First: today was a very good mail day. First delivery guy brought me 8.5 kilos of playing cards from Austria, then regular mail included Veld Railroads and then another delivery guy brought me my Deep Thought order (1846, 1889). Happy as a clam.
The big news, however, is the new online version of Aether by Finnish Onni Games. Aether is a clever tile-laying game, where you try to surround point tiles with elementals, value of which depends on what their neighbouring tiles are.
The online version is a real-time game, but fortunately has a bunch of skilled AI players. It’s a fairly simple game, and the rules are posted on the site.
