#Dawn of the Zeds 3rd Edition, will you be comparing it to other "states of siege" type games?
I'll reference them, but i dont have much experience with them asides from reading the rulebooks and looking at them online.
Playing #Lords of Hellas tonight
I've seen it several times right at or below $60 and I've been tempted to pick it up. But I haven't so far.
Its not the most elegant of games, but it has really neat ideas in it and emergent powers which i love. Caters to different play styles too, which is nice
I really like the conceit of the game as well.

I finally started #The 7th Continent and am having a blast in solo mode!

What are your first impressions of the game?
I only have a few hours in so far. I started exploring everything and died right away, haha! So I shifted my strategy and now I'm trying to focus on survival. It can be tough. Harder than I thought but not frustratingly so. I think to get a lot out of the game you have to be the kind of person who enjoys the journey, as much as (or more than) the destination. I love the atmospheric music from the app, too. I can get swept away in the theme. Have you tried playing it?
No I haven't played it yet. It peaks my interest now and then mind you. It's a bit pricey and I'm not sure if I'd enjoy it enough to pick it up.

Would you say this is fairly approachable?
I am looking for a coop/story driven game to play with my wife!
Definitely. I was feeling a little paralyzed / intimidated by the rulebook so I just dove in and stumbled through a few turns. Eventually it all clicked. I liked the old choose-your-own-adventure books and point-and-click video games (Maniac Mansion style) so this really satisfies that itch.
Have you played it yet? Any interest?
I have not played it! I do have interest though, I am going to watch a couple videos on it so I can learn a little more!
Watch It Played did a good overview and helped me understand the mechanics better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roqzI03WDGILet us know how you like it if/when you give it a try!
I am planning on watching that and there is a GameNight playthrough as well!

just started #Gloomhaven with my two eldest sons.#Sprawlopolis arrives today with all expansions.
I also just got the new #Cartographers: Ambush Card Promo Pack to #Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale. which has been my go-to game for the quarantine. I've played it 30+ times in as many days.
Gloomhaven is amazing! I am sure you'll enjoy that.
I've only played Cartographer's once on Tabletopia but it looks like a lot of fun. Glad to hear it holds up over many plays.
Yes!! Sprawlopolis is so good!! I have not come close to winning ever but I have fun when I play!

Two games of #Tsuro of the Seas with my wife and four-year-old (he did great!) and #Monopoly Junior as well.
Tsuro is a great family game! I've also found the younger ones do quite well and the dragon luck factor helps even things out overall.
Yes, the luck is the great equalizer indeed haha

How does that compare to regular Tsuro?
Tsuro of the Seas includes monsters that spawn on the board and can eat your ship. So while you're moving your boat around, you also have to be wary of the monsters. It also adds more of a luck eleement, as the monsters' movement depends on dice rolls. The regular Tsuro is just following the path you build as you go; no monsters or anything else to worry about.
Do you prefer the more luck related aspect? Although Tsuro is pretty luck related based on what you draw I guess anyway. And sea monsters are fun!
I do prefer the "of the Seas" version because I find the monsters add a lot more fun to the game. Or, perhaps "uncertainty" would be a better word. At any rate, I enjoy the chaos they add :)
