Comments on SpeedyTowersRules0.6

# 4 Comments. # My wife and I enjoyed this game. Briskly paced and a great combination of dexterity, reaction, and a little strategy. One clarifying question we had on the rules was whether each player's coin stash should be stacked, with only the top one accessible (as with the tiles), or spread out with all available. We tried it both ways, and both were fun in their own ways. If the coins are supposed to be stacked, we thought the game would move better if you could place values greater than or equal to the number on top of the tower (we got stuck a couple of times). When we spread the coins out, it was kind of fun trying to remember what was on the back of all of them, there was a more strategic element in placement, and the "greater than" stacking rule kept things moving just fine. Flipping coins looking for a match added to the frenetic pace of the game. If coins are supposed to be spread out, it would be helpful to establish whether they should be hidden from other players or visible (though the game does move fast enough that there's not much benefit to wasting time looking at an opponent's pieces). Thanks for a fun experience!

Could you please comment on what "N->2->3->4->5->A->N" means? Do you mean "N < 2 < 3 < 4 < 5 < A < N" where "<" means "less than"? Thanks.

Ron, I think the author meant "N→2→3→4→5→A→N", but didn't know how to make a proper rightward arrow.

Thanks for your comment Dan.

I play with my pieces spread out, so all the coins are available but it's fine to play with only one available as long as you're both playing by the same rules.

If you get stuck you can also flip your current tile back over and uncover another one, as long as you only have one face up at a time.

I've only played with the pieces visible to both opponents, as you said I never have time to look at the other player's pieces.

Ron I meant that from lowest to highest the order is N 2 3 4 5 A N, I will clarify it in the rules.

Thank you James, that's what I meant, but I will clarify it in the rules.
