New (to me) – Part 4 of (more than) 4

01 Nov

There’s only one problem with my “Play lots of our unplayed games before the Essen haul arrives” plan – and that is when part of the Essen haul arrives before we’re through the unplayed games πŸ™‚

It’s probably just as well that the second Power Grid deck arrived today, ahead of my beloved Agricola. It means it got played πŸ™‚

Now I am lukewarm on Power Grid at the best of times. I don’t dislike it, there’s nothing that I particularly hate, but somehow the whole package fails to excite me – it feels like an exercise more than a game. Unlike Fraser, who would probably list it as a favourite, or the lovely Ann, who not only bought it for us at Essen but also airmailed it so that Fraser’s cravings would go away, and who loves Power Grid like nothing else. But I am a good wife and gaming buddy, and I know that it is important to drop everything and play the game when it arrives (this is why I am still up at 1am, catching up on emails. A girl needs priorities in her life.)

Session report to follow later.Β  For now, bed. πŸ™‚
