Love the world.

It took me the better part of a weekend to get through all of that. And I'm probably still not done. I've got an urge to add more bracing to some of the bigger ships, and I might tear out the walls and rethink the Imperials (especially if I get more ships with Wave 3). With foamcore construction, that's pretty easy to do.

Speaking of foamcore, many thanks to everyone who contributed to the thread I've linked below, which was really instrumental in giving me confidence and some excellent tips on techniques (especially Aleene's Tacky Glue (!!), tabbed corner construction, and the use of straight pins as temporary supports while glue is drying):

Need Help making Foam core box inserts

Slide all the trays back in, put on the top, and slip the whole thing back into its Expedit docking bay:



Everything's in one box, with everything in its place, and room to grow. My OCD impulses can rest easy (or look elsewhere for new fodder).

Next up for Table Two was a few round of Finito!.


Tom won twice, Nyck won once, and Jeff won three times.

(Therefore, what is the minimum and maximum number of rounds that could have been played? This question is worth six points.)

We had time for exactly one game of Finito!, so that's what Tim, Tycho, Nathaniel, Jerry, Nyck, and 5ric played.


Jerry won.

Machi Koro with both expansions and with five players can take a while (especially if some people have to stop and read every. single. card.) so Andy, Elden, and the newly-arrived Kory needed some fillers before they would be allowed back on Table One. Accordingly, they played a bunch of Finito! games.


Andy won games 2 and 6, Elden won games 1, 3, and 7, Kory won game 5, Kory and Elden split victory on Game 4, and Tom, who had wandered over for the final rounds, failed to win any.

Finished off the night with 2 games of Finito! The game was familiar to me, so I'm not sure if I've played it before as a game, or what, but I hadn't logged any plays of it on BGG, so who knows.

Table Three continued to avoid any games with any meat on their bones, instead settling for four games of Finito!.


Kyri won games one and four. Eric won game two. Lisa won game three.


Kelli, Jeff, Suzie, and Kyle all did not win game one, game two, game three, or game four. But I'm sure they did their best.

Number of Plays -- 16
Number of Games I own -- 296
Number of Games I've previously owned -- ~1300

There's actually one other game I've played 16 times without ever owning, but it's an Unpublished Prototype, so perhaps not so interesting to list here.

End: ~10:00pm


Although Andy actually owns two! legitimate copies of this great filler game, Leif chose to showcase his homemade print-n-play version. For the record, the CBBS does not sanction such shenanigans.

The players were Lynette and Constance (with no wins), Suzie, Leif and Tim (one win each), and Alan with three wins.

When Caleb refused to end Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age and forced another round of turns, eight or more CBBSers found themselves sitting around with nothing to do until Table One finally wrapped things up. Accordingly, some, none, or all of them played Finito!. Twice.


In Game One, Tom and Shawn shared victory, while Andy, New Tom, Eric, Erik, Ori, and Cymi shared defeat.


In Game Two, Cymi and Andy shared victory, while Ori, Constance, New Tom, Erik, and Alan tasted the bitter, irrelevant fruit of unvictory.

But not with the entries.

A big boom will follow soon.

Two easy play games and a kosmos 2p game in this order

V alue d10-9
I interesting d10-8
P layable d10-8
E xecution d10-8
R eplayability d10-9

total 42/50

Finally found a copy. If there is one game that deserves a reprint this is it.

Finito is a game i discovered on happy meeple. I got second in the global rankings.
It has everything for me to be a perfect filler.
There is no theme.you are arranging numbers on your playing board.
So there is tileplacement. there is odds calculation in a very short time frame. Much like one of the true classics Can't stop.
it plays equally well with two, three or four players.
You can explain the game in a minute. And there is dice rolling.
there is a huge revivement in that genre and this was one of the first to push it. It is more exciting to roll dice than to collect sets.

The start time of Eclipse barely beat the end time of Traumfabrik, so Table Two was obviously going to need a filler of some kind. That kind was Finito!, and the gamers were Lynette, Caleb, Leif, Scott, and Alan.


(But not Andy.)

Leif won both games, thereby ruining the experience for 80% of the gamers in attendence. Harrumphadoodledo.
