Last week I played 3 games.

Board game lunch day we played another game of Ex Libris, and I won! I so rarely win! I'm actually tracking my win/lose ratio this year. So far I'm 1-2 (1 win, 2 losses).

For my weekly Wednesday meetup we started on our groups 2018 challenge with a game of The Downfall of Pompeii. This was such a joy to play! Easy to teach, quick to play, and just fun. I never thought I could have so much fun throwing little cubes into a volcano, but there you have it!

Our second game for the night was Yamatai. I really hadn't heard anything about this one before we played. The art and colors definitely gave me a Five Tribes feel. It wasn't the same artist, but it was the same designer! I was pretty overwhelmed at the beginning of this one, but things slowly started to click. However, it was another loss for me, but I wasn't dead last! I hung out in the middle, and that's fine with me considered how confused I was when starting!

On My Mind
- Finally watched the Dark Tower movie. I waited quite a while because I knew it wasn't going to live up to the book. If I didn't think about events in the book it was a fine little movie. Idris Elba made a fantastic Roland. I didn't really feel Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black though.
- Haven't started the new season if Black Mirror. Don't want to depress myself this time of year.
- I got Matt this chart from Pop Charts of 100 essential movies for Christmas. You scratch it off after you watch each movie. So far we've watched It's a Wonderful Life for the first time, Pulp Fiction (definitely not the first time), and Mad Max: Fury Road (also definitely not the first time).
- I'm working my way through Persepolis Rising. Love The Expanse series! Enjoying this one so far
- Also working my way through the Alexander Hamilton biography as an audio book during my commute. I'm learning a lot!

Played 8 (plus 66 Yucata plays)


I'm not sure this should be so high. It's a fun game. Can be very cut throat, but does it have staying power?

It's had a but of resurgence for me on Yucata (66 plays), but I don't find myself playing it FtF.

The Downfall of pompeii: The component of this game are not that great, and the first half might feel a little bit boring, but as soon as the second part starts evaryone seems to have a lot of fun. Great game overall.

There's something so satisfying about looking your opponent dead in the eyes as you throw their people into the volcano.

The choices in this game are not too difficult. And there is a decent bit of luck involved. But it's fun and engaging and when you play in real life, you get to throw people into a volcano.

Santa has landed!

Hi folks,

I just finished catching my breath after an intense post office-dash and box opening session! Santa did an amazing job this year and got me two sweet selections from my wishlist.

First, Santa got me The Downfall of Pompeii! This is awesome because my fiancée is a) Italian and b) really into mean games! I am really excited to get this to the table. I may even take it to Rome with me in December (wedding bells will be ringing in late December). I am also hopeful that I will be able to get a tour of Pompeii in this trip! Very thoughtful of you Santa!

Second Santa got me a much desired expansion for Race for the Galaxy:Race for the Galaxy: Rebel vs Imperium! This was wayyyyy high on my wishlist as Race is one of my most played games. Actually, I was playing it on my iPad while I was waiting in line at the post office. I am excited to add this expansion to my base game and get some live plays going! Woo hoo! Great choice Santa!

I have had a wonderful Secret Santa experience this year. My Santa was very considerate to send my gifts early (to allow me time to get them before I leave on my trip), sent me lots of updates and even taunted me a few times about sending me a copy of a ‘certain’ game! I had lots of fun and I hope that Santa did too!






Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas to all!

Played this with 4. This game is just the fight level of goofy, luck, and length. Not to be taken too seriously, I always enjoy tossing people into a volcano.

Playing a Giant copy at GenCon was Awesome.

Can you make a game that involves a group of people that all die in a natural disaster and enjoy dropping opponents in a volcano? The Downfall of Pompeii!!!

Game is played in two-stages.

Stage 1: Players load up Pompeii with as many of their clan as possible and as close to exits as possible. I guess those people knew that they might need an escape from Pompeii. Draw an omen and you get to pick a Joe to put......IN-THE-VOLCANO!!!! Loading your "family" is a little wonky.

Stage B: This is the fun part. The volcano erupts any you take turns putting lava on your opponents and select the two people in your family worth saving...this turn. If your block-eeple is around more block-eeples they can move faster. Again a little Timey-Whimey.

Even thought theme has a few weird plot issues, it is a blast to play.

See what I did there?
