Fun wee two player flick-em-up game, that's low in complexity, but high in tactics.

Edition: Mayfair, English.
Condition: Complete, very good.

Location: North side, preferably Dragon's Lair/Emerald Tavern/Nerdstock/Rogue's Gallery etc, but pretty flexible.

My wife and I played a best out of three of this today. It's a silly little game that plays quickly. It's a dexterity game where you're trying to get your moose from one riverbank to the other by flicking 'stones' (wooden discs) in your moose's path to allow him or her to cross without falling into the river.

I have a feeling that this game would be a blast if played while consuming some adult beverages. As it is, it serves as a fairly fun diversion for a few minutes.

I won the first game, my wife won the second, and then I managed a narrow victory in the third game.

Recommended for couples? (out of three stars) 1/2

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.
