10 Spot - Delayed Post From Last Week- I am always happy to play Merchant of Venus
I had been away from my job since mid-Tuesday, after setting up for a week of gaming after work. Instead, I ended up flat on my back, waiting on x-ray results or muscle relaxers for said back to kick in.
Last night, I finally made it out of the house and over to Nick Vitek's place. Nick, John E., Luke, and I played the reworked Merchant of Venus, then Luke bailed. The three of us played Glory to Rome and 7 Wonders (with leaders).
I have mixed feelings about the MoV rework. The rules book is sorely abbreviated, and the overall palette was a little dark, especially compared to the original.
I picked up my Kickstarter copy of 1955: The War of Espionage from Nick, and asked him about a few things that will probably result in an interview posted here later.
