Dave had mentioned a desire to play this and we decided to go with that. I was really glad we did. I have not played this in a very long time and forgot what a good game it is. The mechanics are all quite simple and blend together very well. The "Westeros phase" helps keep up the tension about when big changes will happen on the board and definitely adds replayability, making each game a different set of circumstances. Opportunism and diplomacy are key to victory. We had so much fun in the first game, we immediately played again. I was able to with the first game as Baratheon by gaining control of Kings Landing and the coastal areas there. Next I moved north, wresting control of the seas from Dave's Starks and taking The Eyrie. The game me 5 city/stronghold areas and I was able to lunge for two more for the victory in turn 5 or 6, can't remember which. Wendell won the second game as Greyjoy in a similar manner...opportunistically grabbing my strongholds that I had foolishly left undefended in my (Tyrell) rear and then rolling over Matthew's Lannister. I would not mind seeing this hit the table again, soon, perhaps with some bits from the first expansion added.

We finished the night with this favorite. Dave had not played before, but caught on quickly and jumped out to an early lead which he was able to hold on to until the end. I was left out of much of the early action, but whined my way back to second play, picking up a lot of pity points in the second half.

This is an excellent game. It naturally brings out a lot of banter and is just plain fun. There's a reason it's one of our favorites at SNEW.

This should be arriving from GMT very soon. Plenty of time to get the blocks stickered and ready for action at SNEW October! Anyone up for side-by-side learning games?

Sword of Rome was the first game ever played at SNEW and still a favorite. I've played mostly two player games the past few sessions and have an urge for something multi-player. With this and Hellenes, we could have an ancients theme and lots of fun! Anyone interested in this?

I'll be in SC visiting my parents and Charlotte for the NASCAR race weekend. To keep a military theme, I shall return.

Anywhere in particular that I should park the Higgins boat as I wade ashore?

This is a game by BGG's Pete Belli; I was one of the recipients of his playtest kit. Supposedly playable in an hour or so, so I will bring it.

Supposed to use Settlers of Cataan to make the map, counters etc but I don't own Settlers it so if somebody can bring it...
