Thank you to Terry for teaching this one. Played with Terry, Kylie and Brad. One of those "hmmmm, If I choose move A then Kylie will act to help herself and thwart me, but if I choose move B Brad will act to block me - and I haven't even factored in Terry!' Brads monolithic thinking processes spanked us all. And cheers Terry, my headache from playing the game is now merely a dull throbbing ache.

Easy going game played with Chris, Kylie and Elaine. The power of the barn and the lucky draw of a blocking tile allowed me to slip away at the end for a win. Thank you to Chris for his clear and quick explanation of the game.

30 Minutes to closing and what better game to pull out? (Any other offers?) Played with Liz, Genevieve and Billy. Billy won and Genevieve was pleased at having beaten her Dad (again).

Taught this game to gracie and Andrew (and son whose name I have forgotten - sorry)who picked up how to play immediately despite the amount of information I bombarded them with! Brad also played and aided with the gameplay advice. Experience showed through with the result a draw between myself and Brad! I can tell however that Andrew and Gracie will be needing much less help in the next game......

My first game of this with Billy, Kylie and first time attendee David.

Enjoyable, simple Euro with a good opportunity for player interaction.

This will be played by me again.

Rob and I played this with Krisjohn and Ariaflame to get the brains fired up.

I enjoy this - thanks to Terry introducing it to me at the school holiday events.

Rob usually wins (too much Kim's Game as a cub) but Krisjohn surprised himself by being the first to six cards.

We taught Ark to Sam, Ariaflame and Krisjohn. Ariaflame won.

That unicorn made such a nice splashing sound as I tossed it overboard.

I completely trashed Rob, Ariaflame, Marty, and someone else....er...sorry...in a 5 player game of this.

Nothing could go wrong for me and I won by about 25 or so points if I recall correctly.

Had a warm up 5 player of this with Warren, Ernest, The Coffeeman and Greg.Whilst I was first to 8 pieces of real estate. Greg won by about 5 points.

Warren managed to get his merchant assasinated and burgled in the same turn, which kind of put a crimp in his plans...

This was the 2nd game of the day and we roped in 4 players being Ernest, Coffeeman, and Greg.

This is the Hasbro edition of the game and is in the WABA library.

Whilst you would expect 4000 yrs of simulated history to plod by, it was a game that just seemed to run well and no one seemed to notice the 4 hrs or so play time ( except kibbitzers who kept dropping by to marvel that the game was still going).

After pleading about being last for most of the game and trying to avoid the depradations of various nomadic hordes, Greg pulled ahead for a massive win on the back of the Mongol hordes.

This version is a far smoother version than the original, and the bits looks nice. Definately worth another go.

Tim taught us this, I played two games.

Good fun game, plays eight so that makes it a must get.

I think it could easily play 10 and could be expanded beyond that.
