I realized I left off the age group and all the other details.
I run both an after school game club and teach a class on Higher Order Thinking Skills through puzzles and games. The kids are approximately 15 years old.
So far they have played Treehouse, Drip, and just today I introduced them to Zendo. One thing I considered was giving them the rules to the games in the competition and evaluating them. This still is an exercise I may do if I print out their rules.
I would love to have them do Homeworlds but I'm hoping to do games that I could teach myself and unfortunately Homeworlds is up there with Icehouse as two games that I just can't figure out how to play (let alone teach) from just the written rules.
Good call on Black Ice though. I have the Threehouse booklet from Origins on the shelf so I could break that out as one of the games.
Ora, lege, lege, lege, relege, labora et invenies.
