I love board games and when I was youngerone of my gran's friends had a great one called Sorry. I got the hang of it quickly but could only play it when I went to my gran's friends while staying at my grans who lives 60 miles away. A few years later my gran found the same board game in a shop and bought it for herself. Once again I had to reteach my grandparents how to play it and prove that the moves were real and I wasn't making things up.
One day while out shopping with my partner, known on this site as Padfoot, we decided we needed a board game. He wanted Monolpy which is the undisputed king of all board games but I disagreed with the idea as it takes ages to play and I always seem to lose. Sore loser I know, but only when it comes to monolpy, I'm usually quite lucky at board games.
Then I found Sorry. Soon we had it paid for and was on the way home. Now to tell you whats so special about this game. Its game play is close to that of Ludo where you have to throw a 6 on a dice before one of your four pieces can leave the start base. Then basically its homeward bound round the board using a dice to determine how many spaces your pieces can move.
Sounds simple except for the fact that Sorry doesn't use a dice like Ludo. Instead this game uses cards with numbers on which lie face down on the board. On your turn your pick up a card and read the number and instructions on it. Numbers are between 1 and 12 with a card named Sorry.
The tricky bit is that not all cards make you go forward, number 4 makes your piece go back 4 places. Number 7 can be split 3 and 4, and 10 can be 10 forward or 1 back. 11 can be 11 forward or swap places with any other player.
Number 6 isn't used in the game, not sure why but to get out of the Start base you need either a 1 or 2 or a Sorry card which lets your piece out but sends another player back. You then start where the sent back player's piece was.
her interesting game which can last some time if 4 players play. We've had loads of fun with friends begging not to be sent back for the 10th time! I would defiantly recommend to anyone.
