If Evolution: Climate and Inhabit the Earth made it to this list, I think this should as well, especially given the whole idea of glaciation nuking entire habitats, and species trying to survive despite that.

Interest Level: Medium
# Players: 2-6
Game Length: 120-240 minutes
Weight: 4.03/5

Desc: The large hexagonal tiles are used throughout the game to create an ever-expanding interpretation of earth as it might have appeared a thousand centuries ago. The smaller tundra tiles will be placed atop the larger tiles—converting them into tundra in the process—as the ice age encroaches.
The cylindrical action pawns (or "AP"s) drive the game. Each AP will allow a player to perform the various actions that can be taken, such as speciation, environmental change, migration, or glaciation. After being placed on the action display during the Planning Phase, an AP will trigger that particular action for the owning player during the Execution Phase.
Generally, players will be trying to enhance their own animal’s survivability while simultaneously trying to hinder that of their opponents’—hopefully collecting valuable victory points (or "VP"s) along the way. The various cards will aid in these efforts, giving players useful one-time abilities or an opportunity for recurring VP gains.
Throughout the game, species cubes will be added to, moved about in, and removed from the tiles in play (the "earth"). Element disks will be added to and removed from both animals and earth.
When the game ends, players will conduct a final scoring of each tile—after which the player controlling the animal with the highest VP total wins the game.

My Thoughts: I actually owned this game before and liked it. Unfortunately it became to hard to get people to play it. Occurred to me I might have better success getting 6 players at the con.

Evil lurks here!
mbmbmbmbmb


Dominant Species NEW!
4 player game and I was the birds. Came 2nd, but on the last turn I misread a card that could remove all but one element on a tile. I read all but on species. The insect player used that card to remove my food from a seatile and a wetland tile. 17 points in domination lost. I ended up 15 points behind the insect player. But we never know, because I hurt him somewhat on another card that aloowed me to remove 1 species on each tile I occupied.
I found this to be a good game and it was fun.
And it is always good to beat Ingmar in a euro.whistle

Also marks my 100th play this year.

Son was sick for a bunch of days, but is getting better.

Watched Captain America: Civil War and enjoyed that a lot. My son took both his grandmothers along to a toystore on successive days to pick up the last two Lego Civil War sets on sale now.
If you know nothing about the movie and plan to see it these sets will spoil something, so don't look.
Spoiler (click to reveal)


Read Station Eleven and although I'm not a huge fan of the postapocalyps settings, here it is done in a very good way. The storytelling is really captivating and I devoured the last half yesterday.

I seem to read books with numbers in them lately.
Seveneves(in progress)
Ready player One
Station Eleven

Resuming Seveneves today. Station Eleven was the ninth book I finished this year. This reading has taken it's toll on my gaming.
100 plays this year vs. 161 last year at this time. If you also factor it that over 50 of this years play came from those 4 days I spent at a cabin during Easter, it really shows how little I have played this year. But I don't feel bad about it. I like to read.

Thunder Alley: Crew Chief Expansion didn't fund, but they are relaunching it on Friday with a new much lower funding goal and some changes. Hopefully it will fund this time around.
Jeff also announced that he is looking for solitaire rules for THunder Alley for inclusing in a new Owners expansion coming in 2017. Deadline date for submission of these rules is January 1st 2017. Thinking about trying to design something.

I'm also watching the Snooker World Chanpionship from The Crucible.

I've been struggling to get this out for months now. My normal group dismisses the game pretty much upon seeing the box or after learning about the action planning board. So I decided I'd teach the game to individual players (yeah, not ideal player count) so there would be more experience at the table other than just me.



And it worked! My wife, who was very uninterested in the game prior, was shocked that we'd been playing for 2.5 hours already and said that the game was making a lot more sense after a few rounds. She even forced a large number of my species to go extinct when I wasn't paying attention.

On to converting the next player.

One of the most original themes of all time. The idea of evolving over time to be the most successful species sold me even before finding out how good the game is. I love all the components.
