I'm a sucker for Martin Wallace games, so I try to get a heat or two of Automobile in every year. This year, it fell into a great spot in my schedule, so I managed to play in two heats, which worked out well.

In the first heat, I was up against a tough table - Devin Smith, Mike Kaltman, Randy Buehler, and one other player whose name I didn't write down; Devin turned out to be the big shark at my table and made an excellent first turn Durant/3 distributors/set up economy cars opening, while I stumbled and made the mistake of building my mid-size factory earlier than I needed to and thus putting myself behind for a fair bit of the game. I ended up being the only person to take a loan, and slid into third place in the end with Mike Kaltman taking the deserved win. Given that I only get to play this game at WBC, it's a fair result.

In the second heat, it was another tough run - Bruce Hodgins, who runs the Brass tournament, and Rob Seulowitz, last year's winner, vs. me and one other player. A 4 player game was more my style, and let me get into a good position in grabbing early Luxury and playing the hell out of it. Rob and Bruce were fairly convinced I was running away with it, which as you might remember from TtA, is always a bad sign. I ended up taking a loan to buy more cars, and I think that made the difference - we totaled up the final results while Bruce ran off to the washroom and he came back to find himself having won by about $300. He and Rob were both astounded, but even though I was taking in more money from lots of luxury sales, they weren't paying attention to how much higher my costs were, especially after I took the loan. Still, it was a hilarious game, and if I have to lose to anyone, I'm happy to lose to those two. (Which is fortunate, given how good they are.)

I was disappointed with my results, but it turns out a second and a third was good enough to slide into the semis. I was at the table with Jim Savarick, Mike Kaltman, and Greg Ziemba. I had just played a 4er, so I had plenty of ideas on what to do, and managed to pull off a lot of the plays I wanted - I did Devin's opening of Durant/3 distributors/economy; I used Durant on round 2 to place a *second* single economy to double production and sell faster, then put another factory and parts factory in the more advanced one to build fast and cheap later on; and then I ended with Howard to sell off double-production with my late-game luxury cars.

I made one mistake. On the last turn, it was *clear* we were overproduced. By the numbers on the charts, we were fine - but Jim had a chance to double-produce, looked at his tiles, and did something else, and I was sitting on a double-2, so we were headed right into the Great Depression. I was going second in turn order, and I had 1 R&D cube, while Jim (first in order) had none. My choice was either to shut down a factory (netting $60 for avoiding loss cubes) or to take 2 more R&D cubes (guaranteeing I could advertise, as the first advertising costs 2 cubes while the rest cost 1).

I chose to take the cubes. In the end, I didn't need them - Jim still didn't pick any up, so advertising was always going to be available even if I let someone else start it off. And so in the final scoring, I was tied for first with Mike Kaltman - but he had passed earlier in the option round than I had, so he won the tie-break. If I had taken the $60 instead, I'd have edged Mike out and been in the finals. Instead, I ended up overall 6th, as the GM scores second places by total amount earned rather than as a percentage of winner.

Still, I made laurels and didn't have to play the finals to do so. After the Automobile semis, I was in a great mood for the rest of the con.

I don't get to play this much back home. I made the semi finals two years ago. They had 35 players show up in one of the smaller rooms. We did 7 tables of 5. 5 player is brutal if you are the fifth choice. First turn, I got locked out of the mid range cars. I produced one, maybe two luxury cars I think.

I tried some desperate moves toward the end, took loans and of course finished last. The cars advanced all the way to the max 750 slot

The second heat I played in, I was crushing it after two turns, but on turn three I had played it too safe, I had not advanced enough and didn't build enough and let the others back in and came in third. I was more disappointed than the first game for letting it slip through my fingers.

I made the final table of this game once before. It resulted in one of the biggest goofs in any game that I've ever had: in the 2nd round, I mistakenly placed new dealers in the 'economy' section instead of the 'mid-sized' section. After I noticed my mistake, I asked to put them where they should. Two players (including Nick) were OK with it, but the third objected, and that mistake led to me getting crushed for the rest of the game while Nick ended up winning.

I vowed not to make that mistake again ... and I didn't.


Automobile, over El Grande and Power Grid, has become my 'Tuesday at 6 PM' game; the first game after a long lull of competitive gaming. Though most games are 4-player, mine was a 5-player affair that included John Corrado (who I had already played at both Agricola and Egizia) and Randy Bueller (who is just all-around awesome at every game I've seen him play).

Some irony here: in what was something of a teaching game, John warned the others about the hazards of taking a loan. During the game, he would end up taking one ... and was the only one to do so. My own game went surprisingly well; I wasn't entirely surprised that I won (I knew I played solidly), but the margin shocked me: $4,590-$3,690-$3,660-$3,140-$2,690.

