My Son, the Game Designer

Braeden really likes Michael Schacht's Zooloretto & Aquaretto - partially for the game play & partially for the multitude of cool little expansions you can get & use. (Funny - I feel the same way that he does!)

So, when playing Aquaretto earlier this year, he began dreaming up expansions. One of his ideas was good enough that I e-mailed to Michael, who has a website dedicated to all things "oretto".

And Michael posted it! It's near the bottom of the page on the German part of the site:


Touch Pool (Aquaretto)

von Braeden Jackson (7 Jahre).

In English, here is the rules for Braeden's Touch Pool variant:
A tile much like the Petting Zoo... players can put two babies in the touch pool which do not score points at the end of the game. Instead, the first baby gives the player 1 coin and the second baby gives the player 1 co-worker.
I couldn't be prouder!

That's awesome. You should put this on my geeklist for kids' game variants.
