Hah! The review I watched compared it in style and depth to Race for the Galaxy. I do like Splendor, though, and the similarity is there.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I can, but fun is in the eye of the beholder. I could name lots of games that are fun for me, but not for you. Even within my own gaming group not everyone has the same tastes in what is fun for them. We had 25 people in attendance last night and lots of different gaming tastes there.

So I don't need to bother naming a game that is fun for me, because you could just say that it's not a fun game and the whole exercise would be fruitless.

Stop bickering children. Mind your manners.


Back on topic...


A new FLGS recently open in my area and I went tonight (Tuesday) to check out their Open Board Gaming nite (other evenings are reserved for the usual WH, D&D, MtG, etc. Anyway, there were over 40 "kids" there with me probably being the oldest guy in the place. But I got to play Settlers of Catan and Munchkin: Adventure Time. It's *not* my idea of "fun" however I did enjoy the interaction with other gamers.

Sometimes that's all that matters. I have had good times playing games that I would not consider "fun". Sometimes the games that don't take a lot of brain power allow you to have more "fun" with the company. Although I still need a game to require some brainpower at minimum.

You could just say why the game is fun for you when you post it.

So then your earlier remark about us naming a "fun game" wasn't so much a commentary that the games we list as playing aren't fun, but rather you'd like to know why they are fun for us? If so, then that sounds better then to judge them as not fun.

Sometimes when I post my games played, I'm kind of in a hurry to do so before work or right before bed, so I may not go into as much detail in those regards. So I will try to wait until I have more time before posting them so I can give better impressions, if that helps.

I can say now that from my last list of games played, I enjoy Imperial Settlers because of the engine building aspect of it and how the 4 current factions have their own play styles due to having their own faction deck of cards to draw from, in addition to drawing from the common deck. There are several tough decisions to make because you have to manage your resources that you need to be able to spend for all the things you want to do. There are cards that give you resources, cards that allow you to do something by taking an action on that card, and there are feature cards that are passive and give you benefits when you do certain things. There is some player interaction because you can raze other player's common buildings and mess them up.
