Along the lines of To Court the King, it doesn't live up to its predecessor. It's a nice change of pace and uses teh dice combinations differently. Two things keep it down for me. One is the luck since cards come out one at a time and may be useless until another card randomly surfaces. They really needed more than 2 phases. The other is that the +1 chip as a consolation prize seems pretty paltry. But do it thrice, and you can get another turn, which seems to be key.

Akin to Carcassonne where you claim areas and those areas score points based on tiles. This is more mechanics than theme. It plays well enough with some thought going on in the order and selection of tiles to activate the vault or the order side. I think I would rather play Carcassonne though.

A quick filler of mindless fun. Keep an eye out for congestion to score solid bonus points. Make sure you thoroughly shuffle between games.

Quick filler that is pure chaos. Be the first to empty your deck of cards but you can only hold onto 5 at a time. Match shape, quantity, or color to the discard pile to get rid of a card.

First play. Fun little game. Little too luck driven. Never rolled more than a 3 on my dice until about round 5. Game ended at the end of Round 7 with somone hitting over $100G.

An NC-17 version of Apples to Apples. Leave your righteous indignation at home.

The one new thing it has going for it that really elevates the game is the concept of playing two cards per answer. A lot of the cards require two fill in the blanks in order to make up the answer.

Instead of just throwing in your best card and hoping it beats everyone else's best card at the moment, you actually have to creatively think about pairing up two things that make sense.

I found these questions to be the most fun, adding a bit more strategy to the game and also cycling through your hand of cards much faster.

Push your luck game that was interesting after the first game but got old in the second game. I think I will try to keep plays of this one to a minimum so I can tolerate it for a longer time period.

Pretty standard trick-taker. Follow suit, highest card wins the trick. The neat aspect is the special function based on the suit. What you win with allows you to move Diamonds (VPs) from Spot A to Spot B: from the supply/showroom/other's showroom to your showroom/vault. Playing off suit also grants those abilities so you are actually relieved to cast off cards. After each round,t eh person collecting the most of each suit gets that action once again. So lots of moving Diamonds in the game.

The flaw I think is that vault (safe) Diamonds are worth 2 VP while showroom (at risk) Diamonds end up at 1 VP. While it takes a bit of manipulating to get Diamonds in the safety of your vault, they can't be touched which makes it hard to catch up to any perceived leader. Meanwhile there is a lot of stealing going on with Showroom Diamonds that tends to harm those already doing a poor job of safeguarding the higher value Diamonds.

It might be better to score those at higher points since that is the higher risk. So banking guarantees a lesser value to give you a more interesting decision.

A fun little "push your luck" diversion. We used the alternate combat which speeds up the game. The game is way to luck-dependent for me to add it to my collection between die rolls and the drawing of the widely varying cards/treasures.

Ok expansion. Adds more luck than any of the other expansions, with the exception of maybe the Portraits. But the bonuses are all little nuggets and don't sway the game too much.

Given how much time it takes to set up and how easy they can flip over, block values and paint on the tile, etc, this will probably be more hit and miss in usage.

I wanted to like this game. Star Wars. FFG LCG. What could go wrong? The mechanics seem decent but I just don't have fun playing the game. I just don't feel like I am playing a *Star Wars* game or that my actions even remotely resemble the SW universe in any way.

Netrunner screams theme: I feel like I am attacking an evil corporation or defending it from ne'er-do-wells. Game of Thrones seems like a bloody treacherous war. Lord of the Rings punishes the adventurous fellowship. All of these game sessions tell a story that are set in the exact world they represent. SW:TCG does no such thing.

Quick twist on the card-drafting mechanism. Easy to follow scoring and enough variety on scoring options to keep it interesting. The Chop sticks is a nice touch letting you sacrifice a turn now to be able to grab two cards later and make a more potent move.

I am no fan of Yahtzee but one couple in our group loves it. I was hoping this would be a good compromise and it has worked well! I enjoy the added strategy of figuring out how best to manipulate the dice while they still get to roll a handful of them. Sounds like when we "figure out" the best contingency of courtiers, it may turn into a race game. But since this will be an occasional filler, I think it will have more longevity with our group.
