In My Own Words:
I have very individualistic views - sometimes controversial - but never shy away from what I truly feel and/or believe in. I do not run with the crowd - but equally I do not believe in running against it for its sake only. If I happen to like a CD, book or film, and praise it as a result, and it happens to receive great national critical acclaim too - then it's genuine; I don't fake it to pl… Read more

I love reading, listening to music and watching DVDs and collecting too many things...

University Games 32 Dice Strategy Game by University Games
5.0 out of 5 stars DICE DOMINATOR!!, 25 July 2014
This should have been my favourite of all the games I possess in my collection (around 700) as it consists of nothing but dice - which I love; even the placing of the playing pieces to start relies on the roll of each of the thirty-two dice - and it's even the dice that serve as the playing pieces also - and so what could possibly be wrong?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very strategic!, 25 July 2014
A two-player game, where `fences' are eliminated in order to leave your opponent `stranded'!

Each player makes a move in a straight line and hops over fences. This can be one or several fences - the first one that is hopped over is removed from the game.

The idea of the game is to leave your opponent `stranded' so that they are left unable to make any more `legal' moves. A lot of thinking ahead in this one - but not so much that people will grow beards between turns like chess!!

Good game!

I purchased Ghost Stories - which is my first in the `cooperative' genre actually, because it had been drawn to my attention via a YouTube Video that this was as good a game to play solo as it was with others, and as I don't always have someone to play my games with, thought it may be a good idea to try.

Despite having a collection of around 700 board games - and been collecting now for more years than I care to remember, I did not realise they made games that could be played solo! Of course, any game can be played solo really - if one were to take the role of two players - but I can't see that would be much fun, and so when I spotted this, and learned there were quite a few… Read more
