I think I personally played seven games of Coup last night... I didn't win nearly enough of them, but did at least get a couple of double takes after I let several people Captain from me, but then claimed to be immune (having not switched cards).

We had 11 people for the tournament on Saturday (and 3 more people watching), so I didn't play this last night but there were a few games.

The trouble with FFG games involving space travel are all easily explained by the time dilation effects of relativity. That's why games that are "almost done" take 90 more minutes.

As someone who used to own MoV, I must ask one question -- Where the hell did all those counters come from? My memory is hazy, but you only need a small coffee cup for chits in the old game. Am I remembering wrong?

My quest to get this back to the table finally bore fruit.

And I again wonder ... when I cut back the token score, did I not cut it back far enough?

The new art is meh. Game still the same, but with the old art you could see buildings across the table.

Several of us tried to pressure Tim into buying this.

Amazingly, we couldn't.

One of the most amazing pitches I've heard.

"Liberte?"
"What is it?"
"You play cards and do stuff."
"OK."

Someone an entire generation of ad-men are rolling in their drink-induced comas.

We decided NOT to pull a Rob and introduce New Ben to Innovation with expansions included. I claimed first blood with achievements, but then scoring stalled - I had a close brush with victory through the "If you have 20 lightbulbs" dogma (I had 17), but then the Bens both started scoring like mad and raced for the victory.

It turns out my new-used purchase is short a few rugs, but since we were playing 3 player I was able to correct... Fun little game, simple rules with unique idea... and if you like unique bits this one is hard to beat.
