My top score on this version.
Again we played with the Characters [expansion]

This time I had a character that allowed to to return ALL tickets I picked up on the sacrifice of one whitetrain. I had one train left on my last turn. I used the safety net to draw extra tickets and scored an extra 7 points for an already completed ticket.

Her character gave her extra blacktrainblacktrainblacktrain at the beginning of the game. She used one of them.

Her biggest problem came from one poorly placed train early in the game. Hanoi<>Macau. That blocked my ticket from Singapore<>Macau. I immediately countered by placing Calcutta<>Mandalay so I could get to Macau via Xian. That ended up blocking her far more effectively than she had blocked me. She never recovered. soblue

Note that none of these were deliberate blocks. We don't play that way. They were simply attempts to optimise our own routes. After the game we analysed our routes, and she realised she would have been better off going via Xian as I ended up doing. In fact had she done so, she probably would have won! It certainly would have been a much closer game.

Bringing this for its card holder racks (for use with Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion #6 – EPIC Napoleonics). Would be nice to play the team Asia game, if we can find a base set of the game, as I won't have one with me.

Last TtR for the month. I promise.

We played the Legendary Asia map. The other side is REALLY not suited to 2p play as it is intended for team play. Preferably 6.

Legendary Asia is quite good for two. There are several tight areas that make for intense play and the Mountain routes make an interesting spin on the Tunnel concept in Europe. This is the third attempt to get that idea right. Tunnels as in Europe and Nordic, Mountain Routes here and "difficult terrain" in Rails&Sails. Personally I prefer the original Tunnels. I quite like the push your luck element that is missing in the other two.

Mountainous routes require an extra train piece for each "X" on the route. You score an extra 2 points for each train you have to discard. It is quite worthwhile for 1 train mountain routes as it effectively makes it a 2 train route worth 3 instead of the usual 2. But longer routes are less and less worthwhile. Though sometimes you just have to take them anyway. It can also get tricky planning the number of pieces you need to complete your tickets as you have to remember to allow for the extra pieces needed on mountain routes. In 4,5 player games some routes have a mountain route adjacent to a normal route, so the first player gets the easy route, forcing the next player into the mountains. But this is not applicable to the 2p experience because as usual, the double routes are blocked off at low player counts.

The end game bonus is "Largest network" (Most connected cities) rather than longest route or most completed tickets which are more common. I quite like this twist. It promotes branching paths rather than the long snake that you go for in, for example, Europe.

Our game went well with us playing neck and neck. In the end, I had the largest network (18 cities <> 10 cities) which made all the difference:

Sabrina and Jake played a flawless game of TtR Team Asia and won by a healthy margin. This was one of my worst plays. Our team made the cardinal mistake of building at largely uneven rates and allowing ourselves to be blocked on a critical route on the west side of the map.

As already mentioned in a previous entry, ee bought this expansion mainly to get the card holders for use with Rails & Sails which tends to end up with unmanageable hands of cards.

Still we have the game now, so we tried it.

One side of the board is Team Asia which as you might imagine is exclusively for team play. So 4 or six players only. Not exactly suited to couples play.

The other side of the board is "Legendary Asia" This is pitched at solo play 2 - 5 players. So this is the one we tried.

This is similar to the base game which for us is Europe.
So it has short and long tickets. And you take one long and three short, keeping at least two of the four tickets.
Like Europe, it has Ferries which work the same way. No Stations though.
The Tunnels of Europe have morphed into "Mountain Routes". These cost the normal number of cards to build, but cost an extra train piece. This goes into a holding area and score two points per train discarded. so a mountain route two trains long, but with one mountain symbol will take three trains to build, and will score a total of four points. The same as if it was a three train route. Where it starts messing with your head is if it is a two mountain route. This will use 4 trains which would normally give you 7 points, but it is a mountain route, so it will only score you 6 points.

The head messing continues. Because it is not immediately obvious how many trains you will use, it is easy to miss-plan the number of trains you need. Further if you are pushed from a normal route onto a mountain one, then all your careful calculations go out the window.

Because of this, this version is much less heavily dependent on continued ticket draw than, say, Switzerland. In fact we both only took the first batch of tickets. She kept all four of them. I discarded one. So she used all her trains on only 4 tickets. I had six trains left after completing only three tickets. But by then, she had triggered end of game, so I just built a 5 train route to finish up.

