I'm always waiting for these

thumbsdownPandemic Legacy: Season 1 NEW! xd10-5
4 players. 2 games of vanilla, 3 of Legacy.
We lost the 2 vanilla game, then lost the first Legacy with two players not even taking a turn.
The group decided to reset the board and we won January and lost February.
So far, it's a 5/10 for me. Not impressed, a bit repetitive, room for improvement, we'll see what it becomes.thumbsdown

heartAeon's End xd10-4
Solo, I fought and took down Maiden of Thorns, Hollow Crown, but fell to Wraithmonger.
A solid 9,5/10, truly impressive game!heart

thumbsdownHero Realms: The Ruin of Thandar Campaign Deck xd10-3
Solo, finished my Cleric campaign, then started a Thief/Wizard/Fighter campaign.
A strong contender for worst game I ever played. I didn't enjoy it at all. Too many effects preventing you from doing anything, to the point of no fun. Not for me, For Sale along with the rest of the Hero Realms line...thumbsdown

thumbsupTriplock xd10-3
Two face-to-face games with 2 different players (won both), 1 solo game against the Factory.
I like it, but better 2 players than solo.thumbsup

thumbsupThe 7th Continent xd10-2
We have reached a not very satisfying conclusion, I'm a bit baffled and don't know what to think...

thumbsupArkham Horror: The Card Game xd10-1
2 players, we have also reached a conclusion: the devourer devoured us. Skids once again did nothing at all. Mh.thumbsup

thumbsupHostage Negotiator xd10-1
I took on the Twins. The first 1 surrendered but the second one escaped, so it's a loss!thumbsup

Need to game some more zombie

Kingdom Death: Monster came.

I played fifteen lantern years worth of campaign.

It’s been the best experience I’ve ever had in boardgaming. And on top of that it has totally made me stop checking Kickstarter and my email. I have a long, long line of pre-orders coming and for once I’m not just waiting.

Packed week for me!

Tuesday
Witness x6. When we originally played my wife hated this, been waiting for months to find a replacement for her and finally managed it. We did poorly on two cases, ok on two cases and good on two cases. It's always funny to see the answers in this game.
Battle Sheep x2. New!

Friday
Caverna: Cave vs Cave

Saturday
Agricola (Revised Edition)
Whitehall Mystery x2.
Aztack x2. New! At a friend's, no need to play again.

The cursed year of 2017 continues, but we are starting to pick up and getting a game in once a week usually now...

This week we managed to get in:

Iron Dragon
2 players, 2017 reprint edition

Always a blast, but the quality of the new editions are disappointing. No longer do they have a printed poker chip manufacturer, a big appeal to the game. (Imagine if Splendor came with chipboard punchouts of monochrome nature instead of poker chips.)

They reduced the lose a turn and flood events, but I liked having more disaster events. The board is busier, no longer has a city location reference on the board, the underground is now printed across a split on the puzzle board, the board and cards are thinner, I'm not a fan of the new artwork direction (but it probably appeals to modern gamers more), and I find the lack of 2 player rules modifications to be a bit strange - but we played with those.

However, as I said, had a blast. This game beats Pandemic on total number of plays in my lifetime (I played a ton before meeting my wife), and my favorite crayon rail game.

Pandemic Legacy Season 2
2 player, prologue month

I'll reserve judgement until I get into it, but my first reaction is "not Pandemic and not as interesting" - but without playing the legacy info, its like playing the first tutorial of Dungeon Twister The Card Game and calling it dumb. We're going to play one more prologue month and then start playing the actual game, but I'm a bit more apprehensive about it.

Fri:
King of Tokyo - Played three games - we seem to bust this out during October/Halloween

Formula D - Played one league race, had a poor finish (4th out of 5). We have two races to go and I am in first by a point.

Gloomhaven - Once again the four of us played a scenario and were barely victorious. Our 36th play and it still is so much fun, the four of us secretly hope others wont show for game nights so we could get more Gloomhaven played!

Sat:

No board gaming other than some rules reading/card sleeving.

South Park: Fractured But Whole PS4 - did get a few hours in, wow.

Sun:
Hero Realms x2 - played a couple of team games while waiting for the rest of group to show.

Battlestar Gallactica - Played a six player game, humans once again lost. One jump away......

On the down side, slow week...
3 x For Sale

On the positive side...For sale was a hit with my brother who has really only liked codenamed prior to this, my great aunt, my dad who kept saying it was like spades, and my dad's girlfriends little girl who beat us in out last game like a pro. So that's Good!

Also, I feared for my life as I walked into my dad's place and they had Monopoly set up and his girlfriend said "you like board games right?" surprise

Luckily they had just finished a Game and I dodged that Halloween nightmare.

Played a group of new games, along with some older favorites:

Yokohama: X 1 NEW 8 out of 10
Grog Island: X 1 NEW 7 out of 10
Bunny Kingdom: X 2 NEW 6 out of 10
Fantasy Realms X 1
Patrician X 1
Xia: Legends of a Drift System X 1
Chinatown X 1
Innovation Deluxe X 1
Red7 X 1

Out of the new games, I really enjoyed Yokohama the best. The mechanisms are very clever and intelligent, and I'm looking forward to playing it again.

I enjoyed Grog Island as well, thought it had some interesting mechanics with bidding, area control and set collection. I'm not sure why it never got much love, maybe there were too many hot games that overshadowed it that year, like Orleans, Five Tribes, and Roll for the Galaxy.

Bunny Kingdom is the new game from Richard Garfield. I enjoyed the card drafting and area control parts of the game, but the elaborate scoring system turned me off a bit.
