Games played at EuroQuest VI.

In general, a great time was had. The hotel was a low point, which is unusual for this particular hotel. But they are trying to turn themselves into a Holiday Inn, so they're doing a lot of construction. They started at 7:30am on Friday, 8:02 on Saturday and 8:20 on Sunday. Ask me how I know.

On to the games!

The first game of the con. I had seen this in the Essen reports and I didn't think I'd like it. Agricola is a good game but it almost feels like work to me. I didn't think I'd like this one, but what the heck; I'd give it a try.

Halfway through our game I bought the only copy available at the con. What an awesome game -- thanks Tom! The first of 4 plays.

A brutal game. I'm not sure where the fun is in this one. The folks I played with had played several times before and had never won. We didn't come close to winning this one. It just wasn't fun.

I liked this one; it's better than Wabash Cannonball/Chicago Express. I like how the game "resets" in between each turn. While the game length seemed fine in terms of clock time, I didn't like that there were only 5 turns. Yeah, I know -- I can't have it both ways.

Day two of the Con and my second playing of this wonderful game. It was as much fun as the first time, very different though. It's interesting that the simple random shuffling of the 7 Supply Tiles and 30 Standard Buildings plus the selection of 6 random Special Buildings would create such a vastly different game play experience.

I found the game to be just OK. I'd play it again, but if I never had the opportunity to, I would still die a happy man (thanks to Le Havre!)

Finally! My first playing of Dominion. The best part, better than my first playing of the published game (finally!) was beating Dave. Not that I need to beat Dave at every game, or even any game. But after the last time I played Dominion with Dave, when he totally crushed me, I felt I needed to regain some dignity, and I did so this time around. I can now die in peace.

We must have gotten some rule wrong. Or even many rules wrong. I can't imagine changing any rules, though, that would make this game fun. Except perhaps the one calls for the players to take the components out of the box. Yes, that's it -- if we had left the game components in the box, we would have had a better time.

Next up was a playing Street Paintball. It was a fun game, perfectly suitable for the evening, when you're tired and punchy. Too bad I kept throwing the yellow ball at the blue player. The whole game. I lost

Next up was a 7-player game of Würfel Bingo. I had a particularly abysmal showing this time 'round. I think it was because the other players had better numbers than I did.

I taught the game to 6 people (2 games of 4 each), screaming out the rules over the din of the crowd. My voice was toast, but the game was fun! My first win.

After Le Havre a bunch of us were ready for something lighter, so we pulled out this new game from North Star Games. We had a good time and, just for the record, Phil Donahue is the best talk show host of all time.

Finished up the night with a game of Louis XIV. I almost won, and probably would have if not for a couple of bone-headed moves on my part on the last turn. Oh well -- I got to play Louis XIV, so I won just by playing!

Last day of the con saw me starting off once again with Le Havre. We tried a three-player game of it this time and it was quite different in its pace. It still took us 3 hours, though; hopefully the run-time will drop as we gain more experience.

Tried this one again and, while we weren't brutalized quite as badly as the first time, it was pretty bad, and we barely stayed alive as long as we did before dying horribly. I don't think I need to try this one again.....

And last -- but never least -- Celebrities. Let it be said that I was on the record as saying that I should not be partners with my partner. And also let it be said that I will always remember the name Shamu from now on.....
