I started up a new game of both Takenoko and Tokaido, if you guys are up for another round.

There's nowhere I can't reach.

I would like to play board games. My board games name is Pangalin on the board games website. Board games. Please add me to the board games group for board games so I can play board games.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

Capo is proving to be a formidable opponent. I joined Tokaido, but I'll let someone else have a crack at Takenoko unless you need players.

I also created a table for Caylus, a game Mo0 and I had a chance to play this weekend. It's definitely complicated, but there's a high potential for trolling. In short, it's a worker placement game where you're putting buildings along a road from the castle, while also contributing materials to said castle. Each building lets you gather materials or build new buildings, but the kicker is, except for the basic start buildings, each building belongs to the player that built it. This means if I own the building that lets you build houses, you have to pay me a point to use it. There's also a white marker on the road called the Provost; any buildings past the Provost on the road cannot be activated. He steadily moves forward, but players can pay to move him forward or backwards 3 spaces, meaning you could put a worker on a building (and pay points to another player to do so), only to have another player pay to move the Provost back and cause you to get nothing. There's a lot more to the game than that, and folks should read the rules, but if you like Stone Age, you'll like Caylus.

I'll have to go over the rules but I'm always up for a new worker placement game.

As for the tables I've opened: We still have two spots open on both games. All those people who signed up and then never played a game should feel free to grab a spot. If the spot's not filled by tomorrow morning or so or whenever I get around to it, though, I'll just start 'em up.

How ya doing, buddy?

I'll join the Takenoko game, I need to hone my techniques! I nearly won a game earlier in live play but made a dumb move right at the end and blew it.

Pang or Shin: Join Tokaido. It is a game about walking from Edo to Kyoto. Each spot on the board has either a piece of a panorama, or a bath house (netting you victory points), or a random encounter, or a market where you can buy one of four categories of trinkets, each category owned netting you further points. Then there are inns you stop at along the way where you can buy a meal from a pool of dishes of varying price on a first come, first serve basis. The person furthest back on the board moves wherever they like forward. And that's basically it. There are some "achievements" tallied at the end which give you victory points. You can read about those in the rules below the game. Simple game, but a fun one.

e: Since people new to the game are playing I decided to turn off all the expansions. To do this I had to "expel" everyone who had already joined. Whoops.

Pang is attempting to make his turns last as long as an actual trip across Japan.

I opened a new table for Caylus. Nutty and I played a game earlier and I really enjoyed it. Hoping to see how it plays with (at least) three players this time.

I'm getting creamed in 3 player Caylus because I didn't take the Stables into account. In 2 player, turn order rotates each round, but with more than 2 you have to waste a worker to change. Definitely a lot more competition to build stuff.

Since we're playing turn-based, smaller games seem to work better. I've created tables for Kahuna and Targi (both 2 player, pretty easy to learn) and Yahtzee, because why not.

How ya doing, buddy?

That's exactly why I want to try it with three. I'll join Targi. And Yahtzee.

I was speaking idiomatically.

I joined the Yahtzee game, hoping to extend my one from one streak in the game which given that I'd not played it for years and couldn't quite remember the rules was quite an achievement.

You'll need to rejoin the Yahtzee game. I think the site deleted it because I waited too long to start it.

Man, almost every turn in Tokaido I have to look at the rules again to remember what each stop does.

I was going to try Tokaido but I tried reading the rules while a bit stoned and it scared me a little.

Ultimately I'm not sure it's a game where knowing what you're doing would actually help.

It seems like there are some subtle avenues through which strategy can enter the game here and there, but not enough to make an enormous impact. It's like Snakes and Ladders but with no snakes and no ladders and everyone takes turns rolling 1 over and over.

That is the only way I play: stoned and a little bit scared.

also in re: complexity: This is why I initially wanted to play with all the additional rules. Makes it more of a game than a wait-in-line simulator. Ah well.

I just notice the extra category of "Rigole" at the bottom of Yahtzee. What is that and how do you score it?

Also, since this seems to be the only unstickied thread in this forum, I'm going to fix that.

if you hover over it, it should tell you - i think it's an almost yahtzee, 4 of a kind, and then the last one has to be the number on the opposite side or something?

A rigole is a four-of-a-kind with the last die being the one opposite the other four. More simply put, this means the last die must be the one that, when added to the value of the four-of-a-kind, makes seven. For example: 1-1-1-1-6 or 5-5-5-5-2.

e: Blame the French.
