Opened the door and there was a box! Let's see what was in there!

Today I received two giant boxes, from both Satan and Thrifty Santa, and it made me pause. Were they one and the same?

Satan had addressed his to my board handle, forever outing myself to my mail carrier as a joshi fan. This is a classic joshi match.

What did I find inside the box?



From bottom to top we have Legends of the Guardians, some abstract about owls or something? A game board from a Cranium game. Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Monopoly, this has some really cool movers, and I actually know someone who will enjoy this. The movers actually glow in the dark, which is a nice touch, however the rest of the game does not so that's real useful, huh? Tripoley, useful if I ever find myself in Michigan I suppose. Glory to Rome Black Box, this is still sealed, and I'm honestly afraid to open it because "Glory to Rome Black Box" sounds too good to be true. A handful of scrabble tiles. Some chits from the board game Eclipse. Punched counter sheets from a GMT game. A Conclave of Wyrms, this one looks temptingly playable, must be a trick. A mini backgammon style case full of dominoes, these dominoes have a small gold bump on the middle of their faces, does anyone know why that is? Topping it all off is Silver the Beanie Baby.

Thank you, dark lord, for the wondrous gifts bestowed.

Edit: I forgot, there was a green pen included as well. It probably does not write.

Wow, you probably got the GTR Black Box before some Kickstarter supporters!

Also, I see a copy of Balderdash under the coffee table. Credibility revoked.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for games about lying. (Also in the coffee table games, Liar's dice and Wise and Otherwise)

That makes it easier to move the dominoes around when they are face-down. "Partner Dominoes" (2 teams of 2) is great. It's very similar to Tichu, in a way, in that you need to work with your partner and figure out how to help each other. The best version IMO is the Puerto Rico/Jamaican rules: 28 dominoes, 7 each (no draw pile or unused tiles).

Cloudy: you should edit your OP and change Santa to Satan...

Spellfire had it all - recycled artwork AND bad gameplay!

I think this is the third time I have posted this. Once in the taunting thread, once in the necro'd thread from last year, and now here. I am still trying to figure out what the small black box of cards is. I asked a Japanese friend to translate them, and he huffily replied that it was Chinese and implied that I had soiled his honor. They are textured on the back, and the front contains contemporary, almost cartoonish asian art with a few english words and numbers. I think they're called "Flowers of YongJang" or something similar. The Netrunner deck boxes fit the game perfectly, in terms of their visuals. I was ready to go buy Tichu, so I'm glad Sticheln arrived. A nice and quirky haul.

They're Hanafuda cards, of Korean origin. I didn't include rules for any games to play with them because I am SATAN!
