Played a solo game of #Clans of Caledonia

How well did you do? 

Supporter9 months ago

I got pretty close to 115 points which is the top for the "Newbie" score level.  You don't actually try to score more than the Automa you just try to reach different levels.  I also believe I missed giving myself points for a couple of the end of round bonuses.

Supporter9 months ago

I hate that feeling of wondering if you missed something or not. 

Supporter9 months ago

Yeah, thankfully for me with Clans I still feel like I had a great time and really got to play the game.  Which is the most important part.

Supporter9 months ago

That’s the best part of playing solo. 

Supporter9 months ago

Yes it is.

Got in another play of #Heroes of Land, Air, & Sea with the Pestilence and Order and Chaos expansions. Love the new factions in these expansions, especially the Birdfolk, as they have some interesting abilities. Also, that floating continent just looks super cool. We also taught it to my brother-in-law's girlfriend, who isn't a gamer by any means, and yes, she did enjoy it. So that's another win!

Supporter9 months ago

That game sounds so cool.

Man I think I want try this game.  Sounds like the $$$ could get high.

It’s so stinkin’ good. But yeah it could get pretty pricey. Fortunately, I won the base game in a giveaway Gamelyn did during its original Kickstarter and then I got the expansions for review. I must say I am very lucky/blessed in that regard, otherwise there’s no way I’d have it.

Nice!

  • #Santorini - just one game this week
  • #Jaipur - 2x - I got this to play with my wife and she likes it! This is a great little game. So simple and quick and yet strategic enough to keep us engaged. Perfect coffee shop game.
  • #Everdell: Pearlbrook - we love this game. Played with the Pearlbrook expansion, which is pretty good. I wouldn't say it's an essential expansion, but it's fun and gives you different options for paths to victory. My wife edged me for 2 points.

Got in a couple games of #Carcassonne: Star Wars Edition. First time it got to the table in almost three years.  I know it isn’t a favorite of #Carcassonne purists but I enjoy it more than the original simply due to the combat mechanism that adds a little bit of “take that” to the game.

I like Carcassonne, but I think I'd love the Star Wars version. One, the theme speaks to me, and two, I think that combat mechanic would be fun. Now I just gotta play it haha

Supporter9 months ago

There is a Star Wars Version?!?!??!

How does the combat work?

Supporter9 months ago

Really really abstracted. Each players rolls 1-3 dice depending on a couple factors. Only the highest die roll from each player matters. If there is a tie each player gets 1 point and they roll again. The loser gets a point per dice rolled and removed meeple from contested area. The winner leaves their meeple in place. 

One cool thing is if you place a tile next to an occupied planet you can choose to fight for that planet instead of putting a meeple on the tile you just placed. 

For me the fun is in winning or losing a fight and the mild frustration that causes more so than how the combat functions.

Haha nice. Sounds like a nice little twist on the original!

Supporter9 months ago

It's nice that it has some new mechanics and it's not just Carcassonne with a Star Wars skin.

The only thing I managed to play last week was three games of #CIV: Carta Impera Victoria. It is a great quick little game.

I have never heard of this, what is it like?

Supporter9 months ago

I wrote about my first impressions here.

Excellent! I will read through that.

I am helping a friend who is designing a game and did some more playtesting on that.

Played a game of #Nemesis in which the player that  played as the Android won by escaping on an escape pod with an intruder egg. The ship blew up right after and everyone else died. 

Supporter9 months ago

I think I'd really like to play this game.  I don't think I'd end up buying it at any point but sounds like it's very thematic.  Did you happen to put on some Alien Soundtrack music?  I think that'd be really fun.

Yeah if you get a chance to play it’s definitely worth it for the stories that come out of it. It’s very luck dependent so that isn’t your thing it might not hit with you. There is a YouTube video of ambient sounds specifically for Nemesis that is a lot of fun
