There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences , under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

I've entered over 150 contests, and have yet to win a single one. I just must have bad luck. This would also explain my general poor performance at luck based games as well.

I do get little tiny cartoon pictures though. So that's not too bad, right?

Do you like games with luck? When is it "too luck-driven"?

If a game has a luck element that can be reduced, such as the cards dealt in Agricola, do you take steps to remove luck from the game?

What about "chaos". The way I heard this used, is to indicate that there are forces at work that you do not control. For example, 18xx games have no random element. But the chaos from the other player's actions cause lots of uncertainty. Another example would be Tikal. You cannot pre-plan your turn too much, because the actions from the other players may change the board situation.

Does chaos add or subtract from the fun of a game?

Group Stage Draw

Like the FIFA World Cup the top eight games were seeded and placed in Pot A so that they could not be placed in the same groups. The other pots were determined by geographical area to limit the number of games from similar areas being placed in the same groups. Games from geographical areas being in the same pot as a seeded game from that area was minimised.
Unlike the FIFA World Cup a second level of seeding was applied to attempt to make the groups as balanced as possible. Why they don't do this I have no idea.

Many gamers will say "the dice hate me" or the "die hate you." I would expect we have all said it at one time or another. Do you *really* believe that? Or do you think it's just coincidence? Do you have problems separating your "sense" that the dice are against you from your rational self who knows that it's just random? Do you disagree with this premise entirely and believe that the dice actually can "go against you"? Argue amongst yourselves.

I have been subscribed to this geeklist for a while now, but I waited until today to post my entry.

I chose this game as my entry because I wrote a session report some time ago, and it has my dad (Wade) and both my daughters (Ginger and Ruth) mentioned in it.

My father passed away on May 25 of this year. Today would have been his 80th birthday.

He was never much of a board gamer. I only remember about 5 games he ever played (Euchre, Luck of the Draw, Trivial Pursuit, Yahtzee, and Solitaire).

He loved to golf, go fishing, and hunt for mushrooms in the woods. He was also the kind of man who took his responsibilities seriously, and passed that on to me. If I can only pass on one thing to my girls it would be this as well.

Tikam

Meaning
Tikam means to try one's luck. Tikam was also a game of luck popular in the 1970s and 80s. Its primary targets were children. There would be a board of 100 numbers, and different toys hung on each number slots. Children would be attracted to the toys, and badger their parents for some money to buy a number. A random draw to pick a number follows, and the child got to experience the thrill of tearing open the number and locating the toy on the board.

Possible Origins
Malay word tikam, which means to take part in a game of chance.

Example
During a Three Kingdoms Redux game...
Me: Yay, I won the Hire Instructor and/or Import Technology space. Can finally train some armies.
(Yay, I won the Hire Instructor and/or Import Technology action space. I finally get to train some armies.)
Christina: Yeah. And you get to tikam one enhancement card too.
(Indeed. And you get to draw one random state enhancement card too.)

Why We Rejected This Name
Tikam suggests we are designing board games that are very luck dependent and without much depth.

I have been part of the G4GG thread for three months now and last month was the first time that i entered an item.So far no wins have been recorded and i feel that i will need the luck of the draw and the power of the troll since i can not afford to tip big.

The power of the troll will compell me to post, annoy, talk, more about boardgames and in the end i will be victorious!

I became aware of G4GG in November of last year, but had no idea what I was looking at.

In December I read and reread and reread the rules and finally decided to start bidding!

Unfortunately, I am poor, so I was super excited when I got my yearly drive bonus to spend on bidding.

I also never bid over 5 on an item. But that's only because I don't know how to bid over 5 without submitting a geekmail with it and don't want to have a G4GG faux pas. blush

So I will bid until my runs out and then start scrambling for more. (Hello Geekmod)

Hopefully a little Good Luck Troll can help my "0.765 % chance of winning"

I am working up my confidence to actually put up an item, but am a little nervous I can't offer anything exciting to the group.

Thanks Mandy for the chance at a little luck!
