I've been sick for two days now, and the only thing I've done besides sleeping, is browsing BGG. I wish we had some sort of a portable table or something, to play games whilst being too sick to get up. I have this big tray we've used for some card games, but you couldn't play anything with a board on it.
Well, since I've had a lot of free time, I've watch a ton of videos of games. I think I've watched the WatchItPlayed series of Summoner Wars twice now. We have been playing that quite a lot lately, and I just have to say, it has become one of my favorites.
Also, been looking into Mice and Mystics. Looks really beautiful, but I don't really have a full picture of the gameplay yet. Coincidentally, last time we had a gamenight, on Monday, we played Dungeon Run, by the same company. BTW, I won.
I promised my nieces that we would have a gameday, on Saturday. Hoping I feel well enough. My fiancé wants to try Dungeon Run with them. They are 13 and 16 years old, so I guess they should be able to handle backstabbing. I was also thinking Shadows over Camelot. Last time we played Smallworld with Small World: Realms and that was a hoot. I try to bring games that need some understanding of English, because it's really good for them. They've learned quite a lot through gaming, which has been a pleasure to watch.
Almost forgot, I've been thinking about getting my sister-in-law Ghost Blitz. As some of you know, she's mentally a bit disabled, and I try to encourage her to develope her skills through gaming. I thought it might be a good game for her to play by herself and with her friends. Last time, I bought her My First Carcassonne, wich was a huge success. I was sort of worried about the title having the word kids, because she is 33 years old, albeit being more of a 7 years old mentally. Sometimes she reacts very aggressively if she feels she's been treated as a child. But, she understood that the game was about the kids IN Carcassonne, thanks to the illustrations on the tiles.
Ghost Blitz won the family game of the year here in Finland so I thought I could explain to her it's not a childrens game, even though the cover is a cartoonish one.
