A good time had by all...but this visit seemed, somehow, way too short.
cry

Then I went and looked at my geek list from Oct. last year (2007) and sure enough, we got way more games in, so it definitely was an extra day on the previous visit, and one less day on this visit.

Soon after arriving, we got down to gaming! (surprised?)

Alex brought his new x-mas present (from Amy) out to play. We actually had quite a few games played the first evening.

Chris, Alex, Pat & Christine played (Paul, Phredd, Pat & Princess). If I remember correctly... the Princess won. A winner with everyone, but Christine. She gave the game a 6 (not bad, but certainly not something she'll be dying to get back to).

Henry played quite a few times, mostly with Alex (thanks Uncle Alex!) and rated this a 7+. The plus follows in the footsteps of Alex's reluctance to commit to, gasp, an eight.

Archeology at the turn of the century.

A recent favorite of Christine's, the four of us pulled chits out of colored bags. Alex won the game hands down pulling scads of treasures from the "dirt". Pat was iffy on this game, only giving it a "5", but thought after a second attempt he "might" upgrade it.

The Great Dalmuti, the Lesser Dalmuti, the Lesser Peon, and the Greater Peon.

Henry has been trying to get this game to the table for weeks... so we finally relented. And a good thing too. I like this game, although it's really just a light game intended for large groups of people who don't really want to "game".

We only played a few rounds and switched seats only once.

Awwww... Baby Animals!

This was probably the hit of the weekend. New to both Pat & Alex, Pat had to run out and purchase it so that he and Amy can play zoo together.

Alex rated this fairly low (6) even though he certainly seemed to enjoy the games that we played.

The queen can move?!

A two person, Bakelite pub game about insects. Alex is hoping that brother Chris will like this and/or StreetSoccer. The two games I played, I beat Alex. I know that Pat played Alex once, and I believe there was at least another game played beside those three, but I don't recall who played.

And yes...
someone really did tattoo this on his arm:

 


Really funny tragic: Apparently the pieces can't be placed in the order in which he had them placed on his arm.

EDIT: After playing this game a number of times and re-reading this list, I realized that whomever said his tattoo was incorrect... was incorrect. You can indeed play those tiles, in that particular order!

Arrgh! I didn't even want a lake!

Yes, one of the first items that Christopher won the bid on was a lake, and he didn't even need a damn lake.

I was very excited to have both Alex and Pat like this game (besides the wife liking it as well). Even though it's a resource management game... they liked it, they really liked it!

Christine gives this game a 9! (which makes me hot)

Trick (or Treat) Taking

A trick taking game with witches, familiars and spells. We didn't get a chance to play this with the "advanced" rules, but both Pat and I liked it. Alex gave it a 5.

Although relatively light in the trick-taking world of card games, the art is beautiful, and it does have a bit of strategy to it (albeit not much).

Pat Gleefully Raped and Pillaged

Pat seemed to be on fire with his dice, successfully raiding... not even slowing down at the big three (that needed "6"s on the dice).

I pulled off the win on this one, mainly because I had played it before and understood the significance of the points from settlements.

This was definitely a winner with eights across the board... oh, wait... Alex gave it a 7+.

Here's what Pat's place looked like near the end of the game:

Don't sit to the left of Chris

Christopher's shoulder is still sore from the repeated punches inflicted upon him by Alex. This was a hit with everyone but the Princess (who rated it a 5). However, both Pat & Alex liked this one, so it looks like this was a good purchase.

Should have played this one again...

This game really shines with three. Playing it with four isn't as good, so perhaps that's why it wasn't as big a hit as it could have been. Alex and Pat seemed to like it, but they didn't rate it yet! ???

P.S. The image I chose is one I created and uploaded to the geek to show how small the board is.

Yes, Henry got drunk and passed out.

This one wasn't as well received as I thought it was going to be. I purchased it specifically for the 3 P's, but it didn't quite hold up. (a rating of sixes across the board). Pat did in fact love "Pooky", the magician's familiar, so he wants to definitely play again before settling in on a solid rating.

The only highlight in the game, was that we played it with Henry (11 yrs. old) who proceeded to lose most of all (i.e. drank too much dragon brew).

Pat looked at ALL my cards!

Pat won this one hands down, bragging about narrowing it down to only two of the monks half way through the game. I'm not crazy about this game... but the wife really liked it, and it will play well with non-gamers (i.e. her family) so I'm glad I picked it up. Pat liked it. :-)

Alex Dominated

I'm convinced it was the army he used (which he wanted to play the second game as well).... but that's just me being petty.

This was perhaps the winner of the weekend with the three P's garnering eights cross the board. A good, chaotic, kill-you-neighbor game.

This could definitely benefit from some rule tweaks in order to minimize the chaos/chance. Perhaps drawing a "hand" of six hexes throughout the game (from which to choose 2 each turn?).

The pics for this game are lame... I might have to upload a few.
This was a surprise hit for everyone. Surprise in that I thought it wouldn't go over as well as it did.

Pat gave this game a seven, even after being repeatedly denied resources and the ability to "go first" through out the game!

We drove out to the comic shop, then picked up Henry from school, then the game store, then home again. Two quick games of brains and then off to the Black Sheep.

301 and 10-card Slop

At the pub we started with a good game of 301 (good because Alex didn't win and gave Pat and I a chance at glory)... and then a very quick game of 10-card Slop (Christopher's fledgling dart-card game), which Alex won handily, procuring three cards (three doubles) in a row!

Humiliation!

We tried to start a game of Lunch Money but it soon petered out due to the lack of rules understanding. I have to remember to read-up on this one so that this won't happen again in the future.

The fallout of this "almost" game, was that Pat & Alex agreed to swap Lunch Money for Give Me The Brain.

The Bottle Imp


So... if I throw this 3 down... and then Alex throws the seven... who gets the bottle again?

A definite hit with all three of us (eights across the board)... but GEEEZ, it's hard. The rules are very straightforward, but it's very difficult to get in-the-groove if your aging brain is stuck in "hearts" mode.

One point per route, not per piece?!
One connection token per piece not played?!


Boy were we playing this one wrong (beside the fact that I forgot to originally include this in the geek list).

Quote from Alex after learning all of the errors we I made with the rules:
"So i *totally* would have won."

With the rules we were playing, I won the game (although it looked as though Pat was going to walk away with this one again). But, here is the list of all of the rules we played incorrectly:

1. 1 point per route, rather than per route piece. In other words, one point per color that the passenger travels upon, and that's it.
2. 2 points per terminus station connected to.
3. 1 point per stations surrounded.
4. Early on we realized we should be getting a connection token per colored route piece not played.

Sheesh. I'm definitely looking forward to playing this one correctly.
