I teach 90 minute math blocks in a residential treatment center and school for adjudicated and pre-adjudicated boys ranging form 11 to 18 years of age. I use TriBond to start my classes. The boys absolutely love participating. It is a good way to start an otherwise boring class to some. TriBond gives them something to look forward to each day. We have been entering the TriBond Contest with hopes of winning a board game.
Maybe Greg (below) is too much of a genius for this game. But my friends and I agree that Tribond is the best party game around. Some of the Miscellaneous category questions are brilliant, and the gameplay allows for sudden reversals. If you're looking for a strategy game, then go try The Settlers of Catan. But if you're looking for a great game to play with your non-nerd friends, definitely try Tribond. If you want to try sample questions, go to the Tribond web site at www.tribond.com.
Keep in mind that this is a party game, and you'll do fine. It can be a lot of fun, but it's never too mentally taxing.
The object is to move your pieces along three seperate tracks by answering clues. The clues consist of three words or names, and the player must guess what they have in common. The clues range from obvious to arcane, but of course that all depends on your background. There are many times when clues are easy for some and completely unknown to others. The first player to move all three of his pieces to the end of their respective tracks wins.
The game plays very quickly and invites a lot of competition between the players. On the down side, the clues are more often easy than obscure. It is entirely possible for a player to win the game on his first turn. Also, the box of clues is rather small, so that it doesn't take too many games before you start to see repeats.
Overall, it's a good party game, but definitely more on the beer and pretzels end of the scale.
