Yeah, I'm really happy that one of my gaming buddies really enjoys strategic 2-player games and we play quite competitively in addition to the meetings with our regular Saturday group.

This week, he should receive his copy of 1989: Dawn of Freedom, which we will try out this Thursday. These duels really itched me for some heavier wargames to play with him (he's looking forward to that too ) so that's why I jumped in the P500 of Paths to Glory and will also get Empire of the Sun when it gets reprinted in May. Add War of the Ring, Washington's War and Labyrinth: War on Terror to the mix, and that should be a great summer regarding gaming!

Fortunately, just last week, I found a german online shop which had one copy of 1960: The Making of the President left in stock, for only 43€!

Almost the same here. We have a group meeting almost every week and one member of our group also comes over to my place once a week to play Mage Wars Arena or the last few weeks Gears of War: The Board Game. Or any other game of course.

I think it's really cool to have these 2 player games too. And I also play a lot solo too.

Saturday, one game of Runebound (Second Edition) with my girlfriend.

I don't remember having so many bad roll as in this game.
I was needed a 4 and was able to roll only 3, that happen on almost every fight, I die 3 times and my girlfriend 0.

She won the game, but that was real fun, it was a long time since we played a game together.

The only expansion needed! Or in other words... it's necessary. It transforms a good game into a fantastic one! The other expansions are not needed. Not at all.

Scoville - First play, and really enjoyed it. Quick to learn the mechanics, but the art and mechanics look lighter than the game actually is (in a good way). I think we'll be able to get our more casual gamer friends into this one. Great components.
Le Havre - We finally got to introduce this to some friends; up to this point we've only played 2 player. We played the shortened version with 4 players and it went over really well. This is one of my favorite games, and it was so neat to see how it played with 4.
Dominion- Base set for old time's sake.
Viticulture - First play. Gorgeous components, elegant mechanics, great theme. This has shot up into my short list of favorites and I am definitely going to pick up the expansion. This is another game I think our more casual gamer friends would be able to get into. Plus it goes well with wine.

Friday:
Dominion w/ Dominion: Prosperity x 1
Stone Age x 1

Saturday:
Sheriff of Nottingham x 1
Firefly: The Game x 1

First try at Sheriff of Nottingham for us--worked even better than I'd imagined, and laughed harder than I can remember in a long time. I was a bit skeptical at first, especially with all the hype, but now you can count me as a convert.

First time trying Firefly: The Game with 5 players, and I don't think I'll ever do that again. The footprint was so massive we had to play it on the floor, which made things (knees, backs, elbows) very uncomfortable. We wrapped up after 3-4 hours with a clear leader but no game finish.

Thursday
Red7 x4

Friday
Xia: Legends of s Drift System
Alien Frontiers + Expansions
Harbour

Saturday
Space Hulk

The highlights were kicking off a new game group at work and managing to cross two games off of our 'Must Play' list in Xia and Space Hulk. Xia as it turns out was everything we could have hoped for (and more!); but we didn't like Space Hulk as much as games like Claustrophobia or X-Wing.

All in all a light, but solid, week of gaming!

Nothing.

My copy of Sheriff of Nottingham arrived though, so I played Shuffle Madness for about 15 minutes (217 cards).

So true. Although I don't play Catan anymore, it's still one of the best expansions: small additions with very deep impact. Seafarers opened up and freed Catan.
The other expansions tried to transform the game into something else and more complex, which Catan simply is not (and not meant to be).

I also feel like playing Dominion again.
