Good games yesterday. We managed to get through four games in one evening.
- Tulipmania 1637 is a pretty cool game of a bubble market that heats up and crashes. Somehow the game felt a bit flat, though. I want to give it another go, but next time it’s five players or nothing (now we had four, and I have a feeling that fifth player will improve the game).
- Terra Evolution with four was less interesting than with two. The price of the disasters is too high, I think, if you hit someone else with one you both lose compared to everybody else. Works better with two, in my opinion.
- Quo Vadis? offered the best entertainment of the evening. Delightful game, but somewhat sensitive to having the right players.
- Felix: Cat in the Sack is a fun little auction game, where it seems the best thing to happen is to be last player to pass (guaranteed a nice pile of money, which gives points and flexibility). Being the first to pass sucks, but winning the auction is not always that great, either… Clever.
