Had a nice week, my wife was gone all weekend so I was able to get some good solo games in, but also had a friend over!

  • #Race for the Galaxy - 3-player: This game is really nice. I am really getting into a grove on this one. First time at 3-player and it made it harder to keep track of what people are doing and I enjoyed it!
  • #Concordia - 3-player: The more I play this, the more I enjoy it! I have played it mostly digitally to this point, but I much prefer it in person. There is a lot of tension since you do not see the score until the end and I love it. Quick turns and a dynamic decision space is great!
  • #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) - Solo: This was probably one of the weirder more agressive games of this I have played. I won on the second Dominance Check because I kept the blocks in check and made sure I was leading in disks. Very dynamic!
  • #Barrage - 2-player: I did a full review and first impressions article here if you want to see more on this!
  • #Too Many Bones - Solo: My love for this game continues to grow. There is alot of content in the core set but I keep craving more and more content. This time around I played as Boomer against the Tyrant Drellen. It was a challenge because Boomer does not heal herself really at all and Drellen deals a lot of Poison Damage. I made the mistake of letting him get close and I needed to run more on this and lost by one health....Still had a blast!

Heck yes!! Are you just aiming to get the Core Set?

I think that #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) has a lot of potential to have a lot of weird games.

Oh FOR SURE. there is a lot of randomness with the AI, You can kinda judge a little more with a real human player but Wakhan is more random.

But, it is so so fun.

I completely agree! I have a great time trying to get out of sticky situations!

And, does it ever know how to get me into sticky situations.....

Lol the last game I played I was the British and she just kept pounding the Russian blocks. She had AT LEAST a 7 block lead with the Russians. My next turn I plopped out 5 British blocks negating the dominance and scored the dominance check the next turn to score on disks. I felt GREAT lol.

That sounds like her.

Awesome week !!  #Concordia of course as others have pointed out is such a great game and one I'll have to break out again real soon. And then that huge #Barrage box that's just begging to be played hanging out on my table. I'm going to try to get a solo play of that in pretty soon!

Seriously Concordia is real nice!

Do some research on the solo AI, it will expedite the process for sure!

I just watched a video on how to play Barrage and it's all set up on my kitchen table. Have to watch a solo explanation before I really get started. I'm kind of surprised with how simple it sounds. Of course I'm sure I'll screw something up haha

Oh totally, I tried to communicate that the mechanics are straight forward, and it is just some of the new concepts that are harder to grasp! Once you get into it, it is very intuitive.

Wow, great week! It's been too long since I played Concordia. Need to get that one played again!

2 months ago

It really is nice! Really Easy to teach and nice decisions but not too overhwleming!

Good games!  Concordia is one of my favourites of all time and Race is fast becoming a go to for a quicker game.

I think my group is coming around more on Concordia, so that is neat! Race is definitely fun, once you get over the icon barrier it is a fun one. 

Premium User2 months ago

I don't know if my group overall is in love with it but I drag them in to playing it now and then.  Especially has I have a bunch of maps for it.

I'm with you on the icon barrier but yeah, once you are over that it's a lot of fun.  Tabletopia has a version with all of the expansions too.

I definitely would not say it is love with my group but it is much more enjoyment now!

The Nights Around a Table video helps sooooo much and being able to play slower at first made the game more approachable.

Glad you enjoy Concorida more.  I know that I definitely love the game myself. :)

It is really clean! Do you also have the Salsa expansion?

Premium User2 months ago

I have Salsa, Venus, and almost all of the maps except for the one that came with the "base game" version of Venus.
