Fun with Hugin and Munin

Gwen and I had played a game of Odin's Ravens at BGG.con last year, but that was the extent of our exposure to it. We both liked it, so I got it for Gwen for Christmas, and last night we broke it out of the shrinkwrap to give it another try. It is a neat little racing game that turns out to be very efficiency-based. You only have a limited number of movement cards you can play each turn, so you want to get the most bang for your buck. I realized last night what the store of face-down cards really does for you: It helps to keep from having to burn through pairs of cards to get through land types you don't have cards for. You can save up the cards you can't use right now in order to make efficient use of them later. I expect this game will see a fair amount of play in 2007.
