R.J. arrived near the conclusion of our Goa game. When it was finished, both Michael and Willerd departed, leaving R.J. and I with some time to occupy before the Shanghai Trader game concluded. After a quick consideration of the options, I decided to introduce him to Atlas & Zeus, Bruno Cathalla’s latest creation.

I described the game in considerable detail in the May 12, 2004 Gaming Session report on the Westbank Gamers website, so I won’t go into further detail here. The game, although quite chaotic, is entertaining. Attempting to arrange the right combination of cards – and hoping that your opponent won’t play a card to spoil that combo – is enjoyable. However, it can also be frustrating if you are saddled with mediocre to poor to useless cards for a turn or two, while your opponent enjoys a powerful hand. Yes, this should even out over the course of the game, but there is no guarantee.

Still, I’m enjoying the game so far. I don’t know if it will have a long shelf-life, but it seems destined to stick around for awhile longer.

After having me on the ropes near the end of the game, I used a well-placed net and a timely tidal surge to eliminate the final three soldiers from R.J.’s army. This earned me the victory and the favor of Atlas.

Ratings: R.J. 7, Greg 6.5
