I have the Dragon Mag edition on CD-ROM; may have ot print this out... Poor rules too. .fun. It is just an uphill race.
Just need to print it. Code Monkey like you a lot.
Very simple and nice. Weak planets just get Busted everytime, Strong planets are impossible to dislodge once drawn.
I'm sure this would seem cool if you got it out of Dragon Magazine back in the 80's. The spinney thing just doesnt seem to go downhill correctly. Our game was only two players; the game seems like it would be better with more. Just got a copy of the new version for $1 at Conquest2006 flea market. Seems harder, with more downtime.

Set Collection
Description Go around catching villains. Contains 47 SSD (Ship System Display) sheets for Star Fleet Battles, included are SDD's for Q-Ships, Monitors, Light Command Cruisers and Seperate Booms & Saucers. "Although dice are used, there is a strong element of judgment in choosing the best course, when to change direction and when to risk hoisting your spinnaker - because the wind may change and catch you out." Small game which requires a huge portion of memorizing. After taking 5 penalties each, the player with the most goals is the winner.

Great game and very easy to teach. O jogo simula a tentativa confederada de retomar a capital da Louisiana em agosto de 1862.
Play this with GBACW available online. Seriously, though, the production is quite good, even though it comes in an itty bitty box. Especially the unit activation system is innovative and works well. Idéal pour l'initiation.

A gimmicky children's game. Actually a pretty cool kids game.

Description Orb Quest was Microquest #8 in the Metagaming MicroQuests series, programmed adventures for Melee and Wizard. Fleeing to a mysterious mansion, you must gather any materials you can find to protect yourself and fight for your survival against a legion of infected beings! The board consists of 7 squares each with from 1-5 spots for the cones.On his/her turn the player rolls the die and moves the squirrel in any direction the exact number of squares. If the player lands on a square that's filled with cones then he takes all those tokens into his pool and ends his turn.
Comments
I enjoy this game, but the endgame in story mode really kills a lot of the fun.
At last...a deck-building game that I like.

Up to 6 players have this buzzer pad in front of them and the first one who hits the button gets to answer. You must choose between "normal" and "risky" movement. Home Page: http://www.acemurdermystery.com/content/halloween/halloween.... Cosmic Encounter. The player who guesses correctly may take the card and the one who collects the most cards wins the game. Contents: Cosmic Encounter - Eon Expansion #2
Comments
Complete. Donations only please, greatly appreciated! I don't recall any of the specifics other than the Drag portion. Of course, then there might need to be stacking of 2 units.] In addition, diagonal movement only expends 1 MP, an oddity that in practice doesn't affect too much. Movement rates are odd, I would argue that Cav 4 MP, HQ 3 MP, Inf & Art 2 MP would make more sense.

Mechanic Dice Rolling
Description This game is made after classic detective Sherlock Holmes. You start at the start square and move along spaces. Wooden blocks are used to depict army sized units that create "fog of war" by not revealing unit type and strength until committed to battle. The game is played on an 8x8 grid or chessboard.
Comments
Supposed to be a decent expansion.
A birthday gift to my baseball-loving son from???
I'm looking forward to playing this one. Double sided so you get 2 games with each expansion pack.

Set Collection
Description Want to teach your Little Leaguers the basics of baseball? Players are given a set of square-ish cards which are to be played onto the table, which has a cardboard castle battlement layout. Want to do it all from the comfort of your home? These men have to be moved to the other side of the board to win. At their turn the players throw the die. You can't horde too much gold, though, or it'll go away! The fun is when 4 people play, as "attackers" will come from all the 3 sides!!! Gain gold and prestige by fulfilling the orders of the Guild Hall craftsmen.
Comments
Have only played with 2. I played a 2 player game with my 8 yr. Very nice economic engine game. Probably better as a two player game than with more where it devolves into a Take That type game with little control.
Very random play with 4 players. An interesting game, nice cards, and I even did up cards for the expansion... Really worth buying and playing lots of times.

Dice Rolling
Description A political game where players are trying to garner enough electoral votes to win presidency. Ages 8 and Up. It can be played with 2, 4, 6 or 8 players and one referee. The players lay out the "Monster" cards randomly onto the game's spaces. In Puppy Pals Bingo, you must match a color, pattern or shape to one on your board and find a new home for all your little puppy dogs. Each card has strengths and weaknesses depending on where that card is located in one of the "Arenas". The player with the MOST cards, once the last one is battled for, is the winner.
Comments
Plays really much like original carcassonne eventhough there's a new theme and one new feature.
Played a number of times. It's tough to get used to, but it's a cool twist on the Carcassonne mechanics. There would be no reason to buy the original unless you want to buy ALL of the expansions.
Of all the spin-offs for Carcassonne I think this is the worst. Quicker and more dynamic.

Mechanic Worker Placement
Description A fast-paced, comedic non-collectible card game where you, the player, control a Busload O' Geeks trying to survive Goon-Con, the greatest game convention in the universe. Each team has 5 balls that they need to hit through 3 gates and then over the finish area. Units are from brigade to divisional level. The board shows 10 spaces.
Comments
--Apr2011-- This one's pretty much out of my league for the moment: I was annihilated on the first play. Innovative beach landing rules taking into account high/low tides. I enjoy the added chrome and the fact that it's not easy to manipulate the trains with multiple companies. Original Jedko version from 1973 (sigh). I did most of my damage early; I was a little stubborn..." Opponents comments regarding the 3-player game make me lower rating from a 10. Suffers, similarly to the original Russian Campaign, from lack of (shorter) secenarios. One of the more bizarre tile mixes I've ever seen.
All of your instincts about 18xx will be wrong here. Love the idea of halts. Would have liked to play this with a player at some point. Gameplay: ★★★:halfstar:☆ Replayability: ★☆☆☆☆ Fun/Social: ★★:halfstar:☆☆ Components: ★★☆☆☆ Rules: ★★★☆☆ You needed to watch the other players and try to prepare for what they may do in the next few rounds... Overall, the economic system alone makes this a cut above many wargames where there is no limit to the attacks you can make...in this game, war costs money, as it should. ***update, traded, so I doubt I'll play this one again.
