Session Report, in which we play Antike for the first time

The latest Jerusalem Strategy Gaming Club session report is up. Games played: Antike, Tichu.

We play Antike for the first time, with pleasant results (took over 3.5 hours, though).

Antike isn't really my type of game, but it's OK. It wasn't so much that I didn't understand the details of conflict, but that I was in Abraham's path when he attacked early, and in a middle location where others attacked also, so I lost investments, and sacrificed to block Abraham which helped David and Jon more. One thing about the gold track is that you can't lose the gains, though people can beat you to the cards. Because of the non-aggression pact and his location, David didn't need arms and temples as much. I'm not so good at these types of games though, with geography and conflict. And there's nothing to do while people take time on their turn, like moving and placing armies.

I feel pretty much the same. I'm not so good at them.

On the other hand, if you look at the game as "how many resources do I need to win? 7 for this point, 10 for that point, etc..." and try to avoid conflicts, it's interesting.
