went to a local gaming club for the first time yesterday, played some interesting games, a couple of very new ones... First we played Heart of Africa a couple of times. An interesting game with bidding/resource grabbing/conflict with natives and other players...Not pc, after all it is a game about the grabbing and exploitation of Africa by european traders....It was fun...Then we played Oultremare, a card game with a tiny board and little teeny-tiny cardboard pieces... You are a Venetian merchant travelling around the meditteranean taking cargo around. There is a deck of cards for the cargos, the more of a particular type of cargo you can put down in a row, the more points you score....putting down cards also gets to move your ship around, get attacked by pirates, get ducati and more cards...A very fun,quick, light game I'm tempted to get as it'll be fun to play with my family...Also played one old card game (Modern Naval Battles) which was entertaining not very realistic ship-sinking fun as well....Good to meet some Toronto gameers as well!
