We had planned to meet at the booth where Djukertje1990 works on Saturday but of course I went there before just to lay my hands on a Knizia game as soon as possible. Curiously noone seemed to know him and this is not the only example of a trader who works on a booth but is not known until the day of the meeting!
Anyways, I found Djukertje1990 at his booth on Saturday with no problems.

I think Africa is a wonderful game. Simply wonderful It's a good example of why I ignore ratings on BGG - the game has an average rating under 6 on BGG - which for me would mean a game I'd be willing to play, but never choose - but it's my 20th favorite game.

I think the issue the game has is that it's a gamer's game with a fair amount of randomness. For whatever reason, randomness equates to a family game for most gamers - but this really _isn't_ a family game, being rather rules-heavy for such a game.

Aftermath
The end came abruptly. Oh, Knizia continued to produce tons of games and many of them were quality ones. But the gamers games, which really distinguished the magical 4-year period, were mostly absent. It's not clear why this happened. Perhaps it was Reiner's unerring sense of the gaming landscape (for a variety of reasons, mainstream heavy games became much harder to find starting in 2001). Or maybe he just decided to pursue the easier and more lucrative lighter titles, essentially returning to his roots. Whatever the reason, there was a sudden end to this phase of his design work at the turn of the century.

For me, the game that really emphasized this sudden switch was Africa. This was a much anticipated title 14 years ago, and why not? It was a Reiner big-box game and it sounded like another deliciously heavy design. Then, disappointment. The game was pretty good, but it was a middleweight, practically a family game. It was pre-'97 Reiner, dammit! The fact that it played quite well with its intended audience was overwhelmed by the fact that it wasn't what we gamers were expecting! The title was skewered by the critics (unfairly so, IMO) and Knizia's many fans eagerly sought a return to what had become his established level of quality, but to no avail. There would be many excellent games in the years to come and even a few heavy ones (Amun-Re, Blue Moon, Medici vs Strozzi) but the Reiner who had captivated us for four memorable years was gone, presumably never to return again.

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.
