Probably known to all, this one. This game has enough catch-up mechanics to keep this fun for all who play it. I don't have the deluxe edition, and I'm not really thinking about getting it. When I play this, I take my pokerset along: we use the chips instead of the crappy paper money.

Just a few good games at the Board of Games meetup this week.

Kicked off the night with a copy of Race for the Galaxy I brought. I built a diversified economy-based produce/consume engine; he went for big military; I took the victory. I like the game on the occasions I play it, but it's so difficult to teach to nongamers that I'm not sure it's worth keeping.

Next up: a play of the new Tigris & Euphrates NEW!. Some people were playing the older version a few tables down, and, uh, it's a lot better looking. But hey, it's the gameplay that matters, and we had that in spades. I want to play this with my girlfriend and see if she likes it as much as Carcassonne. Probably not, because it's not as cool-looking on the table, but I can hope.

Everybody talks about the best-of-the-worst scoring, but what actually interested me the most was the tile cycling. Starting a war that you might lose feeds an opponent points, but it might get you those red tiles that you need to protect yourself. Also -why doesn't anyone call this an economic game? Leaders are essentially stocks in a particular kingdom that may or may not pay dividends and may or may not be bought out. Red tiles are sort-of-liquidity that you need to control your kingdom/company. Maybe it's just my Indonesia-addled brain.

Finished the night off with Power Grid. It is without a doubt my favorite game that I don't own, but there's no real need to as it's too much for my casual group and there are always copies floating around at meetups. It was a great session with a tense endgame; second-to-last-turn there were a few people who could power 13 but the only person who could build out would have lost on money. Last turn, I managed to pick up a 7 plant with little competition and built to (and powered) 16. There was maybe a bit of cheating, which dampened the mood a little, but it was still a great closer.

My favorite of the number crunching optimization games. Brass is a close second. I'd play this anytime.

6 players, USA board. I think our table felt like it was group victory because the 9yr old won with significant help from all the other players, not to mention a shrewd bidding strategy (never outbid anyone ever) which got her an early 5-city power plant at face value.

One of my favourite auction & market games. I just enjoy the expansion boards with varying rules or set ups, my favourite so far is the one with two resource markets (Japan?)

Power Grid is my most-played Euro game. I have played with all the official maps (including the Power Grid Deluxe maps), plus some of the unofficial maps.

My plays have been more-or-less evenly divided between 4, 5 and 6 player contests.

The slightly different rules for each map increase the replay value of PG.

While I am not a fan of PG's auction mechanism as such, I do enjoy it's economic planning. Plus I enjoy the delicate balance between necessary geographic expansion and manipulating the turn order.

GAME IS COMPLETE. This game is out of shrinkwrap but has not been played. Components are bagged up and in excellent condition. Rulebook has a little bit of krinkle to it from being read through (purely cosmetic).



Opening Bid: 10.00
Shipping: 20.00

I've largely moved away from middle-weight Euros. But Power Grid has delivered so much fun for so many years, I can't imagine not having it on my shelf. The game club might revolt.
