SABG, which started out as a "Hey, we should do a meetup, maybe we'll be able to add a 5th person to our games" has turned into "Do we have enough space for these 20-odd people!" So you should drop by too.

As always, add games I missed.

This was starting up as I came in, but I went out to grab some Pad Thai.

Played a two player game with Rod. We actually ended it before the Mark IIIs come out, which is probably my mistake, since I lost.

I finally got dragged into this, which has been described (repeatedly and, in this case, accurately) as "The Mare Nostrum trading sub system as it's own game."

Not bad at all. Of course, now I feel like I should bring old Horse Nose back for another few games. I believe there were at least two games of this played.

Played a five-person game of Eclipse. Ben stomped all over Chris on the 2nd (?) turn, and I ran smack dab into an Alien Buzzsaw. (I should have retreated my last fighter once the cruiser got smashed, but I decided to gamble). Nothing terribly bad happened to Justin or Ryan early, but on the last turn their fleets were mildly obsolete, with all the carnage that entails. Ben's early two cruisers (in addition to his starting Cruiser as the Hegemony) took out enough to build a comfortable lead, and then he saved his mineral pennies and built four monoliths, which was the margin of victory.

Played with the Pelaton variant that got incorporated into the sequel to this... It added a lot to the strategy without adding too much complication. The pelaton tried to chase down the breakaway, but in the end Scott's careful energy management let his sprinter slingshot off his riders for the first place finish. Very fun, very tense - bad die rolls can still screw up your carefully laid plans when you're attempting the risks though!

Along with
Peloponnes Expansion and
Peloponnes: Hellas Expansion and
Peloponnes: Athens-Mini Expansion and
Peloponnes: Goat Expansion

Did I mention 3 of the players were being introduced to the game? I asked Rob if he had the "forces new players to play with expansions" microbadge - turns out there's not one, but there should be.

I love this game. The only expansion that feels a little week is the sea tiles - everything else is really nice. The new last round tiles are CRAZY.

The game is great to begin with, but add in the deluxe version pieces and it's a masterpiece of back-stabbery and friend screwage. Naturally, the one player who had never played won.
