I sold this to get cash for something or other. Couldn't bear being without it. Bought it again in a GMT fall sale. I don't know if it's been played since then, but I want to have it if the opportunity comes up!

One of my games that I own and have never played.

I wanted to get a game of this, so I put out my copy with a green flag seeking other players and a red flag seeking someone to teach it.
Almost immediately I had 3 other players who were also interested in learning and a kind soul who was happy to get us started, although he did not want to play himself).
The explanations were good, so we proceeded without major incident.

A fun worker placement style game, trying to steer your animal class to supremacy as the net ice age closes in.

There is a big slab of scoring at the end, so the Birds (who had been last) swarmed forward and almost won against the Mammals who had been leading for a while.

I enjoyed the game. It is not quick, but it seemed to move at good pace, even with 4 players.

Sunday. 4p. 3rd? First time played.

This also might be my favourite game of the con. Certainly the longest play, at 4h20m or so. Engaging for the entire time, though. I was so impressed when I managed to wipe out everyone else from "my" corner of the world with a well placed blight. Of course next turn all my amphibians were rounded up into one hex and destroyed with a combo mass exodus and catastrophe. One cube left on the board. But I was so far from out of options because this is an amazing game. If I'd not kept mixing up the order of wanderlust and speciation I reckon I could've managed a solid 2nd place.

A few years back when I got back into boardgames, this was the game caught my eye, the dream game that would be perfect for me. I've finally played it and it lived up to expectations.

Played with Stephanie and Sebastian and another guy who taught us all the game. Very very much a brain burner. The rules aren't too complex, but keeping everything straight and remembering how to adjust the board after each move isn't simple, either. We played for a long time but had to cut it short to go to the closing ceremonies (which I think disappointed the guy teaching).

We kicked off TABSCon June (our quarterly all-day Con here in Toronto) with 6P Dominant Species. 5 of us played a 5P game at BreakOutCon (the March 3-day version of TABS) and one brought a friend who had played a while ago.

(Pics on Twitter if you want to see them, so they don't clog here)

Insects got a bit of an early lead, then Amphibians, then my Birds for a while, with particularly devastating

- Disease (4th domination that people weren't taking seriously, but my Birds were down to my original 2...)
Before & After:
https://twitter.com/jmaltman/status/744169660816429058


- Catastrophe (by Insects),
https://twitter.com/jmaltman/status/744174097379254272

- and Blight along the way.

Final score?
https://twitter.com/jmaltman/status/744200283216027648
88 Amphibians (won tiebreaker on Food Chain)
88 Arachnids
84 my Birds
80 Insects
78 Mammals
49 Reptiles (but no pity, he won as the Arachnids last time).

Best part of it all? Including setup and a break to check out the Bring n Buy auction? 3 hours and 5 minutes. meeple Just in time for the math trade (where I swapped out Nations: The Dice Game for Signorie).

We're planning to make it our kick off game every time. If we can always finish by lunch?

I'm not sure this belongs in this list, but I am so excited about this game that I want to add our play from yesterday. We played Dominant Species with 4, but co-op: 1 couple vs. another couple. So in that sense, it is a bit of a couples' game :-)
I had never played this game co-op before (because generally, I don't like co-op, and even after this game, I still don't), but one of the other players suggested it. In this co-op, each player controls 1 animal, and each couple plays 'together'. Worst score of the two counts at game end. So in general you do not take actions that hurt your partner more than the opposing team. I played the reptiles, my BF played the spiders, and the other couple controled the birds and the insects. Things quickly turned sour for the spiders, some bad luck with domination cards that wiped them almost completely, he was last on the score track almost the entire game. I with the reptiles had a very comfortable leading position throughout the game. It wasn't until the last turn that the spiders made a really nice comeback, so nice that in the end I ended first, my BF second (whopping out some very impressive end scoring that put him back in the head of the race) and so we won our very first co-op experience of this beast. Game took us 6 hours.
This is still my all-time favourite game, but I don't like co-op because, well, I want to go my own way, make my own mistakes, and I can't stand it when someone else is telling me what I should or shouldn't do on my turn. In co-op you can sometimes (certainly not always!) see that one player is controlling the entire game and calling the shots for other players. Luckily, my partner knows my feelings about co-op :-) We did of course consult eachother when making tough decisions and helped each other out choosing the actions (so sometimes I took an action that didn't help me at all, but helped my partner a lot, so that he could save an action pawn for another action he desperately needed), so it all went over smoothly. So it was an OK co-op experience, but I still prefer this the regular way.
