|122norfolk||8||8||Yes ||The reviewer SMITHEMB describes this game perfectly. We too found that player elimination caused some problems. We now play until someone gets three tokens and then start a another round, after a set number of rounds the person who had the fewest tokens wins. This solved the problem of player elimination.
|smithhemb||7||8||Yes || A bluffing/bidding/deduction game in which each player wears a numerical card in a headband -- everyone can see all of the cards except his/her own. Starting player offers a guess as to what the total number represented by the sum of all headbands would be; subsequent players may either raise or call. Once someone calls, all of the cards are placed in the center and the value is determined (in addition to numerical cards (which are both negative and positive), there are some special cards that affect your calculations). If the last guess was less than or equal to the total, then the player who called loses a point (indicated by a token placed on his/her headband). If it was higher than the total, then the guesser loses a point. Lose 3 points and you're eliminated.
In some editions of this game, feathers are withdrawn from the headband (rather than tokens added) when you lose a point. Last player with any feathers wins. I'd probably prefer this approach (and it would be easy to retrofit to the velcro-tokens edition).
Handles up to 6 players (4's probably a minimum) which is useful. Involves player elimination which may be a problem depending on the kids involved.
