1. Board Game: Heimlich & Co. [Average Rating:6.45 Overall Rank:1592]

Peter won

Also known As Undercover

This was played as a filler til everyone arrived

One of thr few games that a non player can win

"The game board in Heimlich & Co. is an oval movement track, with points allocated to the various spaces. Seven differently colored "spies" are placed on the board. On a player's turn, he rolls a die, then moves any combination of characters forward that number of spaces. The newly-moved spies then score points based on their new location. However, the trick here is that each player's color isn't known until the end of the game, so players are encouraged to deduce which color belongs to whom.

Heimlich & Co. includes advanced rules which allow players to score more points at the end of the game for correctly guessing everyone's identity. ("Heimlich", by the way, is a German adjective meaning secretly and slyly, so Heimlich & Co. translates as Clandestine and Company"

"The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you, encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 metres. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible!

In Snowdonia players represent work gangs providing labour for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up a mountain side, as well as make and lay the track, construct viaducts and stations. All this in competition with the weather of the Welsh mountains (and the game itself)!

You may be assisted by a train (though that's not always best) and you'll be able to collect essential materials from the Stock Yard. You will obtain special work contracts that give you bonuses."

Pretty standard worker placement game with nothing really new. \still enjoyable . Wellworth playing again but will get more contracts

Colin won Swampi's tie breaker by knowing more Gensis songs

A common filler
