That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

Every couple weeks some work buddies and I play a game over Friday lunch. It doesn't always work out, and often our times get cancelled, trampled by meetings or business trips. Lately, though, we've been on a roll. Today there were four of us, and I brought out Exxtra.



Although light, this is an awfully good game for lunch since we can eat pizza at the same time, laugh & tell stories, all while playing the game. It's like "Bunco for gamers," that way. We got through three quick games, and they all had those wonderful dilemmas Knizia baked into this one: leaving gaps to tempt other players, the thrill/agony of doubles, trying for more points versus knocking out other players, etc. Just great. I have the original edition, but I understand the recent remake (Excape) does a faithful job recreating it.
