#Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age is still my favoirte roll and write. It doesn't get talked about a lot because of its age, but it is a great game. I've put enough plays to run out of scoresheets and run through copiesl

I didn't. I just got this copy retail.

Catan was my gateway game and I still really enjoy playing it. It still has broad appeal as well. I ran a national qualifier pre-Covid and had 24 people show up who pretty much only played Settlers as their boardgame of choice. 

I also recently made a 3d printed set and painted it. Still a great game!

I played #PARKS this week with my wife. It was very enjoyable. It is beautful, and has some crunch. We were thinking about playing it as we visit different parks and having rangers from each park sign the cards. 

It is ok with two. i like it better with 3 or 4. The area majority is a more interesting fight at the higher player counts.

 

Nice review. 

I have this one. It is a keeper and I get it to the table fairly often.

Nice mini review. It is so great to see new people get into the hobby. Jaws of the Lion is a pretty ambitious early start!

Yes it comes with 40. I've painted four sets. 

#Mall Of Horror is by far my favorite Halloween themed game. 

I've played a few of his games including COB, COB the card game, Bruges, Aquasphere and Luna.

I like Trajan the best mostly because of the mancala action selection. I love it as a minigame and as an action selection mechanic. You can't always do exactly what you want, but if you manage it correctly, you can line up your turns in interesting ways. It is also useful for pushing or slowing game length. 

I also find it a bit more thematic. It is a point salad game, but trading, exploring and voting all have a very different feel. The unknown requirements at the end of each round is interesting as well.

Such a great game.

Fun video.

My top five right now is:

  1. #7 Wonders especially with #7 Wonders: Leaders
  2. #Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar
  3. #Trajan
  4. #Too Many Bones
  5. #Scythe

 

It is hard though. There are SO MANY great games.

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

New stuff from dealers are rarely discounted that much. Most of the buying I do is from players at flea markets. That is where I have found the most amazing deals.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to do that straight again. I'm not a teenager any more.

Conventions are great though. You get to see and play a bunch of games that you normally don't. Plus, most cons have great shopping opportunities. I have found so many great gaming items at simply unbeatable prices.

Way back when, I did almost 36 hours straight. I don't even try that now. Last time I really was able to focus and play I played about 28 hours in 3 days at PolyCon. I think we did around 40 hours in 4 days last BGG con we went to.

Yeah. Outside of a convention, that is about the most i've done.

I do a mix of:

  • How well I think the game is designed (as objectively as possible)
  • How much I like the game
  • How likely I am to want to play it again
  • How easy it is to get back to the table

I tend to have '5' as my base playable game. Anything below that I consider to be something that I pretty much won't play again. 5 is on the fence, but likely won't get played. Most of my 'good' games are in the 7 range. Above that I really like the game. I rate very few 10's.
