I got to play a terrific game of Egizia last night with family and friends. It took longer than it should have, but it was all new players except for me. The biggest stumbling block in explaining that game to new players is the work crews. You can only employ one at each build site, except for the "wild" work crew. I'll have to figure out a way to explain it better.
I think we're going to try out Survive! in the couple of days. Since I haven't played in some time, I will need to brush up on the rules prior to the game.
