I think I do really enjoy sci-fi, not necessarily based on an existing IP just games that allow for the weird and the wacky. Histroically based games, especially when they are more specific like #Gùgōng or #878: Vikings - Invasions of England or #13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis where someone has taken a very specific event or time period and created a game to recreate it.

Got a good game night in last Thursday.  We played:

Gugong was interesting for sure.  I think I will need to play it again to form a solid opinion.  It felt a bit like Teotihuacan: City of Gods in that you can move various tracks up directly and indirectly.  The card mechanism is Gugong is very different from Teotihuacan's worker movement.  I think I prefer Teotihuacan but as I said, I need to play Gugong again to get a better feel for it.

Citadels was fun as always.  Pretty short game and a good one after a longer game.

Shifty Eyed Spies was a new one for me.  We had some laughs playing it so thumbs up for that.
