  1. So my teenage daughter (my usual gaming buddy) has a sleepover with 3 of her friends. They wake up this morning in her room with literally dozens of amazing games of all shapes and sizes (see BGG link below), so what do they decide to play?
  2. I wasn't aware you could see everything listed online in advance. Suppose I should have been, really...
  3. Yes, the phone version seemed like a non-game, tbh.
  4. If it helps, Pandemic is one of the very few games my wife IS prepared to play.

    Why on earth did the guy pass on face damage at 1:24? Just a misplay? At this level???
  6. We'll be there Sat & Sun this year - daughter is trying out the Splendor tournament on Sat so I'll spend the day shopping, then we'll play stuff non-stop on Sunday. I might try and sell some stuff in the Bring & Buy, but if anyone wants anything below at exciting pick-up-at-the-Expo prices let me know! Nina & Pinta £15 Cottage Garden £15 Haru Ichiban £10 One Night Ultimate Werewolf £10 Tides of Time £7 Gubs £5 Welcome to the Dungeon £5 Palm Island £10
  7. Daughter and I tried out Viticulture today over lunch at Sheffield's shiny new boardgame cafe. Lovely experience, friendly staff, good food and a decent bar The game was superb too - we were worried we wouldn't finish in time, but it turned out she had a secret plan to whup my ass, so that was all fine. Definitely going on the shopping list, I can see why so many people have loved it for so many years. Loved the "seasons" mechanic as a conceit for the turn structure, and the "just enough randomness to keep you on your toes" of the visitor cards. Worked great with 2 players, would be awesome with more.

    Prioritise crafting Whizbang, as that effectively gets you 27 well-constructed Standard decks for free, and refreshes with each expansion. I've just realised today how much fun he is to use when new stuff comes out. Personally I don't spend any real money any more, but if you want to invest a bit then the pre-expansion deal is probably your best bet. Out of interest, do you mainly play on PC?
  9. Just heard the item on R4 Broadcasting House this morning supposedly about Wingspan. British Museum "historical games" enthusiast dismisses it as too complex & fiddly compared to Ludo. Then another presenter described as "quite into boardgames" is wheeled in to give his perspective and immediately tells us how much he loves Monopoly. I hope Quins is penning a furious "I demand a right to reply" email as I type!
  10. Not a bad film, but not great by MCU standards. My biggest problem (and having not read them I understand that this could just be an inevitable consequence of the comics) was that she got her powers by

    Right, I am focused now. Rank 5 reached with nearly 4 weeks to go, time to hit Legendary before everything cycles out. Rank 4 my best so far, got to be able to beat that this time... Edit: winrate 58% and rising...
  12. Bumping this thread to leave this here. If you've played the game you'll love it and the app is great (if not cheap). If you haven't then you should, it's a solid gold classic.
  13. My goodness. I think he needs to check the definition of "geek". I'm shocked that Quins would stoop to this
