Secret Santa (not really)

Supporter

Hey everyone! I thought it would be fun to do a little exercise where we pick a fellow Forum user and pick out a game we would give them for the holidays, based simply on what we know about each other from interacting here on BGA. Since it’s hypothetical price is no concern! If you want to reply multiple times for different users feel free!

I'd get Evolution: Climate for everyone here, because I think everyone should try it, haha!

Supporter11 months ago

I've been curious about Evolution ever since interviewing the artist (Catherine Hamilton). Really do need to give it a try some day so it'd be great to get this haha

The app is pretty good, so you can try it out inexpensively. For me, though, you can't beat the interaction you get with other people at the table. Plus I find it harder to actually focus on a strategy playing in an app vs. IRL, but maybe that's just me. 

Not to mention that the app doesn't include the excellent Climate expansion.

I've only played evolution on the app. It seems like it is a solid game for the price. Is climate the best for of it?

Climate adds some really great options for strategy, and also adds a little more variety into the game. You can try to push the climate one direction or the other to force certain species to lose population, and there are also climate events that trigger and sometimes cause drastic effects. It's very thematic.

That sounds cool.

Yeah I'm not sure why they don't include the Climate expansion in the app. Maybe they just want to give people a taste so they buy the physical version?

u/trentellinsen needs the Quacks expansion. Not wants; NEEDS.

I already have a plan to laminate 8-10 sheets at work tomorrow so they are available over the weekend! Definitely worked out nicely!

Supporter10 months ago

Nice! Will you be playing it two players with your wife or will it be with more people? Hope you have a great time :)

Supporter11 months ago

Yes, Trent does need a new copy after his stunt. 

Supporter11 months ago

He actually got a new copy just for the marathon (to have all 100 sheets). He needs another one for marathon #2 lol. Actually, I hope the designer of Welcome To followed up in his message to Trent and sent him a nice gift :)

Supporter11 months ago

So the designer got ahold of Trent after his stunt? I didn't know that. That is cool.

You are so kind Phil!!

I'm trying to remember who wants to try and who wants to buy Root, but I think Root needs to be in every collection.  So Root for all?

Supporter11 months ago

Me please. I don't have my own copy :)
