Dixit and Qwixx with friends who came to visit. We had six players and I had to come up with some easier games.

We played Paladins of the West Kingdom.
Followed that up with Foodies, Cinephile, and MegaCity: Oceania.

Played a game of rftg tonight. I lost.
0-1 in 2020? ;)
Yep, BUT I had fun and it can only go up from here.
That’s for sure!

I played the game of waterslides and wave pool at an indoor waterpark haha I'm hoping to get in something today, even if it's a small/short one like Circle the Wagons. That'd make a pleasant first game of the year!
Ha! There is a waterpark board game. I think this is the one I'm thinking of...https://www.boardgamequest.com/slide-blast-review/

Those meeples are fantastic! Looks cute and fun. Almost reminds me of Tsuro the way the tiles are.
Yes! It reminds me more of Indigo with the same hex shaped tiles and curved paths.
Hahaha! Chutes and ladders you mean? ;)
haha You know it! I actually asked my wife while we were there if she could think of how to turn the water park into a board game. She also said chutes and ladders haha
OR it would be a tile-laying game where you're trying to connect and score certain features in this sprawling water park...
... see? now you've got me thinking about this.
Haha! or it would be some sort of complex economic game where you need to advertise, pay for water, make repairs and additions, filter the water, provide the right staff etc in order to make the most $$.
That tile-laying idea reminds me of the old NES game, Pipe Dream, or something to that effect. I loved playing that, connecting pipes to make the water/slime/whatever it was go where it needed to go. A slight tweak in theme wouldn't be difficult.
And your economic game idea sounds a bit like Dinosaur Island, just with killer waterslides instead of previously extinct reptiles haha I'd play that!
Now to get designing lol

3 games of Disney Princess Cupcake Party with my girls.
Then this afternoon I got two games of Scythe Rise of Fenris in. Just finished episode 4 and I’m totally blown away with the expansion so far.

I like the consistency of the games you’ve played lol
But really can’t wait until I can play games with my daughters!

Second. Should I get Fenris when I win this month, haha. But for real is it something I should consider? Scythe is one of my favorite games.
If Scythe is already one of your favorite games you absolutely must get Fenris. I haven’t seen all the new content yet but the story so far is incredible and I can’t wait to see the rest of the new additions to the game.

Awesome. Well I'll move it high up on my list. Although besides backing Oath it may be my only purchase for the year. I have so many games I want to play multiple times that I think for the time being in my life (given how much I can or can't play) I need to say to myself my collection is complete.
Yes Fenris is so good?

That's what I hear.
I played go fish with my son this morning at his request.
Good job! Gotta bring up the next gamer generation!
