My First "Hobby" board game, and to this day I consider this my favorite game, as does our game group. The pieces show wear and the box is crumbling, but a beloved possession none the less.

Found this version of History of the World. The contents and chits were jumbled all about the box so I did not have much hope that it would be complete, but I was surprised. It was. All in good shape too. $3.99 at GW in Phoenix.

History, Narrative: Its hard to beat Mike Duncan's History of Rome from start to finish. Not nearly as polished is Chris Stewart's History of China. As would be expected both implicitly take on the great men approach to things, but that's cause they really don't have much choice. One guy who explicitly takes this approach is Lars Brownworth...you might not dig the theory (I don't particularly) but his overviews of "12 Byzantine Rulers" and "The Normans" are both quite interesting introductions to their respective subjects. I started the History of English podcast and its nicely done but I stopped a few episodes in. Its on the list for restarting...some time.

History of the World / A Brief History of the World - I've come to prefer Brief, but the fun all traces back to the original. An epic game, where you can't get too attached to prior civilizations, and playable in a reasonable timeframe.

Outpost - The game doesn't have a runaway leader problem in my opinion - I've seen it happen only once - but does have a real fallaway trailer problem. But - the original remains the most enjoyable version of the system, in my eyes, and the system is great fun. Even when you're the trailer...

Res Publica - Knizia's ability to turn the classic game such as Go Fish into something for gamers is something I find amazing. Not that most gamers are so taken by Res Publica, but I find it consistently delightful. I do love trading games...

Heat #1: Monday--bad dice, bad draws...not a win in a game Christina Hancock won handily.

Heat #2: Wednesday--this was a much better result, as I was able to score the victory despite having both the Khmers and US in the game.

Semi-final: Thursday--I have never, ever had worse empires passed to me than I did in this game. And it wasn't anybody's fault. I drew mediocre empires that were too good to pass to the leasder but not good enough to keep myself. The leader then usually ended up drawing with the option of only passing to me. While another player drew and kept Persia, Macedonia, Arabs, Mongols, Portugal, and Britain (and somehow lost!), I toiled away with Assyria, Celts, Khmers, Vikings, Aztecs/Incas, and the US. That is 43-count 'em-43 strength points for an entire game. Somehow I came in third, but it wasn't anywhere near close enough to advance to the final.

A rather odd one this. A Compendium Games Dutch version box, but the contents are all in English (punched but pristine), so what's that all about?

As I said, it looks like it was played once maybe. RESULT!!

£2.99 from OXFAM Finchley Central N3. (Only 2 doors away from Leisure Games so it pays to be ever optimistic)

What's your favorite thing to read?

I read pretty widely, but history is my real love. In fact, I tend to force myself to alternate reading other types of books rather than read history after history after history.
