Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I don't usually play pure Euros, but recently I picked a couple up. Yesterday played one of them, Emperor's Choice, a second time, this time with the full player count. It was lucky that we had all five players, as two couldn't make it and were somehow replaced with other people. I enjoyed it, although for a second time I came in dead last! We had a good game, but the others said they thought the theme was not as strong, and those who had played Iki last month preferred it. Hoping next month to play Corto, another Euro I just purchased, as its much shorter, and can be played on the same day with other games as well.

Also played the first of two Battle of Brooklyn scenarios from the new Tricorne after three of the others went home. My opponent did exceptionally well with the Continentals, in a battle that actually took place only a few miles down the road from my house. Although we didn't finish the game, the Americans were ahead in VPs the whole time. They resisted an army which was better both qualitatively and numerically! Although I plan to game out the rest of the play solitaire, it doesn't look good for the British, who historically routed Washington's army--the second scenario is even worse for the Continentals, as they start off practically surrounded due to a surprise British flank march.

Oddly enough, although the Americans were not trained much yet and had Provincial and Militia troops outnumbering their Regulars, this early battle in 1776 was the largest battle of the war!

Yeah, Shadow Hunters is an oldy but a goodie, especially when you have a good sized group playing it.

Yeah for sure

The original Clank that came out a couple years ago was in a dungeon crawl setting, so this one is set in outer space.

But itís not just Clank in Space, itís Clank! In! Space! You forgot the exclamation points!

Now imagine an announcer from the old Muppet Show saying it, and youíll get where the name came from. I like both versions, but I think I enjoy the space version more. It has a little bit more going on and I enjoy all the sci-fi references.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Onitama - saw it at GenCon this year, got it and loving it. I played Clank! at GC this year for the first time, ordered the day I got back, relly enjoying it, glad to hear the space version may be better, I have not even used the water expansion yet, but soon I tell ya.
