Volkare Returns Blitz. Volkare takes the City before Sai or I can stop him.

Pre-production filler microgame. Sai and I play while waiting for others and it comes down to the wire.

I continue my unbroken string of last place finishes while Sai and Paul K. dominate in scoring.

Three Advanced Simulations occurred. One had an exploding ship. One netted 22 points. Our final game ... 4 points.

I think we're ready for the real missions.

This was the only game I played that night. It was a full 6P game. Awesome time!

For anyone who doesn't know, this game is the "voting" process of the reality show, Survivor - the board game...or, it can be the last half-hour of the movie Titanic - the board game...or, The Lord of the Flies (in the ocean) - the board game.

Any way you think of it, alliances are formed and shifting and breaking throughout the game. Leave your personal feelings at the door, and pray you still have friends by the end of it. There's a lot of double-think and second-guessing your opponents, which I find fun in the right game. I definitely prefer something like this over Avalon.
