1x Ninjato
Taught this one to nyys and he took the win, playing well for his first time at the game. If I can recall the scores were nyys-98, Tina-90, and I at 86.

1x Survive
We taught this one to Tina, and it was fun clowning around with the game. Nyys won with a score of 24, I with 13, and Tina with 11.

1x Ascension
Most of the monsters took the day off in this match. Tina won by a hair with 88, I had 87, and nyys had I believe, 76.
Great game night. GOSU Kamakor was fantastic and I really enjoyed Ninjato as well. That one is going on the short list. Survive is always fun, and Ascension with all the expansions just keeps getting better.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Finished some models for Dust Tactics!

An Axis Ludwig.

Axis Luther.

I have also been slowly working on a Dreadfleet commission, which is (finally!) nearing completion. It has to be done by the 25th of the month, so I am coming down to the crunch on this one.



@Jormi: I really like your Malifaux work! I am starting a Malifaux commission sometime this month (a Showgirls gang), and I am really looking forward to it. The stockings on the Showgirls will be a real bugger to paint, as I cannot seem to figure out how I will get that sheer black look going.

Need miniatures painted?

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Got in my first 2 games of Dust Tactics and was underwhelmed by the whole experience. I was the Axis and we only played with the Core Set but both games were over in under 15 minutes. Hopefully there is more to this game than, Roll Initiative, Move, Roll Attack, and then do it all over again until one side is completely wiped out. On a positive note I thought the minatures that came with the game looked great.

I alos got to play my first 2 games of Lords of Waterdeep. We played a 3-player game and then a 5-player game. I really enjoyed everything about this game and the fact that I had 2 come from behind victories didnt hurt either. I had the Lady that lets you get 6 points for each building you own in both games. In the first game I got to build 5 buildings and in the second game even though the other 4 players all guessed early on that I had the same Lady again, they still let me build 6 buildings. Needless to say 30 and 36 points at the end of the game are huge. Very fun game and I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for another Euro style Worker Placement game. The Quest and Intrigue cards will make the game a little different everytime. Both the 3 and 5 player games took us about 90 minutes each.

I finally got to play another game of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. This was a 2-player Joust game and I tried a Greyjoy Deck for the first time while my buddy played a custom Stark Deck that he designed. He beat me 15-12 but I really enjoyed it. I wish there were more people around here that played this game as I think it is a really good, deep, game.

I finished the day with a 4-player game of Kingdom Builder. Two of the guys playing were new to the game and one of them won it. I finished in second place. Overall a very fun day of gaming.

I have to agree, but my kid likes it so I'm good with it for now. I hold out hope for the Warfare rules coming out soon.

We played Flash Point twice today using Lego firemen and both my kids (9 & 5) loved it. I did tweak the rules a little so nobody "died" after my daughter asked what happened to the dog after an explosion. I really like it as well and look forward to playing the advanced rules.

I tried Dust Tactics once and wasn't impressed. With the awesome minis and price tag, I was hoping for more than move and attack basic stuff. The guy that I played it with had gotten the core set on clearance for like $15, so it was too good of a deal for him to pass up.

Advanced rules for Flashpoint are tough, but fun. Still haven't won with them in 2 tries and that's on Recruit level.


Had a long game night last night, from 5 -12:30. I was only planning on staying until 11, but got lured into another game.

Played:

Tsuro - My first time playing. It was kind of neat and pretty quick.

Survive - 6 player game with Squid expansion. I didn't do so well as the squid were not my friend.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue - I played the Paramedic and got a few people out and even carried a hazmat out while I was leading a treated victim out. But the other 3 players couldn't contain the fire after awhile and the hot spots helped get it out of control for us. We only saved 4 victims before the building collapsed. We would have had another one but one guy carried the cat victim outside and left it just outside the front door. It was safe as there was no fires nearby and we figured we'd use AP's to call the ambulance over later. But then a series of explosions led to a shockwave that sent flames out the front door and fried the cat.

Catacombs - this was my first time playing this and I played the Barbarian. It was fun, but tough as 3 of the 4 of us had never played and our "flicking" skills weren't on par with the dungeon master. It was the DM's game and he had just gotten a new expansion that he wanted to try out with the Ice Princess, Blood Skulls, and Giant Scorpions that dished out poison.


Sail to Steam - This was a playtesting session for a game being developed. We liked some things about it but offered suggested changes that we would like to see.

Yeah, the game can feel pretty boring with just the first core set. You kinda have to get some of the other boxes, such as the artillery mecha and the command boxes. After those hit the battlefield, things get much more interesting.
@Omahavice: you should try some scenarios, such as take and hold type things. Those are always more interesting than kill 'em all games.
I am really looking forward to Dust Warfare, though. And the SSU are coming out soon!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Yesterday was a busy day but we did manage to get in a game of Gears of War. After the setup and the explanation of rules my boys were like "Oh this is going to be easy"...it wasn't...but we did pull out the victory thanks to some opportune rolls from Augustus (me) while the two of them were bleeding out on the floor. Definitely a fun game...and you can play it solo...so its a definite keeper. Just hope they make some expansions for it with new missions, locusts, etc.

Today we are going to my aunt's for Easter so I am picking out some games to bring along for my nephews to play with my boys and will probably bring along Telestrations and Wits and Wagers Family if we can get some of the grownups to join in.
