Welcome to the St. Patrick’s Edition Smart Box Design Newsletter

In our last newsletter, we celebrated our 4 year anniversary with you. Thank you to all who participated. This week, we’d like to introduce you to Super Granny 3, developed by our fantastic partner Sandlot Games. In addition, we’ve created a new contest that could easily send free games your way. There are always great ways to keep entertainment in your life, and we’d like to be your source for it!

Review: Super Granny 3 - Classic Game Play Gets Better with Age!

ImageNowadays, I don’t know if people remember Lode Runner, but those of us who once owned an Apple IIC and used to hold a floppy disk (the 5” kind!) in our hand every now and then likely have fond memories of this platform. Super Granny 3 pays homage to this classic franchise and brings it to a new level with beautiful colors, humor, and a gentle challenge.

The time-tested game play remains, only now you’re collecting kitties instead of gold and trapping bulldogs with boxing gloves instead of stick figures. However, it’s the new additions that really keep the fun at a maximum.

If you purchase the full game, you can really get your money’s worth with nearly 100 levels. As the levels press on, players receive new obstacles and puzzles to overcome, and all of the while Granny provides verbal reactions to her dilemmas that will make you laugh out loud. For PC.

Contest: Win a Palm or Pocket PC Game - Yahtzee vs. Farkle Dice Contest

ImageAll great ideas come from the same wellspring, the human brain, and some are often quite similar. Many of you have compared our game Farkle Dice to Yahtzee. And yet, they certainly aren’t the same game! So what do you as players think about this? Is Yahtzee the original and the best, or does Farkle Dice more or less represent the bettering of the best? We’d like to set 1956 up against 2007.

We’ve opened a forum on this subject, and would like to reward the first posting with a free copy of WordPop, Word Monaco Solitaire, Farkle Dice, Word Watch or Triples. In addition to that, we'll randomly select 2 more postings to receive a free game as well. Contest closes 3/25/07. Winners will be notified by e-mail and / or in the next newsletter. Post your comments at our forum by selecting the link below.

Strategies: Farkle Dice - Learn from your Opponents

ImageRemember that when you’re playing against a computer, you are actually playing a program. While they do get lucky sometimes, they do not cheat. For this reason, you can learn from them. The reason that certain opponents do well is not because they really get that lucky, but because they know when to take risks and when to play conservatively.

If you’re way ahead, it pays to consistently receive points and maintain your lead, so you don’t want to roll if you’ve only got a dice or two left. However, if you’re behind, or somebody is nearly 10,000 points, what have you to lose? Roll again!

It’s mastering these situational choices that will help you peel the “lucky” label off of yourself and reveal the veteran underneath!
