Legendary Asia with Connor, Luke, and Jared.

Fairly tight and potentially brutal map - even without actively targeting anyone you can still really ruin their plans. Not sure how I feel about the mechanic of trashing trains from your supply for extra points.

Team Asia

To avoid marital conflict we randomised teams. In turn order it was Me and Kester vs Rich and Alex vs Nathan and Vika.

With his first go (4th go of the game) Nathan used a wild to build one of the routes to Hong Kong, two turns later it was Kester and he built the other route. This blocked Hong Kong for Alex and Rich who had a 12ish point card to Hong Kong. Ouch.

All three teams started building on the left hand side of the board making for a very congested time.

The tunnels were absolutely killer (not something I have really experienced before) with many of them needing 2-3 extra cards. I think Rich may have paid 4 cards over the odds for a black tunnel much to Alex's muted dismay. I tried to build a tunnel (which in the end we didn't really need and Kester couldn't really understand why I was building) but failed as I did not have two extra yellows. Ouch.

Things got very tight and there was certainly in team and out of team tension. Kester played out all of his trains before me and spent his three final turns taking tickets and did well out of them. Vika and I both took tickets on our final turns which sadly we had not completed. (It would seem no-one wanted to go to Rangoon anyway).

Despite going accross the top for the long routes Rich and Alex were some way behind but the fight between the two swinging teams was nail bitingly close. Kester and I edged it by less than 5 points to great applause (ok, a single high five between us but that is at least one clap.)

One of my highlights of the weekend.

Judy/Chris 155 (winners), Andrew/Eric 124, Danny/Kurt 26

We played a fun game of TtR Team Asia using a house rule that, when drawing additional tickets, draw three rather than four and keep at least one. I thought that this made for a better game, although additional tickets were not drawn often enough to really tell. Danny and Kurt got into dire circumstances early in the game due to unintentional blocking of some of their starting destination tickets. Although they completed a lot of long routes and triggered the game's end, negative points on route cards whittled their large score way down. Andrew had a good intentional block of Judy and my last route that was not enough to keep us from winning.

Best part of last weeks gaming was Ticket to Ride team game. I think I need to look for more team games, because I might like them. Yes, there is some disappointment, when teammate makes mistake (or at least you think it is a mistake) or doesn't understand you. But still game immediately feels like your actions is part of something bigger. And coops almost never give me that feeling. Problem at least for me is that I haven't found any team games to buy. We all know I dislike much played Alias, now our gaming group also has Team Asia, but I'm not interested in playing TtR a lot. So what to look for? Maybe 1775: Rebellion, since I am huge fan of Memoir '44.
Other games played last week included Escape (still don't like it, and probably never will), Summoner Wars (devastating loss for me with Benders, which supposed to be most powerful race, as people say), weird game of Settlers (one player getting 10 points, second place - 4), some Guildhall and Revolver.

 9   Time's Up! Title Recall!
 7   Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia

I really enjoyed the Team Asia map more than the last time I played a couple years back. It was fairly friendly - you do have to be very careful about blocking when playing with teams.

It was an interesting playing Time's Up with a younger couple. It was much more difficult than normal as most of the references were unknown to them. Dynasty? Pee Wee's Big Adventure? Blank stares...

Days of Wonder's Ticket to Ride Map Collection is a series of expansions for Alan R. Moon's Ticket to Ride, with each expansion including a double-sided game board and destination tickets and rules for those locations.

Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 - Team Asia & Legendary Asia presents players with two set-ups on Earth's largest continent:

• Team Asia from Alan R. Moon – Four or six players compete as two-player teams, with teammates sitting next to one another at the table. Each player has her own secret hand of cards and tickets, in addition to some cards and tickets being placed in a shared cardholder that either player on the team can access.

When a player draws cards, she must place one card in the cardholder and the other in her hand (unless she takes a face-up locomotive, in which case it must be shared); when a player draws tickets, the first ticket kept must be placed in the cardholder and any additional tickets kept added to her hand. A player can spend her turn to add two tickets from her hand to the cardholder. A team's points are tracked collectively, and the team with the highest score wins.

• Legendary Asia from François Valentyne – The main change in this set-up is that some of the routes through Asia are labeled mountain routes, with one or more spaces on the route bearing an X. Whenever a player claims one of these routes, she must place a train from her reserve in the Mountain Crossing area of the game board, earning two points for each such train but losing access to them for the rest of the game. The player who connects to the most cities in a single network earns a ten point "Asian Explorer" bonus.

Ticket to Ride or Ticket to Ride: Europe is required to use the maps in this expansion.

Chris' choice

Zoe wins (6-4) 117-111

I enjoy this map as it's quick and often nasty, but this was one of those two-player games where your routes don't really intersect and it becomes a quick battle of efficiency and card luck. Well, it did until I misread a route and thought I'd finished it - only to realise I needed a train card. It then took me 16 random card picks to find one, in which time Zoe managed to complete her long route just in time - and win 117-111.

