d10-1 Scythe: The Rise of Fenris campaign continues! The new content is nice, but an excuse to play lots of Scythe is even better!

d10-2 We played Keyflower with all the expansions! I liked what Merchants had to offer and definitely want to play with it again. I just wish setup wasn't such a bear!

d10-3 Our initial play of Merlin at DiceTowerCon was very pleasant, and our first play at home followed suit! Can't wait to try the expansion!

d10-4 My Terra Mystica experience is quite limited, but about halfway through a game of Gaia Project, those familiar engine/tech tree building experiences came flooding back! This one definitely requires more plays to appreciate it. I should also probably be less tired so I can remember all the rules. Hmm, not sure how to make a Gaia project, so I'll just not do that...

    d10-1 Can't Stop Express and BANG! The Dice Game were hits at a week-long wedding event we attended. It's always a great feeling when you see people that you taught introducing and teaching a game to even more people. That's a big win with a minimal suitcase footprint!

    d10-2 Why I really enjoyed my first play of Isle of Skye: Journeyman, I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew when I attempted to teach the game to players who had never played the base game.

    d10-1 T.I.M.E Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons was our third foray into the world of Time Stories. I really enjoyed how varied the different classes were, with many paths to victory, although
    Spoiler (click to reveal)
    it would definitely help to have everyone be the same class instead of diversifying. Furthermore, magic classes are invaluable at the end of the game.


    d10-2 I had an epic game of Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game where I got dealt both Cylon cards!

    d10-3 My first game of Wildcatters was certainly a brain burner!

    d10-1 Tea and Trade definitely adds to the (already large) decision space for Fields of Arle. With so many options of things to do, it's impossible to do everything, yet I consistently try to...

    d10-2 Merlin was surprisingly enjoyable. I was a bit worried that the dice limitations would restrict the game, but overall it was a lot of fun to play. That may change over lots of plays, but hopefully the extra Arthur die in the expansion will help players feel more in control of their fate. We managed to grab a copy of the game (there was only one) riiiight before we left the con, and I'm glad we got a chance to play it!

    d10-3 I was very excited to play Nusfjord, and managed to squeeze a 5 player and a 2 player game at the con. I enjoyed the minimalist nature of the game, and the varied building setup. The "no round cleanup phase" aspect was also nice, although setup time was non-trivial. I wasn't a huge fan of the shares with two players, but Uwe definitely has my interest piqued for Reykholt.

    d10-4 Not only was this the first Pandemic Survival tournament that my wife and I got to participate in, we managed to get first place!!!!!

    d10-5 Ah Indian Summer. I really enjoyed the mechanism with the holes in the pieces. I really enjoyed the special animal overlays. I really enjoyed the beautiful fall colors. I did not enjoy stealing pieces from other players. I did not enjoy the obvious advantage to going last in the turn order. I did not enjoy the ridiculously large box size. Simultaneously very exciting and very disappointing.

    d10-6 Rajas of the Ganges was having a flash sale, and I'm glad I picked this one up. I refreshing and enjoyable dice/worker placement game! I initially thought that the money / VP track was a gimmick, but there's definitely advantages to rushing down the river, up the score track, or up the money track instead of being completely balanced.

    d10-1 Ah Trickerion, how i missed thee! This is a game that truly deserves more plays. I really want to dig into the dark alley cards early on every time, but there are always so many other things to do!!

    d10-2 Sentient takes some simple math and turns it into a fun puzzle of a game with an area control aspect too. I'm notoriously bad at area control, but I do love puzzles!

    d10-3 Kokoro is deceptively difficult to play well, which subsequently makes it a fun game to play, and definitely a challenge. I'm not sure it's better than Connections, but I like how it easily plays a ton (8) of people.

    d10-1 Altiplano is great! I wish it were possible to do turns a little more simultaneously to make the game faster though.

    d10-2 Tybor der Baumeister isn't revolutionary but it's a fun and fast drafting game in a small package.

    d10-3 Similarly, Kashgar is just a deck builder with a twist, but I found it very enjoyable!

    d10-4 BSG with tons of modules was fun, although a bit overwhelming. Some of the modules simply added complexity that didn't add to the experience.

    d10-1 Macao is brilliant, I love the main mechanism!

    d10-2 I did particularly well in Terraforming Mars, everything seemed to be working well and I was always flush with cash.

    d10-3 Even though we didn't have the most exciting airship combination, I enjoyed playing with the Scythe Airships and look forward to trying a different set up.

    d10-4 If Belfort didn't take so long to play, I would want to play it far more often

    d10-1 Good news, Powerships is just as good (if not better) than Powerboats!

    d10-2 Vikings is excellent. Vikings, where have you been all my life?

    d10-3 Started the next chapter of Oh My Goods! Looking forward to getting more interesting assistants.

    d10-4 I really should play Viceroy more often, it definitely rewards more than one play.

    d10-5 Pillars of the Earth is now on my reading list.

    d10-1 At Your Orders! is a nice addition to The Grizzled. Unfortunately we got a lot of the hard cards up front and lost miserably. Will have to try this one again with more people.

    d10-2 Tragic Events really captures the acceleration feel with it's use of the fire deck. The events were kindof odd, but they kept it interesting. In the end we lost by one structural damage after executing three fire cards in a row one turn before winnning! It didn't help that an event card had a civilian wander back into the house. I'm digging it though.

    d10-3 Appraently I like programming games (that aren't Robo Rally), because I really enjoyed Lords of Xidit. The simple programming options coupled with Knizia-like scoring and gorgeous art made this one a win.