So the final scores:
kiss 116
arrrh 107 cry

So our final opinions?
The card racks are worthwhile for other games in the series. But not this one so much. Yes they are necessary for the team game. But for a couples game? No.

Legendary Asia works OK as a couples game. But Nordic, UK and Switzerland work much better. The Team Asia side is totally pointless as a couples game. I cannot see how to modify it to work except to play it a vanilla TtR. And what's the point in that?

So would I buy it again? Probably not. The racks ARE worthwhile. but there are other ways to deal with that issue in R&S. Team Asia is pointless for couples. And Legendary Asia is mediocre at best for couples within the family.

Will we play again? Probably. We have the board now. And it makes a pleasant change to visit new places. Some of them I would REALLY like to visit in real life. Some I already have. Also the mountain routes add an interesting dynamic that keep us on our toes mentally. There is only a fairly small ticket pool though, so if we play too often we will quickly learn all the options.

Spring Break meant my wife slept in rather than get up early and play coffee games when I worked from home...


Thursday
1x - Mice and Mystics - mb

Chapter 6: Barksburg Fields [Colin, Filch, Lily, Nez] - Success
There was much ground to cover which we made good time with only a few skirmishes to slow us down until we reached the courtyard. There we found a minions in force that captured all but Lily who survived with a little help from Brodie before claiming victory. The last tile was exciting and challenging the rest felt like a bit of roll and attack or move to deplete our health before the big battle.

Friday
3x - Lost Cities

Wife and I pulled out Lost Cities for a three plays over coffee. We kept with the trend, I won 2 of 3.

Saturday - Game Night
1x - Kingdom Builder
1x - Ticket to Ride: Team Asia

Saturday was Game Night and after 30 minutes, still no one had shown. Then finally a couple showed up and after we ate we sat down for a 3p game of Kingdom Builder. I lost badly, making poor choices while trying to teach the game. As we wrapped up my wife got back home and another couple showed up which made for a perfect opportunity to play TtR: Team Asia, my favorite variant. We played couples and had an enjoyable time talking, laughing and playing a game. We won a close one that came down to scoring our tickets and bonuses.

I've got another crazy month in front of me. Hoping to keep the games going as I have time.

meeple Keep playing...

Late June
Military Intelligence, Part 2


Spoiler (click to reveal)
Q: Any further progress to report, Mr. Edo?
A: I’m pleased to say this month was much more successful than last.
Q: How so?
A: We cured two diseases. Off the top of my head, Putin Pox and Playoff Fever. We also eradicated one of them, with only four outbreaks to speak of. Only one day remained to discover the final cure or set up the last military base, completing our objectives.
Q: And did you?
A: Well...no.
Q: Elaborate.
A: Yet again, a double outbreak of Modi Mumps ravaged Chennai and Delhi, immediately dooming our hopes. Both cities are now fallen due to neglect.
Q: How could this have happened?
A: The parochialism of the Atlanta-based CDC researchers leads them to prioritize treating the yellow and blue regions, while fear of the Faded disease spreading has led to an allocation of resources in Coda-affected areas. But meanwhile, no one is left to triage countries affected by Modi Mumps, and the fear of Coda on their doorstep has led to widespread panic in India. It was the Western governments’ shortsightedness that did this.
Q: ...really?
A: Well, we definitely need to stop ignoring this particular public health crisis.
Q: So has the team taken steps to remedy this going forward?
A: Not directly. We decided to set up a permanent military base in...Montreal.
Q: Montreal?
A: Darn zombie Quebecois separatists.
Q: So what are you going to do with yourself now?
A: The only thing I can do, throw myself right back into the fight. Well, I have a couple days of leave before the new month starts, and technically I’m due for a belated birthday celebration. Such as it is.
Q: Happy birthday, then.
A: Thank you.


A note on upgrades:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
My notes have “we chose not to take the eradicated disease to level three, instead going for the Montreal base and a character upgrade,” but I don’t think that’s right because the character upgrade I thought we had in late June actually wasn’t unlocked yet (probably was early July).

I know at some point we get Putin Pox (blue) to level two, and I have no idea when that was. This might have been it?
