Dust level = just shy of 5 years.

Quite a gap between my first and second plays. Want to get a third play in soon.

Economic game where tactics and strategy blend together in a super-tight package. The game is calculation heavy to be sure, but we don't mind engaging in meaningful calculations. Those kind are even welcome. The gamers in my group all like this game and for one it is his favorite. Whenever we have five players, he invariably asks for it. Gotta keep the gamers you game with happy, no?

Economic delight. Enough chaos to eliminate it from being a pure numbers game. Knowing when to shut down your factories and entering new markets makes this a fun experience every time.

Powers:Coleridge:Milton: Faith...must be, if anything, a clear-eyed recognition of the patterns and tendencies, to be found in every piece of the world's fabric, which are the lineaments of God.

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

I've a delusional fantasy in which Martin Wallace and John Bohrer never fell out; and Bohrer transcended his personal only-train-games constraint (yeah; I said I was delusional) and trained his developer's talents on Automobile before it was released.

That might have resulted in the best game ever. Oh, well.

The version I have is still one which has provided a great deal of entertainment over the years. My Wednesday gang loves it; my nephews find it particularly cool: I've really enjoyed it, flaws or no.

I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.

The first time I played this at a con, we somehow missed the rule that when you close down a factory, you also halve the number of loss points you have.
This caused really bad losses in the end of round phase, and caused a mad grab for Chrysler and Sloane. After the game, we checked the rules and figured out what we did wrong.

...

Some months later, one of the guys which played with me during that game bought the game for himself. We played with some other people, and yet we managed to miss the exact same rule again.

By far the densest game on this list, we found learning the rules to be exhausting and then the game itself was long. My husband saved this game from elimination, so we'll give it another go.

Red7xa few: Liking this game the more I play it. Definitely play this with the optional card abilities, as it really adds a lot and takes some of the teeth out of the 7 cards. Played with points for the first time and took second.

El Grande: Five player game, three were new. I think I spent too much time in the last third of the game jockeying for position and that cost me points. Finished in second.

Suburbia: One new player. She did fairly well and didn't run out of money 2/3 of the through like some newbies do. I won this pretty handily by taking two of the three public goals (least money, lowest rep) and my personal (most borders, one of the best goals).

A Study in Emerald: I WON! AS A RESTORATIONIST! HOLY CRAP! This was a four player game that was quite tense. Abbie tipped her hand as a Loyalist fairly early on (which was nice, because she took Sherlock Holmes and I had the double agent counter for him) and Trey started pushing the war track. I had to work had to keep pace on the revolution track. Grabbing Bismarck was great because I got to lock up St. Petersburg and its six points. The other Restorationist is kind of maddening to play with because he always takes forever to get points. Ultimately, having two Diogenes Clubs and a Freemasons was super helpful in cycling through the deck. I killed Gloriana to edge ahead in score and drew a third mad tile to end the game.

Here I Stand: This was a five player game. Three were new, so myself and the other experienced player took the religious powers. I had the Protestants and also took control of England as a result. I got off to a great start with the Reformation and started rolling up points. France, meanwhile, was determined not to tick anyone off. She was having a lot of success in exploration. She even managed to pull off circumnavigation and all of a sudden was a huge threat to win. The Haps, Ottomans, and Papacy all teamed up against her. Seeing them do it, I stayed out of that. The Protestants reached the victory threshold, but the Haps took some electorates away. Meanwhile, England's quest for a male heir ended in success, which is so incredibly important for England. With Edward born, I could focus on the Reformation in England as well as a short, successful war against Genoa. With everyone's attention focused elsewhere, England quietly slipped in to victory. I have yet to try France or the Haps, and I'd like to do so. Also wouldn't mind trying the Ottomans again now that I have a better idea how to play.

Automobile: This was my first play, and it was hard to assess because Abbie completely screwed me over on the first first turn and it made me very unhappy. Seems like it could be good and she liked it a lot.

Glass Road: Boring, uninspired, lifeless, uninteresting. I played this purely to make others happy and it's a mistake I'll not repeat again.

Kanban: Automotive Revolution: This is more like it. Very close game that came down to the end. In the final round, someone in assembly pushed out a red car, which was great because I was in management with a red design and three previous red upgrades. 21 points for me! That also triggered a third meeting that would not have happened otherwise, though I'm not sure if that benefited me. Either way, I won.
