binging on games

My local comic shop got a shipment of new games recently. I've been researching some of these, and was planning to buy 'em online, but this works just as well. I bought:
  • Letter Head
    It's a deck of playing cards, where each card features a letter and a corresponding point value. Like Scrabble pieces, only better thought out. With these cards comes a book, containing rules for 15 different word games. Most of them are 2-8 players, but they've got a few solitaire variations, which are useful if your friends can't spell.

  • Proton
    A two-player strategy game with the mechanism of a sliding-block puzzle. Fits in your pocket. What's not to love?

  • Q-Turn
    Another one of those "just when you thought you've won, the rules change" games I love so much. 2-4 players.

  • Twitch
    Looks fairly mindless, but fun. Here's hoping. (It was cheap)
Next trick: find opponents.
  • Current Mood
