We got some time with Nick and Dominic at North Star Games. Marcus and I had an amazing time learning this beautiful and well planned game. One of our highlights of the con.

Kickstarter backed!

Marcus and I played again later too.

We got to play this with the folks of Stronghold Games and a few others. Being fans of Shadows over Camelot this was an instant win for us. Purchase number 1 during the show.

Marcus grabbed this one an a random run through the library. Glad he did as it was a fast play through that wasn't too complicated. A good relaxing game.

Keeping with the potion crafting theme and seeing others play, we tried Alchemists. Much more complex and a little hard to follow for us, even with some great teachers showing up.

This was another Marcus pick for a quick hit. Seemed like it would have a lot more depth with more than 2 players. Also, we found a few rules questions. Another play through would have been nice. Over all, not a bad game.

We had a chance to sit with Chris from Asmadi games and play one of his. It took a minute to get the flow down, but it went very smooth after that. You have to pay attention or you are out quickly. Nice travel size game that can easily bring players of all ages to the table.

Another win against Azatoth. This time in Elder Sign, the wife's favorite game over all.

This was one of the top on my want to play list. Marcus and I played alone. Should have had at least one more player. I enjoyed it but I don't think Marcus was quite in the mood after some of the high pace high action games we had played earlier. He was also anxious to start our D&D Session. I want to give this one another chance.

We signed this one out to play in the room one night. We were all tired, so it took longer to setup and play than it should have. However, Marcus and I really like the concept and play through. The quality was really good as well.

We ended our con experience getting a play test of Mottainai, again with Chris at Asmadi games. Already ordered on Kickstarter. This was a beautiful game with great potential. For the small amount of cards I can see a great depth and replay value here.

We sat down to play and had a great gentleman, Mike if I recall, sit and play with us. "I played the. First edition in the 1980's," he stated. Well, it didn't matter if he had any previous experience. 8 editions changes things! Still, it was. A blast with a lot of, "oh crap." Moments followed by laughter.

Another instant purchase for us was Diamonds. It is a play on spades that introduces the concept of scoring physical diamonds over tricks. Great game play. We taught my in-laws how to play within hours of getting home and they really liked it! They don't like many of the games we try to teach them, so win!

Marcus and I tried this and found it wanting. A lot. We did see Captains of Industy which looks more like a completed product. Next time we'll try that.
