I have yet to play #Root as I don't think it would be my jam, but hearing about your great experience makes me want to at least give it a shot sometime!

Totally forgot about #The Quacks of Quedlinburg because I didn't log it! Fixed it now..can't let any of those 10 x 5 challenge plays slip my mind :P

Yeah I'm feeling similarly after this last game since the rest of you were all in the 200s. Gotta redeem myself this game haha

Haha that's awesome! Sounds like a hit!

I hear you! If we had a bigger place it would be a non issue for me as well. But sadly we have no attic or even a basement in our townhouse lol. Just a glorified apartment 😂

For sure, but again the space issue is holding me back a little. Working through our 10 x 5 challenge hopefully will allow me to free up some space to be comfortable releasing some without Sarah asking me to remove them from the kitchen table lol

Lack of space, mostly lol.

But also, one of the games I have on hold is an upcoming reprint of #Glass Road. Because it's stil listed as "preorder," I can't actually release it until it's off preorder status. GameNerdz doesn't list a date when it will be available. Last I saw, Capstone is looking at a July release schedule. I was kind of hoping it would get released sooner rather than later so I didn't have to spend any more money for free shipping lol.

That being said, they only give you 6 months to release your holds so I'll have to start releasing things - #Brass: Birmingham - around that time. Fortunately, the order dates for the rest of them are spread out enough so I might be able to swing it, should it actually release as scheduled.

Played just a few games this week.

#Fabled Fruit - Finally made our way through the full deck! Really have enjoyed our 20+ plays getting to this point, but it's time to try and sell or trade it away. It was on our 10 x 5 challenge, so Sarah has decided to pick another game to replace the remaining 2 plays as we only got to play this 3 times. She went with #7 Wonders Duel!

#Downforce - Got in another game on BGA with the usual suspects - and . Used the powers this time around which I totally didn't realize you were bidding for too. I don't know if this will ever make it into my collection, but GameNerdz certainly tried tempting me making it their deal of the day at some point this week.

#Spirit Island - Got tired of looking at the #Spirit Island: Branch & Claw expansion still in shrink (it's only been that way for a couple weeks lol), so I gave it a shot. I played with the Blitz scenario and got totally overwhelmed by the invaders pretty early on and couldn't do a whole lot to stop them. I enjoy playing this solo, but every time I come away feeling like I want to get it to the table with more people. If only Sarah liked it more...

#The Castles of Burgundy - Finished up a game with and on Yucata. One of my favorite games that I don't foresee myself ever not enjoying.

Totally starting to feel the need to get rid of some games here too. Even with the new shelves coming in, mine are full lol. Add to that the 7 games I have on hold at GameNerdz that have to come off of hold sooner or later and Kickstarters that will be here at some point..oof.

How'd they like it? I've played a few times on BGA and can't get enough lol

Played at Home.

With the Forgotten Folk Expansion. Played as Humans.

Definitely for the best..considering I currently have 7 games on hold at GameNerdz.. lol

Don't know why that would get you banned.. but you might be right about people just not wanting what you have lol 😜🤣

I think the only one I'd consider would be Alchemists but obviously depends on the price. In my experience buying/selling from BGG market, shipping costs are the biggest deterrent to getting sales.

I've done a few trades with BoardGameCo and had good experiences. I know they'll buy games from you too.

What are you trying to sell?

Just played this with #Spirit Island: Branch & Claw for the first time. I had previously only played the base without scenarios. All I can say is I need more practice lol. Oof

I was on this every hour. While the deals were great, I ultimately didn't jump on anything - mostly because the ones I would be interested in, I already had lol. Maybe I have too many games now?

The only games that almost got me were #Marvel Champions: The Card Game, #Whistle Mountain, and #The Game: Quick & Easy. With other Marvel games in my collection, I decided not to go for Champions. Whistle Mountain was the most likely had it still been available after the time I refreshed the page lol. And The Game I think Sarah would instantly hate after I explained the rules haha.

I see other people have suggested it already, but my first thought was #Marvel United. We picked it up for my father in law for Christmas this past year and had a blast playing it. It's got a pretty simple ruleset - essentially just play a card from your hand and do the action from your card and the card of the person who played before you.

Another very easy one that I've played is #5-Minute Marvel. That might be even more fun at his age because you're racing to defeat the bad guys in 5 minutes or less.
