Not the best week, but I still got to play some games I really like

On Monday, GF and I continued our attempts to beat T.I.M.E Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons. We played three runs and only made some progress in the last one. On Friday, we played it one more time and finally finished the scenario. I definitely didn't like this one as much as I liked the previous two but, after some frustration, we still had a good time

On Saturday, we played Agricola. I always enjoy this one. I made a few bad plays, but still won 43 to 19. GF still likes the game, but she gets a bit frustrated when she doesn't get any strong combos in her cards.

On Sunday, she wasn't feeling too well. But I still wanted to play a game, so I played the Barbados map from Age of Steam Expansion: Barbados / St. Lucia solitaire. It was my second play, and I won with 30 points. I thought I did okay, but it appears that other people are getting double that, so I guess I still suck I made some pretty big deliveries in the last few turns, though, so it was quite enjoyable.

4 x Onirim (second edition)
4 x Codenames
1 x Sheriff of Nottingham
1 x King of Tokyo
1 x Arboretum
1 x The Oregon Trail Card Game

We had a fun time on Saturday night playing most of these games. However on the first turn of The Oregon Trail killed me. Despite the constant rules discussion and the random "you died" cards, this game was the most popular game of the night with the exception of Codenames for my brother in law.

Arboretum continues to be one of my favorites, but teaching that game to new players is nearly impossible. So far 3 of 3 new players have misinterpreted the rules three completely separate ways. I need to learn how to better teach this game.

Harbour

Saturday
Harbour

Sunday
Harbour
San Juan (second edition)

These were our first few games of Harbour and we both liked it. In the third game there was a bunch of crappy starting cards, so it took a little while to get things moving, but other than that it was fun. I can see how the market fluctuations might be frustrating in a 3-4 player game, but with 2 players it's totally manageable.

Also of note regarding the massive amount of Star Realm play-- it's become one of my mother's favorite games and I asked why, hoping to grab insight for the next few games that I buy.

Her response: "It's a little like shopping."
