Monday I played some Tower War with my daughter. We used the advanced drafting rules for a good, close game.



The tower was leaning treacherously, and we were just about to start our sixth battle when she knocked the table and the tower went down.

Afterwards, we had a good game of Kamisado, which she won as usual. I started out strong, winning the first two rounds, but then I never scored another point.



We had a couple of fine games of Summoner Wars, on Tuesday and Sunday. Tuesday's game featured my deck "Transcendent Sera," where her champions were the Archangel, Coleen Brighton, and Father Benjamin, and her principal commons were Priests, Warrior Angels, and Cherubim. In the opposing "Jexik's Edge," champs were Doc, Hawk, and Malevolence, with Slashers, Tinkerers, and Stone Golems as the commons. Sera got the Archangel out early, and he gave Jexik direct trouble. Later, some Slashers managed to hassle Sera. In the end, while champs struggled for the center of the board, it was a series of one-hit Cherubim that spelled a loss for Jexik.



On Sunday, I played "Rallul's Sorting Hat" with Mundol, Etch, and Magos for champs, while non-starting commons were Owl Familiar x1, Time Mage x3, Apprentice Mage x6, and Rune Mage x4. Play was hugely successful; won with a card to spare in the draw pile. Jexik's Edge again failed to get Malevolence into play!

Thursday was the "So Hideous a Chain" Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game meetup, where I lost two games. The first was with my Explorer deck Blurry Horizon. The second was our first three-handed game with Cenacle rules. These didn't seem to satisfy as promised, and we might actually revert to the FFG rules for multiplayer.

Friday we played Arena: Roma II, which was brutally quick. I went on the attack at the start and never let up, so that the game ended in under 20 minutes with a score of 9 to 0.

I also played a game of Onirim on Friday, with the Glyphs and The Book of Steps Lost and Found. The deck gave me absolutely everything I wanted. I won with 15 cards left in the draw deck.



Saturday I played a couple of solitaire games of Rune Age, finally getting the Orcs to a win against the Cataclysm scenario.



At lunch we played a good game of Hive.

Saturday afternoon was a game of Concordia on the Italia map. My daughter was doing great in the early game, but later got hobbled by a sugar crash, thanks to her after-lunch candy consumption. I bought Smith and Mason with my first Senator play (turn 2 or 3, as I recall), and I stayed focused on Tool cities throughout the game. I scored big on Jupiter, Saturn, and Minerva, and I went out by buying the final personality card, with only one house unbuilt.

A nice two plæayer, that I sadly don't get top play too often (I need to visit one of my friends; he loves this game!)... But this time I played with nenepyga who luckily also enjoys this!

She really got the hang of it and beat me well! 15-21; I started out luckily with two Forums, of which I got to use one already on my first turn; she then gets her turn, and uses her powerful forum-smashing card, removing all my forums - leaving me with four holes in my row (you loose 1 VP per "hole" before your turn starts), making me bleed points early in the game. I did manage to get some points (a net of 5 VP as you start with 10 VP), but she had her two inns that made my guys drink and give her points well as some she got points for another card that gives her three points if she had more characters than me...

This one has fans and seems to get to table fairly frequently. I only had one ever run at it myself, and didn't take to it. You can find my report on that in one of my old Gaelcon geeklists. But it seems my experience was very peculiar - of a game that dragged on in stalemate most of the way and bored us both. Others that play this swear by its quick pleasures. Okay.

Only one out of the dust game this month. Last month I had none. I'm not sure what that's all about.

Arena: Roma II (last played July 2013) - There were two of us. I saw this on the shelf. I suggested it. We played it.

I played Arena three times this month, and I think I like it best of all the Feld games I've played so far -- although it is in a class apart from them by virtue of being 2-player only. It's possible to come back from severe punishment, and the decision-making is excitingly complex. It reminds me strangely of Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game, in that it is a tactical game with what is effectively a single spatial dimension.


Onirim was new to me this month, and saw 18 plays, tapping only the base game and two of the seven expansions. I acquired it for solitaire play, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the 2-player co-op version very enjoyable. I like the art, and the theme (lightly-applied as it may be).


I only got in a single 2-player session of Citadels, so I know I haven't gotten the full experience at all, but it was still fun. I played with my daughter and she was quite devious, even though I managed to win. I mostly stayed away from the Assassin and Thief, although I tried each once.

Four plays of Onirim over the course of the week included my first two-player go at The Book of Steps Lost and Found (we lost, only getting to 6), my first win at The Book of Steps Lost and Found, and my first play of The Glyphs.



Tuesday evening, we played a couple of games of IceSickle, and I took some pictures to show what the game looks like when played with the current Treehouse set:



We also played a game of GUBs, where I actually lost. (I don't understand my own usual invincibility at this highly luck-dependent game.)



On Wednesday, we played the card challenge from Ingenious Challenges. My daughter beat me in two out of three hands.



Thursday was our first go at a Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game meetup at a local game shop. But it turned out to be just me and my usual opponent. We had some good games anyhow. His Revenge of the Yith deck beat my Marked for Trouble twice: first very narrowly, and then again much less so. I beat his Mother Knows Best with both Ways of the Khabs and Expedition to Irem. Here I am, dressed for the occasion:



While I was at the game shop, I picked up a copy of Arena: Roma II. I tried it out with my daughter on Saturday and liked it a lot. I think I might like it better than The Castles of Burgundy or Trajan, though it is admittedly a briefer, more compact game than either of them. Despite being shorter and less materially involved than Castles, there are actually more decisions to make on each turn, and I think it picks up its classical theming more charmingly than Trajan. Of course, it's in a different category than those 2-to-4-player Feld creations, simply by virtue of being two-player-only.



I also visited Br. Goat for another game of Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game on Saturday. It was our first play with Tom Capor's fan-made story deck. Goat's Outer Shell had my Black-Market Bookworms on the ropes for the whole game. It was a slow, torturing sweep.

Sunday was the year's first play of Concordia! My daughter and I each improved on our previous game by 20 points. She had the advantage in more of the gods' columns than I did, but my 50 points in Saturn and my three fine Minerva cards (including maxxed-out Weavers and staunch Masons) got me to 152 points and the win.

I'm yellow:
