What are your gaming plan for this weekend?

Owner

I keep saying this but I really need to get into the rules for the Better Bots PnP for #Root. If I do this and get comfortable with running the AI's, I think it's only a matter of time until I can do a co-op play with my wife! Also, my mom has been wanting to try out #Clans of Caledonia so a 3p game may be in the works including my wife.

Also, I've been playing WAY too much of the #Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization app. I've also recently downloaded the following free apps for games I likely won't be getting as a physical copy in the next 1-2 years at the minimum:

  • #Hive - I loved playing tons of chess as a kid. I always took it as one of my classes for summer school during elementary years. I don't buy these zero-luck abstract games though because it's not my wife's favorite. I've put in several plays so far and I'm likely to play more this weekend. Simple but it's a great one.
  • #Evolution - I guess I'll finally be able to try this one out! I may get a physical copy of this in the future, but I just have way too many other games at the top of my wishlist.
  • #Paperback (I uninstalled this one from my phone and got a refund because it mentioned something about it being an old version and that I may experience issues. I'll probably try it out on steam instead). It interested got me interested when I saw the description "word-building deck-builder".

Now it's your turn! What will you be playing this weekend?

So @philryuh, did you get #root to the table? 

Supporter9 months ago

Never mind, I see now that you didn't have it on Monday's post.

My brother-in-law really wants to play #The Reckoners again (we played two weeks ago), so hopefully we'll get that in tomorrow night. I'm also really antsy for a longer game with good narrative, like Nemesis (which I do not own). Hopefully we'll be able to play #Western Legends or #Escape Plan.

Owner9 months ago

Did The Reckoners end up happening? I wonder when Nemesis will be available again lol

9 months ago

Unfortunately, no. The others just wanted to play games of a lighter, faster fare, so we'll try again this week.

Supporter9 months ago

I don't Phil?  Root on TTS tomorrow night?

Actually even if you can't play I'll probably try to get in a game of Root on TTS.  I may try out the Solo Deck App of Raiders as well.

Owner9 months ago

Hmmm I'm not sure yet, it's likely I'll have a family thing going on tomorrow night with my parents. But I'm definitely down for a session when it works out though

Supporter9 months ago

Gotya.  Well hopefully sometime soon(ish).  Maybe we can try next weekend.

Owner9 months ago

What did you end up going with? We had some family worship time and then my wife and I finally played #Welcome to... together. First time since we got our own copy of the game about a year ago lol. As for TTS or Tabletopia, next weekend should work.

Supporter9 months ago

Nice.  Yeah I didn't do anything this weekend but I think I'm going to get Root in tonight, and I have a Digital Game Night set up with my buddies here for some Viticulture Thursday.

I am gonna try and scrounge together some online games through Board Game Arena, I got a premium account going so I have lots of game options! Maybe #Clans of Caledonia, may some #Keyflower or #Race for the Galaxy. We will see!

Supporter9 months ago

👍Sounds great. 

Supporter9 months ago

Would you be interested in Clans on Tabletopia at some point?

9 months ago

I would definitely be interested! I will need to learn the game better but I would love to get something in. 

Supporter9 months ago

What time zone do you live in?  I find that sometimes makes playing hard since I usually can't get on till around 9:00/9:30 in Denver.

9 months ago

I live in the Pacific time zone so that should be fine!

Supporter9 months ago

Perfect.  Right now because I have many little kids it's hard to get to the computer before 9:30 MST.  Maybe we can try to set up a Clans with Phil in the next coupe of weeks.

Owner9 months ago

I'm down!

9 months ago

Count me in!! That sounds like a good time. 

Supporter9 months ago

I'm hoping to play a 3 spirit game of #Spirit Island tomorrow. On Sunday I might get #Star Trek: Frontiers

Owner9 months ago

Do you think you'd consider getting additional Spirit expansions at some point?

Supporter9 months ago

Of course I'd consider it. But I'd have to be in the right mood.... And have them be the right price. 

Supporter9 months ago

Why don’t I like Spirit Island?

Supporter9 months ago

When I've looked into it, it hasn't grabbed my attention at all.  Again (I just mentioned this in another comment), I think a large part of that is due to the fact that I'm not the biggest fan of Coop.

Supporter9 months ago

I'm also not a big coop fan.... But #Spirit Island has been great for me. 

Owner9 months ago

I'm not too into the Pandemic-esque co-ops either. They're fine, and I'll have decent amount of fun with them, but it's always #2 on my "want to play" list, or less. I'm way more excited about co-op games that give you story elements/adventure or ones where you can team up to battle against a common enemy (like Root)

Supporter9 months ago

I don't know man.... I wish you would give multiple spirits a try. It really turns the game up a couple of notches. 

Supporter9 months ago

I have! I just don’t click with the game. It disturbs me though, because all my research and all other indicators seem to point to me really liking the game. 

Supporter9 months ago

Well, then, it sounds like you need to put it on your trade pile......Sorry about your experience.

Supporter9 months ago

I feel like a failure getting rid of the game though. Like I failed it.
