Can't make it this week as I will be out of town
I'm going to have some downtime while travelling. Does anyone have a suggestion for a reasonably priced single player board/card game that would be good to travel with?

I've got games on my iPhone but thought this would be a neat opportunity to try something new out.
I'll be in Boston so I am also going to do a bit of research and see if they have any cool games shops!

ALSO, I am happy to say that Quicksilver hit it's Kickstarter target (which I contributed to) and we will all be able to play that together sometime in the distant future.

Friday ($15-20) and Onirim (~$10) would be two easy suggestions. Both should be easy to find. Otherwise, you might consider doing a PnP of micropul.

Those both sound very interesting. I'll likely drop by Fandom II tomorrow and grab one (if they are in stock).
Thanks!

That sounds like WBC week to me.
I know a few gamers that make that pilgrimage every year. It is worthy and a blast.

I was able to grab a copy of Onirim today on my break.
It is packed in my luggage and I am curious to give it a whirl tomorrow night at my hotel.
Basically, this means I will be gaming with you guys in spirit

Hey I wasn't alone - FIVE gamers tonight, which was just the right number for two rousing 5 player games!

First off was Lords of Waterdeep which goes on my list of favorite games! Even if I did come in last laugh While it may not have much of a D&D feel to it, it does come with just enough complexity and strategy to keep the game interesting until the end. Bob somehow managed a strategy that allowed him to come in first... Amazing it its own righ surprise

Then we moved on to a quick game of 7 Wonders which also proved to be quite challenging. I initial focused on my military ( of course ) but after insuring dominance worked on getting a lot, but an insufficient number of laurels to win. I think Vickie came out on top for that one.

And with that the evening quickly came to an end. Great fun with a great combination of gamers. Here is hoping we see some more of Vickimeeple

Cool. Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun.

As planned I played a bit of Onirim while out of town last week.
It is an interesting game that definietly invites several different types of strategy. I haven't perfected the rules yet, but have enjoyed each playthrough. I have not yet been able to win the game, but came frustratingly close once. The artwork on the cards is pleasingly surreal. I'd say it was well worth the $10!

I just got my work schedule for next week and I am clear next Thursday (the 16th) so I will be attending. Woohoo
