To get back into the swing of regular gaming sessions was a great feeling. And it was a good session with one old and one new game on the table. The old favorite — well, for everyone except Peleg — was 7 Wonders. The other players were Yehuda, Saarya, and Sheer. Saarya did well with his military points, but again needed something from one of the other VP areas. Sheer and Yehuda were competing for the green victory points and both did well, with Yehuda slightly ahead there.
To my delight, I had managed to build up a nice spread of victory points across various color groups, and that was enough to give me the win. Yehuda and Sheer stayed for our first game of Suburbia. The theme is city building it is a tile laying game and essentially you are trying to use the interactive features of each tile to create an economic engine that generates income, reputation, and a growing population.
You need money to buy tiles to add to your borough. Your reputation determines how quickly your population grows. The player with the highest population at the end wins. Each time you cross a red line — going in the right direction, upwards — your income and reputation go down by one.
So you are constantly having to regenerate income and reputation. Each player has a secret goal. For example, to have the most blue tiles in the borough, or the least green tiles. There are 20 on the game and each player receives 2 at the start, choosing one to keep. There are also public goals. Each goal, if solely attained, generates extra population and so these are crucial.
Yehuda is excellent at these engine type games and he shot off to an early lead, concentrating on income, then switching to a concentration on growing the population. Sheer seemed more intent on trying things out than maximizing his score.
