I got to visit a game night at a FLGS out of town on Wednesday and got to enjoy some new games with new people. I had been there once before a year ago and had a great time then as well.



Libertalia x1
Codenames x1
Five Tribes x1
Fairy Tale x1
JurassAttack! x1
Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game x1



On the podcast I start with the wishlist for Spiel this year by giving 4 titles that I am looking forward to. I'll probably do 4-5 more titles each week leading up to Spiel this year instead of just doing a Top 10 list, everyone does those, right?

Also, don't forget our contest for a copy of Codenames. New clue in the podcast and the board photo is up on the blog!

Have a great week!!!

x1 Small World
x1 Libertalia
x1 Eclipse - Had some people over for an Eclipse game day. 5 of us played a 5 hour game, and only 2 of us had played before. The Planta player ended up winning by expanding heavily and turtling on the central tile. I came in a close 2nd as Draco by controlling the inner ring and defending several ancient hexes. There was an epic final battle that lasted 15 minutes.

Fall is here…

Tuesday
1x - Abyss - mb

Sunday
1x - Castles of Burgundy - with 4th and 5th expansions


I had assessment activities all day every day at work this week and a 50 mile charity ride in Indiana on Saturday which limited my gaming opportunities. We have a foreign exchange student arriving to stay with us for a couple weeks and I’ll be out of town for a conference next week so it I’m not sure how much gaming I’ll see the rest of the month.

meeple Keep playing...

Three days of gaming last week which is more than usual

Wednesday

We started with Star Wars: Imperial Assault. I liked that game. I wouldn't buy it but will happily play it again. I liked that the "overlord" was playing after every hero, this is something that I am missing in Level 7 [Omega Protocol]. But I think that it could be in any other world/theme, not necessarily SW and it would still be the same game.

We then played a 5-player game of I Hate Zombies. I think this gaming group is not the best audience for this game and it will have more success with non-gaming people.

King of Tokyo was great as always.

6 nimmt!. I played it for first time and it was great. It is little more thinky than Sushi Go!, but Sushi looks better and I personally like the gameplay more. But still, cows are, for me, one of the best fillers.

Sheriff of Nottingham. Also played for the first time. Great fun, great bluffing game. I am strongly considering buying the game.

String Railway. Another first time. Didn't like this that much.



Thursday

2 games of Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise. Great fun as always.

I lost a game of Specter Ops in which I played as the hunter. I love this game but I cannot win it. Ever.



Sunday

We played a 7-hour game of Twilight Imperium (Third Edition). Unfortunately I made 2 mistakes in the end so I didn't win but I have also reached 10 points in the same round as the winner.

After that we were too tired so we only played 3 games of the amazing Red7 and a Straw

Play count was on the lighter side this week but the games themselves felt meaty and make me feel like I played more than I really did:

Smash Up x3 (won twice w/ Miskatonic Dinosaurs & Innsmouth Robots!)

Mr. Card Game x1 (This was an epic Ascension mode game with classes and quest bosses. Kind of absurdly long but still fun. Also...so many card piles)

Star Trek Attack Wing x1 (Wife crushed me. I need to stop playing cloaking ships. I get reckless.)

Trains x1

Runebound x1

Chaosmos x1 (Interesting game. Want to play it again.)

Tuesday
------------------------------------------------


Forbidden Desert x1 - We lost 1 turn from winning.
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game x1 - Humans are victorious!

Friday
------------------------------------------------



Epic Card Game x1 - Very impressed with this one. Definitely want to play again.
Imperial Settlers x1 - First game of IS. It was fun but took almost 3 hours! Definitely way longer that it should.


Saturday
------------------------------------------------


Imperial Settlers x1 - Second game of IS went much smoother. We finished in 2 hours, and everything zipped along at a good pace. Definitely a keeper.
Hanabi x1 - 2 Stacks complete. No fuses lost.
Agricola x1 - The new player and I had 16 points each...the 2 veteran players had 36 and 34 respectively. I really suck at Agricola
Defenders of the Realm x1 - We were so close to winning, but Balazarg took Monarch City! Nest time we will be victorious!

Just one game this week, but it was a good one. The gf and I played case #1 of Arkham Investigator. Was a lot of fun, and was something I had been wanting to try.

Friday (solo)
Pandemic (solo)
Battlestar Galactica x2 (with parts from all expansions)
Diplomacy (resulting in two players yelling at each other)
Twilight Imperium

The BSG games were particularly memorable. The first one I was playing a cylon leader but was helping the humans... until I got to the conditions under which I could fulfill my objectives and win. "Which one of you is an unrevealed cylon that wants an executive orders?" -- Cally (cylon) ends up executing Romo (human) and it all goes downhill from there.

The second game the humans one, but one of the pre-reveal cylons managed to activate every treachery skill check ability two checks in a row (Bill Adama using his OPG). This resulted in most of the destiny deck becoming treachery, and the destiny deck kept spitting out "A Better Machine" cards, resulting in more treachery going into the deck. It was a 4.5 hour game, and we only rebuilt the destiny deck (due to it running out of cards) ONCE. Humans barely won.

1x Artifacts, Inc.
1x Eggs and Empires
2x Capo Dei Capi
1x Biblios Dice
1x Arboretum

Saturday
1x Biblios Dice
1x Imperial
1x Valley of the Kings: Afterlife

On Imperial, first time playing and it was very frustrating. Great game, but I started out as the chief investor for England and the guy playing France was playing the game as if it were Risk. I tried to diversify and invest into France, but he just re-invested and left their stock at zero and kept "producing" and "maneuvering". I will never play the game with someone like that again. It really ruins the game for others.

I could've gotten a game or 2 of Survivor or Cards Against Humanity. The house I visited had toys for toddlers and a 4yo girl. THOSE looked like more fun than either of those. Nah, I just chatted and socialized there instead of playing games.



Broom Service 4p


Firefly Shiny Dice 5p
incomplete game. We only played 2 out of 3 rounds, with the 5th player in turn order perfectly fine with having only 1 turn

Elves And Orcs this was rethemed from? Don't know if that's a bad thing or not


Nevermore 5p
Drafting game with a theme of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven


Planes 3p
Finally got a copy of my game played! Not that it bothers me. There are plenty of other great games to get played. This one I got at half off at a convention many, many months ago this year

Game seemed to get a bit bogged down with looking at the rules to be reminded what the symbols do, having to move a space of cubes with your color on it, and how planning goes mostly out the window with the chaotic nature of even just 3p. However, the fun was still there. It's simple, but figuring it out still takes time is how'd I'd describe it.


Samurai
The original version. IIRC, FFG's version isn't out yet.


San Juan, 1st edition with The Buildings and The Events expansion modules 4p



I could've gone to another game night, but it's another hour away, while I'm already being out of town. Nah, I already bought food (the gaming venue is at a restaurant and they ask we buy food so "it makes business sense for them"), and decided to check out a video game lounge since I was right there. The usual thing is I wouldn't be able to stay long since it was a Sunday and I'd need to leave by 7pm, which makes most board game nights that go anything past that meaningless to me anyways.
