Steppin’ Stones

17 Dec

2steppinYou’re Stuck in the Muck and there’s only one way out … lay out a series of stepping stones and run your way across. Easier said than done, for in this game you are your own worst enemy … well OK, you’re the only player, so just try not to goof it up too much! A puzzling challenge for the analytical thinker – or a mindless diversion for the rest of us.

Ages: 8+

Players: 1

Interesting Features: While the rolling of so many dice may make this game seem overly random, to be successful you need to be very methodical in your planning. (WOW … Can I make this sound any LESS interesting?!)

Extras Needed: the piecepack game system.(You can download and print one for free HERE)

DOWNLOAD: STEPPIN’ STONES

Printing Suggestions: Rules are designed to be printed on both sides of the same 8.5X11

Designer’s Notes: Ah what a fool I’ve been! All these years of hiding in the basement working on games to try and avoid the dishes (see Dish Pan Hands) — when something far more hideous has been lurking ’round the bend. What I wouldn’t give for a carefree night of scraping plates and soapy water! Just so long as I don’t have to take my life in my hands and go near the explosive little boy called my brand new son. That little guy is loaded in both ends and just waiting to go off! A ticking time bomb of twelve kinds of muck and fluids (shudder). Perhaps this feeling trapped in an endless cycle of mucky diapers lead subconsciously to the theme for this game. All I know is that every once in a while a person needs a game they can play alone … in silence … by the light of a pocket flashlight … in the back of the storage room in the basement … where that adorable little diaper-bomb can’t find you. And where there are no dishes. Enjoy.
