Little slow this week... Played a game of #Adventure Land with the wife and my youngest on Tuesday. Fun game - wish the expansion was available! Then #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) with the boys last night. I won on the second failed dominance check... Can't let someone hog those purple cards! :)

Good night with the Allegany Boardgaming Society! #Paris Connection just came out on Board Game Arena, so I learned that in preparation and we played a couple of games. I love cube rails! Then our usual round of #Codenames before another new to BGA game - #No Thanks!. We love these mean little fillers. :) Then we rounded off the night, as we often do, with a couple games of #Flaming Pyramids.

For the second weekend in a row, I actually played some #Frostgrave: Second Edition! I've been reading and building and painting so long that this feels like a real accomplishment! :D

We played the "Living Museum" scenario, and my son definitely came out on top. The statues guarding the treasure made the middle of the board a slaughterhouse, so he used Telekinesis to pull treasures out of there. My archers whiffed on some big rolls, and my spellcasters didn't accomplish much either. The boy came away with four treasures to my one.

Can't wait to play some more! Next order of business is a playmat, so that our dude aren't running across our kitchen table. :)

Have you played any cube rails games? I find they give me a lot of what I like in an 18xx game, but with no tile set frustration and in much less time. My family would never sit down to play an 18xx - but they will play #Chicago Express.

Your review of #Stephenson's Rocket makes me think I need to try that one, too. Trains AND Knizia! :)

They are a bit tricky to find... but I do enjoy the crayon rail series. Some examples include #Empire Builder and #Iron Dragon.

Now, I am going into the realm of games I haven't played but, have heard good things about. The first option I will mention is a bit off the wall, it is #Empyreal: Spells & Steam. This is supposedly a lot of fun. And, it looks like it isn't too heavy.

#Irish Gauge has been mentioned. Unfortunately it, like most cube rails games, does need a minimum of three to play. There are however a few cube rail games that you can play with two, these games include #Chicago Express and #Across the United States.

I have not really, though I did play a fair amount of #Empire Builder back in the day. 

You might check into some of the cube rail games like #Irish Gauge or something like that if you are interested in lighter train games. 

Or, you could try 18 Lilliput if you are interested in dipping your toes into the 18xx market.
