Got a three-player game in this weekend. It was a rather boring, non-confrontational scenario, as I was teaching two new players. Well, it was a bit boring for me, anyway, as we didn't have any conflict.

The upside is that both other players enjoyed it, and want to play again on a tighter, more confrontational map.

I consider that a success!

(sorry no pic )

I bought R&B in April, and have played it four times so far - once with my wife, and three times solo. I work at home and find it enjoyable to have a solo game set up and play a few rounds when I have lunch or take a break.

Lately, I've been obsessing over how to make the game less fiddly, and easier to set up and break down, which will translate into more plays of this great game. On Monday, I scanned all of the different map tile types and edited them into a Powerpoint document so that I can easily create printable digital maps. I have created several, including the mesopotamia map below that I had printed at the UPS Store on laminated 11 x 17" cardstock. It came out really well, fits in the box, and now I don't need to overlay a plastic sheet.



Mesopotamia is really challenging because the rivers make it hard to range over the map. Stone becomes critical to generate early so that you can build bridges. There aren't enough map tiles to do anything fancy with researched technology, and only two pastures means you have to balance goose and donkey breeding vs putting buildings down there. After two previous bad games, I abandoned most research, except specialized (gold) mines and used carts to move things around once I had my road network built.

For this third try at mesopotamia, I managed to generate 2 nuggets and 3 coins for a measly score of 140. If I'd only had just one more round I'd have been able to convert the nuggets into one coin and two of the coins into stock certificates for a score of 200. Grrr!

I still kind of suck at this game, but it's absolutely addictive and engrossing, particularly in solo play. Also, with only 20 rounds, the solo game doesn't take too long to play.

I'm really loving this game!

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.
