What is a Game Chat League?

A Game Chat League is a weekly discussion-group format for people who love gaming and enjoy talking about games. It is intended to foster depth and familiarity, producing engaging content and worthwhile interaction. Members get to know one another, establish shared interests, and generally develop a friendly and productive environment.

Of necessity, each division of GCL is kept relatively small (typically between 12-16 members, though individual divisions may incline one way or the other). A tight-knit discussion group tends to function more smoothly than a free-for-all. It allows individuals to be heard and understood, and for each participant to keep up and enjoy multiple topics as the week progresses. The format is geeklist-based, and lists are not published to the BGG front page.

Policy: If you're a lurker or have otherwise discovered GCL Gelato, feel free to read along with us and see what the members have to say on everything under the sun. If you have a constructive comment or something else you think would add to the discussion, consider posting it — if it's helpful, respectful, and polite to the discussion group as a whole, as well as to its individual members.

My first list I ever did in this illustrious circle was titled "Time". I will pick up a related topic this week and invite you to talk about the Good ol' Times, that we surely all had. Or still have. Or will have until we push the daisies. We are board gamers, after all!

I'll let Sir Paul set the right mood with a little sad song about yesterday:

Life, the Universe and Everything

Was life better in the old days? I often wonder. Sometimes – especially after watching or reading the news – I have the feeling I’m the last one of a generation who has a fine life in luxury and abundance. When I look at my kids, I’m not so sure about their future. They will face much more hardships and problems than I have had. If I had any at all ...

Do you think that things will improve in the future, regarding quality of life? Or was it better in the ol’ days?

Living in the Past

When I look into the past, there were many interesting times. From the dawn of civilization to today, there are so many epochs, periods and cultures; what if you were able to join one of them? Or course, I’m thinking of that old Star Trek Episode “All Our Yesterdays”, where Mr. Atoz [sic!] offers the population of a dying planet a life in the past of their world, bevor their sun explodes. If you would have to face such a decision, which period would you choose? And why?

Yesterday’s Games

When I look at modern games, I think one of the main differences to the old ones is the game material. Miniatures, meeples, graphic art, rules layout; almost every component has improved, compared to the old classics. But what about game play? Is that really better? Or do the new games just blind us with a shiny new façade that hides their old, worn-out interior?

Game Week

 9   Combat Commander: Europe x5

There wasn't much gaming this week. Andrea and I, we had a game of Martian Rails scheduled, but we were interrupted after the first few turns by the door bell, when our neighbors rang with a bottle of wine in their hands - they wanted to celebrate my birthday, as they weren't in town the last two weeks. So we abandoned that game and have to start it again (as it is part of our Empire Builder Challenge 2015).

Yesterday, Arno - one of my wargame buddies - visited and we decided to play through Combat Commander: Battle Pack #5 – Fall of the West; that's the one with the experimental rules for tanks. We played the first five scenarios; I'm not very impressed by the tank rules. The games itself were fun and chaotic as always, and we both had a great time! Interestingly, when playing CC, I'm not that determined as when playing ASL. I accept bad luck much more easily, as I know, this game's fortune can swing so quickly back to you again! So it's a much more relaxed atmosphere! Arno said he feels the same - probably that's why we enjoy that game so much at the moment. I'm really thinking about uprating it to a 10. Well, we have two more sessions planned, so this might happen!



Other News

They totally blocked every gaming related website at my company. The reason behind that is to prevent the operators at the nightshift from playing online games. Unfortunately, BGG is also one of the victims and is now blocked at work. So I have to bring my tablet PC to check out BGG at my lunch break. This is a little drag, as typing on that little screen-keyboard is not what I'm used to. Oh well, I have to adapt, I guess.

Pulling some dusty ones off the shelves this week.

Gents' Club managed not one but TWO meetings this week! The first edition was a blast, with an afternoon session of Container. Such a brilliant title, and--should you balk at the ridiculous price tag--easy to construct with LEGO. We played with our vintage-aficionado's original set plus expansion. I ended up middle of the pack because I rode the fence too long on strategy, but even losing this game is better than winning most out there.

