Blocky Mountains! I finally got to play, and was very pleased. When I first saw this game, I dismissed it as I couldn't see that there would be anything there; I imagined it would be simple and dull. However, I find it to be a Bauza-like co-op where you think you have it all under control before the game crushes you. A compelling game.

Fresh Fish. We mostly learned the rules last week as things wrapped up, and were very excited to finally play. It's unexpected to say about a game from 1997, but this was a refreshing game. So many of the newer titles I play are "Fine"; my more than one word review is "It's OK; maybe I would like it if it was one of the first things I played, but at this point I get nothing out of it." In the back of my mind, I wonder if I just don't like things - but then I play something like this and I realize that games can still feel unique and make me connect new neurons.

I was happy just to come in second. Some neat mechanics. I like games where doing things to help me, means doing more to help you. This was our first play, and I'm definitely interested in playing again. It is not clear to me at all what the main strategies or counter-strategies are. Another refreshing gem.
