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