Subject: Game name and rules

I saw a game in the back of one of my woodworking magazines it consisted of a wood board with a set of depressions (to hold the game pieces that are spheres of wood) set up in a 4x4 matrix. Each player got 15 spheres to pile up into a pyramid. Do you know the name of this game and the rules? I have built myself one but there must be something I am missing because the person that goes second is always the winner.

Thanks for your help

Best regards,

Subject: "Rage" question help please

I saw your email address at the bottom of some "Rage" directions and hoped you could help with a dilemma.

In the 12 years that we have been playing Rage we have never had this happen until last night's game. The first card led was a Wild Rage Card named " Red Zero", in an effort to not take the trick. The next player has only one red and must follow suit but the card is a "Red Zero". This person also does not want to take the trick The last person to play has no red and throws off suit. Who takes the trick? The Wild Zero or the Real Zero? Or is it the first card laid?

Any help would be appreciated,
Wendy Booth
