One Step:

I had a bunch of toy dinosaurs when I was younger…Most of which went missing over time…I used to play this game, it was fun the first time, but the other times were really boring…I didn’t really care what people thought of me, so I was the only one who could really get into it…It was called “One Step”, which is a much better name than what I called it when I was younger, “One Step Dinosaur-Kill”…

The rules:

  1. Each player takes turns picking dinosaurs out of what I had (a lot)…
  2. Both players arrange their dinosaurs in their base…The bases would have no real purpose other than where we’re setting out dinosaurs up…
  3. Every turn, a player can move one dinosaur one-step in any direction (For some reason, we would always say “one step”, but that wasn’t necessary)…
  4. If your dinosaur is close enough to an opposing dinosaur (one-step distance, which I’m sure was calculated fairly), you could kill…
  5. Flying dinosaurs could fly forward and attack the first opposition it crossed…I don’t think there were limits…I was like 7, and while I realized how broken this was, I didn’t really think about putting a limit on it…
  6. The game was over once every dinosaur on one side was dead…(There was no differentiation between herbivores, omnivores, or carnivores, though big dinosaurs could get away with moving further)…Or when my friend gets sick of it and decides he doesn’t want to play anymore…(u_u)…
  7. Game is perfectly fair and balanced…
  8. If you disagree, you’re a liar…

I think I remember trying to play this like 3 times…I have a huge backyard…There’s a large field of grass, which then changes to dirt, we’d play in a large circle in the dirt (I once thought having a bigger playing field would be more fun, how wrong I was)…

Oh the fun we hadn’t…
