The Coloured Space Game


This game requires one of 2 players (or more) to keep track of the score on a document. The design of the score counter can be seen throughout this article. The image above is not what the score sheet would look like.

The Coloured Space Game
...has been a game used in boring conversations since before conversations even got boring. Basically whilst chatting to a friend of yours you can begin to start and wonder if they'll catch on.
First you have to stack the coloured square boards.
'I've just stacked my coloured space boards.'
Your opponent must then stack theirs as well. This can be done without any real eye contact as well.
So that is your beginning line, 'I've just stacked my coloured space boards.'

Then it is your opponents turn.
They can either choose to
'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'
or 'Corner the greens'
Both of these have different tables.
This is Corner the Greens:

EACH STACK HAS TEN BOARDS


If your oponent crosses out more than 2/4 circles you have to take one board off of the stack.
'I've taken my board off of the stack.'
You may wonder what
'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'
does.
Well
it is PLUS points.
Once you have sent TEN of these you will BEAT your opponent in one go. Every single board in the stack has to go. But of course it works the other way around, if they give you TEN boom you're gone and they win.

so, you have to choose between taking boards one by one (Corner the greens) or adding up snizzle and whip points.

Have fun not understanding what i mean!

IF YOU'RE LOW ON BOARDS CORNER THE GREENS ONE AND YOU CAN ADD ONE BOARD BACK ON BUT YOU CAN ONLY DO THIS TWICE. Corner a Green 2 can give you 2 new boards but this move can only be used once.
ONE AND TWO CAN ALSO REMOVE SNIZZLE AND WHIP POINTS FROM YOU but under the same conditions as above.

Step 1: Stack your boards "I've just stacked my coloured space boards."
Step 2: Choose from the 2
'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'
or 'Corner the greens'

EXAMPLE OF A GAME:
person 1: I've just stacked my coloured space boards
person 2: I've just stacked my coloured space boards
person 1: (Each person has a STACK of 10 boards. person 1 has now got to choose between
''Corner the greens'' (more on this below) which (if crossing out 3-4 circles takes away one board from your stack 9/10 or 'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol which adds a point to your opponents snizzle and whip counter.
Basically the loser is the first person to lose every board in their stack.
person 1 says:
Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol
Person 2 then adds a point on the (example: 1/10) on the snizzle and whip counter but dosent have to get rid of a board unlike the powerful Corner the Greens.
A written down game counter should begin like this
10/10 boards in stack
0/10 snizzle and whip points against you
You add snizzle points and you take away boards.
Person 2: Corner the Greens
Now person 2 has to choose whether to cross 1-2 circles out (1 adds one board to his stack but can only be used twice, greens 2 adds 2 new boards but can only be used once. or crossing 3-4 circles out meaning person 1 has to remove one board from his 10. Person 1 takes away a board from his stack.

At this point person 1 has 9/10 boards in his stack and person 2 has 10/10. But due to snizzle and whip person 2 has one point taken away from the counter meaning both are as close to the end as eachother.
At this point:
person 1
9/10 boards in stack (Took a way a board when person 2 did the 'Corner the Greens 4' move)
0/10 snizzle and whip points against you

person 2
10/10 boards in stack
1/10 snizzle and whip points against you
(Added a point when person 1 did the 'snizzle and whip alcohol' move)


EXAMPLE OF A RESULT WHILST PLAYING:

'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'
---------
8/10 boards in stack
3/10 snizzle and whip points against me (Added 1)

I corner the greens 3

you:

7/10 boards in stack (ive just taken one away)
2/10 snizzle and whip points against you
----------
i corner the greens 4
---------
7/10 boards in stack (we're even now :O )
3/10 snizzle and whip points against me

I 'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'


you: (Your results)
7/10 boards in stack
3/10 snizzle and whip points against you (added yours)
--------
'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.'
--------
7/10 boards in stack
4/10 snizzle and whip points against me (added 1)

I corner the greens 4

you: (Your results)
6/10 boards in stack (got rid of one)
3/10 snizzle and whip points against you

IF YOU'RE LOW ON BOARDS CORNER THE GREENS ONE AND YOU CAN ADD ONE BOARD BACK ON BUT YOU CAN ONLY DO THIS TWICE
Corner a Green 2 can give you 2 new boards but this move can only be used once.
ONE AND TWO CAN ALSO REMOVE SNIZZLE AND WHIP POINTS FROM YOU but under the same conditions as above.
Corner the Greens
1 = add one board (can only be done twice)
2 = adds two new boards (can only be done once)
3 - 4 = take their board away

+ and -

- boards: 6
/10 boards in stack
+ points: 3/10 snizzle and whip points against you

The START:


Nathan:
10/10 boards in stack
0/10 snizzle and whip points

Mrs. Xray
10/10 boards in
0/10 snizzle and whip points


PS:
If you get bored of saying
'Break into a bottle of lemon snizzle and whip alcohol.' why dont you try out making things up, its inventive and fun.

Another example of a game:

nathan: i corner the green 2 for boards
--
Nathan:
4/10 boards in stack
2/10 snizzle and whip points

X
8/10 boards in stack
9/10 snizzle and whip points
--
X: i corner the green 4
--
Nathan: i corner the green 3
--
Nathan:
3/10 boards in stack
2/10 snizzle and whip points

X
7/10 boards in stack
9/10 snizzle and whip points

Translation:
Ok, so the aim of the game is to either
get rid of your opponets boards
or shoot them down by adding up their snizzle and whip points.
its that easy
