Rodeo Settings For Board Games

While board games can take a number of approaches for their themes and settings, one area that often gets overlooked are professional sports. Many people don’t think of adapting a game which already exists into a board game setting. On top of that, however, professional sporting events which are not as popular as, say, football or baseball tend to get overlooked even more. It is probably safe to venture that most people would never even think of the rodeo circuit as producing some great potential for board games. Yet, rodeo board games can provide some of the strongest thrills one can find in the board game community.One might be confused on how a game based around the riding, roping, or wrestling a steer might translate well into a board game, but it takes much the same approach as a board game about auto racing might. Racing a car around a track is a far different cry from sitting around a table and rolling dice and playing cards, yet both racing and rodeo provide the same type of thrill that can be tapped into well with a board game.Rodeo Time is one of these board games which makes the most out of what the rodeo circuit has to offer. It is a game which is open to all ages, allowing young children the chance to play alongside older grandparents, including everyone in between. The game simulates such events as calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, and even bull riding. A rodeo usually includes all of these events, sometimes even a few more such as full grown steer roping, instead of just trying to rope the calves.This game is played with a combination of dice and cards, giving an element of random luck that helps younger players deal with the challenges which might be presented. Rolling three dice onto the game board will help players when riding the bulls, but they must be careful. If they roll poorly, they will be bucked off and score a zero for that event! Additionally, the cards will help any player score well in the timed events, such as roping, but drawing or playing the wrong card can add some terrible time penalties to the score! Only by playing their luck and being shrewd will a player score the best in all of their categories.Championship Rodeo is another board game which gives players the chance to compete in the professional rodeo market without leaving the comfort of their own homes. This game simulates what it is like for the player to be a part of the rodeo circuit, sending them around the board to compete in different rodeos and do well. If a player performs well enough at all the different rodeos around the circuit, they will not only win prize money and trophies, but will qualify to enter the finals of the World Championship Rodeo. The player will continue on to compete in this rodeo and if they score well enough, they will be named the Rodeo World Champion!Rodeo Opoly is another game of this type related to Rodeos. This game has been published by a firm called Late For The Sky. The game is similar to the well-known Monopoly game. However, the theme here is Rodeos. So, you have to buy rodeo properties, and collect something called ‘scores’. You can trade these scores for gold rings. And the number of gold rings you have determines the amount of rent you can collect for your properties. All in all, a fun game for persons with interest in horses.

Fun Math Card Games – Three Simple Ways to Adapt a Common Card Game Called Rummy!

Rummy, which has a variety of other names, is a common card game for children. Turn it into a fun math card game to add an educational element at the same time. Your child may never know they are doing extra math work at home!Review the rules: Use a standard deck of cards. Deal out seven cards, stack the rest in a pile on table. Turn the top card over. The goal is to get a “rum” of either three of a kind or three cards in numerical sequence. Aces are be counted as a one or one above the King. Take turns picking up a card from the pile or the one facing up. Organize cards in your hand by potential “rums.” Place any “rums” on the table during your turn, discard one card. Once a rum is played other players may add to it, by placing a single card down in front of them that could be added onto someone else’s ( a 4th card of a kind of the next number up or down in sequence. Play continues one until on player used all their cards. Scoring is five points for each number card, ten points for each face cards and fifteen for an ace. Check a card game rule book for more specific details are common variations.Math Variation 1: When they put the “rum” down they must to do something with the numbers. At first it will be adding or counting them. As they get older it might be multiplying. Problems should be stated fully aloud. For a “rum” of three fives the player would say, “Five plus five plus five is fifteen.”Variation 2: Review multiplication families or factors. Add the three cards together and state all the multiplication facts that have that same answer. A J, Q, K is 36, so the student needs to come up with 6×6, 9×4 12×3 and 2×18. A “rum” of three twos adds up to 6, so the facts are only 2×3.Variation 3: Play the game and add points as usual. Spread all their cards on the table and see how many different math family groupings can be created. Give bonus points for each grouping. For this the Jack is 11, Queen 12 and King is 13. A group with a 3, 5, 8 is a group 4, 9, K is a group. They must state the group and all the facts that can be made with them, 9+4=13; 4+9=13; 13-4=9; 13-9=4Taking this common game and changing into a math card game adapts it in a way to make math more fun for your child in a subtle way. Children in one family at different levels could play the same game with different expectations, the younger ones count, the older ones add or multiply. The repetition of facts that happened by playing these games over and over again, facts will help solidify the child’s grasp of these math facts. I can easily say I know that 15×3 is 45 without even thinking is from all the times I added up my points for three aces as a child when playing rummy!

