6 is great. But be warned, the bulk of the gamers won't arrive until around 6:30.

Can't believe I missed Galaxy Trucker. We need a new rule - no new games when I am on vaction.

Don't worry, I have a feeling somebody in our group is getting Galaxy Trucker for Christmas.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
As I was driving home the other night I realized that I had forgotten to say a proper 'goodbye' to Sean and felt really bad about it.

So please forgive me Sean...the amount of time I got to game with you was way too short, and I'm sorry for all the jabs I made about your chosen profession. Congratulations and good luck with everything!

Through the Ages was so good I almost don't regret the fact that I won't get to play Indonesia for a month.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I think you accidentally put Colloseum x2 instead of Through the Ages x2...the only other game I saw played was Galaxy Trucker, but I don't know if there was something else before I got there or not.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
Through the Ages was quite the game. I would really like to give that one another shot. Adam, I read up on Indonesia and it sounds interesting, count me in for a play on a week I am there.

It made it to the top of my list also. I would love to do the full game if we could find the 3+ hour time slot.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
That's saying a lot, Adam, after you got taken down thanks to a well- orchestrated war by Chris. Needless to say, after winning the 7-hour marathon, I'd play it again, too.

It was a sweet session! I felt I had a good chance the whole way. I have now started the game 3 different ways and now have a 4th way in mind. This game has moved way up on my list of favorite games.

I will try and plan another one in a month or so. With Adam's copy, and the kitchen table, we can get two games going.

Re: Edwardsville, IL Boardgamming
I loved the game even more, even though my "well-orchestrated war" didn't work out in the end for me. Going the strong military route is definately a hard thing to do. I definately can see some things I could have done differently but don't think I will try it again soon. I am in for the next play for sure.

How was Indonesia? And it looks like it was the new version of CE, if so how was that? I played the original version several years ago and I loved it, wouldn't mind playing it (and Talisman 1st or 2nd editions) if anyone has them.

I liked Indonesia. I think we progressed the game quicker than intended by the designer. None of us had a full grasp of the strategy until the last couple of turns. The strategies are varied enough to demand replay.
