On the subject of Brass, have you seen the preliminary board for the new version?



As well as including beer as a new industry, it seems to feature pottery too. (Kate had relatives who worked in the pottery industry of Stoke so this is an interesting addition to see.) I know there are lots of Brass fans among us - are you looking forward to this expansion?

Looking at that Quebec board got me thinking: it's fairly zoomed in - if you lived in the region you could probably mark an X on that board where your house is. If you lived in central London, with something like Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective you could potentially pinpoint the very building you live in. What is the most detailed boardgame map you know of? I'm reminded of Carol's recent post about the board for 18NY with her home town on it. Are there any games with boards featuring your home? Which one most accurately reflects that place?

(I feel like this question may have been asked before but I've forgotten - I'm sure we've had some house moves and new Phoenixes since then anyway.)

Brass is the only one I know of with Warrington in it, where I grew up.


There are several games with Sheffield on the map, e.g. Stephensons Rocket or Steam Barons. The Steam Barons map is particularly fun for including Chesterfield's crooked church spire instead of the regular church picture all the other towns got.

I too am falling out of step with BGG tastes. I own seven games from the list: Food Chain Magnate, Caverna, Puerto Rico, Brass, Power Grid, Roll for the Galaxy, and Agricola.

Overall I am not deeply motivated to try new games. I'm not playing as much as I used to, exploring less, and mainly content to explore old backlists of games I missed from years ago. If someone shows up with a new game under their arm, I'm happy to give it a try.

Blood Rage seemed like a lot of fun the one time I tried it. Shame it is so expensive. Otherwise nothing much caught my interest from the list.

Out of the list, I have played 16 of the titles. The ones I own I rate mostly 8+. FCM is still sitting at a 7, as I need more time with it. Agricola has fallen to a 7, as I am more interested in exploring Caverna at this time. I'm a bit stingy with my ratings, so my "7's" might equal your "8's".

After playing a friend's copy with the game group and becoming quick fans, my wife ordered the new version that includes the 2-player board and surprised me with it last month. We finally tried the 2p side tonight!

Good news, Brass is the same great game with 2p. The tough decisions, map control, and player interaction that make the game great 3-4 are also in full force with 2p. And the new metal coins are really nice.

My wife decided to do heavy research and build ships. Since she locked me out of ships, I tried to combo cotton and ports. We were pretty much dead even after the canal phase, though she had a few more industry tiles remain on the board due to her heavy research. I got in a huge cotton shipment at the end of the rail phase, but it wasn't enough to counteract the two ships my wife was able to buy. Final score was about 185-165.

It's worth noting that we both felt the cotton demand wasn't as contentious with 2p as it seemed with 3-4. The external demand never fell below 2 and we weren't fighting over ports. Time will tell if that's just a characteristic of the 2p game or just how this particular game played out.

Overall, I am very pleased with the 2p implementation. thumbsupthumbsup

BRASS



My first play of Brass was the other day. I'm one of those 3 years in the hobby guys that got into really heavy games in the last year or so and its been taking me a while to get the classics played.

Gotta say I really enjoyed this game. I'm always afraid that some of these older games are going to not hold up -cough Puerto Rico -cough- but this one absolutely was amazing! I found the specialization vs.flexibility in this game and finding the balance was very unique and kept me thinking about the game and different strategies long after I was finished. I must say I put up a respectable 2nd place after keeping most of my industries from the first age on the board through innovation giving me a great starting point going into the 2nd age where I was able to place and flip all my cotton industries as well as build an extremely large network of rails.

I enjoyed :
1. the amount of interaction in this game.
2. The balance of specialization vs flexibility
3. The mid game reset from age to age
4. The strange unwanted forced pseudo coops in the game
5. The clever turn order mechanism that you can game to no end!

Week of July 3rd

Rating:
# of Plays: 1

I finally got to play Brass this week, with the Clever Head Gamers from Burlington, NC (about an hour's drive from my house). I wash't sure how I would feel about it. On the one hand, I've already played Age of Industry a couple of times and really liked it. On the other hand, I've read reviews and articles such as N/A that gave me pause, depsite the humor. One we got playing, I didn't really feel it was that bad, probably in part because I had played its little brother. There were some rules I stumbled over, and I didn't really start to get the hang of it until after we'd switch to the railroad era, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I feel there is a lot of subtle player interaction in this game: the kind you can definitely benefit from, but not without also benefiting your opponents. The trick is to help them a little, but ensure that in doing so, they're helping you back. Really, Martin Wallace designed it that way, and he did a brilliant job. I hope to play this again soon, before the rules become stale in my mind. Great game.

Others: Archon: Glory & Machination, Burgle Bros. (x2)
