Shelley and I tackle the dice version of Race for the Galaxy (Huang and Lehmann's ROLL For The Galaxy) and then head to South America for some precursor to chocolate in Cacao.

Cacao by Phil Walker-Harding from AbacusSpiele

Enjoy!

A solo show once again (what was I thinking? I'm OK on my own, but Shelley adds a perfect counter balance).  This time it's Schacht, Teuber, and Kramer.  BTW, I still have Web of Power and China on the shelf, as well as Anno 1503, but Hacienda went away a LONG time ago.

Shelley and I get Trains and its first Map Expansion to the table for a conversation on deck building with the addition of play to a board, then try out two from last year's Essen as well.

Too Many Cinderellas (some interesting ideas about narrowing the possible choices for the title character) from Taikikennai Games

Isaribi...
