Yeah it's awesome and for sure the trade action is important to smooth things out.  The good news is that when you have all played a bit you can play a 6 player game in 3 1/2 hours or so.

Played Mini Golf Designer

Played with 2 players.

We had three players. The set up, explanation, and learning curve (with a rules error) still took about 3 hours since we still watched everyone take their bottom action. We all had so much fun eventhough it was a lopsided win (not me)- 6 stars to 2 and 3 stars.  I'm starting to see how that trade action can really help at the beginning where I've ignored that in my solo games. Such a good game!

How many players did you end up with for Scythe?  I was very impressed with how fast and smoothie my 6 player game went. 

I think "National Drive-Through Day" could be an interesting car game instead of just a fast food thing. Just not sure what that would be.

Excellent list. I have several and realize I love this type of game. I need to try more.

Of the many games I like for many different reasons, if I could only be with one, I'd choose #The Quacks of Quedlinburg (with the #The Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Herb Witches expansion which I've boxed together)- I can play it with everyone, it's always different, and it's a lot of fun.

I'm still waiting to get Lost Ruins of Arnak to the table...

  • finished our first game of #Marvel Champions: The Card Game; first defeat of Rhino took 3 hours the previous week; second defeat of Rhino took only 90 minutes. My wife defeated him so that slightly increases the chance she'll play it again.  Definately much harder for my family to grasp what is going on than other deck builders we've played.
  • #Boss Monster interesting and fun game.  Hope to play it again.
  • #Scythe first time with other players. Lost soundly, but still had a blast! Can't wait to play it again.
  • #Under Falling Skies two games, one on difficulty level 1 and the other on difficulty level 2 with Roswell city; won both

They are adding hidden thematic backer ideas to the art, get over to the campaign comments and offer up your ideas!

Hahaha, I see what you did there on #Forbidden Desert. I certainly approve.

Gotta say as I read through this first diary I'm getting sucked in.  I love the fact that you can make maps that fit your play style.  Looks like you can be really competative and really mean (what I like), or less aggresive which is good for others.

Oh I gotya, I suppose that makes sense.  I'm in the opposite camp, only because, well I never watch movies.  This will be the exception.

That makes sense.  So it sounds as if from both an art and gameplay perspective I wouldn't enjoy this one like I would the regular version.

Captain America (Protection) vs Ultron; Expert; Under Attack

That's right! I married someone from NOLA and have done a lot of work in that area. 

Great options, I have never played any of these (except Snakes and Ladders as a kid). Big respect for pulling out these abstract tiles.

Black Widow (Justice) vs Klaw; Expert; Masters of Evil

Ok, I like that angle for the dog house👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. Yea, I am surprised no one has thought of a gorgeous Grandma board game for some reason. Someone needs to get that on Kickstarter ASAP.

Hahaha, I am with you. I would probably end up with #Cosmic Encounter - Lots of take that, negotiations and interupts.

Yea, no thanks. How many Pandemic games are there? Have they not squeezed all the juice out of that fruit yet??

Yes! I love the style of Evil Corp and I love how it straddles party game and strategy game so well!!

If my history tells me anything, I will probably marry #Monopoly. Only like 2% of people who meet her like her, she is a frustrating waste of time and after a long run everything ends in anger and things getting thrown.

Played Terraforming Mars

Played at San Antonio, Texas with 2 players.

Another close but no cigar evening for your truly in Terraforming Mars. Mari had a corporation that allowed her to just keep pushing up the TR track and that ended up being the majority of the difference in the final score. It also didn't hurt her to be able to push her plant production up significantly by the end of the game and be able to plant far more plants than I did. She REALLY knows how to strategize this game. So much so that I always feel lucky on the rare times I am able to beat her.