The GotW though, was Dr. Knizia's golf-course masterpiece, Through the Desert. I lost 98-96 to Kidnomad playing a variant:
- no area control or largest caravan points
- full board
- watering holes flipped over for surprise values

Yesterday at a picnic, he unveiled his latest game design, Dinosaur Fight. His big thing these days is putting stickers to paper, then cutting them out as 'cards.' Yesterday he brought a little etui full of these with him (unbeknownst to me) and introduced the game to Peter, one of my Gents' Club members. The game involved selecting cards from a hand of 3, putting them down on the table, and then comparing values to determine the round's winner. The cards were mostly dinosaurs with numbers, with the added chrome of them being the faux-3D kind in which the image changes as you see it from a different angle--you know, they make a "zeet, zeet" sound when you drag a fingernail across them. But there were also Hello Kitty cards, ladybugs, and more. In round two we were playing two dinosaurs each, and I knew my numbers couldn't hold up. I decided to play a secret weapon: Elsa! I bravely announced that she imposed winter, and that all the dinos were immediately extinct. My son informed me rather matter-of-factly that any such ice age would have to be preceded by a massive meteor hit, or it wouldn't count. Foiled by facts.angry

TtD got a second go-round later in the week as the gents decided to play shorter games. We rang up one of those (which I lost by 7 points), and two rounds of Dr. K's Samurai, which everyone enjoyed very much, despite me winning both games.

Email games of 1989 with Roger and Wendell continue. I reiterate my call for a Cuba Libre reboot. Oh, and I managed this:



No new acquisitions, though I hope to go the rest of 2015 without buying anymore games. Time of Crisis, Comancheria & Churchill are not making that easy.

This past week, these games concluded:
None.

This past week, these games/accessories were acquired:
None.

This week, these games are on my radar:
Space Empires: Replicators
Nautilus Industries
Hostage Negotiator

This past week, these interesting things happened in my games and my life:

1 ---> Solitaire Gaming / Miniatures Painting.

(a) Crossfire Miniatures Painting. I did a bit of research, and German infantry units have black belts, so I have started over with those. I wasn't *too* far along that I can't make them accurate, so I backed up a bit. Still pulling for an end-of-March completion date for these guys. The figures will be done by then for sure, but the basing might take a little while.

(b) Next Steps. After that, I still intend to move on to the Americans. Then terrain. This should get me through April or May easily. Then I will tackle another project . . . which will be either my 6mm American Civil War armies or the BattleLore base game.

2 ---> Family. My son's enjoying preschool very much. He has starts his third week tomorrow, and he is really having fun, from what he tells me. The baby girl is happier than ever, though learning how to manipulate us for what she wants. We will know the sex of the third child shortly, so stay tuned. My wife wishes to avoid the name-picking debacle that plagued us with Baby No. 2, so she has commandeered name-picking duties and already has narrowed down the selection. More on that in a few weeks.

3 ---> On-Going PBEM Game Notes. 1830: The Coalfields continues, with Ron positioning himself well for the future. After Dan wrecked Ron's sweet turn upon turn of profits, Ron promptly bought up Dan's old company and now owns 80% of it. He used to own 90% of it, but had to sell some stock off to keep it in the orange. I could have snapped it up, but doing so would have meant I couldn't open the company I was working on. Reminder to set par lower next time in order to take advantage of these types of things. I dumped my old company on Dan Huffman, but that seems to be what he wanted . . . probably the better move. Pax Porfiriana continues, but no movement this week. Space Empires 4X with a lull this game turn as the sides reassess and regroup. My raiding escapades came to an end when Jacob was finally able to bring my marauding fleet to heel - but not until I had destroyed one colony and sent some reinforcements to stave off a complete collapse of my defensive line. In The Great Invasion I am up to make a move but have been a sinfully slow laggard - Judd updated the Vassal mod, and now I am trying to recapture the game state. The Hunters second week ends tonight and I haven't done my patrols. I'm off to do that as soon as I post this update. Roger's insanely good luck continues as he escaped multiple escort detections with snake eyes. He is once again been propelled to the front of the pack.

