I started off the day by failing to defend my Loopin’ Louie crown, getting eliminated in the first round of the tournament. This game really is stupidly fun, so much so that I’m tempted to try tracking down a working copy. That could be hard.
Die Burgen von Burgund has been getting a lot of praise lately. It’s well-deserved. I didn’t get to play any of the other hot new “gamer games” this weekend, but this one made up for that. Also, Gwen managed to pip an experienced player by one point, beat another handily, and crush me without a second thought.
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer seems to be the Dominion version of Magic: the Gathering. The designers also seem to have taken most of the features that I think make Dominion a good game and “fixed” them. Despite the fun some of my friends are having with it online, I don’t think I’ll be joining them.
And that’s it. Tomorrow: Judgements.
