A few have asked, so I thought I’d explain this game called Sac Noir. There are many ways to play that keep it exciting, but the premise is that you’re trying to stack these impossible-looking blocks. It forces you to think creatively, and you end up surprising yourself and others as you try to stack the:
Christmas Tree, poo pile, ear plug, golf tee, egg, cup, ball, etc.
You have to pick pieces in order, ahead of time, but beware, others can steal your pieces, messing up even the most carefully-laid plans. Red objects are harder, so stacking them earns you a bean that you can use to use a piece out of order.
It’s hard to believe, but this is one of my favorite all-time games, hands-down. If you want to try it out, there’s a cheaper version is called Bausack, which runs about $50, whereas you can expect to pay $90 for the 100 piece gem that my friend owns…
