The fun and fascinating origins games
"Definitely a fun game" 
- Deb Amlen, NY Times
Kris from Idaho says:
We played Orijinz on Christmas Day with players aged 14 to 70 and it was so much fun! I'm hooked! It is all I can do to resist sitting down and playing "Orijinz Solitaire." But then I'd have an unsporting advantage at the next games party, so I'm leaving it alone. I'm suffering here, though. That little blue box is calling me. So many words, so much fun and knowledge...Will I resist? Be strong, girlfriend!
