My first game of the day and my first play of this. I totally botched that the 3 VP cards were basically the game. I pulled two of the "place in Sand" bonuses so blithely emptied out to the tune of 5 a turn and got absolutely nowhere. I'll try again, but I don't think this is going to be a heavy fave of mine.

Matt and I were bidding on this, and Matt graciously ceded, if I promised to bring it to meetup. Happy to oblige. It sucked when I had to sell my copy in the fall. Now that I got a big paycheck, its kinda like going back to the pawnshop and reclaiming the hocked items. Happy to have Wongar back in the fold. I decided to focus on cards, particularly the rarer squares and cylinders. I ended up w/ 4 squares and 2 cylinders. I would have liked another cylinder, but it turned out to be enough. I also picked my battles and managed to score some big points in the mid-end game.

Davido 55 (square and cylinder bonus)
Matt 46
Scott 45
Jean 39 (disk bonus)
Davidm-22

My second play of this and I vowed to go big or go home. At one time or another, I had the DA, Treasurer, Contractor, and the one that gives a bonus for industrial. I got picked away, however.

Aaron-113
Marcus-96
Davido-86

I'm not really feeling this one. i think I prefer Dominant Species' perfect information (upon tile/counter reveal at turn start). I'd play Urban Sprawl again, but there would always be the nagging feeling that I could be playing something else.

edit: while Jeff (jjacjackson) and I come from different perspectives, I pretty much agree w/ Jeff's comments on Dominant Species viz Urban Sprawl.

I'm on a mission to table the unplayed games and what better than this Secret Santa prezzie Phil, Rich, and DavidM joined the Funder down Under

(Tx = decline)
Rich: Flocking Ogres-T3-Vampire Shadow Mime-T8-Mystic Kraken: 111
(Brass Pipe)

Davido: Martyr Shrooms-T3-Immortal Mummies-T7-Muddy Spiderines
(Altar of Souls and later Stinky Toll Socks): 93

DavidM: Thieving Mudmen-T4-Wise Cultists-T8-Vengeful Lizardmen
(Flying Doormat): 80

Phil: Mining WilloWisps-T8-Quarreling Flames
(Diamond Fields): 71

I had a blast, and another play and I'll be ready for Tunnels and a combo w/ all expansions

Notes-I really dig the places n relics. It makes going after the monsters (nee Lost Tribes) very worthwhile and changes up the dynamics viz the original SW. For example, w/ the Altar of Souls, I was able to milk the declined Shrooms for an extra two turns. W/o that, in regular small world, I'd be more likely to decline my 2nd race and really leverage my 3rd race. Obviously different relics/places have different strategies but its a great addition to the game system. While some races/powers have SW analogs, overall, I think the differences outweigh the parallels and the game shines on its own. Like Small World, this is 'too much fun in a box'.

DK, Patrick, and I played this between Quarriors and Urban Sprawl. The more I play this game, the more I like it. It oozes theme and is instantly engaging. I look forward to more games of it.

DK played the Reikland Reavers, Patrick played the Gouged Eye, and I picked up the Skavenblight Scramblers. I steadily built up fans all game and went for team upgrades over staff upgrades. DK did something similar, but did it better and pulled out a come from behind win.

Scores:

DK - 59
Rich - 50
Patrick - 44

Pretty close game in the end.
