Do you know where you can get the Squid expansion? I just got this game and love it, and am really eager for some squids.
I got mine in the BGG store, but it looks like they are out. I don't see it available on Amazon either, and it's out of stock at both Coolstuff and MiniatureMarket.com. I did see on the Stronghold games website that more are expected to be available late in the first quarter of 2013.

I got my squids in a trade on BGG. Bought the 5-6 expansion from their marketplace.

Squids are rough, especially when playing against a ruthless 6 year-old.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Good chance Survive will make it to the table at TotalCon in a couple weeks. Looking forward to it!

Got in another partial game of 51st State with my son last night (bed time snuck up on us too quickly). The game can be frustrating to start as it can be difficult to get your engine going (or even figure out whay type of strategy you should take). But once things get moving you're pulling all kinds of 'moves' and scoring tons of points. This was especially true with my son last night. He was having a hard time getting any cards into his tableu to begin with and I jumped out to a pretty heafty lead. Then, about 5 turns later, he goes nuts and closes what was a comfortable 15 point gap down to just 5 points in one round. Fortunately for me we had to stop since it was a school night (end game trigger is when someone reaches 30+ points during the Count VPs Phase), but it left him thirsty for more. Always a good thing.

Game is getting better with each play!

I tend to find it difficult to execute Incorporate actions, as it seems not enough opportunities exist to allow you to build your state.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Yeah if your faction's 'default' Incorporate distance isn't at least 2, it can be real tough to get going (as was the case for PJ last night). But then he got his hands on a couple of cards that produced a 1 distance Incorporate token each Production Phase (which cost only a 1 Incorporate distance token to get it out there), and then he was off to the races.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Another way around getting hung up like that with incorporating locations is to initiate Redevelopments... Of course, it means you lose your previous card, but if you can get the card type to match, and you can't afford the range, it saves you from that issue because redevelopments ignore the range value.

Nyys we seem to have similar interests this year, being both Seasons and Survive. I'll bring both of those so you can bring some more interesting things I don't own.

Like Superheroes and Comics?
