I wanted to dive right in to the new Switzerland edition, but I rounded up five people before I realised the expansion only plays 2-3. So we played this first.

A great outing of this game was still being played by 5 of us while the room was packed up around!

I've not had the chance to play this in a good few years, and it reminded me how much I like it. Tight auctions with cheap and then expensive jesters abounded. It looked very much like the jesters would bring the greatest prestige, but it was not to be! A *very* close finish...

It's great to have a second Ticket to Ride without having to find room for yet another huge box. Game plays great, really enjoyed it.

This reminds me of an old computer game I used to play on the Kaypro with five or six companies named after stars or something. Pleasant enough, though I felt locked out of the action with all the shares being bought of the large companies.

Mikey, Brad, JM and Katie played this for warm up...

Mikey and Katie chased the same production building / guild hall strategy, but although Mikey had enough silver smelters to build the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, he didn't have the palace itself, which netted a decisive 9 points for Katie!

Final scores:

Brad 27
Katie 45
JM 35
Mikey 39

I was chuffed to have another game of this, this time with Ju, Mikey and JM. Mikey taught last time round, but this time got to play!

We played with the newly discovered easy rules. Katie annoyed everyone greatly by buying every fisherman she could, but still couldn't better JM's multi-island / large island strategy.

She did build a nice Veeple tower, though (albeit shorter than Ju's beautiful SwanCon specimen).

Mikey - are you still going to publish your tough rule variant which was so long in the playtesting phase?

Mikey taught this to Katie, JM and Brad. A great game was had by all! The general lack of confrontation for this type of game suited me, though there was a nasty skirmish on the Greek (Brad) / Phoenician (JM) border. The destruction of his temple angered Zeus into scuttling the attacking fleet. Then the Romans (Mikey) routed a host of vulnerable Germanic temples (Katie's) to win the game!

As Mikey predicted, the strategies for this buzzed round my head afterwards. I'd love another game!

This one was a playtest. It was a bit like Risk on steroids. I think once the rules are finalised and people have played before, it should go well. Feedback was good from other playtesters around the globe this weekend.

I won my second game of this - 3-player vs Mark and Dean.
Kinda sorta getting a handle on the game, but it still broke my brain.

Graeme taught this to Greg, Opalina and Chris. Took us a while to get through this being a learning game.

It's got monsters, fighting and betting. Cash in if the monsters you've backed are left standing at the end.

Most devious card-player will be the winner, and this time it was Graeme.

We had fun! Us noobs felt like we were just getting the hang of it at the end. So the next game can only be better!

Four of us had a go at this - just arrived in Perth.

Similar to Atlantic Storm.

I find the positive feedback in the game most irritating - if you win the right battle, you are entitled to an extra card, which should make it easier to win battles in the future. So an early battle win (which is mainly determined by luck) can get you off to a flying start, never to be headed.

Having grumbled about the luck, I have to admit that the two experienced Atlantic Storm players seemed to get lucky more often - so perhaps there is skill involved, and I haven't yet appreciated the subtleties. Anyway, I rewarded Renata for his umpiring of "Attack! Deluxe" by coming last, thus 'allowing' him to be second last.

We had a good three race six player game of this with just enough niggle, upsets and crashing cars.

Fun little game where you reanimate body's worth of parts. Quite quick, would have loved to play it more than once but the owner had to leave.
