Monthly Acquisitions: October 2014

October already! Christmas is round the corner. Hard to believe here that a few months ago we were in the middle of a heat-wave. It really was hot, seriously hot. And, in a way, the good weather has prevailed. We go out for walks without a coat. Helga says that she cannot remember doing that before on the eve of November.

Fairly quiet this month on the game front. Knut brought two games with him on Saturday. Both were good. You should see the playing pieces in Black Fleet, they are remarkably good. It was made by a firm called Space Cowboys and the owners were the two men who set up Asmodee several years ago. They retired and sold Asmodee but obviously could not give up the games business. Black Fleet is definitely a labour of love. Thumbs up to them. The other game Knut brought was Aquasphere, the latest game by Stefan Feld. For a Feld game this was quite complex although once you get into the flow, the game became intuitive. You can plan your moves well in advance and you know what might be available to acquire some moves ahead. I loved it, Helga less so. I came last but I still wanted to play it again, always a good sign in my book. I get my own copy next week.

So, here are the October acquisitions.......
