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 - December 2013

I once again chose to work on a holiday (2.5 time is just too good to pass up!), and decided to play this rather than Ogre for a change of pace.

I played the Daqan Lords, tryring to fulfil their feudal obligations by preventing the Apocolypse! It was a tense, close game, but in the end, my own people did me in with rioting. shake

I have yet to beat this scenario, but I'll likely try again soon. Maybe as the Dunwar Dwarves, as I've yet to play with the expansion.

Happy New Year, all!

And a few games of Hanabi. We played the 'Grand Finale' variant where you try to complete a perfect set. Took us two tries. This is a favorite game of ours.

Lisa had gotten me the Von Drakk Manor expansion for Christmas, and I was eager to play it. Love the new minis and gameplay elements, for the most part. They're all cool, especially the witches that turn heroes into toads (who are rescued with a kiss ). Still find the gameplay a bit off; just drags and gets too 'grindy'. Still working on tweaks for that.

I wanted to play a quick last game over dinner, and went to this, which we've been playing a lot as sort of a filler. Kind of mindless but fun.

Picked this up from CSI on our Christmas order since they had it for under $20. Got our first play in yesterday, a two player game with myself and my wife. I managed to eek out a win 35-33(not sure if those scores are horrible or not), but what bothers me is that I managed to do that without really doing anything spectacular, all I tried to do was keep my energy and ecology as close to even as possible and get rid of pollution as I had the chance. I didn't make nearly as much money as my wife did in the game but I managed to have just enough prosperity points on my board to pull out the win. Anxious to try again.

We started off the New Year with Agricola, which is on our 10x10 challenge list. We played with Agricola: Gamers' Deck, Agricola X-Deck and Agricola: The Legen*dairy Forest-Deck. This was an amazingly fun game! Agricola has always been a challenge for me, one that I've enjoyed, but one that has frustrated me because once you fall behind, there doesn't seem to be a way to catch up. But the randomness of the X-Deck and Forest Deck shook things up, in a very good way. In the beginning, my husband got quickly ahead, especially with some good cards from the Forest Deck. But one of the Forest cards stole all 9 wood he had just got, though it did give him more grain & veggies on his fields. But it slowed him down. Then I got the Transmogrifier card from the X-Deck and used it very well because I had managed to get a third family member, while my husband had not. So several times I changed resources on the board into other resources and took them since I had 2 actions in a row. But the best move was when I changed the 12 wood I had in my own supply to 12 cows! Best Agricola moment ever! Oh, and we greatly enjoyed the humor of the Gamer's Deck. I definitely look forward to trying all these decks again. While I'm not sure we'll always use the X-Deck and Forest Deck, it was a great way to ease the tension and frustration I usually feel when playing the game. Oh, and I won 47 to my husband's 41.

Well, we got our first 10x10 game in so far. I love the simplicity and subtle strategy in Kingdom Builder and I think each time I like it a little more, unless I have to remind my opponents that it is there turn repeatedly, which wasn't that bad this time, but hey, it's gotta be hard for a 9 year old on Christmas break to pay attention to a game with their father, haha.

Last night we played Guildhall mixed with Guildhall: Job Faire. We randomly chose 6 from the mix and ended up with Assassin, Historian, Dancer, Peddler, Tax Collector, Scholar. This was quite an interesting mix of cards. Many turns saw the same progression of cards played - Dancer then Peddler then Assassin. Having two cards that give extra actions sped up the game, but the Assassins countered it by slowing down the game. My husband and I went back and forth frequently stealing the others cards with the Peddler and then killing off whatever was given with the Assassin. Our scores were pretty close for most of the game until I managed to complete 3 stacks in one turn, which I have never done before. I used the Dancer to get more cards then the Peddler to steal cards I needed and gave ones I didn't need. Then I used the Historian to loot the discard and followed it up with an Assassin. This allowed me to complete the Dancer, Historian and Assassin stacks. I already had one stack from the turn before. On my husband's turn, the best he could do was create 2 stacks and earn 2 VPs with the Tax Collector. Then on my turn, I used all my stacks to go from 11 to 25. My husbanded ended with 12 and poised to win, but I beat him to the punch. Over all, a good game and one that taught me how to use the Peddler, whom I had always had trouble with before. But now I wonder how our next game will go as we'll play with the 6 unused cards and none of them give extra actions...

