The "dicey space game" - or is that the "spacey dice game"? Lauren enjoys it, and I prefer it to Kingsburg. But it can take a while to play, especially with AP-prone people.

I much prefer this to Outpost, despite the poor ruleset, dodgy graphic design and cheap components. This year's economic game, as I'm not taking Power Grid.

If you think I'm playing it with 7, think on! But Agricola now feels a little clunky in comparison.

Somehow I was persuaded to take out Glass Road for this. Just remembered that I rate ED a four. Which is a pretty poor rating for a glass of water. Hopefully someone else will bring Glass Road, so I can still get my Rosenberg fix.

Played x1. As was Glass Road (see below). And I followed up my game of EmDo by selling it. Why give shelf space to a game I've never liked very much?
