• What can the "horse" do in the game of chess??

    Best answer: L shape. It's special because it can move over other pieces. If there's 2 pieces ahead of the knight it can jump over them.

  • In Yahtzee can you roll 4 of a kind but score it as 3 of a kind?

    Say you roll 4 of a kind, can you score it as 3 of a kind weather or not you have already a score 4 of a kind. I think I know the answer because in the rules it says you must have AT LEAST 3 of the same die but I need a better explanation to prove a point. "At least 3" means a minimum of 3 but my... show more
    Say you roll 4 of a kind, can you score it as 3 of a kind weather or not you have already a score 4 of a kind. I think I know the answer because in the rules it says you must have AT LEAST 3 of the same die but I need a better explanation to prove a point. "At least 3" means a minimum of 3 but my opponent doesn t see it that way. Please help, link to better detailed rules would be great though I understand at least. Thanks.

  • Poll: What are your top 5 favorite board games of all times?

    Best answer: That's a pretty mainstream top five. If I had to go for a top five of only games you could have found in high-street stores growing up, mine would have turned out a little different: 1: Space Crusade 2: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Board Game 3: Stratego 4: Escape from Atlantis 5: Scotland Yard If you want... show more
    Best answer: That's a pretty mainstream top five. If I had to go for a top five of only games you could have found in high-street stores growing up, mine would have turned out a little different:

    1: Space Crusade
    2: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Board Game
    3: Stratego
    4: Escape from Atlantis
    5: Scotland Yard

    If you want an actual top 5, then that's going to play out a little differently:

    1: Go
    2: Betrayal at House on the Hill
    3: Lost Cities
    4: Minion Hunter
    5: Carcassonne

    (This list is a bit arbitrary actually, and depending on the day, games such as Northwest Passage, Condotierre, Marvel Legendary, Star Wars Assault on Hoth, Heroclix, Through the Desert or Ingenious could easily make the grade).

    To be fair, here's the list of games that I play with my kids, so their favourites.

    1: City of Zombies
    2: Star Wars: Assault on Hoth
    3: Pegged Out
    4: Chicken Cha Cha Cha
    5: Super Rhino/Rhino Hero.

    I hope some of these are what you're looking for.

  • I'm making a sci-fi boardgame. What's a good title for it?

    Best answer: I'm with Squidmaster on this, a game like that feels like it needs a name tied to it's background, or the title may come of as quite generic. However, if generic is ok...

    Stellar Powers
    A Void Divided
    To Rule The Stars
    System by System
    Empires of the Suns
    StarTac
    Divided Space

  • How many of you actually play the game Monopoly following the official rules? I never did, and there were all kinds of family variants.?

    Best answer: The only two common "House Rules" that I play with Monopoly, which are pretty standard are... 1) Elimination of Auctions -- You must land on the property in order to buy it. This eliminated the potential arguments of playing favorites on auctions. 2) All Fines go into the "Free Parking"... show more
    Best answer: The only two common "House Rules" that I play with Monopoly, which are pretty standard are...

    1) Elimination of Auctions -- You must land on the property in order to buy it. This eliminated the potential arguments of playing favorites on auctions.

    2) All Fines go into the "Free Parking" Jackpot -- As hitting Free Parking is relatively difficult, we usually place a $500 seed at the start & all fines (taxes, jail fines & any fines from cards) would go into the jackpot (placed at the center of the board).

    Beyond those two houserules, everything else is by the book. When playing the digital versions of the game, I will stick more towards the officials rules... but may enact some house rules if the game permitted it.

    I play chess for brain development.. I am an average not perfect. However, people in the chess club and people that have read books on chess are wayyy better players than me... is it cheating? Can I also read about different tactics and learn form a chess club? or is it not helpful for what I am trying to do? Its the same way with Rubik's cube. I have a friend who sucked at it like me than she read directions and got wayy better. I hope my question and my confusion makes sense.

  • Do homemade Ouiji Boards work?

    Best answer: No, I can't think of anything that would make it not work as well as a commercially-manufactured one. Perhaps the spirits just aren't interested in coming to your house because you smell terrible.
