October games

  • Oct 15, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Joe's pad

Lately we have been playing a lot of new games every week which tends to be less fun than playing something everyone knows at least a little bit.  So perhaps we can try to pick a few that people are interested in playing again week to week, suggestions are very welcome.

For anyone who is new, just a warning, we tend to focus on somewhat complicated strategy games which take a few hours to play. 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 and strategies already.

Please try not to RSVP unless you're 99% sure you are coming. It's annoying for everyone else to have to check the waitlist on Tuesday afternoon to see how many people drop out.  I wish we could fit more than 14 people here but it's not possible.  If you really want to game but the meetup is filling up too quickly, I encourage people to use this meetup to host your own game nights, that would be awesome!

 

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 or you may end waiting around for quite a while to get in on the second game.

P.P.S for food/drink you are on your own, sometimes we'll order pizza

      Right, I know we all still had missions to accomplish. But the build-up was over and it was just a matter of shuffling things around to achieve more and more missions. That could go on forever but would be less and less interesting. Everyone had their two bonus cards (unless you were fishing for a better one), and so on.

      In reading through the 'Samurai' cards. In general, they would slow development. The cards could be used to directly foil other players plans. Some of them denied opponents victory points or mission benefits. Several modified the Police. Some also destroyed other players workers. As there are not many black missions, I would expect that the Shogun death mission would be a common ending for the game. ~3 actions/bids would be enough to get it into your hand, if you wanted it. We also now all know what buildings and weapons are needed for that mission, so it should be easier to defend against if people don't want the game to end that turn.

    If another spot opens up, my office is close by so I'll run over or join the second round of games.

    Unfortunately, my last minute transportation plan has failed. I'm not sure how late I will be, so I've decided to free someone else from the waiting list. Have fun... see you guys next week for sure!

      I'd like to play Terra Mystica or Antiquity(which I could bring if there's interest).
