    (This is not one of those two threads. I’d forgotten about this one.)

    (My listing a game in this thread doesn’t mean I think it’s good.)

    Mastermind – You’re meant to keep score. It is not possible that

    a competent opponent will not find your setup in the space given.

    Mille Bornes – Likewise, you’re meant to keep score, and also (possibly?) play in partnerships. (Presumably, this is meant to

    balance out the luck which matters a lot in the game.)

    Monopoly – The common Free Parking houserule makes the game

    longer, which is probably not what you want for Monopoly.

    (The game relies on people running out of money to end,

    so randomly giving people money works against that.)

    Tap tap trio. The one who’s “it” is supposed to count to 100, but most people do less.

    I solve the issu by not playing at all. It takes much less time that way.

    Good for you. 🙂

    I forgot to mention that the game takes less time when you use the

    auction rule, which also slightly improves the game, but not enough

    to make it worth playing.

    Battleship – It’s not against the rules, but it is totally unnecessary

    (and time-consuming) to mark your opponent’s shots on your board.

    most games we played were played “wrong”, except that that was the right way to play. We altered games for shabbos use or to be more to our liking and we stuck with those rules.
