Genji is a card game of Japanese Tanka poetry. Players take the role of gentlemen trying to impress the ladies of the Japanese imperial court with their poems.
A poem is constructed by laying down two cards, a beginning and an ending. Each half-poem has a topic and is related to a season, and each lady has her own preferences. The game is played for 4 seasons (4 trips around the 12 ladies), and for every season there's a new topic in fashion.
By comparing a poem with a given lady's preferences and the current season and fashion, each poem can be rated as more or less beautiful. A player can also destroy another player's poem, this is achieved by wooing the lady with a more beautiful beginning or ending.
Genji can be played from 2 to 6 players, and it seems to work well with groups of all sizes. It's a fun and engaging game without being excessively demanding as far as time or table space is concerned. With its unique mechanic and gorgeous theme, this one is sure to get a lot of play time.

Yedo is a strategy board game set in Japan in 1605. The game accommodates up to five players, who fulfill the roles of five noble clans trying to curry favor with the new Shogun. This game is simply beautiful and very heavily themed, with a detailed board which represents the city center of Edo (now Tokyo) and multiple colorful decks of cards. Each player gets up to four mission cards of varying difficulty: espionage, assassinations, kidnappings, that sort of thing: this game is about a power struggle after all.
Yedo combines a worker placement mechanic, bidding for resources and event cards, with the ultimate goal of solving as many missions as possible. Missions are solved by meeting the requirements of the mission cards in one's hand, and the reward is usually a combination of money and prestige points.
In my experience, Yedo is a very competitive board game, and one's plans may come undone at any time because of a malicious action card by some other player. This game is all about backstabbing, so if you play Yedo, be ready for a fun but intense time.

Last monday we had a 5 player game of Lancaster, with the expansions Henry V - The Power of the King and The New Laws.
Very interesting mechanic and lots of fun! Each player is an English noble during the war of the roses, and competes for the favor of the king. The game lasts just 5 turns, but has enough strategic complexity for these 5 turns to last more than 2 hours.
Definitely recommended as a gateway game: it has a lot to offer to both novice players and board gaming veterans.

Oh boy, Twilight Struggle. Another very competitive strategy game after several weeks of strategy games. The tension is real in this one.
Twilight Struggle is a card driven board game which simulates the (first) cold war, starting in 1945 until 1989, over 10 turns. This is a two player game, but we played it 2v2 in teams. Each player picks a superpower (USA or the Soviet Union) and tries to spread its influence throughout the world through propaganda, military coups and custom events. Card drafting adds a great deal of randomness and strategic depth to this game, since every card can be "burnt" for operation points or played as a specific event (for instance, I had an event to install Fidel Castro in Cuba, thus initiating the spread of communism in the Americas).
Unfortunately the game can also suffer greatly from this randomness, and a player might have his/her game ruined through sheer bad luck. Nevertheless, this is a very entertaining, well balanced and strategically deep game, with great replay value.

Calamares, the distribution independent installer framework will be mentoring some students for Google Summer of Code this year.
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program, first held in 2005, in which Google awards stipends (of US$5,500) to all students who successfully complete a requested open source software coding project during the summer.
The student application deadline is March 27. If you're a student, and you wish to spend your summer developing new and exciting software solutions (while getting a nice paycheck), why not give Calamares a try?

Colosseum is a fun and undemanding board game with a unique mechanic, we first tried it last night. Each player is a Roman arena impresario, producing spectacles in his/her arena in the hopes of attracting the most spectators. Colosseum combines a "make money to build stuff to make more money to build more stuff" cycle with auctions and dice rolls. Dice rolls usually ring an alarm bell for me, but in this game they are a minor element, and they are not overpowering at all, since the player still has ample choice on where to apply the outcome. If you're looking for a relaxing and unique board game, give Colosseum a try.

It's a good and solid game... It's a bit harder to find now since it didn't do as well as other Days of Wonder games but I do pull it out every so often.

Itinerario fantastico, a me Kotor era piaciuta un sacco: sia la cittadina che tutta la baia sono il top.
