I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

Dust Level 1 Year 9 Months

We used to play Pompeii a lot locally and I still really like it, even though my game log shows my pieces are increasingly the first targets to go in the volcano... laugh. So I was surprised to see it hadn't been played in so long. Probably a result of preferring more straight forward to explain games for first time players in this weight class/ time length. You never know who is going to grasp the "set up" phase and maximize their position and who is going to get bored placing their pieces and check out. It was worth noting how many newer members from the group gathered around to watch us chuck pieces into the volcano with gleeful cackles... so I won't let Pompeii get so dusty again for a while.

This is a super random game. In a nutshell, you place your people (represented by wooden octagon pieces) in buildings on the game board through cards. Occasionally an Omen card will pop-up and you get to pick a player's person to put in the volcano (I call this the human sacrifice card). When the volcano erupts (this will happen after the board has been populated with a lot of people), the cards are not used anymore. Instead, you will draw tiles from a bag that indicate where the lava flows through the city. Once you place a tile, you get to move 2 of your people on the board. Your goal is to move your people to one of the various gate (or exits) of the city. Whoever has the most people out of the city at the end of the game wins. The winning score in the 4-player game I played was 5. Lesson learned: Volcanoes are very dangerous.

It's light and is great for kids...one actually played with us and she talked more smack than ever!

I'm going to go "old school".

I find this one to be very enjoyable with 2. In fact, I think it is more strategic with 2. With 4, it tends to be more tactical - with 3 players acting before you go again, a LOT can happen, whereas with only 2, you know only 1 player is going to place a lava tile and move people out (in phase 2).

As such, it's chaotic fun with 4 - but with 2 it has much more strategic depth.

After a disappointing game and a guilty heart, I needed something happier. What could be better than throwing people into a volcano?

Adam 3 found me in the Library, and we brought this downstairs. Marge was not in a game, so we snagged her & had a simply marvelous time destroying a city.

I like this game so much.

The game that got me hardcore into it - understanding the breadth of the awesome awaiting me and eager to explore more so that I could find all the awesome things was probably Downfall of Pompeii. I play a lot of much more in depth things on a regular basis now, but I will still always welcome this to the table and consider it to be the best gateway game hands down. Besides getting me into gaming, this game has been successfully used to addict many friends of mine as well. Throwing people into volcanoes! Just so much freakin fun! Also, pretty cool that it has a light euro feel which is a great introduction as well. cool The coolness.

No. 7
(last year: 6)

Gateway game number two – and the only thing holding it back from more plays is the fact it's limited to four players (I have seen variants for 5 and even 6 - I will try them before next year's list!). The switch in game style half way is genius and works brilliantly, moving from placement to mayhem and murder on one fun little step. (Plays: 25)
