Pat and Alex visited from Wednesday afternoon through Saturday morning. I met the boys at the Standing Stone brewery, we had a quick pint and then headed home for games.

We had a great breakfast at Morning Glory this visit with Christine. Thank you Pat! :-)

the first game I pulled out was my recent stress-during-on-call game Hamsterrolle. It's a beautiful dexterity game that Alex excels at. He won the majority of the games we played over the few days they were here.

We all tied, saving 12 people from the burning lava. However, Alex had the least number of cindered crispies who screamed as they fell into Mt. Vesuvius.

Thursday Morning

Typically, we decided to wade through the new games (learning a we go) in the morning.

Supposedly a simple game to learn, we had trouble with many of the subtleties of play. Only a third of the way into the game, we called it quits and pulled out TOMB instead.

A decent enough dungeon crawl. Lots of "wait, this character can..." or "hold on, I can play this card now, right?" or "Dammit, that's the third time I entered the Crypt and forgot to use my spell!".

Alex thought the variations of play did not make the game any different each time (lots of different characters for the crawling parties for instance).

Pat and I both enjoyed the game a fair bit. Can't take this one too seriously though.

Max joined us (sort of) for Risk Godstorm... he quit halfway through because of other "more important" stuff.

Alex dominated most of the way through the game, but we quit half-way through after Max took off for good.

A nice, quick, filler. Pat liked it more this time than he did at the last gaming Olympics. I think because last time we played with 4 people. The game shines as a 3 player and starts to get too chaotic at 4.

Our second play of this game (first time was in Felton at the last Gaming Olympics). This time went smoother and, I think, more enjoyable. Killing opponents gave us points! Mwa ha ha. It came down to the wire between Alex and Chris. Had Chris beat Pat in one of the battles near the end he would have pulled off a victory, but Alex won in the end.

Good game! Both Alex and Pat had great mood music for the games. Alex was the traitor twice, and Pat once. Christine played, but rated the game a 4... ah well.

After dying during the last game, I was still a part of the victories "good guys" in the end as we successfully banished the banshee. That game included a full complement of five people: Christine, Max, Alex, Pat and Chris.

I think this area-control variant is a solid game. It's the third (for me) in the mask series and I'm glad I bought this one. It's different enough from Tikal and Java to have a place of it's own on the shelf (IMHO).

Pat won the game.
Alex rated this a 4.

The only sour moment of the visit. :-(
Pat, Alex and I argued over a point in the rules. Something we rarely do. I've posed the question to the geek in the game forum, but solving the dispute doesn't help the yucky feelings we had.

I think this game has potential, but I really didn't want to give it another go just yet.

Friday evening found us at the Black Sheep. The music, thankfully, was decent this time! We found out the music is entirely controlled by the current bartender.

Alex paid for the evening... Thanks Alex!

Once again, I made a very decent showing during the games we played, but failed miserably when we reached the Bulls... :-(

But Pat did his happy dance after beating Alex at both 501 and Cricket.

I'm liking this game more each time I play. It fell discouragingly flat for me the first few plays, but I'm enjoying it more. I think I imagined a deeper game when I first bought it, but I'm coming around to the fact that it is a fun, quick, light pirate race.

I won (as I did when we last played in Felton) because of the piles of gold I had hoarded.

For the longest time I thought if we used the new roles in this game it wouldn't be as good. This time we randomly replaced three of the people:
1. The Thief was replaced by the Tax Collector
2. The King was replaced by the Emperor
3. The Magician was replaced by the Wizard

I think the Emperor is an interesting change.

Pat won this one handily.
Some really great moments deciding which roles to take, who to kill, etc.. fun.

It was late when we pulled this one out.
We decided to play with all of the floor flotsam and more people from all of the colors.

It was cramped bedlam in the beginning of the game with the monster causing a swath of death and blood.

Chris won with only two escapees!

This game is a hit or miss for me. If you're pulling the wrong tiles at the wrong time it's not very fun. If you're pulling decent tiles, even if it doesn't mean you will win it's fun.

This time it was fun. :-)

I think if this were a standard deck of cards (6 through Ace) it might be a bit easier to get my mind around it.

This was our first play, but we all agree its worthy so it will be played again. However, we opted to not play counter-clockwise (as it was totally messing us up), opted to not play with the "Ace" or "Six" top-bottom-down scoring rules, and opted not to play with the special powers.

So this game is going to be one we end up playing for years to come as we first master the scoring/suit/card funkiness before moving on to the additional chaos thrown into the mix.
