My games needs played
So, now that the math trade is over, I've got new games that need to be played.
Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg is the most novel. Sort of a Cross between Werewolf and Shadows Over Camelot. The players (3-10, but probably 6-8 is best) are put into two teams. You have to identify your team-mates and gather the objects you need to win. However, there's no communication -- players can only identify each other by actions. You can trade objects back and forth (and trading usually provides a bonus, but your trade partner can refuse the trade), and you can attack people. If you win an attack (either as attacker or defender) you can steal an object or find out which team your victim is on.
Could be good, could be bad, but definitely looks interesting.
I also got Francis Tresham's Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648. (I'm a sucker for games that deal with the Reformation, apparently). This is a luckless game for 2-5 players. In some ways it's reminiscent of Civ (in particular the fact that tokens serve as money and people, and the fact that there's no luck), but this strikes me as not quite as elegant (each turn has 20 phases, although you can skip some as needed). The game also only has 5 turns (plus an abbreviated turn 0). A longer title, but one I'd like to try.
I also picked up Power Grid Atolla Modulus.
Anyway, what do you want to get to the table?
