I feel like I have to share this moment, because it was so satisfying. I have played at least 10 games of Zeds, and never won. However, the deeply thematic nature of the game, and the strategic decisions to be made, kept calling me back for more.

Somehow, I finally won today on the Brains!!! level. And when I did, I let out a spontaneous barbaric yawp. My daughter stared at me like I was crazy and slowly backed out of the room. My wife was somehow unimpressed by the heroic stand of Deputy Schmidt, and the timely arrival of the national guard. Since no one in my house will share in my joy, I just had to turn to Board Game Geek. I'm sure someone out there understands.

I do love board games. I'm not an intense gamer. My daughters and my job keep me to about 1-2 solo gaming sessions a week. So while I have not played a ton of games, I've played a fair amount. I own and enjoy quite a few other solo games and SoS games, but I can honestly say that this was the most exciting and satisfying victory I have ever had.

Fantastic work, VPG!!! I can't wait to play again.

Excellent result. I understand your situation only too well. My wife doesn't "understand" our love of "stupid board games" (Her words, not mine!) shake

thumbsup Congratulations! We gamers love a challenge. I know just how you feel. My husband doesn't really get it either, but he fakes it pretty well. DOTZ is one of my favorites. It's sitting on my table to be played today. (Love the Whitman reference
