I Hate Rules
Ever have your eyes glaze over during the rule explanation of a new game? Intense strategy games or games with lots of rules can be overwhelming for many people. People think hard all day long so when social time arrives, some of us just want to relax. When I play a game for fun, I donâ€™t want to have to think too hard about strategy or rules.
Now that weâ€™re done with rules, here are some free tips to aid your playing experience:
- If all pieces have been played and no one has won, continue play by moving the pieces that were already played.
- If you stack too high and cause a stack to topple, you lose. Maximum recommended height is 8 pieces.
- Try speed Fourple. Each player must make a move within 10 seconds of the previous move.
- Choose your style of play: The Wall- simplest, Stonehenge - circular, Cubicle - 3D cube
â€śWe always have fun at your houseâ€ť
I wanted an icebreaker activity in my home that would help put my guests at ease and make their visit more fun. We do not have many game nights devoted to a particular game but when we have friends and family over, we want them to enjoy their time with us. I have purchased many games over the years to try to accomplish this goal.
What would a toy inventor do?
As a toy inventor and informal education specialist I am all about discovering how to make games, toys and learning environments more engaging and effective. I spend my time teaching educators and museums how to engage their students/visitors with active, hands on learning methods.
At our house we donâ€™t just sit around and talk. We do something.
Many children (and adults) are addicted to video games and electronic entertainment. Your only hope for an antidote is an alternative option that is at least as compelling as the hypnotic video screen. Fourple works. Administer in small doses to develop a healthy resistance to video addiction. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
FourpleÂ is not just another game to be forgotten in the closet. We made it from beautiful American Birch so you can leave it out to compliment the decor of your home. It can be your go-to activity for almost any guest. Toddlers? Give them some Fourple blocks to play with - thatâ€™s all you need.
