Hey, let’s discuss things! So, the IGA …
General Strategy, Multiplayer:
- Have not played — Aquasphere, Deus, Elysium, Hyperborea, KraftWagon, Orleans, Panamax,
- Five Tribes — Meh
- La Ganja — Meh
- Quartermaster General — My pick, obviously.
- Roll for the Galaxy — I played a burst of 20-ish games, and I’ll probably play a burst when the expansion comes out. Any game I play twenty times is intriguing and probably pretty decent, but I’m mentally comparing this to Race, and few games stand up to that scrutiny. Roll is no exception.
- Voyages of Marco Polo — I enjoyed my single game of this, and I haven’t played another. I’m not sure anyone local owns it.
Two Player Games:
- Baseball Highlights: 2045 — I guess I don’t need to read the rest of this category, and in fact the only other game I’ve played is Star Realms, which (like Roll) was a burst of 20 games over a few weeks and done. Then again, I’ve had a tough time getting BH2045 back to the table, but I’m still pushing it.
- Games I haven’t played — Fields of Arle, Patchwork, Star Wars Armada, Wir Sind das Volk
