Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Yesterday played the last two scenarios of the new small Quartermaster's expansion for Red Alert: Space Fleet Warfare. These are linked, and use larger fleets than usual, since the units surviving with at least two ships get to come back into the second battle! With several victory conditions active at once, we had some close and exciting games. They used the two new unit types as well.

Then we did another earlier scenario, and it ended 22-20! Good times.

TMB looks super cool. I'm at the point where I have too many games (Especially heavier ones like TMB is), otherwise I'd seriously consider checking it out. Seen a few reviews that make it look really nice.

G-O said that once you're over the learning curve hump, you should be playing games in 90 minutes or so. It plays up to 4, but my guess is that it shines at 2-3. Or definitely solo, if that's your thing.

It's something like Descent 2.0 meets the LotR LCG meets Quarriors. I know G-O has played the absolute heck out of it, in the few months he's had it. If this sounds interesting to you, I do recommend it. Solo players might especially enjoy it.
Thanks, @Gurei-Ornery !

I'm not surprised. Like I said, it reminds me of the LotR LCG, which I know you also like. It's a great game for you, because you also play solo.

Gasket is my favorite. Though I really do enjoy most of them. My son loves Ghillie.

I was playing Gasket for the first time with @Dad_Scaper . It is one of my favorites also, now. Stanza, the bard, was my favorite before playing Gasket. In the future, I will not try and learn a new character while trying to teach someone this game. Your character really requires most of your attention to develop properly. Love it 1-3 players. I am with D_S in thinking 4 might be pushing it, but if everyone had a solid grasp of their character, it might be fine with 4.

Glad we could get together D_S.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Yeah, I really enjoyed my plays of TMB at GC 2018 with Ken and Co. The only thing that’s kept me away from purchasing is the price (I’m a sucker for expansions, and this game has a lot of them).

Yeah there’s a lot with this game but Chip Theory does a good job with all their player aids.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Had a great six player game of the brand new Star Trek Ascendancy expansions of the Vulcans and Andorians, including Taeblewalker and Sherman Davies. It went 6 1/2 hours, which saw the rise and fall of many empires. I was in a four fleet battle with two Cardassians vs me (Klingon) and my Andorian ally. Finally, although we watched him very carefully, the Vulcan fought a battle and came within one die pip of winning; then he put it away with another battle. We had set the two new factions in the middle of the large table, so we could have maximum interaction with them both.

All six of us were experienced, and enjoyed the possibilities of the game system, win or lose. I may run it again next week, with different players, and again using the two new races!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I haven't regular board games in awhile, just miniatures games, DnD and Marvel Champions living card game. But on Black Friday, I gamed with my old gaming group for a few hours.

I played one that I can't recall the name of, but it was a train game that had elements of Carcassonne, because you lay tiles to expand the play area. Other than that, it's a pick up and deliver game with your train piece picking up a colored cube and needing to deliver it to a corresponding colored town. Fun little game.

The next one was a really cool game called Paladins of the West Kingdom. It's a wonderful worker placement game.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

A group of 4 of us started up a new DND 5th edition campaign a few months ago (I'm the DM, and I'm running a Half-Orc Monk as a member of the group). Spent most of Black Friday playing that and eating pizza. It was a pretty great gaming session.

First a Slaver Capt. we had previously defeated, but escaped, returned in an attempt to ambush us. We were able to turn the tables on him and defeat him for good this time. Then we tracked down and captured an operative of a conspiracy we had uncovered, managed to turn her into a double agent so progress was made on the main story line.

An Owlbear was terrorizing the patrons of a local roadside Inn, so we hunted it down and killed it. The Inn owner is going to have the corpse stuffed and placed on display in the Inn's eating room! Then we helped reopen a long closed mine by liberating it from a group of Giant Spiders, Kobolds, and a Black Wrymling! We found a mysterious ancient structure at the bottom of the mine that we'll need to check out next, but that had to wait until the next gaming session. Hopefully I don't kill the group off on accident, I fear I may have made it too dangerous for our groups player level.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Sounds like fun @Yodaking

How do you run a character while also DMing?
