I, BagpipeDan, am here to inform you that this change of avatar is a temporary tribute to another spectacular Martin Wallace game that none of my friends like, but when I finish my horrible photoshop project (I am very bad at this sort of thing) I will hopefully have a new and improved avatar resembling my old one but being far more interesting.

And when I give up on that it'll be back to the Dutch Infantry marker from Struggle of Empires

Thank you for your patience.

Struggle of Empires: A+
Perikles: Solid A
Tempus: A+

Those are the games nobody else likes

Then there's A+ Runebound

I want to try Byzantium (which I think I'd love) and Age of Steam (which I might love) but I am fairly confident nobody else I play with will like them, so I can't justify the purchase.

I am pre-ordering Liberte, though. Very excited about that.

Yea yea, I know. I wasn't guessing those as his avatar just throwing out Wallace games. I think it was a fairly safe bet that wasn't a big choo choo, although if you squint... nope, not a choo choo.

I still need to take the shrink wrap off.

Off Perikles, not BagpipeDan. You only get rewarded for good behavior.

Oh yeah, Struggle of Empires is amazing. I actually enjoy it with any number. I played it with 2 for the longest time, in fact, and really enjoyed it.

Struggle is amazing, bloody amazing. One of the best games I have. But I prefer Age Of Steam, I belive that has to be Wallace's best work to date.

Yeap, Struggle is worth $40 on ebay. Oh yes, it is worth it. Precioussssssssssssssssss.

I don't get it. All this Struggle of Empires love. And I can't get one game in with even one other person. This is a crime. A shame.

My sad Age of Steam story....

So I bought AOS and was all excited to play it. Gathered my Aunt, Uncle and Wife. The wife and I busted out by turn 3. She was furious with the game and got up and left. I stayed behind and "played" the rest of the game even though I was technically eliminated. AOS is a fantastic game but can be unforgiving on new players. She has not played it since. My aunt, uncle and I have played a bunch of 3 player games. OTOH she does like Power Grid quite a bit.

Probably not... I blame Aldie for not implementing it correctly.
