Shacky22's Gaming

After following Bobby Warren's (Bobby4th) blog of his game recaps, I liked it enough to want to start my own blog of the same. I started recording plays in 2011 so I started the blog there and caught up. If you're not following my blog and you're wondering why your subscription brought you here, it's probably because I listed a game you subscribe to. Just click the subscribe button to the side and select "block" and you won't see my posts again. This blog is mostly for my tracking purpose but also for those that like information like this.

Mike brought this over. He's been wanting to play for a while but fighting games aren't my thing really. But I wound up actually having fun. I like it more than Yomi cause there's less of a luck factor, but maybe I'll play it again later.

Mike had brought it over and I fell in love with it after the first play. I was unable to come up with the money to get it as it was selling out so he offered to buy me a copy and I just pay him back when I could. So awesome of him to do that. After a few plays this became my #2 game, knocking Thunderstone Advance to #3.

Keep this in my bag that I take to work (along with Space Hulk: Death Angel) with me in case I get bored.

Got this thanks to some trades. 2010 edition. I really like it, but it's not a top 10 for me. Unfortunately I seem to be the only one that likes it with my gaming buddies. (1 is mostly a wargamer, the other more into co-ops and euros) I already started developing some solo rules for it that seem to work out better than just randomizing.

Expansions Used: Style is the Goal x1
Just got Style is the Goal this month. Not quite sure how I feel about it but so far I like it. But I can see myself playing with just the base game at times too.

If I ever want my wife to join me in a board game, this gets a yes from her 99% of the time.

Mike's been wanting to play this one for a while so I gave in to see what the deal is with the #1 game here on BGG. I played as the Soviet, and I have to say, this game isn't my thing. Area control wargames just don't seem to do it for me. I'd much prefer to play Combat Commander or Memoir '44 over this. However, I can't say I won't ever play again, cause it was kinda neat.
