I really enjoyed combat commander when I played it with Richard a couple of months ago. However it doesn't do tanks and I like tanks. Chatting with Lewis on wednesday evening, he mentioned the same designer has a new game out that has already sold out from GMT. So I decided to pick up a copy of Fighting Formations: Grossdeutschland Motorized Infantry Division.

I have now descended to new depths of geekery by buying a hex and counter wargame BUT this one looks really interesting as it combines euro mechanics for its ordering / turn system AND it uses RPG dice I'm looking forward to trying this one out.

Having played Dominion Intrigue last Wednesday I went out last weekend to Gameskeeper in Oxford and used the birthday money that was burning a hole in my pocket to by Dominion (base) and Cornucopia.

Brilliant!

Ooo, I haven't been fortunate enough to play with Cornucopia yet. Count me in if you bring it along sometime! I don't even know what any of the cards are yet so that would be a very fresh experience.

I noticed your tweet on Saturday.

Did you enjoy it? It looks interesting.

I can't justify another spend on the same day!

I did. Played it twice in quick succession. It has a few features I think you'd like. And it has a large deck of cards that mix things up, game-to-game. Player elimination is a key aspect of the game however which may not be to everybody's taste, but it moves quicker and quicker as more players fall out.

Oh, and I know diddly squat about NotR and ZiMP from your list above.

It's sitting on my shelf. I'm willing to have a 2p learning game sometime. Basically I found it too heavy to play with Cathy.

It's possibly too heavy for me!

I'm sure I could.

I liked it last (and only) time I played so would be happy to play again. Would just have to re-learn the rules first...

I bought
at ManorCon. Only plays up to 4, but a nice game. Decent amount of variability: resource game but with dice!

Did your copy come with the warning sticker? I.e. the one saying 'Wear protective clothing while playing, may cause brain explosions!'.

Seriously though, seemed like a good game based on my one play, but with a lot of options to consider.

Uhoh! Don't sit me next to Simon when we try it!

Joking aside, it was on my list a while back. Love to give it a go sometime, or rather make random moves while I figure it out for myself!

Yeah, at first it was a killer, but after 2 games it started to rattle along at a decent pace. I think you may have found it brain burning Johan because it's more tactical than strategic because of the dice, so you have to keep rethinking your plans the whole time and can't rely on the JEMP™ (Johan's Evil Master Plan) to carry you through

And it does INDEED feature a lot of fresh air within the box. Very frustrating.

Also, from a while back...
