  • Favorite strategy light-war game. Great game with amazing action point system, cool card combat system and innovative pyramid tech upgrades that can make each faction unique during gameplay. Best of the genre. Great for 3-5 players.
  • Fun, intense game. Hard for me to get into it enough to keep track of all the power tiles.
  • One the best area control games I've ever played. Drafting power tiles, trying to build some sort of economy that works all while combat takes place every round with zero luck. Add on top the ability to get giant mythological monsters and you're in for a fantastic time.
  • The minis in this one a SO nice. And it's a really fun game too.

I majorly struggled with #Risk: Legacy. Luckily/unluckily that campaign got cut short by... certain global events. I just hate the gameplay in Risk. There are much better dudes on a map games like #Kemet that I would rather play.

#Kemet is one of my favs, I did get rid of my copy because I kickstarted #Kemet: Blood and Sand. Never did get a chance to play #Inis. If i'd have to start all over again, I would get #Glass Road, #Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game (with expansions), and #Seasons.

 

Hmm the most common comparisons I've heard are with games like #Blood Rage, #Cyclades, #Kemet, and #Rising Sun. Inis seems to be a little more on the abstract end though

A few games this week:

  • #Trains (Solo, Physical): Tried out a multiplayer variant I found online.  The variant was a good bit of fun but not comparable to multiplayer.  
  • #Spirit Island (Multiplayer, TTS): One of my favourite co-op games.  It seemed harder to play online than in person but we managed a reasonably solid win against the bare bones invaders.  
  • #Lords of Hellas (Multiplayer, TTS): First time playing this game.  Going in I wasn't sure if it would be a gimmicky game or a true dudes on a map game.  After the one play I definitely am leaning towards the latter.  It's a great dudes on a map game in the same vein as #Kemet, #Cyclades, #Blood Rage, #Inis etc.  I don't know if I can say that it matches up with those classics yet, more plays are required, but it definitely had elements I really enjoy from those type of games.  
  • #Inis (Multiplayer, TTS): I've played this one a few times before but it's been a while.  The different ways to win really make the game and I had to relearn some lessons I learned the last time we played it.  Great game and a good follow up to Lords of Hellas for a dudes on a map evening.

To quote myself:

I played about 3 games of it a while ago but my memory of it is that it's a lot of fun.  The games are quick in a way that reminded me of #Cyclades. The victory conditions really sneak up on you sometimes so you are always paying attention to the other players board states and their plans.  I liked it quite a bit!

I own #Cyclades#Kemet, & #Blood Rage all of which I would qualify as "dudes on a map but not a wargame" style games.  Out of those I think my #1 is probably Cyclades with Inis and Blood Rage a toss up for second with Kemet a close last.  All great games.  I'd have picked up Inis a while ago except someone in my group owns it already.

Generally I would say I am not a mean player unless the game calls for it.  So most euros etc I tend to focus on my own strategies UNLESS someone else has a crazy good move that is easily blocked then I will do it.  I consider that to be good play though rather than mean.  

Dudes on a map games or any direct conflict games are a different story.  I still tend to not be the back stabbing type but I will 100% pull out all stops to win.  Games like #Forbidden Stars, #Blood Rage, #Kemet, #Cyclades etc are all about dominating your opponent and taking their stuff if they get in your way.  

Even then I will try not to completely wipe anyone out as it makes the game not fun.  Most of these games don't encourage that behaviour anyway.  

The one game where I will definitely pull out all stops is #Twilight Imperium 4th Edition.  But really diplomacy and relationships are a major part of the game.  You can't let yourself be walked over without some push back but it's also silly to go all in on someone for one incident.

Played a 4p #Kemet game last night.  Back to back weeks so the game went a little smoother.  Over in about 75 min, really tight scores.  Glad to have gotten this one back to the table.

Wrapped up the night with a 2v2 game of Dice Throne using #Dice Throne: Season 2 - Tactician vs. Huntress vs #Dice Throne: Season 2 - Gunslinger vs. Samurai.  The T & H team won thanks to back to back defense rolls (needed 4 or 5 to block) and did it twice.  Had a lot more than doing 2 v 2 than 1 v 1.  May need to actually pick up the rest of the Season 2 sets and probably all of season 1 while i'm at it ;)
