Last weekend was another visit to Jyväskylä. I had bought them a copy of Dominion: Prosperity before — since most of my Dominion plays happen in Jyväskylä, I want to have those cards available. I didn’t take anything new with me, since there’s a decent collection of games available already. Here’s what we played:
- Dominion — Prosperity and basic set. My new favourite card? Venture! I had a brilliant deck going with Bishop to clean the chaff from the deck, Ventures, Worker’s Villages and Laboratories to get the money in hand and then just roll on! I won with a huge lead, like 120-70-50-40. Cool.
- 7 Wonders — Can’t avoid this, no. Four games or so. There’s a strong tendency to play the same strategy again and again, which contributes to the boredom. Not bad, but I wouldn’t rate this above 7. Four players seems to be a sweet spot for the game.
- Agricola — I’ve played 15 games so far, and only twice with the cards. I like the family game, it has enough challenge, especially when we play maybe once a year. The game’s swift enough, we played two games in two hours. Smooth.
