As I ordered Kissenschlacht from amazon.de, it seems quite reasonable that the rules are in German. I haven't found an English translation of the rules. So, I'm playing the game according to the bgg video from Essen Spiel 2010.

The game box includes a bag of translucent white stars and four little dots. I cannot figure out what these stars are for. They are not to be seen in the video.

Does anyone know what the stars are for?

They're for putting up on the wall or ceiling; they're glow-in-the-dark stars. They're not intended to be used in the game..

Cheers,

Ah...

    thank you for the information

    I'm now considering playing Kissenschlacht in low lighting, to create some nice ambience. I'll position the stars nearby, when I play Nacht der Magier Must find other games that come with glow-in-the-dark components

Best Wishes,

Hi Viranga,

Perhaps Waldschattenspiel is a game for you then too.. It doesn't come with glow-in-the-dark components, but does use light (a burning tea-light) and shadows as a game mechanic. And the ambience is great!

Cheers,
Martijn

Hi Martijn,

    I have considered Waldschattenspiel several times. The ambience does seem like something I'd like ... apart from the open flame. I've avoided open flames in my house. I worry about the possibility of a fire.

    I should post a question, on a Waldschattenspiel forum, asking how to simulate the flickering tea-light without an open flame. I really would like to experience the game.

Best Wishes,

    Viranga

Maybe something like this: http://www.google.nl/search?hl=en&client=safari&q=phillips+t...

If you leave the cover off, it might be bright enough...

Hi Martijn,

    you're very helpful

    I watched a little video clip of a Philips tea light - very nice.

    Thank you for all the responses.

Best Wishes,

    Viranga
