Interesting idea


The asymmetric design, that is.

I'm just not sure what the purpose of it in play is. I played Candy Land and Hi Ho Cherry-o when they were little and never though "if only these stupid games had a more complex and strategic rule set for adults so I could enjoy myself too". The enjoyment came from playing with and teaching the kids. As my kids got older I taught them more complex games, but we always played with the same rule set, which I think is important for their learning and development. (My cousin flat out never let his son win at chess until he was able to beat him in a fair game. Harsh, maybe a little extreme, but my nephew is a good player now.)

I guess if you had a mentally disabled person in your life that's not capable of improving their game play you could have a fun time playing a game that's fun for both of you.
