I thought I was so smart by controlling the inner lines of communication and denying the use of the central location of Munich to all, however, I was outsmarted by both Tim and Troy. Troy won by forcing me to use his railways so that I could claim my bonus (fastest engine) at the end of the game.

I taught these guys how to play the game, but really they schooled me in how to play the game. Daryll won. Lots of fun

This game is hilarious. I was the newb Dwarf and was clearly playing out of my league, finishing in last but having a great time.

First game Sunday morning. Another great game. The game was very close for the first 4 turns and then Tim (the Darklings) ran away with the game scoring 105 to my 76, to the Giants 71 and Auren 61. Everyone really seemed to enjoy this game

Players: Daryll, Gaelin, Randy, Tony and Stan.

I showed everyone except Daryll how to play this game. My intent was to seek vengeance on Daryll who beat me when we played last year by a brilliant last minute move to "whitewash like crazy". We dubbed him the "whitewash King" that year.

My initial strategy was to take the Church but I kept getting kicked out of the Church and the Canals where my base of power was. Tony had a lock on the Senate for most of the Game and Randy had a lock on the Merchant Quarter and Atheneum. Gaelin spent much of the game moving from the Church to the Senate and had some epic battles with Tony in the Senate. Stan spent most of his time lurking in the swamps.

By turn 7 I was not in good shape so I went for the epic hail mary and added the king to my conspiracy (hint: not good for exposure). While it game me great advances in the Merchant Quarter and Canals it also meant I went first on both the 8th and 9th turn and my efforts were easily overcome by all. In the end I finished with (-6) points. Serves me right for teasing Reg last year when he got (-1) point and I told him he was better off not playing.

In the end Daryll won again(ARGGG)lurking in the Canals to become the Out of the Blue Canal King.

There is always next year....

Players:

Jeff (Sauron) against Tim, Reg and Arnold (Heros)

I really enjoyed this game. We started out well as the heros and this game came right down to the wire when we lost. I need to be a little more strategic when I play this game next, but it has alot of very fun variables and the combat system is very fun.

Players:

Arnold, James, Al, Stan, Jeff, Tony and Dan.

This was a very fun and epic game.

Dan: Were the research brains to the game, researching everything possible, but left themselves vulnerable in the end to me. In the end I took some locations from Dan but it was not enough to take him from 2nd place.

Tony: Was Dans neighbor on the left and got off to a great start. He researched small interceptors that had incredibly strong hulls. His downfall was losing 2 times to aliens he should have beat both times (incredibly bad rolling).

Jeff: Started off in a very tough environment between Tony and Stan and almost completely cut off from the rest of the galaxy. A mid-game drive to the centre of the galaxy was the turning point for him and he was the one to take over the centre of the galaxy and win the game.

Stan: For the most part was a xenophobic race that suddenly and rapidly launched themselves through the centre of the galaxy to also attack Dan who was busy researching.

Al: Held his own and created some of the most terrifying dreadnaughts in the galaxy. His empire had one or two warp points so maintaining a good defence was his main strategy. Al enjoyed the game som muchh that immediately after he went to his local game store to purchase the game and all its expansions.

James: My neighbor to the right was worried that I might attack him and made every effort to close space between me and him. Near the end he had a cunning plan to take me over, which I think he could of easily done, but was one turn short of completing his goal.

In the end this was alot of fun and lasted for almost 7 hours.

We decided to only play two laps vice the 3 laps called for in the game.

Stan got off to a great start in this game but lost momentum after the first yellow card.

Tim got some bad luck early and had three of his cars with permanent damage from an early point in the game.

Tony: Tony and I were neck and neck going into the last lap but a bad play by me near the end cost me the game. Tony won. He had one time where all 4 of his cars were in the same lane. Well done.

This game is to hilarious. Jeff was the vaccuum and used his racial advantages flawlessly. The Mobius tubes did not come out all game and so evry ship that went to the warp never came back.

On one of the moves in the game I switched Als ability (human) with my own (dictator) just as he got some excellent cards. Everyone had a good lauch about it but it did not help me much. Lots of fun playing with 6 players

Last game. Very, very early Tuesday morning. This game is so thematic and fun. We had lots of laughs. I finished with twice as many fans as my first game as the dwarves but that was only enough to finish 3rd.

Overall I did not work a game all weekend, but had a great time with alot of good guys
