  1. Lacerda is my favourite designer. I think I've played all his games, apart from Escape Plan, and I own CO2 Second Chance and Lisboa. I backed the Kickstarter that's just finished for the deluxified Kanban. It's a great game but pretty ugly in the old edition. New one looks lovely. Not cheap though. All his games share a density that comes from very tightly integrated mechanisms rather than the way a lot of more complex games go, of having loads of stuff or being really long. Lacerda games don't outstay their welcome, and each decision is really meaningful. He also manages to tie the theme into the gameplay far better than most euro game designers. He's a genius. I persuaded my wife to play Lisboa the other week and she said she hated it, but she liked it when we played it again a week later. There is an obstacle to overcome to learn his stuff I think because they aren't like other games, but once you know them the playing time is quite reasonable.
  2. I got Nusfjord for a similar price around black Friday. Really like it for a mid weight Rosenberg that's much easier to get played than some of his meatier efforts, and is well under an hour in two player. Absolute bargain at £20.
  3. Just seen this, sorry! How can I help?
  4. Eagerly awaiting posts from those suggesting ASO have an anti-Ineos/pro French bias a couple of days ago.
  5. It's not the organisers that threw them out, it's the UCI. And it's really quite a stretch to suggest the UCI have been biased against Sky/Ineos for years.
  6. I believe it was filmed at the National Trust Back to Backs. Hard to get any more 'fabric of Brum', I would think.
  7. I just tried this by buying from CDKeys. Both codes they sent gave me a "This code has already been redeemed" message. Probably just me being unlucky, but maybe relevant information.
  8. They certainly seem like a shitty organisation, with highly dubious ethics, that's run by an arsehole. But then they're quite successful so you can see why Ineos want to sponsor them.
  9. People backing Kickstarters now: how do you feel about Brexit? Are you only backing ones that will ship from the UK, or are you just hoping something happens to prevent you paying import duty, or are you happy to pay that as well? I'm assuming anything that just says EU friendly will have 20% plus a handling fee added and it's put me off quite a few projects.
  10. I auto-neg any post that doesn't bother with punctuation/sentences. EDIT: He's edited his post, if anyone was wondering, despite calling me a fucking idiot. It was borderline incomprehensible before.
  11. I've played it once and liked it. It is a fairly dry economic euro, as you say, but within that category I wouldn't have said it's that heavy. Although obviously that term means different things to different people. There are other things I'd rather play. Lacerda stuff is denser and I'd prefer that. And the new versions of Brass I enjoyed more on the subject of economic euros about the industrial revolution. I'd happily play it again though.
  12. Added a few people from the spreadsheet as I need the three more friends quest. I'm MeurigPanda. EDIT: And if anyone wants to add me, it's 4987 0425 0379.
  13. I've been playing it too. I think the bit that it's saying is not available is the paint designs stuff. Presumably they've taken the servers for this bit down? If it's the same as on mine, you can just back out of that and pick a manufacturer's colour. Does seem a bit rubbish though, especially since it's on GwG. If they don't work any more they could surely do a simple patch that means it doesn't try to load it every time.
