Played a mixture of games at home, and Monstercon: Hans im Gluck's "St. Petersburg", Reiner Knizia's "Medici", VPG's 20 games; "Bussaco", "Jena", and "Vittoria"; GMT's games "Flying Colors: Trafalgar", and "Labyrinth" and Compass Games "God Kings".
Great Time again at Monstercon.
How do you like Flying Colors? I saw a demo copy at an FLGS the other day and now it is on my radar, but I haven't played.
It is a great game. It is just the right amount of complexity for a game on sailing ships of the Napoleonic Era. I've played it for the last 3 years at Monstercon.
Thanks, I'll check it out!
This one was a real kick for me.
I'm picking up a copy of No Better place to Die .
Played: Mayfair's Game "Domain". A fun quick game to play of Feudal Lords competing with each other in having the biggest Domain.
Consim Press "Beda Fomm". A nail-biter of a game.
GMT's "Infidel" A fun game for the Good Guys, the Christians, who have won all the battles so far(As it should be). I was playing the Bad Guys, the muslims, with no luck yet.
while others would say differently, I am not sure Burma is a good introduction.
Just about ready to start a VASSAL game of 2nd Fleet. Also eyeing a VASSAL game of Twilight Struggle and Labyrinth. World at War from Lock n Load too if I can find an opponent.
Really excited about 2nd Fleet!
I am currently playing Victroy Games Vietnam via Vassal. This weekend a gaming friend is coming by to make our initial foray in DG's Totaler Krieg!
