On Quiddler

by F.

The folks at Set Enterprises, Inc., have another great game (besides Set) called Quiddler. My wife and I have been playing it for a couple weeks and it’s really fun, even for those like me with a short attention span (Chess? Are you kidding?). The game won a Mensa MindGames award in 1999, which is a good sign. While Mensa is certainly open to well-deserved ridicule, their choice in games is, from my experience, excellent. The only thing wrong with Quiddler is the name, which sort of sounds like a euphemism for having an accident in your pants (“Mommy! I quiddled!”)
