Game of the Week: Rube
Reuben “Rube” Goldberg was an American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor, remembered today for his cartoons depicting needlessly elaborate contraptions that perform simple tasks. These intricate collections of springs, marbles, pulleys, and countless other components are at once pointless and fascinating, silly and inspiring.
A favorite thing of mine in 2-player gaming is when you have multi-use cards and are facing the tough decision of how to use them most effectively. This somewhat has it, with a 9-card game where you take turns adding a card to the 3x3 grid. The catch? The orientation that the card is played determines who uses the action of the card and who scores the points on the card. That has to be as delightful of a decision as it sounds, with quick gameplay to rival other Button Shy 2-player greats such as Circle the Wagons for passing that small window of time together.
