Fun hidden identity game
July 08, 2008

Roll and move race game in which every player may move any pawn and must move two pawns each turn. Nice twist in that these aren't races you always want to win -- sometimes the prize is negative points (surly tomatoes) rather than positive points (happy garlic) and sometimes more points are available if you wait to be second.

Plays best with 3 -- with two, identities are too obvious and with four, it's kind of rote (help yourself and the other player least threatening to you). But with three there's plenty of room for bluffing.

Make sure to show all the vampire tiles at the beginning and point out that the background colors define the relevant pawn. I've had both an adult and a 4 year old misunderstand who they were supposed to be because they looked at the color of the vampire's face (blue-green) instead of the dominant color on the tile.
