Last game of the con. We actually played this after the official closing, starting around 1:00. Played with Alex and some random guy. The start was a little rocky since we hadn't played after our very first con and I hadn't finished reading the rules, but we got through it.

I really liked how it builds up from a short slow first round to massive competition in rounds 3 and 4. I think I would have won (or been very close) if I had won the duel to get the 3 firearms at the very beginning of round 4. But the other guy (who also had the desperado) won it, and then of course he won all the other duels, including with me for the prison and for a ranch, and for building income. Arg! Still really fun.

I have to admit, I don't remember fine details on this one as I played it quite some time ago. I do remember having a great time learning it and wanting to play it again. I like how you work to merge the worker placement component to help you construct some buildings on the map portion of the board. I love heavier games and look forward to delving deeper into this one sometime down the road.

Carson City is one of the newest games to me, but I knew since a long time that I would love it! Action selction, building placement with diffrent effects depending on the location on the grid, but at its core a worker placement with a very interesting twist that matches the theme perfectly! But my only games were with one other player and I’m sure the game reaches its full potential with at least 3 players.

Despite being played once over 5 years ago this game keeps popping up in my mind from time to time as a game I want to play again. Loved the theme. Loved that there was some player conflict. My first game was spent trying to absorb rules and the overall game play. I would like to get more familiar with this one.

Last play before this list: 2012-03-12

First play after this list: -

Collection Status: Keep for a While - High Rotation

Shelf of Shame Game

I love games set in the Old West of America. Yes, the gameplay of Carson City could have centered around any time-era or location, but that does not mean the theme is just pasted on. The American Western theme of Carson City snaps into focus because of two main elements: 1) the "Manifest Destiny" approach to how tiles are placed and 2) the duels that take place.

Now, before I say another word, I would like to acknowledge that duels are highly mythologized aspect of the American Old West history. So, there, I have acknowledged it. Now, let me also say this: If I hear yer yella-bellied mouth a-complainin' about how Carson City ain't "historically ac-cu-rate," well then I'mma fill ya with hot lead in the noonday sun, pilgrim.

Since we have calmly and respectfully noted that Carson City may not be the most historically accurate game, we can now turn our attention to how the game uses its romanticized view of the American Old West to enrich its theme. While playing Carson City you are allowed to buy land anywhere on the map, whether or not you ever use it. This is a very freeing experience and not one that is often seen in board games. Most of the time areas of maps are off-limits until certain requirements are met or until a certain round begins. In Carson City, a player can stake his or her claim wherever they like. This really brings the "Manifest Destiny" ideals of the wild west to the forefront. Similarly, players are allowed to place their workers anywhere they would like on the map, which further emphasizes this thematic element and gives rise to the "duels" that further cement Carson City's feel. Basically, if you place your worker on a spot owned by an opponent, then they can defend themselves via a duel. If the aggressor wins, they take half of the reward provided by the spot, if the defender wins, then the aggressor is driven off the land. If that is not America, then I don't know what is.

What is really exciting about Carson City is that I have just played the base game. There are variants and expansions included in the Big Box that I think will help keep the game fresh for years to come.
