Backyard 24/7

Just a picture this time:  As the weather improves, the backyard boardgaming becomes more frequent.  Friday after work it was 24/7: The Game (designer Carey Grayson, publisher Sunriver Games).


  1. Scrabble with numbers and blockades?

    1. Kind of. You only play one tile at a time. You score points if you create a sum of 7 or 24 in any row, column, or diagonal of adjacent tiles. You also get points for three or four of a kind in a row, or for successive runs of three or more tiles, but the sum can never exceed 24. The red glass beads mark unplayable places due to the limit of 24. And as you can see, some places score double.

      I think I gave this game to Kathy for Christmas a couple of years ago. It's been a regular game that we go back to from time to time.
