The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Epic Glory to Rome is Epic

A Glory to Rome game for the ages — One player, ready to win on his turn (via a Patron/Forum victory) has the forum snatched away by a prison. That player is slowly churning towards victory as I can’t quite use all the foundations, but I do use a statue on the last rubble and then (one round later) finish my school and think 8 times, which gets us close …. but I think on the next turn for a card and when he calls the game winning patron (being able to patron from his hand) I think the last card off the deck to win by half a point against one of the other non-forum players (who scores half a point per card in stockpile).

Fauna — I like it. But praise the maker for Giraffes, because I whiffed on everything else.

You Must be an Idiot — In our circle, it’s all about bluffing. And when I get an idiot card and the question is “Define AM/FM” and the table knows I’m an electrical engineer? Playing in hard mode now. I need to decide my fake answer before looking at my idiot card.

Puzzle Strike — Has now gotten played 25+ times in a year.

  1. I bumped up my rating of GtR by half a point after that play.

  2. I think Fauna is one of FF’s better games. Your giraffe is my Eclectus parrot. It can be tough… should come boxed with a zoo nerd. 🙂
