Family cruise vacation...

Monday
mb - 4.0 mi 33:14 (8:18)
2x - Ladder 29

Thursday
1x - Ladder 29


Time and options for a family vacation before my daughter left for college didn't work out this summer so we delayed until Christmas break when we could fit it in and do something special within our budget. No running was allowed on this ship and everyone was pretty tired after long days in port to allow for more gaming than we did, so light week this week.

meeple Keep playing...

Charterstone, twice back to back and it would have been a third time if one of our players didn’t have to work early the next day.

It’s a fantastic game, and one of the only games my group has ever set up to play again immediately after finishing.

The Chosin Few x8
Looks like this is ending up my most played game this year. 82 plays!

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear x1
Finally got to play with vehicles!
laugh

Hapsburg Eclipse x4
I love this one. I may sneak a few more games in before the year is out.

Risk: Star Wars Edition x2
I'm upgrading my liking of the game to, I would now buy it even without the cool Star Wars theme. Fun little game that achieves quite a lot in 45 mins! One of our games was epic, my son thought he had the win in the bag, but my tie fighters did just enough damage to tip the balance. I had to survive a few attacks on the Death Star, before turning the Rebellion's ships to star dust.

Game of the Week
Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game x3

My son and I have had a blast with this. Some folks say it has limited replay value, others say it has plenty. For me I don't see why I wouldn't play it again and again.
And even if not, it's designed in a way that makes it easy to come up with your own quests, treasure, enemies, etc. Anybody would think Fantasy Flight had been lining this up to pump out a lot of expansions!
In our third game, we nearly won, but a new enemy designed by my son showed up. Lord Business, of course...

A fine week overall!

Late to the party, but just home from being away. That means I only had a handful of games... that we played quite a lot.

Monday
Drive. First play in months (it's relegated to the travel game pile.). My wife thrashed me.

Tuesday
Schotten Totten x2.
Hive x3.

Wednesday
Whitehall Mystery x2.
Hive x2.

Thursday
Mr. Jack Pocket x2.
Whitehall Mystery

Friday
Whitehall Mystery
Tintas x2.

Saturday
Lost Cities
Whitehall Mystery
Elements
Schotten Totten x2.

Sunday
Mr. Jack Pocket x2.
Hive x3.

Whew. Best part is that all but Hive and Tintas fit inside the Whitehall box. Not a bad selection of travel games, eh?
