Excited to get this played even if I was missing a tile.

It's fun but feels different to the usual. A lot quicker, lighter and less opportunity to mess other players up. The scoring change also feels weird. I liked it but not as much as I hoped/expected. Review pending.

Played a few times, always fun in a whimsical and cackling kind of way.

Arriving to find my much anticipated game of Risk: Legacy cancelled due to Dan, I grabbed two first timers and an Anthony for a game of this.

My tobacco empire was no match for Anthony's indigo shipping cartel, but the real achievement here was managing to teach a game I barely know how to play myself.

(It turned out that Dimitra and Jason were really attending for Research Purposes, watch out for their malevolent questionnaire questioning presence in future.)

Followed PR with a sort of game of this, Bez's copy newly acquired from Ronan. Bez being Bez, we played a variant which he had invented moments before, despite not having played the standard game, or even read the rules for it.

To my amazement, his variant was actually rather good.

I know, I'm scared too.

Finally, a true test of one's gaming skills. Tournament Rules no less. I snatched the win from birthday girl Eva, and thereby ascended to the l33t tier of gamers.

Pig orgy card 'game' which is completely shit. I only gave it a 2 because I could make some jokes about my conception based on the artwork. Burn it, it might smell like bacon.

First time trying out the expansion! This just moved the game from a slightly better version of 7 wonders to a brilliant strategic experience

And made the game twice as complex
