Super cute "kids" game. I found it pretty hard as an adult .

Maybe I'm just artistically challenged. Sam blew me and Dan out of the water. I'm pretty sure we got Doodle Quest sharked.

Kemet!

I might be biased because I won (and I've been wanting to get this on the table for months), but I thought it was a great session. A little bit long. But it was a 5p game with largely new players and we played to 10 points (the long game) instead of 8 (the short / standard game). I feel like 10 vs 8 points really does change the strategy dynamics in achieving temporary / permanent VPs--and especially the valuation done in buying new ability tiles.

We also played with C3K: Creatures Crossover Cyclades/Kemet. I wish I could add that to my copy, but I don't really want to invest in Cyclades as well to do it. I just wish they would sell the Cyclades miniatures on their own for the C3K expansion!

Who knows, maybe I'll buy it anyway and try to find some alternate minis...

Like other superhero themed games, I am not entirely down with the theme. The semi-cooperative aspect of the game is interesting- some players will make plays that help the group even if it isn't the optimal play for themselves... some won't (heh heh heh).

It was a slow start for me with Wraith, but I skipped a few turns for the bonus card draws and got my gear out. Then things hummed along. Gloomweaver wasn't as bad as we expected, though if we'd been playing advanced rules, Wraith would've struggled).

In the end we found the three relics, and Wraith, Argent Adept, Omnitron-X, and The Scholar were victorious!

Oh, and voodoo pins suck.

I taught Andy how to play. He grasped the strategy easily, rolled well, and his Phoenix Elves defeated my Tundra Orcs.

I had terrible rolls, at one point rolling twelve dice and securing only three hits!

This is one of my Hundred Game Challenge games

Great game, Andy! Welcome to CABS!

3p game with Dan and Sam. I think I like 3p Carthage the best! 2p is probably the most strategic (it is good 2p), but I really like group dynamics in games better. I believe that all 3 of us enjoyed ourselves.

Dan took an early lead, but had some bad breaks in the last two scoring rounds of the game. I was a bit behind everyone until I made some great sales in the last two scoring rounds and ended up taking the lead.

With Tony and Anton. Feld's best, IMO. It looks good, plays in a reasonable time and offers solid strategic decisions. Slightly too much book-keeping but very manageable if everyone at the table helps.

Apologies to Anton for any unclear explanations that led to misplaced Trajan tiles.

I had a boat, I delivered some goods and travelers. Apparently, I suck at this because I came in dead last (it was a long night last place finishes). It was fun.

I liked it even though I came in dead last. I just could never get my money going... too much other interesting stuff to do. This is a game in which you really have to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. Having a plan that lasts more than the current turn is not particularly effective- very much in keeping with the theme of tropical island life.
