Unpublished prototype

Resident Evil: The Deckbuilding game. I liked this game, which is unusual, because I didn't like Dominion or Quarriors (deck and dice building).

Finally, a week with a little gaming for me meeple

We had game night yesterday at my buddy's place and he wanted to try out some games he bought at the Spiel last year which have not been played since. So we played

Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar - basically a really good game, but I found it too dry and too long for what it offers. Funny mechanism but mechanically not quite mellow.

Suburbia - same as above, but much quicker. But nice to look at the final cities.

Homesteaders - in its heart an auction game with a wild west setting. Nice, but nothing fancy.

Among the Stars - that was my favorite game that evening! It totally reminded me about the Babylon 5 TV show (which I followed devoutly) and the game engine is stolen from 7 Wonders (one of my favorite games at the moment). Also, it plays in half an hour or so, so you can immediately ask for a rematch!

Clocks - a mediocre dice game, which no-one of us really enjoyed. I already played that with my wife and she was also not very impressed. I just wrote a small review: A Euro Dice Game without any trace of Ameritrash. Not the slightest!.

Then I demanded another dice game, a better one! So we agreed on playing Las Vegas, which everyone of us likes! We ended the night with a game of Tichu. Always great fun!

I have played a solo 2-player a little before, but the first real play of Innovation happened on Saturday. There were three players, so it took some consideration when to activate the dogmas. Unfortunately I was to eager to use a few co-operative dogmas to get cards myself (I really needed a blue card with a crown, but did not manage to get it), and thus handed the victory to another player.

Then we played a game of Carcassonne, which I managed to won. (I should've had my Carcassonne:Winter-Edition with me, so I could've gotten its first play logged.)

Then a co-operative mode game of Room 25 in teach-mode, before watching a movie.

My GPD starts to drop if I can't get more plays in soon!

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Deck-Building Game
Relic

I didn't expect to like Relic, but I enjoyed it more than Talisman. I know that's not the popular opinion, but I think Talisman drags on forever.


LOTR is simple, basic and still fun. Nothing game changing here, just fast and fun.

I had a busy weekend I flew to California to visit my brother so we could show each other our new games.

Friday
1x The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

Saturday
1x Suburbia (my first time playing: best city building game?)
1x War of the Ring (Second Edition) (his first time playing: loved it but probably couldn't play it with any of his friends)
3x Space Alert (my first time playing: had a lot of fun. On our 3rd game we didn't take a single point of damage)
1x Space Cadets (all new crew except for me: lost on the first training mission but everyone had fun)
2x Werewolf (my first time playing in 10+ years: people were tired/distracted, so it kinda fell flat)

Sunday
1x Summoner Wars: Master Set (both of our first times playing: had fun, but strategies seemed too obvious)
1x Space Cadets (the crew returned and attempted the first real mission, we escaped just as the Nemesis pummeled us for 12 damage and set us into core breach)

It was fun to play both Space Alert and Space Cadets. Similar in many ways, but very different game play.

Saturday night we played Merchants & Marauders then Le Havre.

It was my second play of Merchants and it went much smoother this time around, although I believe that there are some questions still around combat as I got pummeled early on by an NPC pirate (I was a merchant) and could never really recover.

It was also my first time playing Le Havre and I really enjoyed it. It has made my next game purchase much more difficult.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

My buddy threw a gaming day at his house.
We played:

Catan (A win for me!)
Kingsburg(Another win for me!)
7 Wonders x2
Formula D x2

I also ate a 12 oz cheeseburger made from ground sirloin, lamb, and bacon. Miraculously, I lived to tell about the experience.
