Ever played Phase 10? The original is card-based but there is also a dice-based one that’s pretty fun. The card-based is by far the more established game, so it’s the one most people have played. If you’ve never played it, the deck consists of essentially two decks of playing cards. Each round you get 10 cards and every turn you draw a card and then discard one. You try to make certain combos of cards, like 2 sets of 3, a run of 8, 2 sets of 4, etc. There are 10 phases in all that have to be done in order and the first one to finish all 10 phases wins. It’s pretty fun but I always thought it would be interesting to mix it up a bit and recently I got a chance to experiment with the game.

One of the things I found in my Christmas stocking was a new game called CLR. It stands for “Center, Left, Right” and is an easy little game involving dice and chips. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but it looks like a fun little game. That got me to thinking about other stocking stuffer games I’ve received over the years. If you’re looking for a small gift for a gamer friend here are some to consider. So I guess I should have written this post right before Christmas, not right after 🙂
