How is codename pictures?


It's really good, much better than I was anticipating

The illustrations are not colourful, but very nicely detailed with simple and clear pictures. Each picture card is also a Salvador Dali-esque surreal mix of odd things.

I thought they were ace. It takes the normal codenames problem of interpreting things in maybe two different ways, and FORCES each card to mean 2 things. Pharoah with a Laptop for instance?

I think it's ace, and I would possibly prefer to play it over standard codenames now.

We played 4 player only, but it was still a great laugh, and for a pretty cheap game, there's more than enough fun in the box for your cash.

Thanks! Was on the fence as codenames is a lot of fun but this seemed to add a difficulty element that I wasn't certain my less gamer inclined friends would appreciate.

Terraforming Mars x3
Qwixx x 3
Animals on Board
Viticulture Essential Edition

I normally try and play a good variety of games but Terraforming Mars seemed to take up several of the nights this week. It's a great game with sub-par components.

Qwixx was played at Sunday Funday with the family and was a gift for my FIL's bday. It was actually more fun than I thought it would be.

Because a gamer in our group managed to clean up his place (bless him... which is more than could be said for myself ), I'll be bumped up to weekly, instead of just bi-weekly gaming. However, these are also "short sessions" at up 3 to 5 hours, so still no chance to get in any longer games. Still, not complaining beyond that....

Smash Up + expansions | 5p | 1h 22
Cyborg Ape | that race that copies others
Zombie | Time Travelers
Dinosaur | Aliens
Ghost | Pirates
Robot | Pixies

Splendor | 4p | 37 min.
Somebody managed to rush with cards that only give points, so it was a nice way to keep myself and others (less so them with their engine) from gobbling up cards like Pac Man. Even though he got 18, I managed to get to 15.
