I don't own a "V" game. However, I have played Village and it is really good. This is my favourite "V" game for sure!

Final game of the day with the same group. Each player is a family in the village trying to achieve fame and glory (points).

A turn consists of taking a cube from an area and then completing an action in that area. The areas include a market, church, crafting houses and a few others. The actions will generally give you points, cubes, coins (which are wild cubes), or equipment like a horse or plow. One of the actions allows you to add another person to your family which you'll need because eventually you're older family members are going to die. That's not a bad thing most of the time because that person will go into the village chronicle which can earn you points at the end of the game.

Once the village chronicle is full the game end triggers and every other player gets one final turn.

Pete and Shay went crazy in the market while Ian and I were distracted by the other attractions in the village. I think Pete beat Shay in a tie breaker having sold to more people in the market.

THE PIECES FORGOTTEN ON THE FRAME

That may be the one thing that scares me the most about getting a new boardgame: punching all the pieces... except one, and then throwing the cardboard frames away into the recycling bin.

Whenever I punch a new game, I always leave the frames nearby until I'm done. Then I grab each frame individually and I hold it at arm's length while standing in front of a brightly lit window. (I swear to God.)
And I make damn sure there's nothing left on there before I dispose of the little bastard.

Well, despite all my precautions, one piece apparently stayed in the frame when I originally punched my copy of Village. (I eliminated all other possiblities, and as Holmes says, Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.)
I contacted the publisher and they helped me out, but since then I've become utterly paranoid about punching new games.

On Saturday, my wife & I played Village (not the first time) with the Village Inn expansion (first time!).

I still enjoy Village a lot -- the 'worker death' aspect makes the game for me. I particularly like how the tempo of the game changes, where at the beginning I'm trying to keep my family members alive, but toward the end I'm trying to kill them off quickly to claim a spot in the chronicle. The expansion makes the game even better by providing a new resource (beer) and by introducing characters you meet at the Inn who provide player-specific powers or end-game goals. I really enjoy this kind of player asymmetry in games, so I'm sure we'll never play without the expansion again!

My wife won the game on a tiebreaker (51-51), as she'd served more customers at the market than I had (5-3).



On Sunday, my wife & I met up at a park with a lovely local couple, and there they introduced us to Arboretum and A Fistful of Penguins. Arboretum is one of those interesting games where I think you could play it pretty casually, like a filler, or you could play it more seriously and spend a good deal of brain power optimizing your every move. For what seems like a pretty straightforward card game, it was very interesting.

A Fistful of Penguins is a light dice game that still has a good number of decisions to make. Given that every animal scores differently, and some depend on the presence (or non-presence) of other animals in order to be able to score at all, it seems like it would take at least a few games to have a good grasp on which animals are best or worse to chase.

I jumped at the chance to play this at Cangames in mid-May. I was very glad I did. Very interesting game. It took me too long to figure out how to productively die and the value of getting people into the Cathedral. This is now on my to buy list.

Closely following this are Concordia which was a very smooth playing game and Imperial Settlers which is a terrific tableau/civ builder. In both cases we had to rush the endgame due to our venue closing so I'd definitely like to see if my second impressions are as positive as my first impressions .

English second edition that includes bonus customer tiles. The box has some very light shelf wear and the components are in very good condition. I don't remember if the game originally included a box insert. If it did it has been removed.

Sweeteners:

Village Inn
English first edition. The box is not included. All components are in very good condition and are in the base game box.


Guildhall
AEG English/German edition. The box has some very light shelf wear and the components are in very good condition.

I will pay for shipping within the U.S. I will not ship outside of the U.S.

I am going to highjack this geek list slightly and also confess where I was last night. Last night I went to a friend's house to play a couple of games before he goes away for a little over two months.

When I got there, he had this already set up, knowing it was something I wanted to get played. Without any of the expansions, I fared reasonably well for a first-time, finishing second, with his wife winning and him trailing, as he was preparing for his big move. He apparently had played almost exclusively two-player, so that messed up his timing. I also conveniently got in his way a couple of times.

I am a little concerned that it will be too much for my family, but I might be able to figure out how to explain it.