4 ---> Atlanta is Ours! All my games are on hold due to my being busy. Turns coming tomorrow, hopefully, but for now, this is a repeat of last week Carsten and I continue our one-turn scenario about Resaca. The Union made another assault against the same Confederate position at another +3, and the assault failed - again. I have one more bite at the apple, but I think we are playing just to figure out by how wide of a margin the CSA wins. The "delta" in the game (an indicator of whether the combat dice are going for or against you) is at +12 CSA right now - a nearly insurmountable run of good luck for the Confederates in such a short scenario. Carsten has positioned his units, well, however - so I am certainly not arguing that he hasn't played a good game! I continue to wait for Scott to finish the attack sequence on my cavalry unit outside Resaca. We are now five weeks waiting on an attack sequence. Patrick and I are well-into Turn 2 of our scenario. Union Corps leader Dodge made a lightening march to the Confederate lines and captured a 25-Point VP objective! Patrick grabbed a string of initiatives, however, and drove Dodge off the position, Routing him. I actually had a good chance of holding the position, but I needed the rolls. The delta in this game is much closer, but still sits at a CSA delta of +3. Not insurmountable by any means. All the really useful units of my army are exhausted, however, which has made this Turn a bit shorter, and this will carry on into Turn 3, as well. We will see if I am able to get a little lucky in what remains of our game.

5 ---> Weather!. 70s tomorrow! It will be the hottest day of the year! The warming weather makes for really great days off - but work heats up when the weather turns nice.

6 ---> Paths of Glory. I picked up my rules for Paths of Glory again and desperately want to give this game a go. But I'm too busy for my current PBEM stuff as it is, so something will have to be retired before I crack this one open. I will have to find a teacher.

7 ---> Normany '44. This game looks really interesting to me, and it's been sitting on my shelf for quite some time. We will see . . . I have never played any of the World War II 'XX games (Ukraine 43, Normandy 44, etc.) . . . but it has received quite a few kudos for design from geeks I respect. So I took a look at the components . . . I like that they are functional, but also stylistic - especially the map.

Edits: None.

Cube Quest x2 - Have owned this for a while and finally taught it to my oldest son. The game is a lot of fun, though the quality of the dice is flimsy at best and the way the mats don't stay flat strongly impacts the playability of a dice-flicking game. Still, it's fun enough that it didn't matter.
Agricola x2 - Played once with Agricola: World Championship Deck – 2011 and once with Agricola: France Deck. We were new with the cards, so I didn't find them all that useful, but I'm not necessarily an expert. With the World Championship deck I didn't play one of the cards and won the game.
Orléans - The theme of the game is so dumb, completely pasted on and overused. I find the whole "bag building" trend also kind of silly. I mean, is it really all that different from deck building? Still, even though the game is very solitary, I had a good time with it. The choices are interesting and the amount of luck is appropriate for the game length. I am surprised that the Kickstarter project for this game was so lucrative, especially when the game is still generally available now.
Alhambra: The Card Game - I enjoy this so much more than the boardgame for the same reason I like Gloria Picktoria more than Union Pacific. It strips away all of the unnecessary elements leaving the juicy core.
Solitaire Frenzy
Strange Conversations - A hilarious communication/acting game designed by one of my friends. It works pretty well, though definitely not one for people not willing to make fools of themselves. You have to communicate both your occupation and also portray a personal quirk without giving it away to everyone (a la Dixit). In one round I was a veterinarian that would make funny faces at people when they weren't looking, which was a lot of fun.

Caution: May contain wargame like substance

This is the week that was:


 7   Crokinole
 5   Tsuro x2
 8   Castles of Mad King Ludwig
 7   TransAmerica
 N/A   The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43

A very quiet week of gaming. It's spring break in our schools, which used to only be one week, but now is two because shutting the schools down for an extra week saves costs... Don't get me started.

