Game Night: May 24, 2012

25 May

I know I have not posted anything in a long time, I will try to be much better in the future.

This past Thursday, It was a fairly decent size group including Brett, Sadie, Anna, Brian, Alan, Marcus, Ted and myself.

We split into two groups.

Anna, Alan, Marcus and Ted played Genoa

In Genoa (originally published as The Traders of Genoa), players take the part of Renaissance traders, moving about the city acquiring goods and filling orders for goods. Messages need to be delivered and privileges obtained. Of course, none of this can be accomplished on one’s own. Much negotiation and deal-making is the order of the day in an effort to become the richest deal-maker in Genoa. Flexible rules allow for negotiating almost everything in the game.

Marcus, Anna, Alan had played the game before and have always enjoyed it in the past. Ted had never played the game before. Alan won the game. After I asked Ted what he thought and he said it was a great game and very interactive.

The rest of the group, Brett, Sadie, Brian and myself played Talisman

Talisman is a cult classic board game with a fantasy theme. There are 14 characters a player can control, from the heroic Warrior to the powerful Sorcerer. In this perilous adventure, play centers around the journey of these gallant heroes to find and claim the Crown of Command, a magical artifact with the power to destroy all rivals and make the bearer the true ruler of the kingdom. Only with strength, courage, wisdom and a few good dice rolls will players be able to survive the ultimate test and beat their opponents to victory. Part of the Talisman series of games.

Brett and I had played this before. Brian and Sadie had never played. At the beginning both Sadie and Brian thought it was going to be too complicated. However, after a while they both realized that it was a pretty simple roll and move game. However, Talisman is always a long game and therefore we did not finish and left the game up, so we could continue later.
