I'm devoting Dice Tower Con 2013 to new game experiences. I'm way behind on playing several games, and I definitely want to make sure every game opportunity is a game that I've never played before.

Fantastic game! I missed out on this Kickstarter when I picked up Zpocalypse instead. This game an Last Night on Earth are now my two favorite Zombie games out there.

As a quick game to play while waiting for a couple players in our Zombicide game to return, the other three of us played this game. Not bad for such a simple little game.

I'm not sure we ended up playing this one right. There were three of us, and while there were a couple instances where we could have lost, I never felt the game was really as hard as most people say it is. We were on the default difficulty, and caught a couple Budha mistakes part way through the game. But even so, it seemed somewhat manageable.

I think I might have played the iOS version of this before. But the physical version was something I always wanted to try. It was a ton of fun, IMO. One of my favorite two player games, for sure. Up there with Earth Reborn and Mr Jack on my list.

We played this with the awesome level 9000 expansion. I played the Aliens and Robots, and thought they made a pretty good combo. A lot of the art and simplicity of the game reminded me of King of Tokyo.

Again, I've played the iOS version, but it's pretty different than the physical version. I was definitely looking forward to this game. What was cool was that one of the designers, Richard Launius stopped by to teach us how to play. He was very nice, and was talking to us about the expansion.

I really enjoyed the game. But there is a bit of complexity to the game.

I'm not sure how I feel about this game. I definitely wanted to play this game at some point. But ultimately to me, it felt like a slightly more complicated version of Stone Age. Still, there were some definite pluses to the game.

We started this game, and it had both of the expansions with it. Luckily we had someone offer to play and teach us. Had she not wandered by, it would've been a difficult learning curve. We ended up losing by running out of crystals with one general to go. It was a lot of fun, even though you could definitely see the Pandemic similarities.

After a day mostly spent learning medium weight games, it was nice to end the day with something quite a bit lighter. There were some terrible typos in the manual, and it a bit to understand the climate wheel. But for the most part, it was actually pretty fun.

After finishing Evo, we got the chance to this game of bluffing and smuggling. As a notoriously bad liar, I of course came in last. But it was still a lot of fun, and certainly a unique experience.

Friday is a day I knew I wouldn't get much time to play games. Unfortunately, I had to work. I didn't arrive until 8, and finally got this game started at about 9. It seemed a lot more complicated than it actually was. It was a really simple, and yet fun set of mechanics. A lot of the board setup reminds me of Tobago. I also really like how every game could be completely different based on the goals and tiles selected for the game.

I ended up playing this game purely based on the fact that they were looking for a fifth player. It's not the type of game I would normally pick, but I hadn't played it, so I took the opportunity to try it anyway. I had fun, once I figured out what was going on.

First game of the night Saturday. A nice simple dexterity game to start the nice off with. I wasn't a fan of the "if you get 3 perfect recipes, you win" rule. But otherwise, the game was ok.

I really enjoyed this game, even though I feel that I didn't get to fully experience my hero. The game turned out to be a really easy win for the heroes against Omnitron.

The last game of the con for me came down to a choice between this and Legendary. We decided on this game, and it was definitely a lot of fun. It took a while to figure everything out, but once it started clicking, I really started to see the strategy that you could use. It's a simple enough game once you get through the rules. Hopefully we played everything right.
