Re:Précommandez l'Édition Anniversaire des Aventuriers du Rail. Wed, 16 April 2014 20:44
Bonjour,

Si tu le souhaites, il est toujours possible de pré-commander chez certaines boutiques de jeu (Philibert ou Ludifolie par exemple).

Ce serait quand même dommage de passer à côté d'une si belle édition !

Hio-hoi

Yep, I qualified from Finland.

Quite interesting tournament by choices of games:

Qualifying round: (15 players)
3 times 5er US multis with changing tables

Semi-final: (8 players)
1 game 4er EU in two tables -> 2 best in finals

Final: (4 players)
Just one game with Nederland-map, lol

I saw it 1st time in my life, but made it. So I won all 5 games in tournament and got ticket to Paris. Tournament system let a good change for luck too, but I was the luckiest it seems Wink

In Paris we shall meet!

So it came down to TAG as decider ... and it's the captain's fault that we didn't win Embarassed

Grats BTB, you did a great job

Thank you, Hecki, Chris, Trucker, Kasi,

Re:Fusion 2014, Play-offs, Schedule and results Wed, 16 April 2014 07:07
0.00 CEST : the toilet is clogged. All the poop from the last days shows up, and overflows. After 45 minutes of cleaning without trying to throw up and of working with the plunger, i found out that baby threw a ball in the basin. Ball that happened to be flushed at some point.
House stink, I stink.

1.45 CEST : Done, I order a burger to make sure I have enough energy.
2.00 CEST : I fall asleep.
2.30 CEST : Burger wakes me up, I need to eat quickly and java needs an update.

2.40 CEST : Dea, Hecki, Truck, Cromze, Elka, ommie, onyx, GFF, Lucu are here, nice crowd.
I need at least a 4-2 win. Chris needs 2.5 points.



1st game - Swiss : Basel Brieg / Deutschland vs Deutschland + Italy 71 vs 103(my start)

I decide to lock the west early since I need and have 3 white.
I take 4 grey, 6 grey, alas for nothing It does not pay off, and Chris piled up the tunnels in the east.
He gets way more track points, longest.
He played better. 0-1

Joker#1 dead.

2nd game - Big Cities : Las Vegas/Ny - Nashville/Ny - Dallas NY vs Chi Ny/Chi Atl/Ny Atl/Bos Mia 105 vs 128 (his start)

Nice : 3 tickets for me, yay... And argh, he keeps 4 then lays 2 to NY after 10 cards. Already tricky for me.
I open 6 black, then 2 to Ny to avoid the full block.I get out through 5 green, but I need to go to Dallas and Nashville.
I happened to be too slow while he managed his colors pretty well. He drew tickets in the middle of the game and found NY Mia, then finishes way faster than me.
Outplayed here, 0-2... No jokers left

3rd game - USA : LA Ny Den Paso (Win Lr) vs Sea La Cal Phoe 122 vs 117 (my start)
Down 0-2, I guess I am more relaxed now.
My colors are pretty good. I open 6 orange, he 6 yellow.
I answer 4 green, and 6 black.
He plays La Phoe = west. I am short on yellow and purple, but I don't want to be slowed down around Phoe/Fe/Paso, so I pick 2 more cards blind and find 2 lucky yellow.
I can play 4 red, then 6 purple, and 4 white to Chi to be flexible around NY.
He goes to SF, then 6 white and 6 blue. He's fairly fast against the start while I need to reach NY.
He does not have 6 grey, and he goes to Paso with 3 purple then 4 red to Dallas... whew we tie longest.
It sounded like 3 pink to SF instead of 2 extra yellow + a loco would have allowed him to get 6 grey.

Puh : 1-2.


4th game - USA 1910 : Las Vegas Miami/LA Oaklahoma (Winni Santa Fe) vs Montreal Dallas Port Hou (SSM Mia) 134 vs 122 (his start)

Pretty tricky combo for me : I need black, Vegas and 6 red which are a bit more attractive in 1910 than in regular USA. My luck he ended up with a trickier combo.
Bad news I have 0 black/3 yellow/4 red at 38 cards but 6 locos. He burns 3 locos on orange, I give myself another pickup : 1 red, 1 black.
He plays 6 yellow, 6 purple, 1 to Port, 2 to Pitt, while i throw 5 locos on black, 2 to vegas and 6 red. I have 9 green, 3 are open on the pile = he has 0. I connect peacfully via NO.
No locos left, no 5 yellow to go to Oak, I might be too slow.
Guessing tickets in 1910 is pretty tricky. He goes down to Fe.
Phoenix Boston ? LA Atlanta ? Duluth Dallas ?
I have 3 of a kind to spare, so I choose LA. He then lays 1 to Hou. Argh Port Hou, Port Pitt ? That might be too big to compete against.
I realize that he's slower than I thought. He connects 3 to Montreal: Montreal Dallas ? Really ? Gives me a win instead of something close to a tie.
He draws (4 to find) and finds nothing.

