actually have the books but never found the time to read them.

"musical wrestling as seen on late night TV"

The board is a 5 x 6 grid. Each player has ten tokens, numbered 1 - 9 and one 'X'. Players alternate setting their pieces in the two rows nearest them. The lower the number on the token, the better a wrestler that piece is. The higher the number, the better the musician (but that makes that piece a lousy wrestler). The idea is to get your highest possible piece to the opposite side of the board.

"With Stonehenge, Intermezzo, Hong Kong and Time Square my favorite two-player Knizia. I won several times against a very good chess player, so obviously looking ahead doesn't prevent some nice surprises..." - S.K.Lator - Rated 8

"Strange little game by Reiner Knizia themed on musical wrestlers! It's really a checkers type game of position. Like most Knizia games, it works quite well." - dougadamsau - Rated 5

"10 minute strategy no luck filler, same flavour as Stratego(more than Chess or Checkers but it is a tad similiar to those)." - jayjonbeach - Rated 4

The only purchases I made were 3 games for $20 at the flea market. The first one that caught my eye was Nuba. It was the German edition, but already had the English rules printed. The things that caught my eye were:
small size
Reiner Knizia
2 players

I haven't played it yet, but it sounds interesting.

How bizarre... The numbers in my UK postcode gives me Nuba, a Knizia design from 1995.

Herr Knizia is one of my favourite, if not my most favourite, designers. Coincidence???

A two-player game from 1995 that has been largely overlooked but has a few diehard fans throwing around words like "chess variant" and "genius." Plus which, the story is about seeing who can be the best musician.

Okay, I'm convinced. Please show me this game.

You haven't lived until some sweaty wrestler smashes your musicians while some brazen bass player marches through your lines and plays a song of victory in your face!

From the English-language rules, on gamecabinet.com:

"In the Sudanese highlands live the Nuba, one of the last primitive races on Earth. After the annual harvest all the villagers celebrate with the 'SANDAI. The highpoint of this festival is a wrestling match followed by a music competition. In this game a player wins by making the best use of the wrestling and musical talents of his team."
