Interesting game. Very light. Played with 2. I think too chaotic with 4. You would either spend each turn completing for points or setting up the next player for points. See saw effect.

The rulebook is hard to get through, so we went all the way to the last round and discovered end-game scoring works differently than we thought. Still, an interesting cross between Kingsburg and Settlers of Catan and more fun than that combination sounds like it would be.

I got this to the table and taught it to some new people. Yay. I barely scrapped together a win (it was close), but poor Frederico was struggling to get his head around the game at the start and it cost him dearly. I'd love to teach it again.

IIRC, we played with the expansion that permitted a 5th player.

We played the intro scenario. The Reavers never came in to play, and the Alliance cruiser impact was limited. It seemed to be a bit of what I call competitive solitaire, in that it was a first past the post race.

I'd like to see the other scenarios and see if they allow for more player interaction than the first one did.

Played a full 6 player game, and learned some things about how the game needs to be run. I had previously been told that 3-4 players is a sweet spot, and now I can see why. Any more investigators, and you risk marginalizing those that aren't as experienced and or aggressive at being heard.

Also, control of the turn marker and game management needs to be in the hands of Jack. Our match unfortunately imploded on night 2 because there was an issue in determining what turn we were on and the ensuing analysis caused by the turn marker being managed by the investigators rather than Jack.

Played a 3-player game. Worker placement games aren't normally my bag, but the deep strategic layer definitely made it a more interesting game. It's definitely one that can eat some time and lead to analysis paralysis for those prone to it.

Played this old favourite as a change of pace from the temptation to always follow the "cult of the new" and just play the latest thing.

As an occasional overseas visitor to Dallas I throughly recommend going to DGM if you are in the area. Very friendly, well run and well stocked for both games and snacks! I now try to make sure my business trips to Arlington coincide with the DGM weekend. Next trip already booked for DGM in March so see you there!

Played 2 rounds of this quicker game. I think I'm ready to start playing the advanced drafting version though. The basic game is very swingy and I've had three games in a row where I've managed to complete 3 of 5 needed objectives in a single turn.
