Session Report, in which I thoroughly trash Feurio

The latest Jerusalem Strategy Gaming Club session report is up here. Games played: Feurio, San Juan, Santiago, Wildlife, Caylus, Princes of Florence, Settlers of Catan, Tichu, Lost Cities, Bridge.

I trash Feurio, and pretty much trash Lost Cities as well. I also hop around from game to game, and play several simultaneously. What a good host I am.

Luckily no one played Monopoly, or we might have ended the evening like this poor fellow, who was beat up by his friend after the game in an argument over money. Children: Monopoly is bad for you. Play something else.

On the opposite end of the spectrum we have a series of games invented by William Li at the University of Toronto, games which apparently assist people suffering from hemiplegic cerebral palsy. But, as any true vocal defendant of artistic freedom in video games will tell you, this game is no more beneficial to society than, say, Super Columbine Massacre RPG, so who am I to say?
