Shamefully, I forgot it was International Talk Like a Pirate Day until it was too late to change the theme from Indian Summer.

Oh well, always next year...

Runnaway winner, and for the first time, a game ended by the dustbin method.

Liked it better on second play, but it does seem to be the kind of game where you need everyone to know what theyre doing or it's too easy to have a runnaway leader.

I got this to the table, having just bought my own copy.

We used the New Society cards, but not the Banquet.

It seemed to take longer than the number of new cards added would have suggested and as a consequence, scores were higher than I've ever seen; last was on 91 and first on 154 or so.

The Observatory is now more expensive, but still overpowered, IMO.

Played by Pouria, Simon, Richard, Nigel and... someone else in the corner.

You guys didn't let Pouria win, right?

I got mixed up between the story and the actual game rules when explaining, but thankfully Peter came to my rescue.

Poor Nigel didn't have a clue what was going on, while I did OK but not great. Really like this one - weird balance of not wanting lots of shitty cards but needing SOME to earn tricks and therefore points. In the second game I had all high cards which was fine for not getting the bottle but it meant I never won a trick.

Played two games of my newly acquired copy of Divinare over the course of the evening and still really enjoying it. Feels like I'm getting better at it and learning to have more control though I will admit that's probably trying to justify a sweeping victory in the second game.

One interesting thing I'm certainly going to be looking at though is how much seating order does affect things. You certainly have the ability to screw with the person on your right by what you pass, though it's a quick enough game I wouldn't really care if there was a bit of right-left binding.

Played my second game of this, first one was a long time ago. Not entirely sure what to think as I can't really judge it till I've played a game where I can focus on the cards rather than remembering the rules. Seems a good system but first impressions are that I prefer Race for the Galaxy which fills a similar slot.

The pinnacle of modern board game design. The perfect gaming group. As exquisite an experience as could be hoped for in one hour. So amazing that I burned my copy when I got home so that nothing could sully the perfect memory. Would not have missed playing this for all the tea in India.

I got the big box version for my birthday over a year ago and this was my first play, naturally of Roger's copy. I think it is a perfectly acceptable, fairly quick tile laying game with enough about it to tickle but not tax.

Managed to squeeze a quick game of this in after T2R and before Sun, etc. MikeE's table had just finished playing something so I persuaded them to play this. Mike and I did the teaching, I thought I was doing really well in the first half and then failed miserably in the second half. Good fun, though.

Lloyd mentions playing "Timelines". I'm going to guess he meant this one as it's the only one on the BoardGameGuru website!
