I thought this might be too long of a game to include, but then I saw Robo Rally on the existing schedule.

Other games have the opposite problem. Sometimes the development team can streamline a particular design so much that the game looses its character. I happen to love Eclipse, which I felt fixed many of the big problems of TI:3e. Of course, it ran into its own suite of problems.

#3:
Can you think of any (non-Feld) game that you think has been overdeveloped?

This was new to Josh and Peter, so we used just the basic game, all human players, with just a few expansion tiles in the Discovery pile.

Peter had a very strong economic start. Josh explored a wide area but wasn't afraid to pull back influence discs after taking the many discoveries he found. I struggled to find any economy at all, but did rather better on the other resources.

Josh was the first into the centre. There was light skirmishing between Josh and Peter (one memorable battle won by 7 6s rolled on 12 dice by Josh's ion missiles).

An exciting turn 9, as so often with Eclipse: I built the Monolith technology and three monoliths and turtled (I should have at least sent in a sacrificial lamb somewhere to get another combat VP or two). Josh moved in to attack me. Peter was cut off from me, but moved in to try and take the centre. Josh threw me out of my 3-VP hex, but Peter took the 4-VP centre from him. All close nail-biter battles, so how did it end up?

Final Scores
Josh 35 - new
Russell 34
Peter 33 - new

Well done Josh. Both Peter and Josh has grasped the game and strategies extremely well, I thought, it was a hard fought game and a very close result. Always love this game and hoping to try some of the new expansion soon.

I have played this a lot and while I still like it a lot, I do at times get frustrated with the randomness. On the other hand, that does simulate exploring space. A great euro disguised as a war game.

Spent the week in Croatia, xso not much gaming.
Read the rules for Red Winter: The Soviet Attack at Tolvajärvi, Finland – 8-12 December 1939.
Also damaged my foot. Think I did somehting to a bone in the foot(metatarsel) and limped the whole week. Not the best thing concidering I just enrolled for the Oslo Half-marathon. A bit better now, but no running this coming week either.

Got in a gaming night on Sunday, but had to call "weekly war" off because we were 3 players. But I treated the game as a wargame and tried to attack on most of the turns in the last half of the game. I came second with 32 points and Erik won with 50-ish points. Ingmar had 15 points after not hitting with any of his attacks against aliens. Cool game.

I got short demos of a handful of other games, but my convention had pretty much run it's course. I made one last stop, at the Broken Token booth. After putting together my Tesla Vs Edison organizer that came with my expansion Kickstarter, I was looking for any excuse to buy another.

I didn't have a lot of games that they had organizers for, and even fewer that I felt were worth the expense for the value they provided. But Eclipse is a game that could really use some help with setup speed. So I grabbed this on my way out of the convention.

I still didn't get the full GenCon experience, but I was driving an hour back and forth each day, so I didn't want to stay out all night. Saturday I had a family emergency to attend to, and by Sunday I felt like there wasn't much more to do at the Con.

I'm definitely tempted to get a hotel room for the length of the Con and really do everything, but that will have to wait until next year.

In the end, I came home with a little money leftover, which I was pretty pleased with. I've also already gotten most of my purchased games on the table, either with a group or solo.

And that's it for me from GenCon.

Volunteering in the Pick Up & Play area was another real blessing this year. Because of that I sorta have a natural budget for buying games and hit that budget this year and felt like I was okay in spending it. I taught several games throughout the weekend including Saloon Tycoon, Dungeon Lords, Hive, Thurn & Taxis, and Eclipse. I played the Eclipse game with Steve and Stuart. It has been 3 years since I'd last played, but I think I did a decent job of teaching them! Then I saw them again the next night learning Scythe from another one of our volunteers. It was really fun hanging out with them, teaching, and hope I get to see them next year. A few things I noted about the Pick Up & Play area this year. It seemed slightly less busy than last year. I was also amazed how many times I saw Dungeon Lords being played over the weekend. As for new games that I saw out a lot, Scythe of course was non-stop, and I saw a decent amount of Terraforming Mars as well.
