#89: Code 777

Robert Abbott and Alex Randolph share the credit for coming up with #89 - a great combination of Indian Poker with a deduction game. In Code 777, you have three tiles in front of you, but everyone can see them but you. Ask questions of the other players to determine which tiles you hold.

Ben Baldanza: "Beautiful deduction game."

Mark Jackson: "I was blown away by how much I enjoyed this very think-y game... I'd avoided it for years - as it turns out, without cause."

Great, but is this a game? I don't think so. It's a puzzle, or an activity, but given that you just draw the questions to ask at random from a deck of cards, it's not much of a game.

One solution i have seen used to correct the problem Chris mentions, is to have all the wuestion cards face up, and players begin the game with three, then ask a question from their hand, and after hearing the answer, draw to replace that card.

This adds another deduction element, and a bluffing element, as others can see what you plan to ask next (or what you want them to think you plan to ask next).
