I'm not certain that this is the right forum to post this in, but here goes:

Game designer and fellow geek Gord! has put up an offer for six random people out of the first 30 who play, rate, and comment on his game Calculus, which is free and playable with objects around the house or indeed objects outside the house, to receive a free copy of his highly-rated abstract Santorini.

Calculus is a simple and interesting connection game where the players push or move stones of their colour on a board. It's simple to learn, easy to play, and a set can be cobbled together out of most anything.

Santorini is a gem of a game in which players build up towers in an attempt to win the game by reaching the highest level while simultaneously stopping their opponent from doing so. While this game can easily be played with poker chips or books or other items laying around, Gord's copies look fantanstic and minimal.

Just thought I'd post this in case anyone who might be interested wasn't already aware. These are neat games worth a look even if you aren't interested in winning a copy of Santorini. I don't know when this offer was first posted, but I presume it's still on.

I'm sorry, but I've been thinking and thinking about why anyone would want to play a game called Calculus. Are you sure the translation is correct? That's nearly like being asked to play a game called Shoot Me in the Head First.

Some of us liked calculus.

(I know. There's something wrong with me.)

I've been meaning to do this for a while... I downloaded the rules some time ago. I didn't understand them the first time I looked, but after taking a second gander I saw something I missed. I'll see if I can convince someone to play a game with me soon.

I have to admit, this is a novel way of accumulating reviews for a new game.

The game ain't new - 2007. It needs some love no one has been paying it any attention.
Gord it a very good designer with a few good games under his belt - one cult hit in Santorini, and another I prefer more Vesuvius
And he is a nice guy, I gather from my email exchanges in the past.

Free game (ok its an abstract), Can play with materials just laying around, go give it a try.

Wow! I thought people would have jumped at a chance to win a free game. All you need to do is try Calculus, rate it & comment on it. It's an interesting game. Surely, you must have the needed bits to make your own copy. Give it a try.
