$2.99 SVD

Skor-Mor version. What does this mean? According to BGG, "The game was originally published by Skor-Mor in 1973, but the 1981 AH edition is much easier to find."

Sounds good to me.

Missing the plain old white d6.

I'm putting this up as the item game because it mysteriously comes up as the first option whenever I type in "1989."

The highlight of my gaming week has been learning 1989: Dawn of Freedom (and Vassal) from my zenmaster, Roger. Whenever I screw up, he sits and does nothing, letting me stew in fancies of my own ineptitude until the truth dawns on me. Literally: corrections always come to me between 4-5 a.m.

Games with my Kidlet this week:

We built high-speed bullet trains with pieces from Lectio. Leftover pieces (including the 2s) were turned into a commuter train.

Several games of Toc Toc Woodman. He is beginning to want to play with the game's stated goals in mind, rather than always building towers to knock them down.

Two games of Mr. Jack, with expansion (he loves Pizer and Abberline). We play a simple matching variant in which he flips over tiles, finds the matching character pucks, and puts them on the board. Second round he uses the innocent side (uncoloured) to make it more challenging.

The Paul Principle:

Any great game will have enough expansions or revisions made until it is no longer fun, unplayable or both.

I am the creator of the tongue and cheek paraphrase of the Peter Princple,
which I call, THE PAUL PRINCIPLE. It goes like this:
Any great game will be followed by enough revisions and expansions so it
is unplayable, no longer fun or both.

I am very weary of expansions. Some are good, but many add little to the base game. Some make the game worse. The last thing I would ever do is buy the expansion before the regular game.

The Paul Principle


I have had many bad experiences and have wasted a great deal of money on bad expansions. So I've done a few geeklists on what I call, "The Paul Principle". It goes like this:


Any great game will be followed by enough expansions and/or revisions to make it unplayable, unpleasurable or both.

This is an oddity, published by someone else but inside, all pieces were Avalon Hill, and even had an Avalon Hill catalog. $2.79 Savers

Inside was an old Polaroid of someone looking at their new game:

Could this really be as terrible as the BGG rating? I don't think I've ever played the game, but I bought it on clearance at a Kaybee Toys more than two decades ago and it's been floating through my life since then. I thought I had ditched the game, but then I found it in my parent's house a few years ago while going through Fisher-Price toys and other doodads that my folks had saved for the grandchildren-to-be. Funny how such things happen.

Avalon Hill Game English Edition (c) 1981. Box concave face. Seriously this is a terrible game. I dare anyone to find an Avalon Hill Bookshelf Game with a lower rating by more people.

It's secondary title is "The Ladder of Success Game" ok it's really in here to test if anyone used the trade x for anythingmeeple OK people time to motivate!!!!!

Shipping Policy: Free shipping in USA, first $10 free anywhere else.
