Ron Gamble Reviews Tammany Hall - 07.18.2010

WHAT?

Tammany Hall was created by Doug Eckhart (Congo Line, Hatu Matu: Chief of Easter Island) and originally released in 2007. The original board was very, well, blah, and was redesigned by, among others, Martin Wallace (Age of Steam, After the Flood, Struggle of Empires, Conquest of the Empire, and many more). The new board looks like an old map of lower Manhattan from the 1880’s.

Tammany Hall was the political machine that controlled the Democratic Party in New York City from the 1790’s to about 1968. Aaron Burr used Tammany’s power to become Thomas Jefferson’s Vice President, but it was best known as the machine of William “Boss” Tweed. To learn more about Tammany Hall, you can either read something online, or (my suggestion) watch “Gangs of New York.”

HOW?

The board is divided into three areas with 15 total wards. Tammany Hall can be played with three to five players, but for learning games, three players is best. For a three-player game, the game starts with Area I, divided into six wards (1, 2, 4, 7, 6, 14). Area II is divided into five wards (9, 15, 8, 5, 3), and Area III is divided into four wards (17, 11, 13, 10). The map is true to the political divisions of Manhattan in the 1860’s. (The following explanation of game play will be for three players; the only difference is the area of the board available for play at the beginning of the game)

Ward 14 contains Tammany Hall, and is located in the center of the board. During set up, each ward is seeded with a different colored cube, which represents different immigrant groups brought into New York City: green (Irish), white (English), orange (German), and blue (Italian). Ward 14 always starts with a green cube, and the other five wards are randomly started with one green cube, two white cubes, and two orange cubes. Five cubes are chosen at random from the stock and placed in the Castle Garden section of the board (one cube for each player, plus two). Randomly choose a starting player, and you’re on your way.

The game is divided into sixteen turns, each turn representing one year. In the first four turns, play choices are simple. Each player places a token of his/her color (one of five colors) in an active ward, then has a choice of either placing a second token on the board, or taking a cube from the Castle Garden and placing it in an active ward (the second token or immigrant cube do NOT need to be placed in the same ward as the original token). If the player places a cube, s/he takes a chip of the same color and places it in his/her personal stock. These chips represent political favors owed to the player by the immigrant group. After all players have taken a turn in the current year, place unused immigrant cubes in the stock and draw five more.

After four years, it is time for the first election. Elections are decided in order according to arrows on the board, and every election starts with Ward 1. If only one player has a token in a ward, that player wins the election, and removes all but one token from the ward. If there are two or more tokens in the ward, there is a contested election.

To resolve the election, first count the number of each colored tokens in the ward. Then, look at the different cubes in the ward. For each cube color in the ward, players in the election count their chips and announce how many they have (in other words, if there are green, white, and blue cubes in a ward, any orange chips a player may have are worthless in this ward election). Then, each played decides how many chips to use for the election. Players choose secretly, but reveal simultaneously. Count the number of chips played, add them to the tokens in the ward, and the person with the most votes wins the ward election. All tokens but one (for the winner) are removed from the board. If there is a tie for the most votes in the ward, all tokens are removed, and no one claims that ward. Once a chip is played (or, once a political favor has been called in), it is placed back in the general stock, whether the player wins or loses the election.

For the first two wards, the winning player gets to place a cube of any color into any active ward. For the second two wards, the winning player gets a chip of any color to place in his/her personal stock.

After all wards have been decided, the players count the number of green cubes in wards they control; the player with the most green cubes (or, the largest Irish population) wins three green chips. If there is a tie, all tied players get three chips. This is repeated for the white, orange, and blue cubes.

Next, players get one victory point for each ward won. Whoever wins Ward 14 (with Tammany Hall) gets a bonus point. The player who controls the most wards is elected Mayor for the next four years (the bonus point for Ward 14 does not count toward the mayoral election). If there is a tie, the player with the most political chips is Mayor. If there is still a tie, then the player with the most green chips (then white, then orange, then blue) wins. The mayor gets three victory points, and hands out different jobs to the other players.

