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 - October 2013

My oldest daughter is 3 and is always asking to play games with us. I told her a while ago when I backed the Kickstarter for this game that it was for her. It arrived in the mail a couple weeks ago and she loves it, can't wait to get some more plays in with her!

Ok, I have been trying and trying to like this game... But I just don't think it is working out. It is a deduction game with little to no actual information and the info you do get is really difficult to keep track of. I find the beginning really dull and the end stressful and haphazard.

Played a solo game of this yesterday afternoon. I played as Tovak, with Norowas as my dummy player.

I was doing alright until the last round - I'd managed to stack a bunch of crystals of the same color (white) on Norowas without adding AA cards to match, but he still flipped nothing but white cards. It was a mad dash to the second city, and just one shot to kill it, going in blind with Underground Travel. It took a while to puzzle it out, but I managed to defeat it.

After dinner, some friends came over for games. One of them had found a deluxe copy of Sorry! and picked it up for nostalgia sake, and really wanted to play. So we started with a quick round of it. While I have some games around for nostalgia purposes, this isn't one I need.

This was our last game of the night. We weren't sure about this initially, because these friends normally aren't big on confrontational games. But knowing that backstabbing was part of the game going into it made them both more accepting of it. Perhaps a bit surprisingly, the wife ended up loving the game. Another convert. devil

It was a close game, with me just edging out one of the new players for the win. It came down to the final bid for host - the point for hosting + picking the final match-up is what determined the winner in this game.

I feel like this game is a better version of Dice Town. I got Dice Town to play with my non-gamer friends but it really has too many moving pieces for them. I feel like this game is what I was really looking for.

Everyone at the table was playing this game for the first time. Luckily we had the world's greatest rules explainer explaining it to us. It has a lot of moving parts but once you get into it mostly makes sense. Though I am not sure all the pieces fit together thematically...still I enjoyed it.

Ignore building your building at your own peril.

Darin and I finally wen to check out the new boardgame cafe in town. While waiting for more people to show up, we played a round of Dungeon Roll.

It was a fun little game, but I wouldn't want to play it with more than 2 players. I don't think it would be much fun if you're not actively rolling dice, given how long some dungeon delves can be.

After Dungeon Roll was a 3 player game of Libertalia, which all of us had played once before. It was fun, but I think I prefer it with more players.

We finally got Paradise Fallen: The Card Game to the table last night after getting it in the mail on Friday. It's a very good short, tactical game. I didn't do too well, making some pretty big mistakes that allowed my husband to pull ahead. He was able to explore the required 8 islands for a 2 player game while I only managed 5. The production quality is great, though I didn't care for stickering the discs. The only other thing we didn't like is the theme is almost non-existent and since we're not familiar with how to pronounce the names of the Hawaiian islands, we tripped over the names the entire game. But otherwise, the mechanics are solid and it plays in under 30 minutes so it'll be easier to get to the table so I can learn the strategies and get better at it.

I really enjoyed this game! It has some similar flavor to Last Will but I think I like it better. It had more going on and a bit more comedy actually. It was so fun making up stories for your family members. A few more plays are needed to know for sure how much I like it.
