I wanted my game to have the pieces like the limited deluxe edition, so I went out and found similar pieces. I also found canons to replace the siege markers that came with the game.

Number 42 (7, Good. Usually willing to play.)

What I said then (down from number 14): Picked up the second edition for $10 brand new in shrink not expecting too much given the constant talk of the game being busted by a certain hammer (is the kids name Halifax or something?). Anyhow don't believe the nay sayers. The game plays fine and if you are not raiding with the updated rules then you will more than likely lose badly. Plenty of tension to be had. Excellent mechanics and the asymmetry is brilliant and quite historically accurate. Go and play this if you haven't already!



Rating change: Down from an 8.5 to a 7

What I say now: I have a confession to make. I sold my copy off. Not because of anything other than I made a steep profit and I am trying to bring the number of games I own from a mountainous collection that is an eye sore to my wife to a few (well more than a few) well appreciated games. I feel that the game is still good just not something I am craving to play as much now. It is one of those 'it is not you, its me' kind of deals.

I wanted the pieces in my game to look like those in the limited deluxe edition. So, I went out and found upgrades for the villages and towns. Then I saw the cannons for siege markers somewhere, and thought I wanted that too!

DECK BUILDING

1) A Few Acres of Snow
2) Dominion
3) Ascension Chronicles of a Godslayer

A Few Acres of Snow is another one of those games I wish I could find a frequent opponent for. I've introduced it to several different people, but I've yet to get a chance to play someone who knows what they're doing going in. I really want to dive deep into the games strategies, but even just the surface of this game makes my top 20.

The variability of setup in Dominion is mind boggling. Unfortunately, some setups are better than others. Also the bulk of the game takes place before the game begins, and you work out your strategy. There isn't a lot of flexible tactile play, or smart reactive plays to be had in most setups. Still, I love the game and have yet to turn down a game of it.

Ascension is kind of on here as a consultation prize, since there aren't any other deck builders I've found that I enjoy. Ascension is quick, and enjoyable but I've been trying to house rule it into something I like more. The game feels to chaotic and random in the cards that available for you to purchase on your turn, and what you have available in your hand to purchase them. Also, the game drags when there are a bunch of sub-par cards out there that no one wants to deal with.

I packed up the car with more than 30 games, requiring two huge bins and a travelling bag with just a few, a suitcase, two laptops, and an overhead projector, and since the kids were staying at school through lunch, I took off early on Friday to drop off Peanut, our dog, at boarding, to get the weekend underway. I arrived and headed right for hotel check in since we had done so online, and the Hyatt sent us an email with something I could just scan at a computer and get my room keys. The only problem was that none of the kiosks were working. So I got in the line and waited a bit, got 3 keys so Dawson could have his own this year, then went to the car, got the stuff for the room, and took it there. There I found that we had been given a room with only a king bed, but figured I’d deal with it later. I went in and checked out the space my tournament would be in at 2pm, looked like plenty of room, and that I’d be able to set up the projector to point to a side wall, have the two laptops on that table, and use another table to display all the games. On my way in there, I found Michael (Firefly) Perry sitting at a table playing a game, so there was one of my assistants found already. I brought the games in from the car, he helped lug one of the bins from the foyer into the ballroom. Then we grabbed lunch and he taught me the rules to “A Few Acres of Snow”. By that time it was 1:30pm, so I wanted to continue set up for the tournament. I’ve done a full tournament write up here: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/19347711#19347711

Mar 13, 2012

What?! Two episodes in the same month?! When was the last time I did that? Unfortunately, it's been a while. But as I say during the early part of this podcast, I've got a little more free time now, and I hope I can use it to publish podcasts a bit more frequently than it's been. This could change at any time, but for now I've got my fingers crossed.

In this episode I do a few things. Most of the time I talk about my two favorite titles from 2011, A Few Acres of Snow, and Pergamon. The first is Martin Wallace's deckbuilding wargame about the French & Indian War, while the second is an historically themed, 1990s-style euro in a field increasingly dominated by plastic spaceships and special powers. I also use the opportunity to quickly recap the games I played in 2011, at least the totals and Five & Dimes.

Finally, I dig through the musty mail bag to read some feedback "on air." That was always a favorite part, for me, and maybe if I keep posting some more podcasts I can get back into it.

-Mark

デッキ構築

濃い二人戦。相手の隙を窺って策を練るのが楽しい。
要素は多いし、時間はかかる(多分)が、システムやカード効果の噛み合いがスゴい。
そのため、1・2回プレイすればルールはほぼ把握出来るはず。

The Brits take on the French in a replay of the historical struggle for control of North America. This is a classic deck building plus actions on the board design that I wish I'd get on the table more often.
