What are your gaming plans for this weekend?

Owner

Happy Friday! I'm just catching up on the forum action after spending time with my wife for her birthday.

So what are your plans for this weekend? Any gaming you foresee? I'm going to take home #Paladins of the West Kingdom from our office so that I can give it a whirl (hopefully) after learning the rules. And probably not on the weekend, but Trent and I'll be livestreaming a playthrough of #The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game next week!

Happy birthday to your wife !

I was supposed to play #Res Arcana tonight but due to rough days for both my fiance and I, we're holding off until tomorrow. Hoping I can get her to play something else too..I'm thinking #The Castles of Burgundy.

If not, I can always play more #The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine on BGA!

Thank you! Will let her know :)

Hope the weekend gives both of you some much needed breathing room. I realllly need to try out #The Castles of Burgundy some day. Getting in a play of #Catan felt like a milestone achieve a while back and I'll feel the same way once I check off that and #Agricola (Revised Edition) off my list haha

I'd like to try #The Castles of Burgundy before #The Castles of Tuscany arrives. Would be good to compare the two.

It's a great game that I'd highly recommend. When's Tuscany arrive?

I should clarify, when I say arrive - I mean in the stores! There's no release date yet, but I hear it's shorter and lighter than Burgundy.

Ohhh I didn't realize. I'll have to check it out

First game of #Pipeline kicked the weekend off, which going broke in that game is kind of a panic when you don't have any oil in your tanks and you don't know what you're doing yet, but that spatial puzzle driving an economic game was pretty fun.  Hopefully another game of that, #Lisboa, and maybe a smaller game like #Targi would be a great weekend, we'll see what happens.

has said great things about #Pipeline, although it sounds like it's likely I'll get a brain cramp after my first play xD

Same here, hah. Many pauses staring at the pipes.  Surprisingly, it was a little easier to play than I expected, as long as you don't get caught broke without oil in the tanks. I imagine it's hard to play well, for sure, but more approachable on a first play than I expected.

I might get to break out #Fort.  Tough to say.

Hope it happens! How many players if it happens? I've only tried it with 2p so far and I feel like it would be more fun at higher player counts

That's a little disappointing to hear as I pre-ordered it strictly for 2p! It should be arriving any day now. Would you not recommend it at all at 2p?

I'll try 4 if it happens. Probably take it calling with us and bring it out when we need something to do.

Played it on TTS the other day at 2 and I agree. With more people to follow and recruit from, I think the game would feel a bit more lively, but we'll see whenever I get to play with more than 2. We were actually supposed to be 3 when we did play but one guy had to work late haha.

We're supposed to bring a game to a brunch we're having with another couple tomorrow - my wife suggested #Res Arcana, but we'll see.

#Paladins of the West Kingdom is great! Solid rulebook. I watched a how to play beforehand, but I found the rulebook more helpful, TBH.

Owner8 months ago

Nice! Has that other couple played any games with you two before?

I'm glad to hear that. I had a great experience with the rulebook for #Architects of the West Kingdom so I hoped Paladins would also deliver on that front.

I've played with the guy a few times, and he's pretty much up for whatever. I think I've only played #Sushi Go Party! with his wife, but I'm fairly certain that she likes games, because they have a couple of neat games on their shelf too (though I don't think they're addicted like I am lol).

I'm hoping to get a game of #Brass: Birmingham in with my wife. We'll see if it comes through!

Gotta get that bacon. I'm strongly considering jumping on Hollow Knight right now because of you haha

Hollow Knight is good fun! If you like that kind of game :) Looking forward to silksong

Man I am so pumped for Silksong! Although I wish I wasn't aware of its existence already, as it's going to be a long wait...

Very bold my friend, very bold.

Played a solo game of #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) today and have a game of #Too Many Bones scheduled with and here in a little bit! Very excited!

Had a ton of fun playing TMB again! I can't believe how close of a game it was by the end but glad we still got the win.

Still amazed we pulled it off!

I am slowly playing a game of keyflower on board game arena and will hopefully get in a game of #Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 with my partner.

Hope your wife had a lovely b'day!
