Bingo Dice Game Review (prepublished version)

Indian politician, television personality and former cricketer, Navjot Singh Sidhu, said “One who doesn’t throw the dice can never expect to score a six.” Depending on the game (and the context), that is either a good thing or a bad thing. In the case of this game, you want a six, but not always. And when you want that six is critical to winning or making someone else lose. Pick up the dice and let them roll! Continue reading

Istanbul: The Dice Game Review

American economist, George Reisman, said “Whoever claims that economic competition represents ‘survival of the fittest’ in the sense of the law of the jungle, provides the clearest possible evidence of his lack of knowledge of economics.” In this game, the strong will not win, but the smart will and so will the patient. Prices will change as demand stays steady and goods become limited. You don’t need to be lion to survive in this jungle, but don’t be sheepish when it comes to making tough choices. Continue reading

Big ones died down under the firemen’s valor only to break out again later.” The bravery of the men and women who volunteer to fight the fires that rage in the wilderness cannot be overstated, nor the dangers of doing so. Many of us will never be given (or want) the opportunity to try. In this game, you can test your resolve, your team work, and luck to see if you can put the fires out before it’s too late. Continue reading

H.I.D.E Game Review

The world of espionage is a shadowy place, where secrets are better than gold. It’s also a world of extreme competition, but not one you’ll ever hear about. Every agent hopes to be the top spy, but this is a game where the best of the best is also the most visible. And as any standard spy field guide will tell you, a visible agent is a dead agent. Strive to be the greatest spy, but do it in the shadows. Continue reading

Cops and Robbers Game Review

Be it cops and robbers, dogs and cats, or even Decepticon and Autobots, opposites not only tend to attract, but also repel. In this game, one player will take on the role of the police force protecting a small town. The other player will take on the criminal element who is on the look out to steal some loot. It’s a game of cat and mouse (oh, there’s another) with lots of cash and jail time up for grabs. Continue reading
