While you're collaborating with other artists, you still want your art to be appreciated and noticed more than anyone else's.

Building houses and hotels

Building advances your ability to bankrupt your opponents. Many players build all they can afford. However, this strategy results in losses when houses must be torn down to pay rents or other penalties often.

You should build when you form the first complete color group.

You should build when you can do so and still be left with enough cash to pay a "high probability" expense - namely, rents on Railroads or Utilities, Luxury Tax, and the "nasty" unexposed Community Chest or Chance cards. $150 to $200 is all the cash you need to hold onto if there are no other complete color groups against you. $300 to $400 in cash is recommended if there are one or more complete color groups developed against you. …


  1. Cross off your cards correctly

    This seems obvious, but you would be surprised how many people realize after the game they didn't cross off a card.

  2. Eliminate one possibility every turn

    If you can eliminate all false possibilities first, then you have a huge advantage over the other players. …


Geistesblitz Junior is great for players from 4 years old, but can be made more challenging for more experienced players (6 and up).

Usually, Gary the Ghost lives in a castle, just as ghosts are supposed to. But when his cousin Scarecrow Steve wants to go on holiday, Gary agrees to fill in for him while he's away.

So now Gary haunts the countryside, scaring the field mice out of the haystacks and the crows out of the fields. And he's also made some new friends - Freddie the Frog, Charlie the Chicken and Peter the Piglet. …




Our candidate for the ideal opening is the sequence CF, which leaves the board configured as:



This opening has the following strengths:

  • It empties pit F early in the game, allowing Player1 to play a single stone from F into her mancala each time a single stone lands there.

  • It empties pit F at a time when at least two of the stones from F (those landing in J and I) will likely eventually come back around the board to Player1's side. Furthermore, if Player2 makes the defensive G play, all 5 of the stones from G are ultimately likely to wind back up on Player2's side. …

  1. If you have successfully moved a pawn backwards at least two spaces beyond your own START space, you may, on a subsequent turn, move into your own SAFETY ZONE without moving all the way around the board.

  2. Keep the square outside of your start free. Only when you drawn a one or a two, you can move a pawn out of start.

    If that square is occupied, you will need to use it to move the pawn out of the way and that's a waste. …



Act 1

Q: If a Barrel is on a Dock or a boat and the Shark swims through that space, does the Barrel's Motion Sensor get triggered?

A: No. Only Motion Sensors on Barrels that are floating in the water can be triggered.


Q: If Quint launches a Barrel into the Shark's space during a round in which the Shark played their Out of Sight Power Token, does the Shark still get hit with the Barrel?
