Three to five players old enough to recognize the two words "victor" and "victim" can play this quick card game. The cards depict the letters of those two words in three colors, plus a handful of other cards that can influence the flow of the game. With three cards face-up on the table, each player draws a card on their turn then decides which of their cards to pass along to the next player. Through this simple choice, they're trying to force the other players to spell the word "victim" - eliminating them from the game - or to spell the word "victor" from their own cards, thus winning the game. Simple, fast, and fun, Victor or Victim is a great family game for any place and any time.
This race game comes from the Moki and Hopi people of southwestern North America. There are several variations of the arrangement, including a version for four players. In all cases, each player has but one peg, and must race to the opponent's home space and back again to win. The movement is determined by a toss of casting sticks or coins, and there's a definitive push-your-luck aspect to these coin-tosses. Control of the center space is the real key to the game. Fun and straightforward, a series of games is typical to determine a final winner (best three out of five, and so on).
