Princes of Florence

This week I busted out an old favorite of mine - Princes of Florence. I have trouble getting this game to the table because it's one of the few games I'm EXTREMELY good at. Like, I've won tournaments. I have a group of four other experts that I get a semi-annual game in with at certain conventions. But I can't teach new players, because it's just... it's not fair. But everyone really wanted to try this, so I broke down and taught four new players the ins and outs of the game, and what they should do (and avoid letting me do) if they want to boost up their score. I mean, obviously since I've been talking myself up about this game so much I ended up losing by a single point. It was still an awesome time, and now I've got four new players who can put up a real fight against me. That's exciting.
