Billy and I are doing a new challenge for 2015: 2015 Gaming Challenge: 2 x 2 x 12 Get 'Em On The Table! Challenge

Each month we'll be choosing two games for the challenge. He would like to focus on games we have that are still in shrink, and I'd like to focus on both new games as well as ones we haven't played in a while. We'll add the games below so everyone knows which games we're doing.

Feel free to join in as well. The more the merrier!

Nikki's January February March! Pick.
Nikki got this (and two other games) from her Secret Santa, so we're going to make sure it gets played and soon!

2015-03-01 - Three-player game
2015-03-30 - Two-player game

Unfortunately, this turned out to not be a great fit for Nikki and I. We love the components, but the gameplay didn't click for either of us. In many ways it reminded me of a Magic: The Gathering-style with three different ways of attacking. I would be willing to play it once more in a four-player setup, just in case that's where it shines, but we'll probably just try to adapt the game components into a game we actually want to play.

Nikki's Substitute January Pick.
We demoed this at BGG.CON 2014 and it reminded Nikki of Ratchet & Clank, which she is very fond of. We had some scheduling problems getting Game of Thrones to the table, and Nikki's son wants to play this, so we're moving GOT to February and breaking this out.

2015-01-19
2015-01-20

We started played a learning game Monday evening at around 9 PM with Nikki's son, but had to stop mid-way through since it was a school night.

We played a full game Tuesday night, and I was pleased to see the game doesn't play as light & fluffy as I first feared. The big lesson I took away from this game is that it is very important to get your third property ASAP, instead of trying to upgrade one of your two starting properties.

DONE!

Billy's February Pick.
Purchased BGG.CON 2013, and still in shrink?! It ends now!

2015-02-04 - 2 Player game with Nikki to sort out the rules. I definitely want to see how the game play changes with more players. We each got really close to building all the buildings, as we were each acquiring a lot of crystals. Also, some of the actions were never chosen, since we rarely had to compromise on what we wanted.

2015-02-05 - 5 Player game at game night. I forgot to mention the rule about discarding duplicate cards. I don't think it affected the outcome in this case, as one player had a tremendous lead. 5 player is definitely tighter. We were averaging 0 to 1 buildings a turn, instead of 2 to 3. With 5 players, the ability to move after all placement is complete is a lot more important if you are in last place.

DONE!

Billy's March Pick.
Purchased online after a good experience at BGG.CON 2015. It was still in shrink when it arrived, so technically it counts!

2015-03-03 - 3 players + 2 Civbots
2015-03-21 - 2 players + 4 Civbots
2015-03-21 - 4 players + 2 Civbots
2015-03-25 - 4 playesr + 0 Civbots

I like this game a lot, but I'm not sure if I'm saying that just because I win it more often than not. I love the abstracted military: how you don't build up lots of army units and smash them against other army units with some sort of luck-based mechanism to determine who wins.

Billy's April Pick.

I picked this game up at BGG.CON 2012 after I fell in love with the theme and complexity, and then it has sat on my shelf untouched since. To celebrate Earth Day, we pulled out games concerned with too much carbon!

2015-04-06 3 Players
2015-04-24 3 Players

I still enjoyed it, and was very happy to play such a complex game with the same group of people both times, so we were learning it at the same rate.

Nikki's April Pick

We got this game at BGG.CON 2015, and it seemed like a great pick for Earth Day as it also focuses on the pull between needing power and not wanting to pollute too much.

2015-04-02 3 players
2015-04-13 3 players

This was an interesting tile-placement game. Each tile you get adjusts one of five stats. Having power or ecology too low will hurt you in the short term, but not having enough investment, research, or prosperity will hurt you in the long run. Very interesting choices to be made, but since some tiles feel better than others, the luck of the draw is definitely present.

Billy's May Pick

I think I picked this up during the BGG.CON 2012 closing ceremonies, and after teaching it to my family it has not gotten any play. Nikki wanted to do something flower themed for May, and here we are!

We were running against the clock this month and needed a fast, 2-person game to finish us up. I've had Oshi for years, but haven't touched it in way more than 2. Nikki won both of these, 7 to 5 and then 8 to 6.

I picked up Smash Up and most of the expansions in the charity auction at BGG.CON 2014, and then this huge box sat on the shelf, taunting me. Thanks to Shawn for encouraging us to get it on the table!

Our first game I played Cultists and Elder Gods (or something like that), and it turns out that's a bad way to learn the game. I slowed us down a lot, first needing to read all the cards, and then doing a lot of card bouncing.

We first played a half-game Sunday night after BGG.CON 2014, and I picked it up at MALCon 2015. I love the care and attention that went into making this game. I want to play it many times with the same group of people so that it's not always someone's learning game!

Nikki and I each have a copy of this sitting on our shelves. Her copy is from the Kickstarter, I purchased mine commercially. We haven't played them in years, so of course we played our first this month using my sister's copy during our recent trip to Michigan. At least we won't have a problem following up with a second play.

We picked this up at BGG.CON 2015, and since we really enjoy Eminent Domain I figured it would be a good purchase for us. Unfortunately, the rule book assumes you have read and are familiar with all of the cards in the game (but does not state this assumption anywhere), and if you aren't it is a very frustrating game to try and figure out. I'd recommend getting someone who already knows how to play this to teach it to you, or at the least review every card before trying to play. I'd like to come back to this game in a few months, after I've had a chance to forget our first few bad experiences with it. I think there's a good game somewhere in here, but I'm too close to the initial frustration to really be objective.

I first noticed this during the Kickstarter, and then got a copy at BGG.CON 2015. I like Dominion, and I figured this would be a fun variation on the deck building theme. After playing it several times I still like it, but I think I'd like some drafting-based mechanism for the starting decks. We end up seeing a lot of "lint", "lints" "slit", etc. early on. Repetitive plays are a lot more noticeable when you're spelling words.

I really enjoyed Vital Larcerda's CO2 and Kanban, and after playing The Gallerist once at BGG.CON 2015 I knew this was a safe purchase for me. I tend to enjoy Vital's multi-layered systems, and have really enjoyed our plays so far.

I received several AGE microgames from the BGG.CON 2014 charity auction AEG bundle, but so far we have only played Love Letter. I have wanted to break out another one and see what else there is in the micro-game arena, and this was a great opportunity!

We either played this 5 times as individual games, or once as a campaign game, depending on how you count it, but we definitely felt like we understood what was going on, and wanted to play Kanban, so we ended it after 5 plays. I think this is different enough from Love Letter that I'm glad I have them both. I like that discarded cards might still have a purpose.
