You guys inspired me.

I like Germany for new players and we expected some new ones even though as it turned out, all had played Age of Steam before, although some only on the base map. Germany works well as the rules are not very different, the same basic principles apply, and it even has a rule that all links must be completed by the end of your turn removing some of the tactical areas new players can get hurt with.

It was my friends Alex and Brian, Garret who had organized the AoSathon (another table played Rust Belt), and me. I know Alex to try extreme strategies and push them as hard as he can so I started the game with a goal to aggressively make progress towards a train of length 6 while staying out of bidding wars with Alex. I did warn the table of his predilections, by the way.

I managed such while Garret got bogged down in auctions where he lost 12-11 and didn't get the action he needed. Alex nicely pushed hard to a 4 train but then stalled as he was running out of loan head room. Brian was playing a completely different game from the rest of us, very productively building in the south.

Pretty terrific game. We're looking to do this again at the next Silicon Valley Boardgamers I can attend on 19-April. Still plenty of interesting maps on my shelves I haven't yet had a chance to play.

This was not a good month as far as new games for me. That's a pattern I'm seeing recently: The great majority of the new games I play I don't like nearly as much as most of the games I own or already know (makes sense since I'm actively trimming my collection to leave what I consider my favorites).

The good:

Age of Steam Expansion #2: Western US and Germany (2003)
I'm kind of cheating by selecting an expansion, but my favorite new game by far this month was the Western US map of Age of Steam. By far.


Just OK:

Trans-Siberian (2012)
It looks like a rail-building game, but it's really a trading game, with rails being a means to an end. It took me about 3/4 of the game to realize that. I'd happily play it again.

Florenza: The Card Game (2013)
I played it once and it seemed OK, nothing special. A tableau building which I can see being fun for a few times.

Timeline: Inventions (2010)
A very light diversion. It's probably played once and done since we went through most of the cards in a single play.

Pick-a-Dog (2012)
Silly, yes. Short, yes. But it was different and refreshing. Not sure I'll play it very often, but it did what it set out to do.

Sheriff of Nottingham (2014)
I liked it more than I thought I would, but that's still not saying much. It's probably very group dependent, but I wouldn't mind playing it again to see how different it plays out.


The bad:

Arkwright (2014)
Spinning Jenny was OK. Waterframe was a long, fiddly, AP-inducing, frustrating slog. Won't be touching this one again.

Liberté (2001)
It may be really fun with a bunch of people who know the game very well. The first play was chaotic and not very interesting.

The Ancient World (2014)
It could have been worse, but it did absolutely nothing for me. The highlight of the game was the art. By far.

AquaSphere (2014)
Convoluted Feld design with headache-inducing board (seriously, that board is really unpleasant to stare at). I didn't like the Feld trademark input-limiting action in this game (selecting a path on the alternate board) and it seemed to favor short-term tactical decisions over any long-term planning. Not interested in giving it another try.

Days of Steam (2009)
Boring, little game.

Schlacht am Buffet (2011)
Horrible, horrible, little game.

Argent: The Consortium (2015)
Horrible big game. It felt like doing semi-random stuff for a couple of hours to then pick a winner at random.

Harbour (2015)
Interesting premise, but the volatile market made this extremely random and unpleasant. Had they chosen a different market mechanism, it could have been a decent game.
