Iron Curtain. Super short card-driven (think Twighlight Struggle; 13 Days) 2p area control game. Won by 1p. Mostly fine, a bit weird color choices, don't think I'd be interested in the long term. #boardgames
Another first: Five Tribes (incl. expansion? Not sure.). I can absolutely see why this is getting so much praise. Simple and elegant core, crunchy, variable, and expandable. #boardgames
On the table yesterday: Paper Tales (good, not super impressive) and Carson City (great, but hard — for me — to play well). #boardgames
Note to self: running out of cards in round three of ⚛️ 51st State is not wise. Had a VP engine running, but lacked resources and card variety in round 3 and 4 so that my initial huge lead melted away and I came in last in the end – with only 5 buildings.
Fun game nonetheless, even though my pals stated to prefer Imperial Settlers for its streamlined mechanisms and friendlier theme 🙄 #boardgames
Only 2 games of Port Royal ⛵ with my kids sneaked in this week. So nothing fancy to show off. Instead let me point you to another digital game (): Dungeon Cards, a pixel graphics roguelike from an indie developer. Fun!

Just played Baseball Highlights 2045, the app, again. This game has been on my wishlist for years! But: no interest in my group + no German version (for family) + US import pretty expensive == 😔
Why is no German publisher picking this up? ⚾ 🤖

Mini local game night. Lost 3 games in a row of the always-fun Port Royal ⛵ after winning the first very luckily. Also: DnD Inn-Fighting 🤜, a dice fest with more cleavage than viable strategies; but nice custom dice. 🎲 #boardgames
Welcome to Centerville (GMT). Yeah, probably too long — but also easy, a bit mean, point-saladʼy, with a pleasant city building/political theme. Works with beer and pretzels. #boardgames
Santa Maria and Azul at today's Pegasus game day. Both super dry and thinky. I feel I need to throw some dice at Cthulhu now... #boardgames
My #boardgames of the month April 2017:
- Scythe (finally on the table again; 8/10) 🤖
- Clans of Caledonia (same; 8/10) 🥃
- New Bedford (always fun for me, despite some flaws; 7/10) ⛵
