Played Nothing Personal with a great group of friends. Now, we are enemies. That’s the price of gaming.

On Saturday we finally finished off the second run through Pathfinder ACG: Rise of the Runelords and found those final scenarios to be easier the second time through–probably because we knew what was coming. I’m looking forward to starting Pathfinder ACG: Skull & Shackles weekend after this coming one.

Sunday my brother and I spent about four hours playing through Battle of Five Armies. I don’t have any experience with War of the Ring so it took a while to get the turn phases down. I’m expecting the next playthrough to be under two hours. Great game by the way. It will more than satisfy me until the reprint of War of the Ring is released, and even after it seems like Battle of Five Armies is unique enough to not be replaced by it’s bigger sibling.

Got 2 games of Splendor in under the wire.

Note to self, when traveling with games, ensure your destination has a surface to play games on. This was a possible, but challenging game to play on a king sized bed.

Last night I played a game of Splendor with my wife (she won 16-10), which is always fun.
I followed this with a solo game of Shadows of Brimstone, using the City of the Ancients core set. It’s a very cool game, and I look forward to more chances to play it.

Quiet weekend at home with the family, but looking forward to next weekend as I’m going on a cabin trip. We’ll be 8 hard core gamers and a few of us will be going on Thursday and stay until Monday. Looking at the games people hope to play we’ll need that time…

Broke out Magnum Opus again, and also played several games of Coup and went 1-1 against the xenos in Legendary Encounters. A good gaming weekend.

Monthly gaming event included Hanabi and a five-player game of Mage Knight: The Board Game. And yes, the MK game took as long as everybody said it would. Not sure how often we will do that again.

Alright…got a lot of rounds of Star Realms in this weekend, both analog and digital. All my kids really enjoy it. Something about it wants me to play another round. Very addicting.

Also, the kids and I also got a round of Caverna: The Cave Farmers again..yes!

I also played a couple of rounds of King of Tokyo with Power Up and a round of Qwirkle with my seven year daughter.

Good weekend of gaming, if I do say so myself 🙂
