Always tense. I like it with 4 as well as 5. Dropping a couple of territories can change the game a bit especially if they are both camel provinces.

This is a reprint of a game that any serious fan of Knizia simply cannot miss, and those designing Eurogames-style titles today would do well to look at how this game incorporates unique mechanics, a meaningful theme and player interaction into its strategic gameplay.

Already the third Reiner Knizia game on the list. I really like his classic games and this one isn't even the last one on the list. When I am with five players I will probably suggest to play this game. It is a really easy game with some nice depth. Auctioning of the different provinces is a nice struggle to get the piece of land you want and since they are mostly different they can really determine what will be your strategy during the game.

After that auction you have to decide where you want to spend the rest of your money on. Do you want pyramids that give you points or farmers that will make you more money or will you go for some cards that might give you certain benefits, but they can also be useless for your strategy.

After spending lots of money there is also a round of offering. How much do you offer to the gods? It can give you some great bonuses if you give the most, but others might benefit even more since the offers are also tied to the income farmers provide and even how many points temples give.

It is such an easy game to play but you have some nice decisions to make about how you will spend your money while also keeping enough for future plans. I'm only sad to see it plays best with five.

Update: Knizia's games will most likely continue to climb, provided I don't play any more new games.

Money management is the key to winning this pyramid-inspired auction game.

Yet another Knizia. This one has interesting bidding, as players who are outbid can choose another spot to bid for. Also, there's a reset in the middle of the game where holdings are reset. Looks interesting; this one is near the top in terms of priority.

The Resistance: Avalon

Pi mal Pflaumen
Parade
La Granja: No Siesta
Keyflower
Joraku NEW!
Dia de los Muertos NEW!
Clank! NEW!
Amun-Re NEW!

Games with Grace this past weekend! And plenty of new titles.

While not totally new to me (I'd played a few times with the solo rules), I finally got to try La Granja: No Siesta with other players. It's a very pleasant, though largely solo, experience. The dice selection ported over from the base game is neat and it's fun to figure out where to allocate your resources. As Grace mentioned, I'm not sure how difficult it is to do poorly in the game: once you get a few helpers available pretty much every resource is going to be useful in some way, and outside of jockying for completion of carts there aren't a whole lot of spots for players to rub up against each other.

Still, for a roll-and-write (I'm with Grace in calling this the year of the roll-and-write, between this, the Space Invaders dice game Raf played, and the teases from Matt Riddle about the upcoming Fleet Dice Game on Twitter) it wasn't a bad experience. I definitely want to try the game with the advanced Helper pool, though I'm not sure how much that'll change things.

I'd been meaning to try Joraku after Grace recommended it to me, and it was a fairly solid trick-taker with some area-majority stuff going on. I like that players can choose to either place pieces in the area of the map corresponding to the number of the card they played OR use the number as a bunch of action points to shuffle things around. The one issue we found was that Ninja cards were nearly useless at the end of the game, especially if you messed up like Matt (Grace's husband) did and over-value the right-hand side of the map too early. I'm not sure this necessarily needs any house-rules or just a better grasp of the game, but it was an interesting amalgam and one I was happy to try.

I also got a chance to try the new hotness out in Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure, which was a well-put-together design. I thought the push-your-luck mechanism was fun and very well integrated and balanced (I was definitely playing with Deep Sea Adventure in mind and was very risk averse, but I could have loosened up and played more dangerously and probably could have done better). The deck-building mechanic reminded me of Thunderstone in that there wasn't really a lot of deck-pruning, but it still worked for the length of time the game took. This wasn't one I was actively looking forward to, but the buzz on the GCL made me curious, and I'm glad I took a look. Won't say no to it, but may not ask for it.

Dia de los Muertos was a decent enough trick taker with some truly AWFUL graphic design. It was so hard to play for how difficult the icons were to see and how hard to determine the game state was, but once I got the hang of most of it it seemed to work out OK. It's got the Chronicle thing going on of potentially having players with uneven amounts of cards in-hand (and the end of the hand being when someone is out of cards), and also the card powers that let you take a card out of the trick prior to it's resolution. Each card is worth between -1 to 2 points, and the goal is to have the most points after a certain number of rounds.

I think this game might be pretty decent if it weren't for the crap-tastic design choices (the art was lovely and evocative, but the rest not so much), but as it is it's hard to recommend.

And finally, I got my newly acquired re-print of Amun-Re to the table. Despite being done by Tasty Minstrel (long may their mediocrity reign), the fact that it was a Knizia design and a well-regarded one at that boded well. However, we apparently played with an actively bad player count (despite supposedly scaling with the players, most of the consensus on the geek was that it was worthless at 3P and only really started to shine with more). We found it largely to be the case and, despite some of it being promising, we were less than enthused.

It's oddly opaque for a Knizia design, with a lot of disparate elements that aren't easy to grasp the first time through. With only 3p the vast majority of the special scoring cards were either dead-on-arrival or next to impossible to fulfill, and we weren't familiar enough with the game to really make use of the auction mechanic to it's full potential. I think this game may actually be quite good, but we certainly had enough bad things going for us that it didn't impress the first go-around. I'm hoping to get it back to the table with more players soon, but the outlook isn't good. The TMG curse may have struck again.
