Kogworks

 

I got this nice boardgame:- “KogWorks”. Its about forming chain of rotating wheels, and whoever forms the desired chain first wins… You can also block opponent’s rotations. Its interesting to see the number of possibilities in the game! See their webpage
I was wondering, in most of the games that we have, there is a competition between two people. The winner has to be Above someone to win. This aspect gets inculcated in people and they seem to be competing almost everywhere -even in a line for Idly Wada in a restaurant! 
Why not to have some games which involve more of a partnership. Where winning simply means achieving something together. Where a Team Effort is needed, and competition is with oneself, rather than others. Where the interdependence is realised. Such games are the need of time. 
In Japan, the country famous for teamwork, this aspect is inculcated right from Childhood. Their, the toys are heavy, so two three children have to together lift it!
Bawa has a nice collection of Boardgames, and here is the article he wrote about it.
