LCR - Left Center Right Dice Game
Price $6.95
Sale Price: $4.95

This game is wildly popular.

The luck of your roll tells you whether to give a chip to the person on your right, put some in the center, or give to to the left. We suspect that some people may be using coins rather than chips to boost interest. Set comes with three dice, rules and two dozen chips in a plastic tube.

Wizard Card Game - Original Edition
Price $7.95

Wizard is a several times selection of Games Magazine. Wizard is a trumps and bidding game which is easier for kids than hearts (fewer cards to hold, quicker rounds) and as appealing to adults as euchre. In the first round, each player gets one card; there will be one trick. Everyone bids. In the second round there are two tricks. Total of bids may or may not equal the number of tricks available. At the end of the round, each player who makes his bid gets 20 points plus 10 per trick one. Miss your bid and lose 10 points per trick.

Here's how one thoughtful reader responded, "Hi - I'm not too happy with your review of Wizard. We are four adult female relatives who happily play Wizard all afternoon once a week, and have done so for two years straight! It's like Spades plus wild cards, only better. It's a wonderful, wonderful game and I can't figure out why it's not better known - but I don't know anyone who's heard of it.* It's much more interesting than Euchre because of the added risk, and also because it calls for more skill in bidding and taking tricks; that's not a good comparison (Euchre bores us). It's a TERRIFIC game and we're so glad I happened on it at your Keystone Crossing store! - Mary et al. (Indianapolis) Mary also wrote, "We wore out enough sets of cards that we eventually bought plastic cards and made up our own sets, buying blank cards to label 'Wizards'. The cards are not of great quality - poorer quality than generic poker cards you can buy in the drug store."

Another customer testimonial came when I was showing Wizard to a customer in our store recently. A shopper who happened to be standing nearby chimed in. She said, "Our family loves Wizard...even the people who claim not to like cards. We call it the card game for people who don't play card games." She made the sale. * Note to Mary, somebody has heard of Wizard. It has led our card games department in sales for the past two years.

Quiddler *On Sale*
Price $11.95

A fast, appealing, and inexpensive word card game. Sort of a gin rummy with words. You start with three cards in your first hand, four on your next, and so on until you are dealt ten cards for your last hand. The challenge is to meld your entire hand into words. Draw and discard in turn. Try to use high scoring letters, but don't get caught with them uncombined. Quiddler rewards forming even short words because there is a bonus for making the most words in each round. Another bonus is rewarded for the longest word played in the round. Quicker and less intimidating than Scrabble Appealing card designs. Solitaire rules included.

Excellent alternative to Cards Against Humanity
Personally Incorrect
Our Price: $26.95

Can't find Cards Against Humanity? This is a great alternative.


Ever played a party game that just got more and more offensive through the night? Me too! So instead we decided to start one that way. This game is sexist, ageist, racist, and downright dirty. Basically if you get offended by anything, go play some other lame game!

Not only do you get to make up absolutely outrageous allegations, but you get to make them up about someone sitting right at your table! If you're playing with close friends - watch out! Inside jokes and embarrassing facts might just take center stage.

Unlike similar games where the question reader is king and decides who handed over the best answer, all players except for the reader get to vote with the reader acting only as a tie breaker.

Curses, The Party Game of
Price $27.50

You're under a curse such as: you may not bend your elbows. Or your curse may be that whenever someone says the name of a food, you must say "that sounds delicious !" Then your turn comes around and you're given a task to accomplish, say, trying to get another player to switch long distance phone services or to wait tables at a diner.

Catch someone not doing his curse and ring the bell. You are one step closer to winning. On your turn, after you accomplish your task (while remembering to observe all your curses), you get to draw and assign the next curse to the player of your choice. He could end up in a situation where he is supposed to explain to a cop why he was speeding while speaking like a grizzled old pirate "Avast ye Matey" and speaking like an upper crust Englishman. Contradictory curses, too bad.

Curses sets up some very, very funny situations. The more creative and uninhibited your friends, the more fun you will have. Cointains 120 game cards, rules, and bell to ring.

Spinner Dominoes
Retail Price $31.95
Price $31.95
currently unavailable

Double Nine dominoes with a "spin". Eleven tiles with the Spinner symbol add interesting offensive and defensive strategies to the game. Spinners are wild. Spinners are once again our most popular domino game, closely followed by Mexican Train Dominos.

Packed in a decorative tin case.

Bridge Coaching Tablecloth
Price $39.95

A woven fabric (polyester?) tablecloth with very lucid bridge bidding and scoring information screen-printed along each side.

Having recently taught our teenagers the basics of bridge, I can attest that beginning and intermediate players will find this an invaluable tool. As a matter of fact, I'm still referring to the hints on what to lead. Includes point counts, opening and responding bids, Blackwood, what to lead, how to keep score, and much more.

Table cloth measures 44 x 44 inches to fit most card tables. Edges are whip-stitched.
