This is a new Geeklist series that I want to try out for our guild in order to highlight and spark discussion for the current game of the month. Also it will allow us to keep a running total of victory points earned across all plays of the game.

One of the most fun aspects of this hobby is discussing strategy, and debriefing the game session so I hope this format will lend itself to that. After each gamenight I will update the list with the new entry.

Thursday Night Gaming: May 6th

Tonight was the first session with Leonardo and as can be expected from a learning game mistakes were made, "Oh yeah!" rules that affected gameplay were present, and a lot of time was spent getting a handle on the game. It still played surprisingly quickly.

Michael was new to the game but otherwise everyone else was ready to go. The scores were a bit closer together than last time. Now that most of us have two sessions done what are some impressions about strategy? What do you think are the most important favors to pick? Should you ever pay $4 for anything? What were some of your critical choices in the game?

Tonight we played with the two print and play expansions for Leonardo that Mark provided for us. The expansions allow more flexibility with components and infuse more money into the game. Is this a better thing? Did anyone change up their strategy? Discuss!

Tonight's session was a two-player game. The game scales to two players by only allowing 1 favor to be taken at the beginning and only having 3 works showing at a time that can be constructed. Both players can do an action in the council if both go for it.
