Quandry/Thor for Cheapskates!
May 20, 2004

I love this simple yet anxiety filled little game. Your betting on which chips will be the most valuable at the end and this can be a surce of much thought and sneaky tactics. It's a bargain!

Once again this great designer has make a game that makes you slap your head and say 'why didn't I think of that?'.

The makings of a classic if only it was marketed well.

Remake of Flinke Pinke

This is a great little game, short enough to be considered a 'filler', and very tense. One rule from the original game that we will definitely carry over, is awarding 2 points to any players who end up with less chips at the end of a round. Since the round can end at any moment, there are often some players with one less chip. This 2 point score offsets that slight disadvantage.

A rule variant I came across which apparently the designer heard about and considered a good option is to NOT allow a player to take a chip of the same color as the card just played. This causes lots of delicious anguish.

This is a great example of how Reiner Knizia can take a few simple numbers, and create a masterpiece of a game.

Quandary is a brilliant little game, and those components are top notch.

It's great for playing with kids and they usually love to use their math skills to find out the winner. Sure would be nice if I could win a game or two!

As is typical of Knizia's scoring systems, there's a nice calculating system similar to Lost Cities.

Comes in a nice big box and feels really good to play too.
