Sat:
Diamonds
XCOM: The Board Game - We played a few rules incorrectly on this, our first try. Didn't discard Aliens after the defend the base phase and didn't know we could use Nexus ability to move multiple ufo's, only did 1 per turn. Add to this that we couldn't roll a success and needless to say, we got pounded, even in tutorial mode, lol.

This was quite a busy week for gaming!

Monday:

5x 1989: Dawn of Freedom

I really like this game! The factions play much more differently than in TS. I also like the Power Struggles. (And am in the minority with that opinion?)

Thursday:

2x 1989: Dawn of Freedom
1x 1960: The Making of the President

Sunday:

a) with 4 players:

1x Fire in the Lake

We didn't finish the game due to our fifth player arriving. It was quite a long time since our last play, so this partial game was foremost a refresher of the rules & game flow. Hopefully, the next session will be sooner. Really looks promising.

b) with 5 players:

1x A Game of Thrones (1st edition)

I was pleasantly surprised by this game. This was mostly due to some negative remarks from one my gaming buddies regarding the randomness of the supply/muster event cards. This worked out fine, though. This game has many things I really like: simultaneous action selection and alliances & backstabbing. The lack of ports is a flaw, though. I might look into the 2nd edition, because we often are six players.

1x Tomorrow

The theme doesn't offend me at all. I am very sceptic reagrding the balancing of the action cards, strategic cards and major nations. IMO, the game untweaked is broken and doesn't offer any meaningful choices at all.

1x Tales of the Arabian Nights

E 2 players
E I won

I had tremendous luck this time, fulfilling my quest (Contest for Marriage) in just 2 turns and getting 3 additional skills by the end of the 3rd turn (I had 8 in total by the end of the game, with 3 on master level).


Saturday, 28.02.2015

1x Seasons

E First time playing it
E 2 players
E I lost

We played by the beginners' rules and both really enjoyed it.


Sunday, 01.03.2015

1x Lords of Vegas

E 3 players
E I shared victory with another player

I introduced 2 friends of mine to the game, and it was just great.
Half-way through the game, I was in a major lead, so they both traded 2 spaces with big advantages for each of them, but disadvantages for me.
Overall an excellent time playing it, as a lot of power struggles and shifts in power happend during the game, as we all played very aggressively but were also laughing at the same time because of the game's cutthroat mentality and exciting dice rolls.
In the end, one player was closing in to my lead, but the game ended as soon as we were on the same space of the scoring track.


1x Seasons

E 2 players
E I won

This time, we played with the regular drafing phase, which makes this game so much better. As we were still getting familiar with the cards, we played with the medium skill rules (sorting out all cards from 31-50).

As a side note: wow, this game has some of the nastiest cards I have every seen in any game. Once I get this game for my own collection, I might have to sort some cards out in order to not ruin the fun for some players.

Not much time for board games, recently. Will try to change that for the coming weeks.

Eldritch Horror - 2 player game. Ended up with 6 dead investigators, 1 awakened Cthulhu and an empty mythos deck. Highlight was rolling eight dice on a strength test and failing. Lots of fun though.

Space Alert - A bit like drinking from a fire hose, but the game owner had played before so it wasn't bad to learn. However, it is apparently NOT helpful to shoot aimlessly into space before the threat actually arrives, or to forget to add more power to the guns. (We obviously did not have our coop A game with us this week.)

Boss Monster: The Dungeon Building Card Game - Light, quick fun as usual.

Heroes Wanted x 1

Learning game--wish I had time to learn it before breaking it out, but have just been too busy. Thankfully my gaming group is patient enough to walk through a game together. I can see how some people wouldn't like the game, and there's validity to the critique of it being repetitive, but our group is a social one and we loved the quirks and the humor/charm. Will try it again, I'm sure.

Harbour feels like a short, small Le Havre.
Sheriff of Nottingham thursday night we had a blast trying to convince the sheriff to look at others bags, not our own; bribes were aplenty.

Farmers Market Sunday a quick 90 mins playtest with the State Fair cards thrown in; worked nicely; might be too long still.

Duck Dealer Sunday Night

Yes, that is black ahead by 50 points, and it stayed that way the rest of the game; I was green. The winner enjoyed it enough to say, we need to play it again, which is not normal for an average game for him, so it sparked a wow factor somewhere in him. Personally, it played a lot better this time than back in 2009. Not sure why, but it wasn't as dry feeling this time. Splotter spiel get a lot of flak for this one, but theme-aside, it is a good interesting 2-3 hour game. No one was able to break it, so that was good (some threads indicate the possibility).

We taught Blokus and Ticket to Ride to some friends on Saturday. I had hoped to get to a second game of Ticket to Ride or maybe a Takenoko, but it was getting late and people were tired.
