Last Thursday: Kevin Nunn rocks with Zong Shi

Kevin Nunn and his wife Debra came over to hang out. Kevin also brought Zong Shi, his recently-finished prototype. I playtested an earlier version, and Kevin's tweaks have definitely helped it a little. The scoring is cleaner and setup involves a drafting mechanism that makes it the beginning rounds more equitable.

The group thought it was cool.

Kevin's got a publisher for this, from the sound of it. I'll buy it when it comes out... it's a good hour and a half or two hour game, with a good mix of luck and strategy.

Gamecount: Individual game sessions played for the year = 133, New game titles played for the year = 23.

Yes, the original publisher was Face2Face; I believe one of the principals there had been dealing with some health issues.

It's a great game, and has been playtested with a ton of groups. Should appeal to any fans of Goa, Caylus, etc.
