Trey and I played 3 games of this ingenious little card game. I squeaked out a victory in all three, but just by the skin of my teeth.

Ron Grasped the strategy of this wonderful little game ( about grocery collection -- I love food games !!) much quicker than I ever imagined and handily wept the floor ( aisle) with me. That being.. wait until your opp. declares his set of one grocery item-- then push your luck enough to declare more of that item. Another of my adored obscure little card ditties.

Another in that massive list of games I adore, yet no matter WHAT plan I make , I do horribly. I tie for last with newcomer to the game, Matt.

Astro 176 Ron 108 K and Matt 79

PS: Going with my horrid performance.. 4 rounds in a row where I got to place NOTHING.

Thrilled to finally learn this still-hot game. I for one adore the garish colors in the original !! I was afraid this wasn't going to " click" for me at all as I played a while back the horribly annoying and very similar Uchronia which was not a pleasant experience. ( Tim hollering at me constantly " This is NOT THAT HARD Kel !! Why don't you GET this certainly made matters worse. ) - yet Astro did a splendid job of teaching his and it all came together ( My applying the Eminent Domain analogy between the following and the " thinking" in this game helped significantly. ) --- and voila .. looky there-- I wasn't last

Played three times through this time period -- sadly a page with my Age of Mythology Notes/Power Grid Notes/and the middle playing of this seem to have been lost.

Great Hall Playing : A 9 R 24 K out with least money
Taco Cabana playings : R out both times let money.. T wins once, I win Once

Didn't think would be my dealio.. but a very fun experience!!

What cool miniatures !!

What a clever combo of action selection/quasi-worker placement/plus combat !!

What a nightmare to be doing decent, building my dudes to do the mongo 20 point wonder-- then have Ron FORGET until 2/3 of the game is over that you have to increase your age to the ultimate level to BUILD said wonder-- and I had ignored that action ALL game !

Still a wonderful game !! Again unfort. I have lost my notes to everything we played at Taco Cabana ( I might have thrown it out with my tray of taco debris LOL) -- but I lose by a lot.. IIRC T wins end destroying Ron in last round of combat.

And again the bright two of this nightmare was #1-- Well I don't have it on my interested to play list anymore #2 something else to not give a 7 8 or 9 to.

Trey was the ONLY person to start a successful round of missions and keep them going -- the rest of us were by bad cards and bad dice stuck stuck stuck stuck. Fiddly to an infinite degree, 2,892,123 cards, downtime enough to read War and Peace-- an incredibly horrible ,horrible game.
