I really enjoy economic games and have heard several positive reviews of Speculation from people I trust.

However, with many other personal financial responsibilities, the price point for many of these Queen games seems quite dear.

Maybe I've chosen the wrong hobby.

I haven't posted game play recently. November was a thin month and December wasn't only a bit better. I'll just summarize for the month

Five Tribes - I liked the mancala meeple movement mechanic to claim the action and score depending on the type of meeple being removed but that is about it. I can see where people can feel that it can have analysis paralysis. It appears to have an overwhelming number of choice but they but until the end game there are usually several alternatives. I see a lot of people like it, but I'm not enthused.

On my recent play I was quite surprised by the results - I would have placed myself in last place not first. I was conservative with bidding. I didn't know enough of what to do so I sat out the auctions. I ended up with a huge bonus with cards (guess I was fortunate when I grabbed green meeples) and mediocre every where else, and I think the others overbid since they had scored points early.

Speculation - Talk about a game were if you back the wrong horse early - you are out of contention.
In this play a couple players were caught in a liquidity trap, and could only be a spectator for the remainder of the game. It was frustrating for both of them. I would have to downrate the game due to an bad break at the start does not look to be recoverable.

With my wife in attendance some old favorites came out:
Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 3 – The Heart of Africa
Survive: Escape from Atlantis! - A simple game with a very dark heart.
Catan
Jaipur - She really enjoys this set collecting card game.

The gameplay looks simple and short enough, but economics games tend to be a harder sell. Even so, I also have the expansion for this to support 7-8 players. Considering people like other Dirk Henn titles, maybe I need to sell it as "by the guy that made Alhambra".
