It was time to teach another game to Brandon and his wife. I am not the biggest fan of auction games because I always lose to Charles.

This year it was an end to the losing to Charles trend. I manage to take a huge lead with my first boats with getting the biggest boat bonus. I filled up my last boat up pretty quick and I was afraid that it might cost me, but thanks to Alyson and Brandon, I mange to hold off Charles.

Winner: Me

Kerensa Kempf and the girls were done swimming, so I grabbed Medici next. I wasn't sure if their daughter Gabby was going to join or not, so I figured a 6-player game was safe and I had told Brandon I'd teach him a bunch of older Knizia games one of these days.

Robert caught a huge lead in the first round with the best ship and managed to hold me off by a couple points at the end of the game. I love how Knizia managed to add all kinds of push your luck elements into an auction / math game. Again, everyone is not a fan, but I definitely am.

After the game, we all nabbed some dinner and Alyson was done for the night. Knowing that Friday would be a longish day and I'd wanted to be rested, I said hi to my friends from Omaha that arrived and then called it a night myself.

Amigo German Edition. This is completely playable by English speakers without any modification. Includes English rules.

This auction will close Thursday evening, unless there is active bidding ongoing, in which case I'll close it no later than Friday evening.

Note easier pickup arrangements: I prefer meeting in the Hotel Lobby at 12:30 on Saturday, but will be at the con Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and possibly Friday, and am open to alternative pickup times. I'm also willing to do non-convention pickup in the Mid-Wilshire neighborhood.

Starting Bid: $1
BIN: $30

I still keep coming to game meetups when loopy, even though I don't quite remember when happened...

I do know I played Medici. And won! Apparently it's difficult to get to the top of two commodities in a six-player game, but I pulled it off.

Medici

6.893

This was my first euro so I have some nostalgia attached to it. I had lowered the rating to 8 after not playing it for years but I recently got it to the table again. It is awesome. So streamlined and simple yet such tension and tough decisions. It scales very well but is best with more than 3 players. It usually has very close scores too. The cheering and groaning as players flipped cards to find exactly what they did or did not want was getting a lot of attention from nearby tables at the games night. Everyone had a good time.

Honorable mentions:

Apples to Apples 5.921
My favorite and pure party game. We always play it for fun not to score and we usually play through a lot of the cards in each sitting. Laughter is what it is all about. I have heard people suggest other games that supersede this but it still does the job for me as well as my family and friends.

Scotland Yard 6.410
Only rated 8 at the moment but I haven't played it in a long time. When I play it again it is likely to be boosted to 9 again. Plus I am a pretty harsh rater (average rating 5.45)
Tense exciting game for 2 players.

#5 / My review

Medici might seem like an odd choice for this list. First, the designer is Reiner Knizia, who is often thought of as the designer of themeless Euros. And second, Medici is an auction strategy game. What gives? What places Medici on this list is the raucous good time I’ve had with it every time it has hit the table. What makes Medici such a good time is that there is a lot of player interaction–and not just in the auction. Each turn the player whose turn it is has to put together a lot for auction. This is done by drawing tiles from the bag (or flipping cards, depending on your edition) one by one. A player can stop at one or keep drawing up to a maximum of three. Setting up the lot is almost a press-your-luck minigame as if you draw something that someone else desperately wants, you hope to couple it with junk that they don’t, since each player has limited space on their boats. This keeps all players invested, even if they’re not interested in the lot, as schadenfreude and curiosity fuel the interest. Add on top of this an incredibly clever auction game with the usual interaction auctions brings along, and you have a winning social game. It’s a boon that it’s best at five and six players and still plays in an hour, even with a rules explanation.

Status: has not arrived
Value: This is my favorite game and everything about this edition appears to be an improvement over prior editions. I only wish they used tiles vs. cards, but Vincent Dutrait is quickly becoming a favorite and the quality components that have been promised look superb. Very excited about this!
