Next is the only all skill game in the WBC--Elchfest. Hot Moose flicking action. No dice, no cards, no tiles, just flicking skill baby!

There is more tension here than any other event at the WBC.

Unfortunately this is a game that may change in the future, It is impossible to replicate the unique decrepitude of the Host's tables and that could change the event. Clearly I have not mastered it, as I lost in the first round.

Every year there's a single elimination tournament in this flicking game. My son likes to point out that it's one of the only luck-free games at WBC. The problem was that I wanted to play Lost Cities in an hour, so I had time for only one round. I duly played that one round, increasing my play count for Elk Fest lifetime to 12.

At my first WBC I played Elkfest and enjoyed it so much that I bought my own copy soon after. I have played it with my non gamer family and some of them have bought copies. I have played it with students at the high school where I teach and one of them liked it enough to build his own set in wood shop. I guess you could say I'm a pretty successful Elkfest evangelist. Sadly, I am a very poor Elkfest player despite being able to hold my own in Crokinole and other flicking games. At my last WBC, I taught the game to my first round opponent and promptly turned around and beat me 2 games to 1 to knock me out of the tournament. I figured I would get in a round or two and head to King of Tokyo.

Well for good or for bad I wound up playing against some less experienced players in the opening rounds and managed to knock off three opponents. Then I ran into a talented player who defeated me in our first game pretty soundly. I jumped out to a decent lead in the second game and was in the flicking zone for a bit until I was one successful flick from the island. My opponent was making wise defensive moves and I had a great deal of trouble setting up the winning shot. He eventually managed to put his elk in a position to win on the next turn and I had one clear shot to get onto the island. I botched the final shot and went down in flames 2-0. As always, a great time.

Saturday, August 1st

Game played #16 w/ Kim

We played Mammoth Elk Fest at the Mayfair area. I normally like the mammoth games, but this one seemed a bit cheap. There was no bank, rather just electrical tape on the floor. That being said, the stuffed moose were cute and the game was fun. BTW, this game always perturbed me because the animal on the front is a MOOSE not an elk. However, Kim read that folks in at least some parts of Europe refer to moose as elk, so I guess that's OK .

2 players: winner unknown - if the tape is the bank, Doug wins; if the bank is past the tape, Kim wins

Verdict: to



I have affectionately dubbed my moose, Smokey, but you can call him El Smokarino if you aren't into the whole brevity thing.

Played on the 3rd

Went to the board game cafe in London (Draughts)

The first game we played whilst waiting for a demo was Elchfest. A brilliant little dexterity game for two.

For some reason, this is a classic game. Flick stones on the table to make a path for your Elk to reach the other player’s starting position before they reach yours. This game has no interactivity, and penalizes players for using their stones to knock over the other player’s Elk. I don’t find it particularly fun or interesting, but I will play it as a joke.

I've done it with this one. Makes for some nice bit of chaos on the table if you play it with more than two, or with extra pieces.

March 24th:

Picked this up at the KublaCon 2013 flea market.

I walked into a game night in progress. The host was up and about and had finished his cleaning duties so we had time for a quick game before more people walked in.

He CRUSHED me the first game, but we decided to play best two out of three. I redeemed myself on those last two plays and claimed the title of Elk King.
