It looks like people are finally able to find time for board games after the summer now. Last week I played Thursday and Sunday and a couple of really good games were played. Thursday my regular group of four people gathered for a BBQ and a board game. A surprise visit by the host’s brother meant we became 5 players instead – but that was great for our game of:



New to all of us as I had only recently found a copy of it and the expansion for a very good price: 60€ in total and never played. I’m trying to get as many of my unplayed games on the table before I head to Essen with some friends and this was one of them. And wow am I glad we played it. This game is incredible!! Straight into my top ten. Not a game I’m going to sell even though I could make some money on it. Such a shame it’s too expensive for more people to play it.

Sunday, three players needed a fourth and I had nothing else to do so I joined them for a couple of games:



One of the others had just bought Isle of Skye and wanted to try it. I didn’t mind as that meant I wouldn’t have to at Essen. It was okay but not my favourite kind of game so not one I’ll buy myself. I’ll stick to Carcassonne and auction games separately.

Quartermaster General was another one of my unplayed games that I wanted to play and they didn’t mind playing it. We started out with a learning game where Germany bulldozed through Russia and completely removed the Russian forces from the map which made it easy for the axis powers to win in round 9. We wanted to play a second game now that we understood it a bit better and this time Russia had learnt from her mistakes and went southeast into Kazakhstan and India instead and let Germany wear her forces thin on her eastern front. Some bad card draws for Germany and Japan made it hard to beat the allies’ relentless push into Western Europe and Japan set up too late so despite overtaking Australia and the Western US it was too little too late.

NOTE NOT ACTUAL GAME

Homemade version. I made this after deciding I would never be able to get the actual game. About a week after finishing... I got the real game. So here it is for your consideration.

While not professionally done, I would like to think it is decently made. I've included pictures, and if you would like more info or closer pictures of different things, just let me know.


The whole set


The boards. All are mounted on paperboard and covered on both sides to try to prevent warping


The wooden components. I used blocks from Lords of Waterdeep, so there are purple, white, orange, black, and red. The warehouses are green "cities" from your standard euro. The factories are color matched "roof" pieces.


The ships are spares from serenissima 2nd edition painted to match the colors the ships should be.


The scoring cards are done using my limited graphic design skills, but does the job of giving everyone a different scoring goal.


The loan cards are... loan cards. They do the job they are required to do.


Another view of the loan cards.


A closer view of the components.

Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak

A great book by a towering genius. What is a brilliant game that by a brilliant designer? Since I suspect a lot of meatballs would pick T&E give me a second one too. Pick your top two top games by top designers. So yeah you get to pick T&E but give me another.

I like games about production and shipping but my family did not like this one. Some nice heavy components in this game. Cards are not sleeved but in good playable condition (no creases or visible marks). Played about 20 times or so.

I'm always so impressed by how this game builds a purely player-driven economy. This is an idea that has no business working, but Container does it. When I'm with my hardcore gaming gaming buds, this brings out the best in us, meaning the worst, of course. This game makes me think in ways that no other does and I love it. The expansion is a waste of money, especially at current prices!

My favorite of the pure economic games. The open ended nature of setting prices in this one makes it a fun experiment with different players.

For a brutal "closed" and player driven free market, this one is pretty much without peer. Expansion not necessary but I'm glad to own it for something a bit different at times.

A real economic tour de force that is quite open to the group dynamics. The only weakness is that players constantly buying their own shipments can send the economy into a death spiral.

Container may be fragile in the wrong hands, but I've a great set of delightful opponents. And I'm happy to report that this is quite marvelous with the right folk. I need to keep my copy.
