Board game night


#349

Yeah just let me know when it’s happening and I will try to be around/


#350


Seems to be silly cheap again, if anyone wants to pick it up.

Though we have not managed to play it much it was an interesting co-operative deckbuilding type of game.


#351

all these sales on board games when I have no money :frowning: I might just splurge anyways…


#352

@PeteMcc @Fraggles @Vandem @snake153 @Gnuffi + everyone else interested

Think we could make some Gremlins happen today?

Or perhaps @Koroth would like to play some Mysterium? or @Danacscott could be available for Food Truck?

I’ll be busy studying the whole day, but at home. So I can definitely turn my study break into Gremlins or any other game. Would love that, actually, so let me know!

C’MON GUYS IT’S SUNDAY I CAN’T STAND READING ANTHROPOLOGY FOR THE WHOLE DAY HAVE MERCY LET’S GET TOGETHER AND FORGET I HAVE A HUGE PAPER TO DELIVER ON WEDNESDAY


#353

Gremlins is free this weekend, so we could get @Danacscott into a game of that stil, if she can find 3gig of space on her internal drive.


#354

Yes. Please.

F, I won’t be checking Chrono – gonna focus on studying – but please message me on Riot when/if anyone is free and I’ll jump right in. :blush:


#355

I’ll have to open le Steam. Running giveaway in 1 1/2 hrs, then 3 hrs post that time, have to go out and meet my mom. So here’s hoping our timezones coincide somehow. :heart_decoration:


#356

How long is a game? I can play now but its getting late for me


#357

Depends a little on how much @Vandem and @coralinecastell are able to screw each other over. If it’s generally smooth sailing then 30-45 minutes for a medium game, if they get all the right card at all the right times it can take upwards of 1.5-2h.

Also how much of those resources they waste on just keeping me down.


#358

yeesh, well like I said I can play now but if it goes to a longer game I may need to bail, or if you have enough people I can sit this one out.


#359

@Vandem and I have never done anything other than hug, appreciate and support one another and I find your rude accusations quite trite. FAKE PROPAGANDA PEOPLE DON’T LISTEN TO THE SWEDE

@PeteMcc we’ll set up a short game just for you :yellow_heart: we can make a timed room, so whoever get the most cogs in, say, 30 minutes or rounds (can’t remember the setting), wins. :blush:


#360

@coralinecastell you coming to the game?


#361

1st: sorry for running a bit late today, you guys. Had to feed the chomnk and he doesn’t eat if you don’t cheer him on a bit. Literally not joking. We’ve been cheering him on for 11 years now. Aaaanyways.

2nd: had a lot of fun today, congrats to @Vandem for being the worst person to have ever played Gremlins and ruining the day for everyone! :smiley:

Also, “ruin Coraline’s day” is now part of the official Gremlins rules. Just check the Official Rulebook. You’re looking for page 2, paragraph 4, item 2:

The main objectives of the game are:

  • Gather cogs
  • Ruin Coraline’s day
  • Earn money
  • Earn votes (…)

It goes on from there.


#362

Yeah thanks everyone for accommodating my delightful time zone.
Don’t worry about being late @coralinecastell , we just wanted to make sure you saw the message so we follow through on the official rules.
Learning the rules especially page 2, paragraph 4, item 2 was great. I especially enjoyed that play on about round 5 where I took 200 dollars and 3 cogs from you followed by promptly sending you to jail even though I could have spread those penalties out… ah the memories.


#363

LMAO you guys will be the end of me :joy:

OK, so I tried it. Really enjoyed the game, so much content to read and understand though. You really need to play it regularly to get the most out of it.

Oh and the winning music is probably worth the price of entry alone!

Edit: In case you haven’t heard it


#365

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!


#366

Thanks so much for your reply, I’ve heard only good things for Forbidden Island and Splendor, I haven’t tried those 2 which I know for sure I would love to learn and play.

I sincerely suggest give Tabletopia a play if you can (on Steam), it’s free, over 600+ games with smart AIs too. lots of Solo games. I purchased Wingspan DLC, have not subscribed to Tabletopia yet. I recommend Everdell on Tabletopia (Everdell is free, the rules are super easy to learn), or Crystallo, it’s beautiful.

Blockquote
Anyone know of a good multiplayer Chess game I can bookmark? I’d enjoy learning to play properly if I had a willing and patient soul to play it with me. :slight_smile:

I know I am super late, I am terribly sorry. Onitama is a super good game for my android phone (I have not tried multi-players for online, but the AIs are just fine as I love solo). It’s very thoughtful and in my opinion better than Chess as its light. Free to download on Google Play store


#367

Big appreciated hug for the reply. No worries on the lateness - absentedminded squirrels can’t throw stones you know? Hee hee.

I’ll have to see if that’s available for iPhone as well. Tabletopia sounds intriguing. Thanks for the tips. ^^

Anyone up for a round or two of Carcassonne this upcoming Saturday?
