Africa 1x 3p ww
People who say this is one of K-dawg's weaker titles are being silly. It's an exploration game, and weirdly, it really works. I really enjoyed traipsing around, and finding out what was hiding in the darkest continent. It's not Caylus, and as such, you should be prepared for a heaping dose of luck. The different scoring mechansims felt SO KNIZIA, but that's a good thing. Both Megan and her mom had a right laugh too.

Splendor 3x 3p
So, anyone who thinks this game doesn't have strategic or tactical implications is dead wrong. I got into it with my mother in law and her friend, and we really delved into it. We got to chew into the nitty gritty. By the third game, there was denying and reserving a-plenty. It's not as robust, and there's not as much wiggle room as there are in the Euros I enjoy, but to me, it has that sort of simple, controlled randomness and spite that I usually get from trick takers.

Ziegen Kriegen 1x 4p
Well Megan's dad is just as opinionated as Megan.
"The hell? Is this a game? You could just train four monkeys to put down a card one at a time. I want this game out of my house." Tell us how you really feel.

Kraftwagen 1x 4p ww
A wonderfully interesting game marred by a rulebook that could best be described as bovine toilet paper (It was just covered in bullshit). Luckily, I had heard such rumours, and had the FAQ handy. Megan and her dad were nonplussed by the game, but I could see a lot of interesting things to tease out, the market being the most interesting game of chicken. I wonder if JC would ever enjoy playing that market, or if it's a little too parse-able for his tastes. DESPITE that, and despite the rather daring design choice (pastel blue? Yes please!), it did not in any way feel historical, and the grand prix also felt a bit weird and tacked-on. I love the achievement style scoring (It felt like achievements in a video game in a good way!) and the conveyor belt of action/turn order drafting though (as in Glen More), and really look forward to putting this game through its paces. I can't wait to explore the way that action bottlenecks cause havoc with the turn order.
People were saying it was lighter than they thought, but I don't know what they were expecting, given Cramer's track record. It seems about his weight.
Honestly, if there wasn't such an unmitigated horror show of a rule book I think it might be much better received. It is, as I've come to expect from him, among the better of the middleweight euro offerings this year, and as such, it most certainly has a place on my shelf.

TtR: Europe 1x 4p ww
Played this with a friend's 5 year old son, without extra tickets or tunnels, and he quite enjoyed it. Infact, he wanted to play the "real way" next time. Good for him!

Candy Chaser 2x 4p ww
He also played this, and even going easy, Megan won both games. I knew she was a strawberry, I really did. Why did I guess lemon? Augh.

$2.25 at the SA. The box is dished in one corner and it is missing one of the player guides but I saw Rio Grande and Knizia and thought I would give it a try.

This Knizia title from 2001 has personal significance for me, and I quite like it. I don't need to own it, though, and I'm quite happy to play it every now and then and forgetting it meanwhile.
