Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Work is still...work but I've been playing Joan of Arc and Hexplore it when I can. The Apocalypse expansion for Joan of Arc has been great. I'm excited for the 1.5 version hitting kickstarter on October 1st.

@Raider30 mentioned Hexplore It to me back in the day when it was the original version on kickstarter. For whatever reason I didn't pay much attention to it (probably lack of minis). I recently purchased it and it has been a blast playing. The character combinations really drive the replay-ability.

Dragon Dice - (the 2nd best game there is) Learn to Play!

Tried someone else's copy of Clash of Cultures, and enjoyed it. Ditto for Black Rose Wars. Also played my Red Alert.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Did two three player games of my brand new Hellenica: Story of Greece. Its a great game, and beautiful to boot, with all of the extra minis. It has many variables for great replay value too!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Greatly enjoying Rurik: Dawn of Kiev. Its a new Euro which only takes 30 min. per player (1-4 Players). I don't know of any other game that uses the medieval Kievan Rus, except for Swords & Sails, which I've also been playing!

People have been fighting over Ukraine for a long time; and they still are!

For Halloween I'll be playing another's copy of Vast 2: The Haunted House. Next month I'll be trying a pal's copy of War Room, the Mega-Ultra-Maximum evolution of Axis and Allies, self published through Kickstarter by its original designer.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Is Vast 2 by the same makers of Vast: Crystal Cavern?

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Ah, cool. That game is a pretty interesting concept (though it hasn't made the playing table for me much, sadly).

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played Black Rose Wars & really enjoyed it. It's a combination of programming, deck building & kinda area control. I played the Necromancy & for the first round was totally lost as all my spells relied on getting Undead monsters out & doing things with them. But I struggled to be able to summon them. I was killed in this first round & found myself last & behind by about 12 points (which in our game was pretty huge). The next round, with the help of some newly learnt spells, I was able to summon. But my monster & I were killed before being able to put together anything. Before the end of the round I was able to make another summon & that monster did some damage that brought me back to within 5 points of 2nd place. The rest of the game the others were just trying to contain my monsters. As I was pulling some wicked combos that awarded my lots of points. I won with 7 points clear. Definitely an enjoyable game once you get your head around the mechanics for scoring. At first I felt frustrated as my character required monsters to do things & it was a struggle with the starting spells to do what's required. As a new player I almost gave up at that point & just went through the motions. It wasn't until the learning of the new spells that allowed combos that made the initial spells make sense before I felt comfortable with the game. So it wasn't until at the 3rd round that the game clicked. Definitely recommend the game, but if playing the Necromancer you need to understand that the first round/s you are basically trying to set up for the following rounds.

Also played a 3 player game of Flick Wars. A fun dexterity game. Got my butt handed to me even though I was trying to help my target get at my attacker. The 3 player game requires some strange tactics. Although I just really suck at "flicking".

I am mediocre at it, but don't have any other dexterity games. That's why I took Taeblewalker's copy off his hands!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I played Marvel Champions LCG last night and played it again this morning solo. I played as Spiderman vs Rhino. Last night's game was my first time playing and lost, but this morning Spidey took it to Rhino and won.

Fun game. There is also Klaw and Utron as villains, as well as Black Panther, Iron Man, She-Hulk and Captain Marvel as the other heroes in the core set. Captain America, Green Goblin and The Wrecking Crew are upcoming releases, as they have a monthly release schedule.
