Another game I've not played in a long time. It was fun remembering how to play mid-game! One of Dr Knizia's best IMO.

THE DEVIOUS TILE

So I am cheating a little as tiles and cards aren't exactly a game mechanism. However, I am adding this entry because I simply cannot remember a tile or card which makes me feel this way and totally ratchets up the tension in the game.

In Samurai, players place tiles to capture three types of pieces on the board. Once the pieces are surrounded by the tiles, players with the highest majority on their tiles for that particular piece will capture it. Apart from numerical values on tiles, there are two special tiles. The first is to reclaim and play a tile that was previously played. That is a mighty fine tile and one that is potent when played at the right time.

The other tile is just unbelievably devious. It allows a player to swap pieces on the board. So even though you have majority for one particular piece, after swapping pieces on the board, your efforts would just go to waste because you would have likely lost the majority.

I love and fear this tile at the same time. I would plot for multiple rounds just so I could make a swap on the board where I could gain an advantage in both locations after the swap.

One tile to generate so much tension.

A favorite of our Knizia games, I love the unique Japan map that always creates a few surprised responses. The game plays fairly well in a semi-abstract way. The math and scoring is always a bit tricky at first but makes sense after a few plays.

Everybody's familiar with the Rick-roll, but I'm currently on a Reiner-roll!

Last week it was a shrink copy of "Quo Vadis?" and now a complete version of "Samurai", Hans im Glück edition from 1999. Price: a modest 3.83$

Sure I already have a copy, but I'm never gonna not pick up a Knizia game at that price... and also I'm worried that one day, someone will eat one of the figures/tokens, as they have a cunning resemblance with Danish liquorice - and then it will be good to have a spare.

Games Played (3/27 - 4/2)

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game x2
I think I jumped the gun on my report from the prior week. We're still trying to win a 2nd time against Shadow and Flame. I haven't had time to retune the decks yet. This one is challenging.

Combat Commander: Europe x1
Game 2 of the latest VASSAL tournament. I played the Germans and didn't play my best game. I could have used some breaks going my way, which didn't happen. So I tried a desperate charge to try and give myself a chance at a win...which worked. I caught my opponent without ammunition while my troops ran in the open. I had a chance to win on a surrender (due to destroying enough of his troops) but then a couple random events increased his morale and took that chance away. My opponent played well.

Crokinole x1
Its been entirely too long since I last played on my board! I taught 3 new players and it was well received.

Hanabi x1
Played with 4 players. One player is probably a little shy about the competition element of gaming, and I think the notion that cooperative games exist and can be fun really opened his eyes. We'll probably play Eldritch Horror with him soon, which I'm looking forward to.

Machi Koro x1
This time I got to play with 5 players, so I think I got to experience the "real" game. Its nothing amazing, but I do see this game as having a role a bit like Splendor: very accessible and widely appealing. We decided to purchase a copy after this playing, but I probably won't push to get it on the table.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 x1
We played February, and won (first try). We eradicated a disease and named it "Gopher Pox".
Spoiler (click to reveal)
We created a really strong relationship between the Researcher and the Quarantine officer. Afterward, reading the forums I get the impression this is widely acknowledged as a "good combo". I anticipate the objectives changing soon, but for now we had an easy win. But the funding is going down!


Samurai x1
I have a renewed respect for some of Knizia's earlier Euro titles. They have an elegance and simplicity of design that is almost entirely absent from the popular titles now. This was well received and fun to play.

Seven Samurai(1954)

Finally watched the movie that was the source for "The Magnificent Seven". Since my wife wouldn't watch it with me, and it is quite long, I didn't watch it one sitting (recorded off TCM). I don't think that particularly affected my rating. Many of the things it is known for are now so common-place that they don't seem significant any more. I think I was expecting more violence and certainly more gore, but it was not particularly notable in those areas.
It does seem to deserve its reputation, however. I don't really mind subtitles (except that they mean I really have to pay attention and watch the entire time which I don't always do, especially on rewatches). It is clearly well-done. The actors all seem to maintain consistent persona for their characters, and all the motivations seem to make sense.
I won't rehash the well-known story, but this is definitely a movie worth seeing.

Format: VASSAL, PBEM

Teach? I can teach.

Expertise: Have about twenty games under my belt.


I usually do not do well with PBEM due to the constant back and forth. Samurai does not have too much of that so I would like to give it a go. Any takers?
