$3.99 SVD

The "boring" 1962 version. Not wooden, not red, not square. Bummer.

Complete but box is a little beat.

Finally found something worth note at Bellevue GW. (It almost seems like there may be others who are shopping there for games ...)

$3.99 for a 1962 bookcase edition (tan) in nice shape.

Ahhh connection games... How do I admire thee... But how do I always come away feeling you're one dimensional and soulless. My brain is telling me I just haven't explored their strategies deep enough to give the game character.

It's a toss up on any given day which I prefer between this and the next game.

2 "Bookcase Games"

Twixt

Game is in good shape, as is box. The board has been taped underneath so it folds up and stays togeather. Looks complete, but might be missing some of the towers/connectors..


Airport



Opened and Complete. In VERY good condition. Has original styrofoam insert.. so there is SOME slight crumbling. Board has slight warp, but does not affect play.

Columbus resident, will be able to meet up prior to convention if so desired

Found a 1962 copy of Twixt with the tan box at VV on the way home for $1.99. I don't always A.R.T. But when they look as perfect as this one, I will not hesitate. It honestly looks like it just had the shrink wrap removed.

The very first comment I could find on BGG for this was by David Bush, in reference to Twixt, from a 2003 geeklist item.

twixter wrote:
It is true that mistakes are generally punished much more quickly in Twixt than in many other games. One player called it a "knife fight in a phone booth."


After that, it was used again by the same poster, again in reference to Twixt, but doesn't seem to have caught on in wider use on BGG yet.

The phrase seemed to really take off with Morgan Dontanville's comment on End of the Triumvirate, in a list devoted to Z-Man Games posted in 2006.

sisteray wrote:
It is quick brutal and violent. I love the balance that this creates for a fine tuned three player system. A friend of mine described it as a knife fight in a phone booth.


You can find references to that comment specifically, as well as evidence that Zev Schlasinger, founder and then-head of Z-Man games even started using it as a way to describe the game. It got a lot of traction to describe that game in particular.

A little bit after that, you can start to see it being applied to a lot of other games, including some of them on this list.

Interestingly, the both the original use of the phrase on BGG and the use that seems to have sprung it into wider use both reference that a friend is the one who ACTUALLY coined the phrase. Either both of those guys know the same person, or (more likely) it's a conversational or regional phrase that just-so-happened to get repurposed for use in the boardgaming community.

components are in excellent condition. Complete except for 1 black peg... I am working on trying to get a replacement, but no garantees... the missing peg never bothered any of our games, we never got through all of them in a single game
The box has some marks, has a price written in grease pencil and a small circle sticker, otherwise I would still list it as very good condition.
