A game of Pitchcar started the day off and we all took turns flicking around the track. Joel had a great idea and placed cards under each of the joints, which made the game a lot faster and much more fun!

I taught Bombay to an apprehensive group, but I think after the game was over, the consensus was that this was a lot of fun. Kris came out of nowhere (at least I thought) for the win. After the game, Brian pointed out that he had sold almost all of his silk for the top positions in the different cities.

A very fun game of RR Tycoon. Or maybe that's because I won. Anyway, I was building in the Southeast and up toward New York. I tangled with Thies a little, but he never really seemed to get much going. I had to take a ton of shares out and really didn't start making points until I upgraded to the 7 train (I had the tycoon who gave bonus points for upgrading to the 6 train first). Brian and DJ tangled around Chicago and Rob joined in but quickly headed south. Joel hung around in the deep south around Atlanta.

I can't wait for Rails of the World to come out, because this game is just too fun!

I'll post some pictures I took at the game day to their various games when I get them uploaded tonight.

My only regret for the day (well, maybe not my only) was not being able to play Imperial. Our group and anyone else who plays with us has been using the investor card, but recently the no-investor card variant has been popular. I still need to try this, and hopefully, I won't have to wait too long.

As for this game, I remember overhearing from our game of Automobile Rob saying, "This game should have ended two turns ago!"

It seems this game generated a question:

If a wasabi is in play and you finish some recipe beyond it, can you still claim the recipe?

I think "no", but maybe someone else knows the answer for sure?

This was the first time I played Kingsburg. It's a fun game, but I think it needs to be played a little more quickly. I think if you "played from the gut" more, it could be very enjoyable.

DJ pointed out that I forgot a game. Not one that many people liked, but here it is (with DJ's comment):

Hey James. Joel, Thies, Rob and myself also got a game of Liberty in at the gameday. I won but the overall impression of the game was less than glowing. The color scheme on the board and cards is simply terrible and the board gets so freaking cluttered that it would be a major pain to try to actually take the time to sort the mess out each round before taking your moves. A disappointment for sure.

Ra is a classic. It is a really great game and quickly becoming one of my favorite auction games. We all tried different strategies and it was Thies, with his bid early and bid often strategy that netted him some serious monuments and other bonuses to pull out the win.

At about 12:45, this game broke out. It was pretty cool that so many people were willing to play games into the wee hours of the morning. I'm more shocked that Joel and DJ can go from futuristic space marines to playing Renaissance princes in nary a heartbeat.

Yeah. That's right. 12:45 and Rob and I started this puppy. It was crazy, insane and what else did Chiara call it? Oh yeah, stupid!

Rob and I set this up and with no one else willing to accept the challenge of a 5-6 hour 18xx game starting after midnight, we dove in. We wrapped it up at about 5:45 am because I was scared that the sun would rise and Chiara would catch us still playing, which really would have been bad.

I'm not going to go into detail, but this game was quite engrossing. I've left it set up where we stopped, because I keep looking at it and thinking of different things I could have done had I had my wits about me.

For one thing, I don't think either Rob or I played aggressively enough. Almost all of our major companies still had between 2 and 4 stations to place. Now that I think about it, we should have been placing those stations to block each other much more.

Secondly, we never built through the mountains. In a 2 player game, there isn't enough head butting, so there aren't as many incentives to find alternate passages into key cities as there could have been with more players.

Finally, it seemed silly at the time to buy each others shares and then sell them. Thies came over and watched for awhile after Princes broke up and encouraged us to do that, but it just didn't seem worth the effort. I'm also not convinced that this game is set up for that. With 2 players, it really feels like a game that is going to reward you for investing well and building up a a good company or two, rather than trash companies and bankrupt the other players.

I'm really looking forward to trying this with more players. I think between 3-4 would be a good next step, but I wouldn't mind trying it with the full compliment of 6. The problem is where am I going to find 5 other 18xx players around here. 5 might be the limit for the moment.

We'll certainly have to start before midnight though, and maybe we can do it on a weekend, where there will be plenty of time to think about strategy and how to get an upper hand over our opponents.
