My Rating: 9.75

Thoughts:

I fully admit to being a Star Trek fan, and that the love of Trek colors my opinion of this game. I'm not a dress-up-and-pretend-I'm-a-borg fan, or even a go-to-conventions fan, but rather a sober, cerebral fan who celebrates the science fiction masterpiece that is Star Trek.

Anyway - why is this game awesome? Because it feels like a season of Star Trek. I'm not the first person to say that, and it's probably not an original thought. But really, after a game is done, I think about all the places that I explored...The flavor of the encounter cards create fantastic stories that draw me into the Star Trek universe. Sometimes it's just nostalgia - remembering watching the Tribbles episode with my dad as a kid, and now I just transported them onto his klingon cruiser! How fun is that???

There's luck with die rolls to be sure, but smart card play can often mitigate that luck. My Enterprise might be outgunned by a couple of romulan warbirds, but oh wait - I self destructed my ship and took two of you out with me! Take that Romulan scum!

Seriously, this game just creates stories that I love. Maybe you have to be a Star Trek fan, but who cares. I'm doing an awful job explaining exactly what it is that makes this one of my favorite games of all time, and I've barely talked about any of the game mechanics...But all I know is that I sit through the game with a stupid grin on my face. I'm not excited about all the strategic possibilities, I just love being part of the experience, whether I win or lose horribly which, to me, is a requirement of a truly exceptional game.

Star Trek: Fleet Captains is truly exceptional.

How does it play with two? This game is absolutely best with two players. If I had to, I'd play with 4 (two teams of two). With the romulan expansion, I played with three and HATED it. One person can just do what they want while the other two are duking it out, and it's just silly.

Best game of 2011

I know I bugged you about doing this one at some point. I played it a dozen or so times when I got it but it hasn't hit the table in the last few years unfortunately - and I still haven't played the Dominion expansion that sits upon my shelf! However, its an incredible and annoying game all at the same time - so so messy in many ways and yet so so much fun.

Complete, played once. Cards are sleeved but I can't remember what brand, the sleeves are nice, it might be FFG brand sleeves. An issue with this game (at least at launch) was that a lot of the ship's dial clicks were too hard or too soft to turn, this is still the case. This is a manufacturing issue, there's no problem other than it might be hard to turn the dial when needed. Smoke free home

Shipping: Lower 48 only.

Unplayed. Minis in excellent condition. Missing one card. Sleeved and comes with the fan-made Borg expansion.

Shipping from the US. If you want it shipped outside the US then I will need help with the shipping.


Note: while the winners of most of the other games on this list will be selected on or around Dec. 20th, the lucky winner of this game will be selected on Dec. 15th.

Let's find out who the winner is
I will roll 1d18. The first reply will correspond to a "1". The second to a "2" and so on. I will skip over DearVienna's post. Good luck to everyone.
1d18 = (12) = 12

The Week That Was


Rating: 9
Plays: 1

Poor weather and office parties conspired to kill game night this week. However, my wife seeing my dejection offered to play Star Trek with me. Out of character, Nicole opted for the Klingons and actually got the warriors to complete a few science missions before nearly destroying the poor Reliant. If she had not been held up with a trade encounter at a wormhole, she would have finished me off and won the game. As it turned out, I won on the next turn successfully scanning a dark nebula thanks to the help of Mr. Barclay.

Final score 10-9.

EDITED to close parenthesis.

I know I'm in the minority here, but with every new Star Wars game that hits the hotlist and gets bogged down in tons of hype, I think about how good this game is and how much earlier it was released. People went berserk about the hex tiles, but in today's miniature-heavy market, I'm guessing we would not have to look too hard to find a few games with good minis and thin cardboard components. I just read this exact comment about Blood Rage, though I have not played it. I've been trying hard to get this one back to the table. When we first played, I even created a Pandora station to accompany this game. I've only played it twice, and not since 2-12.

Haiku entry

Archer Kirk Picard
Captains of the Enterprise
Seek and discover


I enjoy playing games of all types. I a currently playing more games lately that can be played solo, whether they are a specific solo game, Coop game, or a game that has an official or unofficial solo variant. The reason for this, is no one to play with.

