Essen 2015 – Hack Trick
Hacking a Keypad.
Noughts and Crosses, but good.
You have a 3×3 grid and cards numbered 0-5.
One player is dealt 4, the other 3.
The player with the 4 cards discards one and each player says the total of their 3 cards out loud.
Then you play a card on top of the discarded card and put a token of your colour on the number equal to the total of the previous 2 cards. So if a 1 was discarded and you play a 4, you put a counter on the 5.
If the next person plays a 2, 4+2=6 so it goes on the 6.
You’re trying to get 3 in a row or 3 on one number.
You can capture your opponents pieces by picking a number they have a piece on and you can use these, and you own, for abilities.
It’s a fun light game that requires a rules check. Some timing issues and rules interpretations need clarification. But, it’s a good game.
