First High-Level Strategy Game since Chess!
June 22, 2007

I just finished a series of games, whew!

Farook (soon re-named WIZDOM is a 4x4 version of Tic-tac-toe with 3 kinds of "jewels" - yours, mine & wild that count for both players.

To win you must make a winning pattern with 4 in a row, 4 in a tight square formation or the 4 corners. It looks like a sack of jewels that is carried in the pocket.

the game is age rated 6-106 and looks easy until you play. Then the decision tree and your mind explodes. But you have only one minute to make a move, or lose the game so let your thoughts race through the gazillions of possibalities.

The Inventor, Stewart Lamle is comming out with this game again under the name WIZDOM. Look for it. It will be packed with a CD-ROM for computer and Internet play at 7 levels (really its 10 levels with the 3 plus levels). If you beat the game at Champion Level (level 7) the program makes a file to send to the inventor for a certificate and each year if you win in the fewest moves at Level 7 you will win $1,000.

Im still shaking as if I've been in a street brawl.
