The holidays are over, and hopefully that will mean a slightly more “regular” schedule for my activities here at GamerChris.com. And in the vein, let me get started with a “Picture of the Week” from a game night that was actually more like 3 weeks ago. This was from my first play of Trains, which I enjoyed more than I thought I would.
I’ve heard some complaints about the components in Trains, and I just don’t get it. Some people have whined about how it should have train/track miniatures, or maybe some wooden choo-cheeples (a term I just coined, I believe) like in Chicago Express. But I really like the simplicity and clarity of the colored wooden cubes. And while the art on the board isn’t anything fancy, It’s still nice in a very utilitarian sort of way. But anyway, I like how it looks, and I think this was my best picture of it (even though no one at BGG has thumbed it yet).
