Games Night 10th July 2018

Three of us again this week.
This time we kicked off with a good ol’ oldie:

by Ravensburger
Not one that has been played for a fair wee while (over three years).
A new one to KV so we brought him up to speed with the rules as well as reacquaint ourselves with them too.
And with that, buildings were build, plantations and quarrys were planted and quarried and colonists were put to work.

The final scores:
KV: 41
MC: 44
PH: 42

A victory for MC!

Next up we played:

by Bombyx
We weren’t brave enough to play with the two new expansions, so we played the vanilla game.
We even had some assistance from the cat, Quinny, (short for Quinlan Vos).

KV managed to acquire quite the number of pearls, while MC seemed to encounter in inordinate about of monsters while diving.

KV acquired the 7 lords, thus bringing the game to a close.
The final scores:

Player KV MC PH
Locations VPs 34 10 19
Lord VPs 38 38 43
Affiliate VPs 10 19 15
Monster VPs 0 12 0
Total score 82 79 77

Well done KV, master of the Abyss.


Games Night 3rd July 2018

Three of us again this week.
This time we played HG’s new game:

by Libellud

Being a new one top us, this took a little bit of rule reading, but we got the hang of it.

As to be expected with game such as this, many dice were rolled. This meant I had a good excuse to use this beauty from Geeknson:

At the end the game ended.
Here are the final scores:
HG: 68
MC: 151
PH: 129
Huzzahs for MC!!

HG the bowed out leaving PH and MC to have a game of

The end result was:
MC: 59

A successful evening for MC!

PH was very prepared this time and his used his 3D printer to produce these production counter trays to keep his cubes steady:

And a very nice job they did for him too.
Too bad DA didn’t have a set, he knocked his board.

We played on the green Elysium board.

The corporations chosen by the players were:
DA (YELLOW) invested in Martian cities with:
KV (BLACK) had the money when it came to Earth with:
LP (RED) had floater power with:
MC (BLUE) benefitted with relaxed requirements with:
PH (GREEN) could double up actions with:

In a game where things like oxygen, temperature and water levels needed to be increased…oxygen, temperature and water levels were indeed increased.
And in style.
In tandem to the stiflingly hot evening, the temperature was maxed out at +8 degrees centigrade first, followed by the oxygen levels. 9 water tiles quickly followed suit.

LP backed the Industrial and Benefactor awards. He attained both awards with MC getting 2nd place. MC backed the Venuphile award for himself with LP getting 2nd place.
KV reached the Legend milestone.
LP attained the Specialist milestone.
MC made it to the Ecologist milestone.

Final scores:
DA: 47
KV: 63
LP: 65
MC: 63
PH: 52

Well done to LP for being the bestest terraformer there is. Runner up went to MC who had more money than KV so won the award of being the first loser.

Games Night 14th June 2018

We had two games nights this week.
This time LP and MC had a quick game of

by White Wizard Games
Where LP managed to build his forces up early and pummel MC into submission.

By that time HG had made an appearance and so we played:

by Pandasaurus Games
Again we played the medium game with no Plot Twists.
More patrons were fed to escaping dinosaurs and purple hooligans had fists shaken at.

After all that excitement, the final scores were:
HG: 46
LP: 92
MC: 103
It took four attempts, but MC finally won at his new game!!!
