"It's not hard to design a game that works, the real challenge is making one that people want to play again and again."--Martin Wallace

A really nice introduction to cross-incentivization. About my only complaint is that the box size is a joke (par for the course with Queen, I'm afraid). I'm up to 16 plays of this, and it (maybe along with Northern Pacific, which is at 15 plays) is my favorite way to introduce people to the concept of not having dedicated player colors.

In this game you are either placing 5 trains of a single color in order to make the railway more valuable (or to limit its value), or you are exchanging 1 train you own for 2 of another color. This represents your stock in the lines that are growing on the board.

It seems like there is a lot of reaching around the board, but it was easy to do with one hand.

I won this game, making me 4-0 post stroke. Perhaps the stroke affected my brain in positive ways, too!

There were only three games in my list item last year.

Item for Geeklist "New to you June 2014 => Best new boardgame"

Paris Connection was my pick of the month, and for good reason. I've logged seven plays over the past year, a respectable number in itself, though the game is short. I dropped the rating a bit since last year, as I tend to do with games that I rate highly initially if they don't become one of my favourites. Paris Connection is one of those games that's surprising and clever on the first few plays but settles in and becomes comfortable and familiar--a game I like to play but might not request as often later on. It remains in the collection for now, but the box size might cause it to be pushed out at some point.

Neither Jamaica nor Bugs in the Kitchen hit the table again, and as I own neither, I don't expect they will. Which is just as well.

After weeks of travel and strange schedules, it was nice to have a bit of calm. For the most part, research and teaching went smoothly. My students are wonderful and curious and lesson planning and teaching continues to be the highlight of my work day. Research is proceeding very slowly. I'm hoping to speed things up this week and may return to campus in the evening for another shift of writing and research. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll have my head together. Blerg.

Thankfully the week afforded plenty of time for games. We had several folks over for a game day which included everything listed here but the train games. Then, later in the week, I had some more mathematically inclined friends over for the Winsome games. Paris Connection is such a marvel, especially when played in rapid succession. GM&O continues to scramble my brain, but I finally feel like I'm starting to get the hang of its very odd pacing.

In the week ahead Cati and I were hoping to get some heavier two players games out on the table. I'm not exactly sure what games yet, but hopefully I'll have something to report.

Make Your Own Dice Tower Review: 1. Spill all of the pieces onto a table. 2. Rearrange the pieces, ignoring most of the setup instructions. 3. Say you don't like the game because it makes you think too much.

setup time bad
nothing special
well maybe 6.75 because i won

My prior rating was a 7.5 The big downside to this game is the setup time.


I like the two ending conditions. I ended the game by getting to marseille but I believe that this is a mistake from people who are behind.

Picked this one up thanks to @Tabletop_Deals on Twitter. 20 bucks for a 60 dollar game that had a lot of positive reviews was too good of a deal for me to pass up.

Super simple game played on a very nice map of France. There are 6 colors of locomotive which you can either take into your hand, or add to the board to connect cities and increase the value of that color for the end of the game. For each of the 6 colors you score however many you have multiplied by the value of that color. Best portfolio wins.

I played a 3 player game with Bri and her brother Ty. Made some good early trades and bluffs and came away with the victory.

If you take this game seriously, you will get a surprising amount of economic game out of it; if you treat it like a filler you get a filler... It's a peculiar game in that regard.
