I'd like to sign up for Vinhos, but if Ryan isn't feeling like reading the rules, I could play something else.

Actually I'm probably going to be late to this. So someone else can take my spot for through the ages.

I'd be interested in trying Vinhos sometime in the future.

I would like to play Through the Ages, and I agree with Andrew the one thing I enjoy about board games is the face to face play.

Shelia and Don have yet to pick, I was hoping for game that would run 60 to 90 minutes. I am interested in Vinhos as well.

Vinhos looks like a good BACSIM game, but I think Sven is going to be helping Ryan with his next How to Play and Ludology podcasts after Sven's successful play of Power Grid.

Ok I am now trained in Portuguese wine-making, so I will go ahead and stick with the plan of running Vinhos tonight, I printed out some player aids to help too.

This is certainly euroriffic, lets see how it goes.

I'm down for making some wine. I'm also flexible if we have an extra person or two show up.

I guess I'm still looking for a game, if there's anyone else who needs one. Or I can stay home and sleep.

Have to change my RSVP to a no this time. Thought my body would be recovered enough to bike over but this is not the case!

Well, I was late to work, and only got 5 hours of sleep, but I wanted to comment on Vinhos. Ryan, Andy and Don and I played Vinhos. Jenna and Shelia with the help of coffee made it out and they played Le Havre and Jeff joined them with the strict time constraint that he had to leave at 8:45. They finished their game of "See Joel LeHavre does not need to take 4 hours" at 8:43 just perfect for Jeff. Joe and AndrewL played "This is How Real Men play Through the Ages"

I have to make yet another apology to Ryan as he finished the rules explanation, I asked him if he got this game for free. Ryan I really did enjoy the game and I am sorry I doubted your game selection.

I would say that Vinhos is a bit more advanced than Caylus, and similar in play, a lot of choices and quite a few tasks that you have to manage. Andy, was the master vintner, Don was just a vintner, Joel was the special ed intern because Ryan helped, and Ryan was the intern.

There is a neat complexity to the game that I hope to get a chance to explore at some other session.
