Bill left after two games so we decided to give this a go. Swami had "played it to death" some years ago, not sure about Micah.

Good family game even though there is a bit of take that involved.

Swami got devoured by the lava in the early stages of the volcano eruption and came in third. I managed to save a few more of my folks than Micah.

Cool volcano! The deck setup instructions were rough, I think we messed it up three times. Now that I get it, I'll want to try it again.

Some will find the theme of this game a bit off-putting. You are after all going to be throwing other people's "family members" into the little volcano that sits on the corner of the board. Jurgen-Wrede's game has you first use cards to place your pieces on the board (here using little hexagon blocks rather than meeples). The tile placement is a phase that begins once the volcano begins to erupt. Tiles are place in the city as everyone tries to get out in time.

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.

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.
