      Invitation to Games - 1 Aug

      LAST WEEK:

      Six players for a third week, but instead of finding another 6P game, we split into two groups.  Dan, Tim, and Dave played PUERTO RICO Other than hearing Dan tried a shipping strategy, dont know anything about the results or the score.  Lawrence, Ben, and Rich tried the training scenario of D-DAY DICE, a game where players are units that just landed on one of the D-Day beaches and are trying to consolidate their units to storm the bunker overlooking the beach.  Along the way, players will gain soldiers, items, specialists but also lose these under the direct fire of the enemy.  All this is controlled by the roll of dice.  The training scenario is a bit easier than any of the actual beaches, but does give players a good feel for game play and learning the rules. The three of us did manage to make the final push and occupy the bunker to win.  With time left, we did join to attempt to play a quick game of PANIC STATION.  Unfortunately, I didnt explain the overarching concept too well and there was some confusion how infection works in the game.  But compared to our earlier plays with fewer players, I did find the game much better with 6 players as the map was more claustrophobic and the items scarcer in general.  As we were running long, it did appear the humans just barely had enough gas cans to burn the hive.

      THIS WEEK:

      I havent heard any preferences expressed so lets get a final player count before making any suggestions.  Especially as we might once again split into two games if the turnout is as numerous as it has been the past few weeks.

      Please respond by Tuesday evening if you can make it for Wednesday….

              Based on responses to date - we are at 5 players with a strong possibility of a couple more. I mention this as it seems like we might split into two games

                Based on responses to date -  we are at 5 players with a strong possibility of a couple more.   I mention this as it seems like we might split into two games again on Wednesday (assumed 4 and 3 players) Looking ahead at the logistics, a second game might require a rules explainer to help get that group of players up and running.  To avoid any last minute confusion - any volunteers and/or game suggestions to help with this?  I remember a suggestion some weeks ago for SURVIVE (aka Escape from Atlantis) is there still interest in this?  Any other games?

                  I had expressed interest in Survive, and would still love to try it out. Though I certainly don't mind if it doesn't hit the table.
