Down 10 places from #29. I'm surprised to see this one fall at all considering how much it has gotten played this past year. Talk about a go-to filler, but perhaps through repetition the shine has worn off a wee bit. Still a great little game.

What did I play this week?

Hardly anything! The weekend was a bust, I couldn't find anyone who had as much free time as I did. *sigh* I only played a couple games on the weekday game night.

Played Biblios with 3 players (new to me). WOW! Whoever said this game was good, was not kidding around. After two plays it really sunk in why people rave about this one. I had to figure out the card range after the first play, but the following plays made sense. I enjoy how you are betting that someone doesn't have that card you were hoping was in the discard pile. We kept playing this one until I had to leave, a bit later than planned.



Played Homesteaders with 4 players, new to me and I was teaching. I find when I teach a game I hadn't really played before, I lose terribly and this was no exception. I had trouble reading some of the buildings and didn't really notice that railroads were rather powerful for end game scoring. That and my money engine stalled out from too many workers. I liked it, but didn't love it because it feels like a static tech tree with minor variety. I am willing to give this another chance. I also need to remember to let all the new players review the buildings before playing, as it helps a lot for planning.

Again now my turn to have a dreadful score for the 2nd play of this fave game of mine in a row. Tony got 3 of the 5 monk attribute majorities, Aimee and I split the rest, Aimee's was very high scoring however, leaving me to be the biggest loser.

SCORES-- Tony 9 WIN/Aimee 5/Kel 2

Another wonderful play of this ingenious game from my 10x2015 list -- one of my worst ever.

I was JUST behind both J and A-M on virtually EVERY monk good/color and I ended up with jack shit while Ana-Maria took 4 of the 5 to win.. and the only two I WAS tied with either of them with.. they had the alphabet card to break the tie in their favor !!

SCORES Kel a BIG FAT ZERO/Juan 5/A-M 12 WIN

Friday:
New game for me.

Played with: Philip, Jacob, and one other

After laying low and saying that I don't think I scored any points, I ended up crushing my opponents. Hehehe.

Another solid filler. I'd still tweak the scoring, either rolling dice to set initial values, or starting them all at higher values. Or something--scoring just feels wrong to me. We played back-to-back games, which really helped. In the first game the two players who were new to it were thrown by the unusual gameplay. Then by the second everyone was lasered-in on the goals & strategies. Lots of titles benefit from immediate replays, though it's difficult with longer games.

In order to order the previous cards, I realised I could do with a fourth deck to take me into free international shipping territory.

I slapped this one together quickly but it came out really good (I thought). The theme is now comic collecting.

Googled for the comic covers I wanted and put them into a template with icons and number fonts stolen from the previous project (I didn't have time to come up with anything too new - was too keen to get "Machi Marvel" printed.

The two big suits are Batman and Spider-Man (yes, I drifted from a purely Marvel theme, I'm not a complete fanboy).

Here you see the Batman suit. Each card has a different comic cover. A mix of "Classic" covers and just art I like.

The Superman suit is mostly cheesy fun covers as you see here. I find Superman a bit cheesy anyway.

This photo shows the cards a little better. The background is different for each suit and is a washed out set of panels from one of the characters issues.

And some comic creators for the cards that let you change the dice. Can you tell who they are? Background is a script/storyboard/sketch.

Here's the other suits. X-Men and some "others" that I've given an I icon for independent, even though many of them aren't. I wanted some of my favourites in there and didn't think too long or hard about what to call the suit. "Others" seemed a bit weak.

The money comes from comic collections, in various states of love.

And three cards left over in the deck of 90 (I think). Two show the card breakdown by suit and "money" - they are useful player aids. The third holds the dice that you need.

Considering I spent about 1% of the time on this that "Machi Marvel" took, I am very happy with the results.
