I subsequently expanded too, squeezing out poor Terence who had to contend with a small amount of space

I had to counter Nikki and Chew Ming's expansions too. Their settlements were intruding into our play area!

Here, Terence counters with his yellow settlements, building into my side of the valley.

The final positions. My red pieces had expanded into the centre of the board where Nikki and Chew Ming were.

Very cool. Looks a lot like Risk!

That game looks really complex!

It doesn't play like Risk if you were wondering. The transience of the villages, in a sense, reflect the times when annual flooding can wipe out whole communities.

Wilfrid, there are multiple paths to victory, no surefire means at all. Complex, it really depends on what you are comfortable with. I suspect you would be pretty good at such games.

Have you been playing board games for long? Looks interesting!

Darkspore, I have been playing German games since the mid-nineties when Terence, an old friend, introduced 'Modern Art'.

For wargames, I have been playing them since the early eighties when classmates introduced SPI's 'Napoleon at Waterloo' and the seventies when I discovered the Osbourne series of 'Battlebooks'.

What about yourself?
