It occurs to me that I need a job that allows for more playing of new games. These games all look intriguing, yet I lack the bandwidth to do anything with them! This is a travesty!! That being said… I am ALL ABOUT ‘Edo’! Can’t wait to pick this up at my LGS!!

I played Edo recently and it is fun, but it feels like a reimagining of something I played years ago. I just can’t remember what it is and it is bugging me. I am looking forward to trying Sky Traders.

Dixit: Odyssey, and Journey are both great starting points. The original game is great of course and all the cards from all the releases simply make the game more enjoyable. But Odyssey adds a better (in my opinion) game board for tracking scores, and very nice organizational place for the cards during gameplay. There are also some good variant rules for team play. Journey builds on the refinements of Odyssey. They both make a great game better from a components standpoint. But if you love Dixit and are a completist, as I am, you will want all the cards… The original, Odyssey, and Journey are all comparably priced.

Question about Dixit and its expansions and standalone sets – what’s the best point of entry for the game?

I’ve heard plenty of good about it, but it seems like there’s multiple places to get started from and I’m just wondering what folks consider the most ideal intro.

Axis & Allies 1941, get in! This (for those who are interested) is the entry level game in the series. I will be adding this one to my collection very soon! 🙂

I HAVE NOW ADDED A REVIEW FOR THIS GAME!

I’ll join with Granny in being interested in Sky Traders, and with FFG’s track record for production values I’d definitely like to know more about this, so will be investigating. The other one there that looks like a fit for our house is Maharani, but not much information on this available yet. More research for me to do… 🙂

Sky Traders looks interesting, and I can never pass up some more Dixit cards.

For Sale is such a fantastic filler, I’m happy to see it’s made it onto the site!

For the Crown is sort of like Chess meets Dominion. I had a chance to play test it at a game meetup.

The game designer looks like a wizard. (in a good way)
