#Coup has some pretty cool characters

#Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game mall santa!

#Choson again has some beautifully bizarre characters

#The Grizzled doomed French soldiers

Something I have been wondering about is the role of Kickstarter in the coming years. 

In their last fiscal year CMON reported a dramatic drop in revenue from Kickstarter. While, at the same time, a dramatic upswing in sales on the retail side. If course I imagine some of that has to do with their partnering with Asmodee USA for distribution, but I really don't know. Anyway. I wonder if we might see some established, Kickstarter heavy companies like CMON or Awaken Realms switch back to more of a retail stratagy. 

Anyway. I don't know what CMON has planned for the coming year, if they will do more or less Kickstarters than in previous years. But, I have been wondering what is going to happen with companies like that in the future. 

This probably doesn't count but.... I would pick Asmodee as long as I could continue to play everything they owned. 

ahahaha! ok but which company inside Asmodee's cavernous insides would you pick from there? 

You mean Asmodee doesn't own everyone yet? Maybe a couple more months....

I too was wondering about that Asmodee situation in regards to the rankings. I mean FFG and zman are both owned by Asmodee. 

I pretty always impulse buy if I find a game in a charity shop, if I don't know the game I will usually google it and if it has an average rating above a 6.5/10 and the theme/mechanics appeal I will usually take it, I always figure that if I get one game out of it, even if it is laughably bad then it is worth the £2-£5 I pay for it.

Winners from Charity shops have been: #King of Tokyo (great gateway game), #Gloom, #War on Terror (hilariously satirical, a better version of risk), #Once Upon a Time: The Storytelling Card Game (just a wonderful group activity)

Games that I have only played once or twice and then passed on: #Smash Up (liked it but realised it just wouldn't get played much), #Game of Thrones: The Card Game (again, it wasn't bad, but wasn't looking to get into a CCG) #Munchkin (similar story, not good enough to see regular play, knew a friend of mine would enjoy it a lot more)

I have occaisionally been suckered in on a great deal on Ebay, I am now much more discerning but when I first had disposable income, I was picking up any interesting looking games if I felt I was getting a good deal. I buy most of my games second hand, but the following are games I didin't search for and just came across.

Winners: #The Grizzled (so good and bought for like £2, a small co-op which I haven't found many of), #Choson (set collection with a bunch of take that, quick but wonderfully tactical, aslo bought it for £1.20 so can't complain), #Supervillain: This Galaxy Is Mine! (stayed on my shelf of shame for a long time, one I will write about this week)

Losers: #The Staufer Dynasty (I really need to give this another chance, but it was just a little dry first time around)

I think I go through phases of a particular theme/mechanic really appealing. However, Asymmetry is a massive pull for me, and any kind of deck/engine building being incorporated, or just generally upgrading your faciont/character, this doesn't have to be the core mechanic, but I like to growth in a game.

We played #Fresco for the first time tonight and enjoyed it. Got a game of #Everdell in as well. It's quickly becoming one of our favorites!


Claustrophobia De Profundis

Claustrophobia: Furor Sanguinis 

Hours of dark times and adventure to balance against the tribulations of the outside world.

That’s for sure an interesting concept, and the quality of game it is mentioned in the post is one reason why I like most Asmodee games. Typically seems like Anne you can trust seeing on a game. I don’t think this game would be for me however.

I ran a Catan National Qualifier. We had 16 participants. It was really fun to watch the competition. People were stoked to play in it and the prize support from Asmodee was great. The winner is going to go to Columbus for the finals with a chance to win a trip to worlds on Malta!

Someone else at the con borrowed and played my fully painted and blinged Scythe.

I got to play Silver and Gold, Medieval Academy and It's a Wonderful Life

Unfortunately, it's not just FFG. All of Asmodee is affected. I expect more news will come out soon.

I've heard rumblings that Asmodee is up for sale, so this may be a move to trim some of the fat. It's a real shame that the whole interactive program will be shut down. I wonder if they plan on rolling those resources into their other digital platforms.
