Anyone remember the game Ploy?

Here’s the boardgamegeek entry on it.

If you’ve played it, what’s your favorite opening?

My wife is an “ebayer” and picked up mint copys of Ploy, Foil and Acquire. We’ve played Acquire but haven’t gotten to the others.

I’m an Avalon Hill geek from my teen years, but this shit takes the cake.

Ploy is technically a Chess variant. My younger brother and I used to play it a lot and we both had our favorite openings which we followed just because we liked them. Since we weren’t any kind of Chess theoriticians, the openings had nothing to do with efficiency or strategy. We just liked them.
