Ballard GW. Probably passed up by many of you because it was $20. Looked interesting and figured it would balance out my other bargains.

An earlier Stefan Feld design and part of the Alea line of games. I haven't played in probably close to ten years, but I remember it being nasty, regularly pounding the players.

Game Condition:

This game has been played twice. All components are accounted for (cards, person tiles, palace floors, coins, rice & fireworks tiles, event tiles, privilege cards and dragons). Components are in good to very good condition. Rules are in good to very good condition.

Insert is in very good shape.

The game board is in decent shape. It does seem a bit warped (about 1/16 of an inch), but then every ItYofD board I've seen is warped in some manner.

I will include in this trade the original ItYotD game board. It's more warped than the new one in the game box. But, it's good for a backup.

Game comes from a non-smoking house.

Box Condition:

The game box top is slightly damaged. There is an indentation (about 1/32 of an inch) running down the left side of the box top parallel to the left side (say about 1/2 inch away). There is no major damage, but it is noticeable. Damage happened during shipping (poor box packing). The rest of the box has the usual small dings plus wear and tear at the box corners. This copy of the game is almost 10 years old.

Language/Edition Info:

Rio Grande Games edition from 2007. English-language rules and components (mostly the rules and game box).

Shipping:

Free shipping within the U.S.

I have quite a few games tied at 14 plays, so I picked one at random to talk about.

How many plays? 14 times, between 2007 and 2016. I enjoy this game quite a bit, and in fact it's my second favorite design by Feld.

What do I like? This is not a "point salad" game, in my opinion. Rather, it's a "survive the best you can" game in which you know that many of the various characters in your kingdom will die; the question is how many, and which ones those will be.

Why only 100th? It's not one of my very favorite games, so I rarely actively push for it, and others rarely suggest it. I have only played it once since 2011. Joe Huber also enjoys it, so I should try to get into games of it that he organizes.

Έκδοση: Γερμανική (Im Jahr des Drachen), καμία γλωσσική εξάρτηση ωστόσο.

Κατάσταση: Φέρει αρκετό selfwear, αλλά τα περιεχόμενα είναι σε πολύ καλή κατάσταση και σε σακουλάκια.

ΠΡΟΣΟΧΗ:
Το παιχνίδι βρίσκεται Γερμανία και θα κατέβει Ελλάδα μαζί μου τέλη Ιουλίου. Αν δεν είστε διατεθειμένοι να περιμένετε, παρακαλώ ΜΗΝ το σταυρώσετε. Να το στείλω από δω νωρίτερα δεν παίζει. Peace.

In the Year of the Dragon - I picked this up earlier this month when I stopped into an FLGS while on a family trip. I'm a big Stefan Feld fan, so I was thrilled to see that the reprint was on the shelves. I've only played this one time, with 4 players, but I really, really enjoyed it. It's seriously punishing and difficult, but we were all in the right mood and had a really good time with it. The strategy is pretty variable, just because the events are random. I'm hoping to get to play this more in the future. I was very encouraged by how much the people I played with seemed to enjoy it.
Rating: 8

Ethnos - Ethnos has had a lot of buzz lately, and I like Paolo Mori, so I was keen to give it a shot when I got the chance. We played a 6 player game, and the game really plays quickly. The different races are... Maybe not very thematic, but they are interesting. The turns are so fast that we actually got ahead of ourselves a couple of times and almost lost our places. I love that there are so many races in the box, and I'm curious about how the others play. I'm pretty seriously disappointed in the art and design, especially given that it's a CMON game, who usually have great productions. The board art is notoriously boring, but that's not that big of a deal. I was more disappointed in the plastic tokens, which were kind of difficult for everyone to handle and stack. The game is solid, though, and I would happily play it again.
Rating: 7.5

Crisis - I've been curious about Crisis since I first started hearing about it. I don't know how I missed it on kickstarter, but I'm kind of sorry I did. It's really a pretty simple worker placement game that models the mechanism sort of like Carson City (or Caylus?) where you place your workers in whatever order you want, but then the actions are resolved in a fixed order. The strategy isn't too difficult to grasp. I found myself cursing the other players frequently, which I often think is a sign of a game I'm enjoying. I've only played it once, and I definitely want to play it again.
Rating: 7

Asgard - I picked up Asgard for $10 a year or two ago before I really knew anything about the publisher. Since then, I've played several What's Your Game? games and it upped my enthusiasm for trying Asgard. Our first play... Did not go very well. There's a lot about the game that I found interesting, and I definitely want to play it again, because I don't think my first impression was very accurate. Everyone at the table tried to do a little of everything from the start of the game, and it kind of crippled us. We spent the whole game basically having 2 or 3 actions each round, and it felt very difficult to get anything done. I can think of ways to possibly improve our strategy, though, and I think future plays will be better. Hopefully, I'll be able to get it played again to give it a fair shake.
Rating: 6.5

DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Rivals – Batman vs The Joker - Batman vs Joker is a decent head-to-head deckbuilding game. It lasted a little longer than I would like, but maybe that will get shaved down as we play it more. It's probably not as good as Star Realms, but there are some things I like better. The idea of winning by (essentially) buying increasingly high value cards from your opponent is pretty cool and focuses on building a big turn engine, rather than whittling your opponent's score down. It also does away with those annoying health tracker cards that you need for Star Realms. I do like the Batman theme over the generic space theme, too. All that said, I think I would almost always choose to play a different 2 player game. It's working very well for me as a gateway game for my new little brother, though, so it will probably see the table periodically.

In the Year of the Dragon
This Feld was new to me, and I adored it. Nice game length, allows for planning, has a fair amount of player interaction, simple rules, highly replayable - a keeper. We had two tables play back to back on Wednesday.

1841
4P on Thursday, third play with this group, first time with every rule correct. I had some fun adjusting current market values to get the highest sum possible when merging, to rush late game while I was ahead. We didn't have time to finish, but there's still lots of local interest to play 1841 again. It's got legs.


(Leonardo DiCatrio carefully sidestepped all components en route to my lap).

A Feast for Odin
In honor of Mikko's long suffering trying to acquire this game I finally played my copy. It was a multiplayer solitaire pleasurefest. Picking a strategy required a leap of faith and I chose to get into whaling, and eventually built three whaling boats loaded with extra ore. The randomness from dice and weapons cards was easily mitigated; similarly to any expedition, sufficient preparation could ensure the endeavor was successful. However one could go raiding, hunting, etc, ill prepared and get lucky if they chose to take the risk. A Feast for Odin reminds me of Le Havre somewhat because they both require players to pivot from engine building to cashing in for end game points, and I enjoyed timing that. I ignored the occupation cards except for their points, and generally feel they are the weakest part of the game, but can see how they were added to give players some direction if they needed it. A game for Uwe fans.

I also played the new Jaipur app a couple dozen times, and got my elo up to 615 - but then the app kept freezing and I became so frustrated that I uninstalled it. Up until it's fateful end, I took joy starving my opponents from camels and victories. /evil laugh

Saturday night after the family left I started reading the rules and set up in the ballroom and got lucky enough to play with 3 really nice people, two of whom had played it before several times. The gameplay flowed really smoothly, and it really didn't take long at all, especially for a tricky Feld game.

I concentrated probably a bit too much on just meeting the events and didn't get enough points towards the endgame, even though I was in second for most of the game. Ended up coming in last but I really enjoyed the experience. I confirmed with them that it does play very differently (and surprisingly, perhaps, much meaner or tougher) with 2 people vs 4 or even 3. So it would probably only come out with 4 or at least 3 at home.
