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.

I'll be there, from 1 to 9. I've only played Key Market once, when it first came out, so I'd be happy to give it another shot. Food Chain Magnate, sadly, is beyond my capabilities. But I'm open for any other newish game. See everybody there!

Key Market did indeed arrive.




I'd also enjoy playing Food Chain Magnate, as I expect I'll be getting the expansion to that sometime in the next few months. When if first came out I only got a chance to play it twice, so I am itching for more exposure!

I'm trying to cull my collection some. Before I put these in the CoG Auction Store, is anyone interested?

In shrink:

Celtica 15
Kragmortha 8
Robber Knights 6
Voodoo Mania 4

Punched, complete:

Age of Mythology (includes 5-6 player pieces) 25
New World: A Carcassonne Game 15
Vanished Planet (includes expansion) 25
Awful Green Things from Outer Space 10
Buccaneer 9
Naval Battles 10
Relationship Tightrope 5

I’ll be there. Going to Euroquest on the 8th, but I’m finally ready to skip my annual disappointment at failing to score a game in Saturday night’s prizes. May sublimate by buying a lottery ticket.

I'll be there. I presume my copy of Key Market II should be in by then. (Really just a reprint of Key Market I?)

November 9th is the 2nd Saturday of November and a game day! Normal timing... I hope you can make it!





Nothing like some brisk fall weather to stimulate the need for some GAMING!




Who is coming by and what would you like to play?

I'm off to OBX next week for the annual family vacation next week and we won't be back until the 27th. There are enough folks who are going to be away that I don't think a guest host is viable, so gaming will resume on November 9th!





I hope to see you then!

I will be there by 1 with Tapestry in tow. Probably staying until 7-ish as the PSU-Iowa game starts at 7:30.
