Only 3 games hit the table this month. I've been busy with the end of school, so the report is a bit late, and I don't remember everyone who was there. But this is what the night looked like.

I was really looking forward to playing this, manipulating the politics of ancient Greece in order to control armies and attack other cities. Brian, Danny and David were all willing. We walked through the first round slowly, picked up speed and were moving at a pretty good pace by the end of the game. But to me it never felt like politics or war. It felt like moving blocks around the board. Danny compared it to Industria, another game that he doesn't like, in that there didn't seem to be a narrative, or a feeling of doing something other than following the rules of the game. (I like Industria.) The game felt a little heartless. I might play it again if someone wanted to. But I wouldn't suggest it. Too bad. Anyway, Brian won.

The game of the month. We've played this enough recently that we can get some visiting in while we play. But like poker, those that pay a bit of attention to what the other players are up to will do a bit better. Although Danny and I visited, he still won. I may make this game of the month again. I like playing to 7 better than 8.

David wanted to play Liar's Dice. There were 7 of us, so I found some more dice and an old Yatzee cup. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. This is one of my favorite games, but 7 is too many for me. Or maybe I was still tired from Perikles. I was looking good for this one until the weak links were weeded out. But Brian eventually ran away with it, and the trophy.
