What are you playing this weekend? (March 7)

Posted by Jim {Power Gamer} | 6-Mar-14 | 45 comments

We really enjoyed our time with Paperback, so we’ll be playing more of that this weekend. Beyond that we’ll probably just wait to see what our group feels like playing.

What are you playing this weekend?

@Granny

I usually take a day or two off for the 2 local cons each year to get max value out of it 🙂

Although I’ve never tried the original I think the dice version is absolutely doing what intended, a very nice, quick filler and a friend of mine who has played both clearly prefers the dice version.

In fact one of my favorite moments this weekend was the 2. game where I got to roll twice:
1. 4 dynamites and 1 arrow
2. 3 dynamites, 1 arrow and 1 gatling

I didn’t win that one…

@inmarg Holy Double-Take, Batman! Your Friday looks like a good weekend. Kudos!

BTW How did you like Bang! The Dice Game? I just tried it this week for the first time and thought it was far more enjoyable than the card version. Many die-hard Bang! fans do not like it, but I felt it made the game exactly what was intended all along… a fun party game.

@Jay Atkinson I played my first game of Space Cadets: Dice Duel this weekend as well. I found it to be much better than the board game. I must not hate dice after all. They work well with non-strategy games. Designers seem to be realizing that “party games” don’t need to have all luck removed. I think Garfield’s King of Tokyo has actually shifted the industry a bit.

All I could get in was a rousing game of Space Cadets: Dice Duel. Such an intense game!

Ended up trying out Fairy Tale, Quarriors, and played a game of Lords of Waterdeep. Also received Mr. Card Game in the mail, but haven’t had a chance to play it yet. I feel your pain, garbled.

Ended up playing some Hi Ho Cherrio, Grape Escape, Mario Memory, Cthulu Dice, Hanabi, Rattlesnake and Chutes and Ladders.

Hanabi seems to work well for my 5 year old, although some more playtime will be in order to determine its legs for the little one. I remember wanting a copy of Chutes and Ladders when I was a kid, and jumped at the chance to buy it for my daughter when I found it on sale.

I can stomach Candy Land and Hi Ho Cherrio and the like, but I have discovered I really dislike Chutes and Ladders. The board is confusing to the kids, I don’t like the spinner (I replace it with a die) and it has no real learning value. Quite a bummer. Still, they like it, so it gets played.

Game night is over (never schedule with spring DST, btw). LOVED One Night Werewolf and I won the last game (8 players) as the Tanner (a first for anyone after 10 games). This was even better with the smartphone app providing the moderator.
Other games included:
Caverna, Catan, Kingsburg, Pillars of the Earth, Werewolfe (30+ players, wolves won both), Battlestar Galactica, Something Different, Star Fluxx, Cash n Gun$, Shadow Hunters, and Liar’s Dice. Fun times!

I have had Robinson Crusoe for a month or so and after looking through the rules quite a bit, finally decided to give it a try this weekend with some solo play to learn it before teaching it. Played first scenario 3 times and won one of them.

Edit: Last night (Monday) got to play Snowdonia and Vikings

I’m researching my next game purchases:

The Manhattan Project
What’s he Building in There?

Then if I still have time, I will be playing Heroes of Metro City to distract myself so I won’t go nuts while waiting for the upcoming expansion and bonus packs.

Trying to start my little one on games so a few patient games of Uno are in store. Also have several new games that I am hoping to get to the table with a decidedly more gamer audience. Namely: Suburbia, Libertalia, Core Worlds, and Ticket to Ride. Yes I know I’m getting on the Ticket to Ride wagon late but better late then never right?

GAME NIGHT! Will update the full list later, but we played Caverna & Telestrations last night and tonight I expect One Night Werewolfe to be played a lot (speaking of which, why are none of these Ultimate Werewolfe games listed here? They are a highlight of my monthly game nights.)
