New to me at the con: Dice Settlers. I enjoyed it. The explanation made it more complex than it played in the end. We all followed diff. strategies and finished rather quickly. Not ground breaking, but also not as mediocre as some reviews I heard before made it sound. Hardcore gamers might want to pass on it, but I think the dice bag building and the light 4x feel can still impress people that are not oversaturated by the surge of new games, yet.

@robert absolutely. And most people (myself included) are merely good at it, at best. If someone is really good, you’ll notice. We got an introduction to Snowdonia yesterday — with only time to play the first couple of rounds —, and that guy’s rules overview was close to perfect, from what I can tell. He had some other strange opinions, however :D
