17 folks this week, and two folks who stopped in to check it out, but didn't have time to play. A large shipment of games came in and is already getting cleared out (largely through Ian's store credit!)


This is a weekly list documenting the games played at a weekly Wednesday evening public game night in northern Kentucky. Join us any time, and let us know if you have any specific requests.

Upon walking by the table, I had assumed this was going to be called "Tiny Epic _____", but it turns out it isn't.

As I've said before, I have a thing for interesting mechanisms - whether a good game or not. We played with the same hands variant and the scoring variant.

I just don't know. I appreciate that this game, in constrast to so many recent card games we've played (Foppen, Maskmen, etc.), gives you a large range of options to play on your turn. But it seems to be missing something. We'll play again next week without the scoring variant and see how that goes.

Very disappointed that I missed out on this one after seeing photos of it from Faduitti's thing in France. Looking forward to trying it out soon.

Scott and I played this while others were setting up the next game. Looking forward to playing this again!

Think of it as 2-player non-cooperative Hanabi, where you're asking questions rather than giving clues.

6 Player with terrain.

I felt lucky to have 1 gem delivered by the end of the game.

We almost saw two robots pushed through three portals each in one turn!

It is astonishing that I've never managed to play this game. At least I got to watch people next to me play it tonight.

4-player Maskmen this week. While it is still interesting, not sure the decisions are there for long term potential.

Wow...advanced rules, but we got very lucky - very few ghosts in A and B, and the 1, 2, 3, and 4 were four of the first 5 gems we flipped over.
