Description It's a Collectible Card Game based on the popular anime series Saint Seiya, all in Japanese.
Comments
Picked up at Goodwill still in shrinkwrap for $2.
Interested! They apply to this, as well. We have found it's a great game to take along when we go out to eat... Mini-Shogi wouldn't be half as interesting without the unique capturing mechanism, which keeps it from being repetitive. Too bad, that this game is not commercially available (at least I'm not aware of). Will definitely play again with them if asked.
Like most of the expansions, this one just muddles the issue.

Description Howzat is an unusual game designed to master the four fundamental operations of Arithmetic i.e. This game is one of those 'painfully simple' Reiner Knizia games. (The cards only go through Ezra Taft Benson.) There are also four suits, Beehives, Buffalo Skulls, Seagulls, and Wagon Wheels. Place events in time and put time in its place.
Comments
2 games played Very simple and fast game. It's an amazing game if you consider how fun the gaming experience is compared to the minimal rules. To many cards to sort out and get the feel in to be able to build a good deck.
Not really interested in this one until the boxes make their way to the bottom of the clearance bins (but wanted to go ahead and add it to my list so that I do not forget) and I can obtain in bulk.

Description This is another MINIS game from Zvezda based upon the 14th Century "Battle of Kulikovo" between Russian Knights and the 'Mongol Horde'. Highest bidder wins a point, having 3 points more than the opponent wins the game. It adds an element of luck to a game that never had any. "It’s 1924.
Comments
It was my first boargame, and without this game, I had never discover the Wargames or the RPG ! Our own rules are naturally much better than the real ones. Negative rating for the way the rules and components make me NOT want to play it.
4-player board only. Now my family play warangel that has same flavour.

Description Find the letters needed to complete the words on your game board. The core is made of famous figures like the Red Riding Hood, the Wolf or perhaps a Dragon. Whoever completes all phases first wins. Each army has 12 hard plastic pieces depicting various soldiers or weapons. A game of aerial strategy. Marshal your horrific horde of Sturmzombies with the diabolical Gretel von X. The game was originally marketed by A.N. Raid the Axis supply lines as a desperate leader of the Free French Radwraiths. Do all this and oh, so much more."
Comments
Is an okay abstract strategy game. I like the "show, move, then hide" mechanic, but the age of the game hasn't been kind to the plastic pieces. }:-) You might be interested in my explanation/defense of my Siberian Reserve Gamble rule, in other of my games besides MD!

Description In Elasta, the players take place at opposite sides of a Chess board. A harsh, cold wind blows across the steppes of Russia. Produced by the local Rotary club as a fund raiser. Game sheet pad. Online Play. 6 pencils. • The purposes have both good and evil sides, so both players can attempt them, regardless of their side. This is a medium-high complexity game with high unit density. • Cards have a corruption cost, so the more powerful cards can only be played later in the game, and only by players of that alignment.
Comments
Will sell/trade locally.
I wasn't sure how much I liked it after my first pseudo-play ... Good sim of the different forces capabilities and limfacs: Germans have better leaders (well the only leaders in this game), morale, and unit cohesion.
Russian Front, chit activation system.
Great, light, and short stock game. Probably a better game for the ages of 10-12 or so. Nice bits. Speaking of which, I definitely like the artillery rules-elegant way to simulate the logistics issues of firing off a "load" of ammunition. Causing your enemy to retreat into one or more ZOCs is great fun, especially when using a weaker unit as a backstop. Any units that operate at night become disrupted and pretty much useless for the next day, so you think twice about making night attacks. The map is functional if not a feast for the eye.

I LOVED this game growing up -- my parents would have friends over all the time to play. Basis of the 18XX series. Pretty entertaining light filler! Haven't played in many years.

Description Everyone knows the cake rules: one person cuts,the other chooses. Players roll a die to determine what category of question to answer. It comes in a small hard plastic case, similar to Pass the Pigs. 1970s releases by Ravensburger are reportedly the same as the 2001 re-release by Berliner Spielkarten, a new division of Ravensburger. There is also a twelve-sided die with "GENI" on some of the faces. Jockey was also published in the Ravensburger Casino Series. Select 10 randomly and roll, repeating twice for a possible 30 dice FORCE POOL [some may be chosen over others].
Comments
Purchased from gognatz for $12 It is a game based on the I divide-you chose mechanic, and features two separate scoring mechanisms to make the dividing and chosing a little trickier than you'd think at first. Comes in a small box, so easy to store and transport.
Useful compilation of the many tables needed to play.
I like this one a lot and worst case for those that don't is that it's over in 20 minutes. There are enough fotos here on BGG for me to make a decent facsimile. First game ended up with $5,500; winner had $6,200 based mostly on a wild round 3 bet. Too much like a memory game. ***THIS GAME GOT THE BONE***
