  • IGC Gamerternoon 9.16.17 - Unpleasantries

    Random Impact decides to play a random game of Unpleasantries. This is a Kickstarter game and if you've ever played Cards Against Humanities, it's a bit like that. Cards have a root word and several derivatives of that word on them and you object of the game is to use a chosen card (like the "black" card in CAH) and any cards in your hand to string together the worst insult and fling it at the judge! Best insult wins everytime. Canadians are probably too polite to play this game, as we found out. Watch for full details!

  • Tabletop Game Night 8.31.17 - Portal the Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game

    We tried this game for the first time ever on IGC Tabletop and while we were less than impressed at first, we discovered that it's actually quite deep once you get into the game. It doesn't look like much but this area control game with a side of dessert is really cool when you break it down. Check out as we fumble through this one to try and understand why anyone would want to play this weird game.

Rules

Synopsis of the Game
In Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan), players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Setup includes randomly placing large hexagonal tiles (each showing a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape and surrounding them with water tiles, some of which contain ports of exchange. Number disks, which will correspond to die rolls (two 6-sided dice are used), are placed on each resource tile. Each player is given two settlements (think: houses) and roads (sticks) which are, in turn, placed on intersections and borders of the resource tiles. Players collect a hand of resource cards based on which hex tiles their last-placed house is adjacent to. A robber pawn is placed on the desert tile.

A turn consists of possibly playing a development card, rolling the dice, everyone (perhaps) collecting resource cards based on the roll and position of houses (or upgraded cities—think: hotels) unless a 7 is rolled, turning in resource cards (if possible and desired) for improvements, trading cards at a port, and trading resource cards with other players. If a 7 is rolled, the active player moves the robber to a new hex tile and steals resource cards from other players who have built structures adjacent to that tile.

Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army (from some of the development cards), and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points (some of which may be held in secret), he announces his total and claims the win.
