Press your Luck games
I recently did a search for games with the press/push your luck mechanic and found out that there is no category for these games! So, I went to game that I knew had this mechanic (Diamant) and it's mechanic is listed as N/A. Thinking this was a fluke, I went to another press your luck game, (Cloud 9). It too had N/A as the mechanic! Finally, I went to a classic (Can't Stop). Once again - no mechanic.Recommend
My purpose for this list is twofold. First I want this list to be a collection of all games with a press your luck element (and hopefully get boardgamegeek to add it as a mechanic category).
Secondly, I am designing my own game with a press your luck mechanic (although it uses other mechanics as well), and I wanted to know people's opinion of the mechanic in general. Why is it not used more in games? What are its strengths, its weaknesses? The games made to date have been of the quick, light filler variety. Could this mechanic work in other types of games? Discuss.