The History of Video Game Consoles – A Blast From the Past

Whenever I start playing a few games on my Xbox 360, I couldn’t help but wonder how it all came to be. My parents always tell me that video games weren’t exactly popular back in the days and that it was considered an idea of the future. With this in mind, I began to recall my early childhood memories when it comes to video games. And since I didn’t have anything good to do today, I decided to do some research about the complete history of video game consoles. To my surprise, I realized that the very first console I had back when I was a kid wasn’t exactly the “first game console”. I had this notion that my old console was the very first produced, so I guess it was indeed worth the time researching about video game consoles.In any case, let’s start our blast from the past as I take you back from the humble beginnings of our beloved video game consoles.The idea of playing games in front of the television was considered absurd and a thing of the future. All except for one Ralph Baer who conceived one absurd idea; the ability to interact with your television, which includes playing games on it. This was in 1951 while building television sets for Loral in Bronx, New York. In 1966, he successfully developed a game called “Chase” where two dots chased each other around the screen. He showed the idea to his new boss, R&D owner Herbert Campman, he was given some funding and his project was taken by the company as an official one. A few years later, Ralph Baer successfully made the “Brown Box”, which is considered as the great grandfather of all video game consolesA few years later, Magnavox decided to invest on video games and made the very first video game console called the Magnavox Oddysey. It was indeed an innovation as it was the first video game that can be connected to a television set. It was also the first when it comes to console peripherals as you can buy a light gun that you can connect to the console when playing shooting games.In 1975, Atari came up with its own game console along with Pong, a game that would remain a popular concept until now. The console doesn’t have any controllers though; in fact, the console looks like a controller itself, so you could probably say that’s the grandfather of all handheld television games. Then, the Atari 2600 came. Released in 1977, it would become so popular that it was the only console asides from Magnavox to survive the first game console crash of 1977. Both companies continued to make games for their respective game consoles until the second game console crash of 1983. Atari and Magnavox suffered from having too many badly developed games, which explains why Nintendo became a very popular gaming brand in this era. It was in this year where the Nintendo Entertainment System was developed and released.In Japan, it was called “Famicom” while in North America, it was either called “NES” or just plain “Nintendo”. This was my very first video game console and as far as I can remember, I played tons of games with this console. Super Mario Brothers, Legend of Zelda, Contra, Megaman, and a bunch of other games filled my cabinet instead of Barbie dolls and other girly stuff. Nintendo’s success continued until Sega rose up to challenge their game console with the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis console. Released in Japan in 1988, the Sega console gained popularity with the titular video game character and Sega mascot Sonic the Hedgehog. In fact, the only reason why I begged my parents to get me a Sega Mega Drive was because I wanted to play Sonic the Hedgehog!Nintendo sensed that Sega was indeed getting popular, so two years after the release of the Sega Mega Drive, Nintendo released the Super Nintendo Enterntainment System or SNES. The SNES was also popular amongst kids at that time. In fact, most of my friends get confused as to what console they’d want to buy for Christmas!Then in 1995, the era of 16 bit and 32 bit games were now overshadowed by the Sony Playstation. The video game console sported better graphics, better hardware and software support, a new set of handy controllers and the Memory Card, a device that lets gamers store their saved games. It was revolutionary indeed, since it no longer uses cartridges, but disc drives instead. Sega and Nintendo both answered with the Sega Saturn and the Nintendo 64, but when it comes to the Fifth generation of video game consoles, the Sony Playstation is the king.Years passed and by 1999, the PC’s were now engineered towards gaming as well. Sega released the Sega Dreamcast in 1999, but was poorly received and finally discontinued in 2001 because they tried implementing a type of disc drive called the GD-Rom. It was a move to prevent software piracy, but instead it led to poor sales. Nintendo Gamecube suffered the same fate when it released the Gamecube; the console only plays 8 mm disc drives and was discontinued in 2007. Sony, on the other hand, experienced a huge success with the Playstation 2 while Microsoft released the Xbox in 2001.And the rest, as they say, is history.
