I liked Marvel Legendary, but I'm glad I tried before I bought (or not buying now as the case is). Not much here that I don't get out of other Deck Builders other than the theme, and I'm not a Supers gamer.

The Hobbit... ugh... ju... ugh...

First time playing courtier with 4 players and it was as good as I thought it would be, and as usual T2R is always fun.

Glad you liked Courtier with 4 players. Certainly fun!


Saturday night I had taught my 17 year-old nephew Star Wars X-Wing and Mice & Mystics. He like M&M quite a bit better.

Last night at game night we played:

Cosmic Encounter
with 6 players- I just couldn't get my card's power into use, nor draw cards.

Police Precinct
with 5 players and Dirty Cop option in play. We really loved this one. Dirty Cop barely won as the crime track moved over to fail. We let a gas leak blow up in order to spend more time searching for evidence to solve the murder, so that moved the crime track over it's first time, but then a lot of duplicate colored emergency cards came up and the Urgent marker emergency went as a fail a few times to move the crime track over. We ended up with 9 of the 11 pieces of evidence and the killer was on 4th street and a couple turns from escaping. The Dirty Cop was very subtle with his sabotaging of our plans, but was suspected. But when we had an Internal Affairs card come up and could have outed him, he matched the police card bid of another player and it went on as a non accusation. We were close enough to win that we didn't want to waste an action and 3 doughnuts to accuse him otherwise. Great game!

I'm going to ge t a chance to play Police Precinct in a few weeks at TotalCon here in Massachusetts. From reading your play descriptions Hahma, I'm getting really excited about it.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

It was pretty awesome NYYS. I think you'll like it.

There are different ways to play it as well regarding a Dirty Cop. It comes with 6 good cop cards and 2 dirty cop cards (not to be confused with character cards). We had 5 players and shuffled 1 dirty cop card in with the other 4 good cop cards and then handed them out. So we knew one player was dirty. We could have instead shuffled 1 dirty cop card in with 6 good cop cards and dealt them out with 2 unused. That way we wouldn't have known if there was a dirty cop or not, because we could have all been good. But it would have been fun accusing others. For a 6 player game, 2 dirty cops could be used to have 2 dirty cops for certain, or add them to the 6 good cops and maybe there's 0, 1 or 2 dirty cops, nobody would know and that would be fun. 2 dirty cops in less than 6 player game would be pretty darn tough for the good cops.

Anyway, I look forward to hearing what you and your group thinks of it.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Played Heroscape X 5 on Saturday. Went 3-2

Also played a 4 player game of Flash Point where we won pretty handily. I picked up the "Urban Structures." later that night.

Then we played a game of DC Deck Builder. Arcus dominated in that game. It was the first time that I played it and enjoyed it, although not as much as Marvel Legendary.

Finished up the night with my first play of Zombicide. I loved this game! We played scenario 10 and all 6 of us survived! I love how out of hand the game gets with zombies just spawning all over the place and chasing you all around the board. I was Josh and loved the "slippery" ability. Can't wait to play this great game again.

They're releasing new Pandemic stuff?

New expansions requiring compatability packs means there's not a chance I'm buying them, as it's ridiculous. There's one version of the base game, there's no compatibility needed.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I'm pretty happy with my current Pandemic experience. I would consider buying another expansion, but not if that expansion requires two additional purchases. How absurd.

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

Yeah, Pandemic got a new facelift and an expansion called In The Lab will be coming out. There are two compatibility packs that give the new facelift to your old pandemic cards, including two new character roles.

So I thought, whatever... I'm fine with what I have as is. However, if you plan on buying In The Lab, you need the packs to combine your old games with the new expansion. ::cue in slap to the face::

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I'll probably end up trading/selling my Pandemic / On the Brink and getting the new sets at a very low out of pocket so I'll be fine.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Included among SiserScaper's various birthday present was this little surprise:


There's very little decision making and it's about as silly as it looks, but the Manga makes it appealing to a 10 year old girl. So we took it out and played it. There were a couple odd little wrinkles to the rules and the birthday girl picked it up quickly enough, so that was a good exercise.

I couldn't guess where the giver found it. It's listed as a game from 2001 (BGG average rating: 4.0, which is an average of the one 4.0 rating the game has received) and it was still in shrink.
