Tarde de invierno (Winter Afternoon), by Jorge Lujan, Mandana Sadat

This is a gorgeous little book. Along with lovely art, it also has the twist of being bilingual with the poem written in both English and Spanish. What is a game that works well in multiple circumstances, something that has the ability to shine in many situations?

Received in the previous math trade. German Edition with an English rules printout. I have not got it to the table despite it being one of the forefathers of the Worker Placement genre (one of my favourite). It's hard for me to round up a willing group of people for this one.

Easy pick. While I don't necessarily adore all worker placement games, I still have fun, tough, and interesting games of Caylus. The interactivity, the emergent alliances (and betrayals), and the brinksmanship make this a special game.

My favorite of the worker placement games. The low luck factor combined with multiple paths of exploration put this at the top of my list.

A true classic. So replayable despite the lack of randomness after the set up.

Recommended as a heavier version of Agricola. Something to look into.

_9_ Caylus - 3 Players
_8_ Macao - 3 Players
_8_ Dominion - 4 Players; 3 Players; 2 Players (x2)
_7_ Morels - 2 Players
_6_ 10 Days in the USA - 4 Players; 3 Players
_6_ Patchwork - 2 Players (x2)


With the kids...
_8_ Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game - 2 Players
_8_ Dominion - 2 Players
_7_ Cardline: Animals - 2 Players (x2)
_6_ Backseat Drawing - 6 Players
_5_ Pokémon Trading Card Game - 2 Players (x2)


On vacation in Washington D.C. with my family minus one, plus a sister-in-law and visiting a brother-in-law and sister-in-law. Everyone really took to Dominion and we played some other games too.

(1) Caylus - Yet another play of Caylus that went different than all of them before. I finished second in this one with tons of castle-building and favors and very little buildings put up. Caylus is consistently a quality experience, especially with experienced players.

(2) Macao - This game is steadily approaching a 9 rating for me. The more I play it, the more I feel like it is Feld's best game. It's more erratic and random than I should like, but experience has shown me that there are many ways to control that randomness and put yourself in a position for success.

This next one may sound stupid. I can clearly hear the "Well Duh!" comments out there...

Tip #3: Know the game. Read instructions and watch videos.

If you know your going to be playing a certain game at a group gaming day...and you know you can be prone to AP...go read the instructions online so you know the game as much as possible and watch as many vids on BGG as you can.

I know this sounds dumb and should apply to everyone but...honestly it doesn't. Many people when learning a new game can absorb it and distill it down for a first play without much issue. They can just play a turn not worrying about if they are doing the right or "Best" thing.

A player with AP will not be able to. They will be the person who after the rules are explained will ask the most questions and then ask to see the instruction book as the game is about to start.

So if you have an AP person in your gaming group and you know your going to be playing a "Medium to Heavy" game next weekend...send them an email with links to instructions and video section on BGG. It will help everyone.
