First game at our biweekly game meetup. This four player game was tight with the top 3 players finishing within 10 VPs of each other.




Second game of the night was a 5-player game of Istanbul. This is the first time we with a random board setup as everyone had played the game before. This game wasn't close. Wendy has now won her first three games of this, all with a "quick cash/gem dealer" strategy. I managed 4 gems taking a more diversified approach alternating between the gem dealer and the sultan's palace. Interestingly, very few people upgraded their wheelbarrows.




We played two quick games of For Sale before Mark had to take off. This was only my second time playing and I enjoyed it.




The last longer game of the night was Discworld: Ankh-Morpork. It ws Wendy's first time playing it but after a quick introduction off we went. The game didn't last long as Steve quickly won as Crysoprase, quietly accumulating cash while warning people of all the trouble markers on the board. Boy were we sucked in.




My first chance to play this game that I bought several weeks ago. It was also Wendy's first time playing. It was a tight game with Steve and I tying and him winning on remaining gold. I didn't realize the tiebreaker or I wouldn't have foolishly tossed gold away to win a meaningless card in the last bidding round.


Solo Gaming -



This just arrived on Wednesday and I played it solo for the first time on Thursday. What gorgeous cards and clever game. I enjoyed it despite finding myself saying "ugh, a hand of cards all with the same symbol as I have in my path.


Saturday gaming with wife -



After a late start to the day's activities, my wife and I snuck in a couple of quick games of Dominion. She trounced me both times. I hate Gardens.


Sunday gaming with friends - First Sunday gaming with my wife and friends


A quick game of Sushi Go! to start the day while we waited for the fifth and sixth players to arrive. Unfortunately, I was seated right after our local card draft shark and he selected well, leaving me a handful of bad choices. Still fun.



I purchased Citadels a month ago and this was the first chance I'd had to get it to the table. Three of us were new to the game and all of us enjoyed it. It was a great game for the group to get to know each other. My wife really enjoyed it and I'm sure she'll be requesting it in the future.



I also purchased Jamaica a month ago. I bought it because I thought my Little Brother would enjoy it (and he did, especially because he trounced me). It plays to six so we played it. Four were new to the game and those new to it enjoyed it. The other player didn't like the luckfest that it is. I'm not sure I made it halfway around the island but my last card got me some gold to fill my empty coffers and pull me into positive territory.



The six of us finished the night (for my wife and I) playing Grandpa Beck's Cover Your A$$etss, a quick, light card game. My wife kept stealing a pile of my assets but in the end I stole more than I got stolen from and came away with a pretty nice pile of assets...large enough to win.

After a month long drift drought, boom - another Queen Games scoop (my first venture into these threads were a Wallenstein 1st edtion, bought for 3.5$, which we got to play for the first time this week - cracking game).

This time I had go all the way up to 7.50$, but hey, it's a bit of a classic, innit?

This one was a little boring for me when I first played it. So I decided not to get rid of it, but to get the Big Box with all the expansions. Makes sense? No, not really, but I’m going with it.

Played less than 10 times. Box has a dent on the corner. Kept in a smoke-free, pet friendly home.
A balanced tile buying Euro. Buying tiles for exact price is good, but buying the highest scoring tile is more important. Getting walls is good, but makes it harder to build later.
Spiel Des Jahres winner.
This is only the base game.

A tile laying game we traded for after trying it that essentially took the place of Carcassonne when we get the itch for laying some tiles. Neither gets played very often anymore, but both hold a solid place in our collection.

Plays = 30

Alhambra plays within 60-90 with 6 depending if players are familiar with the game. It's a tile laying game similar to carcassonne but everyone has their own city that they are building in front of them. A little heavier with more decisions (4 types of currency involved) but I would still consider it a gateway game.

Plus their are lots of expansions to add if you want.

While the GT mayhem was unfolding, Wayne, Danny, David, Frank & myself embarked on vanilla Alhambra.

Frank started strong and held it all the way thru'. This despite Wayne's massive walls (Frank's were also so good - almost completely enclosing him at one time).

Final scores: Frank 108, David 90, Danny 79, Wayne 68 and Steve 51.

Time for one last game?
