Kingdom Builder combines special powers, from the location tiles, with some puzzlyness (but not too much) in determining where to put your buildings for maximum value. I also like that each game is different based on which boards and Kingdom Builder cards are used.

Tuesday


First up was Dominionwith Base and Intrigue. Cards were Cellar, Council Room, Remodel, Witch, Baron, Courtyard, Great Hall, Mining Town, Saboteur, Scout.

I started with a 5/2 split and bought a Baron, for some odd reason. Other card was a Cellar. I thought I started a little late, but once I had an economy going I bought a couple of Witches. Naturally, they collided at the bottom of my deck, but I had a Mining Town so I was able to play both. At this point I thought I was fairly far behind, but I was able to give both of my opponents all of the curses. Except for a few lucky turns where I could buy provinces, most of my points came from Great Halls and Duchies.

When final scoring happened I won with 45 points, while second place, with a lot more provinces, scored 42 points total.



I got to make up for having missed playing Millennium Blades last week. I tried to throw as many of the flipping cards in the game as I could. Card sets played were Anvilicious Arrangements, Black Flags Black Waters, Samurai Mowdown, Sunset Striders, Super Plumber Bros, Cards From the Crypt, Legend of Tanananah, Mouse Card, Underlords of Metropolitian, Galactic Caboose, Hell to Pay, and Vex. Promos were three of the backer sets, and prize support was another backer set and Princess Blade.

For all of the tournaments I was trying to figure out how to get flip decks to work, and I've come to the conclusion that they really don't. In a three-player game there aren't enough ways to flip cards to really hurt score decks if you're the only one trying to flip other people's cards, especially as everyone starts with deck protectors and there are plenty of alternative defense cards in the core set. Oh, and apparently the backer sets provided even more ways to defend other cards.

The second tournament I tried to play using the Cards from the Crypt deckbox, but I kept forgetting to use its Foreboding effect to net points. I also didn't use my Burnizard correctly either. In the third tournament I was able to use the Vex cards to better effect, but I still placed third for the tournament and the game.



Third game we played was The King Is Dead. I kind of pulled a Skippy and was the first person to play all their cards, banking on red with five and yellow with four. The last opponent with cards tried to make himself win by playing one of each color, but the province's scoring order wound up having blue and yellow tie for total provinces. This meant that I won the game, which was nice, but it felt weird to win a game when I didn't do anything for the second half.



Nope.


Sunday


First game of the day was Roll for the Galaxy. I started with the tech that had allowed you to place developments and planets on the top of the stack and I think a blue world that provided a red die. Early on I found a development that would allow me to reassign if I had the most novelty planets and a 6+ development that scored based on novelty goods, but after finishing a second, I didn't find any more novelty worlds. Mostly I kept finding rare goods planets. I finished the game before my opponent could get a real trade engine going, but I ended up losing 42-41.



Second game was Kingdom Builder. This game was Watchtower, Harbor, Oracle, Barn competing for Knights, Lords, and Hermits.
I started by picking up the Harbor and stretched into a Watchtower. The two let me keep my settlements sort of separated, but I wasn't able to get onto all four sectors very well. In the end I lost by about six points.



We finished the afternoon with a couple of rounds of Battledexx. Since I'm playing with the base set, I kind of ended up on the wrong end of a Phoenix revival in the first game. In the second game I thought I was doing really well with a zombie attack, but my opponent also played a zombie attack, so I didn't gain any grounds there. He also drew the card with Phoenix again and played it near the end, so I lost that game as well.

Thursday

Our normal role-playing night was cancelled as our DM was sick. Instead, two of us got together for a night of gaming.

7 Wonders: Duel x2

My friend hadn't got this played yet, so I told him to bring it over and we'd break it in. He won both games, the first on an auto-science victory and the 2nd on points. I like it better than 7 Wonders, but still not something I'll be picking up. I'm fine with an occasional play when it's just the two of us on a game night.

Ingenious x2

I taught him this Reiner Knizia abstract. We split two close games, both games were won by a single point. He's going to pick it up and I let him know to be careful on the version (I have the nice components).

Kingdom Builder x3

We ended the night with three games of Kingdom Builder which I swept. The first two games were routs, but the last game was decided by a single point when I had 3 castles to 2 castles.

Friday

Logger - Completed a game of this on BGA. It's an interesting abstract with some clever blocking and positioning moves. I'll probably play it occasionally, but I didn't find it quite compelling enough that I expect to play it regularly.

Saturday

Nile - Finished up a 2p game on BGA. Luck ran heavily in my favor this game and I won handily. After 8 games, I think luck plays too big a role in this game and I don't expect I'll be playing it much more.

Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar

Broke out my copy for my learning game following the playbook for the first several turns and then playing all sides to become more familiar with the options and interactions. As is true for most COIN games, knowing how to make the moves vs. understanding how to win are two separate and disconnected steps in the learning process. It'll be interesting to learn how to manage the loose partnerships. The Averni win condition definitely has them picking fights with Rome while the other two tribes have subtler objectives. The Aedui ended up winning my learning game as I had Rome too focused on the Averni and let him slip up behind.

Sunday

Times Square

I'm always looking for short but interesting games that I can play with my wife. She enjoys Jaipur and Battle Line so I was looking for games with similar playtimes and challenge and came across this interesting looking game. I taught it last night, it shows promise to be something we could play regularly.

Just recieved this Monday via a math trade and immediately played a two player game... Very impressed and surprised as I normally don't care for lighter fare but this hits a sweet spot. Immediately went out and got Nomads exspansion and played a three player game with my 15 yr old daughter also playing.

This is definitely a keeper.

3 AI & you solo variant.

It's a simple and fast rule set that lets you get on w/ playing the game while offering up a reasonable challenge. I dropped: Farmers, Fishermen, & Miners. Felt good about those KB cards. Barn, Harbor, Paddick, & Tavern spawned onto the board.

I felt confident I could deny Huey, Dewey, & Louie farmer points and it worked but they made a surprising push into my lead w/ miners & fisherman. The board layout allowed Dewey & Louie to score well on terrain nestled in between rivers and mountains. Fortunately I snagged a paddock & tavern early and that helped me spread out and manouevre.

Won 57-48.

Personal Ranking:
16 of 37

BGG Comments: Almost impossible to rate, given how variable one game can be from the next, but all in all this is a nice abstract game that usually is about making the best of the hand you've been dealt. Of course, you are only dealt one card, so making the best of it entails planning ahead so that any card that you receive will provide you with as many options as possible. The rules system is elegant enough that changing virtually all of them from game to game doesn't create a state of paralysis, which is something of a design achievement in itself.

My Rating: 6.8

Link to Video Review: https://boardgamegeek.com/video/99498/kingdom-builder/jeremy...

Should it have won?: Kingdom Builder is actually one of the best titles among an uncommonly weak group of mentioned titles. I'd consider Targi, Rapa Nui, and Indigo to be roughly on par with that game. The only mentioned title that I think stands head and shoulders above it is Vlaada Chvátil's absurdly hectic drawing game Pictomania.
