We headed back inside and grabbed a spot at a table (it was starting to get pretty full by Friday afternoon) and I wandered off to the library to try to find something else new. I'd always wanted to play Downfall of Pompeii, but had never had the chance. I brought this back, took 10 minutes or so to figure out the rules, and away we went. Despite the couple of times that the volcano decided to spontaneously disassemble, the game went really smoothly. I pulled out the win by a single meeple over Liam, who would have won if he'd had one more turn. This was a lot of fun.

Thursday 1

Once my library shift was over, we found Tony & got in a nice game of this. I love this game. The play & win area had sucked up most of the people, so we had lots of room to spread out. We snagged a precious round table & rotated people & games through.

Rank: 7.4


Items owned:
- The Downfall of Pompeii, purchased from Philibertnet.com.

Description: Hand management, populating city, tile laying, grid movement, family game with take that mechanic, about saving people from the Vesuvius in ancient Pompeii.
Weight: Light to medium.
Number of players: 2 to 4. Best with 4.
Designer: Klaus-Jürgen Wrede.
Publisher: Mayfair Games.

Impression: Light, take that game where you first have to populate ancient city of Pompeii with your citizens and then save them from the raging fires of Vesuvius by laying tiles of lava on other player's people. Fun volcano death escaping game for the whole family. Few of the rules are pretty counter-intuitive but easy to grasp after few clear examples. Also, the end tends to be very anticlimactic when it's obvious who will win, no matter what volcano tiles are drawn. Other than that, very nice game from the designer of Carcassonne.

Likes: Quick play. Two different game phases: populating city, saving citizens. Lava tile laying. Volcano. Dropping people into it. Historic theme.

Dislikes: Unfair distribution of take that cards. Many counter-intuitive rules. Anticlimactic end. Player induced balance.

Current status: Owned.

Thematically this may not be family friendly, but we love to play it. Yes, screaming is added to the game play which can get to be a bit much after more than a couple plays at a time. Love the game though!

This game has the best board game phase ever:

"Run for your Lives!"

This, of course, happens when Vesuvius is erupting...

Everyone come to Pompeii. Hey, is that smoke coming from the volcano?? We should get grandma to visit to see the smoke! Everyone, come visit us, there is a lot of smoke at the volcano!

Oh, shit, the volcano is exploding!!! Run!!!

Oh, no, lava . . .

(I have this one and might be willing to part with it)

We had time to play twice and I won both times, the first by the tiebreaker: I had fewer people in the volcano.
