At this point in the con, I had completed the two events that I had signed up for on Saturday, and was looking for open gaming opportunities. I had intended on heading to the 1st MN room or the UndeadViking room, or even seeking out my friends Sam or Zack for a game or three. But, prior to that, I ran into Shawn, his son Aiden, and our friend Jay, who were setting up to play Rex. The sixth player was absent, so they goaded me into playing.

I’ll do my best to explain this game, but forgive me if I get it wrong. Rex is an area control game of alliances and war, set in the Twilight Imperium universe. It was originally designed to be played in the Dune universe, but that was scrapped for a variety of reasons that I won’t go into here. Each player is a race trying to form alliances and conquer enough areas of the world to ensure victory. Each player race is asymmetric to each other race, and therefore there are multiple paths to victory.

Upon starting play, I was unsure of this game. It’s not really my type of game, as it requires a deep understanding of the various roles, and so I spent the first turn of the game attempting to undermine the races that I thought were front-runners to victory. As it turns out, in later rounds, these two became my alliance partners, and we ended up losing the game, twice.

How does one lose a game twice? Well, one of the players in the other alliance (Jay), had won a victory in a city, but destroyed his army in the process. Had he left one unit, their alliance would have won. One of the players in his alliance wanted to roll back the play, not realizing that Jay might not want to share the victory with his alliance, as Jay’s race has the ability to predict the round and victor in the war, and if he is right, he actually wins the game. This player didn’t quite grok that, and spent a considerable amount of energy arguing over how the game was already won. This dragged the remaining rounds out quite considerably.

Several turns later, Aiden and I were out of the game, due to our inability to properly communicate what we needed to our third alliance partner. To his credit, he was new to the game, but Aiden wasn’t, and we should have used the break in the action to formulate a path to victory. As it was, the game dragged on for another four rounds, until victory was assured for the other team and we decided to call it. At that point, everyone agreed, but upon revealing the victor, it showed that Jay would have won. So, I give the victory to Jay.

This game was frustrating for me because it’s one of those games that you can’t really expect to “learn and play” and do well at. There are too many interactions that matter, and without knowing them ahead of time (through play) it’s difficult to know which strategy to employ. Additionally, each race being asymmetric to one another means you might not be playing a race that matches what you’d like to do in the game. If you want to attack, but have a race that is a “turtle race” that doesn’t really fight much, then you may not have much fun, even if you win.

I knew on the surface that I probably wouldn’t like this game, and I should have kept on keeping on, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with my friends. In the end, there were some moments where awesomeness might have ensued, but with the complexity of the game, it overstayed it’s welcome. Which is too bad, because I think I would like this. My goal is to play this with Shawn and Jay, and give it another shot at a lower player count.

Grade: C+ (because playing with friends is always a plus)
