Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Commands & Colors Samurai Battles, the block redo of the old Zvesda minis game by GMT, is charging tomorrow, which means it will then be shipped. The old game was terrific; this version will be even better. And it will offer new stuff as well, plus 40 scenarios, all of which will be either new or expanded from the old ones. Really looking forward to this box!

(Update) Charging will now be Feb. 9, with shipping around Feb. 20.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Just got my first Covid shot here in NYC, after about six weeks of trying! After my second shot on March 13, I'll be having single guests over for two player games again! Several pals have their own preferences, and by then I should have the new block redo of Commands & Colors Samurai Battles.

Played Sleeping Gods for the first time today. STEEP learning curve, still have some rules questions - but it was FUN!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

My daughter (9) has been expressing an interest in board games. With my coaching obligations, we don't often get to play board games. She did the typical board game design of a child her age (ie a roll and move that at best could be called Candyland 2.0) and she loves Uno. Of course Uno with 2 players is Uno with 2 players, so I didn't really want to do that on the regular. So I decided to dust off Mice and Mystics. Now that's all she asks for, which is an obvious upgrade and much more enjoyable.

The other night we tried to complete chapter 3 for the 3rd time. The 2 previous tries we were defeated by Brodie on a total party kill. On the 3rd try we ended up defeating Brodie on back to back rooms. We just about had an epic win in the last room that would have been a great action scene ending in a movie adaptation.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

That’s great! What a blessing. And that’s an age when they can start to care about games in a more adult-like way.

My daughter is 18. We recently got 5 Minute Dingeon. Mercifully, she enjoys it and we’ve been playing. It’s very fun, and a great choice for your friends and family who have short attention spans and want coop.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Looking at some games that I don't own with my Steam/TTS gang, I just played my first game of Concordia, coming in third of three players with scores of 112, 110 and 86. Lots of fun, and not bad for a learning game.

We're now considering GMT's Time of Crisis: The Roman Empire In Turmoil 235-284 AD. Its an Ameritrash/Euro hybrid.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

my Tuesday night game group is on our third week of Heroscape. Heroscape has been set on my game table at home all week.

But I run a play by forum for B-17 Queen of the Skies by Avalon Hill, and Target for Today by Legion Wargames. So I have played it today too.
