Received the 2nd ed second hand from someone who apparently pre-ordered the game but ended up not needing it. Was very happy to pick it up so quickly as I had thought I preordered it myself long ago but actually didn't.

Played a game with three of my kids today, and it was a blast. Of all the times we've played CoP, we've never played any of the advanced rules, ever. Today we played Sweet Potatoes, the new events, and everything else, and loved it. The wooden bits add a lot to the ambiance, and help to quickly see where you are on the map. Love the deeper colors, and the mounted map.

I came in LAST place! The youngest one at the table got first, which is pretty typical, as he is kind of a shark.

Here is my 16 y/o daughter Erin, as Hiva. She came in 3rd.



Here's George, as Raiatea. He was 2nd.



Here's the winner, Walter on the right, as Tonga.



Here's me, trying to flip our 10' long dining room table after Walter tells me he's coming with his "death star" of warriors to destroy my home island. (He wisely cancelled the attack)

And I'm guessing you don't look much like Kim Jong-il, either.

Of course, I'm not a Polynesian warrior and I don't have Oliver Hazard Perry's eyes...

I love George's reaction to the attempted table flip! Thanks for posting this! I've played a couple of solitaire games of CoP and have enjoyed it.

Missed in all this talk about avatars is that you were able to get your three kids to sit down and play a civ/war game with you. I miss those times. Rarely is it my college age boys will sit and play games anymore.
