More games: Star Wars and Smallworld.


Neither one of us was excited to play Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Deck-Building Game.  I was not really interested because I don't like deck building games, Matt was not interested because he heard it wasn't very great.  But with two complete-ists in the relationship, play it we did.

I was impressed with the instructions, which were easy enough to follow without referring to a forty-page instruction guide and were written right on the board.
I also liked this game because I won!  We only played one round and I was victorious at the end of that round and we ended play.  This is the last time you will see this game at The Orange Door.  We donated it.
Then we played Smallworld, a game I quite enjoy, even more so when I win, which I did.  This despite carefully choosing a race with "spirit" in my first round so they would live on the board for the remaining ten rounds, only to have Matt destroy all of them, denying me that carefully chosen perk.

Yay, you finally won!! I kept thinking that I'd never played Smallworld, but now that I see your picture of it, I realize that I have. It's a fun game.
