After almost three years of collecting the Alea Big Box series, Krista and I were able to complete it this last month! So we had our first themed game day and were able to play all 12 games, with 8 players, in a little over 10 hours! It has to be a record of some kind! Thanks to everyone who came and participated, it was a fun accomplishment. Has anyone else done something similar?

It seemed logical to start this quest with the #1 game in the series and we wanted to play something relatively short so that other people would have a chance to arrive. The first epoch the Ra tiles were coming out fast and furious, but the next two epics they came less quickly. I thought I had one this game hands down, getting 6 unique buildings the first epoch, but in the end David came back with his Pharaoh domination and having the most sun points. This was his first time playing Ra, which is pretty hard to win your first time, so congrats on that!

While we were playing Ra, both Mike & Andrew showed up, and with Krista pulled out the number 1 game on the Geek. I?m not sure how the game went, but from the scoring tablet it seems that they all tried a balanced building and shipping strategy.

Notre Dame came next, which seems to be one of David?s favorite games. Todd is a little iffy on it though I believe. I got a lot of money and all my cubes early, but sacrificed scoring points, which ended up hurting me. Todd got 4 cubes into the park rather quickly, which towards the end of the game really added up with an 8, 8, and then 11 point scores. David got two cubes in the park early, but was not able to accumulate victory points at the pace of Todd and I.

We never seemed to end games quite at the same time today, so the Puerto Rico group pulled out Taj Mahal together. I guess Krista passed two different visits, which ended up hurting her badly, while Andrew was able to score something like 8 connected regions.

Using my great strategy of being the best wrangler with the most rum, I was able to when all 5 bunks this game, which propelled me to the win. Though this game does not really fit in the Alea series, it is not a bad game when played with 3 players. There is a lot of luck, but I enjoy the way the pirates move and the wrangling mechanic.

After Rum and Pirates was over, the Taj Mahal game was still going, but Jon Kafoure showed up and joined us for some Traders. We started off slowly at first, since it was the first time playing for all the others, but we picked up speed towards the end. Jon and David seemed to form a secret, boycott against Adam throughout the game, but I collected a decent amount of money from my owned grains and spices buildings. Todd and Jon were the two who focused on privileges and after it was all said and done it worked out for them. Everyone seemed to think David was going to win, even David, surprisingly though he finished in last.

Jon $740
Todd $705
Adam $675
David $670

Since Mike had to leave early and we had already played Ra, probably the shortest game of the Alea series, the other players broke string and played Carc. Not sure if any expansions were used.

Our version is the German version, which cause some confusion in the rules, because the English print out that we have did not seem to be completely correct. We did the best we could though. Andrew really got hammered the first exhibit he played, not understanding how thieves worked and losing two items. Todd had the lead pretty much the whole time.

I know that David tried a new strategy, not sure what it was though. Logan said he dominated the whole game.

There was lots of yelling in this game. Krista said that David was to stubborn to trade anything. It must have worked for him though.

David $120,000
Jon $110,000
Krista $106,000
Logan $104,000

This is probably my least favorite of all the big box series. I just cannot get the feel of the flow of the game. There does not seem to be a logical sequence. Maybe I am just missing something. Andrew, thanks to 6 skyscrapers in one spot next to 4 unique businesses, was able to score 48 points at the final scoring and take the win.

Logan had to leave, so we broke into the final to games with 3 people each. Mammoth hunters was extremely hard on David, having his Mammoths removed from the his regions several times. The killer play of the game came the 3rd round when I placed 3 hunters in a region where David had 4 hunters. He then played another mammoth there giving the region 2 mammoths. I then placed 3 more hunters there and ended up getting 12 points for that region. David was only able to score 15 points the final 3 rounds. Jon, his first time playing did not do badly at all. We all agreed that we like the game and look forward to playing again.

Krista did not build one building the whole game, going for Jesters, but in the end she paid too much for them and Andrew took the win. The last turn all players were able to do 2 works with an average of 20+ work value.
