Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Yesterday's action:
3x Heroscape using C3G "correct" Batman specific armies although I did use Lex Luthor as a proxy for Alfred after a lengthy "discussion" (my son is very particular for someone who has no skin in the game). I went 1-2; Batman can get wicked with Evasive Strike.

2x Castle Panic - We got our first legitimate win! There were high fives on this one. This game is tough and maybe I get a little too into it, but I find myself exhausted after this game. I'm getting old.
Fun game though, thanks again to SuperflyTNT for the hook.

G-O

Speaking of Castle Panic, I scored a copy for 30% off on a tax free weekend at B&N for 24 bucks!

Wasn't really able to game this weekend now that I've started my Bachelors program and vacation from work is over.

It's back to the grind...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Been playing Dominion basically every night since Gen Con and my wife just beats the crap out of me every time....but this TIME! 147 - 53!!!! I love me some Golems / King's Court / Goons / Hunting Party / Horn of Plenty. My wife was busy trying to transmute her whole deck while I was flying through mine!! I suppose rubbing it in wasn't the best idea...looks like I'll be on the couch tonight... (but it was totally worth it!)

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Got to play Blood Bowl (with the minis, not Team Manager) last night. One member of our group has a bunch of teams and sets and was trying to get a Blood Bowl league going. I really liked the game, but am on the fence about joining the league as it's a 2 hour ++ game, and more so for noobs. We'll see. But it was cool having my Orc team smashing my opponent's Human Norse team. The hardest part was figuring out zones for support for making blocks/blitzes.

I also got to play 7 Wonders for the first time. We had 7 players and the scores ranged from 32-57. I finished 3rd with 47 points. It was fun and just takes more experience to figure out what the different symbol etc. mean. But lots of fun for sure.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I managed to squeeze in a game of Camelot Legends last night. My girlfriend won, but she didn't beat the snot out of me like last time, heh. This game requires a little more strategy than I lend to which I make quite a few mistakes because of it. Final scores were 29 to 27.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I like Kingsburg a lot.

Cave troll's OK, though I've only played it with 2 and think it would be better with more.

Krugkiller and I just kept chanting An ADVENTURER! Everytime we played one.

You had to be there.

2011 most played: 1. Heroscape/Monsterpocalypse/Quarriors. 4. Warhammer Invasion. 5. Last Night on Earth.

My experience with Cave Troll had three players and I thought it was pretty fun, although I know some games work with two players but were best made for more.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Just opened my copy of Death Angel.

After three miserable solo games without ever getting past the second room, I asked lil'hoju to try a game.
We then went on to beat the game with less then a 50% loss to our space marines.
He then looks at me and says "I thought you said this was going to be hard?"

Yeah, I played a two games of Kingsburg a couple years ago, got my own copy about a year and a half later, and it's been sitting for a solid 6-7 months since. My brother refreshed my memory yesterday, and it was just as much fun as I remembered. The more players the better IMO.

Same with Cave Troll, with a full compliment of players (4) I imagine it would be a blast.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Rune Age tonight - Played the Cataclysm scenario with my wife and daughter, still lost. I am 0-3 against it. We only had 2 more cards to go in the event deck though so that was the closest I've been. The Elves just seem bad for this scenario. I think we'll try it next time with the other 3.
