I absolutely loved this game in high school, and had such a good time re-learning the game for last year's WBC that I tried to work as many heats as I could into my schedule this year. I even brought my "lucky" Russian hat to wear while playing. I ended up playing in two heats with moderate success in both. I used a geriatric strategy in both games and on Monday, managed one failed wave which was good for second behind the winner, who had three quick waves. The Friday game developed at a far slower pace, and for most of the game I could not get my main candidates into the politburo. I managed one wave, but two other players each had a wave and it increasingly became apparent we were going to go the distance. This actually worked out to my advantage. By turn 10, I controlled the KGB head, Foreign minister, and 2nd tier candidates. All I needed to do was dislodge the party chief and I was set. Unfortunately, the favorable rolls didn't come, which meant I was unable to advance to the top spot before the game ended. I still had a blast playing, and look forward to playing even more heats next year.

I couldn't fit this game in last year- probably my biggest 2015 regret. So I made sure to clear my schedule to make the first heat on Monday (in 2015 I skipped it figuring I could make it up later in the week. But you never know what will happen to your schedule as the week goes on).

As usually happens, someone at the table jumped out to an early lead and got 2 waves (with Nestor, I think) before we managed to kill him off. I had managed to set up my 8 point person to be the next party chief after that happened. Unfortunately, it was also the 9 point person of the guy with 2 waves. So, that was that.

I know this game isn't for everyone, but I have a blast every time I play it, even when I don't get a chance to do much (like here). I've been in a rut for the last few years though- maybe next year it's time to shake up my strategy a bit and try to go for some early waves.

Avalon Hill edition (English). NOT the version pictured.

I got this in a BGG math trade. Played once- not my cup of tea. In good shape. All parts are present. Cards separated. (They appear to have been shippd as a sheet of business cards- they are about that size and they are kind of corrugated on the edges.) Counters in baggies. Medium shelf wear, and noticeable whitening.

Kremlin: Yes comrades, we celebrated the glorious revolution of America by looking at Soviet Russia. In such a way Independence Day celebrates you! I'm still fond of this game- despite the large luck factor that comes in picking your politicians, I have a hard time not smiling as we talk in horrific Russian accents and purge out the capitalist spies from among us!

Puerto Rico: The nice thing about playing with younger folks is the old war horses of ten years ago are completely unknown and thus new. I taught a family friend and his sons to play Friday- they've logged another three games since and are really enjoying it. It is fun to see them start to explore hobbies and strategies.

Dominionx6: I really really love this game. It's been on hiatus and I think has fallen out of favor due to over-exposure. But I had a blast with some of the Seaside cards. I may also need to grab Dark Ages- that expansion had some fun ideas that I really enjoyed as well. Treasure Map is my new favorite card! arrrh

Thunder Alley: Absolutely great with 5+. We had a nice green flag race, and it flew by. Quick turn taking and decision making, lots of tension. Just what I wanted out of this game. I need to start packing expansion tracks so we can try them!

Dragon Rampage: There are some neat ideas here, but the end game scoring really ruined this game. It made it feel that you had to either be the one who killed the Dragon, or the one who was first to flee the dungeon. Player who are not sitting on top of one of these goals seem to be pretty far out of contention, and that really turned me off to it.

On my mind: I'm apparently going to the MTG release thingie this weekend. I've played about 3 public games of Magic, plus a handful against a friend using starter decks. I fully expect to be whipped, but I'm curious. This seems it'll be pretty fun.

I definitely have an Overwatch addiction. Doing my best not to be a neckbeard about competitive, but I can be pretty salty when I get on a losing streak.

I've been thinking about Pokemon Go but have yet to pull the trigger. Maybe tomorrow....

I nominate Kreml for best foreign election game. Die Macher is excellent, too, but Kreml is a category on its own. In which other game are you required to drink vodka and hold a funeral speech for the deceased leaders?

I am, of course, referring to the original Swiss edition by Fata Morgana. Avalon Hill stripped it of all fun references, and I wouldn't touch that edition. Oh, and it has my favorite page from any rulebook, ever:
