Sunday January 16th, 2011 - 10am Start till 6pm

Post by MooseHead » Mon Jan 03, 2011 1:07 am

The new Year has got off to a good start with no discernable problems in the new starting times. By 11am on the previous session, Vikings had completed with Agricola farmers of the moor and Ticket to Ride Europe getting underway.

So, the message is, we start early and things happen. Set something up in advance for our next outing and you will get takers. Arrive later and you may miss out for a while waiting for another game to start.

Hi all
I will be there on Sunday with the usual games in the bag.
Agricola/Farmers, Hansa Teutonica, Le Havre, but open to anything.
Will try for 10am but probably will be closer to 11am. (Timing wont be a problem in Feb as I will be living a lot closer ie South Yarra)

We'll try to make it, assuming the Bigster can get up the stairs. She's pretty mobile these days. Could bring some recent buys.

Anyone for SPPEEEED Ticket to Ride (USA) ? We managed it in just over 30 mins to kick off the day and tied score resolved by countback on completed destination tickets. With the early kickoff, the message is clear, and had three games well under way shortly after 10am.

Games to hit the table included:
- Hansa Teutonica (2009)
- Agricola: Farmers of the moor (2009)
- Power Grid: Russia & Japan (2010)
- Ticket to Ride (USA) (2004)
- Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game (2010)
- Glen More (2010)

Clarification on Hansa Teutonica Rules. Andrew, Sol, Trev, Carlos and I played HT and there were 2 rules queries

I had it wrong and have been restricting myself with the book action :-)

1. You can use "the book" move multiple times per turn.
Eg You have 3 actions and your Book value is 2. This means you can move 2 cubes x 3 actions, a total of 6 cubes if you so wished and had them on the board. Hmmm very, very powerful :-)

2. Ending the game by running out of bonus markers. eg. the last bonus marker was placed on the board. Game ends when the next bonus marker is claimed. Points are scored for the controller of the cities on that route. Games ends.
