With 12 eggs on order, the cook sat and thought,
"One at a time, if I like it or not."
With 3 in the freezer and 3 in the pot,
3 in each hand not too warm nor too hot.
The first two were airy, or so he remembers,
The last two both burnt up, and ended in embers.

I was on my way to visit a friend last Saturday and decided to make a quick stop at the thrift shop. At first glance I did not see anything interesting, but then I noticed this game in the corner of the shelf. It was the Ravensburger Casino edition and the board looks really beautiful. It is the second game from the Casino series that I now own, after Jockey. Ravensburger is anyway my favorite publisher with a lot of great games for both adults and children and their games also always look very good. The casino series is their top series from the seventies and these games are all made out of high quality material.

Edit: complete for 2,50 euro

Haven't played this, but it looks like it would fit the list. Instead of letters having pts, different colors have points. Blue letter one point, yellow two pts, green three and red four. Same color tile on same color space is bonus 10. Words of same color bonus 25.

Anyone who knows this game describe its tactics or strategies?

Twice acquired through thrifting.

First I got the flatbox edition. Later I found the nicer, higher quality bookshelf version...

Found the Lingua bookshelf edition from the Casino Series. I already owned the flat-box version, but this one is better. Bought for €0,50 at a thrift shop (Netherlands).

Also bought: 'Rad van Fortuin', 'Rotascript', 'Bingo' (the exact same vintage version I had as a kid), 'Klauter Kabouters' and 'Bluemini - Mijn Konijn' (a domino/storytelling game for toddlers).
[now listed further down]

I've been off Magic for almost two years now. The last few weeks have been really tough, because Regionals were held in a nearby town for the fist time in years. Without this support group I don't think I would have made it...

Lingua
Language: Dutch/German (Ravensburger)
Date: 2005-01-28
Price: € 0,50

Comes from a thrift-shop. Game is complete. Everything is in excellent condition, I was surprised to see that not a single bit was missing.

BEST BIT: the tactile feel of the felt backed pieces.

Bumping my head against the shelf when picking up Z Game, a rain of a colourful alphabet trickled down on me. After picking up a 132 A's through Z's, I thought I might as well take them home. They felt nice.

"C-R-A-C-K!" by D.V.D.A. and I won't divulge their actual name as it would greatly OFFEND lots of folks if I did. It's a hilarious song if you've heard it, almost as funny as "But then I got HIGH" by Afroman!
