Only race for the galaxy. Multiple plays.

Had a Saturday game session so got quite a few games in:

  • High Society: First play of this game.  It was quite fun!  It's short and definitely requires an ability to read people and predict future game states.  I'd definitely play it again!
  • Terraforming Mars: One of my favourites.  Last time we played we put in all the expansions and found it a bit much.  This time we pulled out Venus and everything to do with floaters.  The game was a lot smoother and focused to my mind.  I think we'll put back in the World Council bump to speed it up a bit as the game still took quite a while.
  • Western Legends: First play of this one for me.  I quite enjoyed it!  People were comparing it to Merchants and Marauders but I definitely prefer Western Legends.  The different uses of cards are great and the wanted vs Marshal points were great at creating conflict that made sense.  Now that I've gone through a game and seen it end to end I'm intrigued to get another crack at it.
  • Heaven & Ale: I wasn't sure what this one was going to be like.  I got a very good price on it used mostly because I'd heard good things about it.  We only played it two players but I think this was my favourite new game of the night!  It was super tight and it was always a scramble to find some more money to take an action you wanted to take further down the track.  Deciding when to trigger a given set of tiles was amazing.  I need money now but if I can trigger those tiles in 2 turns I'll get a lot more.  How do I make that happen?   This one I want to get to the table with more players ASAP!
  • Tiny Towns:  I've played this one quite a bit.  It's a good one to bring out when you have 30 minutes left at the end of the night.  Enjoyed it a lot as always.  It was just as fun at two players as it was at more.  (It's a bit meaner at 2 because you can easily see what the other player is going for and try to screw with them.)

Pretty good week for me!

Played two quick games with the wife. She spanked me at Kingdomino then I turned around and owned her at Sushi Go Party! You cannot neglect those end game scoring cards!

My wife beat me by 2 points in Lost Cities, and then crushed me in Carcassonne. She claims not to be good at games. A likely story...

I like Lost Cities. Haven't played that one in a long time! My wife always decimates me in Carcassonne. I don't know what it is about that game...haha

We've played Lost Cities twice now, and I really enjoy it, although she doesn't enjoy it quite as much.

This week I played Outer Rim (twice!), Pit, Clue, and You've Got Crabs!

The last three aren't games I would normally elect to play, but honestly I had fun playing them. Sometimes it's all about the people you're with, and it was fun playing with friends and their kids. Also, I hadn't played Clue in probably 20+ years, so that was actually a lot of fun.

How was the second play of Outer Rim??

So good. I played with my wife, and despite the late hour and her cold increasing in strength, she enjoyed it and said she wants to play it again soon (so she doesn't forget how haha). It worked well as a two-player, and was definitely shorter than a four player.

That is great! You got a win win there! The Wife likes it and it is shorter at a smaller player count.

I had a group over for a short game night and we played Celestia and Professor Evil and the Citadel of time.
