First play: Parade

Managed to finally get a hold of this little card game which I heard some pretty good things about.  The game itself took very little time to explain (despite the horrendously overcomplicated rules page - thanks, Z-man!) and we got right into it.  It's pretty darn simple.  Each turn one plays a numbered card to the end of the "parade" which may cause them to take  cards already in the parade.  The number on the card played determines exactly what subset of cards in the parade one might have to take and, in an Uno-like way, which of those must be taken.  Any cards taken score their face-value against you at the end of the game.  Low score wins.

Sounds pretty simple and this would be a tedious game of luck if not for the scoring rules.  Having a majority in any colour at the end of the game let's you flip those cards so they only count one against you.  So now suddenly you WANT to take certain cards and things get a bit more complicated.  The decisions aren't heavy but they're definitely quite interesting.  All 6 of us liked the first game and definitely want to try it again.  Cool little filler, methinks...

  2. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.

    En vacker konstnärlig skapelse av vävt läder, som ger ett skalskaligt utseende - liknar en snakeskin eller fiskhud, linjer utsidan av påsen. Läderens bältros är små läderringar. Det finns också gyllene accenter på väskan. Slutresultatet är svagt liknar kedjepost.

  3. Jain monks and nuns are encouraged to live austere lives. Many show this by wearing plain, white robes. In the Digambara sect, however, monks reject all forms of worldy possessions, including clothes. But this season, the women on Game of Thrones have felt impotent. Sansa and Shireen have had no control over their respective fates, and even the so called powerful women have been neutralized. The Sand Snakes, who were touted as a feminist force and potential fan favorites, fizzled.
