  • Lots of fun; easy to pick up if you've played full 7 Wonders game, a little tougher for new players.
  • Excellent reimplementation of 7 Wonders as two players game. Great.
  • One of the best 30-40 min 2-player games in existence.

This week I played a lot on BGA..13 games of #The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine to be exact haha. For the 3 plays I was introducing a friend to the game. He was a little anxious trying hard not to mess up for the other random people we got matched up with. After my 10 other plays, I ensured him there are loads of people out there that are just terrible at the game lol. I don't know if it was just misclicks or what but something was up with some of the people I played with. Don't get me wrong I had a few good groups and very enjoyable games. I think there's a little extra something to this game when you play in person.

Also played #7 Wonders Duel, #Lucky Numbers, and #Bandido on BGA throughout the week just to break up my plays of The Crew and to try something different. I own 7 Wonders Duel and it's a lovely game I can't get enough of. The other 2 were good for quick time wasters.

Other than that, my fiance and I played #Res Arcana, #The Castles of Burgundy, and #Food Chain Magnate this weekend. I think of the 3 she most enjoys COB even though she admits I'm better at it than she is. For some reason she has it in her head that I always beat her at most games so I told her we'll just have to start tracking our wins and losses. Might have to start letting her win some I guess ;P

Playing#Monopoly would feel like being shot in both legs with arrows... but I'm going with#7 Wonders Duel...

Boy, moving into a new house is tough on the gaming lol.

This week I got two games in.

  • #Gaia Project @ 2p - Man this game just gets so much better with each play...I thought it may grow old but it is such an interesting decision space that I keep wanting more! I lost because of one decision I made and that tortures me lol. Definitely cannot wait to get more plays in!
  • #7 Wonders Duel - the wife actually suggested playing this the other night and I was more than willing to oblige! It really is a neat game! I won by citizen scoring, but I had almost won earlier with a military win as well! Even as a gamer who leans toward more heavy stuff this is really satisfying and quick!

I got #Skulk Hollow about a week after initially adding it to my "look into it" list. I was looking for a 2 player quick game and couldn't find #7 Wonders Duel at the right price. Still not convinced it was the best decision for me but I'd like to get more plays in to confirm. 

So after buying #Too Many Bones: Undertow, I'd probably put it towards TMB expansions lololol. Might consider #7 Wonders Duel or #Raiders of the North Sea: Hall of Heroes Expansion though. 

I did my ranking and it was excruciating, haha. Here's mine:

  1. #Oceans
  2. #Evolution: Climate
  3. #Dune
  4. #Everdell
  5. #Western Legends
  6. #Santorini
  7. #Concordia
  8. #The Isle of Cats
  9. #7 Wonders Duel
  10. #Viticulture: Essential Edition

Honestly, any of the games in the top 6 could be my #1 on any given day, depending on my mood, haha. Possibly top 7. Perhaps with more plays of all of them, I'll get better at differentiating, but for now, I love them all equally and for different reasons.

Looks like you have 2 Shem Phillips games! So that could work. I think for myself I've got a couple of sets:

If we did publishers it might be a bit easier to get sets - I've got 2 Stonemaier games, for example, but they have different designers.

#Splendor take up too much space for us to take generally.   Probably the same for #7 Wonders Duel#Cat Lady and #Welcome to... and #The Fox in the Forest I like in general.  They are smaller boxes which would be good for packing.  I would personally bring #Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale, #Innovation, #Friday, #Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, #Love Letter, and probably a couple of #Magic: The Gathering decks.  

Looking at #Root, #Scythe or maybe a combination of #Raiders of the North Sea: Hall of Heroes Expansion and #7 Wonders Duel. But now that a bigger purchase is possible, I might look at #Too Many Bones!

I played two games of #7 Wonders Duel with a fried on TTS. Was his first time playing it and he loved it. He won the first game with a science victory and I won the second with points. Next time I'll show him the Pantheon expansion. Can't wait for Agora, btw! :)
