See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Background:
The Aboulou Tribe in Eastern Trisopotamia invented Jungle Speed to determine the shares of food each member received after a successful hunt approximately 3000 years ago. The Aboulous originally used eucalyptus leaves as cards for the game. These early games usually ended in bloody fights because, unfortunately, all of the cards were identical. This simple error nearly drove the tribe to extinction. This is why Jungle Speed remained unknown by the outside world until the 20th century, when 2 clever gamethropologists, Tom & Yako, replaced the leaves with the playing cards we now use today.


Great stuff...

Picking a single favourite is always tough, especially when there are so many good options out there. However, after some thought, my favourite at the moment has to be TZAAR.

Backgammon is neither simple nor short.

In my opinion. :)

I changed the title to games rather than just game because I didn't want people to only post one.

Re: post your favorite simple fun game
Hm. Games, you say? If only there were some sort of geeky list functionality built into BGG.

Cities is good. Simple, short and, unlike most fillers, requires your brain a bit.
