We made our own over-sized draw bag for the tiles. Much quicker game play, set up and take down times. The travel version does come with one.

Traveling home from our sping break trip to New York, we played a bunch of games on the iPad while waiting for the plane. Prominent was the inevitable (at the moment) Star Realms battle, the first game it seemed like my authority went down steadily while my wife's went up! I managed one good shot so she ended below her starting value before the inevitable decline to zero. But I got my revenge in game 2, in which I got a bunch of bases and as she shot one down, I got out another, all the while knocking her down. So we needed a decider and it was the closest of the 3, a couple of fighter taking pot shots at each other, circling and waiting for the opening. But then came that moment where I missed a step and she edged ahead and the knock out blow soon followed, even as she started to gain in strength again.

Still waiting so we switch to the Knizia classic abstract Ingenious. One of my favorite abstracts, so easy to play, but subtleties and different approaches without being too much of a brain burn. Our first game started evenly, but it seemed my wife was getting ahead, she was first to get an Ingenious, but as all Knizia Followers know, it is not your highest but your lowest and late on I scored a couple of Ingeniouses (Ingeniusi?) and just got my lowest up to high enough to get the win.

My wife wanted her revenge and she would get it - I was just not quite in sync for the 2nd game, things were just not lining up while she pushed her colors up with impunity. It ended up being quite a whuppin'.

Back from the trip, there was much catching up and running around to do. Just a couple games of Rat Hot to report, the first a close game, where we seemed to mirror each other throughout. I did get a couple of big areas and I thought that might be the key in end game, but everything else got destroyed and my wife's assorted areas survived enough to hang on by a point.

The other game was notable because of her clever play: I was ahead, then she gave me a couple of points...but they came with a couple of my own color rats and I couldn't cover them up. It was a most sudden and cunning way to lose.

The rest of the week, a big bit of spring cleaning, including the office where the game live. wow It looks quite a bit better and there is even room for some new stuff...

Wonderful wee abstract game. Some of the components were a little fragile but the game itself was very engrossing.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Spotted the pictured edition in an open-air market near Greenwich park in London yesterday. I asked how much, the chap replied "Tenner" and I said it was too much. He asked me to make him an offer so I said "well two or three pounds will be too low for you" and he said "a fiver!".

Now, at this stage I could've haggled more, however, I had our 7-year old son with me and he kept saying "why are you buying that?", "are you going to sell it?" whistle so I just agreed to the £5.00.

Checked it later in the hotel, great condition but turned out to be missing a piece (green/yellow). shake

My fourth copy of this one. I ain't leaving no Knizia behind, no how, no when.

My mum enjoyed this when we played it a few months back, I think I'll see if she wants a copy of her own. Apparently one of the neighbours was very excited when she heard about all these interesting new board games mum had been playing, so it could be the start of an over 70s game night.

Solo Rules: OFFICIAL
Initial Rating: 8
Current Rating: 7.5
Solo Rating: 5.5*
Number of plays: 10+

Comments: An interesting abstract which is quite simple to learn. The solo play in game is to beat your best score, which isn't as interesting as playing against another opponent. The app is quite good and worth picking up, but since my ratings are based on physical plays I have to adjust my rating accordingly. Recommended as a good introductory abstract game with 2+ people. Game is quite boring for solo play only and is only still in my collection because my daughter plays the game with me. I have heard Ingenious: Challenges is quite good, so I may revisit this again if/when I pickup the expansion thumbsdown

The way I've taught it is to put two fingers on the just-laid tile. It makes it easy to see the straight lines away from each side of the new tile. And it keeps people from counting the new tile itself.

Once again, I was scrounging through my local thrift store, not really expecting to find anything. I hadn't really hit anything interesting in a while. I did not notice anything on my first pass through. However, as I passed by the stack of games in the store the second time, this caught my eye from the bottom of the stack near the floor. It has all the pieces, and the board is in fairly good condition.
