I wanted to play this game because it's the highest BGG rated game in my collection that I haven't personally rated. I had played it once before, but I needed another play before rating it. I'm giving it an 8. I really enjoyed it -- I love the different decisions that the dice make the players make. Plus, tiny wooden camels. What's not to love?

Winner: David K. and Sam (tie)

Heard from the other room: "4 is the worst score to have!" Everyone seemed to enjoy this game, I walked in, watched part of a turn and declared that it looked like "Outpost plus". Both games were made by Tom Lehman (love him!) and Steven confirmed that Tom did have Outpost in mind when creating this game.

Winner: Mike

Two games of this were played back-to-back: the introductory game and the advanced game. Someday, the full game will be played, but we might have to reserve a special day for that (like we're doing for Battlestar Galactica). The players seemed to really like this game a lot, and I'm sure it will get played more.

James Cook seemed to garner a lot more respect in this game than he actually did in history.

Winner 1st game: ?; 2nd game: Steven

Yes, the three Davids were looking for a brain. Crazy, random game.

Alchemical hijinks were had. I like this game a lot, but I think it might be a little better with more than two players -- it's pretty straightforward with only two.

Winner: Davy

Winner: The game

We had everything we needed to cure the fourth disease and win, but we were defeated at the last moment by an unlucky outbreak in China. So close!