On Monday night I taught the gang Castles of Mad King Ludwig and had a massive come from behind kick ass win. We then played Tsuro twice, and I was out first both times. Coincidence? Yes.

I still really like Tsuro. I just like how it's a quick game no matter what.

Transamerica was with my wife and the Kelda, and although I had a solid position going into what was the final hand, I had a terrible round and went sailing straight through the locomotive shack... Oops!

The dice in the Hunters have continued to be stupidly nice to me.

This past week (through date of posting), these games continued:
Pax x2, 1989

This past week, these games concluded:
Thunder Alley.

This past week, these games/accessories were acquired:
Nada!

This week, these games are on my radar:
Nothing new, but while I did cancel the latest Laukat, I did back the new Wings of Glory release.

This past week, these interesting things happened in my games and my life:
I'm in training for my new job (the one that's set for a year). I still don't have a start date or paperwork for the potentially permanent one. More news as and when.

I spent a lot of today baking. I made two batches of bread (Schwarzwälder Landesbrot and honey-oatmeal) and a parsnip cake. Parsnip cake is just like carrot cake except it used parsnips. The recipe was in the spring edition of Edible Vancouver magazine, a free mag. It's delicious. If you like carrot cake, this is like a more grown up version.

skippen's Week(s) that Was/Were:



Face 2 Face Games:
Numenera
Crokinole x2
Kingsport Festival -- just not as fun or streamlined as Kingsburg. I wanted to like it more than I did.
Carcassonne
The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 x2 -- playing in a GCL Gelato "tournament." This time it is going much better. My U-Boat has not imploded.
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
The Battle of Five Armies -- good time, but War of the Ring (First Edition) is the better of the two games, but they both suffer in the same ways with complex cards that have lots of text.
Bruxelles 1893 -- good game with a lot of rules, but comes together fairly quickly. Dry as a bone Euro, but I liked it. I need another play soon before I forget how to play.
Roma x2


PBEM/Web (started):
N/A


PBEM (in progress):
Advanced Squad Leader -- Bread Factory
Roads to Gettysburg
Pax Porfiriana
Great Campaigns of the American Civil War -- playtest of Atlanta is Ours


PBEM (finished):
A Few Acres of Snow
Agricola -- conclusion from this game is that I just don't like it all that much. Too much "stress" and not enough fun. Give me Caverna: The Cave Farmers.


Acquisitions to the Collection:
The Witcher Adventure Game
Glass Road
Dropzone Commander 2 Player Starter Set
Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men
Seven Swords
Deadzone
Colonial Gothic (1st - 3rd Editions)
Hakkaa Päälle!: ASL Module 14

Departures from the Collection
Wild West Exodus -- not a fan of the company's owner at all. Glad for this to be gone.
Kingsport Festival


On the nightstand (currently reading):
Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman, Robert K. Massie


In the life and Times of skippen: Sorry I have been absent for so long. Life has been busy. I have been to Ghengis Con and back. I taught 3 miniature painting clases while there (all went well). I ended up taking 3rd in the Diorama/Vignette category with my Gimli miniature. I am going to ReaperCon at the end of April which was unexpected. The stars aligned and roomates were obtained. And, depsite the list above, I have managed to keep my buying hiatus in effect. All the games I got were either through trades or birthday gifts from last Saturday.

 N/A   Click Clack Lumberjack With my son.
 N/A   Commands & Colors: Ancients Lost to Ingmar. Keep forgetting Evade and Battleback.
 N/A   Crazy Creatures With my son.
 N/A   Gears of War: The Board Game March challenge. Really great game.
 N/A   Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game First time trying this one. A good theme makes this fun. Maybe it's the eurothemes that have made me dislike deckbuilding before.
 N/A   Memoir '44 Finished a pbem overlord game. Started up another one.
 N/A   The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 Survived week 2.
 N/A   Thunder Alley 2-player game on Pullinger's. 4 of 6 events were Restarts. Took the win.
