That was close…
After going 9 days without games, I finally managed to get in a session. To celebrate, I bought Eclipse. (I only played a quick 2 player game against the TaoLing. Short form — interesting, as I suspected after reading the rules. I think there’s a game there.) I’ll give thoughts after another game or two.
I also played Labyrinth again, after a long layoff. I taught the game and it turned into a race for the auto victories. Using the C3I variant let me win as the US (granted, against a novice Jihadi) when I spent my “Strong Horse” chit to recover from a disastrous “Lose 6 Prestige” roll after invading Iraq (to prevent the Jihadi auto-win). Glad to have played it again.
And I also played Acquire, which remains a classic.
