Thanks for the heads up. When is the next NYC board game night? Do you bring your own games? Is there an enterance fee? What time do the start and how long do they go on for?
Ok if I come Id try to make it to the city around 5. Any suggestions of where to eat? You could use my thread i started Places to Eat in Manhattan.
Someone told me there is a free and official way to play Race for the Galaxy online. Where is it, and does anyone want to play?
And no, I don't want to play. I really don't care for that game. Having to memorize all those damn different symbols and what they represented was annoying to me.
That is a major flaw in the game, but I finally figured it out (mostly). Once you get past that, it's Puerto Rico.
The AI is really rough and is kicked my ass the first dozen or so games but after that I'd say I can eek out wins about 70% of the time.
Also, Kings Games of Brooklyn, NY. I always thought the Strat was the only game in town. You guys been to this one? They were nominated for organized play. Are these nominations crap or gold?
I think Puerto Rico might have surpassed La Havre for me, but they are definitely close in quality.
Also, if NY/NJ people are craving board gaming, there is a local crappy hotel con in Morristown NJ this weekend. I was planning on going just for Saturday but helping a friend move instead then we are just going to play games at his place so we don't all have to pay their pricey admission. Was tempted to go Sunday instead since according to their schedule I could go Fresco -> Robo Rally -> 7 Wonders, but I'll probably need to have some downtime this weekend so Sunday is the odd day out. If anyone's interested it's calle Dreamation. Just google Dreamation 2011.
I can win maybe 10% of the time. Basically I have to get a huge combo, and get lucky and draw all the right cards in the right order, including the 6-developments that I need. I've had the most success with military strategies because they allow me to settle without spending cards, so I can use my cards for developments and double up.
I just feel like 10% is too low a win percentage. I'm not saying you're doing anything wrong since I know you're a smart man but how do you approach the game loosely?
I'llOh, shit. I forgot that it's tomorrow. I just got Le Havre.
If only I lived in/near NYC... =/
