Terry's copy of this seemed to be in play most of the day. After one play I'm still reserving my judgement. Strangely, my Guildhall strategy failed...perhaps 'cos I didn't build a library?

Just because it says '6 Players' on the box....

Looking forward to a tighter and faster game with 3 or 4 though...

3 player game with Billy & Steve G (II). Demonstrated an uncanny ability to draw the right tiles at the right time...

Simple but always fun.

I think Formula Motor Racing has the nastiness this is missing.

Played a 4 player game with Paul, JM and Casey (?). BMC games usually come done to the wire, and this was no exception.

Paul took the rest of us by surprise as he made his final offering to the obelisk for victory and the game was suddenly over. Lesson #1: Pay attention to what others are doing at all times!

This game seems to fly under the radar. You really hear anything about it but its highly rated on BGG and imho is an exceelent game.

Rob and I taught this to 3 people who hadn't played it before. The Central Powers' spy plane got shot down early, which was a bummer. This left two small, underpowered and undergunned planes fighting off two big nasty tough ones. But we ( a lady whose name I don't remember - new to Eurogamesfest) and I managed to blow up Rob and her partner in the tougher planes, while Paul cheered us on from his downed two-seater.
