Update on game shipment.

So, a few days ago I posted about five games I was supposed to be receiving. They were;

Spirit Island, 

7 Ronin, 

Deep space d6, 

Unlock! The Island of Dr. Goorse, 

And, lastly, Porta Nigra. 

I am pleased to report that they were able to bring it all except for Porta Nigra. 

I haven't had much of a chance to look at the games. And, no chance to play them.... But I am looking forward to trying them out. 

One note. I did receive Deep Space D6 from user u/nealkfrank in trade. He very generously included the expansion and the unlock game. I give him thanks.

Of course! I was not getting either of them to the table soon so it was a fair trade :) Hopefully you can get a play in soon!

Do you still have company Chris? Or have you had a chance to game?

Marshwiggle92 Supporter4 days ago | 1 point[-]

They are here until the 24th. After them we get a week break then we get more company for two weeks. Then we get another week break before we have the opportunity to host a bunch of people from Costa Rica that are coming here for a wedding. 

The day after the wedding, I have to go to Honduras for a week for business. That gets us to the end of February. 

Middle of March I think I have to spend some time in Guatemala for some church stuff. 

The end of March I'm planning on going back to Kansas for my sister's wedding. I don't know how long I'll be there. Probably a week or two. Hoping I can get a game or two of Scythe in whole I'm there. And hoping to bring my copy back with me. 

I'm other words, life is good. And I will get in gaming whenever I can. But, the next several months look very busy.

Great Chris! It must be agonizing waiting for things to arrive. Especially with all of us gabbing about games kn here.

It can be, but, it is awfully exciting. These are games I bought or traded for a while ago, I knew I owned them and I had that feeling of ownership. But then, that almost raises the excitement level when they finally get here.

Nice! Gotta let us know how Deep Space D-6 is. I've seen it around and nearly picked it up once.

I was able to play it a handful of times. Definitely a fun quick game, especially good if you like rolling dice and dice allocation. It tells a cool narrative and there is a lot in one little box! Also very clean stylistically.

I do love the look. And I was really looking for something light and fast, and I do think I will like it. I really am looking forward to trying it.

I do enjoy tossing dice and allocating haha Games like Proving Grounds is basically that--chucking and allocating--and I really like it. And I enjoy a good Space game, so that helps too.

Ya man, give it a look. The mechanics are really slick for keeping track of health of enemies and the dice are real nice.

I think I will! Thanks for the info!

The dice are quite nice.

I do like nice dice :)

We all do.

It seems like a common problem among board gamers haha

Common positive trait would be more accurate.

I stand corrected :)

I'm looking forward to trying it. I plan on writing reports as I get some familiarity with my new games.

Spirit Island is my favourite co-op!  Enjoy!

I really expect to enjoy it.

What a haul man! I’m pumped you got so many of the games you were hoping for. Was it more than you thought you were going to get?

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

I didn't know what to expect. They were pretty sure they could bring it all... But i know how much room game boxes take. I did send them a list of what they would prioritize if they ran out. And Porta Nigra was at the bottom of the list. So, I am very pleased with the result.

That’s cool man, I’m glad you got them. I’m assuming you will be breaking it Spirit Island immediately?? Haha 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 days ago | 1 point[-]

Soon as I can. Don't know if I will have a chance before the company leaves or not.

Man that’s always hard, but I hope you enjoy the time you get with them regardless!

Oh, I am.
