Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Nice!!!

I love to see you cashing in on the wind power. I don't think I've ever had a fully green set like that. I'm glad you got it to the table again. Who knows, you guys may decide you like it. Next time I'd go to Power Grid after 2x Love Letter, not 2x Pandemic.

Yeah, I like Power Grid but feel it does drag a little.

Early 2015


Quoted from Alderac Entertainment Group. "This one has less "love", and more "punch people in the face." It's a true variant on Love Letter, and we've been playing a ton of it, it's a blast."

It has Batman in it.

Don't know, but I suspect it might have some different play mechanics. They haven't given out any specifics yet.

Oh, I thought you were speaking from experiencing it when you said "This one has less "love", and more "punch people in the face." It's a true variant on Love Letter, and we've been playing a ton of it, it's a blast."

Sorry for the confusion buddy. My fault. That was a quote from AEG. I'll edit that post to make it clearer for others.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Hmm, now I wish I'd waited to get Love Letter.

Played our first two games of Dead of Winter last night! Both were the intro scenario. We got slaughtered the first time and barely squeaked it out the second time (and we all got our individual victory conditions).

It was fun, but felt really brutal that one or two bad rolls could so devastate you! I can't imagine how rough it must get when you throw a betrayer in. For those who've played a lot of it, how possible is it to win a three player game with one betrayer involved?

I'll need to play this more to see, but I could potentially see this as a replacement for both Last Night on Earth and Battlestar Galactica for me, since if feels like a mashup of those two. But that's only if I'm pressed for room in the future. Still love Battlestar.

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

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Is Love Letter actually good? All I've heard about it is how AEG is milking it for all the money they can, a.k.a. Batman edition.

Feedback: We could all use a little more

Yes. I am an Ameritrash player through and through and I even enjoy it. Though 7th Hero is somewhat similar and much more ameritrashy.

Hmm... I might have to buy that variant when it comes out.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

I haven't played it enough to answer that. I can say that having a betrayer definitely tanked our last game. I want to play it more and explore this. Hopefully others here have played it more and can answer that. I'd like to know. For now, what I can say is that I'm enjoying this one more each play!

As to Love Letter: Batman, yeah, I'm all in. I'm sure I'll get it. I enjoy Love Letter, but I'll definitely pick up a Batman edition (unless, of course, it gets truly terrible reviews, of course). I'm curious to see how they do it.

Love Letter is one of our go-to travel games. I can see this making trips that much more enjoyable.
