RE: [trivalleygamers] Re: Invitation to Play - Games - September 20
- Hi Lawrence -
I am fine with playing Entdecker as I have played it before. In fact, happy
to play (almost) any game if it introduces a new member to the group.
But let me follow up with one question - is the game:
Neuen Entdecker (http://boardgamegeek.com/game/1334)
If you played an English language version of the game - it is most likely
the second game which was released in English as Entedecker: Exploring New
Horizons. Another way to tell - did you game have Huts for exploring
islands? (If yes, it is the second game). If it is this game, no need to
have your friend bring that copy as I own a copy also.
For the record, we played Entdecker March 3, 2004 and Neuen Entdecker April
4, 2005 (I believe you played Nautilus at this time as it was our "N" week
of gaming through the alphabet.)
So no problem with either version of Entdecker - we have played both before.

I would be willing to make it. I could also bring a friend, but his
condition is that we all play his new game we just baught. We played one
tutorial game and read the rules so were a little ahead of a game thats new
to us. Or we can wait until a better date.
What does every body else think!
Its Entdecker. we can bring it of its okay by you....

Re-reading the rules - I tend to agree as there is a warning....If Edward
winters (in Scotland), there is no Feudal Levy and England begins the next
year empty.....The only way to always have an empty England is to disband
any units that remain there at winter. This is also supported by a comment

BTW - If anyone is interested, it is possible to play HOTS online if anyone
is interested in trying this game: http://www.f2fgaming.com/ and Columbia
games does have a Cyberboard Module also.
