6. Board Game: Caudillo [Average Rating:6.00 Unranked]
Board Game: Caudillo
STRATEGY GAME

Download Print-n-Play.

From Brian Train on 23 Jan 2019:

"Several times over the past few years I have mentioned Caudillo (pronounced “caw-DEE-yo“), a 2-5 player card game I designed three years ago on power politics in the fictional Latin American country of Virtualia, after the departure from power of its strongman leader Jesus Shaves (pronounced “hay-sus sha-bezz“)."

"The game was of course about a thinly-disguised post-Chavez Venezuela (though in 2013 it wasn’t post-Chavez yet), and just to drive it home, its original title was Dios o Federacion, a takeoff on “Dios y Federacion”, the national motto of Venezuela."

Today was release day. Went to Target because it showed as available. Searched shelves but could not find it. Not even a spot for it. Asked staff who checked stock number then said, “Oh, they’re still in the back. Want me to get one for you?”

New edition. A monster game?

I love that this is a Chit-Pull System wargame but am not sure if I can ever really get an 8+ hour game to the table.

A “classic” Hexagon Grid wargame but with oversized chits for us grognards. A monster topic that can be played in an afternoon.

Board Game: Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis, 1860-61
STRATEGY GAME

iOS version.

This is another “cubes-as-influence” CDG.

Read Rulebook online and played tutorial. Interface is decent; occasional bad moves more my fumble-fingers than poor design. Some complain of slow AI. I don’t notice as I am still slow taking in board state.

Will have to wait until end of our Scythe: The Rise of Fenris campaign to get to the table but once it does the addition of new rules & alternate approaches to play should keep Scythe epic for many plays to come.

Board Game: BattleTech: Beginner Box
WARGAME

Technically this RMN Jr’s game. He bought it with his own money. As in he paid cash...not Dad buying it & he pays me back.

2018 Fifth Edition. Much less in the box than my 2011 Third Edition. Between the two of them he should have a decent mech collection. Am a bit surprised 5e only has the QuickStart rules.
