- Jan 3, 2008All,Apologies, I really haven't had the time for games last year, so I can nominate very few (only games I have actually played, although not necessarily at LBGC)!FWIW, here's my nominations:Game of the Year:History of the World (I know, I know...)
Railroad Tycoon (If it were better made - and not quite so LARGE - I'd havebought a copy...)Team RoboRallyStruggle of Empires (I DO have this one!)Wallenstein (if we played it this year!) OMG - was it really 2006 that I last played Wallenstein?
The allocation of civilizations in History of the World - cumulative unit count and keep / pass decision
I just love hauling those blocks in Railroad Tycoon!I wanted to add the combat resolution "tower shower" in Wallenstein - but only if it was played in 07!Best filler:Werewolf (thanks Bob!) :-)
Team RoboRallyPeter J(allegedly the longest serving "member", but regrettably more notable by his absence than participation).----- Original Message -----From: Founder.To: lbgc@...Sent: Thursday, January 03, 2008 1:32 PMSubject: [lbgc] Re: LBGC awards 2007
To jog people's memories, and to fit with Neil's rider that the game
has to have been played at LBGC in 2007, and for fun, here is a full
list of games played at LBGC in 2007, some of them more than once.
Across 25 meetings in 2007.
Shadows over Camelot
Escape from Atlantis
Struggle of Empires
History of the World
Twilight Imperium 3
Save The President
Central Committee of the Supreme Soviet
Alles im Eimer
Fury of Dracula
Age of Steam
47 different games across 25 sessions, not bad!
And, just for interest, with John, Rob and Gordon moving away from
London, the longest-time current member is ..... Peter J. Followed
by Allan M. and Dave B.
Enough stats. Happy New Year.
