those 8 were all that we played, good night too. Iliade was great I'd like to go at that again.

I like the games I win also

I will bring it again on Monday. Now that we know how it is played, we can sabotage your PASS/PLAY strategy by making sure everyone is above 6 points so you eat the negative. I will be the lead negotiater for the truce necessary to hasten your downfall.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I would like another crack at a lot of the new games we learned. Then I can maybe improve... and actually develop a strategy.

Hmmm, I think you have already been very successful. We would hate for you to develop a strategy - we are having too hard of a time keeping up when you are new to the game.

I had a request for Die Macher this Monday. You are welcome to join in. It will be a new game for everyone including me. It is a long game that would preclude any other long game.

I will bring Caylus, Power Grid and Iliad. I might be able to fit in a game of Iliad but, Caylus and Power Grid will have to be run seperate from Die Macher.

I have eaten some Netrunner counters, a treasure token from Nemo's War, and a First Martians condition token. Also maybe a Fallout "L" token.

Sorry to butt in, and I know this is a long shot, but Edwardsville is a small place, so... do any of you know Beth Carter? She would be about 36 now. If so, please GM me. I knew her way back when and was trying to see what she's been up to.

Dear stalker,

I'm only 32 and the name doesn't ring a bell, but I'll ask the guys tonight as a couple of them are a little older than me.

Brian and the others played Carcassonne also, although I'm not sure what expansions were in effect.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I heard you guys talking about this thread, so I decided to find it.

For the record, I am happy to play wargames as long as someone is willing to teach. And my friend Chris is a huge Axis & Allies geek, so he would be a prime candidate to play a new war game.

And I refuse to accept the moniker "Caylus professional." That belongs to the guys on BSW who routinely kicked my butt when I played it there.

I'm looking forward to Die Macher next Monday, Mike. So please bring it again.

I wonder if we can talk Chris and Sean into playing again...it would be tough but I'd like it if we didn't have to re-teach this one. Is Chris even going to make it again?

Die Macher! I wanted to play it last Monday, can I play pweese? I had so much homework it made me angry that I had to miss Monday, but I will be there this next Monday.

Sean said he wasn't sure if he wanted to play again, so I'm pretty sure you could have his spot.

Chris will not be there this week. His work schedule generally will allow him to come every other week, though not until 7:30 or so the weeks he does join us.

I'll play again. I bet it will go much smoother the second time around now that we got the rules down. So we can be minus Chris but plus Wes then we only have to teach one player.

Mike, do you remember any of the scores for Zooloretto? I forgot to take note of them...and don't try to tell me you won either.

Nope I didn't win. I thought I came in second in the upper 20's. Brian won with 30 some points. I can't remember more than that.

Games Played: 10/06/08

1) Die Macher
2) Zooloretto
3) 10 Days in Europe x2
4) Bolide
5) Colosseum

Great game of Die Macher. I had complete control of the game until the fickle voters no longer agreed with my obviously superior platform (around the 4/5th election). By the end, I was hopelessly relegated to a minor nuisance. Nice win Will!

Next time we play I want to be the Nazi party. Complete control of all media and severe penalties for any other party attempting to change public opinion.

I agree and I stand by the thoughts that the bad choices I made at the beginning of the game were due to my inexperience....right?

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
Thanks. I owe my victory to the fact that all of your early hate of me in the game made you think I couldn't come back. As a result I snuck back up on you.

Yes, Wes, inexperience killed you. Because after playing one more game, we obviously know exactly what we are doing.

Seriously, i am convinced that there is a fair amount of luck in the game. So even good choices can only mitigate so much of the bad luck. Mike would be Exhibit 1 for that fact.

Actually, I needed to be more careful in the beginning. It wasn't bad luck - it was lack of knowledge of the opinion/platform card counts. I was bitching about not being able to get the cards I needed when in actuality most were already in play. I didn't realize how few of each opinion there were. I was close to a 1 in 20 chance of drawing a highly useful card and couldn't mitigate those odds with Shadow Cabinet / Media Tokens because of my early aggressive play. I suspect that will always be the case with 5 players. 1 or 2 will get shut out of the end game.

Damn, now I don't even have an excuse. shake

Monsters Menance Tokyo - I will try that one. Hopefully it has a mechanic that allows me to make your population a little tastier than mine.
