We had 14 people last week, and I, for one, played things new to me, but this week, they certainly aren't new. We're off for this week as part of Origins-prep, so see you guys next week on the 10th.



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 Two Headed Games (previously: Illuminaudi NKY) here, and here:

After not being able to find the BGG.CON library copy last year, we finally got a chance to play 6 nimmt! the board game, sorry Tanz der Hornoschen! Tanz feels like 6N with all of these variants Wolfgang never told you about: varied length of the rows, set points, taking points to increase hand size, double plays, sequential play, mid-row points, and inverse points. I think I prefer the elegance of 6 Nimmt!, but Tanz is solid.

I thought Patchwork was OK at first, but like it more and more as I play it. This week, other people were playing it.

After one person had setup Friday, three players played a game. You heard me, three people. Doesn't make sense to me either.

An interesting stock market/area majority game. I suppose in a sense that all stock market games are area majority, but this one was the inverse- an AM game with just a flavoring of stocks. Plus it had "draw two from the top" - one of my favorite mechanics, and a closed economy. Some difficult decisions for such a clean ruleset and the mechanical design of the game was impressive. (Yes, that's my yellow zeppelin, way back on the start space....I had a plan...)

Verflixxt with 5 or 6, I can't remember. I've been surprised at how differently this seems to play out each time.

A max length game, but with all the negatives up front. I didn't do well.

I mean, just look at the illustration on the back of the cards! This little card game feels like a Gunter Burkhardt design- which is to say an overly balanced card game. GB is usually too focused (for me) on countering the randomness of the initial card deal; here, the designer is over correcting having a giant hand of cards? It's a somewhat manufactured issue to correct. This was a real gem for me though - in that Parade, 6 Nimmt! vein of a basic simple compelling card game.
