I cannot attend this session. I am going to be laying wreaths at Arlington Cemetery on Dec 14th, but should be done by noon and can make the gaming then.

Looks like I'll be able to make Saturday after all! I'll be there between 1 and 6. I'd love to play Teotihuacan--haven't played the expansion yet. I've played Altiplano once and wanted to give it another try. Not sure I know it well enough to warrant the expansion, but if that's how folks want to play it, I'm game. Hopefully, I'll have time to play two games of something. See y'all there!

As an aside, this is the first time I've spelled Teotihuacan without having to look it up. I feel like I'm learning.

I would really like to play




Key Market(John has my copy)


Altiplano+Expansion (I'll have this in tow)

Teotihuacan+exp (Which John has graciously purchased)




If I could get all three of these games in in one game day, I think that would be really something. Shall we try to make it a perfect day? :o)

I picked up Teotihuacan and the expansion, which should be fun.




I hope to see you!

It's true. Larry Levy, outspoken critic of Kickstarter games (or at least cautious skeptic of Kickstarter games) has a game for sale on Kickstarter.
See it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1296268806/loot-of-lima?ref=4mtfw3&__s=wtfmiywp7rszreztxt4s



Congratulations Larry! I hope it does well. It's already funded after less than a day--I think that's a good sign.

Keymarket Favor Track

Based on the discussion Saturday, I've done a little analysis of the Key market favor (tie-breaker) track. Assuming that nothing else changes the order (i.e. all players are always tied and no one takes coins as a market action), the favor track distributes player order perfectly. Every round, each player will shift up down place in turn order, with the last player shifting to first.



Except on the first round. The first round abnormality means that the first player in round 1 gets an extra turn as the first player (at the cost of a third-player turn) and the third player in round 1 gets an extra turn as third player (at the cost of a first-player turn).



The solution to this is to setup the favor track differently during setup. Instead of reversing the player order, it should be setup as 4, 1, 2, 3.

Funnily enough I read the rules to Crystal Palace and Maracaibo before Essen, neither seemed particularly interesting. The former had a convoluted set of mechanics that felt complicated for the sake of being complicated, and the latter felt like you're basically doing 4 rounds of the same things. I played La Stanza and QE as well, one was okay, but really hurt by the less than intuitive rules, the other I didn't care for simply because I don't like auction/bidding (blind) games.



In other news, I believe the reimplementation of Larry's Deduce or Die is on Kickstarter today.

Okay, dropped prices based on what didn't sell at EuroQuest. I may cull some more games from my collection at 5th Saturday later this month.

I would like to try Tapestry again.





I played four new games at Euroquest yesterday but none of them were yet available in the Canton Games shop. I thought two were worth playing again (Crystal Palace and Its a Wonderful World). One may have just been poorly taught (La Stanza) and one was just a waste of cardboard (Quantitative Easing). I also sat in of the rules for the new Alexander Pfister game (Maracaibo) but I didn't get a chance to play. In general, it gave me some hope that folks have not run out of creative new ideas.

I will be there tomorrow, but I will probably miss game #1 and arrive around 3PM. I'll bring Tapestry again and the new Fantastic Factories, a little engine building filler. I'm a strong pass on FCM, but I've never played Key Harvest and would like to.

I’d like some of that Key Market action. Long been a grail game, now widely available.

Larry, if Food Chain Magnate doesn't work for you maybe we could try Duck Dealer.
