Terraforming Mars was the Best game of Spiel 2016, and is still the 6th best game of all the games on BoardGameGeek. Players choose different corporations and work on terraforming the planet Mars together with other corporations, but trying to give the biggest contribution and thus gain the most terraforming points and other victory points for their corporation. Terraforming is mainly done by raising the temperature, increasing the oxygen level and laying down oceans. Most of which are done by playing the right cards to develop some industry and using the resources you produce. Game contains all the promo cards, and components are sorted in Broken Token insert. This time I will host Corporate Era, for players who have played the game at least once before, with 2 expansions. It lasts a somewhat longer than the base game.

https://i2.wp.com/geekdad.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Gloomhaven-components.jpg?resize=1000%2C599&ssl=1 This is the 2nd gloomhaven campaign on the monkeys (i.e. not the one hosted by PG). After our group managed to loot everything available in the toxic moor (which was basically nothing...) Let's knock the shit out of some Inox :)
Let's play The Voyages of Marco Polo! I will bring all the expansions, which are : - Agents of Venice https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/232945/voyages-marco-polo-agents-venice - The Secret Paths (mini-expansion) https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/249086/voyages-marco-polo-secret-paths-marco-polo - The New Characters (mini expansion) https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/186554/voyages-marco-polo-new-characters We can play with or without them (except if we are 5, then we need to play with Agents of Venice). Playtime is around 3 hours for the base game with 4 players, and around 4 hours with all the expansions and 5 players (rules explanation included). Setup and rules explanation will begin at 7:00PM, and the game should start at around 7:30PM (feel free to arrive at that time if you feel confident with the rules).

SPLENDOR Splendor is a game of chip-collecting and card development. Players are merchants of the Renaissance trying to buy gem mines, means of transportation, shops—all in order to acquire the most prestige points. If you're wealthy enough, you might even receive a visit from a noble at some point, which of course will further increase your prestige. On your turn, you may (1) collect chips (gems), or (2) buy and build a card, or (3) reserve one card. If you collect chips, you take either three different kinds of chips or two chips of the same kind. If you buy a card, you pay its price in chips and add it to your playing area. To reserve a card—in order to make sure you get it, or, why not, your opponents don't get it—you place it in front of you face down for later building; this costs you a round, but you also get gold in the form of a joker chip, which you can use as any gem. All of the cards you buy increase your wealth as they give you a permanent gem bonus for later buys; some of the cards also give you prestige points. In order to win the game, you must reach 15 prestige points before your opponents do.
