If I had a top quality P&P copy of Dune I would have it in place here, as Rex has the misfortune of an ugly inelegant board design and layout, and a thematic disconnect between races and abilities.

But I don't, and Rex is fantastic in every other way.

The rules are simple, the experience cagey and bloody and deceitful, but it's also brilliantly different for every player, and structured enough to drive on to its conclusion without wearing the players out.

So, the original rules stated that you could only collect two influence per turn regardless of how many troops are controlling the space. So our first game no one chased influence, with the result that everyone but Lacax and Hacan were poor and getting poorer, the auction phase sucked the whole 2nd half and I got ready to trade away the most unbalanced game I'd ever seen. Oh, what's this? An errata sheet in the box saying collection was 2 influence/troop? D'oh!

One (correct) play later, one of my all-time favorite games.

Number 17 (8.5, Excellent. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.)

What I said then (down from number 11 last year): This game shines when playing with 6. I love the asymmetry. So much banter and wheeling and dealing. The Traitor cards and end of game win conditions really are remarkable. Plenty of paranoia when team mates seem to choose and perform suboptimal moves. You think to yourself, I bet they have such and such a traitor card then and are looking to steal the win from me after all this hard work, it is time to break this alliance!

For all those Dune fans who can't get past the theme you really are missing out. I've played both and this is the better game mechanically. I never got into Dune so either theme would of worked for me. It is not FFG's fault. Blame the family trust that wanted a ridiculous sum for its licence. Greed in your case is definitely not good!



Rating change: Down from a 9 to 8.5

What I say now: One gripe I have against this game is that you need 6 players for it to shine. Forget it at other player counts. It falls off so much. Brilliant brilliant design considering it was made in the 70s!

The Autumn Gamer is a pirate, Blustering in from sea, With a rollocking song, he sweeps along, Swaggering boisterously. The Autumn Gamer is a raider, Pillaging just for fun. He'll knock you 'round and upside down, And laugh when he's conquered and won.

Nr. 63:

I don't mind the re-theme, just love that this classic is back and pretty. Everything in this game is a setup for great memories. The peace-turtles can win by predicting the winner and the round, the Barony has a high chance for a crippling betrayal of opponent generals, the laxar-allies empty the market of cards. Especially you giving your abilities to your allies and the fact that you can only form and break binding allies with a certain card draw is ingenious.

Link to GeekList item - Item for Geeklist "New to you June 2014 => Best new boardgame"


New game of the month June 2014 - Rex: Final Days of an Empire

Initial plays - 1
Plays since - 1
Initial rating - 8
Current rating - 8
Has it stood the test of time? - No, but there's a reason

I really liked this game. And it is in my collection. So where's the problem you'll ask. Unfortunately my gaming group is not interested in this game at all. First and only play happened in special conditions, which most likely will not repeat. I enjoyed the only play so much that at one moment without even playing Rex I increased rating up to 9. Now it is back to 8, and game still waits its chance. I don't see myself finding 5 more players to get the full flavor, but I can dream about at least couple more interested in it.


Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport

Initial plays - 2
Plays since - 3
Initial rating - 8
Current rating - 8
Has it stood the test of time? - Yes

This is one good expansion for a very good game. One of the games I suggested my gaming group partners to buy, but would better like to own myself. Thus only 3 plays since. They don't like playing with expansions (usually expansions make setup fiddlier, and rules repeating is inevitable), and I need to borrow whole Lords of Waterdeep set to play it.

Still in shrink wrap! However, something creased a part of the bottom of the box and made a small hole.

Comes from smoke free home.
