Had a great week of gaming. Dusted off a few games and finally got to play one I've had for way too long.


My wife finally broke down and played my favorite game with me, Brew Crafters. I do like playing this with two players and more. I think it does well at any number. I tried the farm strategy this time because there were a number or recipes that used fruit. this worked out to my advantage. The winner for me was the end game of my lab research that gave me 7 points for not taking out a loan. That was enough points to get me ahead of her in final scoring. She did a better job of getting a variety of recipes done and I really just focused on the Ales that had fruit in them. The thing she doesn't like about this game is what I love about the game... you can't get everything done you want to do. Just not enough time or workers.


My wife surprised me at lunch again this week with a game, this time it was Carcassonne: Winter Edition. As soon as she figures out the best way to use the farmers, she'll crush me every time. She just doesn't like to commit them early, plus her mean husband blocks them with roads when she does. That guy is so mean!


Thursday game night, only one person was able to make it. We've been talking about finally figuring out A Few Acres of Snow since spring time. Finally, it was just the two of us at game night and we gave it a go. It took us a while to get a groove going, but we did and really enjoyed it. Of course, looking at the rules the next day, I see we goofed a couple of minor rules. Oh well, that happens. The important part was that we both really enjoyed the game and are eager to try it again. I think I missed the boat as the French and really should have been expanding out my territory instead of trying to fight the British. I'll have to try that next time.


My parents came for the weekend, they are spending some time this week with my daughter, but we got to play some games with them over the weekend! We played 2 games of The Game of 49. This is a great game for non-gamers, but is still a lot of fun for gamers (especially if you play with the bluffing rule). With our family, the bidding gets kinda crazy. That's the fun in it tho! I have to recommend this game.


My son really wanted to play Coup with my dad. I wasn't sure how this would go over, but it was a blast. My dad was hilarious. He's usually not into games like this, but the bluffing part just hit home. We laughed so hard and had so much fun. We will have to play this again with him.


Sunday morning over coffee and nobody else up yet, my parents and I played 4 games of Monopoly Express. Oh yeah, I press my luck way too much.


We also squeezed in three games of Farkle. The dice weren't loving my dad like they usually do.


We also got in 5 games of Pandemic: The Cure. I think we only won 2 of them, loosing the rest by outbreak. In this one, my dad is the wildcard. You never know what he's going to do and it's not always (what the rest of us think) is the best strategy.

Have a great week everyone!

Number 28 (8, Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.)

What I said then:
3.0 List (number 40):
I kind of miss this one to be honest. Halifax hammer or not.
2.0 List (number 42): 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.
1.0 List (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: Up from 7 to 8

What I say now: I actually got to play my buddies copy of this one. Had a really good time and I won as the French by only 2 points. I did not allow the Brit to hammer with Halifax as I took it early and fortified it as well as Canso and Louisberg. A decent rise for this one this time around.

3.0 number 28: Earth Reborn
2.0 number 28: Expedition: Northwest Passage
1.0 number 28: Egizia

I have been veering off of the Euro road to wargames, though I don't have much of a crowd around here to support it. My goal here is to learn Vassal more than learning a game. I've played a few acres probably around 100 times between real life and yucata.de. I know it well, so I figure if I start here, game rules etc. wont be an issue, letting me get experience with vassal so that I can start with others I'm into. I eventually want to move into GMT's battles of the American Revolution series, Wilderness War, Mr. Madisons war and others.

Bonus: I like to play as the french, bring on the HH!

Format: VASSAL, PBEM (async). I'm mostly around for a few moves a day, but may be on occasional short day trips over the next few weeks.

Teach? I can teach the game itself, but may need help with Vassal.

Expertise: I know the game really well.

Any other advice for a vassal rookie welcome, thanks.

What a great game. Mixes deck building sort of with area control. The different decks are very nice to the factions.

I got this in a math trade, and it has been sitting on my shelf for almost a year un-played. After my recent success playing Discoveries two handed I said what the heck, give it a go.

Boy am I glad I did. What an amazing game. Despite forgetting a few times to put my city cards into my discard pile like I'm supposed to, it was a good learning game. At the end I was sure the British were going to win by a landslide, but the score ended up being super close. The french did a big push to expand late game while the English waited for the right cards to end the game. The final score was: England 48, France 46. Here is the board at the end of the game(sorry its blurry and small, I haven't figured out how to resize the image).
