It's true. I bring games to our holiday gatherings, but my family always loses to me. Even simple games like Settlers of Catan or Carcassonne are too complicated for them. When it comes to strategy games... my family is a bunch of losers!

... but they don't like losing, and they certainly don't like being confused. Enter North Star Games. We design games that are interesting to gamers, and that casual gamers can actually win. In short, we design:



To help get the word out, we're giving away $100 cash and 2 games with this holiday contest! No multiple choice questions this time; just tell us a story about a time your friends or relatives were over-whelmed with a board game, or just read other peoples' stories. You can win either way!

Enter Now!

My thought exactly! I say we start a riot and see if they give us one.

while it would be cool to get a micro-badge, I think that the prizes they are offering are sufficient. I can't complain. I'm hoping that for once I might actually have a shot at winning, seems like I've got poor luck.

Great contest! Fortunately (or perhaps in this case unfortunately) I haven't yet had an overly negative experience with introducing anyone to gaming... apart from my dad just not getting the point of Escape, but I should have known better in that case.

Sure is fun, though, to read about other people's misfortunes!

I've deleted all my contest microbadges because they just get in the way of the microbadges I actually like.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

We weren't able to choose just one "best" story, so we gave out some honorable mentions. I just posted the winners here:
