The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

2012 Year in Review

Happy New Year!

Well, not much writing for me this year. There are only so many hours in the week, and thankfully I spend a fair chunk of them playing games with the TaoLing, a regular gaming group, and two sessions of Bridge.

Also, I’m much less on the bleeding edge of gaming. The world of the net is quite different from when I started (pre-BGG, rolling HTML by hand) and I’m happy to just chime in my opinion. Sometimes a game grips me for a few thousand words, but if not, I’m not forcing it.

Both my Game of the Year (Netrunner) and Runner up (Eclipse) are expensive games that have a decent mix of luck and skill, quick playing time (Eclipse is quick compared to the genre), and a steep investment of time and money. Some of the new batch (that I’ve played) didn’t strike me as JASE, but most of it did. Even some games I liked (Terra Mystica).

  1. Is The City sufficiently playable in the original German version?

    • I think so. You need a cheat sheet for the first few games.
