Happy New Year, Geeks!

I'm curious. What game basically fired/pink slipped another game for you?

I.E. You enjoyed Candyland and played it a lot but when you got Chutes and Ladders, CL was tossed out the door.

How could this happen? Well, the above example isn't that great but maybe you learned a new game that was similar in mechanics but better than the game you were playing. So, you tossed the older one out!

I'm going to list the game that did the firing and mention which game was fired in the body of the text.

I'm sorry Chemo and Nacho... I've tried both games and as animal race games where you have to score points betting for the round/race winners, I think (IMHO) Camel Up has FIRED Banjooli Xeet.

Both games have dice, but Camel Up system works in a more elegant way at my point of view. The interaction is also in both games, but less luck envolved with camels than with ostriches. The art in both games is great!

Maybe Banjooli Xeet is a kind of kids friendly Camel Up?

Fired: Dominoes

Dominoes hasn't seen much action at my table since Carc showed up. Carcassonne excels at the Dominoes mechanic of placing a randomly-picked tile in the most advantageous position for the player, while adding theme, depth, an additional dimension of decision-making, and the most recognizable wooden bit of the 21st century. I'm sure there's work for Dominoes at a retirement home somewhere.

Carcassonne

Carc is both the game that got me started playing board games as a hobby and one of the only games my wife and I both enjoy. To the latter point, though, she was starting to sour on it because she hates field scoring. Carc: The Discovery is the only version of the game that does away with that aspect entirely. I do like field scoring, but wasn't crazy about monasteries, and The Discovery also does away with those, so I decided to take a risk giving it a shot. I was afraid that only one of us would like it, and we might lose Carc too as common gaming ground - but we were close to that anyway. (We'd also both played H&G and both liked it less than original Carc.)

It turns out we both prefer The Discovery. It manages to be more tactical (which she likes) but also less random (which I like), and plays faster once you have the scoring rules down. The only major drawback I've encountered so far is that it doesn't support 6, but that's much less of an issue now than it was when my "collection" was just 2 or 3 games. (It also doesn't have the multitude of expansions available, but that's a blessing in disguise in some ways.)

The Plague fFired both


The tower is a humdrum mechanic that works only in straight, obvious lines.

The dragon is a beastie that will always move in the most obvious way, which is basically not interesting.

The plague is more unyielding to sudden bursty movement, and moves at a completely different, steady pace.

... fired Agricola.


"Sacrilege!", they cried... but hear me out.

Agricola has stymied several of our less zealous gamers. Our newbs / casual gamers really can't get behind playing a game that they ALWAYS get smoked at. It is too strategy heavy, too dependent on an understanding of Eurogaming principles, and too easy to get screwed over by a Eurogaming shark for their tastes.

However, in Castle Dice, the random elements of the cards and dice add a fun factor for the Monotony / Careers / Life crowd. This means it is going to get to the table more often for my group.

The light-hearted theming of this game also resonates better with most of my friends. I get my worker placement, castle / town building fix while my friends still have fun.

That being said, I LOVE Agricola and play it whenever I have the opportunity. However, this only happens to come in the presence of 2 other friends that live in another state.

Let the flogging begin... soblue

Vegas Showdown auctions are not bad, but the way the Master Builder set prices for the round, and get to choose last is a much more compelling experience.

Also, CoMKL rooms are more varied thematically and mechanically than the abstract ones from VS.

Both games scratch the same itch to me, but CoMKL is just much better IMHO.

Fired: Itself.


We were already playing around with different board setups in 3-4 player games, thanks to the 5-6 player extension. After getting Seafarers, we were enthralled by the addition of water, boats, and a general "completing" of the intent of Settlers.

However, it soon took it's toll: Analysis Paralysis issues and extended victory requirements made a decent 45 minute game turn into a boring, often one-sided 90 minute snoozefest. The scenarios were too open-ended, and my best friend claims that Seafarers "ruined" Catan for him. I tend to agree, and would have preferred a more balanced, standardized game.

We have yet to try Catan: Cities & Knights, which I would look forward to if we ever end up purchasing it. But for now, I do not recommend Seafarers over the basic 19-hex game.

Similarities:
- setting routes while trying to block your opponent.
- collecting gems



Cavum is much heavier of the two with some additional fantastic nuances.
- Ability to block other from using your routes (through placement of stations).
- Dynamite! Blowing up sections at the end of the round.
- Additional set collection mechanics to score bonus points.
- Gem market.

At $25, I can't understand why this game is not getting more attention. It is a fantastic gorgeous brain-burner!

To be fair, the king was hired first. But we'd heard Pillars was good, and gave it a shot part-time. So, you still gather different types of resource cubes to help build a large structure, only without the wonderful mechanics of building things that determine what actions are available, or the Provost, or the different favor tracks? Yeah. We thought Pillars might take *some* of Caylus's workload, but sadly it just lacks the skills.
