Coz the Axis & Allies man was only 90 minutes late, we played Killer Bunnies to fill the time. None of us had ever played it, but one had already read the rules. After a chaotic rules explenation we started, not knowing where to go. After a few rounds we got the hang of it though.
I ended up with 0 carrots and thus I lost miserably. We had some fun though.
We played using the Green, Orange, Red, Stainless Steel and Twilight White booster.

My GF and I chose to play this version. We'd never played A&A and since we'd heard thisone was easyer and shorter, we opted for thisone.
It took us 3 hours to finish thisone. The Allies barely won. I lost offcourse. In the last turn, in the Axis movement fase I had 1 tank left. I opted to move it out of the area coz there were like 4 tanks and 2 or 3 artillary there. But the 4 fighters that were also there managed to kill my last hope.
We descided that this game has too much luck involved to be called a strategic game. We were both dissapointed. We didn't have a bad time, but we both think there are better games with shorter gameplay, that are more exiting.

Sunday we started off light with this nice filler. Most of us (8 players) hadn't played it before, but we all had a good time.
We played 10 rounds.
I was the Great Dalmuti 2 consecutive turnes, after which I became the Small Dalmuti for 2 consecutive tunres.
The last round I lost miserably, thus ending second in the overall score with 46 points. The biggest loser had only 16 poings, having lost 6 of the 10 games.

While we were playing Dalmuti, 2 players who enjoyed A&A a lot yesterday, started playing a 2 player game of A&A Europe. They were still playing when I left 5 hours later.

After the Great Dalmuti, my GF and I really wanted to play thisone. We'd only played the original once, 3 other had never played either version. After a quick explenation we started playing and everyone got the hang of it quite fast.
I ended up having the longest route (50 trains) but having completed only 3 routes (of which my long one) I ended up second in the end. Some people had 5 small overlaping routes making it easy on them, I only barely finished my 3 routes.
We found the game to be more challenging than the normal in a way, but that might have had to do with the 5 player aspect, we played the original with only 3 players, but the stations can give a lot of relief. I ended up using all of them, some used none.

As usual, during all of this some Magic junks were giving in to their highest need.
