First time I'd seen any apart from the original TransAmerica. Stuart led a couple of games of this, seems like he might have a new obsession.

Whereas I started off by introducing some newer people to this. Pleased to see the Reformation expansion is coming, rather enjoyed it when I got to try it a while ago.

The pastel camels were also out. According to Nathan "Miguel and I spent so much time screwing over Jacob (that) Anthony won", LoB gaming in a nutshell.

Not satisfied with merely playing this every week Paul and company were pouring over new cards for this on a tablet while eating dinner.

There were no trains games played at all, merely canals dug by kingdoms controlled by whoever is the biggest landowner, totally different. And if you believe that then please join me for a game of Kakerlaken Poker next week.

That said the poor 18xxers were being looked down on this week by the real intellectual heavyweights, those grappling with this beast of a game. Well your only option is to look down on people when you've miscalculated your fuel load and are soaring past Mars with no rescue in sight.

And moving from intellectual heavyweights to a bunch of Chaos Gods apparently so wimpy they actually managed to let the Old World win. I really want details about how on earth this ended up actually happening.

This made an appearance, apparently so exciting there was an unsold goods controversy. Eurogaming people, always hitting peoples' emotional buttons.

Or for the more sedate John lead several people in the peaceful growing of grapes. Unless there was a wine bottling crisis I somehow missed.

Was called on to give a quick rules explanation for this one before wandering back of to other duties. Always happy to see it getting some play, apparently Mike Q took my usual place in crushing all before him.

Speaking of usual suspects I taught this game. Also helped show how experience is merely learning different ways of screwing up as I crashed and burned in most of the rounds.

To be fair to Stewart here he did have a discussion of nearly a minute in length before eventually deciding to play a Carc variant again.

Hadn't played this in ages so decided to crack out a game. To be honest it reminded me why I haven't played it in ages, distinctly underwhelming though we were only 4 so a less crowded track than it could have been.

Saw this getting packed away, must say when I tried it I thought it essentially failed to do anything special and I'd just be better served by playing Race for the Galaxy again.

The usual weekly confirmation that you're just weird and no one gets your cultural references made it's appearance, or maybe that's just me.

As you might expect in a 4 player game with 3 new players there was some confusion over what was worth what at the start but everyone seemed to enjoy it in the end. And maybe I shouldn't comment on confusion having ended up with only a solitary point left after the end of the second round.

I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this beautiful little filler. I'd also forgotten how bad I am at this, combing my usual devil-may-care Formula De attitude with a complete lack of the usual lucky-gitness.

Seems to have been played at most of the weekday meetups I've been at recently, glad to see it's continuing to wave the flag for the old school LoB fillers.
