nmbrs! blocks edition
Inspired by our cardsgame, we have developed a variant in wooden blocks. We have produced a first 'limited edition'. We have chosen to work with a producer that is member of the World Fair Trade Organization: Golden Palm Crafts in Sri Lanka.
The game is simple. There are several variants, but the general concept is as follows:
- the game consists of wooden blocks numbered 1 to 100 and 4 'joker' blocks
- every player gets 7 blocks
- when it is your turn, you take a block from the blind stock
- you try to make logical sequences (such as in the examples below), and put them on the table
- you can link sequences together, and also add blocks vertically to existing series
- at the end of each turn, the player throws away one block he cannot use
- if another player can use this block, he can take it but he has to take one additional block from the blind stock
- the player that first gets rid of all his blocks, wins the round
- the other players count their remaining blocks, a joker counts for 3
- the points are noted and the overall winner (at the end of a number of rounds) is the player with the least points
The game can be played from 7-99 years. For small children, you can play just with blocks 1-50. One round typically takes 5-10 minutes. So playing a few rounds typically takes 15-45 minutes.
For the detailed rules, see the spelregels (in Dutch) or rules of the game (in English).
