Games played – October 07

Firstly I hardly had time to sit and post this. Not a great month but 1 definite hit game I should say.

Fist of Dragonstones – 7 plays The game of the month. It plays superb especially with 4. Can get a little drawn out with more. But kids understand and take to the game fast. I introduced it to a couple of boys aged 13 and 11 who had never played these games and they loved it. Sushanth picked it up very fast and Shreyasi also enjoyed it.

Power Grid – 3 plays I think they were all 2 player games. OK but definitely better with more.

10 Days in Africa, Oasis, San Juan, Settlers, Thebes, Thurn & Taxis, Thurn & Taxis Power & Glory expansion, TTR 1910 USA & Zooloretto – 2 plays each. A variety of games played. Thebes was really good and fun. Have played only 2 player and want to play with more.

Bohnanza, Caesar & Cleopatra, Carcassonne, Cartagena,  Cleo & the SOA, Elasund, For Sale, Get the goods, Hare & Tortoise, High Society, Mr Jack, Mystery Rummy Jack the Ripper & Pwer Grid Italy/France – 1 play each.

Overall a lot of games played but lesser number of plays. November also has not been that great so far. But plays will get up pretty soon as the month ends and December starts. Some new games really need to be played. Unfortunately no one wants to read up the rules and teach me. So I have to find the time to do it.

Meeting a champion Boardgamer!

Yesterday I had a chance to shake hands and say hello to a champion boardgamer. Vishy Anand Chess champion of the world! Maybe another day I’ll probably ask him if he knows about Power Grid or Settlers of Catan! For now I was just happy to invite him to me next concert.
