The following are the all of the articles that have been tagged as and being related to Confusing Game that can be found here at Musings From Us, for your enjoyment.
Today we are looking at the game Royal Riddles, available from Big Fish Games.
The learning curve on this game is rather steep for a casual game, especially when you are used to other types of games that tend to give you step by step hands on tutorials and help. In this game you are given a grid that you must then either block or keep open depending on the information that is given on the edges of the board. The tutorial that you are sped through tells you to click on certain blocks but does not explicitly tell you why. It is a very confusing game to start out with.
There are help informations in the options of the game that are almost as bad as reading stereo or DVD player instructions, but those I would understand. They are not intuitive at all and once you do figure it out, I had to ask my wife for guidance since she had played those kinds of games before, you realize that it is a mosaic game that plays a lot like Sudoku would be played.
