I quite enjoyed Marvin Mavel’s Marvelous Marble Machine, Greg Lam’s quirky yet fun game of manipulating marbles through a maze of obstacles and effects. His latest design, released under his Pair of Dice Games label, is even wackier, as should be obvious from its name: Chopstick Dexterity MegaChallenge 3000. Even the theme is bizarre, as it involves the Japanese government’s efforts to wean the youth from silverware and get them back to using traditional chopsticks.

“Chopstick” is a dexterity game, wherein three players use chopsticks in attempts to remove items from a bowl. Each turn a disc is revealed, and players rush to grab as many tiny wooden pieces that match either the color or symbol depicted on the disc. The grabbing can be wild and bumpy, and players may even knock a piece from the chopsticks of opponents, but only if the sticks are still above the bowl. The player who grabs the most pieces wins the round and earns a point. Subsequent rounds are conducted in the same manner until one player has earned five points.

That is truly all there is to the game. It is a dexterity game, pure and simple. It usually results in lots of laughter and some jabbing with the sticks. Don’t take it seriously, though, as any player possessing the skill to properly use chopsticks will dominate play. Play to have a few laughs and some light-hearted fun. If you try to take it seriously, you will be sorely disappointed.

We played three games, and Mark Smith proved to be an expert with the sticks.