Ayayay : 2-2. Stayin' aliveee

5th game - Asia : Peking Saigon/Chita Shanghai/Irkustk Dihua (Mos Cal) vs Kathmandu Calcutta/Astrakhan Hanoi 103 vs 45 (my start)

2 main objectives with my tickets : 2 red and 6 grey to get in the way of 4 of the 5 big tickets.
I open quickly with 2 red in Hanoi, my luck... He answers with 2 orange, and 2 black in Mandalay. I make sure I can connect to the north with 2 grey to Peking and 4 purple via Xian. We then complete our hand, and he goes to Bangkok. Either he tries to be sneaky to Hanoi or Singapore. I kill Hanoi with 2 white, I can still take care of Krasnoyarsk later.
He burns 2 black + a loco to Singapore. Ok, he tries to be flexible to reach Hanoi, no way you give up your black and then go to Krasnoyarsk.
It works well for me, I need Saigon anyway, and I can work on my number of cities connected.
I also lay 6 grey, then connect Irkustk, Chita and Shanghai.
Thanks locos for your contribution

He can not complete his big ticket.
3-2 The show must go on.

6th game - Europe : Pal Mos Berlin Buc (Paris Zag/Zur Brind) vs Stock Wien/Bruxelles Danzig (I can only Imagine Ed Ath as a big ticket) 128 vs 99 (his start)

Nice tickets for me. I have 7 locos at 36/38 cards, I decide to be patient and keep my options open. (It looked like he had only 2 or 3 locos)
We are actually both patient. He shoots first with the 8-tunnel with red : 1 red and 2 locos = miss.
He probably needs it, he's been waiting too long. I go for it, with 6 orange and locos, and pay 2 extra.
I am now down to 3 locos, and 2 of them are needed for the ferry.
He takes the 6 tunnel, and I take War-Kiev then 4 to Berlin.
He locks Petrograd with 4 grey, 4 blue and 4 white, while I go peacefully to Kharkov then Moskva.
He also blocks Frankfurt with 3 black. He looks pretty defensive, I feel confident. I go to Bucuresti, and decide to wait one more turn before claiming the 6 ferry to optimise my hand.
He takes Pal Smyrna. I am not too worried, he does not have a big ticket nor he can compete for longest. I connect via Sofia/Athina, then can go to Palermo with my remaining locos.

He connects his tickets, lays a station in Petrograd.

I clearly had better tix and a better hand in this one.

4-2.

chris vs Sysy :
2 vs 4

It was our third final in 3 years, I am happy for my loyal teammates that we finally get the final win Smile
Your motivation and team spirit are rewarded !

Thanks GANG for the hard fight, with a crazy scenario (5-1,0-6,5-1,2-4) !

When I hear about 'Euro map = luck', 'Asia map = block is easy', 'AAT is too specialized', 'TAG euro = block' etc..

That's we end up with only US map stuff.

Nobody was born an AAT player, you become an AAT player.
Nobody has a huge edge in Swiss, Asia or 1910 maps. Everybody can catch up pretty fast, even faster with the help of a teammate.

We offer different formats/map : and instead of trying to master them, too many players would just avoid them and would stay in their comfort zone.

Re:FUSION CUP 2014 evaluation & questions Wed, 16 April 2014 20:46
I can say that I tried: played 66 practise games on EU map for 2 matches (6 games). Apparently that wasn't enough, because I still lost all 6 EU games in FC. I have no problem admitting that is (partly or even largely) due to their greater skill and far greater experience, but e.g. in one of those matches I had 4 tries at a tunnel (in the 3 games combined): none was free and total extra cost was 6. In the same match my opponent took 5 tunnels: 3 were free, the other cost a total of 3 extra trains. I don't think there can be much doubt that this (completely random event) in itself would have a major influence on any match, so I still feel EU is inferior to e.g. US or CH.
Obviously all the games are to some extent luck-driven: you can always get bad tickets and / or bad colours, but only in EU can you get this totally random good or bad luck with the tunnels on top of that.

