BGWS 054 - Video exploration of Cosmic Encounter
I'm happy to say that Fantasy Flight has done a good job with the new release of Cosmic Encounter. Episode 54 of Board Games with Scott is all about it.

You can get the video or just the audio at

or watch the video through Vimeo below (it's squished at this time, due to how Vimeo is being integrated into this site - see it unsquished at the URL above):



Long Live the Virus!

I'm sorry, Scott, but the Virus must die in any game I'm playing. Unless I'm the Virus.

I actually am a fan of Humans and the Grudge. Join me, or I'll hurt you!

In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Scott,

The thing that has stopped me from buying FFG's version of CE is that the most common group for game playing at my house is 3 people. From other threads, the 3-player game of CE isn't really talked about in glowing terms.

In your video, however, you show all the examples being with 3 players. Is this just to simplify the video, or do you think that CE works with 3 players? From the examples you gave in the video, it seems like it would still be pretty fun even with 3.

What do YOU think about the 3 player game? Still worth picking this up when I get the chance?

Thanks,

Dave

It is just to simplify the video - 3 is what I could fit and still let you see some of the detail on the cards.

The 3-player game is not as strong, but is certainly playable. 4-5 is much better.
