This GeekList is one in a series of GeekLists that document the games that get played at the Berkeley Board Gamers Weekly Board Game Days, held almost every Thursday at Eudomonia, in Berkeley, CA.

Lots of folks and lots of games. Please add any games I may have missed.

Feel free to comment with your thoughts on any game, even if you weren't there or didn't play it. Let us know if you like it, hate it, or are interested playing it in the future, etc.

I'm starting a thumb drive here...

My first 3 player game of this. The smash the leader aspect of this is a bit more focused in a lower player count.

The turning point, as I recall, was a turn about half way through, when both blight and catastrophe came out at once. Chris worked his way up to first and took catastrophe and I used blight... In the long term, I believe blight is more damaging than catastrophe. So the Dominant Species lesson of the day is this: When you take your abundance action, make sure to place your elements strategically so blight can't hurt you too badly.

We played Chapter 1 with 4p. Nice dungeon crawler if you like that sort of thing. A lot of dice rolling, a good story being told, this is the game Castle Ravenloft should have been. I apologize for any rules issues, I think we got most of them right.
