The Shins’ “Australia” is still superb #currentlylistening
Two quick rounds of ⚔ Wildlands fun with my son. Final score: 1 - 1. Rematch scheduled for today. #boardgames
The one problem I have with 🏴 Clans of Caledonia. If you want to win, it’s all about fulfilling contracts. I understand, the crux is how to do as many as possible, and the clans support many different ways; but still, in my 25-ish games in the vast majority of cases the winner was at least tied regarding the amount of contracts fulfilled. What I want from a future expansion: make it so I can win even with 2 (or more) contracts behind. #boardgames
• Century: Eastern Wonders. More interesting than Spice Road. Well interactive. Lost due to early mistakes.
• Deus. Classic now. Very confrontational. Close finish. 2nd.
• KeyForge. Way too long. Took almost 2h for us two newbies. Lost 0:3 forged key.
Fun day. Baaad performance 😖
Looking forward to try the new KeyForge base set with my son. Gonna be hard,let's see where/if I can dumb it down a little, but we both are really into the art and theme. #boardgames
Tonight I dreamed that BoardGameGeek finally fully switched to a new design. Funnily not the one they have on a couple of pages already, but a completely new one. I don't remember if I liked it or not, but I think as was glad that the old one was gone for good.
IRL I like the new one as-is, just wish it was snappier – and on 100% of the pages. #boardgames
🚂 My First Ticket to Ride: had trouble (again) giving my son a win. He's playing good, and I don't even try hard, but it seems that efficient route building is something my adult mind just does automatically. At least we tied – which happens a lot in this game if you give each player the same amount of turns.
In #boardgames we played Deus + Egypt expansion. Gaming pal asked for "better games next time, please", but I really enjoy Deus, although I came in last after a very rough beginning. Also: negative points at the end of Can't Stop Express — again. Loser, but I had fun.
Seems we have a “will only play Terraforming Mars“-player in our group now. I mean, it’s fine and he usually finds people to play with. It’s only a bit awkward that he sits at his half set up TM while everybody else is doing the usual 5 minute what-do-we-want-to-play-today standup. #boardgames
(Maybe I’m just jealous because nobody is playing my fav game with me ;)
