You have entered the Sonoran Desert, a place of vast beauty. Technicolor sunsets pop out over vistas revealing deep canyons, trickling tributaries, and ancient pueblo cliff dwellings. Immerse yourself in the secrets of the desert in a flick-and-write game in which cunning and dexterity meet.

In Sonora, players flick wooden discs onto a game board representative of different vibrant landscapes across the Sonoran sands. Each area encompasses a different unique game, so skillful aim is required to play in the region of a player's choosing and score points on your dry-erase sheet! But watch out for other players eager to bump discs to score points for themselves.

  • A nice competitive twist on the *blank* & write mechanic. Enjoyed the challenge of when to flick which numbers and knocking my opponents out of the bonuses/spaces they wanted.

Was able to play #Sonora, #Point Salad, and #Shards of Infinity: Deckbuilding Game a few days ago. I really enjoyed Shards, only had time for one quick game, would love to try it again though.

We have been playing #Pandemic Legacy: Season 2.  So far we have played 11 total games, 3 prolog games, and then 8 games to get us to July.  We lost 4 in a row from March to April and then turned things around in May and June.  So far really enjoying it.  It is quite different than Season 1.  Which at this point I would say I liked a bit more.  Season 2 does introduce some new mechanics but through the first six months the game itself has not chnaged all that much and I was hoping for a bit more variety.  I'm sure that will prob happen in thelast six months.

We also played #Adventure Games: The Dungeon.  This was well written and voice narrated through the app.  This is a relatively simple adventure (if it were a video game it would be a point and click) but with some decent branching outcomes.  We did miss a few key things towards the end of the adventure, which I won't go into as they are all spoilers, but it would have been nice if they had desinged it a bit differently so that you wouldn't miss big parts of the adventure because you chose to do A before B, C and D.  Overall though we enjoyed it.  The nice part is nothing is destoryed so you could easily hand it off to someone else to play unlike say the EXIT series of games which for the most part are one and done.

We played a couple games of #Scooby-Doo!: Betrayal at Mystery Mansion Which i would descibe as Betrayal light.  The theme is great.  All the haunts are named after episodes of the TV show or movies.  The game seems to suffer a bit from the same things #Betrayal at House on the Hill and its DnD counterpart #Betrayal at Baldur's Gate did and that is the Haunts are not written in a clear manor so that everyone knows what to do.  In one case we played a Haunt where one of the main mechanics of the haunt was completely left out of the book.  I had to check the forums to figure it out.  And after looking around the forums realized that there are quite a few more issues as well.  These are in my opionion unforgiveable errors.  Someone should have absolutely caught those kinds of simeple errors on the very first play test.  Beyond that though the game is fun and if you are interested in a Betrayal game but are new to the concept or gaming in general this would be a great game to start off with, and then if you like it you can work your way through the other two and eventually #Betrayal Legacy, one of my favortie Legacy games to date.

 

Yesterday we played a couple games of #Sonora.  A flick and write game.  Love both aspects of the game.  The flicking is fun and you can mess with the other players if you want to.  There are 4 sections you flick in to and those correspond to the 4 sections you can write your points in to.  Each section has bonuses that allow you to chain scoring from one section to another and on and on and sometimes just one disk can chain many times.  The final game yesterday my son and I tied at 266 and he ended up winning the tie breaker as he had one more discovery bonus than I did.  Really enjoy this game and would highly reccomend to anyone who enjoys roll and writes or flicking games.
