My third try on a hardcore 10x10 challenge. Failed miserably on the first try, was very, very close to completion on my second try, going to finish it this time, I am confident! (Should help, that we picked rather short games this timewhistle)

We have played this 60+ times already in 2017 and are looking forward to the new Carcosa campaign.

Codenames is one of our most played games, Codenames Duet hopefully is a nice additon.

Jan 02
The first game didn´t go too well and we lost with several words left.
We won the next though. Had 4 tokens left for 4 words to guess. We played it safe and only gave 1-word-clues.
Now thought we are ready for the mission map and decided to try Cairo next. Unfortunately the assassin hit us on our second last word (3 dfferent clues on the correct word and still guessed wrong...)

I expect this to be the hardest for us to finish 10 times.

Jan 02
Not sure if it was due to some unlucky dice at bad timing or if it was me playing poorly... in any case I lost by a huge margin.

Jan 04
I thought I am doing quite well during the game, but my partner managed to complete a really big area in the very last turn and was able to surpass my score.

Jan 07
I was doing ok, but my partner did better again. devil

Jan 11
Tiles came out in a very strange order. In the end the player who could grab the one bonus tile, would pull ahead and win. Which was me this time, pissing off my partner a bit.

The only game on this list, which I expect to play more with larger groups than 2p.

Jan 01
Brought Las Vegas to the New Year´s Eve party and it was a hit. Played again after we woke up on Jan 1st.

Jan 04
Played with another group and dynamics was very different. Was quite intersting to observe.

Expected a bit more from this game as we really like puzzles, but maybe it just takes a few plays to show it´s potential.

Jan 03
I had ordered the start tiles and extra tiles from abacusspiele and got them today. These really add the missing spice to the game and I am surprised they weren´t included in the base game. Didn´t help me to win though, but was enjoyable nontheless.

Jan 10
Slowly getting a bit of understanding and feeling for how to place tiles the best way. One loss, one win.

We have not played M for a long time, but it has been one of our favorite abstracts back then, so time to revive this.

Jan 03
I lost the first two plays, but managed a tie in the third one at least.
Played again later that day and I had a close to perfect result with 550pts, which ist about double of what I usually score on average.

Only played once so far and I am pretty curious how this is going to evolve over time.

Jan 08
It´s so much fun to play around with the tiles. I set a solo challenge for myself to build a castle with all tiles except wildes. I wasn´t able to this time, but I found out with wich set up it probably would be possible.

Jan 09
I was able to affirm my theory and managed to actually build a castle with all tiles except wildes.

Alternate: We don´t own this game yet and we have not played it. But from the description it sounds, as if we would like it.
