Played a 5 player game right off the bat. 3 newbies and Bryon who had played before. Have played now with 3, 4 and 5 players. Unusually I think I actually prefer this with more players as the game seems a little tighter. We certainly had plenty of Loss cubes to go around in the last turn! Later I taught the game to 3 more new players in a 3 player game.

I like this odd tile placement game. Unfortunately I play it so infrequently we always mess up on the expropriation. Today I managed to get 2 games in. The first we definitely did a few booboos but the second game I'm fairly certain we had it right. Fascinating game.

or as it shall forever be known to me as "my cup sucketh over, and over, and over..." Kind of a cross between Wabash, Age of Scheme and Andromeda-no magic ashtray but a cup from which to pull your markers for turn order-or as the case may be, no turn at all! Made a few crucial errors and really ended poorly with very few actual turns, but definitely interested in trying it again.

Very nice little 2 player abstract filler. Takes about 3 minutes to play. You try and move the majority of robots into your half of the board by luring them with energy cubes. The game can end quite suddenly when the supply of cubes runs out.

Love this party version of I spy. We crowded in 2 players per board set up for an 8 player game.

Don't forget FITS, Lorna. Or your new record score. I think we should start implementing a "no cross dumping" house rule, if only for just you.

Table-top Crokinole combat that is every bit as fun as that sounds. The discovery of the day for me.

The older, Ravensberger version. My first time with this, but my experience with Ausgebremst served me well.

Was taught this one, in a quick 3 player game. It doesn't work well with that many. I need to play it with more players, for allies come into play more. And I didn't understand the consequences or results of negotiation. I really need another play of this, with 5 players.

What's a game day without some pestilence?

Seeing as the world ended twice, I got enough.

No medic, and 5 epidemics, ended with chain reaction outbreaks.

The second game, with only 4 epidemics, ran out 'time' with still one infection to cure. So close.

I love that you can play this game, and lose, then have everyone beg to play it again. Good fun.

I love RRT (East US map) and like this European map. I haven't made up my mind which I like better, but I'm leaning towards USA.

I will have to get the new England map, as well.

Greg and Andy still haven't gotten a 6 player game of this. But every
time I play it, I like it a little less.

I like concept. But for a game with ships and rules on how to fight with them, I rarely feel that I should use them, due to the player who selects 'Warlord' going first, and the rest of the players attacking after him.

I saw some folks had grabbed my copy and taught themselves how to play. I checked on them at one point, and they clearly got the strategy right. There are definate rewards for dying.

I really like this game. It crosses card drafting with area control, two of my favorite things.
