What are you playing this weekend? (Aug 12)

We’ve finally recovered from our move, and the house is mostly box-free, so we’re getting back to Pandemic Legacy. We got crushed in our first attempt at August, losing in just 5 turns (not rounds, but turns… I played exactly once), so we’ll be giving that another shot.

What are you playing this weekend?

@HarryCallaghan79: BSG is much better with the expansions. The fact that there are more skill cards in the expansions, which cuts down on shuffling and adds variety is huge. The expansions also have great new characters to play too. We always use the Cylon Fleet Board and CAG (among some other items)in our games. Makes Cylon attacks more constant and makes playing a pilot character more interesting too. There’s some other stuff which make the game better and by the same token some expansion stuff we never use. Trust me, the expansions are worth owning.

Do you think Battlestar Galactica is better with expansions or without? I have been thinking of getting Pegasus.

Played a couple of games of Deep Space D-6. Nice little solo game. I hope to get in a few more games of it and try the other ships.

Going to attempt to get in another Pandemic:Legacy–my daughter needs to be in the right mood for it to be fun for everyone. We will see. Otherwise some more Dominion. We don’t have a lot of time this weekend.

Our group played Sentinels of the Multiverse, Dead of Winter, and Munchkin Panic. We had a lot of fun, although one person definitely carried the team. Regrettably for the rest of us, the star player of the day was also the Betrayer in Dead of Winter–we were getting eaten as the colony was overrun while she made her getaway 🙂

Started the weekend with Napoleonic Wars on Friday (9/2). Planning on bringing Krosmaster: Quest and a few others to the table today (9/4), which also happens to be my birthday. Hopefully I can get something to the table on Monday (9/5) too.

Capt_Ron – I haven’t played traders and barbarians in a while but last week we played Settlers of America at our FLGS. My daughter loves history, knows Catan, but isn’t always up to play a game. She loved it so we might be adding that to our collection sometime soon.
