One Up (Timberdoodle Review)

My kids and grandkids tried out a couple of new games from Timberdoodle this week, including a seriously fun strategy game called One Up.

The game can be played by two, three, or four players. The object is simple: Line up four of your own colored playing pieces in a row, vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, or place one in each of the four starting corners.

What makes the game challenging is the fact that on each successive round, the number of moves every player is allowed during their turn increases by one.

So, whereas in the beginning, you need only think one move ahead, by the end of the game, you must anticipate a wide range of moves that may occur before play passes back to you.

Also, all four colors remain on the board, even when fewer than four people are playing. That leaves very few empty spaces pieces can move to.

Do you have family members who would enjoy playing One Up? You can get a game of your own through our favorite strategy game supplier, Timberdoodle.

And while you’re on the Timberdoodle website, I’d encourage you to look around. We love everything we’ve ever ordered from this small family-owned company!
