April Winding Down
After Monday night, we're into May. I'll be at DL at the normal time. And if anyone wants to stop by tonight for some games, well, I wouldn't turn it down.
Last night our plans cleared up, and Jeff and Amy graciously came over. The 'big game' of the night was Pillars of the Earth (left), which is gloriously overproduced. We also got in a game of Glory to Rome, and two games of To Court the King (which I have now played forty times, not counting online). Glory to Rome worked out better, although I still want to see the next edition rules/errata.
For the last few years I've got more satisfaction out of longer (2+ hour) and shorter (30 min) games than the mid range (~1 hour). Nothing conspiratorial, just a number of great entries into the 30 minute range (Court the King, Roma, Yspahan, Cash n Guns ... say, did I mention that I saw the Cash N Guns expansion? Ninjas. You point swords at each other, and have shuriken). Meanwhile, the hour long Euros are stuck in a rut. (Pillars of the Earth is a great example ... it seems heavily influenced by Caylus, just with randomness. I did like Notre Dame, but it seemed like another variant of existing games).
Anyway, if anyone is interested in gaming tonight at my place (starting around 7pm), just let me know in the comments. A quick game of Titan, perhaps.
