Got in some great games of #The Champion of the Wild

5 months ago

I followed that before and during the KS, but didn't back it. It looked really good though.

Premium User5 months ago

yeah, I skipped both kickstarter campaigns, and ended up buying it online, so worth it

Nice, any particularly hilarious combinations?

Some really great arguments from the kids. My 8-year-old argued that the Chameleon would would win the cheese roll because it would just tag it with its tongue. My 10-year-old won diving by saying her armadillo would roll along the diving board and cannon ball into the pool

Ha, those are great, I love when you have no good animals for a particular event and have to really stretch to make something plausible, leads to some excellent creativity.

Played a lot of work. Also punched #Gaia Project, #A Feast For Odin: The Norwegians Expansion, and #Mage Knight. I’m getting everything organized and all set up for my first game of Mage Knight. Should get it played this weekend.

Thems some heavy games you got there. They're all so good. Good luck with Mage Knight. I've played the game probably 5-ish times now, and I'm pretty sure that I haven't played it completely correctly. So much rules overhead. Still though, definitely one of my favorite games of all time.

Ok.  My gaming group usually gets together about once a month to play gloomhaven and then sporadically for other games.  Due to some schedule conflicts and then covid we have not gotten together to play anything since December.  (We did try some various online games). We finally got together over the weekend and played two scenarios and it was like a breath of fresh wind.  I didn't know how much I missed getting together with some fellow enthusiasts and barely squeaking by a dungeon or two.  So, no record number of games played.  No new games we hadn't tried before.  But it was so much fun.

Again, lots of #Spirit Island solo - I will move the difficulty up as soon as I try all the spirits. I loved the Ocean's Hungry Grasp as it changes the decision space considerably.

Other than that, some
#Wavelength with friends (a superb party game, now that friends' visits are allowed), and one 2p game of #Railroad Ink: Deep Blue Edition

I didn't have much time for games this week, but it should be better now!

I think Oceans Hungry Grasp is my favorite spirit.

#Wavelength is great, leads to some hilarious moments of trying to get inside someone's head and massively overthinking it! Also, you occasionally learn and interesting thing or two about your friends.

This week we played

#Silver 2 plays

#Exit: The Abandoned Cabin This completed all the exit games released so far for us. It was funny that the first one released was the last one we played.

#Tags 2 plays

#One Key 7 plays

#Forgotten Waters 1 play of the last scenarios Spoils of the damned...we made it through part 1.

Overall a quiet week for us.

I think #Silver is way more fun than it has any right to be.

5 months ago

It really plays bigger than the little game that it is...we liked it quite a bit.

How are you enjoying Forgotten Waters?

5 months ago

My family and I are really enjoying it.  A little bit sad that we are on the last story, but I'm hoping for more content going forward.  It's a great mix of narrative adventure (pirates), comedy (so many little things that are really funny) and a game, that occasionally is quite challenging( we played  the first part of one scenario (all games are broken in to 2 parts) 3 times before we got to move on to the second part).  The voice acting for all the scenarios is truly spectacular and the game has really nice components and a gorgeously illustrated book that you play on.  I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lighter narrative experience with enough game play that you don't feel like you are just "playing" a book.  Keep in mind we are experienced gamers and for someone just starting out this may be a closer to a medium weight game.  I highly recommend it though.

Awesome, thanks for the insight!

Played #Scythe once and I played #Fuse twice and FINALLY beat Elite difficulty. For our first game night since the quarantine (yay!) we played #The Taverns of Tiefenthal which was a lot of fun! Interesting deckbuilding to say the least. Then we played #Hadara which, felt a lot like #7 Wonders but I found to be more enjoyable (I still like 7 Wonders though). Then last night we (me, my wife, and her brother) played two games of #Clank! with the The Mummy's Curse expansion. Dang, what a fantastic game Clank! is!

How did Scythe go?  How many did you play with?  Any expansions?

5 months ago

Scythe went so well. We've been playing it two-player and it's still such a good game. My wife decimated me, too. She's so good at those types of games haha We didn't use any expansions--don't have any. We have the modular board, but have yet to try it out. Probably the next time we play we'll bust that out.

If you like Clank! I definitely recommend #Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated.  My group was nearly finished the campaign when Covid hit and we were really enjoying it!

5 months ago

I actually bought Clank! Legacy a month or so ago when it was on sale. I have yet to open it, but I'm dying to play through it. I'm debating about waiting for two others to join the group or just play it 2-players with my wife.

We had a dedicated group of 4 to play.  If you regularly play 2 I am sure it will be fine as well.  I tend to like the chaos of a full table myself.

5 months ago

I played #Tang Garden online in tabletopia.com with friends.  Wish the UI in that site is not so clunky and some actions can be automated.  The game took longer than it did if we played in IRL.

5 months ago

I played #The Defence of Procyon III: taught it to a new group of people, went in a satisfyingly different direction to other games which gives me hope it will have good replay value.

#Cry Havoc got half way through a game on TTS, first time at 3P, had a blast. I am currently lagging very far behind on points as the machines but have hope that my war engine will kick in and can play some murderous catch up.

Cry Havoc is another one of those SciFi games that look like they aren't a 10 hour endeavor but also looks very fun.

5 months ago

It is a lot of fun, you only take 15 actions the whole game, which can be as simple as drawing a couple of cards and discarding one so I imagine once you have a grasp of the game (I was playing with 2 new players) you could get through a game in 60-90 minutes without too much trouble. What having limited actions does do is make every actions feel significant. Plus I love the way combat is decided in this game, lead to some really interesting plays as you can have different priorities going into the battle.

Alright, it's official.  I'll have to check it out.  I've heard before the combat is good.
