This was my favorite new game from Gen Con and I could not wait to get it to the table.

Hey what do you know?
I finally won!
Time to break out the greatly feared (and rarely seen) victory dance.
Hide your eyes kids....

Phil and Anna came a little bit late and they played one of their new acquisitions from Gen Con.
This one really looks interesting.
I love the abstracts, but am just terrible at them.
Hope to get a chance to try it out soon.
Looks very interesting.

Anna: Win
Phil: Loss

Some of the DC Deck building folks move on to this classic Knizia next.
Man, I got play this one again.
Except the scoring always screws me up in this game.
Thankfully, there is a great iOS conversion that does the scoring for you.
Patrick ran away with the victory this time.

Patrick: 8
Julia: 5
Chris: 4

After Phil and Anna finished up The Duke, Neil and Aaron joined them for Love Letter.
I picked up the "collectors edition" of this at Gen Con that has the Japanese art.
Think I really prefer the other art style better.
Either way, it is a great little game.

Aaron: 4
Anna: 3
Phil: 3
Neil: 2

Dave D. brought his new baby with him and although I did not get a chance to play, what they said about the playing time blew my mind.
Less than 3 minutes? Really? How do you do that?

Dave D.: 10
Patrick: 10
(Is there a tie breaker?)
Julia: 9
Chris H.: 9
Neil: 9

Lot's I don't get about this game so I'm really hoping someone jumps in and tells us more about it.

Jeff C. brought this new hotness from Gen Con with him and we took it for a spin.
Frankly, I was a little disappointed.
After all of the hype, I thought it was just "OK".
Nothing really wrong with it, it just did not do much for me.
Seems like if you get a few of the "best" cards early, (i.e. Don't pay for extra buildings, don't pay when you remove your guy, etc.) you can set up a nice little engine and just go along for the ride.

Now to be fair, I did not win (not even close...way in last place)but the whole thing just left me felling "meh".

I pulled my pre-order figuring that if I really wanted to play, there are a few copies in the game group.

Felt like there really should be more cards in the mix to make every game play out differently, since it seems you will be doing pretty much the same thing game after game.
But again, I am no expert.

That's my two coppers.

This was not the game we played, but I did not find an entry for "Viva Java" which was Phil and Anna's other new game from Gen Con.

Was fun enough and in all fairness even though it shows I won, we never got the chance to finish the whole game, so I'm not sure who would have won.

Interesting bits (although the "coffee bean bits) were really slippery and kept shooting out of my fingers.

Add the fact that you can play with up to 8 and this would make a nice addition to someone's game library.

Like to play it again.

Dave K.: Win
Anna
Phil
Denise
Aaron
