So Last night I was at a convention (In my dream) and I stood over a table with a popular reviewer that likes abstract and set collection.

He/She was playing this game.

They were playing one card in any of the 8 spots. I could not make sense of why they picked up or scored sets. So I put on this image what I thought I saw.



So a few of the spots had piles of cards... that must of took time. Seemed like they gathered sets or scored every other play but I'm not sure how unless the slots were seeded.

This was an original game and I'm sure there are many ideas like it. Do you know of any?

Cool part was no text.
Bad part is you know you're setting someone up.

one more random thing is if the set crossed over the text spot then you do that.

I've had lots of dreams with board games that seemed intensely interesting in the dream, but the pattern I've noticed is that either:

1) I'm trying to get a game going but I never actually play, or

2) As I'm playing, I never actually finish any action, because every action somehow requires me to resolve a more detailed sub-action (my move isn't over until I draw an event, which isn't over until I resolve a combat, which isn't over until I choose a tactic, which requires me to go to my character sheet and compare my stats to a list I have to look up from...) until the dream disintegrates.


Which makes sense; it is implausible that my dreaming mind could actually produce a coherent set of rules on the spot, so the dream always goes in a direction where it doesn't have to. It feels like I know something about the game, but I never actually do.
