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.

Solo Gamers are NOT lonely!
Together We Game Alone (1 Player Guild)
August was very low in the board game plays. I've really been working on trying to beat some of my video games that are sitting there ready to be finished. So far this month I only completed Mass Effect 3 because I got yet again distracted by Star Wars: The Old Republic and Battlefield 3. I guess somewhat by Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer too. So this month, my board games had a break. I missed them. Maybe in September things will get back to normal.
Well, I did play quite a bit on if that counts. I don't log those games on BGG though. On Yucata I finally got around to playing Vikings. I love it. Too bad the physical copy is so hard to find or expensive. cry

My wife and I thrifted this and actually got around to playing it fairly soon after. (most of our thrifted games sit there for a bit before we get around to them) She really liked it and won. We had played the 1st case and I knew the Killer and the Weapon, but just could not figure out the motive.

Expansions Used: Factions (x1), Faction Pack #1 (x1)
Includes Upgrade Kit
I can't believe it's been over a year since I've played this. This is one I would like to get to the table more but yet again, I have many games that I seem to be the only one that wants to play them. (Thus my thing with writing solo variants...) I had got the Factions kickstarter in the mail last month (that I forgot I had kickstarted) so I was looking forward to trying it. Factions is neat, but doesn't add much to the game in my opinion (could be a good thing or bad thing). Of course I've only played once. (Do I use parenthesis too much?)

I introduced Kyle to this game. I won every time and within a few turns and after the 3rd game, he was still determined to keep going. He's not good at the abstract thing but wants to improve. But we were running low on time and we wanted to get a Carcassonne H&G game in.

Taught my Dad this game. He seemed to like it. We walked away 1 and 1.

Found out playing for 40 points takes too long... with 3-players we just made it through the deck once. How the heck do you get to "Night"?

I had be wanting to try this one for a while. My Dad was visiting so I took the opportunity to try it out and he went for it. We both liked it. We would have played more but he wanted to get in a game of Battleship while we had some time.
