Nick 40 (winner), Eric 33, Erin G 29, Erin D 26

Metropolys, a perennial game day favorite that is kind of a spatial Ra, saw another play with Nick earning the victory.

Don't fall in love with me yet, we only recently met
mbmbmbmbmb
Tuesday games night was down to only three. We chose a game each, and we won a game each (not the same ones).

Metropolys
The others hadn't played before and I adopted my usual tactic of hanging back until they'd spent their high tiles and then pouncing once the lay of the land was clearer. It ended 40-something, 30-something, 20-something and I even managed to complete two 'lamp-post' objectives.

Impulse
The game turned on two battles at the sector core, both of which I lost to Andy on 'defender wins ties'. He was on 17VP and I was reduced to a single transport, but I managed to use it to build a cruiser, take one of Andy's out in battle, sabotage two more and end my turn with 4 ships. Andrew couldn't finish the job of wiping him off the map though, and he was able to scrape over the line next turn.

Istanbul
Immediately following the wild swings of Impulse, this felt like a very tightly-constrained efficiency race. Andrew pipped us to the post, but both Andy and I would have got our fifth crystal on the next turn.

2-4P

Played at all player counts. The only thing that changes is the amount of the board that is used. otherwise, game play is the same, including the excitement of outbidding your opponent(s).

Bonnie Kate seemed to think I was in a strong position until I told her I could count my bonus points on the fingers of a slug.

I still haven't worked out either how to play this or how to answer the question "what kind of game is it?"

more supervised Bridge play. i'm learning to overcome transportation problems. just when i think i understand it, transportation becomes more difficult!!

Sean and I played What’s My Word mid-week and i actually beat him! he is sooooo good at word games that i never thought i’d beat him at one. i chose my 2 guess words carefully: FRECKLE really stumped him!!

Neos is harmless enough. it is a simple little multiplayer solitaire. i didn’t love it, but didn’t hate it either. speaking of MPS, also played Rolling Japan - this one i like!!

we gumshoed our way around London solving the case of the Mystified Murderess. yikes! this case was a little nutty. i read after the fact that this is one of the weakest cases of the set. i still enjoyed myself thoroughly - it’s fun! - but i was disappointed when i read how Holmes solved it. cheater.

i lost to Sean in Haru Ichiban which seems totally unfair considering it was his first game and i’ve played half a dozen times. still enjoying this lovely little thing.

a first play of Metropolys. i loved it. to connect to the topic for this week’s list - this is exactly the kind of game that i love: simple rules, interactive, spatial. i enjoyed the interesting twist on the auction mechanic. i completely blew it and got smushed in scoring….

…. but got revenge in The Castle!! bwah ha ha! i love this game!

mb mbyour weekly moment of Elephant:mb mb
elephants are very long-lived. Asian elephants can live into their 70s and African elephants into their 50s. what is the cause of most elephant deaths? predators? heart disease? stroke? cancer? none of those! it is because of lack of elephant dentists! the diet of elephants abuses their teeth. after decades of wearing them down eating wood and rough vegetation they lose their teeth. they starve soon after their last set is shed.
getting a tooth check up: looks like this one might need a filling!

Good week!

My wife was out of town so I spent a lot of time in my "game cave" looking at games and digging out old things.

I planned a game night with my a couple of friends looking over each other's game lists trying to decide what we wanted to play with no real decisions. I had requested Beyond Baker Street because we had played Hanabi before, they wanted to try Coconuts and Rolling Japan.



Since we had Beyond Baker Street planned so I did a play test of that to make sure I knew how it worked. It was the first game of our game night. It worked well and we barely won which makes it exciting.



We switched to Coconuts(requested - probably because he has kids) but it was just us adults), I was glad to win because I rarely beat him




We then switched to Meropolys. This had been recommended on a different podcast as a must play. After we set it up and started I realized I must have played this years ago because it felt familiar, I just have not been logging that long so I couldn't be certain. I enjoyed the game - very interesting mechanisms and city building feel.



We switched to a light option. Rolling Japan. Since they had requested it - turns out I forgot it at work - so before our game night I had found a copy of the map on line and the required dice at home to get a play in. I do not recommend making your own copy w/o owning one first.


We ended the night with Roll for the Galaxy. A game we all were familiar with and enjoyed.


With my wife out of town I pulled out games I wanted to figure out and played them solo.


Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective - this is the 1983 brown binder version that I've not played since about then. It still has my case notebook in it. Having been about 30 years I was certain I'd forgotten the cases and just started over with case one. I worked thru case one - and took the quiz. I had figured out 5/6 of the quiz answers and not even encountered one of the quiz questions within my investigations.



Alchemists- I played a full two player game - just playing each player. Hard to keep things secret in my mind between the two players, but it was the only way in my mind to work thru the rules and understand the consequences of publishing, last round, end game scoring. I still struggle to figure out the logic and particularly how I'm going to teach it to others.



Mage Knight Board Game - I've had this for years sitting on my shelf per my son's request. I opened it up and realized it was still in shrink and never been played. I knew it had solo options so I set it all up and worked thru the rule book. I did not actually complete a solo game yet.

One of my favorite "deep" games that is light on components and rules explanation. There is also a "family" variant that you can try before playing the "full" game. Although, honestly, the difference is negligible, but just thought you should know, in case that's of interest to you.

As Mr. Nuts reminds us about Metropolys, the designer intended to copy the brilliant spatial auction found in Goa but... misunderstood the way in which it was supposed to play out and created something equally charming, unique, and meaningful. If everything is a remix, what are the virtues of the "failed" copy whether intentional or not? What other games might exemplify this?

My thoughts on Metropolys
Metropolys is an interesting abstract bidding game with a attractive gameplay to gametime ratio, as it packs a lot of strategy within only 15-20 minutes. The artwork is horribly confusing, although it is quite nice. I like this game a lot, and it fills a slot as a great strategic filler.

What I especially love:
A lot of game in a short playtime.

What I don't like:
The busy artwork doesn't help me concentrate...

Star ranking
Fun:
Satisfaction:
Esthetics:
Replayability:
Verdict: Not essential, but probably a keeper - 7
