Super awesome games on tuesdays

Tuesday is game night here at my place in Soma.  It's been about a year now and we usually get a rotating cast of characters coming by for some games.  Here is a link listing all the games we have on the shelves.

Just a warning, we tend to focus on mostly more involved strategy games, at least a few steps beyond something like Settlers of Catan in complexity.  So if you are new to gaming and potentially adverse to learning a bunch of rules, this game night may not be for you.

That being said, it is definitely nice to have new people show up and I am always learning and teaching new games - it isn't strictly competitive. So it's definitely possible to come and enjoy playing some games without knowing all the rules strategies already.

P.S.  We usually spend about 15 minutes deliberating which game to play, but if you are going to be after 7:15 or so please try and post something here so we can wait for you.

Also it is sort of BYOB/food but sometimes we order pizza.

    Reflecting on the Container game (notes which will hopefully be useful to others for later, please don't take blame or any such, it's a ridiculously difficult game where good moves are not at all obvious):

    -Kurtis murder-suicided both myself and Alan early on. He sold his warehouses too cheaply, benefitting those immediately down the line. He also replicated anything Alan did, including doing too many cost-sinks. This hurt me extra because I bought a large early shipment as well as having a fully stocked set of three goods in my warehouses and was stuck with several loans

      I think I sunk myself by diversifying out of shipping too late and buying too many goods onto my Island. I probably should have let you have the rainbow for $20 since it was more valuable for me to keep liquidity.

      It was illuminating to realize having the rainbow isn't all that important, especially if my 5/10 is going to be thrown out. So I focused on producing and shipping, as opposed to islanding.

    Im looking to play/teach a new game, so I've narrowed it down to Vegas Showdown, Poseidon, or Duck Dealer. Anyone interested in any of those? Alan mentioned Indonesia, of course there are tons of options.
