The idea behind these lists is to post what you're currently playing, or just played. It's interesting to see who's playing what, to see if people are playing the same things, and to ask questions that might otherwise be relegated to a forum about a game with the benefit of the responses coming from someone who has it fresh on their mind.

Here's last month's list: What We're Playing - September 2013

First play of October!

Quick dice game over dinner. Simple, but it's a lot of fun building up your town.

I was sure Lisa was going to win (I got hit with raiders twice), but I wound up completing a 5 church set and getting just a few points more.

Yesterday was our 8th anniversary and we celebrated by going out to eat at Olive Garden, our traditional anniversary dinner, and then came home and played Mice and Mystics.

We started a campaign with chapter 1. I played Collin and Filch while my husband played Maginos and Nez. We did very well for the first two tiles, but then we started running into trouble. Lost Collin in the Kitchen Tunnels, but did fine with everyone else. We went to the kitchen and did very well there! Maginos really helped out and it only took 2 rolls to get the cook's attention. And we never triggered Brodie! But back in the tunnels, we lost Filch this time. We did fine in the next tunnel area, but out in the courtyard, we lost both Collin and Nez, which sucked because I had just gotten the Ring of Cat's Strength for Collin to get another die for combat and Nez finally got a piece of armor to give him another defense die. But thankfully Maginos and Filch finished off the stupid centipede and made it to the tree.

Everyone got one new ability, except Maginos who got 2 new abilities and another wand. Can't remember which one, but it's the same as one of his abilities, just doesn't take cheese to activate. My husband and I were both exhausted at the end, it was quite a challenge. I wanted to stay longer to search, but my husband was worried about surges. Most of the time, he was right to be worried.

I wanted to play again, but there wasn't enough time . I wrote all our stuff down so we know what to start with next time. Can't wait!

This was a great way to celebrate our anniversary.

One of our favorites that we hadn't played in a while. A destructive game in which the Hunters and Allie just barely beat the Shadows, with Charles a casualty along the way. The Witch just missed killing Gregor, the last Hunter, by one point. And earlier the Vampire only got to live another turn and do more damage because the Witch turned Fu-Ka into a holy spear armed frog at a very convenient time.

Got to play this game again (after last month first time), but this time with three players. The game is definitely better with three players.

My strategy was to loan as little as possible and be very efficient with my money. It got me last place, while my wife who spended money like she was shopping, won the game.

I've got the 1st scenario of Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game set up on my table right now. I am playing solo with the Ranger and so far she is doing okay. At this point, she has only encountered zombies and skeletons, and has only taken 1 hit. I think I chose well for her skill set, but time will tell whether she finds her way out of the dungeon.

We felt that Elder Sign was kind of amusing, but much too long for what it is (mostly mindless die-rolling). So I came up with an 'Elder Express' variant. Tried it Saturday. It worked very well, though Lisa was thinking I had made the doom track way too fast...right before we got our last few seals to win in the nick of time.

Still playing our co-op variant, and having fun with it. Occasionally needing to tweak a few cards to make them useful enough when playing co-op.

This one is a real bear to learn! We made it about halfway through a game before we needed a break and then never really got back to it before people had to leave. Actually not a bad way to learn a game since not knowing how the game works meant loads of early mistakes. I will be interested to see how it plays out the whole way through.

If anyone else has played this: Did your game feel like anything you built up (like favors, etc) were just constantly being torn down by the other players? I am wondering if that is just the general feel of the game or if that was just the cards we ended up with?

I was so happy to find this at our FLGS! I just love it. I don't care that there isn't much (any?) strategy. I just love the storytelling. We end up laughing so much while we play. Just pure and simple fun.

Fauna was a fun game, sort of in the style of Wits & Wagers. You have to place bets on the size and location of various animals and get points for correct or very close answers.

While it would be fun for a while, there could be problems once you've played it enough to start recognizing animals and remembering their stats.

I had played this once before and quite enjoyed it; the windrose mechanic is pretty interesting.

I enjoyed it again on this play, winning largely via controlling districts and shipping goods (I built a few cards that helped with shipping).

And no con is complete for Darin & I without at least one game of BSG.

We played this late Friday night, with bits from all expansions. I played as a cylon leader who had the option to win with both sides (2 human motives, 2 cylon motives). I almost threw in with the cylons, when they managed to get all the humans in the brig, but one of those cylon motives was tricky to complete. I ended up winning with the humans when Legendary Discovery (+1 distance) came up midway through the jump cycle at distance 7.



(The very first con Darin & I went to was right after the Exodus expansion was released. Everyone wanted to try it, so we played BSG 5 times that weekend. As regulars & volunteers now for that con, we're 'the BSG people' )

Moving on to Saturday now, I started the day with a treacherous game of Spartacus. It was a 4 player game, and only the teacher had played it before.

It was a lot of fun, and I won this one. Darin was playing something else and watched the second half of this game and decided he wanted it just from that.

It's not a game for people who don't like conflict. But if you like bribery and backstabbing, it's a great game. In general, if a rulebook uses the phrase 'non-binding promises', we'll probably be interested.

Saturday afternoon was tied up with Arkham Horror.

7 of us worked together to try to keep the forces of Yig at bay. Now he makes cultists harder to fight and each defeated cultist results in a token being placed on the doom track, accelerating his awakening. We ended up stuck with 4 cultists on the board, effectively dividing Arkham in two. Yig awoke after a couple investigators were lost in time and space, and it came down to the final battle.

The 2 investigators lost in time and space were devoured at the start of battle, and we lost one more before we defeated him.


I think the accelerated doom track (due to Yig's special abilities) was good for particular game, as the game could easily have gone on for several more hours with 7 players.
