  1. I like Atomicrops! But I've got it. West of Dead looks like a stylish version of That Kind of Thing Couldn't be less interested in golf though...
  2. Yeah, we were fine with it really! More in comparison with the first game (with half as many players, who also weren't hard-of-hearing and indecisive grandparents...) triumphantly coming in under 30. I will not ever be playing something that might take at least 28 hours.
  3. I played Barenpark* for the second time on Sunday. We were slightly disappointed to take 65 mins instead of the advertised 30. *THAT INSERT
  4. When guns are only available in Care Packages, are those always objectively better than floor loot equivalents? I remember that being the case originally when the Kraber and Mastiff (and maybe L-Star?) were care package only, but nowadays they swap them in and out - do they tweak the stats to make the CP ones, whichever they are, more desirable?
  5. Yeah, I used to like having e.g. a Scout and an R-301 with a massive shared ammo pool.
  6. I'm a bit out of touch for the current situation, but Longbow used to be Heavy, Scout was Light, and Triple Take was Energy
  7. Nice to see those stats now! Quick bit of Googling what random people on the internet think makes me more confused than I started , but it might be: A knock is dealing the damage that causes a player to be knocked, whether or not they're revived. If they die immediately (team wipe) it's not a knock (for this stat, although it counts for quests) A kill is a knock where the target goes on to die OR if the knocker gets taken out then whoever finishes them off gets the kill An assist is dealing damage to a player in a short time period (10s) before your team-mate knocks them, and they then go on to die
  8. I felt a bit sorry for them when the sister turned up with some old but manly men and basically said "that's enough boys, let the grown-ups handle it, you go and play with your frisbee". They'd been apparently fixing it all, with just the two of them, for ages! In a montage*! *great episode for montages! You definitely need a montage.
  9. I found myself thinking last episode that if they were going to have him singing a nursery rhyme in a charming/sinister way they should have chosen a song he actually knew the tune to! I'm sure they could have dredged up a suitable Sokovian classic.
  10. I'm still a bit of a Sleeve Noob, but I have just done a decent like-for-like test of Mayday Standard vs Mayday Premium vs Sleeve Kings - essentially it's made me vow not to get MD Standard ever again, the comparison does them no favours, bit of an air of clingfilm about them. MD Premium vs Sleeve Kings is much less pronounced, I think I'd generally go for Premium but wouldn't feel bad about getting SK for budgetary reasons if something had a ridiculous number of cards. Originally my thinking was games where you have big stacks might benefit from thinner sleeves, but probably that's pretty rare, and I like dispensers anyway (got some of these, smart with cool magnets: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/463817200/card-dispensers-sleeved-unsleeved-cards?ga_search_query=card+dispenser&ref=market_qv_organic_view_1_1).
  11. I finally listened to the wife properly, gave up for Lent, and and have kept it going. One Kickstarter has arrived since then, but that's Officially Allowed. No meetings or reparations, but like a lot of addictions I think it helps having the additional incentive not to break the current streak, when, for example, I find myself browsing certain Facebook Groups again with every sign of enjoyment... We've played quite a lot of games recently, I think this may represent the most productive period in terms of tackling the Many Shelves of Shame in my history!
  12. Since giving up buying boardgames (it's for the best) I've moved into boardgame accessories, and I got a good few wodges of sleeves from https://www.bgextras.co.uk/. Way under the prices I've seen on Amazon, similar to Gameslore, looks like. They only do Mayday, Sleeve Kings or Swan though. I've mostly gone for Mayday as a relatively ubiquitous brand that seems to cover all the sizes well. Got a couple of packs of Sleeve Kings as an experiment - slightly more in a pack, and thickness somewhere between Standard and Premium while still being Standard price, so could be a sweet spot. Whether I actually think sleeves are a good idea is still undecided - if they don't fit quite right they're horrible, but if you have to shuffle things a lot they're amazing! They do slip and slide around the place though, and are harder to stack (I've got a couple of nice wooden dispenser things too). I like the feeling of everything being protected from spills and sticky children!
  13. I don't want it, but only because I've given up buying games for Lent, and possibly for ever.
  14. Very kind of you, thank you! In fact despite wavering I wanted to make sure I didn't miss out, so didn't pause, and have my own keys. But that does mean that anyone wanting any of these is welcome! DM me: Outward - gone to Gabe Valkyria Chronicles 4 - gone to Welrain Endless Space 2 The Wild Eight Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Heart of the Forest Lovecraft's Untold Stories
  15. I think the actual most important thing is that a 5yo bursts into tears at the end of it, as long as we're all striving towards that goal it doesn't really matter how we get there.