The Deputy Mayor gets a free political chip each turn, the Chief of Police is allowed to remove one cube from the board, and the Precinct Chairman can move a cube from one ward to a neighboring ward. The Council President can only use his/her role twice during a four-year term, but it is powerful. The Council President may place a silver disc in a ward, which then freezes that ward for the rest of the term: no tokens or cubes may be placed in or removed from that ward until the next election. After roles have been awarded, Area II is opened up and seeded with new immigrant cubes, and play continues for the next election cycle. After the second election, Area III is opened.

During the next four years, the Mayor is the starting player. However, this allows all other players to target the Mayor, with no chance for repercussions until the next year. Year Five also introduces the Slander chips to the game, which allows players to use political favor chips to eliminate tokens of other players from the board. Only one slander chip may be played per election cycle, and any player who does not use a slander chip during a cycle receives one victory point.

Elections are held in the fourth, eighth, twelfth, and sixteenth years, and the Mayor receives three victory points every time, even for the very last election. After the final election, players count their political chips of each color. The player with the most chips of each color receives two victory points; if there is a tie, all tied players receive two points. The player with the most points is named winner and Grand Sachem of Tammany Hall.

WELL?

If you read my Origins recap, you know already that this was my favorite game. I played it every day, and taught it to several people. It usually takes two elections before players understand the theory behind all actions. However, there is still much to learn about Tammany Hall. For example, it took until my third play to realize it is not ideal to be mayor after the second or third elections, simply because everyone guns for you. It’s this counter-intuitive strategy that gives Tammany Hall that devilish twist that all very good strategy games have.

Basically, I give Tammany Hall a rating of “highly recommend.” It’s got a good beat, and you can dance to it.

Why the ECW title hasn't gotten screwed on PPV. - 09.01.2009

By Sage Freehaven

I know a lot of people think the ECW Championship gets screwed over on pay-per-view - especially after the ten-second match it got at SummerSlam this past Sunday - but I crunched the numbers to show that it really hasn't gotten such a raw deal.

From Vengeance 2006 (the first pay-per-view after the ECW Championship was revived) up to Summerslam 2009, seven other championships have appeared regularly on pay-per-view: the WWE Championship, the World Heavyweight Championship, the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Championship, the WWE Women's Championship, the WWE Tag Team Championship, and the World Tag Team Championship. (Since the two tag titles have separate title histories even after the unification match at WrestleMania 25, the three Unified Tag Team Championship matches on PPV are counted towards both tag titles.)

Here's the numbers:

• The WWE Championship has been contested a total of 42 times, with an average match length of approximately 17 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 35:55 (at No Way Out 2009), and the shortest match for this title lasted 6:33 (at No Mercy 2007).

• The World Heavyweight Championship has been contested a total of 42 times, with an average match length of approximately 16 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 29:46 (at No Way Out 2009), and the shortest match for the title lasted 1:03 (at Extreme Rules 2009).

• The ECW Championship has been contested a total of 32 times, with an average match length of approximately 9 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 24:42 (at December to Dismember 2006), and the shortest match for this title lasted 9 seconds (at WrestleMania 24).

• The Intercontinental Championship has been contested a total of 16 times, with an average match length of approximately 10 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 17:36 (at Unforgiven 2006), and the shortest match for this title lasted 21 seconds (at WrestleMania 25).

• The United States Championship has been contested a total of 16 times, with an average match length of approximately 10 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 13:49 (at The Great American Bash 2006), and the shortest match for this title lasted 5:24 (at Cyber Sunday 2008).

• The WWE Women's Championship has been contested a total of 18 times, with an average match length of approximately 7 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 11:34 (at Unforgiven 2006), and the shortest match for this title lasted 3:13 (at WrestleMania 23).

• The WWE Tag Team Championship has been contested a total of 13 times, with an average match length of approximately 14 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 20:13 (at Armageddon 2006), and the shortest match for this title lasted 6:29 (at Vengeance 2007).

