Card Game - Baltimore Solitaire

thirty-six_012.gif

BALTIMORE SOLITAIRE, aka THIRTY-SIX, a solitaire card game variant that uses a standard deck of playing cards. In it, you are "double teamed" and must come up with a sum of cards from your tableau that exceeds that of your opponents. Has a few rules to get used to, but I post a number of photos to explain them. Once you start beating the game regularly, you can add in variations to increase the challenge.

Full instructions available at the "game" link above. Enjoy!

Dice Game - Bonus Letter

BONUS LETTER, a short n' simple dice game played with a single, custom six-sided die. You roll the die, pick a letter from the alphabet, and try to think of a word that starts with the letter you picked, and has the most occurrences of the letter rolled on the die. The more bonus letters in the word you write, the more points you earn. Try to earn the most points by the time you make it through the alphabet!

This game requires that you have a six-sided die, but instead of numbers, the faces will have English letters R, S, T, L, N, and E. Use stickers to cover up the numbers on a regular die if you can't come up with a custom die some other way.

Full instructions and rules variations available at the "game" link above. Enjoy!

Dice Game - Recycle Dice

RECYCLE DICE, a simple dice game I made, inspired by an old dice game called King and Neighbour. You want to be the first player to cover all the spaces on your game board with Recycle Tokens. This game supports a theoretically-unlimited number of players, but I suppose the upper limit is round 4, 5, or 6 (since players take their turns one at a time and no one wants to wait too long for their turn).

Here's a big version of the game board (it's an image file):

To play this game you need:

  • One game board per player
  • two six-sided dice (2d6)
  • Lots of little tokens: chips, cubes, coins, etc.

Full game rules and game board available at the "game" link above. Enjoy!

http://www.let-off.com/bgames/smallgames/3chances/three-chances_002.png

You'll need the following supplies for the game:

  • the game board for Three Chances
  • two players
  • two six-sided dice (2d6)
  • six counters or pawns of one colour
  • six counters or pawns of another colour

On your turn, you throw the dice, and can move one of your pawns to an adjacent space with a number that:

  • is the same as one of the dice you rolled, OR
  • is the same as the sum of the two dice you rolled.

Full instructions (and come commentary on probability, because I'm a game design nerd) available at the "game" link above. Enjoy!

The Intracycle

Diagram Intracycle.png

Hey all, I finally wrote up some stuff about The Intracycle, my big ol' experimental physical game thing that was at Baby Castles. The itch link has a pretty serious description as well as some images (along with a ruleset!) which I encourage you to take a look at if you're interested. I won't bother copy/pasting that description here. Hopefully I will be able to get The Intracycle out into the real world some more soon. Let me know what you think of the idea!
