It's the last day of 2008!

I have played my fair share of games this year. There were a few turkeys, but on the whole, I had played many great games. Most of these sessions were recorded in my BGG Games Played section.

What was the last game you played in 2008?

I did not play any game today but the last game I played was a few days ago and it was...

...Pacific Typhoon on 27 December 2008!

A friend bought PT and taught a bunch of us how to play it. I love trick-taking card games. However, initially, I thought The WWII theme for a trick-taking card game was strange, but after my first game of PT, I was hooked! (I never played it's predecessor Atlantic Storm before).

PT is really fun and very tense. There was laughter and groans from different players as each round was concluded, just like what was described in the rules! Love this!

On the last day of the year, today, I'll be playing my all-time favorite game. We're going to play with family and some family friends and intend to do a 6-player game this afternoon.

We're going to utilize the 4th ring from the expansion and play with the Age of Empire variant. An epic good time is expected by all.

A two player run with my 6 1/2 year old son. He was the Druid against my Monk. Something to help him stay awake til the fireworks

As is his way, he seemed to find every great item, surround himself with the choice followers and dispatched the robed one with four straight shots from the Crown of Command! The best part? He changed his alignment before each roll "just to see if the Good Druid wants you to have a chance Daddy.)

He didn't!

Bring on the Reaper in 2009!

Had a 5-player game of A Game Of Thrones yesterday, with some use of expansions - ports, siege engines & reinforcements? (the grey castle pieces)...

It's not one of my favourites but I was happy to play again for a 2nd time to have another attempt. I definitely find this one a hard game to play - was 2nd last as Lanninsport (red) & got hemmed in under pressure from the green player in the south. I fought my way back a bit, but green won in Turn 10 by spreading round to the East for the 7th city.

Took about 5 hours; perhaps a bit long for my liking as there can be a fair amount of downtime.

I am in NYC for NYE so there will be no games today, thus my last game of 2008 will be a 3 player game of Race with my brother & sister-in-law. This was a fitting end as I played a lot of games of race and I introduced the game to my brother and sister-in-law in June.

Happy New Year!

This is last game I started in 2008 (it didn't finish until after midnight though). Finally teaching one of the owner's how to play, after his wife and others had been playing for about 6 weeks.
He'd had reservations due to the similar look to The Pillars of the Earth and him not enjoying that game. Something I wish he'd mentioned as a reason to not play as I feel similarly about Pillars but really like Stone Age.

Apart from him that was new, the rest of us had all played at least a handful of times (more in my case) and there was only 4 points separating our three scores at the end of the game.

Since I had to work the week of Christmas, we celebrated this week instead. I gave my son a copy of Epic Duels as a Christmas present. I was pleased to see how much he loved it.

We played the inaugural game on New Year's Eve. As it happened, Darth Vader crushed two battle droids before crushing the life out of Obiwan Kenobi. My son was well pleased. I'm sure we'll play a few more times this week. There are several other characters to explore, and I need to vindicate the gruesome loss by the light side. Time to bust out Yoda!

Played Bandu with a few non gamers on Sunday. They all liked it. Fortunately, I've introduced most of them to Basari, so I'm thinking I'll try for Shogun next.

Edit: Oh, and I lost every game of Bandu/Bausack. Somehow...

Never heard of it but my friend pulled it out at the New Years party so we tried a 6 player game. Plays similar to Ticket to Ride. It's not very forgiving and money is tight. Not a bad game and would try it again.

I taught this one to my Dad, sister, and brother-in-law recently so this was their second game and about my fifth game. I actually telegraphed some of what I planned to do at the begining of the game by following the recommendations in the game for better play.

I maximized the green cards, the workers, so that I could get a better econonmy than anyone else. I actually took the risk with the 7 cost cards which payed off. I was able to get many multiples of two different workers which greatly reduced the cost to me. I was teased for having so many cards "on layaway" as we've started calling it. I bought everything in the last round.

They won't let me use that exact strategy again so I'm going to have to improve my overall strategy. Great times and excellent game.
