1. Board Game: Nations [Average Rating:7.71 Overall Rank:94]

Number of plays: 4
Number of wins: 0
Fun factor: 8
Comment: Nation/civilisation building with emphasis on resource management.
01/09/2014: Five player game with foto finish: 39, 39, 37, 37, 33 points. Came in fourth after playing without any colonies and barely an army. It really sucks to be the last in turn order!
01/31/2014: Another five player game, this time using the B sides of the player mats. Played the Roman, secured two early colonies and focused on stone. Didn't work out, though.
02/19/2014: Once more the Romans in a five player game. Lost big time but don't really know why. Swam in Stones and - later on - food. Deliberately avoided the knowledge track and didn't succeed in building wonders.

Cute little game of building with dice. Not too much influence for each player, appropriate playing time.

Comments: Not a fan of cooperative games, and a complicated one like this isn't going to change this.
Second game we won, but noit thanks to our superior skill; victury was handed to us on a silver platter.

Comment: First Dominion after a long time, and first game of Dark Ages at all. Completely undersetimateds the value of "Mundraub" (theft of food?), lost by a wide margin, and rightfully so.

Comment: Much too static for my tastes. You have to follow a strategy you selected in the beginning, each decision in the game is subordinated to this strategy.
