What are you playing this weekend? (Nov 9)

Posted by Jim {Power Gamer} | 9-Nov-12 | 36 comments

We’re going to have a couple game nights this weekend and we’ve got three games on our playlist: Mice & Mystics, Mage Wars and DungeonCraft. We’ll be posting an article next week with our impressions of DungeonCraft and hopefully have a full review of Mage Wars up by the end of the month. This year has truly been a great one for board games!

What’s on your playlist this weekend?
(speaking of playlists, we did find it was fun to listen to the Star Wars soundtrack while playing X-Wing Miniatures Game!)

We played a bunch of 4 player Lord of the Rings: LCG while the wives attended a Baby Shower. Really looking forward to the new sets.

Played Keyflower and Pandemic w/ On the Brink last night. Keyflower was very good. Lots of tough decisions.

My wife and I enjoyed a (fast) two-player game of Dominion Seaside and then a very interesting Seaside and Dark Ages mix. During that game, I found myself using the Graverobber to turn Rats into Gold quite a few times. Fun! Despite all of that, my wife handily beat me both times. *sigh*

We didn’t get to play as much this weekend as I had hoped, but we did get to play Family Fluxx as well as try out Eight-Minute Empire, which was great fun. Oh, and I had a solo play of Rune Age — and lost.

The 9th was my birthday – and as such, I got some gaming in this weekend.
Pulled off plays of Hot Rod Creeps, Hey, That’s My Fish!, Space Hulk: Death Angel, and Ticket it Ride: Europe (We’ve had the U.S. version for a long time and were really looking forward to Europe – really like this one!). There’s still time tonight… I might try to get in a play of Mice & Mystics

Yes, The Settlers of Catan was played! With five people, so the extension was needed. But we also played Roborally and Party & Co. It was a weekend full of fun!

I ended up playing five games of Heroscape. We followed this with a game of Cyclades and a game of SmashUp. A nice gaming week-end!

We played Risk 2210 A.D., gave Apostate a beat down in Sentinels of the Multiverse, played Cards Against Humanity with both expansions, and capped off the night with a game of Ninjato. Plenty of fun and variety were had!

Me and two of my friends had a go with The Castles of Burgundy, which turned out to be just as much fun as one would expect from a game of this genre and coming from Ravensburger! One glance of the boxart and back of the box was enough to tell us just how much of a blast it would be to play this game, so all you who understand Swedish can look forward to a very positive review of this game if you’re a follower of my channel on YouTube (link available on my profile) 🙂

Going to get Cosmic Empires to the table this weekend. I picked it up at Essen and it feels like a light and faster playing Twilight Imperium.
