Boardgames galore!

Of course I couldn't let a cloudy Saturday get in the way of board gaming ;) and it was totally worth it because I got the chance to play three new games:
- Dominion: A card game where players try to build a kingdom by buying different Action, Victory and Money cards. Reminds me a bit of a good Trading Card Game (without the Trading element, which is a plus in my book) and offers a lot of variety from game to game. I absolutely loved it and I highly recommend it to any fans of TCG like Games.
- Leonardo da Vinci: A game where players collect resources to create inventions in their laboratories. Pretty interesting.
- Container: A production and shipping game with a couple of flaws. First of all, the color choices of the designers are pretty poor (the ships colors don't match the players board and then there are light brown, dark brown and dark orange containers; try playing that with not enough light!), another problem is that to be successful one heavily depends on the actions of the other players. Nevertheless it was a challenging experience and I'd probably give it another go.
- Mystery of the Abbey: Clue with a twist. A monk was murdered in an abbey and the players try to solve the mystery through deduction. An entertaining and fun game which offers more options and depth than Clue.

The evening ended with another round of Agricola. Somehow I just can't seem to get the hang of it. Even though I got a head start with a good profession, I miserably lost again. Maybe next time...
