Approaching Midnight: The Ultimate Challenge

Many clocks

If you have mastered Approaching Midnight then go for the ultimate challenge and think about the following ideas:

  • What would happen if players got to pick which steps they use from a pool, with that step then being removed from the pool?
  • What if you play a sequence of games with different start times (pre-declared) with the loser of each round getting to pick who goes first in the next round?
  • What if you add a random number to the step that you choose?

Do these make good games? How do you define a good game?
