I got a game of #Concordia as mentioned in the other thread and #The Quacks of Quedlinburg earlier in the week with a friend before the social distancing stuff started coming up!

The only game I played was a game of #Agricola (Revised Edition) on Sunday. I played solo, and got one of the better farms I have gotten.
Do you keep track of how you are doing? Have you been increasing your scores?
Not been keeping to close track. But, I think I'm improving.
I am totally a results driven person so I would need to see the improvement but as long as you are enjoying yourself!
For some things I'm kind of ike that. But, for #Agricola I get a bigger bang out of trying weird strategies.
That makes sense! I can see it being a drag if you try the same strategy every time just to maximize your points.

Playing a fun game of #Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar with my daughters today.
I'll bet they loved that.

We introduced The Quacks of Quedlingburg to our 4 and 7 year olds. I discovered this is a great game with kids. We partnered one parent with one kid and allowed the kids to draw and count chips onto the board. Brilliant Fun!The Quacks of Quedlinburg

I haven’t played much at all lately. Been so busy trying to get people’s prescriptions filled so they can stay away.
Have played Princess Matching and Uno and Go Fish with the kids. But that’s about it.

Always impressed by your ability to fit in so many games (same with @R0land1199)!
I've yet to play #Carcassonne. Is that bad? haha I'm honestly not sure how my wife and I would like it. Also, looking forward to seeing your report on #Horrified! Since my wife seems to enjoy co-ops, I'd like to get a more thematic co-op some day, perhaps with some narrative and world-building elements too (not something like #Gloomhaven though).
Haha, I hope it's not bad! There are plenty of classics I've never played. We like it, though. It was easy to learn and teach (it was one of the first games I bought), and it is a nice, relaxing game for days when we're not in the mood for something bigger, but still makes you think a bit.
And I'll write up Horrified after I get one more play in, which should be in the next few days!
No, it's not bad. I don't know if your wife would like it, but it is one of the fightiest games I have, if you want it to be.
Or, if you want to have a calm relaxing experience, it can be almost semi cooperative.

This week got a couple of game sessions in:
I used to look into #Orléans and #Altiplano quite a bit back when I got really into bag-builders. Still haven't gotten them though. I've been looking into Clank Legacy recently because I'd like a solid game with narrative elements and I don't have the confidence that Ryan Laukat's games will give me and my wife the experience that we want. How do you feel about the game?
Clank Legacy? It's great! I have a group of 4 committed to the run. We're playing 2 games every couple of weeks. Haven't lost the excitement of opening stuff up and adding to the board yet!
I'm looking forward to getting Just One to play on a couple of (hopefully) upcoming family trips!
Yeah, I was going to bring it to family events too. I think it will go over well!

We played #Pandemic on Wednesday, and yesterday I managed to get in a solo game of #Diceborn Heroes. I made it to the final boss where I survived two rounds before dying haha Then last night we played #Haiclue with the in-laws. Haiclue was one of my first games I worked on as a copyeditor, so it was fun to see that actually on the table. And it's a fun game, which always helps haha

I finally was able to convince the wife to play a game of Troyes with me. I had been trying to play it with her for weeks. In the meantime, I was playing the game online. She was very skeptical at first, but at the end she beat me by 6 points and I think she liked the game! I hope I get to play again soon.
I would've definitely gotten Troyes if I hadn't gotten Marco Polo. Just holding off on getting another dice placement game for a while. I'm sure I'll love it though.
Where do you play it online? I'd love to try this game some time.
I play on boardgamearena.com. They have lots of games. I'm learning Tzolkin this week and I ordered the real game so I'll have an idea how to play once it gets here.
Cool! I've used the site before...I assume you kind of have to read the rules on your own and learn how to play - no tutorial, right?
