GAME: Citadels
TEACHER: Matt R
START TIME: 6:30
DURATION: 90 Min
# OF PLAYERS: 5
URL: BGG Link

Figured it was time to bring out this classic...

"In Citadels, players take on new roles each round to represent characters they hire in order to help them acquire gold and erect buildings. The game ends at the close of a round in which a player erects his/her eighth building. Players then tally their points, and the player with the highest score wins.

Players start with a number of building cards in their hand; buildings come in five colors, with the purple buildings typically having a special ability and the other colored buildings providing a benefit when you play particular characters. At the start of each round, the player who was king the previous round discards one of the eight character cards at random, chooses one, then passes the cards to the next player, etc. until each player has secretly chosen a character. Each character has a special ability, and the usefulness of any character depends upon your situation, and that of your opponents. The characters then carry out their actions in numerical order: the assassin eliminating another character for the round, the thief stealing all gold from another character, the wizard swapping building cards with another player, the warlord optionally destroys a building in play, and so on.

On a turn, a player earns two or more gold (or draws two building cards then discards one), then optionally constructs one building (or up to three if playing the architect this round). Buildings cost gold equal to the number of symbols on them, and each building is worth a certain number of points. In addition to points from buildings, at the end of the game a player scores bonus points for having eight buildings or buildings of all five colors."

I am sad. :(

I have a nasty cold that has decided to take up residence in my chest. This cold is my new Nemesis as I have to miss Nemesis tonight.
Have fun y'all.

Nemesis please; your description a few weeks ago piqued my interest…

I am going to bring a deliciously devious game to CC this week.

GAME: Neue Heimat
TEACHER: Matt R
START TIME: 6:30
DURATION: 60-90 Minutes (with Teach)
# OF PLAYERS:5
URL: BGG Link

DESCRIPTION:
Tactical bidding game about building the highest scoring houses in three building rows. Simple rules, deep & devious strategy.

The levels are different coloured cubes with numbers from 1 to 6 on it, that are dealt via auction in each round. The first one of a new colour you purchase fixes this colour as yours for the rest of the game and the final scoring. Players also bid for additional pieces to shorten (or lengthen) the lanes and rooftops to finish the houses.
You pay with cheques, each of 1 million euros and can establish an "illegal cashbox", counting at the final scoring, too.
The game ends, when there are two rows completed. The houses on these score positive points, regarding the numbers on the levels and the rooftops, the ones in the third row are scored negative.

Tough bidding game, unforgiving and rather deep for the way it looks.

I love Concordia. Sign me up.

UPDATE:
The first post has been updated to reflect all current requests.

Sorry, Elaine, Dyson & Parker... you all signed up for games that already full.

For those interested in CASCADIA, I'll see if someone else could bring a second copy and we can get another game of that going... or you could sign up for another game.

I can supply, teach, and run a game of Cascadia for 7:30 Mike. I will take 1 spot and room for 3 more...
Matt

Daniel:
I checked with Derek and we decided to start another thread for tracking requests:

Admins:
This thread can be archived.

I checked with Derek to see if he wanted to continue managing this list and offered to maintain it if he wanted a break. With his blessing I will continue where he left off...

Sometimes, there's a game you want to play, but you don't know who can bring it out, so this is a space for sharing those requests. I'll do my best to keep the list updated when someone responds to a request or if someone posts that a request can be moved from the active list to the fulfilled list.

Post your game requests for ChewsDay Challenge here!
