I'm doing a project in my class sometime next week where a few groups of
kids will be given the rules to an Icehouse game they have never played
before. They will read the rules, learn the game, and try teaching it
to another group of kids.
I am going to need 5-6 games that people would recommend as being decent
games to use. Something fun, 2-4 players, plays in under 40 minutes,
and doesn't need any ridiculous extras. I have standard things,
chessboards, marbles, pawns, poker chips, dice etc.
So, hit me with some recommendations. :)
How old are the kids? Would Homeworlds be beyond them?
Treehouse is an obvious one. IceTowers, Martian Chess, Cracked Ice,
Martian Mud Wrestling; all are relatively easy to learn. Pylon and
Penguin Soccer (and maybe Zamboni Wars?) from the current IGDC are also
pretty simple to teach.
