First plays: Targi....

I love a good strategic 2-player game that I can carry with me wherever I go - Lost Cities and Roma being prime examples of these.  One particular week in Cuba with my partner a couple years ago was filled with games beside the pool and ocean.  Ah, magic.   So I was definitely open to playing Targi at Origins this year after the buzz I'd heard about this game from the Kosmos 2-player line.  Unfortunately I was extraordinarily hung over when I tried it so maybe not the best first impression.  Fast forward to 2 nights ago and Vince and I sat down for a game.  And what a game! Quick-moving but meaty, this game takes a good hour to play and seems to have quite some interesting strategies.

The actions
It really is a worker-placement game but with a positional twist:  the first 3 workers you place determine where in the grid your last 2 workers will land.  It's a simple interesting mechanic that really elevates this game to something new.  As well, as you build your grid of tribe cards, many of them allow you to break certain rules in the game or provide end-game points.  The strategies and combinations from these seem endless given the number of tribe cards that will show up in any one game.

Tribe cards
Definitely looking forward to exploring this little gem more.

  2. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.

    En vacker konstnärlig skapelse av vävt läder, som ger ett skalskaligt utseende - liknar en snakeskin eller fiskhud, linjer utsidan av påsen. Läderens bältros är små läderringar. Det finns också gyllene accenter på väskan. Slutresultatet är svagt liknar kedjepost.

  3. Unlike many brokers, RIAs are required to put their clients interest first. The advisor can help set up a plan enabling a 20 something to manage both student loans and a 401(k). If you already have your own financial planner, ask if they give a free or discounted session to your child.

    "Hotels have plenty of items, all cute and travel sized, waiting in store rooms and all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask. And checking out from thug life shirts the hotel isn't like going through airport security. No respectable hotelier is going to want to pry open your luggage and search xxxtentacion shirt for shampoo.
