#Imhotep made it to the table for the first time in a while. Always a fun time.

#Azul: Summer Pavilion arrived on the weekend from Amazon and we got in two plays of that. Both of which my son won.

How many players did you have on #Imhotep? I found it’s cut throat with 2 but a lot more relaxed with 3+

Supporter8 months ago

3 players. 

I did have one really cutthroat move...my son was trying to collect additional statues for points and the market had 3 of them. I used one of the cards that lets you place a stone and sail a ship with one action and sailed the single cube ship to the market haha

How is Imhotep?

Sorry missed your comment. I enjoy it. Glad it is in my collection and anticipate that it will stay. Dont really feel the need for any of the expansions.

Finally got to play Castles of Burgundy this weekend. I bought it over a year ago and it just never made it to the table. But I am already hooked. What a fantastic 2 player game! Now to just figure out how to upgrade the components.

I played a 2 player game of Small World with my dad. First time playing it and would recommend it. Also played a few games of  Magic: The Gathering. Lost some, won some.

I still haven't had a chance to play #Small World but wanted to try it out at least once some day. One of 3 Minute Board Game's recent video covered top games to play on steam and that was one of them so hopefully soon!

The Dwarves!  I love this game but it seems to be largely forgotten.

Played Pax Pamir on Vassal. First time playing the game - am addicted big time now. Beautiful game design.

Played our first scenario of Gloomhaven. Playing second one today. Loving it. 

Played the physical games of Seven Wonders Duel and Grifters with my boyfriend. Both games are so addictive. It is nice to have shorter games that is not difficult to play or set up  with so much replay value. I play this a lot on my tablet with the app. Looking at the expansion.

Also played these boardgame apps on my tablet- Galaxy Trucker, Pandemic, Lords of Waterdeep with Skullport expansion, Onitama, and Terraforming Mars. All excellent apps.

Struggling to learn Twilight Struggle.

Anybody else have a favorite board game app?

I'm just getting into apps or anything digital these days. I've played #Tokaido and #On Tour apps but they're not necessarily games I'd play all that often. I'm looking forward to trying out #Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization app since I've heard great things. I also wanted to tackle some of the games mentioned by @3MBG on his latest video: https://www.boardgameatlas.com/forum/HheGJP52WB/20-great-games-on-steam-for-board-gamers--youtube.

I want to try out #Raiders of the North Sea too.

I was playing #Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization app for a while. It is so hard and complex to figure out the right strategies to ever win. It is definitely something to dig into when you have the time, so now is perfect. #Raiders of the North Sea is one of my favorite board games. I have not downloaded the app because it does not offer the expansions. Hopefully they soon will. Thanks for the other info.

That's good to hear, and I liked that it seemed to have some various challenges it offers. When I saw SU&SD's review of Through the Ages, and seeing all of the cubes, I knew I wouldn't want to manage all those.

I've been enjoying #Architects of the West Kingdom so I'll definitely be trying out Raiders. And I hope you check out the video! I was surprised by how many of the games on the list had me wanting to try them.

The video is great. I watch a lot of his videos. His taste is very similar to mine. Thanks for the link.

I introduced my parents to #Forbidden Island. I thought it'd be a walk in the park but we actually lost! And we were sooooooo close! (I didn't even realize you could lose a game by having the water rise to the highest point haha)

On another note, my mom wants to try out #Viticulture: Essential Edition. Phew, wish me luck everyone. It'll be her most complex game yet. It'll also be my wife's first time experiencing Viticulture with more than 2p. Bonus action spaces will finally be available :)

Oh man! Two tiles left! haha My wife and I like to make our own island designs. Some of them become nearly impossible haha But it's fun to mix things up a bit :)

Got a play of Star Realms in over lunch. First time playing and it was quite enjoyable. We played just the base game and had 30 authority to have a shorter game to get the feel of it. We also did Pandemic with friends over Zoom.

If you like Star realms, try Hero Realms! You get unique characters and a campaign.

After playing a few games I do think that would be a really fun addition. One of these days...

Still, my wife and I are really enjoying it

I have actually been able to play a ton of online stuff.

#Agricola (Revised Edition) x2

#Concordia x2

#The Castles of Burgundy in the middle of a second game

#Trajan in the middle of a second game

#Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar in the middle of a second game

And I am in the middle of a game of #Kanban as well. I also have a couple games of #Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization through the app as well. I have been enjoying that, it is hard to be good though lol. 

Not much in real life though, my wife and I have been jamming on a 2000 piece puzzle so that has taken over the table!

Supporter8 months ago

Glad you still like #The Castles of Burgundy

Supporter8 months ago

How do you like kanban?

Still in the middle of the game, I am playing online on a turn by turn basis so I think it will take a while! I am still learning the game but it is interesting for sure. 

Supporter8 months ago

It really looks interesting.

There is really a lot of interconnected parts to make quite a complex package. I’m still learning the game as I play but it seems to be more palatable mechanics wise than I thought, it’s tricky to know what’s a good move lol

I finally got to play some board games this week! I played 3 solo games of Root with the better bot project. My record is currently 1-2. I had a ton of fun! Look for my review to come soon!

I'm looking forward to your report. How many hours are you playing with?
