I finally got to play, and enjoyed, a game of #Town Builder: Coevorden

6 months ago

Got in games of #Jixia Academy and #13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis with my partner: Jixia academy is a new one for us, the aim is to get the majority of cards and as such 'support' of the various characters. It has a wonderful mechanic of whereby you pick a group of cards to be played but you opponent gets to decide who gets what making it feel very tricky to know what to play as you are both trying to second guess each other.

13 days is still one of my all time favourite 2P games, never fails to be interesting and tactical with some really fun decisions.

Probably the wrong thread, but I am really looking forward to trying out a few new games this weekend. Its going to be a long cabin weekend with some questionable weather, and so I will be playing a few new lighter/party-style games for the first time. The list includes #Wavelength, #The Resistance, as well as some old favorites in #Monikers, #Sushi Go Party!, and #The Mind

I love weekends in a cabin with nothing better to do at night than playing games!! 

I also have Wavelength on the schedule this weekend :)

Played #Space Base for the first time and lost to my wife.

Also got to play my favorite racing game #The Quest for El Dorado

Played another 6p game of #Warpgate. probably my favorite acquisition of the year thus far. The game is a hit with my group. I also played a few rounds of the chameleon, just one, and #Colorful. the latter three are great "post big game" games.

#Camel Up (second edition) - 4p game with the family! I love this game because it mostly tests your instincts. I like how you can mostly let loose and enjoy the game and the social dynamics.

#Clans of Caledonia - 2p with my wife. Every time we play, I'm remined why it's one of my favorite games. I played as Clan Cunningham that specializes in milk production.

Just got that solo play of #Gaia Project in but it for sure inspired me to get more plays of this game in, both at solo and multiplayer!

Great game.  One of my favourites!

What is your favorite faction?

Premium User6 months ago

Hmmm.  I don't know if I have played it enough to have a favourite faction honestly.  How about you?

I have really enjoyed my plays with Itars (Revised Wookies) and the Ivits (Space bugs).

Played #Rurik: Dawn of Kiev with my wife again. She smoked  me 21-13. For reference, the last time we tied 17-17 with her taking the tie breaker.

I've also been playing #Call to Adventure: The Stormlight Archive solo. It's a lot of fun! Especially since I'm so deep down the cosmere rabbit hole that I practically live on the stuff.

Rurik looks so great. I'm slightly surprised you seem to enjoy it this much two player. Have you tried it solo? 

6 months ago

It's really quite balanced at all player counts. Having more players does add a bit more of a dynamic to the gameplay, but itt's still very good at two. And yes, I have played solo. Solo is also very smooth and well done. It's definitely a solid solo choice.

And it is so pretty.

Played a round of #Architects of the West Kingdom and we were going to play another and my daughter (11) wanted to play so we played a 3 player round after which Taryn said she really enjoyed playing (YAY!)

I recevied #The Isle of Cats in the mail on Saturday and was thinking I stow it away till August when everyone was bored out of their mind and anxious to try anything new.  My daughter saw the box and wanted to play so on Sunday morning we learned how to play #The Isle of Cats together and afterward Taryn said, "I think this is my favorite game now."

Whoa

So today we will be playing again after I get off work.  There are hardly any games all four of use will play.  Love Letter, Fireball Island, and Authors are the only ones that get played regularly.  

GOt in a game of Martian Dice on Saturday too :)

#Architects of the West Kingdom is such a good game, I am glad your family enjoys it too! Does your daughter often join in on games or was this unusual?

Premium User6 months ago

This is pretty recent where she will see us playing and ask to play the next game. She is definitely attracted to upgraded parts and pieces. I just ordered topshelfgamer upgrade for Architects as I figure she will enjoy those even more. So far she's played #The Isle of Cats, #Everdell, and #Wingspan

Nice! It's wonderful you get to play with her :) Which has been her favourite so far?

Premium User6 months ago

Definitely Isle of Cats this far 🙂

Nice, a little gamer in the making

This is good to see...I've got #The Isle of Cats arriving in the mail this week!

I know tetris-style tile laying is at the forefront with Isle of Cats, but what is the main mechanic there? Card drafting?

Premium User6 months ago

You draft a hand of 7 cards (2 at a time) at the beginning of every round (5) and so there's a good bit of hand management to go with managing your fish. You can always play at least 1 cat with your permanent basket each turn. The Tetrising of your cats is the MOST important thing as I lost due to doing this poorly. Hand/Card management is probably the next most important piece.

Do you score points based on the types of cats out there or the cards? Or covering up specific spots on your board?

Premium User6 months ago

All three. Cat "families" probably the most. 3 cats to 10 cats in a family (or. Touching) score the most. There are blue point cards that if you play either give everyone points for something or give just you points for something. Any empty "room" or uncovered rat spaces take away points at the end. Cat families give the most points but the cards can be significant. Leaving empty spaces on your boat probably takes the most points away.

Premium User6 months ago

I forgot to add the point scoring is quite salad like.  Each family of cats, rare treasuers, private lessons, public lessons, rats, and unfilled spaces all add to points

Sounds interesting! I would be interested in giving this game a shot, not sure I would have the opportunity though!

  • #Point Salad @ 4p
  • #Sushi Go Party! @ 4p
  • #Terraforming Mars @ 3p - this was my first time playing this and I really enjoyed it! I actually won, but I think that's because I was using a beginner corporation and the other players were not. It was cool to see the sheer number of different cards and the potential combos you can make. I'm definitely not impressed with the components. The art is weird and the cards and player boards feel so cheap. But outside of that it was really cool and I look forward to when I can play again.
