In our ninth play of Drakon, we fixed a fundamental rule. You'd think in such a simple game you couldn't possibly get a rule incorrect, but there you have it.

I played Luna against Prp and won, 77 to 56. I didn't build a single shrine, but I dominated the temple, to the point where I was running seriously short of novices in the islands toward the end.



I had four plays of Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls. The first three were the Advanced game, and for the fourth, I tried out the Dragon's Lair official variant. I think I'll stick with the latter for a while; it's a nice change of pace.

At the game group, I had a game of Forbidden Stars with four players. It was going to have to be shorter than eight turns, and I was hoping for four. We only got three. It was a learning game for everyone but me, and a couple of them seemed to find it frustrating. I think I may stick to two players, with three for special occasions, at least until I can really get a full four of people who already know and like this one.



My Looney Pyramids wheel board arrived in the middle of the week, so I got right to playing the two games I knew of that demand it. The first was Color Wheel, a game that professes to be co-operative or solitaire, though I tried it as solitaire first. I found it unsatisfyingly easy to win, although pretty to look at.

The second game with the wheel board was Petri Dish, and Prp played against me. It's a lot like Sandships, using the roll of three lightning dice to constrain player action choices. Unlike Petri Dish, it does not have a vertical building element, and it plays up to ten players (in theory)! Anyway, it was pretty fun, and Prp beat me. She says she likes it better than Sandships, although I think I slightly prefer Sandships.



At lunch on Friday, I introduced a co-worker to Arena: Roma II. In the first play, I squeaked out a win after having no cards to gain me VP for most of the game. In the second, my opponent basically drank me under the table: his Taberna scored hugely against my character-heavy card array.

Prp and I went out to play a little pinball on Saturday, but we also played Cubeo over lunch. She won the first game, playing first, while I played defensively. I won the second, playing first, and still playing defensively. Prp played first in the third game, but I won that one by playing aggressively. This counter-intuitive approach (at least to my Hive-trained mind) may prove reliable.

In the evening, we had a play of Tides of Madness. Neither of us did very well, but I won.

The final game of the week was Onward to Venus. My German empire went for the extremes of the play area, planting factories in the mine-rich Kuiper belt, and taking Mercury without opposition, while Prp dominated the Earth, Moon, and Venus, with a presence on Mars. Her Terran setup was plagued by Robot Uprisings, though.

"Just get that sucka to the designated place at the designated time and I will gladly designate his ass...for dismemberment!" - Sho Nuff.
mbmbmbmbmb
Release Date: August 28, 2014

Why I made this: Why not? I had traded for Roma. There was a module, but it was really rough. I wrote the module designer and asked for his blessing to overhaul it. He was cool with it, so I did that. Once that module was done, this used the same principles, so I made it and then fused both games into the same module with an option to play either or combine them. It was the first Eurogame module I made.

Design: The game uses a standard player hand and dice rolling. However, you drag the dice and commit them, so that was a fun change. I had to create different colored dice for each player. It was a really easy module.
It was fun creating the ability to drag and drop VP chits from the pool to your area and see it re-calculate the totals.

Execution: Rob and I played this probably 3 or 4 times. It is a fun filler and easy to toss on to our pile of logs. Funny thing: when I made the announcement on the game forum, it got so little attention, it didn't even get a thumb. I think Eurogamers are confused as to why one would play this game by e-mail.
