After that was a 3 player game of German Railways. First time I've played this one and I really liked it. I definitely want to give it a shot again now that I understand it better.

Andrew 2 won, I was second, and Andrew 3 was third.

To break from the Train theme the board game version of one of my favorite video games showed up yesterday so I had to try running through the tutorial at least. It was fun but a little stressful and I want to give it a shot with more players next time. I ended up winning but I suspect part of that is me messing up on a few rules.

We played this one thursday night a learning game. Tony was able to take the win. I really enjoyed it. I played again on Saturday night at Walter's and I was able to win that one in a military rush sort of strategy. It really feels a lot like race but the dice are just so much cooler to me.

Played this Tuesday with Tony and Alex. My first time playing it. Can be quite good; the set-collection's interesting, and the ability to steal others' sets in particular means makes for interesting decisions. I believe Tony won.

Played this Friday with Andrew (A3), Tony, and Andrew's friend Mark. Unfortunately, newbies A3 and Mark wound up matched against us, but they still did quite well; it was a close game. Our Loyalists wound up taking it in the end, though, and I won an individual victory.

Played Friday with Andrew (A3) and Tony. It's my game, but was my first time actually playing it. Had a lot of fun with this; there are Dominion similarities in cards each having their own power, but it's not deck-building, more about picking the right card (or era of time) to activate at the right moment, and deciding whether to use your hand cards for coins/effects or for scoring. Lots of variability possible, too; there are 40 age cards, but you only use 10 for each game. I believe A3 won in the end.

It started off in the Pudding district by some careless baker, it's said to have consumed thousands of homes leaving many with noting with only a few reported deaths it's said as a non fact as many of the poor were undocumented and the fact the the heat was so intense that the remains were just ashes.
The wild card
Nickel
and myself
took on this horrific incident trying to change history and save London.
It was obvious the direction we attempted to direct the fire trying to contain it, but at no avail. It seemed too late for demolitions although several of us tried.

When the days passed and the fire subsided there stands a true hero among the helpless.

Saving all three of his districts
Nickel 1st
I ended up a close second by I think 4 points
The wild card wasn't so lucky as the angry homeless residents took him and hung him to never see his lifeless body again.

Soon the rebuilding will begin stay tuned for London the rebirth of a nation shake

I gave Bill my competitive Marvel Deck and I tried out a random mix of Yu-gi-oh cards. I was doing okay until Bill was able to get out Hulk Green Goliath and Johnny Storm. Then he just crushed me.

Bill and I finished the night with Mars Attacks. He painted up the terrain and it looks pretty sweet. I was the Martians and he was the humans. I was able to catch two civilians and do enough damage to win.

Finally had the opportunity to play a FTF game in a long time.

GameQore was the scene of this uncompleted (at this time) battle between the Russians and the Germans...

Victory is based on whether the Russians can capture a building (the one they are in suffices) AND get at least 3 counters to the other edge of the board...

I think I'll run out of time...

The straight dark line in green is a Railroad line.

Crazy game for many players that Grant, Walter and I threw on the table at 11pm after game night.


I think Walter won again by one point...

Late posting this, but played this Friday with Brian and Jeremy, so still in February. Jeremy and I were playing for the first time. The art is as impressive as they say. Interesting game; lots of decisions to make between when to explore, when to grab cards, when to buy lords and when to turn them in for locations. Brian won.

Played with Brian and Jeremy Friday. We had an interesting mix of cards; Jeremy and I used Tourist Trains to get lots of points, Brian took advantage of Viaducts to cheaply build into contested cities, and Mail Trains and Freight Trains helped us all deal with the large amounts of waste collected. Brian and I tied on points; he won thanks to having more track laid. Really enjoy this game, and it seems to go quite differently each time depending on cards picked/map/opponents' strategies.
