Crew Members: Shmuly, Chavie
Was with the family this weekend, had a couple games that arrived after moving everything else to my new apartment.
Played one game with Shmuly before Shabbat, so we got to see the spaceship go off. He was Medic and I was Navigator, though I barely used my power. We got everything set pretty quick except the launch pad, and had to make sure we’d be able to wire it all. A couple close calls with the rope, since we never got the defrayer…but we made it as the Storm Meter reached 4, hanging on by a thread.
With Chavie we had Surveyor and Climber, a good combination. We built the landing pad early on, but with bad luck on the wind I was making sure to stay sheltered as much as possible. We did get the defrayer, and with Remote Fuser were able to safely wire everything up as we headed towards the launch pad.
With prices similar to 365, we bought this in the store downstairs. Chavie and I made it through all the learning scenarios, running out of time on the increased security level. Would be fun to play with four players or more.
Ravens of Thri Sahashri
Chavie agreed to play this and we had a really good time. First round we chased away two ravens and discarded a third–no cards were eaten, but only a single 1 point card was scored. Pushed my luck a lot at the end, got lucky that the last two ravens didn’t show up. Second round was fairly uneventful, but did score green twice–a four and a one. Chavie really wanted to tell me things but we made sure to be strict about no talking in the second and final round. We did manage to beat the final round as well, using red powers to discard from the Atman, and the score pile providing just enough to get by. The last card in the Heart was a 5, so it only took us three turns to win.
Glad these games got use right away, for now they are all worth keeping I think.
