July 2004 Games

It's been a busy summer with less time for games, but even still I
played more games for a July than I have since July 2001.

31 games played, 25 titles (2 new to me) over 8 sessions with 26 different people.

Hot Games for July, 2004

A great abstract that seems to have a very reasonable learnin gcurve with a lot of tactics to learn.

Power Grid
I'm not so good at this, and I always end up sputtering out in the endgame, but it's a load of fun.

San Juan
I must say I'm surprised, but this keeps getting better.

Lord of the Rings
I finally got around to playing with the "dark tiles". Nice twist. Definitely harder. Sauron (Sean) got us in Shelob's Lair.

St. Petersburg
It's different, but it even plays well two player.

I like this game because it seems to lend itself to some surprising tactics.

I should play this more.

I used to think I finally had a handle on this one, and now I'm beginning to doubt it.

One of the all time greats, still.
