I completely forgot to do a list, what with all the snarky emails I'm sending about RSVPs and the like.

Snark snark snark.

Tricky playing this with two others that have played the 2nd edition before and so constantly confused by the rules. Mind you, I was teaching, so they would have been anyway. At least I have an excuse.

Those two were just a warm up for the main event (this is when I started winning).

No one wins here. I'll just get it out the way.

Also: stop fucking going round and trying to steal players who are in the middle of another fucking game so you can set up half the room crowded round one tiny table playing this bullshit.

Still not played this. It's probably for the best, I'd only go and buy it.

Bit of a shaky rules explanation from me which included a panicked rearranging of tiles on the second round as I forgot to mention they should be aligned with each other. Also, scored walls wrong as you don't count the jutting out ones as an extra point (although I think you should as it rewards tricky tile placement that hems you in).

Pretty sure this was played as Jee ducked out of Kingdom Builder to teach it.

Nathan, Bonnie Kate and Pouria played this. I built terribly. I was also distracted as I was looking out for my friend Olga who was coming along for the third time. That may explain my bad playing but it may not. Nathan built efficiently for the win.

Also Pouria's box surgery on this one is very impressive

fun with pastel couloured camels for Olga, Jee, Nathan and I.

Nathan was being too greedy with his enclosed areas so we closed the game down stopping him from completing the area and giving Olga the win.

Jee, Nathan and I played this at the end of the night and were the straglers trying to get it finished off and scored.

Prehaps not the best suggestion for end of the night gaming given that Jee had never played and Nathan and I had only played once before and it was a little while ago so we weren't 100% sure of the rules to start with but we got there (even after some German vs english rules conflicts.)

In this game you are collecting workers, digging permits and island map cards (cards showing one of the twelve islands) from the mainland with your pirate meeple and then going out to use the workers and digging permits to lay claim to some of the 12 islands with your ship meeple.

Laying claim to islands proivides you with treasure (depending on the secret value of the island and also what value digging permit you and the other players secretely allocate to the island). Crucially if you do not lay a claim on the "Golden Island" (one island map card is hidden for the game and this is the Golden Island) then you lose regardless. As a result you are trying to get map cards from the supply or by stealing from your opponents to work out where the Golden island is and make sure you have staked your claim on it.

The deduction elements stressed Jee out a bit but he still secured a stomping victory. The whole game did Nathan's head in and he has vowed never to play it again. I enjoyed it!

Given that chosing it means a guaranteed Nathanless game I intend to bring this along semi-regularly so shout if you are at all interested!
