Bobby's Games

I will be posting monthly recaps of my gaming which I have been doing in GeekLists. I'll also be commenting on games on occasion, though I can tell you that I will be behind the curve because I just don't get to play the new games as soon as some people do.

Through the Desert made it to the table. I taught it to Nico and Ben and thought they made a big mistake by placing their initial riders such that I was mostly alone in the center of the board. I was able to create a huge line of the strawberry group which enclosed a large area. Once that was done, I was working on closing the other side of the line off with the same color, but the game ended and I was one camel away from gaining another 10 points, but I was sure I was still going to win.

I'm a huge fan of playing the game with three players. That number strikes the perfect balance of having a competition for the points while keeping the game moving at a brisk pace.

I call the camel colors strawberry, grape, butter cream, lime, and mint since they are so pastel and look like fruity candies.

And speaking of fruit...

I have enjoyed Finca since I first played it. I am putting together my new bookshelves tonight so I should have most of my board games unpacked and shelved in the next couple of days, so I can be fairly confident in picking this that I will be able to locate it.

The general idea is you collect fruit to take to market. The fruit is collected by moving one of your workers along a rondel. Instead of moving the a worker, you can turn in the fruit at the market and collect VPs. It's simple to explain, but the choices can be tough. It also comes with a bunch of neat fruit pieces which should appeal to any game bit parakeets out there.
