A co-worker described this game (rather poorly, in my opinion), but I'm trying to convince her how awesome BGG and it's community are.



Crappy Description:
It's an animal game, and plays like chess. It's an abstract, everything (all the components) is in black and white.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Maybe Hive?

I'd say Arimaa, but that's not all black and white, and it would be very unlikely a non-gamer / casual gamer would have played it.

Arimaa! That has been confirmed as the correct game, and she kindly noted that apparently it isn't "all in black and white."

7 minutes, that's awesome! Here's 5gg for your trouble. As an aside, she made a comment about me offering a "prize" for the answer, so I deleted that line from the post, just to prove my point.

She should be signing up for an account any second now.

Maybe she was only familiar with the Carbon edition...
