I love this game a lot, but man my head is buzzing by the time I'm done. Extremely fun, but very mentally taxing.

PRODUCING RESEARCH

"If two geese and a paper are left on a tile, that is,
if they are not being carried by a transporter, both geese
and paper are used by the game and disappear. This
leads to a great increase in metaphysical understanding
which has no practical relevance in the game."

Subtle dig at the philosophy majors out there...

My favorite game, and perhaps the greatest game ever made! I'll clarify that last sentence is my opinion alone, so please don't comment to correct me on that. Logistics and supply chain management, all in a game that just feels epic.

Can be played solo, in which case it would apply in the standard way, but with more players, even though you're sharing a board more like Carc, we generally stay to our own sides, and so we each have a lovely world we have created.

Scorecard for the Week/Month/Year as of 2Apr2016:

4/0/155 plays of 3/0/84 total games, with 0/0/13 expansions employed.
Plays with 7/0/77 distinct opponents.

0/0/11 games acquired (plus 0/0/10 expansions.)
0/0/1 games sold/traded (plus 0/0/0 expansions.)
0/0/1 games ordered (plus 0/0/0 expansions.)
Orders for 0 games and 0 expansions still outstanding.

With the Monday lunch group:
1x _7_ Hare & Tortoise - A play with 6 - using our customary house rule of making the hare spaces unusable (that is, one may not under any circumstances land on one.) It's cool with the full complement: there are often limited choices as a result of the others' play. One tends to want to draft the behavior of the player to your right - but when that player is aiming for last place, it makes things difficult (or so we had demonstrated in this one!) It looked like the best player still won; so no complaints.
2x _6⅔_ Parade [New!] - This was fluffy and cute. It didn't look like there was much control possible (though it's also quite possible that there was some Good Play that I didn't see demonstrated in this game); but it was still pretty entertaining.

With the Wednesday night gang:
1x _7⅔_ Roads & Boats - Now this was nice: while I had played before, it was always with son #1 - and we played a relatively harmless multiplayer solitaire version of the game. With this one, we managed to interfere with one another; and it was distinctly more interesting. The logistics were always interesting: but the game is better than I'd thought! A few more plays like this, and I think my rating will improve.

Owned-and-unplayed: 0 (+0/-0)
Owned-and-played-once: 91 (+0/-0)

Outlook for the week: Son #2 pretends to feel bad that we didn't play anything last week. He thinks we'll do better in the coming one. Probably a game Monday and Wednesday, but I'm still pretty slammed with work, so there's not much else likely.

Total Spent: $145
What I Got: Core set, &Cetera
What I'm Missing: -

The first game on my list that is not a series, but a single game with an expansion, Roads & Boats is one of Splotter's expensive masterpieces. Since discovering it, I've began collecting their other brilliant works, and if I included them as a complete set, they would be near the top of this list. For normal gamers, Food Chain Magnate will probably suffice as the perfect "fill a gap in your collection" expensive economic wargame, but people interested in depth of mechanics and not put off by fiddly token moving will soon succumb to the ingenuity of these titles.

Their first hit, and the game that put them on the map. It has been a perennial favorite, often OOP, and highly sought over during these periods. You get donkeys, geese, roads, and boats.

An absolute classic, and still great today. The mother of all logistics games, and a joy to play as you watch the board develop and your empire grow from a few donkeys and some geese all the way through to building wonders. Love it, and it can be played and thoroughly enjoyed as a solo.

This is it. This is the game that got me into heavy gaming. I love this game. I can't even express in words how much I love it. The logistics, the grandeur, the puzzle nature, and the aesthetics all combine to make a game that I wish I could be playing every day. The major drawback is the set-up. I wouldn't want this streamlined though, as it is perfect how it is. This game is so wonderful it has even inspired my first foray into the world of designing games, and hopefully that little project will see a fraction of the success this game has.

The wife and I got our first play in last weekend. Very much a learning experience. Definitely a brain burner. She had some issues with it, but is willing to give it another go.

Played this twice with my wife this weekend. In the first game we did the symmetric scenario with the two seas on either side of the landmass (I forget its name). I managed 4 Stocks and a couple of coins (one more turn would have seen another Stock), for a total of somewhere around 540 pts. The wife managed a little over half that, tapping out at the top end of 200.

The next day we played the big, 2-player map with a lot of water and she fared better, but still lost by around 100 points. It's a much more unforgiving map than the first we played, so I think my score was 320ish, with 2 Stock and a coin; hers was around 250, as she'd only just managed her first Stock and had 2 coins.

Efficient placement and knowing when and how to increase your infrastructure is key; my esteemed opponent hasn't managed to get a grip on how to upgrade efficiently, yet. I can see us playing this next weekend, too.
