So I was browsing on Ebay and caught a nice stomach-lurching OMG surprise. Right there, someone was selling a game that was my favorite as a kid. It’s called Downfall and please tell me you loved it?

I got it and it arrived with all the pieces. It’s great for every age and every stage and great for Shabbos playing! This is my new addiction now!

From the geek site I posted above:

Quote:
This Sid Sackson classic was actually released in the United States, but it never did well enough commercially to stay in print for more than a couple of years. The idea is quite simple. There is a board with all the possible results of two six-sided dice: two through twelve. The object of the game is to move a little marker to the top of three columns by rolling that result, but you need many more sevens than you need twelves, based on the likelihood of each result. During your turn, you roll the dice and place temporary markers onto the board. You can continue moving these markers until either none of your dice match (your turn is over and all progress you've made is gone), or cut your losses and end your turn (placing a permanent marker in your rows). Nice light filler for opening or closing a session.


It's quite addictive, great for a Shabbos afternoon, easy enough for little kids and a lot of fun Smile.
