Another play of one of my favorite games-- Love the mechanic love games about food !! This was a squeaker, even with Juan utilizing the dragons as much as possible to try to trash the foods I was collecting and me having EIGHT fruits to the KIng's three-- still by some miracle-- I pull out the win !!

J 78
K 85 ( WIN!)
A-M 84 ( Our 2nd game of this in a row where I beat A-M by either one point or one card-- no wonder she loves to play take that games more and more with me and indeed, take my stuff. The next time I play a game with both her AND Ben they will take so much of my stuff I am sure my stuff level with be negative by the end of the game !!!! )

A charming and fast little dice game-- loved it !! Juan was concerned about parsing the rules again but this was no problem really at ALL, the problem to me is I need to familiarize myself much much more with the Dices' makeup I still found it way wack to figure out what's a base and what isn't. I am sure I will get a grip on this issue next time.

I started out way ahead-- I ended up with atrocious rolls so I am just proud that I made up a small amount of ground in rounds 8 and 9 and didn't trail any more than I already did !!

K 53 A-M 61 J 73 WIN

Love love love this-- such a clever design. And yes, once we made it very clear you CAN stop whenever you want and ARE ALLOWED to do so when there are playable dice remaining -- this flowed excellently, and my atrocious rolling luck in Skyline-- well let's say the WORM finally turned .. HA !!

My first non-Yucata IRL playing of this -- I got a lot of what I wanted, but I got far too many animals I had no extra barn for as well. ( FOUR of them for a crippling loss of 8 points) :/ Consensus is that this is indeed a far better game then regular Zooloretto.

A-M 12 WIN ( and she kept pretending at the beginning she had no clue what she was doing-- Mrs. Medina is really a sneaky hustler!!)
K 7 ( 15 before all the penalties :/)
J 10

I had a much better time at this then everyone else-- however the recommendations on the game entry and the concerns of J and A-M are most certainly valid. This is rather chaotic and luck-based with only 3 people or so. The luck with what recipes you get, what cards come out, what you CAN go for-- it's all pretty much a crapshoot and the only DECISIONS you can make indeed are " make the best of what you are presented"-- I don't mind this mechanic as much as most people ( When it's in a " little" card game like this -- I find this mechanic rather depressing when it's applied to a Euro or Worker Placement or some such like all the horror of In the Year of The Dragon ( A wonderful game but lordy, what a downer!))-- also I really have to DESPISE a game on a Quarriors-esque level to not have joy about ANY , and I mean ANY food game.

Doesn't get any closer than this !!!!

A wonderful, obscure little auction game that has the MOST bizarre scoring this side of a Knizia on a bad mushroom trip !! Love love love !!

Even with the heartbreaking horror that I spent 3/4 of this game thinking I had it in the bag with the magic number of of 50. I miscounted ONE little value 1 card. I had exactly the zero-out number of 51. A-M seemed to just be collecting stuff willy-nilly either without concerns on the scoring OR hoping Aunt Mary would marry. ( Say that phrase 10 times fast AND see what spellcheck thinks of it !!) Juan I didn't think had enough big cards to get to that magic number of 50-- I was as wrong about that as my counting. :/ Heartbreaking !! But such a truly unique game, I cannot wait to play again !!

A-M WAY over 51
J 19 ( Exactly 50 !! WIN!!)
K EXACTLY 51 ......... :: sniff, sob::

A wholly charming and wonderful game with splendid flow and artwork !! I also really adore this mechanic of this being uber-light worker placement/action selection on a " board" made of cards-- this perhaps could be the elementary kid-friendly version of Louis XIV.

Perhaps in revenge for my Pickomino win or their less-than-entrhalled reaction to Great Chili Cookoff-- A-M and Juan kept getting set cards MULTIPLE times JUST as I was about to get them myself !! Therefore, I was left out in the cold, Kel as Charlie Brown with a bag full of rocks instead of candy.

Again, another food/sweets game that I adore!! Can't wait to play this a lot !!


J 38 A-M 44 WIN K 25 ( )

A seasonal end to our long evening of gaming. We were all a tad brain dead ( it's one thing to play nine games on a day off.. another to play 9 games after a long " real life" day of work and such !!) -- hence I had to reiterate the rules repeatedly, but wow, what a lot of good me doing so did for MY sake !! I am usually really all on top of this game getting lots of the big numbers for end of game sets -- and then I get my happy christmas ass kicked.

As Juan said in his comment below, our biggest OMG excitement in this game came when on those of us going for the 11 card in the penultimate round -- I got it when J and A-M canceled each other out with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus zeros !!! ( Boy, If I hadn't gotten that I would have been destroyed even more than I was already !!-- Just like people stomping all over each other on Black Friday !!)




J 63 WIN A-M 52 K 43
