The only game I did not like at the convention. This game has some interesting ideas that coalesce into a terrible game. It is obviously more interested in making an historical simulation than a great game. Maybe I'l try Maria at some point.

Winner: Me

I had signed up for a game of Friedrich via the geeklist previously mentioned. I had never met any of the people I played with and I had never played the game. I'm pretty sure everyone else had at least played it, and I own Maria, so it was a pretty easy learning experience.

Joe taught the game and played with Ian, Matt, and myself.

I really like this system, but I think that Maria might be a slightly better game, even though it only plays 3. My main reason for saying this is that Austria and I took the brunt of Friedrich's aggression and whittled down his decks while France just kind of waltzed in and took over Hanover for the win.

It was a great game and I'm glad to have played it. My only complaint is that the winner really did the least of our "alliance" and was able to capture a victory due to the expenditure of resources by Friedrich on the Russian and Austrian fronts. Can't the game have thrown us a bone and included us in the win? We did all the damn work.

I don't want to sound negative. Playing this game was one of the top 5 moments of the Con for me. I have a grognard nature that is hiding inside my euro finery. It's just infinitely harder to get a play of a wargame than it is to get a play of a euro.

Would absolutely play again. I'm just bitter about the "loss".

I've had a great weekend of gaming...

We started on Friday night with this one. After 2 years I finally got a chance to play it. I pulled the Prussians (which I was dreading) but it was much more fun than I was expecting.

Distributing your defense is really challenging, especially without expectation of how the game is going to go. In the end my defense against the French was a little too strong and my east flank was not adequately prepared against the Russians.

Ultimately I got saved by the event deck. The Swedes quit the war almost immediately. The Russians sued for peace maybe two turns before they were going to win. The next card hit the Austrian and French hand and everyone was ready to concede. After checking the event deck there were only two more turns so the result was not going to change.

On the Saturday we spent 11.5 hours completing our first game of Mega Civilization. My Minoans came in 2nd to the Iberians in a 9 player game.

A now-old favorite that brought me not only (back) to this hobby itself, but also several friendships I've made through said hobby... and yet I seem to play it so rarely (the fact I stopped logging all my games played some years ago isn't the only reason I have only five plays recorded, alas). I'm keen to get this on the table again.

As this game assigns players to specific historical national roles, players signing up may choose to also select the specific European powers they'd like to play as (Russia, France, Holy Roman Empire, etc.).

# of Players: 3 or 4
Day/Time/Location to Meet: Saturday at 1, main ballroom
Expected Playing Time: ~ 4 hours

Players:
1. Matt
2. Ian Kissell
3. Joe
4. Eric Mock

Multiple sessions of a casual game. Played over several evenings. Austria wins near the very end, but Prussia almost pulled one out.

And the older you get, the fewer things you really love. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things. With me, I think it's one.

Opened & played. In very good condition.

Includes the upgrade kit to the latest edition so you get another board & another 4 decks of cards (unopened) from the previous edition.

One of my favorite games. It's heart is a point-to-point wargame with some euro-style mechanics. Oh, and it's three players vs one but only one winner. It's hard to get to the table, except at events like this.

Let me know if you are interested. It can take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours based on how the cards are stacked.
