Cosmic Encounter! I somehow missed playing you for the first weekend this year I think.
Though I did get Runewars on the table.

I think Shadow Runners was my favorite new game I played, with Runewars almost being tied. I can see it being awesome once I learn the system inside and out, so it plays faster.

I got in a play (my third now) of this and I like it. Not for everyone and not a 10, but a good solid game that fills a slot in my collection.

I would like to have a few others try this and see how it holds up.

Nearly a late evening tradition at SAGEFEST for me...this one slipped away this month. I am a little saddened by this.

I wish I knew why I want to play this game so much when all I do is get my ass kicked.

Yep, yet another game of Le Havre and another addict is formed. Greg is now in the Le Havre club.

This game is very cool, even if Eric says its "Le Stupid".

I saw Thor getting a bunch of plays of this in, which made me sad that I was missing the action. I LOVE this game, and think its a great little civ-lite game.

Thor:
I cannot suggest enough that you download the Late Bronze Age expansion immediately, and start playing with it. I got my first game of it in last night with my wife, Nate R. and Lindsey, and it was REALLY good. It makes the game last that little bit longer and makes it even more satisfying. The small tweaks to VP, and then new developments are pretty awesome too!
