Played a few games of One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Bang!: The Dice Game during a bachelor party I was at. Then we attempted Space Base on the wedding day yesterday but we had to stop haha

Still no targi? Looking forward to your report on that?

Haha sadly no... I’m hoping sometime in the next few days. I’m starting back to work this week and my wife is due any day now. So games will be hard for awhile hahaha

Supporter10 months ago

I understand. 

Congrats on a new baby.

Thanks! Yeah it’ll either be solo gaming (assuming I’m not to exhausted) or 2 player (assuming both my wife and I are not exhausted). Both of these scenarios are highly unlikely haha

Supporter10 months ago

Hey, I'm all supportive of solo gaming. 

10 months ago

Haha let’s just hope it actually happens! 

Supporter10 months ago

If you get desperate enough it will. 

Supporter10 months ago

I use to do it because of desperation. But, now I do it for fun.

Haha I actually think I understand that a bit. It’s hard to get people over sometimes but you still really want to play. It’s a great compromise!

Supporter10 months ago

I don't even consider it a compromise any more. I don't prefer it to multiplayer games, except for some. But, neither do I prefer multiplayer games, except for some.

10 months ago

I can see that. I think I for sure prefer multiplayer every time, but solo is still really fun if I can’t play with others.

I will need a way to wind down for sure..

4 scenarios in my solo Gloomhaven campaign. Both of my characters are level 2 now and I’m really starting to get the combat system. I’m also loving the slight “deck-building” aspect where you pick your class cards to bring with you to a scenario. 

This game is really good, guys.

Nice! Have you gotten the set up and tear down more streamlined yet?

Supporter10 months ago

Yeah. It’s called leave it set up. Also I went ahead and got the app. It saves a lot of table space. 

10 months ago

Ha! That is awesome! That is what I have heard mostly. both with leaving it up and the app.

Dang someone is putting in WORK

Supporter10 months ago

I’m just leaving it set up! Makes it easy. Plus it’s very alluring sitting over there. Calling to me...

I had a decent week. 

Last Sunday I played a game of Star Trek: Frontiers. I was really doing well and leveling up nicely. I found and attacked the first of two Borg cubes, and I crushed it. So, I got cocky and sailed in for a fight with the second, stronger Borg Cube. I was handed a crushing defeat. But, I had fun. After that I played a game of Forbidden Island "with" my three year old. I did try to give gone some more agency, which did end up losing us the game. I think he needs a little bit more time before he will really grasp the concepts. 

On Saturday I played two games of Carcassonne, and I had a lot of fun. After that I taught my brother in law Innovation. Once again I was just really impressed with how every card is so broken, but that makes it work together so well. I did end up winning that game, but for quite a while he looked like he would.

Carcassonne man, that game just is so classic. So accessible for people too. Whenever my wife and I have kids that and Kingdomino will probably be the first intro games. 

Supporter10 months ago

It is just so fun.

You ever play with expansions?

Supporter10 months ago

I few. They are fun. I like them. I don't know if I like them better than the base game.

My wife has some friends that come over just to play with the Dragon and Princess expansion, pretty take that and it has a lot of opportunity to swing the game status!

Supporter10 months ago

I really do get a bang out of that particular expansion.

You have to definitely play with people who will not take it personally when you make the Dragon eat them...then steal their castle with a tunnel...
