I did not want to like Poo. I have not purchased Poo, and have avoided playing Poo until last night. The game is simple, you are a monkey who is throwing poo at your fellow monkeys. If your hit with 15 Poo, you out. As you can imagine, it invokes a lot of gross humor???
Afterwards, we played Leaping Lemmings. It plays 2-6 scientists who have genetically engineered Lemmings who want to jump of the cliff for points. Dawson shared that it felt more like a game of collecting food pellets. I have to agree with him. on a scale of 1-10, it is a four. However the theme and production is very good.
Tammy and I are 2 & 2 in Droid Scrabble. I have yet to best her record setting 121 point play. I did pull out a classic Sid Sackson game while tailgating at the Missouri vs. Colorado game this past Saturday, Buy Word. It is a very fun simple word spelling game. The goal is to have the most money at the end of the game. After drawing tiles 2-5 tiles, you pick which ones you want and pay the amount of pips squared. For example, if the letter tile is an "E" that has one pip, you pay 1 squared = $1 to the bank. Then after everyone has paid for their tiles, you sell you word for the total pips squared. So if you bought 1 tile in three rounds for $1 each, and to spell the word CAT. You could sell the word for 3 pips squared for $9. Making a profit of $6. More challenging letters have more pips such as the Z, Q, or X. After spelling your word, the letters go in the box. There are several variants such as drafting tiles, trading, or auctioning as well as playing them on the table in a crossword format. It is a very fun game, that may get lots of plays this winter.
Project X had a slow but steady week.
