Normally after the auction, I play in the Auction tournament. But since I'd won my game and qualified for the semifinals on Monday, so I played Atlantic Storm for something to do. Usually I play this at the bar with a beer in my hand, so playing in an actual tournament seemed a little out of place.

I ended up with a weird hand- the "play 2 cards or change a suit to combined" for both the Allies and the Nazis. I thought they were too good to dump, but it took a long time to find a time to play them. I also had a couple of good surface ships, but surface is really hard to play. So, I ended up playing to the limits of my ability, and lost

Another game with Terry, Chris, Sarah, and I think one other person who is escaping my sleep deprived memory ... I won this one which is odd for me since I usually struggle with Storm and Typhoon. I think I was just the quiet one at the table who got lucky when he had to.

Average rating: 6.5, but I rate it a 10. I LOVE this game. It's super easy, it's a wargame-y game that I can teach and get non-wargamers to play, and it's really fun when people get all table talky trying to win people over to their side each hand.

The luck of the draw can have quite an effect on the game, but smart hand management (and manipulation of the other players) can usually offset it. Playing with the maximum number of players also helps offset the luck element.

The UK is currently in the grips of Storm Imogen, which is pretty extreme weather by our standards (particularly for southern areas of England), but still not really comparable with much of the world.

So, in the spirit of me being British and thus compelled to talk about the weather, is there a particular weather event you have experienced that sticks in your mind?

Played by: Chris, Gordon, Russell, Mark, Andrew and Roy

I've been wanting to play this for a while, so thanks to Chris for bringing it along and teaching. The theme of the WWII Atlantic convoys is a good one and cards with pictures of battleships like Tirpitz, Bismark, Hood and Sunderland flying boats are a big draw, at least for me.

Unfortunately the play experience was not great - it's a fairly simple card game at heart but made fiddly by the WWII thematic chrome, which makes what should be a quick knock-about trick taking game run far too long. It's all kind of random and pretty luck driven - although it is not completely without the need for tactical decision making.

I sat on two points for most of the game but made a bit of a late come-back, I suspect mainly as I wasn't a threat so could be allowed to win a few tricks. Chris won - scores were [roughly - shout if I have done you a large injustice]

I enjoyed a great heat of Atlantic Euchre with John Gitzen, Robert Eastman, Eric Stranger, John Keating, and Alan Arnold. Alan had the misfortune to open an early lead and found himself on the short end of the spoils distribution as a result. John and John soon caught up and along with Alan looked like the favorites. I managed to play Tirpitz twice thanks to late position, with a hefty convoy on the line each time, but managed a meager seven points across two 2d6 rolls. I can't cry too much, however - over the course of the game Robert rolled five on four '?' rolls, total!

Detox with Metox

We had a nice play on the last convoy. I opened with a fated card (my best shot) but looked like I would win the hand when it came around to John Keating on my left. He had the card that fated my play, but realized doing so would toss the convoy to John Gitzen. He discarded instead. I won the convoy, and John K. won the game, edging John G. by a point. Fun game, good table.

Hadn't thrifted in a long while but found this one at Unique Thrift for $1.99. There was also an 80s version of Survive! there but I only had 3 dollars so bought this because of the Avalon Hill logo.

I played Pacific Typhoon at the Summer Sizzler event and was looking forward to trying its predecessor. Both games are great and this always feels like an "event" game for me. Six players, two hours, this game is not to be taken lightly, except that's how we take it. Lots of laughs and double cross. . . and beer.

Thanks Rob, Lexi, Kevin, Chris M, and Will.
