Coal Baron is a really great game. I can still see myself playing Asara though as it is slightly more simple and therefore I can probably teach it to a wider audience.

After playing Hamsterbacke on Saturday, I taught my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousin, Ingenious. I didn't log it since it was them 3 and my mom that played but I did sit there clarifying some scoring questions. It was a peaceful game, and somehow my cousin ended up winning by managing to get 18 on all colors! Insane, In...genius

In other news, I am receiving Lost Cities this week from a math trade and I took the plunge and ordered The Palaces of Carrara from Amazon.de

The semester begins once again, hopefully I still get to play some games. Thanks for reading, and have a great week meeple

Next was Ingenious. I saw the Fantasy Flight logo and walked briskly to grab the game. Turns out it's another Knizia with a good rating. The box is pretty worn and dinged up around the sides, but it's complete. $3.99

I played Ingenious in one of the early heats. I play this game 2p on my phone all the time, but have never really played it with four players. I got a bit nervous when a couple of the other players jumped out to huge leads in one or two colors, while I played a more conservative game. In the end, the winner had 18 on every color but one, on which he had 12. I knew my lowest would also be 12, but I could not stop him since both of the spaces each of us needed was open. I needed to both block, and increase my lowest score, which was impossible. I lost the tie break. Very fun game.

A nice filler after Queen's Gambit, and I tell people, this is more an area-control wargame than it is a Euro. You're really trying to block people from scoring colors, instead of making huge amounts of points yourself.

My table in this game definitely embraced this philosophy. We were blocking each other all over the place, making the game very tight at the end. I could have the last turn at the end to win, but the player before me (correctly) decided to block me out of the last move, taking me out of the game.

Another Himalayan country: Nepal.

I like it because of the unusual shape and the simple iconography (important in board game graphic disign!).

Looking up about it, I see that it only became "simple" in 1962. Before that, the two symbols had faces.



Pretty cool!

There are a bunch of interpretations, but there are two pennants because it symbolizes the unification of two ruling families of the country way back when. There are also bunch of dichotomies: sun and moon, king and prime minister, peace (blue) and victory (red), Hinduism and Buddhism.

I'll also note that one of BGG's weirdest posters claims to be Nepalese probably because the flag looks weird. If you aren't familiar with his stuff I dare you to check it out. He just "returned" to the "Chit Chat" forum to great fanfare.

I chose "Ingenious" because it has similar iconography to the Nepalese flag. I generally prefer some theme to my games, but I make an exception with this one for some reason. A beautiful game.

My question:

In board game graphic design, do you prefer the function (creating ease of game play) to be more important than form (nice art) or vice versa? I am in the first camp.
