Title: Re: Spirit Games Wednesday Night - 2012
Post by: Zarniwoop

Tried out a new game tonight Discover India which is a really easy game to pick up/teach but actually working out how best to place you token to gain maximum points is quite tricky which makes for a really interesting and strategic game. Players represent tourists visiting India as they visit each city they take a token with one or two symbols & Colours on which is then replaced immediately from the supply. If the city they visit has a festival token on it they gain a card worth 1 VP at the end, each token is placed on either an exchange space or directly onto their board but has to go on a space connected to a previous token placed there. At the end of the game players score for chains of similar tokens (so the ones with double tokens can be used for 2 chains) the longer the chain the more points (8+ scoring the most). Each turn players walk or fly to a destination but if someone has flown in the previous turn the next player has to walk which means placing their piece in a city linked to where the previous player went. The piece you collect from the city can be placed directly on your board, swapped for the piece you have on your exchange space and that placed on your board or you can "Buy" a piece from someone else's exchange space. TOP buy a piece from someone else you lose a VP, they gain a VP and then you swap the piece you collected for their exchange piece and place it on your board. Play continues until all boards have been completed and then they are scored. This is really a fun game providing plenty of enjoyment for repeated plays.
Final Scores: Paul:39, Sal:43, Caz:46 and Andy:47

Takenoko is really a cute looking game the pieces, artwork and models are all excellent as well being very colourful. The players have the dual task of taking care of the Panda by feeding it bamboo, but also have to look after the emperors bamboo garden keeping the plants growing. There are 3 cards types the players can collect which score for feeding the panda, the layout of the garden or the size and colour of the bamboo grown. There are several actions a player can take each turn but can only take 2 actions but you roll a dice at the start of your turn which provides an additional bonus. This is just FUN and CUTE! there is no more needed to be said, I just loved this game and it always proves popular when brought down on a weds night.
Final Scores: Carole:21, Paul:22 and Andy:30

Gubs This a fun, cute little game that plays really quickly. It is a little random and crazy but I think is a lot of fun as a start or end game of the evening.
Final scores: Andy:0, Caz:1 and Paul:3
