April is looking like a light month of gaming. Chalk it up to work, soccer, and Flying Pig Half Marathon training. Bill Con III is only a few weeks away so May should prove to be a better month...

Sunday
1x - Kingsburg


meeple Keep playing...

Opened with a nice heavy game of Love Letter waiting for the doors to Gaming Hoopla to open.

Then we warmed up with a nice, easy game of Brass.

A few games of Glory to Rome and Giant Jenga filled out the afternoon.

Finally, another light filler to close the evening: Middle Earth Quest.

Axis & Allies Global 1940. The axis won by taking over Russia. This was our first axis win in 4 games. The game seems to favor the allies, which is historical.

Nothing actually. I went to the pub and worked in the garden instead.

Wednesday: Innovation, 2x Race for the Galaxy and Panic Station.

Saturday: our normal game day was moved to Sunday.

Sunday:
Core Worlds with 4 players. Our first game, and two players tied in points (31), so the winner was decided on which one produced more energy, and it was not me! shake

Battlestar Galactica with 4 players and characters from the upcoming Daybreak expansion. Jump distances were 3+2+3, so the post-sleeper cylon did not have so much chance of winning, although the humans won with just 1 fuel, 1 food, 4 morale, and 8 population (and no flyable vipers: 4 destroyed, the rest damaged).

Room 25 in suspicion mode with 4 players. It was the second time I was not a guard. Prisoners did not escape this time, it would've required 1 action more for both prisoners that were still alive.

Merchant of Venus (second edition) - Second play overall, and first on the standard side of the board. We're trying to figure out a way to merge what we like about the classic version with the things we like about the standard.

Helping a friend tune his decks for regionals, he finished 2nd!

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
Played with a variant to use all the superheroes and less repetitive enemies... much better game though way to easy

Formula D
Solo game with 4 cars to learn the advance rules, much different game

Star Wars: The Card Game
A small tune and playtest to get ready for this coming saturday regionals.

Smash Up
Still dunno where I land on this game. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's not

Ascension: Rise of Vigil
Boring deck builder

StarCraft: The Board Game
The first game (to my knowledge) to be a deckbuilder. though in this game it's just 1 of the many things going on. AWESOME GAME

Saturday

Twilight Struggle- 1st time playing. Wow. My GF and I played and, of course, loved it. Can't wait to examine the ruleset again to get some of the nuances better down for next time. This will be getting back onto the table ASAP.

Sunday

Formula D- 2nd play for this one. I managed to get the win after crashing and burning last play. Fun, but can be a longer play than I'd like for the limited mechanics/tactics. Maybe I'm missing something?

The Resistance: Avalon- 1st time playing, ended up playing 2 games back-to-back. A few players in our group's favorite new game. Tons of potential for replayability here as players learn each other's tells and form new strategies. The role cards are fantastic!

King of Tokyo with Power Up- Always a hit, have played this 10-15 times.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue- 1st play for many in the group. Ended up losing, but still had a blast. Always a go-to game for 2P with my GF.

Vegas Showdown- Played w/ 3 people. Again, another hit. 2 new players really liked the auction/tile placement combo.

Small World with all expansion races/powers- A mainstay. It's small world. It's great.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue x2
Love Letter x1
Survive: Escape from Atlantis! 30th Anniversary Edition x1

This was our first time playing Flash Point. Our first game we played the family rules and the second we did the experienced version on the easiest difficulty. The first game we rescued everyone with ease but in our second the house collapsed one move from getting our seventh victim out. Can't wait to give it another go.

This is the third weekend straight we have played Love Letter.

Survive was another first for us. We didn't notice the suggestion in the back of the rules to play with all four colors when playing a two player game so we ended up getting all of our treasure hunters to safety before we flipped the volcanoes. Why do publishers put the alterations for two-player play at the end of the instructions instead of making a note earlier? We ran in to the same problem with Alhambra a couple of weeks ago and had to adjust mid game.

I was supposed to be playing some Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (2nd Edition) on Saturday, but it got cancelled, so the only thing I got to play this weekend was a solo game of Onirim (I won!).
