Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who are state-side! 

That's pretty much what I wanted to say, but to make it board gaming related: What are you all thankful for about the wonderful hobby that we all find ourselves a part of?  Are there people you've met through the hobby? A particular trend, theme, or mechanic that has endeared itself to you?  Special board gaming related experiences or memories?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Ultimate cheese here but I am most thankful for the people I've met through board gaming. Mostly as a means to get me to stop playing games with her, Sarah had found me a meetup group that was super friendly and the most welcoming to new people. Covid has really put a damper on the group, but BGA has provided an excellent virtual replacement haha. I truly enjoy the conversations I've had with people here. Going to pull a on this one and just say sorry in advance if I forgot you haha. and of course the poster of the thread that caused this cheese, if for nothing else than putting up with my annoying moves in #In the Year of the Dragon :P

Just gotta do more practice runs. My first attempted game I lost by almost 100 lol

Oh no! Well I have barely scored more than 50 each time I have played so I am a safe space lol. 

Premium User6 months ago

Well in that case I might be on your level. I think I only got 53 lol

Seems like a perfect match lolol

I'll start a game up with you on BGA once I get home tonight then. May the best worst player win

Great! Lol, maybe you will be my first victory in Tzolkin...or maybe you will keep my losing streak alive!

Either way it would be my absolute honor

To be fair, I feel like if you're not being annoying in that game, you're not doing it right.  So kudos to you for advancing your strategy this time haha.

Yeah it does seem a little punishing and that's kind of the point I think

Yeah, at least it seems like it plays very quickly at 2p so its over very quickly one way or another.  I wasn't expecting that.  #The Castles of Burgundy is a lot longer.

I heard in real life it takes forever to set up so maybe that adds to it haha

6 months ago

That's true, there are quite a few little chips you have to set up.  I really like the game though.

Premium User6 months ago

Yeah me too! I probably would never want to play in real life just knowing I could always play on BGA. I'd imagine there'd be a lot more to think about with more than just 2, so that might be a good reason to keep playing

I really enjoy the tactile experience of gaming, but there are certain games (like this one) that I know would never get any traction with most of the people I game with so I'm content to play it online. 

Premium User6 months ago

That's definitely true as well. Couldn't imagine us playing this at home. It's way too mean haha
