14 gamers this week for Knizia Wednesday! We declared this Knizia Wednesday mostly in jest, as, in general, I dislike Herr Knizia's games. Next week, we've got basically nothing on tap. I'll check with the store to see if they'll be closed due to GenCon.


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.

More about Illuminaudi NKY/Two Headed Games here, and here:

Japanese Circus Flohcati. It was great! There may be some issues upon repeated plays that I'm not thinking about, as I'm pretty smitten with it, but I really enjoyed this.

Wow...that was surprisingly difficult! Excited to play again now that we know the values of things a little better, but I wouldn't have expected it to be so hard to score a single set (despite PK's warning!)

Oddly similar to Flohcati - it's like you just swap out push-your-luck for an auction and you're done.

Wow...I did not do well in this game. A surprisingly unforgiving game. I know what I didn't do well with (scoring points), but I'm not sure what I could've done to better manage my hand.

Quandary! I was very pleased with this. A little bit of a Hab & Gut variant, with haltingly tough decisions. Not crazy about the theme or the spiral board; will probably look into Flinke Pinke or Botswana.

Hey! More Knizia! I was very pleased with this one. It cleverly disguises its Knizia-ness. Reminiscent of Camel Up, but with more sensible betting (as odd as that sounds, since you're placing your bets before each race starts).

Hey! Ok, we squeezed in one more, and didn't have time to get High Society in or any of the other titles folks brought. This was very pleasant. I like the idea of Tsuro, but I'm 1 for 2 at actually enjoying it. This is better, to me, mostly because it feels lighter - and that helps to counteract the randomness of tile draws and being accidentally flung into some path to Xanadu built earlier in the game.