Bringing:

Ticket to Ride Team Asia - Would be great to get a 6 player (3 teams of 2)game of this going

Mysterium
Grog Island
Gardens
Colt Express
Vikings
Bruges with Bruges: The City on the Zwin
Helvetia

Plus whatever Nathan decides to bring....

Wanting:

El Grande, Ed?, maybe with El Grande: König & Intrigant?
Spyfall
Deus I missed out on this in November but would love to learn it and give it a go!
Alchemists
AquaSphere would love to learn if someone if happy to teach.

Shout if you are interested in any of the above


Edit: Would there be any interest in Le Havre if I were to bring it? Would most likely be looking for a 3 or 4 player game as I hear it is painful at 5 players. I mainly use it as a 2 player game so even one interested person could be enough. Let me know

Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia
Saturday, I had some friends over for some gaming. There were two couples and myself, so I asked my daughter if she wanted to play Ticket to Ride with us (always a yes), which allowed me the chance to get Team Asia to the table with 3 teams. Ticket to Ride remains a favorite with my family and I love the team variant. One couple had never seen TtR before and they were hooked after we were done. My daughter and I managed to complete a fair number of tickets, only missing one route (because I waited too long to grab a seriously needed connection and my daughter didn't realize where we needed to be. Despite that small setback, we won by a fair amount.

Dream Factory
After some dinner, I pulled out Traumfabrik (not dream factory or some other crappy edition ) for the five of us to give a go at. Its been a while since I've played this, but I love me some early Kniza auction games. My friend Mike and I had a good time battling for worst movie (only to have that award stolen from us near the end of the game by a total crapfest). I did complete a fair number of films and had the best film for the first couple of award years, which helped push me to SECOND. I lost by a couple points when Mike finished a giant film in the last round. Still, I love this game and the old (real) actors and classic movies.

AquaSphere
Mike and his wife left, so we pulled out this new game that the other couple brought over. Though a little late, I asked if they thought my (brilliant 9 year old) daughter could handle. They said sure and so she joined us at the table (and nearly fell asleep - not from boredom, but she just doesn't stay up late well). She continues to amaze me, not only because she can get the rules through one description (often better than me), but because she can play decently. She did end up in last place, but not so far behind that she wasn't a factor. This was probably the most complex game we've taught her, and I think we were still amazed at how well she does.

Gushing over my daughter aside, Aquasphere is your normal Feld point salad, but it felt cleaner and had less mechanics than some of his other recent games (Amerigo, Bora Bora, Macao came to mind). Overall, not a bad little game.

Isla Dorada
A long while back, my friends had brought this over, so i asked if we could borrow it so I could try it out with my daughter. My son had played it with us when we played a while back, so I figured it should be good for her as well at this point. Surprisingly, my son recognized the box right away and mentioned he had liked it (it was the most complex game we had taught him at the time). On Sunday, I pulled this out for the kids and I and we went about controlling the expedition about the island. My son got very very lucky and had three treasure cards for the same location (which happened to be at a spot I needed for my destiny card, so I handed him a load of points). Luckily I was able to avoid the cursed spots I had and snuck out the win over my son.

Lost Cities: The Board Game
I did a list of my kids favorite games (top 10 each) a couple weeks ago and this game was on both kids lists, so we played this Sunday night. I had a huge lead after the first round, but both kids caught up in the second and each kid managed a round where they collected a lot of idols so that they would be ok in the final bonus scoring on them. I had managed a crazy number of idols though and it was the difference in the end of the game. We always play this with the up or down variant (play the cards in ascending or descending order, which makes the game faster and more interesting) and I'm not sure why they even bothered changing this from the original rules of Keltis (seriously, American gamers don't need it dumbed down).

After getting back from dinner, Robert and I got roped into a game of Team Asia, which he had played before and I had not. We did quite well despite some... interesting tickets we had to complete.

Speculating here a bit I'm pretty certain that one or more flavors of TTR will hit 10 plays, and I think this will be the first to do it. Oth likely map is Nordic Countries

Judy/Chris 202 (winners), Steve/Sabrina 140, Nathan/Tessa 113

We taught both TtR in general and Team Asia specifically to Sabrina and Tessa, who were completely new to the franchise. Judy and I had many short destination tickets with a lot of overlap that allowed us to draw new ones many times and have several already complete upon inspection. I almost overlooked the fact that one of my routes that I thought was complete was not, but caught my mistake in time and was able to finish it through good fortune. Steve/Sabrina and Nathan/Tessa completed several routes through tunnels and had phenomenal luck when flipping cards to check for any additional cost.