• The World Tag Team Championship has been contested a total of 14 times, with an average match length of approximately 10 minutes; the longest match for this title lasted 17:17 (at One Night Stand 2007), and the shortest match for this title lasted 1:30 (at Night of Champions 2008).
AJ Styles and his TNA PPV Record - 08.25.2009

As put together by Sage Freehaven.

First, I'll offer up a bit of trivia: from the promotion's first monthly pay-per-view (Victory Road in November 2004) until Genesis in January 2009, AJ Styles had a match on every monthly pay-per-view in TNA history (in the case of Sacrifice 2008, he had two matches); this comes out to 52 matches. His streak came to an end at Against All Odds, where he did not have a match, but he did appear on the show. After Against All Odds, AJ would have a match on the next five pay-per-views, up until Hard Justice, where he not only did not have a match, but he did not appear at all, marking the first time in TNA's history that AJ Styles neither wrestled nor appeared on a monthly pay-per-view event. (This raises the number of matches AJ's competed in to 57.)

This is key, because I've got two sets of records: one is for AJ's unheard-of pay-per-view streak, and one is for the entirety of AJ's pay-per-view career up through Victory Road 2009. I'll share the records for the duration of AJ's pay-per-view streak first, then the full records.

A couple more things before I continue: during my record keeping, I counted any match that was one of the last two matches on a pay-per-view as a "main event" match; I also made it a point to count any match that wasn't a standard one-on-one match or a standard tag-team match as a gimmick match (any match with a special referee wasn't counted as a gimmick match).

-----

~ The Streak ~

For the duration of AJ's streak, he wrestled 52 matches on 51 PPVs (as mentioned above, he wrestled twice on Sacrifice 2008, the only time he ever wrestled twice on a single PPV).

Overall Win-Loss Record: 26 / 25 / 1 (50%)
Gimmick Match Win-Loss Record: 12 / 16 / 1 (41%)
Title Match Win-Loss Record: 14 / 11 / 0 (56%)

World Title Match Win-Loss Record: 01 / 04 / 0 (20%)

Total time of PPV matches: 13:00:27 (approximation)

Main event matches: 30 out of 52 (58%)

The men AJ faced the most during this streak were Samoa Joe (11 times), Christopher Daniels (7 times), Sting, and Rhino (both 6 times).

-----

~ All PPVs ~

From Victory Road 2004 (November 2004) to Victory Road 2009 (July 2009), AJ wrestled in 57 matches on 56 PPVs.

Overall Win-Loss Record: 29 / 27 / 1 (51%)
Gimmick Match Win-Loss Record: 14 / 17 / 1 (44%)
Title Match Win-Loss Record: 16 / 13 / 0 (55%)

Legends Title Match Win-Loss Record: 02 / 01 / 0 (67%)
World Title Match Win-Loss Record: 01 / 05 / 0 (17%)

Legends Title Defense Win-Loss Record: 01 / 01 / 0 (50%)

Total time of PPV matches: 14:20:42 (approximation)

Main event matches: 33 out of 57 (58%)

The men AJ have faced the most during his PPV career are Samoa Joe (12 times), Christopher Daniels (7 times), Sting, Rhino, and Kurt Angle (all 6 times).

-----

~ Both ~

The following records apply to both AJ's "streak" and his entire PPV career.
Tag Team Title Match Win-Loss Record: 08 / 02 / 0 (80%)
X-Division Title Match Win-Loss Record: 05 / 05 / 0 (50%)

Tag Team Title Defense Win-Loss Record: 05 / 01 / 0 (84%)
X-Division Title Defense Win-Loss Record: 03 / 02 / 0 (60%)
World Title Defense Win-Loss Record: 00 / 01 / 0 (0%)

Shortest match: Sacrifice 2008 - AJ Styles and "Super Eric" vs. BG James and Awesome Kong (w/ Raisha Saeed) - Tag Team Match (Deuces Wild Tournament Quarterfinal) - 05:29
Shortest gimmick match: Destination X 2007 - Rhino vs. AJ Styles - Elevation X Match - 09:05
Shortest title match: Against All Odds 2008 - AJ Styles and Tomko (c) vs. BG James and Bob Armstrong - TNA World Tag Team Championship Match - 07:45

AJ's longest PPV match is also his longest gimmick match and his longest title match: the Iron Man Match against Christopher Daniels at Against All Odds 2005 for the X-Division Championship; due to the match ending at the 30 minute mark in a draw, the match went into Sudden Death overtime, which extended the match's length to 31:37. (AJ was the reigning champion going into the match and successfully defended his title.)

