Yay, Rachel is back. I picked her up at the ungodly hour of 4 in the morning on Friday.
We are deep into discussions about whether I should really go to BGG.con. If I make some mockups of my game, would I be able to show publishers there? If so, maybe I could look at it as a business investment.
Anyway, I finally got to play PR with her on shabbat, which I missed the last five weeks. We split games. We played with a few of the usual different buildings, and once again, both games were wildly different with different strategies. What a game system.
As I mentioned, I borrowed Traders of Genoa which I am eagerly awaiting to play with the group, as I think it will go over pretty well. Rachel also brought back a copy of St Petersburg for which I traded GeekGold to acquire. Hope to try that one out soon, too, although I have been led to believe that the strategy can get stultifying - I can't really trust that since that's what they say about PR, too.
