Thursday:

We played For Crown & Kingdom twice on Thursday. Last week I had thought that this was a light but fulfilling diversion, but the more we play it the more engrossing it becomes. The movement mechanism means that it is well nigh impossible to plan ahead, but, even so, the right combination of bribe and move is critical. KT won our first game 6-5, but I struck back in the second game, coming back from 5-4 down in the final turn to activate my Duchess where she was and then move her for the victory. This is a game which rewards you when you play it repeatedly with the same person.


Another week, another appearance for Race for the Galaxy and Race for the Galaxy: Alien Artifacts. I went for a diverse route, hoping to set up some kind of production engine, but in the end it simply did not happen. Thankfully KT was having problems getting her own tableau to gel (and I have to say she was feeling a little off her best) and I just about stretched over the line to win 41-36.


In the evening we wanted to play some more, so I looked up the lightest unplayed game in our collection, and, as a result, brought Ingenious to the table. I have to say that it didn't look promising...but two minutes into the first game I realised that I was really enjoying myself. That feeling remained - in fact, it grew - during the next two games as well as we played out a best of three between the two of us. By the third game we were blocking off areas our opponent needed while trying to keep our own scores ticking along. KT won the first game 10-7, then I struck back 9-8. In the final game KT had blocked me off from all the purple tiles, so I placed my final one in a new area of the board and then redrew. Luckily I drew a double-purple which I was able to place as the final move of the game. Our lowest placed cubes were tied 10-10, our next lowest were tied 11-11, so it went to a double tiebreak...which I won 12-11. I really enjoyed this very much indeed, and think I have found another light abstract that KT will play. I doubt that she'll ever play much of the heavier stuff, given that even TZAAR stresses her out, but I'll gladly keep on going with Hive, Qwirkle...and now this!

Happy gaming!

Introduced this to a young aspiring game designer.

quietly, just to our group I made my appreciation of the ambiance be known,
so as to not offend the objectified parties.

2004 brought a back to back win for Knizia with a game that's been a massive hit. Ingenious is an abstract tile-laying game for 1-4 players in which players attempt to create chains of like-colored tiles in order to score points. The genius of the game lies in its scoring system... your score is the color that you have scored the least in at the game's end (i.e. you only score points for full sets of all colors), so players are constantly forced to make what feel to be sub-optimal moves in order to balance their scores. One of the best games to have won the award, easily.

Another game that I haven't played at WBC, but it fits well (for now) and has both a Junior and Senior event.

So, I need to work on the kids so that they are familiar with it before they go.

Tasks:

1. Play a round with the kids to make sure they understand the concepts and rules.

My wife actually started a new job the week I had off so I ended up spending a lot of time home with my 3 year old son. HE LOVES PLAYING GAMES! I think he would sit and play games all day long if I let him. Unfortunately, he doesn't like to play by the rules on all of the games. SO I focused on getting him to play games that I can enforce the rules at least a bit.

Ingenious wasn't the first game we played, but it was early in the week. I think I got a higher score, but we don't focus on that. My older son saw this was on the table when we got home and insisted in getting another game in. It was very close, but I squeaked out a win by one point.

Sat, Apr 2

After Alien Frontiers, we played Ingenious, which a friend left with us for a bit. It was my second play, and the first play for everyone else.

I think it was pretty obvious this was a first play for almost everyone - everyone was trying to cash in on the big groups of colors, rather than trying to curtail them so people couldn't keep getting gobs of points. As such, we almost had people get to the "unlikely event" of someone maxing out all their scores.

I won the game, having gained a bunch of early points in red before it got off from the rest of the board. I then avoided playing red as long as I could, until I had to to get my lowest color going again. And of course, at one point when I was trying to avoid red, my hand of 6 tiles included 3 red-orange pairs and 2 double reds. shake Fortunately I was able to play them in a small, quickly cut-off place to keep the others from getting red points.
