Game of the Month
April 2005
This month 'Tower of Babel' did not win our 'Game of the Month' award undisputed; didn't we build houses and auctioned for majorities in many a game so far? But 'Tower of Babel' undoubtedly provides a felicitous combination of well-known game elements to form a new coherent entity. The bidding principles create new situations, new considerations and new solutions, when both the acceptance and the refusal of an offer has sufficient potential for both joy and harm on both sides of the deal. A neat idea, whose effects will take a while to fathom out.
