Game Session Report 2/12/2006

Last Saturday I gamed with gamers of my own race. Ever since my trip to KL I have been gaming with Malays more and more. It is a a rarity for me. Usually I am the only Malay. I hope this happens more often. New gamers are always welcomed.

This game was my first game at the Game Vault for a very long time and it is also to be my last game there for the year. New gamers came to visit the shop, They are having a tournament on the next day, Sunday, and to no surprise they drafted. The reason why board gaming here has a critical mass of about 4.

The rest of us who do not have money to burn played a few rounds of Carcassonne. Again proving that tile laying games are very easy to teach. Even the new gamers understand the game just by looking at it between drafting rounds. We did a few rounds of basic Carcassonne and a round of Carcassonne with the Inn and Cathedral expansion.

Games varied from 2 to 4 players. Surprisingly Carcassonne players very well even with 2 players. It was slow but it is not nearly as bad as most multi player games. It does not feel condensed and become a straight up duel. It retains almost all of the same characteristics of playing it multi player.

I only took a few pictures. I always forget to take the picture of the board at the end of the game. I always want to start a new round instead.

So that's it. Last game of the year, a few rounds of Carcassonne, new Malay gamers, and MTG is still a thorn. What am I going to do for the rest of the year? The Nintendo Wii!

News Update.

Here is an update on the current local gaming scene. One of the local gaming shops the Game Vault is going to be closed till the 23rd of this month and no one reading this blog is to know about it. This basically means that if you are a regular there, I would not see you tell sometime next year.

They got a few new games there at the Game Vault. There seem to be an open box of Citadel, Haste Bock, and El Grande.

Finally. I'm just too lazy to put up the Session Report for the Saturday game today. My last game there for the year! I did however update the Web Album. For those who know me the pictures should explain it all.

I hate CCG/TCG game/gamers... ZZZzzz...