I actually would be happy with any game that has positive reviews. Typically a rating of 6.5 or greater. Or an expansion for any game I currently have.

My wife bought me two thrift games: Polygon and About Time. Recently she brought Blokus home (.99 cents) I enjoyed all of these games. Neither one of those game would ever be on my want lists because they are so obscure or in Blokus case just really had never hit my radar I had no knowledge of them. What made me real happy about those games was they were only $2 each. I like getting Thrifted items. Just two examples of it does not have to be on my want list to make me happy.


I am a Star Trek fan so anything with a Star Trek theme is always a plus. It doesn't even have to be a Star Trek game. I am more of a fan of the Original Series than the newer ones.

But any SciFi theme seems to work for me.

So overall my wants in trade and wish lists are always a good choice to start but for me any good game will also be a good choice. But do not look at wish list 5. Those are not my wish list but the person I am secret Santa for.

Games that you are currently enjoying (and why you like them). In no particular order.

1)Fire Fly - The Board Game, I have been playing it solo, and my kids enjoy it. I like the theme, quality of the game and that there are several different actions you have to take to win.
2) Agricola - My wife likes the game. Has an easy and advance rules so you can start out easy and then move to advance which makes easier to learn. Play time is good.
3) Munchkins, any of the variations - It is just fun and silly with the right group. My kids love it. A good game to introduce other kids too. Play time of 45 - 60 minutes which is nice.
4) Eclipse: Multiple ways to win, it takes 2 - 3 hours to play but it sure does not seem like it takes that long. I consider that a bonus that there is not a lot of down time as you wait your turn. I also like that there is some battles in the game, but not the # 1 focus.
5) The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game- It can be played solo, I enjoy fantasy theme. Also they have some monthly challenges starting up this month with this game.
7) 7 Wonders - I like the quick play of the game and that everyone does something every turn. It keeps me engaged.
8) Dominion - Deck Building games are fun, I have a couple other I enjoy too.
9) Star Wars Armada: COOL miniatures, good game play. Multiple level of rules, so you start at the beginning rules and then add more layers and depth to the game as you play. The only thing I don't like about it is the cost.


Games you have seen more than once on the thrift lists you want.
Rare finds that have been thrifted but I would have about a 0 chance in receiving.
1) Star Trek - Fleet Captains a rare find.


Games that are in reality thrifted more often.
1) Any Munchkin expansion I do not have.
2) Dixit
3) B-17: Queen of the Skies - This would be an awesome find.
4) Ticket to Rides, except the first one, Marklin, Switzerland and Indian maps which I have.
5) Expansions to any game I have.

But to make your life easier Thrifty Santa.


Things you like in games.
Wow this is a tough one. So far if it has a rating of 6.5 or higher I am overall happy. Games less than that I am often happy too, just not as often. I have also like games under that rating too. Now if I had unlimited time, decided what game to play and people to play with I would generally prefer:
1) War games
2) SciFi Games
3) Awesome game components
4) Generally 2 hours or less.
5) A game that is just as good with 2 people as with 4 people.
6) Moderate comlexity

What is your favorite style of game?

I have not found one yet. Depends on my mood. So anything goes.


Least favorite style of game?
Winning by pure luck, unless it happens to be Mega Millions or Power Ball.

How much do you like: Ameritrash, Eurogames, Family, Party, War, or Strategy games?

I like them all. Just depends on the mood. I actually usually let other people pick the game. This way I don't get stuck into one type of game.

Do you play games with children? If so, what ages?
Ages 14-18. My two youngest like, Munchkin, Fluxx. Hex Hex, 7 Wonders

Anything else you enjoy or think would help Santa find the right gift for you.
Secret Santa: The right gift would be something you thrifted or don't want and that is now under my Christmas Tree. I am just excited to try something new. Also I welcome any expansions to games I have.

I am also looking at getting into miniature painting, starting with some of my Star Wars Armada fighters.
