WEEK 29: July 16
Meeples Games

Alex wins 1-Y0-T(-6)

An odd sort of Oh Hell variant, where each card has four suits on it (cubes, cones, &c) with one to three of each. So a card can be worth 4 (one of each symbol) up to 12 (three of each symbol). You are dealt eight cards and have to guess how many tricks you are going to take. Only by hitting that number exactly do you score positive points - and the bids can't come out exact, because the dealer (who bids last) is constrained to make it not. We found it very difficult to get a handle on how exactly to assess one's hand - there are a lot of symbols that work at cross purposes. We had fun playing, but I think it would take many playings to come up with some sort of system for figuring out what to bid. Tom wound up far into the negative, because he would bid 3 and take 6, thereby losing six points, and then do something similar in the next hand. Alex managed the chaos best, though Yzzy gave her a run for it.

Probably wouldn't have gotten this fun little trick-taker, but it was only marked at 50¢, and all games were half price

So, complete - 25¢

Trick taking and Climbing are two entirely different categories, IMO. So:

Trick-Taking:

1. Sticheln
2. Mu
3. Xactika
4. Complex Hearts
5. Trumpet

And there's so many more great ones!

Climbing:

1. Tichu
2. Frank's Zoo
3. The Great Dalmuti
4. Dilbert: Corporate Shuffle
5. Big Two

And there really aren't that many other good ones.

£1.00 from a localish charity shop - complete and in good condition. 2 things I learnt from this find:

1 - I need to get out more as I recognised the box from a distance while partly covered by something else

2 - Watching sales asssitants pull labels off games is VERY nerve wracking - after she managed to rip the box I said I'd finish removing it at home

Trick-taker. Every card is a member of four different suits, but may have different ranks in each of those suits. You have to make your bid exactly (hence the name) to score.
