Large Crisloid set. Missing the doubling cube and one of the white dice. I was hoping for swirly bakelite stones but these look solid and very un-bakelite-ish. On the bright side the set is very big and impressive so I'll keep it. $5.99 @ GW

Found a couple of things on my way home. First was this at Savers for $1.99

I could not pass it up and it will go on the shelf with my matching Go and Chess bookcase editions.


edit: Missing one red piece. It is a long shot, but does anyone have a parts copy?

A total of 18 games this month, spread across 8 different games. That's one game every 41.33 hours, with each game being played an average of 2.25 times.

No new games this month. One of my daughters got a bit of an abstract mood going which explain the top two games this month. Backgammon is one of my 10 rated games and I've been playing it for nearly 40 years. As for Xiangqi, I've been playing it on and off for a few years but only against my kids so I suspect I'm very bad at it.

I have been playing this longer than most games. Its a fun classic and well worth the shelf space. I am going to group in here my cribbage board, pinochle deck, and general card games like euchre, rook, and dirty clubs.

I've been debating buying a backgammon board for a while but never pulled the trigger. Found a really cool on at the south VV today and so grabbed it. Can't find a picture on BGG but I took some and will add them.

Nice wooden box Lord of the Rings version with metal rings, wooden cups, and map of Middle Earth on the playing surface. Unfortunately missing one ring of each colour, and wooden box a bit beat, but couldn't talk myself out of it. $6 VV NE.

My favorite find of the week was a large briefcase style backgammon set for $10 at Savers in Scottsdale. It was a cork lined one and the pieces were bakelite (cherry and butterscotch). All in very good condition and complete. Looks like this:

I have to give the nod to my most played game. Currently living in Jordan, and I have found many kindred spirits here. Many of my co-workers now play; many of whom learned the game from me. Purchasing a nice board in Istanbul this past fall helped increase the amount of play Backgammon got as well.

As for the game, I've already mentioned my love of probability and spatial mechanisms. Backgammon does this in a game that is both strategic and accessible.

Backgammon - classic abstracts, There is something about abstracts, that lends to 2 player, probably because of the emphasis on strategy.

Chose Backgammon as my example since my wife and I began playing this a while ago, in fact when we were dating, which was quite a while ago. I still remember playing on a picnic table by a lake. When the weather turns nice, we still go to a near by park to play a round or two. Good memories as well as good gaming.

I've begun gaming bootcamp of my recently-turned-3 minion with several games from papa's big closet of games. The minion, pictured here, was started off with Backgammon. He absolutely adores the idea of a suitcase of sorts which opens up into this weird patterned ... thing, with a few dice and lots of discs. After many hours of just counting stones, storing all sorts of other things in the case, I began a simple race game: start with a single disc out at the 12 and 13 points, roll the die, count the pips, and move the disc towards their holding container, bearing off if necessary. He did this rather well for like five or six stones, and after that he got bored.

A few days later I brought out a case of Mahjong: he really liked the Dragons, especially the White one (for it was just as white as the stone, so you couldn't see it). I fondly remember my mother explaining this to me when I was just a little older than my son is now... history turns full circle meeple . In the end we couldn't do much more than look at the tiles and play with the point sticks, of course. We'll resume training in a few more weeks.

We have also been playing Rainbow Towers extensively. The minion plays according to the rules, although at times his enthusiasm gets the better of him in that he immediately re-rolls when an outcome is not usable. I've calculated that the mean number of rolls needed to complete a tower is just under 15... just so know when you're in a hurry and your own minion Really Wants you to play.
