TransAmerica

A pre-operative male-to-female transsexual takes an unexpected journey by train to five cities across the US...


I received this in a trade before Christmas and found the opportunity to play it earlier this month. And then I found a couple more opportunities. This has worked exceedingly well with all of the occasional gamers I've introduced it to. Choo choo!

The King Is Dead



This is a wargame, isn't it? whistle
The easy-to-teach-but-intriguing-to-play core of this game has me anxious to play it again, but the occasional gamer friends I played it with were left scratching their heads after the game had finished. One can hope.

Clans



I received this gem in the same trade as TransAmerica. I had been looking for it after seeing very positive things said about it in a game chat league. I wasn't let down, but once again my friends were left wondering what they had just experienced after playing this.

King Chocolate


If a game can be judged by how much I curse my friends' names while playing it, then this one is a winner. I want to kick the tires on this and look under the hood to see what the engine looks like.

R-Eco


I played this with two, and it gave me the same feeling I had when I played 3 sind eine zu viel! which I guess is like 6 nimmt! I enjoyed it! but I was left with a feeling that I might reach for another card game when the time comes! Maybe it just needs an exclamation point!

A good game, but maybe not my genre. One of the few strategy games that I have seen that is easy to learn, does not have hidden optimal strategies to burn new players, and winning is simply a matter of out-planning the other players.

Happy to find this but it's incomplete. All cards but only half the rails and maybe half the pawns. Luckily i have plenty of train pawns from pilfered games to replace them all. Rails too can be replaced at a craft store no problem. Some plastic on the cards will cover their well used condition. All in all a great find that I can rebuild. 2.99 GW - great day!

Time.

I don't think that anyone will challenge the notion that the average playing time of classic Eurogames is shorter than the average playing time of modern Eurogames. Classic Eurogames typically have a playing time of 30-90 minutes, whereas most modern Eurogames seem to typically have a playing time of 60-180 minutes. Some hopefully representative examples, as stated on the games' respective BBG pages:

Classic Eurogames

TransAmerica: 30 min
Carcassonne: 30-45 min
Modern Art: 45 min
Torres: 60 min
Tigris & Euphrates: 90 min
Modern Eurogames

Trajan: 90 min
Keyflower: 90-120 min
Terra Mystica: 60-150 min
Le Havre: 100-200 min
Dominant Species: 120-240 min










Obviously, gamers have different experiences in mind when they choose games with shorter or longer playing times. A shorter playing time allows for a more casual approach with weekday evening sessions, and the option of playing the game repeated times or playing several different games in an evening. A longer playing time often requires a more serious approach with gaming events at weekends or holidays, and invites to more epic and in-depth sessions. Regardless of which preferences one might have, I'd say that this is a significant difference between classic Eurogames and modern Eurogames.

This is the canonical long-OOP game that should garner a fair amount of interest with a reprint. I regretted not picking this up when it was in print and reasonably priced.

According to Rio Grande Games this will be a Jan. 2016 publication, and Miniature Market has it up for preorder.

2:30pm Saturday

This event was scheduled by the con director based on popular demand at previous conventions, with start time optimized so you can play many other con director picks during the day. It will almost certainly have one or more boards seated.


Perrianne could demo/lead this game, but she's over-extended, and this slot is available.

Comparing the price in the thrift store (3 €) with prices here on BGG or Amazon (40-80 €) let me swallow hardly. Don't know why it's that high in price but glad to get my fingers on this short and pretty cool game.
