A light week of gaming amongst the holiday frenzy...

Monday
2x - Limes

Sunday
1x - Luna - mb


My family is not much for designer board games let alone playing old but more familiar games either when we get together so it was wishful thinking to hope for anything to hit the table during our time together. Regardless we had a great time visiting and catching up on some sleep which was nice, just no gaming to show for it.

meeple Keep playing...

No gaming during the entire week! But a game day on Saturday made up for it

We started with Dreams. I had played it once before, and had some serious doubts about three-player compatibility. But that proved unfounded, we had tons and tons of fun! Every round was followed by some discussion about who was drawing what and how did you think that resembles the picture at all!? GF won this one.

After that, we broke out The Arrival for a first play. I had preordered this one for Essen pickup, and finally got to play it. This is the first Martin Wallace game I have played that does not feature steam engines, and I'm glad to say it did not disappoint. It took a little getting into, but it was great fun. GF won this one with a one-point difference!

After that it was filler time, so we played Crabs!. A small card game that is more fun than any small card game has the right to be. I won this one with relative ease, since I was the only one going for the big bonus card.

Next up was Brass: Lancashire. If you'd ask me what my favorite game is and I'd have to answer within five seconds, Brass would be it. I absolutely love this game, even though after eight plays we're only scratching the surface of what it has to offer in terms of strategy. For the second time in the past four games or so, GF won due to points for her links. I had a massive industry going on (being uncontested for the foreign market means I could spam cotton mills without caring about harbours). But I ended up eight or so points short. Third player was 20'ish points behind me, so it was a relatively close game

After Brass, it was about time to go home. But not before a game of Pick-a-Polar Bear. I really like this as a small, ten-minute game. GF won again, this time beating me by three cards or so!

Let's see what this week brings!

Thursday
Linko! x2 (this means we played two games of three hands each). Thank goodness For mother-in-law's who like card games. First games of this since she was in town months ago. She won once and my wife one once. I, lost.

Friday
TransAmerica. Was at my friends and we played with his two kids, the younger one didn't really get it when the lines connected that you could build anywhere. I won!
Kingdom Builder x2. Brand new. My friend, his wife and I played two games with me and my friend each winning one. I think I like this game, but we'll see after I play some more.
Sushi Go!. Got the kids back in for this one with the youngest beating me by one point thanks to a timely third Sashimi.
Zombie 15' x3. Friend and I played with two characters each and lost the first real scenario (#3). Definitely want to play this again but with three people so you don't have to think as much!

Scythe
Longest game in the history of Scythe. Had a group of four others that I taught the game to. Two girls playing got drunk and wouldn't stop talking and "social media-ing" even when it was their turn. Each turn is normally pretty quick in this game, so it got to be frustrating towards the end of the game when their turns took so long. Seriously, it was a six hour session. This is my casual group, though, and I still had a lot of fun.

1X a variant of Rummy
1X unpublished prototype

Saturday

1X a variant of Rummy

The unpublished prototype played on Friday is a WW2 game that I have been working on here and there for a year, and I finally got to playtest it with my Axis & Allies group. The game played very well, although certain steps in a turn were clunky. It felt really good to finally playtest it!