I did not play the second heat, but my one win was enough for the SF round ... and a rematch with John! I also drew Jim Savarich (a former member of my gaming club) and Greg Ziemba ... and it appears early on that Greg and Jim are running away with the game, with John and I fighting it out for 3rd. We do well for ourselves late, though; I myself was able to sell over $2,500 worth on the last round. When the scored are finally tallied, it turns out that there's a tie.

A tie between me and John! And as I dropped out in the last round one spot before John (2nd vs 3rd), I end up winning, $4,440-$4,440-$4,210-$4,040.

It's my first semifinal win in two years, and it sets up a rematch in the final with Nick Henning.



I vowed not to make the same mistakes, and I didn't. And after three rounds, thanks to grabbing a key economy spot at an opportune time, I was winning. And I knew it. I even dropped first so I'd have my choice of roles for the last round.

I had six loss cubes to begin the round, but I had already planned to close a factory after my last production, so I chose Howard over Sloan. I don't think there's anything wrong with this move, especially after looking at a 3 and a 2 for my demand tiles.

My first action, I come out setting the pace: I produce my max of 7 mid-sized, 2 luxury, and 9 economy; the latter in what was the most advanced slot taken (though one opponent would later build in one further advanced and produced 4 cars in it).

My second action ... is where I blew it.

At the beginning of the round, there are 19 dealers on the board (with 23 spots available). As Nick would remind me after the game, my safest course of action is to add 3 dealers here and now. It's doubtful that anyone else would follow suit, and I already know that there are at least a few small numbers in play for demand.

Instead, I got it in my head that 'Howard = luxury', and use my 2nd action to produce two more luxury cars.

I did sell all four luxury cars ... but took loss cubes on several others, even after slashing prices. By the time the round was over, I was up to 10 loss cubes for a loss of $400. I lost by $350.

Final scores: $4,290-$4,110-$3,940-$3,880. Nick wins again. (He would win 3 events in total this year. Another one of those three: Vegas Showdown!)

Nope. I didn't make the same mistakes ... I went out and made brand new ones!


I really need to learn from history. Here is a snippet from last year:

Quote:
I probably *should* have won my game of Automobile; I played the first three rounds very well, and took Chrysler for the 4th round. This meant that I could produce last, and (hopefully) gain an advantage when selling at the end. Instead: despite watching the other players produce 27 economy cars, I went ahead with 9 more. I did have the most advanced factories for that class, but I was also last in turn order for executive decisions, meaning most of the cylinders were gone before I could get my share. Worse, the player to my left produced a 2nd time, adding more middle-class cars than I was prepared for.

I took a lot of black cubes that round and ended up losing a close one, $4830-$4650-$4160-$2980.


Nonetheless, I felt I played well. Really well. And I did earn a small plaque for my troubles; the only one I would earn this year. And really, there is NO shame in losing to someone as skilled as Nick.

Still ... I can't help but think of the words of the late, great, Dennis Green:



Nick Henning is who I thought he is, and I let him off the hook.

I was able to play in the second heat of this. The demand was very low, so my conservative game helped me win it by about 700 dollars. I'm generally not that great at this game as I play it so little. But I still love it to death. Great to play again.

Played in the semifinal. Happily, Vien was at my table. This was perhaps the most fun I had playing any game at the convention as we had a nice group. In fact, at one point, someone passed and jokingly asked if we realized we were in a semifinal and not in Vegas. I did something completely insane when it was clear I was losing (built a triple on luxury). I ended up dead last, but did sell all of the 11 luxury cars I made the last two turns. So much fun though.

Free Ship to US

Unless otherwise mentioned, all of my games are gamer copies of games. That means they're put on a shelf and kept safe but they are played. So, there may be whitening of corners on boxes and rulebooks that have been thumbed through. The components themselves are all in very good condition but if you are a collector, these games are probably not be for you. If you want pictures of a particular game, ask. I do not know if inserts are there or not. If you care about inserts, ask the question

My Cousin Vinny


Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid) and his friend are driving home from UCLA to NY via Alabama and are pulled over and arrested by the local police. Ralph thinks it is because he accidentally shoplifted a can of tuna from a convenience store, and is surprised to learn that he has actually been arrested for shooting and killing the clerk at that very same store.

His mom gets family member Vinny Gambini (Joe Pesci) to come represent him. Vinny has no courtroom experience, having only passed the bar six weeks earlier, six years after graduating law school. The judge (Fred Gwynne of the Munsters) is skeptical of Vinny's style and background and Vinny has to worry about that and learning the ends and outs of courtroom work at the same time. His fiancee, Marisa Tomei, is frustrated that she cannot help until finally she can. Tomei won a controversial supporting actress Oscar for this role and she does do a very good job.

The courtroom story is good and the comedy is good as well.
