My KS copy of the two player Draco Magi showed up in the mail yesterday. The art is gorgeous, and the Grey Elephant video makes it look promising as a game. It hasn't hit the table yet, though.

Already selling for $18 at CSI, for those interested.

Argh! Mine hasn't shown up yet. I'm jealous, very jealous. Did you get the mat and foils?

No, not the mat & foils. The mat would be nice.

So glad someone else got this, though!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

My group had a 25 hour gaming event on the 11th/12th of October for the Extra Life charity. One of the local game stores donated some new games for people to win via raffle tickets. I bought $5 worth of raffle tickets and put all 5 in the envelope for Sails of Glory.

I found out the following Monday that I had won it but it was at the game store and hadn't gotten there until today at lunch to pick it up. I've played my buddy's copy of the game as he had kickstarted it at a huge level and has tons of ships, so I knew it was a good game. Lowest I've seen it for online stores is around $60, so not to shabby for a $5 investment that went toward the Extra Life charity. (I had also donated a bit more via their website as well).

Twilight Struggle is fantastic; I wish I could play it more often. Heck I wish I could even finish a game.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I have fallen hard for Descent 2.0

I was always worried about picking up because it did not have solo rules, but I finally bit.

I tried it a couple of times on my own with some easy solo rules and it was a blast, but the solo rules I came up with were very simple. So I went to BGG and found a great automated Overlord system that works beautifully. I started the Shadow of Nerekhall campaign last night and the Overlord kicked my butt in the opening scenario.

I really love the idea that the game is not just a kill-em-all every single time. I also love that the Overlord and the heroes have seperate objectives. The game has many different classes and heroes which lends to some great choices and re-playability.

I've already bought most of the expansions and am already planning on picking up the rest that I don't have.

Now with the news that Imperial Assault has been moved up from Q1 in 2015 to Q4 in 2014, Fantasy Flight is taking all of my money...

Yeah, Descent 2.0 is a quality game. I love the scenario play, and I love how streamlined it feels. We haven't played it in ages. Too many games; you know how it is.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I played Thunderstone Advance tonight. I went for a hybrid between Vasel's alternate rules and the standard rules: 8 different types of level 1 heroes, 8 different types of weapons, 8 different types of items, 8 different types of spells, each shuffled together by type and divided into the appropriate number of types. I played on the Wilderness board, since my opponent had never played before. I think the Wilderness side probably helps game speed. I really enjoyed the game--maybe one of the most enjoyable Thunderstone games I've ever played. Setup and takedown was a bear, though--moreso than Dominion. I think I like the Siege mode better, because it feels more like a multiplayer game than the regular game, which often feels like 2-player solitaire.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.
