Description: n 2001, 2F-Spiele published the original Funkenschlag.In 2011, it is time to look back...a long time back! To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the original Funkenschlag, designer Friedemann Friese will take you back in time and let you relive the early beginnings of mankind. True to the name of the German edition (a literal translation of which is "Flying Sparks"), it is time for Funkenschlag: Die ersten Funken, or "The First Sparks".The First Sparks transports the Funkenschlag mechanisms into the Stone Age. The order of phases during a game round, the player order, the technology cards: you know all these parts from "Funkenschlag". But what is new? What is different?The First Sparks is much faster and far more direct. You are immediately part of the action. Each turn, each decision is important. As a clan leader you decide on the well-being of your clan during the Stone Age. You need to develop new hunting technologies and get new knowledge - to successfully hunt food or to learn to control fire. With the help of these skills, you will harvest enough food to feed your clan and spread it far enough to reach new hunting areas.In a game of The First Sparks you are always confronted with many decisions: Which technology cards offer you the biggest advantages? When is the right time to spread your clan on the game board? Which hunting areas will grant the most food? Reaching new hunting areas or trying to secure parts of the game board for your own clan are important factors for your strategy. Empty spaces are cheaper for you to settle compared to spaces in which other clans are already settled. If you are the first to increase your clan size to 13 clan members, you win The First Sparks.

This sounds awesome, you need to come out to Vegas and set up something like this. Local shops set stuff up and dont advertise except to their regulars, no flyers no social boards, just their damn gaming Illuminati.. Question though, are you in the biz, cause this post is on point. I have zero questions about whats going on after reading this.. Watchmen02

I have a good group of friends in San Diego that let me couch surf from time to time. Sore necks and flat beer in the morning, I miss the single life..

Con Report

Hi, well it was another awesome time at Game Days. Over 150 people showed up.

Worst Part;
That was some problems with the Tichu tourney. Some people entered as a paired team, others signed up as solo seeking a partner. The problem came when half a team didnt stay, was busy in other games, etc... The solo peeps (me) got assigned to 3 different partners. When to rules clearly stated, you may only change partners once.

All and all things went well.

I had a full table for the First Spark demo. Yes, i did not do well in the Tichu tourny 1/2. I didnt join the TTR Asia tourney, im not a fan of it. I won at Power Grid, and I lost at Power Grid, but got to play it twice, so I win any way. Learned how to play Ztolkin, the Mayan calender game. I also learned a couple of other games, cant recall their names.

Best Part;
So one of my gaming buddies ( who introduced me to LNOE ) is mainly a pirate fan. We played the longest game ever of Merchants and Mauraders, we started around 1:30pm and ended around 6pm. We had 2 newbies with us. I had to stop at 3pm for my Demo, so it really wasnt that long. About two and half to three hours actually. Yet, it seemed longer. My pirate buddy kept losing or needing new ships and captains. He eventually went merchant. I won by attacking and sinking anything near me. Like a pirate should, i told him.

I meet a bunch of new people, from all over the area. Played games almost around the clock. The only thing i miised was seeing you there Watchmen01

I also picked up Village and the only Power Grid map i did not own, Russia/Japan.

EuroQuest in November, start Planning.
