Be the best, get screwed the least, screw over your opponents, yet all of this with only 30 cards in the deck in 5 colours with six cards numbered 0 (loco) thru 5 in each. Cards played from your hand in turn order, one at a time, with players then taking one of the remaining chips in any colour untill one colour has all cards played when you then score the round. Score being the sum of the products from chips in a colour against last card played in that same colour.

A Reiner Knizia favourite which he has reimplemented with themes many times over, yet in it's rawest form, Loco! is the stripped down version which works best. The variation here being that if you play the zero, you need to call "Loco" to still have the right to take a chip. Kevin was well and truly onto my play and with Aaron closely on my heels there was not much room to move.

Name: Order Score
Kevin O'Brien (cyberkev63) (New) 3 71
Solomon M. Green (Moose_Head) 4 83 (Winner)
John Farrell (Friendless) (New) 2 62
Aaron Seeber (aaronseeber) 1 74


Play Date: Sunday June 12th, 2016.

Mine is Quandary, which I rate a 9 but avg rating is 6.61. I probably have overrated it, but part of it is that there's this one beautiful, far overproduced bakelite edition (the one I have) and a bunch of average productions. Ironically, I've come to dislike the bakelite edition because it's far too big to actually get taken anywhere, for such a small and light game.

Knizia is great at taking very simple rules and creating very deep games. Wildlife Safari/Botswana/Loco is teachable in 2 minutes and playable in 5 - 10 but it's all about reading the players. The first time or two people play it, they're all focused on how best to play their hand. Then, by the third or fourth play the light bulb goes on and playing their hand becomes mostly a reaction to what other people are doing. Then, once everyone at the table starts doing that, it becomes a game of bluff and misdirection... all in a game that's still explainable in 2 minutes and playable in 5 to 10.

Note: I chose Loco because it's slightly easier, but Paris Connection has all of the same characteristics except that it's 30 minutes instead of 5 - 10.

30 April.

Another filler from our Tabletop Day gaming marathon. Actually, we played Loco!, but it's listed as this in BGG, so I'll take that as a W win!

Additional plays: Why First?

Also known as Quandary, Flinke Pinke, Botswana and probably a whole bunch of other names.

Thor is basically the same game, but added some special action cards.

I only recently discovered this game and played a couple of rounds using The Badger Deck

I really liked it. It very fast and simple. The rules can be explained in 2 minutes. But then it does provide some interesting decisions.
It's probably one of the simplest stock market-ish game out there.

It's certainly more of what people here on BGG often call a "filler", but i really find it fascinating just for it's simplicity and i'm actually kind of excited about introducing it to casual gamers (perhaps the type who enjoy games like "no thanks" or "6 nimmt")

Shameless self promotion:
I started creating art for a card-based reskin of Ra a while ago, then turned the art into something i thought i could use for this game too... and then thought: "why not turn it into a game of its own?", if you want to check it out go here:



SETH, reimplementing the Knizia classic "wildlife safari" - ideas welcome!
