Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Sentinels has a good mix of skill and luck, IMO. It's a game where you can learn to maximize the card play in the cards you have, but that doesn't control the order in which the cards come up, whether you see a card at all in a given game, or the order of how the villain cards come up either. The only real difference between Sentinels and Pathfinder when it comes to skill and luck, IMO, is that most of the choices in Pathfinder are fairly obvious to me, whereas there can be a lot more strategic nuance to Sentinels (much like Heroscape).

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

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

@japes I am the same way when it comes to competition. I can usually dial it back with newer/younger players, or dial it up when I play dok or I'm in a tournament, but in general I play to win.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played Railways of Nippon yesterday. Might be my favorite Railways map, especially for 2 players, because most of the spaces are either water or mountain making expansion expensive. I was able to secure a one point win in a nail biter.

To keep the theme going, we opened up Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan and began the arduous application of stickers to the blocks. Set it up to play, but decided we didn't have enough time to finish it and since the kids were finishing up a Pokemon tournament we decided to play Scoville.

Before we left the store, we decided to open a box of Magic Ultimate Masters because we needed a fix. We pulled a Liliana of the Veil box topper and a normal Liliana. Just those 2 cards more than paid for the box. All in all more than doubled the money for the box in value with about 20 cards being worth $15 or more. The box topper was $225 by itself. Most of them sold last night. Crazy.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Sekigahara is a wonderful game! I was perhaps never so proud as when I won my second game of it!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Forgot to mention that I have a plan for 40K Gaslands using Speed Freeks models with Gaslands rules. I think it will look pretty cool and cater to the 40K crowd. I have 130% upscaled templates which should help with the scale difference.

I've got various designs I've tinkered with over time as well. If you ever want to compare notes, let me know. I really have no financial ambitions with game design, it's just a fun project for me and something that I want to result in things that are fun to play.

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

Didn't we discuss this before. I think we were suppose to exchange notes at one point. It must have been right before my accident and your family expansion and we both lost track of it.
