Portable and cute. And it has flicking! But I can for the life of me not understand why they found the basic principle of the game interesting enough to make a boxed game out of it. I get the same amount of fun flicking bottle-caps, which is not saying much.

My son just turned six, so between that and a general need to trim the collection, I have been going through the games that haven't been played in a while, finding out if he still likes them.

Elk Fest - 2 plays
First Published 1999
4 years, 9 months, 11 days
Current Rating - 5.5

My son did not 'get' this which, I think, shows that it's a dexterity game for grown ups: strategy in where you flick the stepping stones, etc. Even for a Kosmos 2p box, there's a lot of air in there: I could easily bin the box and store this in a baggie. It's OK.


Nacht der Magier - 3 plays
First Published 2005
3 years, 4 months, 16 days
Current Rating - 6

This was a hit, despite needing a very literal dust-off. It being high summer, my son was frustrated that we couldn't play during the day, but when the night fell (and he was allowed to stay up a bit!), he enjoyed it very much.


Takenoko - 1 play
First Published 2011
2 years, 3 months, 29 days
Current Rating - 6

One of the grown-up games that I think is very approachable for the younger gamer, aesthetics especially. My boy clicked on to scoring the tiles quickly, worked out the feeding-the-panda scoring soon enough, but couldn't grasp the bamboo growing. I still feel this game is unbalanced in that the bamboo-growing seems a much more difficult way to score. It's fine, but I don't like it enough to get the Chibis.


Rüsselbande - 1 play
First Published 2000
2 years, 3 months, 21 days
Current Rating - 4.5

Forerunner of Camel Up, still cute, but it is basically a luck-of-the-dice race. I'll probably move this one on.


Monkey Memory - 1 play
First Published 2000
1 year, 9 months, 1 day
Current Rating - 4.5

With more points cards than I think I'll ever need if I only ever used them once, this memory game is a one-trick pony. For some reason, my son always tries to cheat (looking at the hidden card) which, considering it's so obvious, makes me laugh. Again, one to move on, I think.


Cube Quest - 2 plays
First Published 2013
1 year, 6 months, 5 days
Current Rating - 6.5

Eighteen months makes a big difference when you're six: my son got into this so much it had to be put away while he calmed down. Nice to play it a bit more 'strategically' before it descended into complete carnage. Tempted to get another set for some 2v2 battles.

I was going to add Hive Pocket but that one kind of stretches what will fit in a SHIRT pocket. Then again, so does Star Realms. PANTS pocket maybe.

These elks on the other hand will feel right at home in a shirt...

This was the only tournament game I had planned for Tuesday. This year marked my first first round exit from this event, as I signed in, sat down, played my game, and was eliminated within five minutes.

At least when I flame out, I do it quickly

After Santa Fe Rails, Vinny and I headed off to the Elk Fest tournament and we flicked some stones around the bumpy tables for about a half hour. I won my first match but lost my second in consecutive rounds against a far more skilled opponent. It was actually instructive because I saw him place his elk astride a group of three stones several times (with a foot on the back and forward stone and holding a stone in the middle) where I might have just placed my elk as forward as possible on the first two stones). One of the great things about WBC is learning more about a game as you play skilled competitors-- I have had that experience several times over the years in games like Age of Steam and Brass. It's kind of funny that I even picked up a bit of strategy in Elk Fest.

Something about elks and stuff. I need to look into this more. I'd say this is a reasonable upper limit for component complexity.

Had to swing down to Bookmans in Mesa early last week to meet with someone who bought a game in my auction here on the Geek. Of course I had to see what they had. They had the German version of this Kosmos game. With English instructions here on the geek, this game is good. $3.00
