Pave the Rainforest

Been planning for the fourth of July game weekend. Right now it looks like everyone involved is enthused and excited to participate. We're expecting 10 to 15 adults and their kids. It starts on Friday evening, and runs through Monday. This will probably be my last post until we get back late Monday night. All my spare time will be spent praying for good weather.

Played Niagara again. This time with 3 adults and 2 kids, Actually there were 3 kids, one was on my "team". Everyone enjoyed it. Very good family fare. It is not a game I would suggest playing exclusively with a group of adults, but adults enjoy it as much as kids. I see it just won the Speil des Jahres. I haven't played any of the other nominees, but I am not surprised that Niagara won. As I said, it is good family fare and that is what the SdJ committee is looking for.

I finally got in a complete game of TI3. Took two weekday evenings to finish the game. Probably took 6 hours all told. I really look forward to playing again now that I am more familiar with the action cards, and special abilities of the races. We had quite a few questions that weren't answered in the FAQ on the publishers website. I guess I will have to scour BGG to find some answers before we play again.

Have a good Fourth of July. And to you foreigners... Have a good Fourth, even if it isn't a holiday.

Good gaming,


PS The title refers to a bumper sticker I saw last night. I got a chuckle out of it, thought you might, too.

Heh, love that one!
