Personally I love Sorcerer. I went all-in on the kickstarter and haven't regretted it yet. The back-and-forth mechanics are really unique; I haven't played another card game that keeps all the players that engaged so well.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Tried Scythe and didn't like it. Played Above and Below x2, Near and Far x2, Fire and Axe, Tales of the Arabian Nights, Rocky Road ice cream game, Star Trek Ascendancy and possibly some others - too much to remember at WGGCon.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Two games of Pax Pamir (2nd Ed), which is very interesting, although I don't plan to buy it. Two games of my favorite, Rising Sun, my 21st and 22nd games of it. Although I've only won 3 times so far, my goal is to win once with all eight clans (up to six can play at once). I lost the last game by only two points! My first Battle of Britain, which is not C&C but is a redo by Richard Borg. Germans got slaughtered by casualties, but this is apparentely common for a first game. Another game of Memoir 44: New Flight Plan. The old Air Pack was the only one of many M44 that disappointed, and it turns out the publisher messed with the designer's rules. This time he got to do what he wanted to originally, and its great! A game each of Quartermaster General and QMG 1914, which is particularly fun to teach new players, since it looks at the old subjects of WWs I and II with a totally new treatment, using cards.

Swords and Sails has just arrived, my first of three Big Box games coming soon. You can share my experiences on BGG. I've spent a lot of time prepping it and reading rules, making notes and a few simple player aids, etc. The designer has been very good about communicating and answering questions, both directly and on that site. Everyone was too busy this Labor Day Weekend, but I expect to play it next month. Mezo and Hellenica: Story of Greece are due in October.

I love Scythe. It's one of my favourite games although I don't think I have won a game yet.

I like it, but it’s one of those that is so crunchy it gives me the sweats!

I really liked it at the GenCon demo, too. I didnít buy it because I donít know when Iíd play it, though.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

caps came over a week back and we played it again; it's a good game for sure. Kinda feels like a very grown-up version of Smash-Up. Dice+Draw does create a fair amount of random chance influence, but there's a lot of skill as well for sure. Plenty of decisions to make.

Speaking of Smash-Up, I've been playing that a lot with my boys lately. I also introduced them to Dominion over Labor Day weekend and now that's all they want to play. That's nice because my wife will play Dominion too, so we get to have 4-player games.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Joan of Arc, Lotr: LCG, and Cloudspire have been hitting the table the most at my house. Wave 2 just arrived yesterday for Joan of Arc so I'm pretty stoked to get some world ending apocalyptic battles going once work finally slows down.

I am liking Cloudspire more and more when I play it but oddly enough I enjoy the vs. mode more than the co-op mode. I haven't tried solo mode yet, my son keeps wanting to play every time I try to play solo.

My oldest daughter is excited to go to Con of the Rings this year with me so we've been playing LotR: LCG when we can.

I also squeezed in a long campaign of Israeli Air Force Leader, Yom Kippur War.

I'm also still playing Pathfinder: ACG.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I bought Flash Point Fire Rescue which I have played before, and Mansions of Madness which I haven't. I'll be bringing both to my game group tomorrow.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played Sierra West and Black Angel this weekend. Both really good but I need more plays of Black Angel. More importantly, we are getting the band back together! Stephen Universe accepted a position at the company I work for, so we will be playing daily again. I have already acquired a gaming office and await his arrival Monday.
