Hellooo Active Gamers!

Okay...2013 is winding down and we've played lots of games. However, no board gaming experience is complete until you play at least one board game by Stefan of the finest German board game designers EVER (his designs tend to be pretty heavy, but fun!). 

Easy to learn, hard to master.

The games we'll have available are 2 copies of Trajan and 1 copy of Bora Bora.


Trajan (2011) by Stefan Feld

Taught by Manny and Amanda (thanks Amanda!).

"Set in ancient Rome, Trajan is a development game in which players try to increase their influence and power in various areas of Roman life such as political influence, trading, military dominion and other important parts of Roman culture."

The central mechanism of the game uses a system similar to that in Mancala or pit-and-pebbles games. 

Bora Bora (2013) by Stefan Feld

Taught by Manny.

"Stake your fortunes in the mysterious island world of Bora Bora. Journey across islands, building huts where the resilient men and women of your tribes can settle, discovering fishing grounds and collecting shells. Send priests to the temples, and gather offerings to curry favor with the gods."

Bora Bora is a highly interactive game that utilizes dice to determine what kinds of actions you have available to you. Errr...something like that.


RSVP Details:

*Please comment on which game you want to play. We'll have 2 copies of Trajan (4 players max each) and 1 copy of Bora Bora (4 players max).

    I just wanted to thank everyone who came and played. Getting 10 people to learn a Stefan Feld game for the first time is actually a pretty hard thing to do. I just wanted to thank Amanda and Tripp for being great sports about sharing their knowledge of the game. What you played will probably be the hardest (learning wise) we'll ever try to attempt at Atomic Empire. So if you can learn a Stefan Feld game, most games in the future should be easy (so we won't do anything more difficult than a Feld game).

    So thank you all for coming out and taking a chance on Stefan Feld. :)

    Thanks Manny- that was a lot of explaining in one night! Enjoyed the quick pace of Bora Bora once we figured it out.

    The title of this event made me think that Stefan Feld is going to be playing board games at Atomic Empire.

    I've played Bora Bora twice at previous meetups, so for novelty's sake I'll try Trajan.

    If there isn't enough interest in Trajan, I would also be happy to teach Macao or Castles of Burgundy! Trajan is an excellent game, but so are these other games :-D

    October 25, 2013

    • Tripp

      I'll play any of them!

      October 25, 2013

  • Zoe

    I'll play Bora Bora.
