I'm excited.

My brother in law and how wife are arriving tomorrow to visit us. I have a number of games waiting for rides down and they *think* they have room for it all. We will see how much they have room for.... But the games I have waiting, and am sorta expecting tomorrow are.. 

Spirit Island

Porta Nigra

7 Ronin

Deep Space D6

And, Unlock! The Island of Dr. Goorse. 


I haven't ever played any of these but I an looking forward to trying them.

Which are you the most excited for? Glad you get to have a great time of games!

Supporter10 months ago

Definitely spirit island. 

I'm just hoping that when they actually get packed that they have room for it all.lots of times people say they have plenty of room, but miscalculate.

For sure. So they are brining it down from Kansas for you right?

Supporter10 months ago

That's the plan

Dang that’s a trek. I hope the games survive the journey down and that all that what you hope is in there is there! Haha 

Supporter10 months ago

🤞I know they are in the air. I never heard of they had room for it all or not. I guess I'll find out tonight or tomorrow.

Haha it’ll be like Christmas for you! 

Supporter10 months ago

Hopefully. I have to drop them off at our house and leave right away to go to a meeting 1.5 hrs away. So I don't expect to see much, if anything, tonight.

So it’ll be more like Christmas when you open presents and then have to rush to family gathering haha

Supporter10 months ago

Maybe. Again, I'm have to see how many they had room for. So, I don't even know for sure what all I'm getting. So, it is kinda like Christmas in that way too.

Haha definitely. I hope you enjoy it!

Quite a haul to receive all at once!

Supporter10 months ago

Yes. I'm hoping they have room for it all. Suitcases always fill up too fast... If they don't have room for it all I'll get it when I go up in March.

I'd be curious how you end up enjoying 7 Ronin.  I love Asian theme.

Supporter10 months ago

It was a black Friday sale. It looks like a fun two player game. 

Supporter10 months ago

I know you love your two player games.  Is it strictly a two player game?  Or does it just scale well at two players?

Supporter10 months ago

It is basically 7 Samurai without actually trampling on any ip. One player controls the 7 ronin, and the other control 50, I think, bandits. There is some hidden movement and that sort of stuff.

Supporter10 months ago

Two player only 

Supporter10 months ago

Nice!! Happy for you. Are they gamers as well?

I haven't played but I feel like you'll really enjoy Spirit Island.

Supporter10 months ago

They are not gamers. He is willing to play hobby games in the light to medium weight range sometimes. But, probably we won't play as much as I would wish.

Spirit Island may be a bit much then, definitely on the heavier end!

Supporter10 months ago

I think so, though he plays and loves scythe....

Scythe has some good weight to it, but it is a little different and the asymmetry definitely makes it much more complex! 

Supporter10 months ago

That is me feeling

I just picked up Porta Nigra a few weeks ago for just $6 and have not played it yet, either.
Let me know what you think - it looks great!

Supporter10 months ago

We will see what all they have room for 

Supporter10 months ago

Very excited for you Chris! This should be a great time.

I've only played Porta Nigra from that group, but it's a lot of fun. I'm a big Kramer/Kiesling fan and thought the use of preprogrammed cards for action selection was great. It really reduced the AP that some people experience with their other games.

Supporter10 months ago

The reviews I read were slightly lukewarm. But, I spent a total of $11.99 shipped to get it. I thought it was worth the gamble and I thought it looked pleasant at worse.

I also got it for dirt cheap and think it's certainly worth a few plays. It's not their best work (Tikal is in my top 5) but it's still enjoyable and has a nice table presence.
