Small but mighty week!

  • #Deep Sea Adventure @ 4 players: I always drown in this one...but it is growing on me!
  • #Welcome to... @ 5-players: Always a nice little warm up! Did well but could not beat
  • #Concordia @ 5-players: This game is shooting up my favorite games list. It really is an interesting decision space! Pulled out the win by one point because of the Concordia card :) 

All of the following is since Oct 1st 2020.  Reading and boardgames are my two favorite hobbies and when I get on the reading kick, I can go through a bunch of books.  I've read nearly 60 books so far this year.  Also, apologies for the length of this post.

  1. I'm about 750 pages into A Call to Arms: Mobilizing America for World War II.  I have about 100 pages to go and its been fasinating to look back into the struggles and obstacles that needed overcome in order to get the United States prepared for WW2 and its eventually victory.
  2. Read Washington's Crossing by David Hackett Fisher - which is about Washington's crossing of the Delware river and the actions in late Dec - Jan of 1776/77.    The crew at Little Wars TV did a table top war game play through of some of these combats and those were also interesting. 
  3. I read Napoleon and Wellington: The Battle of WAterloo, and the Great Commanders who Fought It by Andrew Roberts - which is exactly like it sounds like.  Very interesting history and career arcs between the two generals despite the fact that this is the only battle in which they went head to head. 
  4. I read George Washington's Secret Spy War: The Making of America's First Spymaster by John Nagy which is an interesting look into Washington's spy ring and the troubles/double crossing that it under went. 

On the lighter side I've also read:

  1. Crisis Moon by Michael McGruther which is a story about "The United States discovers bootprints on the far side of the Moon and hire a private aerospace firm to investigate".  Turns out the Chinese have built a secert labatory on the far side of the moon to harvest a rare compond that will completely change the energy situation on Earth. 
  2. Book 2 in the Wings of Steele - Flight of Freedom by Jeffrey Burger - A great sci-fi adventure about a couple of US Marine pilots and a couple of avitors who end up captured by an alien cruise ship in the Burmuda triangle (of course), volunteer as pilots for the United Nations space equilivant.  Our hero ends up as Captain of a Battle Cruiser and the trials that come fighting space pirates.  Highly recommend.
  3. The War Revealed by Karl Gallagher - A group of medevial historic re-enactors get transported to a magical kingdom with Orcs, wizards, dragons, etc. 
  4. Staking a Claim by Travis Corcorn - A short story in the Aristillus universe.  I was honestly hoping for more (like the 3rd book in the series) but instead its more of a short (44 pg) story.  A good story in itself. 

 

The Wings of Steele series would make a great campaign style board game.  I'd be interested in a game set in "The War Revealed" universe as well.  The Aristillus universe would be a great setting for a COIN style game. 

I have no interest or ability in coming up with the necessary mechanics on how any of those ideas would work in practice but there you go.

Daily Deals for Nov. 20:

#Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is $34.97 as the Game Nerdz Deal of the Day, save $30.03 (new low on BGA). 

#Forbidden Sky: Height of Danger is $19.99 as the Cardhaus Daily Deal, save 50%.

#Fallout Shelter: The Board Game is $27 as the Miniature Market Daily Deal, save 32%.

 

Nope. I have a pretty small collection compared to you spychos, so less options means all games are played more or something like that.

Actually, I have yet to play #Choose Your Own Adventure: House of Danger, but I doubt that's thought of as a classic games

hm, I don't think I own a single grail game. When I buy a game, it has great reviews, isn't really expensive and on a good sale. The most "grail" game I own is #Choose Your Own Adventure: House of Danger but I don't like that game that much
