We have been playing Survive: Escape from Atlantis all week and so far everyone is enjoying it. On Sunday we played with the Giant Squid expansion for the first time. It makes for a very fast game as the Giant Squids can eat people off of land tiles and out of boats.

We also got in about 10 games of Dominion mixed in with all of its expansions.

I recently got Sword of Rome for my birthday and was able to play the short game with my two boys this weekend. All three of us seemed to spend half our time trying to reacquire control of our own rebellious cities or using the Carthaginians against the Greek player. As the Etruscan/Samnite I've learned to hate Gauls. Fun was had by all.

A bit of a mixed bag this weekend between playing games solo, with my wife and with friends.

- Maori (x1) - Played extremely well with 4...I am really liking this game more and more
- Ticket to Ride (x1) - old stand by for fun
- Loot (x1) - first play but with 2 players...meh.
- Luna (x1) - first play solo...seemed ok, probably better with a group
- Cities (x1) - just a filler, nothing special...I just like tile laying games though.
- Duel in the Dark (x1) - my first play, solo - I was kinda digging it.
- Coloretto (x4) - a big hit with the wife and our friends.

I finally got a copy, used, after many years, and we got a chance to play it, twice, two-handed. Fun, and I think it is going to be very good with more players.

Also, Tante Tarantel, another that I had my eye on for years, but I didn't know there had been a recent reprint, so grabbed that and we tried it. I like the spider movement, it's pretty clever.

Beyond that, some HABA games with my daughter: Monza, Orchard, Feed the Kitty

2 players can play this game in under 60 minutes even with low to moderate gaming experience.

This weekend I learned that playing with 4 players (2 being non-gamers), it takes about 2 1/2 hours.

Still a great route-building variant.
