More pics from Games Night...

More gaming this Monday night at the University of Waterloo...  Much fun was had.

A game of the delightful little 1-2 player co-op Onirim while we waited.

Lost Cities, which I have yet to play

Lovely bits and scorecards for Inca Empire

The gorgeous board for Inca Empire
So many games that didn't get played...   :(
Dominion.  Of course.
Everyone started with Ricochet Robot when the night began.

Fun night although I really only played the 10-minute Onirim and Inca Empire.  And I must say Inca Empire was fantastic.  Heavy but relatively easy to learn and really well-balanced.  In fact, the balancing mechanisms were reminiscent of Power Grid.  The road-building felt a bit like Empire Builder.  But in the end, this great game was all its own.  Looking forward to playing it further.  I'm glad Z-Man picked this one up...

  1. I was excited reading about Inca Empire until you mentioned Power Grid. Anything reminiscent of PG turns me cold.

  3. Jacob, the game isn't half as dry as Power Grid. But the balancing mechanisms of turn order are as fundamental here as they are to Power Grid. The game itself is livelier and more interactive.

    Having said that, I LOVES me a good game of PG!
