1 Kalaha aka Kalah - OK game, but not my favorite game in the Mancala family.
2 Kyoto Shogi - 5×5 shogi variant. Due to the few pieces (5) I do not mind the eternal piece flipping here in contrast to The Duke.
3 The Kaleidoscope Classic - Small, pattern-building game.

Look into:
1 Kamisado
2 Kopano
3 Kulami
4 Khet: The Laser Game
5 King's Court
6 Kriegspiel aka Le Jeu de la Guerre - Need to check up on "Secret unit deploymnet"?!?
7 Kensington

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

Mancala (as I've always known the game to be called) is an ancient two player abstract game. On your turn you pick up all the beads (or shells, or whatever) out of a pot on your side of the board, and drop each one off, one-by-one into the pots in a counterclockwise order. Any beads that are dropped off into your large "home" pot on the right side of the board is worth a point. Most points wins. The game is fast, and quite interesting to play. You can also captures beads on your opponent's side of the board by finishing your move in an empty pot on your side, with beads in the opposite pot on your opponent's side.

Spent the week in Mammoth Lakes with my wife, kid, and parents. My dad does not play games other than occasionally poker (somewhat ironically since he is a political science professor who specializes in game theory).

 8   My First Stone Age

Played this with Alistair once. He's almost 5 now and he definitely is starting to understand it a but better, but the attention span can...wander.

 N/A   Mystery Rummy: Jack the Ripper NEW!

Picked this up as a free throw in at a flea market a couple weeks ago. Played a game with my wife. I liked it pretty well, though it took a bit to really understand what was going on. I do want to try it again now that I have e better grasp on how the hunting the ripper part interacts with the rummy part.

 N/A   Kalah x3 NEW!

My mom loves Mancala (she was an elementary school teacher, so it was a great game for that age group). We played 3 games and she beat me 2 out of 3.

 8   Hey, That's My Fish!

Played this with my mom and Alistair. Alistair gets this game mechanically, but does not really understand how to do well at it. I won, but their combined scores were enough to beat me, which Alistair counted as a victory.

 8   Ghost Blitz

Alistair is actually *almost* competitive at this game. I'm not sure who would win between him and my mom straight up (speed games have never been her thing and at 74 I'm sure her reaction times have slipped).

OMM
August 1st was my birthday. I ordered Fabled Fruit and Barenpark for myself (for free shipping while ordering Freedom: The Underground Railroad for my sister whose birthday was the 3rd (she's a history teacher who likes Pandemic)). Also, my mom gave me a $50 Gift Card to our FLGS, which I ran out to spend the day we returned and got Libertalia, which is a game I really liked the couple times I played it.

Last game for the day!
Been very long time since I've played this game (January 2015) - and I am glad to get to play it again. I was actually looking at the game at home and considered bringing it - but I didn't decided the box was too long. But my friend had it and took i out and asked if I would play this.

And this also concludes the game spam for today

44 plays

The vast majority of these plays were with my 7yo daughter. She shows no mercy and has beaten me many times (and I couldn't be more proud!). She loves the colorful stones in our set and the simplicity of the game. We haven't reached for this in a while, but it has given the two of us a lot of shared memories.

I didn't want to include Mancala on this list.

Great game? Not really.


Satisfying? Playable very quickly with anyone while having conversation and food? Playable anywhere, even without a board or other components? Yes.

I'm learning other variants in the hope that it can be a great game too.
