Some impressions of our biweekly gaming group event last Sunday.

Pictured:

- Lumis: a two-team abstract with nice pieces. Tense, a little random. We won, barely.

- Metro: light family-style track/route-building game. Fun, although most points won were basically gifts by the other players who unintentionally work for instead of against me.

- Port Royal with "The Gambler" promo cards: My Top 3 game from last year. Again a success with 3 new gamers. Looking forward to add the full expansion, which I own but didn't bring in for the new players, soon.

- The Last Spike: new game in an 80s look – which I don't mind, but the components are ridiculously... uninspired and the cardboard and stickers plain bad. The game is a very quick train-themed stock-holding game. I got mixed responses (the "art" really does not help); I think I like it. It's very streamlined, has good player interaction (outguessing, balance between working together and working against others); but in the end it's a filler.

Not pictured: Arboretum, a tense and sometimes mean card game; mathy and the end game scoring is tricky, at least when playing it the first time. It's probably brilliant, but also brain burning. Not sure yet. I lost my 2p game 3:12 pts.

I also taught La Granja (w/ promo cards) to a group of 4 new players, of which 3 liked it (one was "okay"). I love it, but didn't mind not playing it for 3h+ with new people this time ;)

Dazu fällt mir nichts mehr ein. Oder doch. Dazu fällt mir ganz viel ein - aber das wäre alles gerichtsverwertbar :-(

Es ist ein Unding, dass neuerdings wieder Journalisten und Blogger wegen angeblichen "Landesverrats" verfolgt werden. In diesen Zeiten scheint es nicht nur angesagt zu sein, einen ausländerfeindlichen Mob nicht als das zu bezeichnen, was er ist: eine terroristische Vereinigung. Offensichtlich sollen auch noch unliebsame Enthüllungen über demokratische Missständen unterbunden werden. Das Recht wird politisch instrumentalisiert.

“Will dig coal for food.” – Thomas Spitzer's Haspelknecht at our biweekly gaming group.

One of the bigger games I purchased in Essen. Played it twice now. While not overly innovative, it's a solid and beautiful Euro with a nice theme. Want to play more :)

We played this at the last SaltCon. Good game with a lot of options with each card.

What if everything is awesome? http://christianheilmann.com/2014/11/27/what-if-everything-is-awesome/ … - let's not chase the "what could be" but get excited about what we have.
An incredibly silly movie. The other day I watched Pacific Rim and was baffled by the awesomeness and the awesome inanity of this movie. Let's recap a bit: There is a rift to another dimension under water that lets alien monsters escape into our world. These monsters attack our cities and kill ...

I agree with your conclusion that you have to five it a few plays to appreciate it. I also like it better than the usual love letter variants.

One correction: a second played Cypher Anomaly does not end the game immediately. The rules say that this doesn't extend the game (to another endgame round), so only the first triggered end game starts the last round and only the player who first played the CA gets the last turn "bonus".

And the Display is not a discard place by any means, but a open draw "pile" instead. Big difference ;)

One addition: you cannot invite an ambassador of your own race to your station. A nice thematic rule.

In contrast to you I find the standard artwork outstanding (and nicely consistent!), and found the ambassador portraits a little less fitting. But it's really a minor complaint.

Also: if you play only with the new location cards you use more special cards than with the original rules. Original was 6 special locations per player, in the new rules it's 9, if I remember correctly. Means a little more variety but also randomness in a game. I like that. Some may not.

My 6 yo daughter (red) easily beating me (purple) at Catan Junior. Her "penguin support" strategy and my unlucky dice rolls worked for her... She even cut me off. Grrrr ;)

Yes, it's the Madagascar version. And well, it's not who goes first wins, but as the game is very short (sometimes only 15 minutes) it's very luck based as you only get very few dice rolls. And if the penguin support (I guess that's the Coco cards of the original version) gives you two Circus tents for "free"...

Das Parkhaus ist schon ein bissl ... rudimentär. Ansonsten auch nicht luxuriös, aber ordentlich und man bekommt fast alles, was man braucht. Die "Restaurants"/Imbisse sind center-typisch eher (unter)durchschnittlich.