AJ has competed in three King of the Mountain matches, four Ultimate X matches, and four Lethal Lockdown matches during his PPV career. He has lost every King of the Mountain match he competed in, has won two Ultimate X matches, and has been on the winning side of the Lethal Lockdown match twice.

And we're rolling... - 04.06.2006

Just need to store this:


And we're rolling... - 02.14.2006

Sorry guys. Not that anyone reads this stuff here...
And we're rolling... - 02.04.2006

So I had my first Pro Wrestling Match.

I was "Massive" Matt Sforcina, and given that I outweight everyone else (and a couple of the tag teams) in the company, that fit. I was fighting Super Crimson Mask, the resedent monster/nutter of the company.

And the match went well, no-one was injured, and there weren't any major screw ups. Some minor ones, but nothing major. And it went well. It was a hot crowd of about 400, and they enjoyed it a fair bit. I even got a "Matty" chant, which is the sort of thing you wish for.

But in the end, the damm Mask guy got his feet up on my charge, and then hit a second rope clothesline, and alas, I lost. But come on, the monster used a drop toe hold earlier on. A DROP TOE HOLD. That just threw me off the page.

That said, I hear that a rematch is in the works for two weeks. But I'm not sure. "Massive" Mat just doesn't have what it takes. It needs someone badder, meaner, harder.

Someone with a much shorter name, for instance...
And we're rolling... - 01.31.2006

Anyone think it's Dr. George Zahorian? That's the only guy I can think of...
And we're rolling... - 01.26.2006

There I was, thinking I had a sweet name, then I open Byers' latest column and see-

Episode 9

Match Numero Uno: Q w/ The Smoke vs. Slyck Wagner Brown


Dammit. I'm Q! Not this loser.

Dammit.

Ah well.
And we're rolling... - 01.23.2006

My WM 22 Card.

Edge (C) w/Lita vs. Cena w/Chain Gang (Mark and Women divisions) vs. HHH w/Sledgehammer- Cena gets screwed at RR, HHH also gets screwed at RR (in his mind), and I don't want to see either man against Edge by himself.

Angle (C) v Benoit, 30 Minute Iron-Man/Submission/Really Awesome match. Benoit wins the Rumble, stays on SD. A guy can dream, right?

Taker vs. Mark Henry- Bye Henry. See you later. Don't go to TNA, please. Japan would love you.

Ric Flair vs. Booker T w/Sharmell, non-title match.- IC champ vs. US champ. Eh, I can'y find anyone for either man to fight, so give them each other, in a "who's the better champ" dealy.

Fit Finley vs. William Regal w/Paul Burchill.- Give them a license to maim each other like it was Starrcade.

JBL w/New Chick vs. Matt Hardy vs. Randy Orton vs. Paul Burchill vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Rey Mysterio, Money In The Bank Ladder Match- Long goes "No GM, cool concept = YOINK!" JBL can brawl and has lots of hardcore history, Hardy knows ladders, Orton would be the winner, Burchill is good, apparently, Lashley can be Kane and Rey can fly like a crazy MFer.

RVD vs. Shelton w/Momma- With the lead up to ECW ONS 2 beginning, Shelton's Momma would make him challenge RVD. This sets up the Shelton heel turn, and be a good match.

Trish (Possibly C) vs. Micki (Possibly C) vs. Victoria, Women's Title.- I'd have Micki counter the counter from NYR to win the belt at the Rumble, but either way, this is the single best women's match you're going to get in North America right now, so why not?

MNM w/Melina (C) vs. The Mexicools vs. Shane/Johnson/Gymini/Whatever Twins, WWE Tag Titles- Getting guys on the card.

