First play (finally, since I own second edition). Took us four hours.
game ended in second turn of round 10.
Hard one to rate after one play. So it's a 7 now.

Played this deckbuilder before. Has an excellent ipad conversion.
It remains at 8. Perhaps the only downside is that combos take longer and it is harder to keep track of remaining money and fighting strength. Shuffling isn't too bad

Great looking puzzle/routeplanning game. Object is to be higher at the end of your turn than the beginning. If you don't succeed you can' t take further actions. So it has player elimimation. But that isn't too bad.

Too bad it only comes with ten balloons. Used this to determine start player of the final game. I rate it a 7

This was actually a quite entertaining game.scores were way too close though. James had 16, as did I. Mike had 17. It could have been the other way around too but random determination on the scoretrack decided otherwise.
I have no problem with that except that Mike now owns the game. Plays somewhere between 45 minutes and an hour. I rate it a 7. The civilisation cards are great.

No we didn't play this one. Recap of the new ones on day one for me.

Jaipur was game of the day.
Twilight struggle will probably rise but it will be a time investment and I'mnot sure that at the moment I can play this one a lot.
Monkeys on the moon, i owned two copies, so I still have one left. That's a good thing as I think it will appeal to none gamers and casual gamers.
The climbers is a visually appealing game. It won't be a favourite of mine because of the spatial and puzzle aspect. But it will come out. Rules were far easier than i believed them to be.
Bargain hunt was ok. I remember the buzz when this was rereleased.
Travel blog. I'm not sure of the time aspect. I would have preferred somehow if all players would have a personal wheel to plan and place a token when they were done. Probably not so handy as it is now. Still it's a decent geography game

A little bit confusing. Could do with a small player aid. 6 but rating can go either way

I think the first players have an advantage. They can trade good and build a track and put the third player allready at an expense. Some games have rules that cope with this , this doesn't. A 5. Also think its a 30 minute game that takes more than 60 minutes.

Incredible production values but as a game it falls short. With the extra point for production values it is almost a six.

Managed to score 32 points in a 4 player game. Got all the positive ones from 5 to 9. And picked up a negative 3 playing a 2 to prevent it. So I was pretty sure it was mine.

Some strange races, there are obviously race pairings that can be very bad or good for a character. Bidding takes 10 minutes and the 5 races too. So it's a 60 minute game with 4.

I would suggest this to non gamers.

An sdj winner were the core mechanism has been reused in other games for instance abandon ship.

Still it does a good job. Should prove to be a good family game

20 years old. Sort of a gamers can't stop. I probably have played can 't stop more face to face than anyone else. This one adds some strategy to it that can't stop doesn't have ( even if you play with the steal column variant)

I liked it. 7.5
