I love deduction games and this was great fun. Definitely will be picking this up for myself eventually (or maybe make my own copy). Chris complained that there should be more questions and would be interesting to make the questions more open perhaps.

Chris brought this out for our last game of the evening. It's basically a puzzle game with a speed element and simultaneous play. Chris and I battled it out right from the get-go and Chris won by 1 card. Bob and Rog walked away after one play as it wasn't their type of game.

Aaron and Ferrel stepped in and did well but for some reason it really clicked with me and Chris. I almost pulled out the win on the last game as I was ahead but Chris made a great run and beat me to be undefeated. angry

Really interesting Piratey game where players can choose to be a pirate and attack other players or just be a merchant and try to get a lot of goods shipped through dangerous waters. There's a lot of text and rules to get through on this making it somewhat slow for a first play. Still, great fun although luck was on my side and I got 3 points on 1 turn due to lucky card draws. Nothing too much pirate-like happened, but my one attack on a merchant netting me a ton of gold - enough to win easily.

This is a new Essen 2010 game from Cwali that I really wanted to try. I got invited in as I walked by the table after Merchants & Marauders finished as they were just starting. Score!

This game is about attracting tourists to your resort then trying to keep them there as long as possible. You also can book them ahead of time to prevent others from getting to them first.

I love the timing issues that are happening in this game - a fairly unique element in that if you send workers to work on things that take a longer time you may not have them available for a turn or two so you have to plan ahead carefully to ensure you continue to have actions each turn.

The darling child a couple of years ago at EGG got little love but for this lone game I think. We played with the Essen releases of Agricola: Gamers' Deck and Agricola: The Legen*dairy Forest-Deck which added some interesting twists. Close game with Ferrel and Rog both sharing victory at 43 points each and me a close 2nd with 40 points.

I taught this to Anna and Ken. Ken had learned Brass earlier in the day, which proved to be a stumbling block for him, as he kept trying to apply Brass rules to AoI (i.e. discarding cards to build links). Still, he was a great sport, and a good time was had by all.

"SUCK IT!!!" - Bryon to Anna, about 3 months too early

This was fun, but I think it fell flat for at least one player. It took about half again as long as I normally see it go.

That said, Peter surprised us all with a brilliant move at the end to pull out the victory. That was pretty sweet.

I confirmed that I don't like this game. In fact, it's not a game. It's an activity.

Had a great truncated game of Hannibal with Robert. I ran those Carthaginians out of Italy, but they came right back!

Fun abstract in the same vein as its older brothers, Mr. Jack and Mr. Jack in New York. Very stripped down version, but still manages to keep some of the flavor. Prefer the non-pocket versions, but would be happy to play again.

Devlin, Ken, and I made the ascent. We went straight to the hardest difficulty setting, and I'm not sure it would have been fun otherwise. There was definitely some tension and tough decisions to keep guys alive. Would be interested to see how this works with more players. Not sure how many more plays it has in it though. Components are a little silly too, particularly the altitude gauge on the weather cards.

Finally got to play after wanting, hoping, and dreaming for two years. 2 player game was not as interesting as I hoped. I'm sure the game is more interactive and makes more effective use of the whole space with 3 or 4. Still, there were some patent "screw you" moments throughout the game, and the word "fuck" rose unbidden to my lips more than once. Devlin trounced me. I like the way action turns work and the use of dynamite tiles and overbuilding. Could see how the AP-afflicted would drag this game out, but it only took us about 45 minutes.
