Slightly too addicted to Mapominoes
on 8 January 2010
We are addicted to this odd little game. It punctuates our lives - "let's go out-one more game of mapominoes-okay-we ought to do the washing up-one more game..." I'm sure it is educational - I can tell you all the borders and flags of every two bit little country in Europe (And Afica!)but it does lead you into slightly dangerous conversations - I've managed to accidentally offend people of different nationalities eg "I hate Bulgaria I always get it mixed up with Hungary and forget it'll go on Turkey" or "Croatia's okay but Serbia's much better you can get anywhere from there..."
If you like tactical games and enjoy patterns you will find this game an absolute gem. You will get stupidly addicted, understand why the mere mention of San Marino, Malta or Swaziland makes me miserable and then buy all the other continents and dream of getting enough of your (slightly sceptical) friends into it so you could play a whole world game and still be able to hold your cards.
