Games Leathermen Play

Today, all of my furniture arrived from the storage facility in Colorado. So, for the first time in over a year, everything I own is under one roof. This includes my large collection of board games. So, instead of unpacking more boxes, Master Thor (thornyc) decided we should relax by playing something. It was a cold rainy night here in Washington DC, and not worth venturing out anyways. I won the best two-out-of-three at Dungeon Dice, but Master Thor beat me to the finish line in Fireball Island. Usually, He just beats me in different ways!

Fireball Island is a very strange game. Since it was published in 1986, it has garnered a cult following. Copies are sold on ebay for around $200. I'm not sure the game deserves that much accolades. At first Master Thor thought the rules were complicated ("This game will never end!") but it proved to have a fun endgame, as He and I stole the winning fireball crystal back and forth, until Master Thor won. I would like to play this game with four people - I bet it's a lot of fun, as well as pure chaos.
