For number lovers, the Start 11! Board game from Ravensburger is an exciting game of chance and strategy. Lucky number 11 starts the game, and ...the youngest player gets the first go. From there, players build a network of tiles, sequencing tile placement based on the numbers previous players have set down. The first player to place their last tile wins!
A Strategy Game for the Whole Family
A game of numbers, Start 11! is a great game night board game that can be played at a relaxed pace or in exciting speed rounds as players become familiar with the ins and outs of the board. Suitable for ages eight and up, this is a great game to play with children who are just becoming more advanced with numbers, as well as a stimulating game for adults who like a challenge. Luck of the draw combined with strategy makes this an intellectual game that still leaves some outcomes up to chance.
Versatile Play Options
Thanks to the many possibilities, you can bring this game to a babysitting job to make playtime more educational as easily as you can play it with roommates or older members of the family. Plus, a variation of the game (described on the last page of the rule booklet) has players incorporate special symbol tiles in the bag before players draw tiles. This option gives players a fun new alternative to try once they've mastered the original version, keeping play fresh and challenging. Couples will love that this game can be played with just two players. And kids will love that the youngest player gets to go first.
Strategy Game for Number Lovers
This building-block game has players create a grid of numbers and, with the alternative game variation, shapes. Depending on the number of players, players take either 15 or 20 tiles and place up to 3 on the board with each turn. The first player with a lucky number 11 tile starts the game--and the first try goes to the youngest player. Number 11 tiles can always be placed on the board. Other tiles must always be placed next to a tile that is already on display on the part of the game board with the corresponding number and one of four colors, represented by the four colored shape cards placed on either end of each row. Gray cards are wild and can be placed in any of the rows. Game rules allow players to place tiles in a joining area and in bridge fields. This is where strategy comes in, as players must keep a close eye on the game board to seize these opportunities during their turn. The game ends when a player places his or her last tile. The remaining players then subtract points for each tile left in their tile holders according to the number value on the tile, so second, third, and fourth place can be determined.

During the Padawan stage of their Jedi training, young Jedi are sent off to build their lightsabers. The construction of a lightsaber can take a while to complete. One must find a crystal and ensure that the lightsaber is ready for battle. There are different types of crystals including Ilum, which are the most common, and synthetic, which are typically used by darksiders. <P> <P><b>"Lightsabers" on Earth</b> <br>A laser is a powerful ray of light that moves in one direction. It is created when a surge of electricity causes a crystal to produce light. The light from the crystal bounces between two mirrors and then goes through a small hole in one of the mirrors to produce the laser beam. A laser can come in many colors, just like a lightsaber. Plasma is the fourth state of matter. The other states of matter are solid, liquid and gas. Plasma is made when a gas reaches a very high temperature or when electricity moves through the gas. Plasma is similar to energy forming in the lightsaber blade. <P> <P><b>Electric Power</b> <br>The crystals in a lightsaber focus the power cell?s energy charge into a blade of pure power. On Earth, electric power like the lightsaber?s power cell is part of our everyday lives. Without it, many of the things we count on would not be possible. Electricity: A complete circuit is needed for an electric current to flow. There are three parts needed to complete the circuit ? a conductor, a source to drive the power, and the object that needs to be powered. An example of this is a light bulb. When a light is turned on, the electricity passes through a filament in the bulb and when it gets hot it glows white. With the flick of a switch electricity can be turned on and off. Batteries: There are many things that need an electric current to in order to work. A battery is a great source of electricity. Most batteries stop working after a long period of use, but some are rechargeable, like those in electric cars.<P> <b>What's In The Box?</b> <br>Lightsaber hilt, lightsaber blade, battery pack, electronics pack, remote control, wall mount, mounting hardware, and fun and informative learning guide with instructions. <br clear="all"> <table cellpadding="30" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center"> <tr> <td align="center"> <img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/toys/detail-page/2011/B00339QX6A-3.jpg" alt="8 colors" width="560",height="250"><br><br><font size="1"><b><em>8 different color effects plus auto-spectrum mode!</b></em></font> </td></tr> </table> <br clear="all"> Read More
