The Twin Cities hotlist for November. I figured I'd post this to lighten the load a bit on Kenny. Please post the games that are getting a lot of brain space at the moment.

Here's Kenny first geeklist: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/162911/first-monthly-minne...

Second month in a row. I played this for the first time and am looking forward to future plays. Nice drafting, hand-management game with a bit of interaction.

I don't know that I've ever been so excited about a game. Huzzah rocket science.

Regularly played at Ameritrash mondays. Pure chaos. Grayce has fallen hard for this one.

Elegant area control by one of my favorite designers. Played this one for the first time recently and will probably pick it up for our collection

I love me some worker placement and this one provides a few unique twists. Thanks to Matt B. for teaching.

You would think after over 250 plays I would get sick of this one, but it hasn't happened yet.

Been playing the heck out of this one lately. I was really worried that there wouldn't be space for this AND Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game in my collection, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

Unquestionably swingy, but pretty much every setup is winnable. We've been randomizing heroes and villains lately for more of a challenge.

Yeah it's a stupid Steve Jackson game, but it's my son's favorite at the moment and it plays fast. Don't judge me!

Not sure how "hot" this game really is, but I am gearing up for some Dreadball sessions. If you like football, rugby, and science fiction, I think you'll like this game. Kind of like BloodBowl, but faster and more chaotic, and a lot more scoring. The standard game is a two player game. But now with Season Three out, the Ultimate Pitch can play 3-6 players! See the difference below:



My first solo learning game in action:



The big bad multi-hex meanies that come with Season Three:

Getting a lot of love at BGG.con. I'm on the lookout for an introductory worker placement game for proselytistic purposes. Grayce and I are also easily swayed by overproduction.

I'm a big fan of Bauza's designs and this one looks particularly fun with its monster theme and dexterity mechanics. Would love to try this one with my nephew.

Its been a long time since I have had a chance to get an OCS game on the table against an opponent (ie pre 2000). We will have had three sessions of Tunisia this month once November is complete.

OCS is really a great combat system.

This is getting played at Level Up Games on Wednesdays quite often. If anyone wants to join us you're welcome. We'd love to get enough people together to have a tournament (probably on a weekend).

I just got this along with 1775, both games I'll be running at Con of the North. Freedom is a Co-op game where you are trying to free slaves and get them to Canada. It's supposed to be really difficult, so I can't wait to learn it.

I finally got this from the Kickstarter. It was a long hard road to the finish line, but it was worth the wait. It's a beauty. Nice cards, great map, low counter density. Nik and I have been playing a PBF game on the LW's BGG page: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1065150/lincolns-war-kic...







I love that this game is a wargame on a strategic level with interesting hand management play, a little fog of war, diceless combat, and the fact you have to deal with the political side to things, along with seditious elements from your own side you have to deal with in your own hand of cards. You feel like you are Lincoln or Davis running your country.
