Actually this was Love Letter: Archer, which appears not to be in the database. I do wish they'd find a different name for this series of games, some of them do sound a bit funny being called 'Love Letter'... It was surprising how familiar I had been with the original, the changed abilities of the cards in this one had me a bit confused...

Still, always a good filler.

EDIT: OK, they HAVE changed the names...

I spent most of this game losing track of what was going on... While it did feel like a good evocative game with strong ties to the series, I feel this series has overdone the bells & whistles on deck building. I get the basic idea, but there's too many extras for my liking.

I think this is the right game, description looks right. A nice, quite simple, area control game.

Character generation was done today. Still sounded the same as it did back in 1979... except nobody dies before the characters are finished!

A 4 player run out with the recommended card deck of gods. It's an interesting game with a nice trade off between getting an engine going and transferring cards to score points (and losing their abilities in the process).

The normal horror of trying to explain how this game actually works! Luckily once it starts it becomes a very intuitive process, but with lots of options. Adam swarmed us with legionnaires and "requisitioned" all our materials, and ran out a comfortable winner.

A 4 player game with three of us being first timers. Adam (game owner) manfully explained the rules and did mention that the end game scoring was a bit tricky to get your head round for your first game. A few rounds into the game, most things were fairly clear and it was a case of trying to develop/maximise whichever in-game engine that you had opted for.

Final scores were Adam (game owner) 159, Adam (the other one) 125, me 117 and Mark 91. Despite my rather indifferent final score, this got a thumbs up and I'd happily play it again.

An incomplete 4 player intro to Harbour. It's an odd game since it takes a lot longer to play than it looks like it should. One day I may manage a full game but won't be too bothered if I don't.
