'take 3 games into the shower'

A semi-arranged game of RoE resulted in 3 of us bringing the game along and it was my recent Essen bargain purchase that got its first outing. Lugging this and Conflict of Heroes around the Essen Halls I had presumed it was the latter that was causing the lack of circulation in my hand as the plastic bag bit into my fingers. However, getting them back to the hotel i discovered that Rise of Empires was also one hefty game with a hell of a lot of tiles - who knew cardboard could weigh so much.

The primary mechanic of the game involves player's placing (one at a time) 6 action discs against various actions which they then perform. The kicker is that the next turn is spent taking those action discs off the board (again one at a time) and performing the same actions. So you need to plan not only for this turn but also what you might like to do next turn!

Actions include:
Progress: Take a Progress Tile - which gives your Civ a new shiney ability
Territory: Take a Territory Tile - which will may produce/require regular resources/food/...
City: Take and build a City or a Wonder Tile - VP generation but requires upkeep
Trade: Trade Resources for Gold or VP
Empire: Send your armies out to conquer the known world (as the game progresses the known world expand especiall once Navigation is discovered)

Brief summary of our game:
Nick collected islands and always had a heavy presence in areas surrounding the Med.
Gordon was the Weapon master making him someone to avoid sharing territory with. Several of his moves were described as disastrous (by himself).
Paul ducked and dived with his abilities to trade different types of resources for each other. For much of the game he was awash with Gold.
James built Cities every turn and spent most of the time getting beat up on the map.

Others can say how they found the game, but for my part I enjoyed it a lot. My rating after one play a long time ago was 7.5 and I might nudge this up to an 8.

Plusses:
- A lot of angst over what to do and when
- Think I helped counter that you need to be dominant on the map (as i think has been suggested elsewhere) to do well
- think the emphasis of the game shifts nicely through the 6 turns
- after thinking being last in turn order was very important, I ended up less sure this was correct

Possible negatives:
- length of play
- taking territory tiles seems essential for the first half of the game

Scores:
James 128
Nick 117
Paul 109
Gordon 104

Martin Wallace game of civilization and conquest. Innovative worker placement mechanic that forces players to plan ahead for their future turns, because selecting an action for this turn will lock in the same action for next turn.

Played only lightly. Components are like new. Rulebook shows light use from being paged through and read. Very minor scuffing on corners of box.
