Eeeee!!!!

Halfway through the E period, and I'm already beating my D's (not that that was much of a challenge, but still...).

I'm really enjoying the alphabet schedule...it has gotten some new games to the table, as well as old, often-times passed-over, favorites. I love it when a plan comes together. ::Hannibal::

Here are my "E" games for weeks 9 and 10 (2/26-3/11) of 2005. Feel free to add games and comments tracking your own "E" games played during that time period as well...

My wife's favorite game, so of course it had to get at least one play in. Maybe this weekend I can talk her into a game with the Elfengold expansion...

Wow. I got this one back in 2001, and played it once. It has languished on the shelf ever since.

What was wrong with me? And why hasn't anyone been telling me to play it again?

I was seriously surprised at how enjoyable it was. We only played the "standard" game (5 auctions for 5 players), but I can definitely see how tightening it up a bit would make it that much better. This will probably get more play this weekend.

This would seem an obvious candidate, esp. since you own it.

...and we played this one a few times, with 4, then 6 players. It's definitely a different game with the full 6, too.

A very solid, "Can't Stop" style game. Luck plays a large role, of course, but whattaya expect in a dice game?

We also got in a quick round of this (soon to be reprinted in English) Kramer game, with 5 players. 5 was a little odd...I think I prefer this one with 2 or 4, but 5 was still playable. I'm considering trading off my copy and getting the reprint in a few months...although the text in the game is largely just flavor, there's a lot of it.
