Everybody seemed to like playing it. Even celticdragonfly, which is good or she'd be getting ready to strangle me for making her play it so much.
The new cards are prettier—this is the first version with colored backs. I also reworked the deck to put in three Wash pictures. He'd gotten cut from the previous version (I'm so ashamed).
We also played Empyrean, the new card game I got from Studio Foglio (Phil illustrated it). It's fun. Combines the card-trading of Advanced Civilization with the upgrade-buying of Settlers of Catan while still being a quick play. Winning works like Rummy, putting down sets of cards. As written it's for 2-4 players, but I think it would work well with 5-6. Just needs a house rule and some new homeworld cards—maybe I'll raid my Babylon 5 CCG.
