Chris & Jason 6 (tied), Chad 0

While waiting for more people to arrive, Jay, Chad, and I got in two quick games of Biblios. In the second, Jay and I tied with dice worth 6 and no money.

Creating illuminated manuscripts - seems like it should be a fit.

If so we should also include Biblios Dice, Scripts and Scribes: The Dice Game, and perhaps Bibliogamo?

I noticed someone had a copy of Biblios sitting at their table so I mentioned that it was a fun game. They showed interest in learning it so I set it up. As I opened the box, I noticed my sticker inside and realized it was my copy. It was probably the closest game I've played, with scores of 3, 4, 5, 6 in the end.

Jugado Semana Santa de 2015:
Me gusto MUCHO, so far de los que probe de subasta es el que mas me cierra, elegante y bien planteado. La tematica esta medio pegada con moco, pero la presentacion de la caja onda biblia le sube muchos puntos.

Monks in a dimly-lit library. The only monasteries I have any interest in would be those that brew beer. No such thing here. But a great little game hides in that depressing box!

new review: Memoir '44
mbmbmbmbmb
Late to the mid-week party, but here goes anyway ....

image by duchamp

Biblios was the new-to-me game of the month. Clean and simple gameplay, plus a dynamic that evolves over the two halves (the gift half and the auction half). I think it really benefits from an auction at the end of the game, instead of towards the beginning of rounds like usual.

image by duchamp

I also got to experience a 4-player game of Istanbul. It's a fun, balanced game with relatively little downtime since your tactics are subject to the player before you and the player after you. I could see it lasting more plays than the average Euro. That set up time, though ...

Frank's Zoo was more convenient, and (when played without the points scoring) offered a great introduction to the whole genre of climbing games. I waited around for years until a copy popped up for sale on Amazon, snagged it, and got it to the table with the family. The kids really like it.

The thrift find-of-the-month is the venerable trick-taking game Trumpet, which had a beige box and boring title. It easily outperformed my expectations as a swingy fast-moving card game. We played without the ridiculous "home stretch" catch up rule. Not bad for a Goodwill discovery.

Also-rans

I wouldn't call Lost Legacy a poor game, but it's more of a head-to-head logic puzzle that lacks the novelty of its older cousin Love Letter. Not bad, but I think I prefer my fillers to be more Knizia than Kinai at this stage.

Yardmaster Express comes and goes a lot faster than the train I occasionally get stuck behind on Chandler Blvd. That being said, it fits the "micro" time scale with its simple math and blink-and-you-miss-it strategy. This is an example of a quick opener type of game that has too little interaction to serve as an icebreaker. I can see this doing just fine across a couple of airline trays, however.



Finally, we arrive at Bananagrams, a mass-market game with enough variations in the rulesheet to tell me that the manufacturers are really grasping for a decent game somewhere. The list of superior word games starts at Scrabble and continues. You can do better at a thrift store.

This is probably my favorite filler game. Anyone can be competitive in it, and experienced players don't necessarily have an edge.

So imagine that disorienting pool chemical smell and some chunks of burning plastic got busy one night - nine months later you'd have the birth of this olfactory nightmare.

I can't really explain what made Biblios smell so bad but it was certainly something in the manufacturing that just made me dizzy and uncomfortable. Thankfully over time the smell has gone away but I'll never forget.

I'll never forget.

Bid and auction game. Your actions can impact the end scoring for other players in a matter of seconds. Like it, especially since it does not take too long to play.
