#Crokinole several times over the weekend. Very fun game, simple, but very fun.
#Raiders of Scythia once with my mom on Saturday. She is not what I would call a 'gamer' and would default to #Yahtzee or #Monopoly if given the choice, but, after playing, asked when we could play again. I really liked the first playthrough and while I think Becky will repeatedly kick my tail at this game I did enjoy it and look forward to the next one.
#PARKS on Sunday and with #PARKS: Nightfall Expansion was a close game 31-30 with me pulling out a win due to taking an extra picture and obtaining 1 extra year card.

Wow, teaching a non gamer to play #Raiders of Scythia? Color me impressed!

Out of curiousity what quality of board do you use when you play #Crokinole? The boards can be relatively cheap to super pricey. I was first introduced to the game on a very pricy board. I introduced the game to my side of the family using the backside of an old Carrom board that had been sitting in their basement for years. Had a lot of fun both times. I've been considering picking up a board ever since but I'm undecided if I should invest in the higher quality board.
I have a lower quality board from Kickstarter. I have two kids though and didn't want a high quality board. If I was setting up a game room and had regular plays or ran tournaments I'd go higher quality. I really need to get these kids to college before I get too shee-shee-foo-foo
Is it one of the Mayday kickstarter boards? I feel like that might be a nice mid-point between the cheap $40 ones and the $250+ tournament grade boards.
That's the one!!

Played some #Wingspan with my friend. I also got to try #Pandemic for the first time! Unfortunately, my friend who taught us found out the next day that she forgot something in the rules so we actually ended up playing it wrong. I'm excited to try again! We wrapped up our old fanmade campaign. This last scenario was the most well-balanced of them all. We didn't get the best ending but it is what it is. (:We started a new fanmade campaign for #Arkham Horror: The Card Game. This one starts with us all as amnesiacs on an old creepy culty(?) spaceship. And so far, I've been enjoying it! We are playing again tomorrow and am excited for it as well.

Nice chill week
1) #Raiders of the North Sea with the #Raiders of the North Sea: Fields of Fame expansion
2) Recently acquired #King of Tokyo
3) Got to play more #Paladins of the West Kingdom =)
4) First time playing #Everdell with 2 players and pleasent surprise. It's very good and quick. Will repeat for sure.
5) Wrapped up with some #Hive Pocket (which I thought would be a easy chill game... damn thing is like high level chess!)
Hope you all had a good time this week!
Glad to see you enjoyed Everdell! That's one of my favorites. Hive is also great, and yeah, very chess-like!
Love Everdell! Want to buy more expansions now
We have them all! I wouldn't say any of them are "must have" expansions, but they're all fun, and you can mix and match. We often still play base game only, if that tells you anything. Just depends on what we're feeling like that evening.

Only thing I got played was several games of Yellow 11. It is a trick taking game that some of my friends down here like. I came in second in each game.

Didn't get to do too much. There were a lot of opening present marathons with the kiddos over zoom with the extended family. I did finally get to try out #Planet and also my sisters and brothers-in-law got another month of #Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 in. I play a support role in that game in that I help watch their kids and clean up after dinner so they can play haha.

Played more than I thought I did this week.
Finished up a game of #Yokohama against @nealkfrank and @TK2187 on BGA. I think it was pretty clear who among us had played before lol. Neal and myself lost pretty badly...Speaking of those two, we also finished a game of #Teotihuacan: City of Gods on BGA. @TK2187 beat us there too.
Also got #That's Pretty Clever from my meetup groups Secret Santa so of course I had to give it a shot. I like the comboing of actions aspect quite a bit and really hope to introduce this to a few more people.
Finally got around to trying #Nemo's War (Second Edition). Sarah said it just looked like I was talking to myself the whole time lol. Didn't help me any as I lost pretty badly.
Played #The Quacks of Quedlinburg against Sarah..kinda..she had her nails painted so I had to pull chits from her bag as well. We both liked it, though I think she would have preferred to play for herself. Looking forward to giving this another go.
Christmas Day was spent with Sarah's family. We played #Cards Against Humanity, #Team Play, #Poetry For Neanderthals, and #Marvel United. Mostly just silly fun, obviously a great time spent with family.
Finished off the week playing #Orléans with my recently acquired #Orléans: Trade & Intrigue expansion. We used the nicer Beneficial Deeds board and it opened up the game a lot between that and the new order cards. Sarah was, in my opinion, a little too worried about what I was doing. I think she could have easily beat me had she just stayed on her own path as I was mainly just trying out new stuff. Really, really like this expansion.

Also very appropriate that you were talking to yourself while playing Nemos War...it's like your LARPing The Captain himself!!
It was more like "okay so if I do that...then I can...oh wait no because I want to do this..." LOL
Lol nothing wrong with a little talking to yourself! The head space sounds right up my alley!!
Hahaha I enjoyed Yokohama but the strategy wasn't clear until way to late for me! I also still am bad at Teo lol.
Yeah I feel the same with Yokohama. And yes...you're still bad at Teo LOL
I had a good strategy last game but didn't manage my coco well so I am working on that this game!
Seems to be working out for you for sure!
There is still plenty of time to make some mistakes 😂
I'm honestly shocked how far along these temple tracks I'm getting this game. No idea how it will pan out in the end but I've never been this far up them at once!
I noticed that!! We are have only had one eclipse and you are already on the top of one!
Sorry! We should play again! #Yokohama really is a great game, you'll just have to trust me haha.
No need to apologize! I like the game a lot and would definitely play it again. I only changed games just to switch it up
