It's almost disgraceful that I didn't play this game last year! I feel like I should play it at least twice this year just to make up for that.

JANUARY:

I've recently been going through my first Martin Wallace phase. Last year I got into the Railways of the World series which was my first foray into his oeuvre. I really dig that game and love the expandability with the different map packs available. Also been into playing A Few Acres of Snow on Yucata.de a lot lately, which has been really fun and gratifying to explore. Since I love the different maps available with RotW, I figured I would be more interested in Age of Industry over Brass.

I got AoI last year and played it a couple of times, and it hasn't quite clicked with me yet. I enjoyed my plays of it, but it seems a little loose in a few places. I couldn't help but try it's predecessor Brass, so I went ahead and picked up the EGG Deluxe Edition with the 2-player map and metal coins included.

I have 1 play so far and I already think I like it better than AoI. I really enjoy the need to flip tiles to score them and have them contribute to your economy. I really like the way loans are handled in this rather than "anytime" loans in AoI. I also think it's cleaner that every acton requires a card to perform. I generally like when players can control game speed (as with the card draws in AoI), but this game seems to work very nicely in a structured format of a given X-number of turn. I think this format contributes to more long-term strategy implementation. AoI felt more like tactical turn optimization, rather than setting up a more long-term payoff round. Really want to play this one more this year online and especially in person.

I am not looking forward to teaching this, however.

Just two games for me this week:

Brass -- We played a nice 3-player game. I had the first turn, so I decided to build a port. My opponents took loans, and then on their second turns decided to build their own ports rather than use mine. So, I took my own loan and built a cotton mill. The first era I basically focused on taking loans and balancing that with some income, which meant I forgot to build almost any connections whatsoever. This left me with a substantial points deficit going into the second age. However, I also had a huge stack of cash which my opponents were missing.

I burst onto the second age, and honestly my economy just outstripped my opponents. I built out all but one of my cotton mills, and placed all of my railroads. Sure, both of my opponents had boats and I didn't, but I still ended with likely my high score of 188, a full 30 points ahead of them.


Wealth of Nations -- Game #2, though it was incomplete. One of the guys goes to bed early, so we knew it would be an incomplete game going into it. I started with Food and Energy, which was less than pleasant for me. I managed some small expansions to both industries, but so did my opponents who held capital and ore production. The next round I ended up with an extra capital good because I'm bad at math, so I used it to relocate my energy tiles next to the other experienced player, pinching off his planned ore and labor expansions. He called me a dick, and we decided that was probably enough WoN for the night


On my mind:
House excitement! Such hype! Very wow! We've lined up all of our utilities now, and we're in full-on packing mode. Our place looks simultaneously like a bomb went off, and completely empty. It's strange.

#6 - Brass Revised Edition
I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed Age of Industry. That said, I found the art abysmal. I have a lot of faith in Rowley to pull off something awesome, and I'm looking forward to seeing the final product!

 8   Sticky Stickz (5p)
 8   Brass (4p)

It was nice to get to play Brass again. I came in a solid second. I still find the restrictions of the card play hard to visualise and hard to plan for. I can imagine if I were more on the ball I could even track what cards were yet to be played. I rode the turn order well but I missed some obvious power plays like developing when iron was cheap and building mines when demand is about to rise. I didn't rush to get external markets to take cotton when it was massively under-utilised. Late in the game I missed an opportunity to block the winner's second level 2 shipyard whistle And... the Birkenhead rules... wtf!

With Sophie
 8   Sticky Stickz
 7   Animal Upon Animal x2
 7   Gulo Gulo

Things continuing nicely on this front. Unfortunately it's been difficult to play sticky Stickz with her now that she understands about turn taking. She wants to play this fast-reaction game by turns. She also only gets to play with me when she's tired and Kathryn isn't trying to get us all to get some fresh air. This is causing her to sometimes give up on a game if she finds it difficult or she's not doing well.

With friends
 8   Crokinole
 8   Coup

Coup can definitely leave the collection. It's a shame since I have the Kickstarter edition with amazing artwork and the expansions and blah blah blah but when it comes down to it, for bluffing/social deduction/secret roles I have Skull, Kakerlaken Poker, Resistance and Two Rooms and a Boom (not to mention 6 Nimmt! and probably some others I'm forgetting). Even then, KakPok seems a little redundant. I don't see a situation where I'd rather play Coup over Skull or Resistance (depending on player count) so why keep it.

Crokinole is nice but I need to keep the board in better condition (it needs waxing and the pieces need... something).

Online
 7   Blokus Duo

Wow, OK I probably need to catch up with my LittleGolem moves otherwise I'm going to start losing on time.
