Another light week of gaming due to my work week and Saturday running plans...

Tuesday
1x - Amerigo - mb

Thursday
1x - La Granja - mb

Sunday
1x - Five Tribes - mb


Not a whole lot of gaming, but that which I did manage were quality games counting towards my 10x10 list. I worked long hours during the week and on Saturday my oldest daughter and I ran a 10K trail race in preparation for our upcoming Tough Mudder.

meeple Keep playing...

I played 9 games of Lost Cities (won only 4), 2 games of TTR: Europe (came 2nd in both); 3 games of KoT (didn't win, but went out on my shield); Several rounds of Spyfall (don't recall winning); and one game of Fury of Dracula (played Drac; I lost, but only because I was going easy on some newbie players so was more of a DM than an actual combatant).

In short: Despite not really winning anything, I'm claiming absolute victory, because the reason so many games got played is that the family were up for the Easter holidays and several new acolytes have been created.

Sentinels of the Multiverse
Tried out a newly-made custom hero deck, The Ant. He was teamed up with Mr. Fixer, Unity, and Captain Cosmic vs Plague Rat in Temple of Zhu Long. Turned out to be quite an effective team & a relatively benign environment. Easy win for this team. Capt. Cosmice got a couple of good constructs on Mr. Fixer that sent his base poser into overdrive (The Dragon showed up and was eliminated by a serious nemesis beat-down before he could do much of anything). Even with Plague Rat being immune to The Ant's toxic attacks most of the game, he still got whittle down quickly. It helped that the Infect cards all happened to shuffle at the bottom of his deck.

Viticulture
\A good, tight 3p game. This one was unusual for our group in that we leaned much less on visitor cards for VPs and actually did many wine deliveries. I know my own draws favored that and I was able to build up a good wine-making engine that filled my orders without too much struggle. I still came in second though.

Nothing.

Closest I got was breaking out my copy of Amasser Dragons, and trying to learn how to play it. So going through the rules, setting things up for reference, perhaps even playing a "solitaire game", and consulting BGG for any issues.

However, I didn't have a clear table to play this on, and I don't recall when the last time I vacuumed was yuk, so using the floor was out too. Clearing off the table lead to a whole bunch of dusting and general spring cleaning. We're still not done.. not by a long shot soblue, but at least we have table space now!


(on a related note, when I typed in "ammasser" in the search box, how was it I didn't get that game returned as the first search result It's showing up as the only result now, so I guess BGG.com does learn?)

Not a lot of playing this week.
Just a scenario of Arab-Israeli Wars.

Been working on a big print and play project though.

I also played this, but it didn't get me. We played co-op. And even in a medium hard senario it was too easy.

Adrenaline (New)
Memoir '44
Lanterns: The Harvest Festival
Roll Player (New)

Roll player was better than I expected and probably one of the better dice games I've played in a while.

Adrenaline on the other hand was a huge let down. The game went on for 2 hours after a half hour rules explaination. I made the mistake of going after a few similar weapons...But I don't think I should be punished for wanting to focus on close combat, considering that's what I thought the game was about. I really never got that fps feeling like I've heard so many others have.