Kane & Big Show (C) vs. Carlito & Chris Masters, World Tag Titles- Gives the new guys the rub of beating the ultra big team, and begins the Carlito face turn.

Simon Dean (C) vs. Spanky vs. London vs. Noble vs. Kash vs. Davari, Crusierweight Title elimination match- And just let them go at it, please!

Hall Of Fame Induction- Ted DiBiase, Ricky Steamboat, Road Warrior Hawk, Mr. T (Celeb Wing), Mr. Fuji, Yokozuna, British Bulldog, Owen Hart, Bret Hart.

Heat: 20 man interbrand battle royal, everyone who's left.

I think that works. 11 matches is a lot, but keep Taker's match short and the outside stuff to a minimum you could make 4 hours, easy.
And we're rolling... - 01.16.2006

This has been in the back of my mind for a while. Given Sega's status as pure software devloper, and given the long backstory, SSB seems the perfect place to have the ultimate battle. This is more for my own benefit to write down my ideas, namely this time round, the SEGA roster. Anyway, onto my ideas. (Yes, I know it's in development and this won't happen, but a man can dream, yes?

Assuming 25 characters (This is on Revolution, and thus the 25 Nintendo from Melee, or neat enough vs. 25 Sega sounds right, even if that means no Wario for me...), and making it solely Sega owned, not just Sega famous...

Sonic: Obvious place to start, to match the Mario set. Mario had 5/6, (Bowser, Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Luigi, and, technically, Dr. Mario). So, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Rouge, Shadow and Dr. Robotnick/Eggman (Still can't get used to that).

Alex Kidd: Before Sonic, there was Alex. Punches, the use of S/P/R as a random special move, hell, if Ice Climbers, so does Alex.

Ryo Hazuki (Shenmue): He fights, he's newish, he's Sega owned, therefore he's in.

Phantasy Star: To match Fire Emblem. Lots of different versions, but let's stick to the original trio, Alis, Odin and Noah. That's 11...

Billy Hatcher: He's making the transition to Sonic Racers, so this makes sence too. Plus, Hatcher Eggs can be the alterative weapon to pokeballs.

Virtual Fighter: This would be tricky, if it wasn't for the Kids version. Thus, you can use their basic ideas, if you want cartoony. Or they can go the Samus route. Let's say Akira (after all, he's the main character) and Dural. 14.

Virtual On: If fricking Optumus Prime works, so do these guys. You could pick any number of them, but let's stick to 2, and the rest can be weapons or some such. As for which 2...Not my job. Pick your favourite 2. 16.

Super Monkey Ball: Aiai and Meemee, main and the female. 18.

Comix Zone: Sketch Turner, bitches! 19.

Frogger: Not sure how it would work, but this is the real G&M fight. 20.

Kid Chameleon: I assume this is Sega owned. Certainly makes sense as a fighter. 21.

Streets Of Rage: Eh, held out long enough. Axel, Blaze, Max. 24.

And, lucky last...

Wonder Boy: Ecco wouldn't work and I just can't see Segata Sanshiro fitting in. So, go with the guy before Alex.

Of course, if the console can hold more, make more. NiGHTS, more from Sonic/Virtual On/Streets/Monkey Ball/Virtual Fighter, a Crazy Taxi character, Intial D, Jet Set Radio, Shinobi, Space Channel 5 if the law suit is settled, Panzer Dragoon, a Columns level (or better still, a Columns vs Tetris level!), Shining Force...I've just scratched the surface.

But dammit, Sonic vs. Mario. For real! Damm it would be cool...
And we're rolling... - 01.16.2006

I'm not a natural blogger. I tried, once, but gave it up because my life is boring. Not in the postive, "insight into real life" type boring, just boring boring. And all my creative energy is currently in other directions.

So, I'm not sure what's going to go here. Probably anything I wish to share about my Wrestling training/matches, which I'll start having this year. Any comments about the business I have. Fantasy booking. Random stuff I wish to share. Stuff like that.

But probably not on a regular basis. But we'll see.
