Best Martian Chess moment this year: Beating Andy in a 4-player game in Andy vs. Everybody. Granted, he whipped my butt in a 2-player game just before that, but hey - I can say I've beaten Andy. :)
I managed to come out with a win in a (my first) 4 player game of Martian Chess in Andy vs. Everybody. This was shortly after being "banned" from Fluxx for winning something like 4 games in a row. ;)
I'm a lot more proud of my Martian Chess win, though, for a few reasons. Fluxx is good, but I'm totally addicted to Icehouse games. Not to mention the fact that there's more strategy involved - most of which I learned by observing Andy's style of play. The first several turns where I was getting thoroughly trounced were especially helpful! So yeah. That would be my Martian Chess moment of the year as well.
(Of course if I get to play him next year, I'm sure I'll get completely and utterly annihilated, but then I can brag that I got completely and utterly annihilated by the creator of the game too! Either way, I get bragging rights!)
