Managed 7 plays of this.

What do I like? A game about the fall of Pompeii - rescue as many of your people as you can before Pompeii is buried. Doesn't help when your opponents are throwing your people in the volcano!

What's one memorable play? Played recently - had most on the board before the volcano - after the volcano I had most people in it

Why only 100th? Amazed this is 100th from the size of my collection

Ah Pompeii! The super thematic game of throwing people in volcanoes after you firmly establish your place in hell by blocking an escape route with Lava. For those unfamiliar with the game, it is played in two phases:
1.) Phase one has you populating the city of Pompeii by playing cards that correspond to colored buildings in the city.
2.) Phase two sees the volcano erupt, raining terror down on the city in the form of lava tiles drawn from a bag. If citizens aren't adept enough at (literally) playing "the floor is lava," they are burnt to a crisp and their charred bodies are thrown into the volcano piece on the board.

The winner is the player who manages to get the most villagers out of the city unsinged.

As you can probably tell, I love Pompeii and was happy to get my own copy of the title using a 50% off coupon earned from demoing Mayfair games.

I use the metal figurines from the 20th Anniversary Risk game. They make such a satisfying clink when you toss them into the volcano!

After this kind of day we needed something light. I win 15 to 8. Not a great 2-player experience -- more competition for space, and harder to get your people off the board (before they are overrun by lava) at higher player count. Still, we didn't want a brain .., um .., burner.

Vesuvius is getting ready to blow its top! devil
Can you escape the inferno!?!

In "The Downfall of Pompeii," you play two phases.
First, players take turns placing their people around the city of Pompeii, knowing that Vesuvius will erupt soon.
Once it does, the second phase begins, in which the people must make it out of the city alive.
The player who get the most people to SURVIVE wins!

We have played this copy a few times, but it is in great shape with the pieces nicely bagged up for you.

This game can be yours if you only Pom-pay $25.

Enjoy!surprise

SOLD!
Thank you, Nate.
We have a deal!
I'll see you in Orlando
Fred

Not many games, but some nice ones.

Tuesday
The Downfall of Pompeii x1 -- new to me
The Road to Canterbury x2
Glen More x1

Downfall was a joy to get to know. It is simple and with some take that, but is also light and fun. I tied in first.

Road to Canterbury was played twice. It proved itself again as a very good game, being smart, interactive and quick - so much so that we played twice. I won the first.

In Glen More I was lagging behind, as a friend was making good use of a tavern and a butcher. Still, in the two last rounds, I made a strong comeback, specially in the last one, when I activated the grocer, an annual fair and sold goods to the market, taking around 20 points in total, and turned the game around, winning by 3 points!


Thursday
Spyrium x1 -- new to me
Warfighter: The Tactical Special Forces Card Game x1
For Sale x1
TransAmerica x1
51st State: Master Set x1 -- new to me

Spyrium is a nicely done game - its flow is good, it gives choices and options to follow. Interaction is there, with the placement of meeples. I liked it. I was beaten badly to a income strategy.

In Warfighter we played against the middle-east milita, in a hostage rescue mission. We struggled for quite a while, but our team worked well enough and we were able to accomplish the mission in the last round, almost in the last roll possible!

For Sale and Transamerica were great as usual. I lost both.

51st State was muuuch easier to learn than I thought it would, as I had a bad experience learning it in its older version. I started with good production cards and was able to use them to great effect, leading the game all the way through the end, finishing in first, with 50 points.

And that was it!

Regards,

Lots of dust being taken out.

Ubongo Extreme - 1 play
First Published 2007
6 years, 11 months, 3 days

Wow. Didn't realized it was all that long. Haven't missed, though - Ubongo is just a frustrating game for me.


Tournay - 1 play
First Published 2011
4 years, 2 months, 2 days

Finally played with all the proper rules - we tried twice, with wrong rules and they were bad experiences. Smart game.


Loopin' Louie - 2 plays
First Published 1992
3 years, 4 months, 16 days

Quite some time, but I did played Looping Chewie.


Bohnanza - 1 play
First Published 1997
1 year, 10 months, 25 days

My favorite Uwe game!


Blueprints - 1 play
First Published 2013
1 year, 9 months, 28 days

For a once or twice in a year game, Blueprints works nicely.


Strasbourg - 1 play
First Published 2011
1 year, 8 months, 14 days

One of my favorite Feld - I adore the auction mechanic of it.


Colt Express - 1 play
First Published 2014
1 year, 3 months, 9 days

It was a fun play. I should be around more.


Stone Age - 1 play
First Published 2008
1 year, 0 months, 10 days

Eh. Not bad.

Regards,

You'll be shocked to discover that on perusal by a classicist the theme was discovered to be just a tad bullshit.

Still fun though.
