Hmmm amazing how "3d Blockus" plays exactly like Rumis,

Early arrivals were Jeff, Dan, Crystal and Me. Dan had explained how he got this at such a great price. Jeff pointed out how similar it rules played to Rumis. It was interesting it seemed like a smaller board and not as cool coloring for the pieces, but ah well. We had fun.

Grant arrived shortly afterward and we started this off finding it max out as five, as Chris arrived.

We had four person in and I had to explain this game. Eric had played San Juan so I thought this might be the best lead in, since folks didn't care to play Funkenschlag (such is life). At least I know my life isn't complete just yet, when will I get to play this again who knows.

Raoul popped in to become the fith player though we tried just playing with the four card and the additional tokens but soon folks hands were filled so we added in the fifth player.

We were 1/2 to 2/3 into a near newbie game of Race for the Galaxy as the other group finished up.

So as they were in the middle of Qwirkle everyone insisted we play Race for the Glaxy again. By the end of the second playing a number of folks felt disappointed in the game, sure I would of like to have played something else but I let them make this decision. Eric later on said he liked it, Raoul also, but Jeff and Chris were kind of like well if we have to.

Oh well, I thought the expansion is pretty fun I like the new additions and being able to take over two world per round was hot, lots of cool stuff and I told them about the upcoming expansion presumable at Gen Con where player conflict can occur directly, but we'll see.

So while we were in the middle Crystal, Dan and Paul were at an impasse what to play without guidance I suggest ingenious but Settler was there so knowing they all knew it basically they went for that. They all seems to like it but were disappointed they couldn't finish.