Well, we got a play in of Legendary this morning, first time in awhile actually. I honestly don't know that we've played it yet since we picked up the Dark City expansion when it came out so it's been on my "possible trade" stack.

Today may have saved it a bit, Gabby and I had a fun time playing, despite me creating the Villain deck incorrectly and really causing us to lose relatively quickly(I forgot the henchmen AND the Master Strike cards).

(The 1/2 point disappointed him - he wanted his Pyramids to break the tie. )

After CoC was a 2 player game of Tash-Kalar while waiting for Darin to come home from work (I had a couple extra days off).

I introduced this to a friend who also happens to be a Magic player/judge. As I suspected, he quite liked it.

Some friends of ours really wanted to try this game, and I really enjoy playing it, so they came over for a game last night.

It was a pretty close game, with one of the new players edging me out for the win by 2 points.

We also had a few pets run away/mutate into another dimension/die of suffering. I was a bit amused that two of the cutest pets - Snakitty and Cthulie - both died from suffering, poor guys.

Yesterday, we pulled out Mice and Mystics to continue our campaign to Chapter 2. First off, we now know that we played it completely wrong. We didn't have Lily and the roaches on her tile fighting from the beginning. We did add roaches as we progressed through the tiles, but didn't activate them until we got to that tile. On top of that, we moved the roaches to make room for the centipede and rats. This all pretty much spelled our doom as we couldn't get to Lily in time since all the minions were at the top of the initiative track. So we're going to try this one again and play it correctly (hopefully). Not sure if we'll stick with Maginos, Nez and Collin, but we'll see. I wish things were clearer in the books, but now I know that whenever we have questions, we'll stop the game and check BGG for the answers. That way we won't waste our time playing it wrong.

Last night was pretty casual. We went to a friend's place for dinner, then we played a card game - Shanghai, also known as Frustration. I'm pretty sure it's one of those games that has several thousand variations out there.

It was a lot of fun, and not just because I won.

Farmageddon continues to be a fun filler game for us. We didn't have much time last night, but wanted to play a game before I went to bed. So it was between this, Villagers & Villains and Paradise Fallen: The Card Game and I felt like this one. My husband pulled ahead quickly in the beginning with the Frankencrop that can be harvested on the turn its planted and he played 2 bumper crops on it. I tried for some big points with the 15 point Squashes, but my husband kept killing them off. A few more turns and he was still harvesting medium-sized crops. But then he got too greedy and planted 3 crops on his turn right after I had draw a Dustbowl so I was able to kill off all his crops on my turn. Still, I didn't think I was ahead as the game progressed as his pile of crops were bigger, but I managed it by a slim margin winning 77 to his 75 points. The end was a bit anti-climatic though as neither of us were able to add points on the last round, but that's okay. Sometimes games go that way. I've said it before, but I'll say it again - I can't wait for more Frankencrops!

Amy and I broke this out over the weekend, and finished it this morning. Not including a lengthy interruption for a phone call from an old friend, this took us about four hours to see to completion. A big part of that was because Amy had never played before, and I hadn't played in a long while, which made both of us overly cautious about moving on to higher level encounters.

Amy was playing Silhouette and I was playing Sir Valadir. She lead for most of the game with better equipment, stats, and followers, right up until the very end. She was probably one turn away from getting her third and final Dragon Rune when I managed to find and defeat Margath! It was a last minute win for me as the game long underdog.

I'm happy to say it appears that she likes this one as well! I'm really glad that turned out to be the case, as I have quite a few of the expansions. Though no where close to all of them. I think this might be one of the most expanded games, ever.