These 66 practise games I played - as I usually do - against all comers, so a good deal of them were against (very) lowly rated players, but I still managed to loose even quite a few of these, which I don't think had anything to do with greater skill on their part Shocked .

Re:Mini-expansion: Arctic Invasion Wed, 16 April 2014 02:49
We just played with the Aqajarsiorpuas, and even though the 3 tokens recieved are one of the lowest, they still managed to do a lot of damage with the Were- Power. I think that if it was 4, they would be too good in some combinations. They came in handy against the Skeletons.

The damaged dealt to the opponent is very big. Losing two tokens. Although that's not bringing you many coins usually.

Like Dwarfs or White Ladies, they are weak in numbers. And it doesn't always reflect the abilities they have. But sometimes they end up being a good option.

Re:Mini-expansion: Arctic Invasion Wed, 16 April 2014 15:28
in a game of winning victory coins and territories though, they are a little handicapped.

Nothing for the AQAJARORSIORPUAS aid them in accruing extra victory coins and races which normally share this trait have 6 Racial tokens as a base. Agreed, due to the great power potential for the AQAJARORSIORPUAS, it should be lessened but 3 is too harsh.

Id say playtest them with alchemist (a great playtesting ability!!) and see how they are. I'd wager that they will barely get a chance to use their racial power UNLESS partnered with were/commando/beserk.

This is a bit too acute, by no means bad but 4 would help them out a bit more and make them slightly more viable with other powers.

For the Sky version, why not set :

- Cloud regions that could act like Hills or Fields, with some special one with a Storm
- Rainbow regions
- Empty Sky regions that act like Seas and lakes (mentioned by someone before
- Swarm of bird regions ?
- Satellite regions !


Powers : Tornado, Meteore, Balloon, Stary...

Races :

- Witches (and their flying brooms, 6, maybe 7) : for each Witch you redeploy from conquested regions, gain 1 VP.

Bound to be updated regularly ! I actually like this idea a lot and I can't believe I didn't come up with it.

would buy. it would be difficult to differentiate the regions though in the Sky.

A more design friendly idea would be outer space with moons, planets, asteroids, gas giants and stations as regions.

As Alexis Beuve (Praxeo) says in "La guide tactique et stratégique", playing M44 without the Air Pack is like playing "Memoir 1917" and not Memoir 44. Very Happy I got my planes at Amazon and downloaded the rules from DOW. It's not big deal if you really want to get the full experience. I just wonder when M44 will allow Air Rules on M44 online. That would be veeeeery nice Rolling Eyes

Hmmm I didn't know that about the German edition. Not sure that the wife would be too happy if I bought more. She already had this look of 'You did WHAT' when I came home on Saturday and told her I'd bought more Memoir...

I'm just soooo glad I held out as long as I did on the Air Pack. Had a couple of chances to buy it at around the £100 mark but I kept thinking there's always the possibility I will find one cheap one day. To have found two complete copies so cheap within a few months of each other is just staggering. I mean, I know that it's not the most popular expansion in terms of the air rules themselves, but tbh I really wanted it for the scenario book and all the visual reference cards. Now I have two copies of them all. Huzzah!

Additional - ok, it turns out that the Air Pack isn't *quite* complete, as only one of the airplane cards is in there. All the other reference cards are though. As far as the tiles and counters for all the expansions, I haven't mustered up the courage to go through them all yet - there's just a massive jumble of tiles, counters and plastics.

But, looking at the base game led me to find that it is one of the highly desirable German versions. Nice!

Re:Differences between Core Games? Wed, 16 April 2014 03:22
I had the same experience with my second base game. The bleached tiles bug me when playing overlord with my nice first base game. The US infantry figures were slightly dis colored and clearly the plastic did not set properly in some. I suspect it was not an isolated problem because DOW support basically refused to help. I mean I always assumed the problem was too big to rectify.

The first copies were made in Germany. With rising costs, some later copies were made in China. The difference was clear, though I think lately they've been better.

I started with the Made in China version and was quite happy until I got my second base game which was the Made in Germany version. The differences in quality are marked, especially the dice which have long since worn out from the Chinese version.

With Operation Neptune round the corner I'm tempted to get a 3rd base game (second hand?) on UK e-bay but will only look for the German version - if they are still to be had.

I notice the box to be more soft colored (or not?)


The German version does not carry the 3 Award logos on the cover, only the DOW logo in the centre. I think also the box has a matt finish, not glossy.

You can actually feel a difference when touching the box, the older one has a slighty rough surface (like a carton) while the newer one feels smooth.

Sadly this won't help people if they are buying the game online. Very Happy
