Decided to slip Mint Works in my pocket after my wife asked if I wanted to meet some friends for happy hour on Friday. After dinner, one friend mentioned wanting to play a game we had learned separately growing up in the Midwest, Euchre. I casually said, "Well, I do have this game in my pocket" to which my wife replied, "No, you didn't!" (she knew what I had sneaked in to the bar) I produced the small tin tucked in next to my car keys and began teaching my three opponents the beauty of this little game.

After the first round, they all had the rules memorized. It was a tight game, where nobody fell far behind. With long tables at the bar, a nearby patron asked what we were playing and gave the rules a quick look. In the end, it came down to my wife nearly winning with six stars but being blocked at the Supplier from purchasing her final plan and someone else unknowingly getting eight stars to be victorious.

I have a feeling, Mint Works will be joining me the next time I'm invited to HH with the wife.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

That's awesome! I'd totally do the same thing with this game. Mint Works is definitely my 'travel' game when I go places. It's constantly floating between my work desk and my vehicle, though I've only got to pull the game out in the break room on occasion but when I did, I got a bunch of co-workers interested in it.

Up until that point, I had been playing almost strictly solo games with one two-player game with a co-worker. I now know how perfect this little game is as a "travel" companion.
