 7   UR
 8   Kingdom Builder
 9   Container

What a great session. Container (again!) this week was very successful. The players tell me they enjoyed it and various interested parties gathered at points throughout the game. I think it may have a future here.
I got to play Kingdom Builder again. I'd like to play against some stronger opposition soon as I can't remember the last time I lost a game of it. Before that, however, I'd like to play with some of the expansion included.
I've now played UR three times and the play experiences have been varied. It varies hugely in length and until I have four 'experienced' players around the table I'm not sure whether i'm going to see what it has to offer. That unreliability with inexperienced players may cause it to languish on the shelf at some point which leaves it somewhat precarious. Thankfully it can probably be 'reduced'.

Sophie is enjoying the process of Guess Who? She's not really noticed that she loses every game, which might be a good thing or bad thing.

Mesopotamia had similar issues to UR. As a classic euro it has conflict and strategic depth but doesn't hold your hand up to that 'experienced' point like modern euros do. It might be a really good game but is it enjoyable enough to get sufficient opponents there.

Nice to while away a half hour or so with Cartagena after chatting around the firepit outside with the SiL and her husband. Finished with a hand of Dobble where we played the game that you take from a central tower and match to opponents which is particularly bash-your-leader but fun.

 5   Coloretto x2

 5   Dominant Species: The Card Game

Got up early this morning and played DS:tCG and YE with my boys.

Yesterday I started a unit on games with my EFL students. Years ago I'd made a student-safe version of CaH for classroom use. I finally brought it to class and it was a huge hit. Funny thing: my military/police and history majors had no idea even what the concept of sexting (the raciest card in my deck) was. My natural science majors did, and all admitted to having either sent or received sexts.

A colleague taught me Splendor. I've played worse.

Two great gaming highlights this week. The first was basking in Cuba Libre victory for all of 6 hours before learning of the undercover cop who took it from me. Though I should say that it was the compliments of my fellow gelati that really made me smile.

Second was a no-holds-barred Game Club session with Container (whose rating I've upped to a 9). It wasn't apparent to me right away because I was a bit too focused on my own thing, but I soon realized I was positioned for my first big win at this tremendous game. My hunch was correct, as I trounced the field 167-148-113-85-78. (Not to say my acumen doesn't need work: I'd thought the guy with 78 points was my main competition.) Nevertheless an evening I'd be happy to re-create anytime. One last wrinkle: the scarcity of the game (and the only oringinal copyin our group moving away in September) drove one of our fellowship to hand-craft his own out of balsa wood. Looks pretty good, too:

This was a ton of fun to build, though I had to remake the dang foamcore ships twice since I botched them in various ways. I did not know anything about Container when I started this project... and now I'm slavering like a rabid wombat to build a copy for myself and dive off the deep end of economic games (I'm already mapping out several 18xx games and Neue Heimat to build, as well as picking up Brass...).

I opted for full-sheet label paper on this one as after using spray-adhered linen paper for Puerto Rico, I just don't think the final product (while nice!) is worth the effort. In this case, all of the label-sheet components look excellent, regardless. I considered making tokens rather than printing the paper money, but Heiko's design for the paper stuff is quite good, and I suck at graphic design and image editing anyway, so I opted to stick with the standard files. I printed the cash on single-sheet 65lb linen paper double-sided and it's really nice.







When I make this for myself, I'm not going to use an XACTO knife or rotary cutter for the ships--I'm going to use standard scissors. I just can't help but cut a bad angle on the foamcore otherwise. I'm also going to use black foamcore instead of white...

I finally got me a copy of this yesterday and put it on the table tonight. We played with five, and it was everyone's first game except my friend Jacob who had played once before. It was...a weird game.

Everyone's goods seemed overpriced to me from the start, and worse yet, people paid for them. I kept doing the math in my head thinking I must be playing this game wrong, or people know something I don't. I would put in bids and be way overbid by someone else. People kept taking out loans and overbidding, and other people would get huge payouts, and I was afraid I was missing out.

As the game went on, there were less and less containers available, and none on my side of the island. I was getting worried, and often considered buying my own goods, but objectively couldn't when I was being offered more than they were worth to me. Because I was always flush with cash, I never took out a loan.



