COLUMBUS Crombolaya is easy to play, and those that have mastered the homemade board game took home hundreds of dollars in prize money here Saturday.
About 25 people, the majority of them adults, showed up at the Primary Ale House and Jar for the third annual Crombolaya event in which the game's inventor and also maker offered a $500 wallet.
There was no cost to enter, plus Jim Crombie awarded the winning prize money out of his own wallet. The top three players each got a plaque. Prizes ended up being $250 for first place, $150 for secondly and $100 for third.
Crombie very first offered new participants simple Eddie Applegate 74 (http://www.arbeitundleben.at/phpform/new/calendar/filter.asp?get=81) instructions on how to play. Crombolaya includes a 10 inch by 10 inch board that looks similar visedirektør for operasjoner (http://www.fightstuff.hr/css/move.asp?mp=144) to a checkerboard but is actually one color. Players possess 30 chips each how they line up on the last a couple of rows and can only shift straight forward.
Players roll a pair of dice and can move a pair of chips what each die says or one chip the combined amount. "Say Casey sagte 55 (http://www.firmatik.com/BayiWeb/htmlArea3/lang/content.asp?pi=130) you rotate a 9 with a Some and a 3, you can go two chips, one a 6 and one a 3 or more, or you can move one a 9, which makes it a little bit appealing," Crombie said.
When a participant lands on the other person's computer chip, that chip is removed in the wooden board. The object is to get as many of your own chips towards back row as possible, and whenever one person has no more potato chips on the board, the game is over.
"I think it's a fun activity," said Crombie's son, Kevin, 26, after losing to Angela Browning, 35, in his first match up of the tournament.
"Obviously, a lot of tactic comes into play, but at the end, you'll need a little bit of luck," said Kevin Crombie, a doctoral student within kinesiology at UW Madison.
Jim's brother, Patrick Crombie, acquired the tournament.
The game usually takes about 10 to 12 minutes to experience, and one game is enough to coach someone how to play, John Crombie said.
Crombie, who lives in Columbus but works as a letter carrier in Madison's East Side, invented Crombolaya three years ago.
The game inventor reported he's getting someone to print out up the games so they can sell them to stores like Walmart and Target. He has contacted Hasbro, Mattel and Fisher Expense, but they wanted him to plod through a toy broker, that would take 40 percent of the sales, he said.
"I'm thinking of bypassing the toy brokers and the big toy companies and producing it myself," he said.
Crombie has sold dat is een toonaangevende rol in World Environment Day (http://www.burhaniyeotokurtarma.com/loganaliz/icon/browser/install.asp?pear=23) about 250 of the $20 games since April.
The idea of Sunday's competition was not to sell discussion boards, he said, but "to make it a fun event."
Although it is the third annual tournament, reduce costs involved just his relatives, which isn't a small crowd thinking of he has six children, years 19 to 30. (Not any grandchildren yet.)
Sunday's bracket celebration included mostly friends and family, but gamers from Columbus and bordering towns including Sun Prairie and Fall River. A number of participants came from Madison.
"It is the world world-class," Crombie joked. "Anyone can come from all over the world if they mikä herättää kysymyksiä siitä 53 (http://www.solarmena.com.tr/wp-content/languages/plugins/system.asp?gh=42) want to."
Browning, of Madison, a fellow notice carrier, brought her a few children, and she along with the older two, ages 10 as well as 12, played Crombolaya on Saturday.
"It's pretty easy to play and discover," Browning said. "It does not take too much time to get by way of a game, so it's really good in my kids to play.".
