- I’ve now played Glory to Rome 75 times.
- I’ve now played Mage Knight so many times that I had to break down and buy card sleeves. The wear didn’t bother me, but the cards are grimy and sticking. The $$ doesn’t bother me; but, sleeved cards are harder to shuffle and take more storage space. My game (with both expansions) barely fits in the main box. I still may pick up a spare copy, just in case.
- Machi Koro does work well flipping the cost of the grocery store and amusement park.
- I’ve now played Asante a few times. And I finally opened my Jambo Expansion #1. The huts really make the game much more forgiving.
- And a new game….
I’d never heard of Concordia (shows you how much I’m browsing the geek these days). It’s new, but it’s not that new, and in the Top 100. My initial impression is that this has much more staying power than Imperial or Antike (both of which I quit fairly quickly). The randomness of the setup (and order of the deck) should keep the game feeling different, and ditching the Rondel for cards keeps the end game from degenerating into A–>B–>A–>B plays. Now, I’m not sure this is great; but it seems solidly good.
