Heading into the last quarter still hoping to catch up on playing new games and some favorites too. We had a Carcassonne weekend this month and I managed to get a couple of nights to explore some solitaire gaming.

New to the Collection:
Infection: Humanity's Last Gasp
Polis: Fight for the Hegemony
The Walled City

Picked this up from my FLGS and got a chance to try it that afternoon--1 benefit for a solitaire game.

I was a little concerned after playing the bacterial side that the game might be too easy, but appreciative that I could learn the game--and worried I'd played something wrong! But then I tried the bacterial side and I began to really feel how the game's tension will play out. Certainly either side is still fun to play!

This may be one of my favorite VPG releases yet.

On a brief vacation weekend we spent a couple of days in a Carc marathon of sorts where we played almost every Carc game in the collection.

Ark of the Covenant: 1
Hunters & Gatherers: 1
The Discovery: 1
Carc: Wheel of Fortune: 1
Carc: South Seas: 1 (though I would normally put this as its own beast)

This game has been a big hit with my wife even though she's yet to beat me in this game. I do enjoy the high quality cards and bits a lot which also makes it a bit more attractive all around. Plus it's a good little game, though there is not much talking once we start.

Another VPG reprint to while away the hours. This one is a bit more intense than the other couple I've been enjoying.

It had been a while since our last play of this. We managed a couple of quick games this month.

Disaster loomed on the ship this time around with near impossible fires that kept placement from being very effective.

We pulled this out for a couple games this month. This Knizia game is sort of "meh" though overall the artwork and theme are sort of there. It has the feel of Through the Desert and a rather unusual scoring situation that is good for introducing younger people to games of this type.

Managed to get in a couple of the base solo games of this as the month wound down. While the initial game is fine, I tend to prefer using one of the later expansions with the dream sets the most.
