The general theme and mechanics of Caylus Magna Carta are similar to the Caylus board game. However, there is no board or score track and the tactical nuts. And I’ve downloaded a copy of English standard rules. But they refer to ” Beginner’s rules.” Does anyone have a copy that they could scan and.

So, how was the year? Pretty wild, if you ask me. See Gaming Year Dominion is also really easy to teach and once everybody knows it, moves fast. Besides, I quite like playing it, I like quick turns and games that move along swiftly and there are definitely interesting decisions in the game. Based on some of the comments, I think avoiding excessive play on BSW might be a key to enjoying Dominion in the future as well.

Wabash Cannonball — Game of the year, sorts of. This was a major hit in Spring when I got my copy. I still like this one a lot, and was happy to find out the five-player game works just about as well as the four-player game. This is the German family game of the series, says John Bohrer, and I can tell you playing Ostbahn is more fun than playing Wabash. The games are similar, but different — how deep — in several, interesting ways. Players get their cubes in a cup: N cubes are drawn, where N is the number of players.

The cubes tell who gets to play. It can get ugly, but then again, the goal of the game is to win without taking any actions…. This is a pretty rough game, and I need to play more to figure out how to work the stock market to my advantage the best.

This is an excellent game. I have to say I like what Winsome Games has done recently. Of earlier Winsome games, I also bought Pampas Railroads from the reprint. Steel Driver seems like a nice twist on the railroad theme, Steam over Holland is an exceptionally well-produced 18xx title, Le Havre has potential for excellence, but also for way too long sessions.

I even upped my rating to ten after some hesitation — the game is really, really good, but only with four players.

With four cqrta game certainly nears perfection. The theme is completly bogus and the board is somewhat ugly — I think it could be nicer. I have no idea of a suitable theme, though. Preference — A traditional card game. There are actually several similar games with the same name, usually identified by the country of origin.

We play the Russian variation, which I believe is slightly more complicated than the more usual Austrian game. Preference also plays fast enough. Tolstoy was a fan of the game. Oh, and when we play Preference, it looks just like in this painting by Viktor Vasnetsov.

Le Truc — This is another traditional card game that has gained local popularity. Ok, so Hannu likes it. Sid Sackson saw the greatness in this game and listed it in his A Gamut of Games.

It is truly a great game. Very simple on the surface: However, the scoring system is where the game shines. The possibility to raise the stakes mid-hand makes Le Truc work slightly like poker.

Ystari Games

Many elements are there: Le Truc is simple, but makes for a great two-player filler, since after all, everybody is carrying a card pack with them all the time anyhow what? I know I do. I should probably rate this one a ten, since I expect it has a good chance to stay in my standard repertoire for the rest of my life.

However, I can easily say this is my favourite 18xx game. Qwirkle is a really solid game: This is a high honour, but I think Qwirkle deserves it. It was well worth it, as the game is wicked fun. Mahjong — I got back to mahjong this year, enough to do a mahjong web site in Finnish. That was — and is — a fun project, and something that was missing from the web.

I will play with just about any rules, though, as long as only the winner of the hand is paid. I also spent some quality time with Four Winds Mahjongas I had to buy a Windows laptop to do my new job properly. Age of Steam — Good old Age of Steam. For some reason Age of Steam is slightly difficult to get on the table. Well, I had fun with the few sessions I played, and got to try few new maps. The Secret Blueprints of Steam maps intrigue me a lot. With three we play Preference, though Cego might be worth trying.

Double-guessing is the worst offender, and the fact that this game took 90 minutes to play. Of the three, West Riding was the disappointment. West Riding, however, was kind of ok, but definitely not worth the three-hour play time. The third game of the bunch was New England Railways, which I already mentioned.

Something in this game rubs me the wrong way. Agricola — Five games this year. I would like to play more. Caylus Magna Carta — Played once. Not a huge hit. Should probably sell this one. Europe — Gone after few games. Too long, too fiddly, high resale value.

Making of the President — Played once, sold. Not my cup of tea. Phoenicia — Thinking about selling. Hard to teach, too slow for my tastes with newbies, not a huge hit with the club.

Through the Tules — Bought the new edition, played it once, definitely not going riles but I wished it got on the table. Perhaps I should sell them, or sell the basic version and keep the Extrem, as I like it more.

Pretty good lists, a lot more games than last year. Agricola was a must after last time. This time the boys were out of town, so it was just me, my mother and Ismo. We managed to play two games, first one taking 60 minutes and second one just 50 minutes. I agree to some extent: Well, I won the first one, then lost the second when my mom and Ismo both improved their game.

In the second game, I spent way too many actions feeding my family, emphasizing the need of effective food production. Still, fun, fun, fun! I played Battle Line and Xiangqi with my brother. He played a great game of Xiangqi, though.

I thought I won the game twice or so, but he managed to survive and mated my king in the end. Well played, and a very exciting match! We have a bit of Xiangqi history, actually.

Years ago, at least 15 years ago or so, we found this set of wooden discs with oriental writing on them in the old family farm house. With no rules, board or any explanation included, we just toyed around with the pieces. When I started getting into Xiangqi recently, I was finally able to identify that old game as Xiangqi. It was a nicer set than mine, too, with somewhat larger pieces.

The board was either missing or separate from the pieces. So, no wonder my brother was interested in trying the game.

He had brought his latest time-waster with him. It was fun, and playing together was pretty cool. While my mom and Ismo entertained Nooa, we played through the co-op career mode magba easy. Phantom Hourglass on Nintendo DS. Lots of drawing, writing, scratching and swishing with the stylus, blowing and shouting with the microphone and other things like that, all very well done.

Another year of games is soon over. Gaming year was good, but I think this one was ru,es better! At least in quality, not necessarily in quantity….
