Week in Review

I already covered most of this week's plays last time, because they fell during CabinCon. They are shown here so my week doesn't look like only one game.



I had some old friends over on Friday and one of them loves Space Cadets: Away Missions, so we taught it to the other three. This was my first 5P session and it was probably longer than ideal at this player count but we still had lots of fun. We were moments from enacting our plan to smash the Spawning Vats, but the aliens overwhelmed Chief De Soto before we could complete our mission. The Rocket Patrol leaves no man behind, so our mission is considered a loss.

I picked up a copy of Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization and it's quite lovely to behold. I am looking forward to trying out the changes for myself. I realized as I was going through the components, sorting cards and stickering the wooden markers, that this game joins the elite company of Splotter games in my heart. Like them, this is a rare exception to my dislike of intense planning in games. I love the difficult puzzle of navigating Through the Ages! I can't wait to get it to the table again soon.

Plays: 0 1

Comments: Acquired in trade Fall 2015. Have played online, I know i enjoy this, so this is simply a matter of time (I hope).

First Play: CabinCON 2016 (January 2016)
Quote:
This was my first F2F play of this. Obviously, I prefer pushing the cardboard, but I also just really enjoy this game of THAI BREAKERS, and playful nonchalance. Early game IMO is often about demonstrating that you effectively do not care about the outcome of a topple.

Played a couple of two-player games of König von Siam. Lost the first one because I wasn't tracking my card playing in relation to what was coming down the pipe for provinces to evaluate and was forced to play cards that hurt me almost as much they helped me. Won the second one because blue was severely under represented on the board so I pushed hard for ties between red and yellow and won due to British invasion (I started with one more blue than the opponent, so I figured that duking it out for control over yellow or red wasn't the best way to go).

For those wondering, yes, I felt a little dirty to celebrate the British colonizing Siam.

On Sunday we finished off Thanksgiving dinner with a game of Taboo. My father, sister in common law, and I, against my brother, her mother, and her mother's boyfriend. The boyfriend had never played before, and the mother got a -1 round (that was actually a -3 round, but we were gentle), so they never stood a chance. Even though that was as fair as we could make the teams without splitting up the mother and her boyfriend (which I don't think we wanted to do) and have three players per team.

Now that I think of it, though, I bet we could have had a fairer distribution if we had gone two versus four. It just didn't occur to me.

A very clever idea for a Geeklist.

I own ten games from both the 4th and 7th BGG centuries, but I rate the games in the 7th higher overall, so it gets a place here.

KoS may be the toughest 2P euro we own. It's brilliant, painful, opaque, and surprising. I'll happily lose 10 of these before I play another single, forgettable game of Jaipur.

Other centuries, with winners:
- 4th century also has 10 games owned, winner Taluva
- 9 games owned in each of the 1st (Tigris & Euphrates), 2nd (San Juan), and 5th (Cuba Libre) centuries
- a surprising 6 games from the 12th century (Safranito)

Here's what we're going to do. Your task is to assess the randomly populated board and figure out how, over 8 turns, to use your 8 actions to both manipulate the board and earn faction majority. That's not 8 actions per turn, that is 8 actions you get to use over the entire game. Oh you thought timing was important in other games?

The parents headed out of town so we are doing the whole nuclear family thing (though with just one kid).

Only one play...my DIY set of Konig Von Siam.

I see a lot of potential in the game and really want to replay but My wife found it stressful.

Which I think is reasonable. Aton's genius is the randomness that takes the edge off of the 2P brainburn.