So how'd it turn out? This was the final haul before removing containers. I only had two containers on the island after removal. I won with $122, only one other player cracked $100. Even if I had zero containers on the island, I still would've won.

So yeah, definitely a game where people need to know how to value things. The math seemed simple to me, but I guess not so much to everyone else.

It's an interesting game, though honestly I'd rather play Goa or Neue Heimat. I'll try it out as many more times as people will let me over the next month and update my thoughts.

I haven't rated any game 10 and only nine games have gotten a 9 from me so far so it's quite easy for me to find out. Container is the game with the lowest average rating and it isn't low: 7.10

If I go down to 8 then MarraCash would be the one with 6.84.

Guildford Gamers 8   Container
 N/A   Specter Ops NEW!

So I got Container to the table for the third time in a month I believe. It was a good play as everyone seemed to enjoy it. I suspect I could fairly easily get it to the table again if I tried. Which I may do in future.

Then we played a Mister X / Scotland Yard game for the Kickstarter generation; Specter Ops. Poorly written rules (or at least, poorly explained), slightly stilted theming, BOOOTIFUL miniatures and pretty decent gameplay (if we played right). I'd play again though (just with some rule clarifications!)

Work
 9   Santorini x6

I convinced a Greek work colleague (Stelio for those LoBsters who might know him) to play Santorini which was an easy sell. He really enjoyed it especially when I brought the God abilities in after three plain games. Really good time thinking through the paths.

 9   Catchup x2
 9   Mini Shogi
 10   Go

With Sophie (eldest)
 8   Loopin' Louie x2
 6   Ker Plunk x2

She still can't quite work out Loopin' Louie. I think it really needs four players to make some sense to her. we have a bee themed version of Kerplunk which she really enjoys, and frankly I quite enjoy setting it up. The little bees really help.

The economic themes developed in this game are fantastic!

Inflation or deflation
Government subsidies
Supply/Demand
Opportunity Cost
etc.

For an excellent review, read: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/299037/container-review

Here are some excerpts:

cfarrell wrote:
The endless run of economic games where it's impossible to lose money does become tiresome at some point; how can it be a real economic game if you always come out ahead no matter how badly you play?


cfarrell wrote:
...the capacity for the occasional train wreck is a side-effect of Container being as interesting and authentic as it is.


cfarrell wrote:
So, Container is pretty unforgiving of uncomprehending play. Fair enough. But for players who can grasp the fairly straightforward but subtly textured economics here, Container is tremendously rewarding. With wall-to-wall tough choices, an economy that evolves and grows in interesting ways that require the players to constantly adapt, relentless pacing, tough money management choices, and a great deal of freedom for players to develop their own economic models along fundamentally different lines, Container is a great game.

Container was one that I wanted to try for a long time and I finally had the chance to do so earlier this year. I enjoyed the game so much that I put together my own copy after seeing Heiko's redesign here on BGG. I love the interaction between the players as the economy fluctuates and this one has been a big hit with some people I play with so I'm hopeful that I will hit ten plays this year.

Then they decided they would carry on buying warehouses/factories/producing and almost tanked the economy. Just before my third turn I pointed out that £70 of the £100 starting money had left the economy of the game. This seemed to wake them up but it did make for a slightly stilted fist half of the game. I won handily when I received a bid of £25 for a full set of 5 containers which I'd bought for £10. That tidy £40 profit set me up for a comfortable win after having been blocked out of the market for all of the mid-game. Great fun. Hopefully I'll get it played again. I've vowed to keep taking the same four games to the club until I have played them all three times there.
 8   Codenames x2 - A nice closer to gather players finishing other games. I was paired with someone on my wavelength and we cleaned the opposition's clocks twice over.

With Family
 7   Cartagena - With Kathryn. She quite enjoys it but this time, one on one, I won handily.
 N/A   Guess Who? NEW! - Taught this to Sophie who enjoyed asking questions but wasn't all that good at removing options or asking good questions!
 7   Animal Upon Animal - Played this with Sophie though she just wanted to watch me do everything I still count her as being involved.
