In this fast, strategic, dice combat duel game, my guy, who likes to beat people up, defeated Chris’s guy, who enjoyed beating people up. Poison die vs. Shadow die. I had a super lucky roll at the end! Mwah ha ha!

Chris was slashing the shrink on this when I arrived, so we had to play it last night! My fat-assed, long-necked, foraging creature kept gobbling up food, and my pack of really smart beasts wisely just ate one of them to feed the whole pack each turn.

I controlled the most successful species, but if there’d been one more turn, I think Chris would’ve caught and passed me. Mwahaha!

One of my current favorites. I thought I had a terrible race, I was wrong. My 3rd victory tonight and the first time with this game.

Wow was this not received well at all by half my group. There were tears shed and grimaces aplenty. Pretty safe to say I'll never bring it back and may just burn it as a sacrifice.

A little more shine on the Magnificent Lorenzo game. Our final for the evening. Again, playing to my strength I was usually jealous of the other players position and families. Nonetheless, I also pulled out a victory here. 4 wins in 4 different games tonight, a good gaming night at CABS. I did notice CABS was hopping most of the evening. Nice crowd and fun.

This used to be as popular as Terraforming Mars. . . for about six months.

Stuffed Fables is the spiritual successor to Mice and Mystics. It’s a cooperative game. It has awesome minis. The rules are streamlined and simple. The story is more verbose, there are elements of Dead of Winter’s Crossroads Cards and Mansions of Madness’s condition cards, and not as many tokens to manage.

It’s designed for ages 7+, which is spot on! I think Chris was a good sport for playing with me, and I think he enjoyed it with a father’s perspective on how it would play with kids.

I’ll play it anytime, because I’m a kid at heart, but it might be too simple for most gamers to play without kids. This will definitely be coming out at school game club with the 4th - 6th graders!

We played the Hellas board plus Venus, and considering I haven't gone near this game in nearly 8 months, I did very well, only finishing 8 points off the lead. However, 3.5 hours to play a card game.......... ya gotta be kidding me. 5 players just sucks your gaming life away, and if you start with 0 production on everything, you're just strangling yourself, basically. Thankfully, we didn't draft; we'd have been playing till sunrise. robotyuk
