Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played my first game of Dinosaur Island, a 4 Player Medium, using only Herbivores and the Giant Coaster, with the tile that doubled my patron points for that ride, the Ride Engineer, and Security Guard 2. I was leading most of the game. Had I boosted my DNA harvesting earlier, I could have won! I used no Carnivores at all. A fun game and for this play of it an interesting twist.

I played Dinosaur Island once and enjoyed it.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I've been playing Wingspan! It's a medium-weight engine/tableau-builder from new designer Elizabeth Hargrave (female designers in the hotness! ). The game is stunning to look at and has incredible component quality. Each bird in the 170-card deck is unique and all gameplay information is relevant to the bird's real-life traits. My games so far have gone 2 hours, but I expect them to get down to about 1 hour with experienced players.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Wingspan looks to be a great looking game. From a video I watched, it looks like bit plays well too.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Ive played walking dead all out war miniatures game 5x over last weekend. I really love how simple or complex you can make the game using the expansions and advanced terrain rules. My favorite little group to use is probably the inmates because of how their leader can give the other inmates extra actions with his white die roll. Other characters that are some of my faves are negan rick and tyrese. Tyrese and negan are tanks and ricks shoot stat is good too. Ive been hard at work building and 3d printing more fun stuff for my board. Im very excited to be building a modular prison for them. I also have been supplementing minis from the zombicide boxes for even more undead. Im super stoked to paint all the season 2 zombicide inmate zombies to go in my walking dead prison.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

My daughters were finally willing to play a game today (been awhile since they've been interested in playing ).

We played Cacao. Their first time playing and they liked it well enough. I chose it because it's easy to learn and only takes about 45 minutes to play.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I played Terraforming Mars for the first time on Saturday night, with a few expansions (including the Venus one).

Pretty fun game, but way too in-depth for me to understand on the first play-through. If I ever get another shot to play I'm sure I'll like it even better.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Terraforming Mars is one that takes a couple plays to wrap your head around, particularly if you are not well-seasoned in board games.

I haven't tried any of the expansions for it yet but I have heard great things.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I was disappointed when I read the rules for the Venus Next expansion. In the core game, the three terraforming parameters are spelled our for you; oceans, temperature and oxygen. In the Venus Next rules, they just call the new parameter a "terraforming parameter," without telling you what you're doing. Are you decreasing sulfuric acid? Decreasing air pressure or temperature? Adding oxygen?

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I played in my first Keyforge tournament today. It was a sealed deck event, so I got a new deck and went 2-1, coming in 4th out of 7. I only own 4 decks, so most things I saw were new to me.

Keyforge is a brilliant game. The distribution novelty is what got my interest, but it has some brilliant tweaks on the standard resource-management card battling game genre, and it's got enough going on to keep me interested.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Today I played:

DC Deck Building Game (I was Wonder Woman)
Tales of the Arabian Nights (I was Sinbad)
Above and Below

All of the players had never played any of the games before.

What's really great is that I now have another gaming group. So I have Tuesdays every week and Sundays every week, and Saturdays sometimes I'm in Brooklyn with @chas , @Sherman Davies and @kolakoski , and sometimes with the Sunday group.

Tried that and it was a fail. They have painting classes and demos in this store all the time yet I was told they have not bits. But I could buy any one of these great looking sets lining the shelves. I'm not paying $30 for 3 heavy gunners just to use their weapons for a game played with $1 cars. So I'm going make this my first goal once I put my 3D printer together. Thanks for the lead though.
