Last night my wife and I had our neighbors Nick and Anne over for dinner for the first time. After eating we got to talking about games and before they knew it, I'd pulled out our copy of "Condottiere" and off we went. They loved the game and it is SUCH a great game. The game lasted only two rounds and was hard fought with Nick winning in the end. I came in last - not an unusual fate for me in this game. I lent my copy of "Rome" to them when they left because I'm sure they'll love the chariot racing game. Two new friends and gamers in the making.
