I think this is a game about shipping? I recall them talking about it, but don't know, sorry.

One of my favorites. Got in 2 quick plays.

Looked like Jon would go 2-0 at Qin, but Steve sneaks the Win.
W - STEVE H
1 - Jon Sh
2 - Eric B
8 - Scott

Game 2:
JON Sh impressively, Jon is 2-1 at Qin...
1 - Scott, so close!
2 - Eric B
5 - Steve H

# is number of pagodas player had left when Steve went out

Sounds very interesting, tho I find the board gaudy and non-sensical.
(I only watched tho, so their opinions may have varied)

A little late night wind-down, dug out my Treehouse set to play this free promo game. Also taught them the original Treehouse rules.

Martian Coasters:
W - SCOTT (Yellow)
L - Jeff O (Black/Green)
L - Steve H (Red)
L - Teddy O (Blue)
Martian Coasters uses actual cardboard coasters w a grid on them. You try to move your Treehouse pieces back to your home tile, stacked correctly. The dice let you both move pieces and manipulate the coasters. Kinda fun for a "roll-n-move" <- says Jeff.


Treehouse:
W - TEDDY O (Blue)
L - Jeff O (Green)
L - Scott (Yellow)
L - Steve H (Red)
Treehouse has everyone stared with their pieces in a certain pattern and the central (black) set laid out in "House" shape. Use the dice to move/manipulate your pieces OR the central pieces and be first to get yours to match the middle to win. Again, quick, silly, light, but fun.
