GAMES GOT HIT


Today, the meet up was moved to Mc'Donalds SS15 Drive-thru instead since DC and I were there for an early session. So we figured, why not play here for a change once in a while. However, I left around 7pm while the gaming still continues.

Please add games that you played that day that I'd missed.

So I suggested this game so that I could try the 2p experience. In this 2p game, both draw piles can be seen unusually thinner. I thought the game would end earlier than we expected but it turned out the pace was just right.

With only 2p, the competition for majority tokens can be seen more focused. As you're playing head-to-head, you're more aware of what your opponent is doing.

I had flipped 2/3 of my majority tokens in mid game while DC had only one. When the game almost about to end, DC was lucky enough to have recruited 'Judge' and so he received one more majority token. This didn't change until the end of the game.

DC managed to finish one canal section thus granting him a statue token. He didn't have any end game scoring person while I had one, although this person didn't give me much VP (Extra 2VP for each of your flipped majority token).

DC - 93
Me - 77 (new to the game)


A game by the designer of highly-praised game called Caylus. Willim Attia made a comeback with this steampunk themed game. The components are very minimal (I'm surprised as his previous game,Caylus was big), comes in a small/medium box and comes at a very affordable price point.

DC had played the game once before and so I asked if he could teach me the game. He agreed and off we go.

I like how minimal the pieces are and how quick it could be. The fact that this is playable up to 5 players is a plus for me. In the game, there are tokens valued at 1,2 and 3. Certain cards need these tokens at random values and they're used for a variety of purposes such as value of VP and activation cost. I like this as it ensures no two games/cards are the same everytime. This also added some dynamic to the game as the difference between a token of value 1 and 3 are extremely significant in your decision making.

With only 7 technology cards in the game, I'm somewhat wished they include more than that.

We played the base game with this brand new 2nd expansion. It adds 27 new buildings, one stable and an extra extension board.

The way the setup is, you only choose 4 out of the 27 buildings. You will also need the 4 stables and the 4 special buildings found in the base game. Altogether, you have 8 special buildings to choose from. The rule also suggest, if you're experienced enough, you can play with 12 special buildings.

Game 1 :
Player : DC (61), Yimn (35), Gareth (21)(new to game)

Gareth is new to the game but 21 for the 1st game is consider quite good. =)


Game 2 :
Player : DC (43), Sonia (42), Meng (35), Gareth (30)

Its was a very close game, me and sonia have a 5 point lead in the end due to fulfilling one of gareth occupation card (If you have no negative point, you gain 5 vp.) Gareth play well and hit 30 on his 2nd game.
