Watch out!

    I’m terrible at Polyomino, but that’s all going to change. My four year old daughter promised me to teach me some tricks.

    So, blokus is exactly the same game of Polyomino ?

    @klaashaas: She’s adorable! And good job starting her with games by age 4. :)

    @kaashaas: Impressive! Does your daughter have an account at LG?

    Looking at all those pieces – is it just me, or does anyone else want to play polyomino with chocolate? Winner gets all the loser’s remaining pieces.

    @PhatFil – actually those colored pieces remind me more of gummy bears like candies (except for the format, of course)

    In Korea, I bought what looked like a bar of chocolate, and found brown plastic chocolate shaped pentomino pieces. It was in the games section, not at the candy counter.

    @MRFvR – the fact the substance looked like something gummy or boiled was indeed the first step towards considering confectionary as a playing piece. I considered the grid-nature to be the more important, and suddenly I was imagining chocolate...

    I own a chocolate connexion game from Andreas Kuhnekath, Steffen Mühlhäuser named Scho K.O.

    awww that is just too cute :)

  • klaashaas at 2013-04-18

    @kpato Yes, it is. We own the junior version. It also includes a few puzzles for solitaire play.

    @z Are you looking for a trainer?:) No, she does not have an account here. I think 4 year old is a bit too young for that. Maybe I’ll sign up my 6 year old soon but at the moment, he’s more interested in playing Skylanders on the wii... Make me wonder what the youngest player at LG is?

    I do play othello and capture Go with my kids. They understood the rules of othello very quickly, but Go is a too abstract for them. A few days ago, my LG friend Tim Shih told me a nice metaphor for Go. It explains go as a game with dragons and castles. A castle is a structure with at least two windows (or one large windows), a dragon that cannot fly to his castle, will die. If there is enough room, a dragon can build a new castle and then it’s safe. Next time, I’ll play Dragons and Castles with my kids:)
