📺 Now live: Part 2 of my 🎮 Thimbleweed Park . Audio: eng w/ ger subs. A weird murder mystery crime adventure, with me clicking around cluelessly: twitch.tv/kommadieb

Two quick rounds of ⚔ Wildlands fun with my son. Final score: 1 - 1. Rematch scheduled for today.

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.

The implementation of Clans of Caledonia on BoardGameArena ist very well done. Highly recommended, great game!

Am I burned out of No Man’s Sky already? Is the story worth pursuing? I watched streamers that are much(?) farther than me, but the gameplay doesn’t seem to evolve. Should I try multiplayer mode?

It’s probably a cultural thing that I simply don’t get, but I have to say that I find the BoardGameGeek jerseys that their employees are obviously so happy to wear super [insert list of negative adjectives here]. For me they’d be a huge factor *not* to work for BGG, tbh. 🤨

Sunday :
• 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.

In land I'm still missing one win to complete the "Legendary Hunt" challenges. Came in 2nd like four times over the weekend 🙄

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.

🚂 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.

My local radio station's morning show had a big Good Bye today of their moderation duo of 26 years(!) – and, totally unrelated, I'm streaming 90s music on repeat. 😭

Fabian boosted

Still new to mastodon. Try to check my local feed a lot but it's a bit hit and miss. Anyone got some content creators to follow? Anything OSR would be brilliant, RPGs in general too.

In 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.

in fact, last time somebody asks if I brought my fav game — and I did not. So: next time 🙌

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.
(Maybe I’m just jealous because nobody is playing my fav game with me ;)
