Last Thursday we saw String Railway being played for the first time. It was published in 2009. Railway games are always popular at
String Railway is a unique train game that consists of colored strings, tokens, station tiles, and a board for scoring. To set up, first place the string tied in a big circle on the table to establish the field area for the game. Next, place a small circle of string to represent mountains and a line of string to represent a river. Finally, place the main stations for each player equal distances apart from one another.
On a turn, you draw and place a station tile, then try to place a railroad string between your stations in an effort to connect them in order to form your own train network. Connected stations earn victory points (VPs).
From BoardgameGeek Niagara is set in the not particularly safe world of rushing waterfalls. In the late 18th Century, the Shawnee and Iroquois Indians pointed white Desperadoes, Mercenaries and Adventurers in the direction of hidden caches of valuable jewels, in the hopes of turning them against one another and away from their territorial expansion ambitions. Players play as some of those Adventurers.
The first player to be able to claim ownership of five jewels is the winner. But the chase after the riches has some snags. The speed of the river is always changing, since the speed depends on the decisions of the players and the changeable weather. And once a canoe goes over the falls, it’s a hefty investment to replace it. And there are also the Desperadoes to contend with, who aren’t above trying to plunder the riches from Adventurers returning home. Niagara is distinguished by an innovative movement mechanic as well as a beautiful three-dimensional rendering of the waterfall setting. Spiel des Jahres 2005.
Some new terrain being used last Thursday as the interest in this games system continues to grow at the Headingley Games Club. http://www.infinitythegame.com/infinity/en/.
Our new game boards come out for use tonight.
This Thursday, at the club, there was another game of PANDEMIC. Players don’t compete: they have to cooperate in order to stop the game generated virus wiping out the population of Earth. Often players squabble and are wiped out. A fantastic game that is highly rated. The group managed to win using the second most difficult game variant. A significant achievement.
