1. Fog of Love – 2
2. X-Wing Second Edition – 4
3. Revolution! – 1

Introduced a complete noob to X-Wing last night with a simple game of 1 X-Wing v 2 TIEs. Over two hours later he finally beat the more experienced player, and now seems hooked!

A 2+ player card game of deduction and risk-taking. Each character card has a points value and a special ability, and you need to use them in order to finish the token with the highest points value. Simple to learn but really fun. I’ve only played it with two but I imagine it’s better with more (title).

Sal and I played this a couple of times in the Short game length and felt it was just getting going as the game ended, so when Gaz and Jem came to visit we thought we’d up it to the Medium length. This was a mistake. Two extra (new) players plus the extended game length meant it took far too long. But we learnt something I suppose.

Card game where you need to gain one card from each of five different categories by challenging a random opponent around the table to a particular challenge like skill, luck, courage, etc. It didn’t really grab us, unfortunately.

5. Dinosaur Island – 1
6. Game Off – 1
7. Dixit – 1

In this the first player chooses a card from his hand (all pictures) and tells a short story in a couple of sentences. The other players have to guess what they think it is. Everyone else then chooses a card from their hand that could also feasibly be mistaken for this story.

The clever part is that you don’t get any points if no one guesses right, but you don’t get any if everyone guesses correctly either, so you need to make it reference the card somehow, without being too obvious.

It’s quite short too so doesn’t outstay its welcome.

1) Forbidden Island - 3
2) Fluxx - 2
3) Trivial Pursuit (Harry Potter Edition) - 3
4) Codenames Duet - 3
5) Dixit - 3

Another game of Dixit, this time with actual sentences rather than one or two word setups - much more fun this way, it seems.

Love Letter's a great game, one of our mainstays - especially with the kids, although Olly seems to be much better at the deductive reasoning side of it than Izzy.

I played the Baron to trade hands, received a guard in return, played it, then immediately forgot what I'd given the other player. It was the Princess.

What happens when 'Mafia' meets '20 Questions' and they love each other very much. One player is the secret "Insider" and unbeknownst to anyone else also knows what the mystery word is. He has to help the other players get towards the answer, but must try to avoid being detected.

Mrs Fop can always be depended upon to make a similar move and forget entirely what she gave away. (Though you trade with a Prince I think).

Played two games tonight and won them both! I faced two similar First Order lists. I flew Luke Skywalker and three Red Squadron Veterans (all X-Wings).

First 159-92 against Kylo Ren (TIE Silencer), Major Vonreg (TIE Baron) and two generic TIE/sf. Blasted Vonreg off the board, got half points on Kylo, and destroyed an SF in the last round.

Second game was a very tight affair (the only main difference was Midnight in the TIE/fo instead of the two TIE/sf) and we didn’t score any points for the first half of the game. Then I got lucky with dice and my opponent made a mistake, landing on a gas cloud. Ended up winning 63-46.

Played one game at my local store yesterday. Flew my 4X list with Luke and three Reds, got utterly smashed by ABBX, which was a bit disheartening.

A mate came down with his son and both bought the core set, so I helped them play a simple X v 2T game. They now seem hooked so our community is growing!

10. Startups - 1

Quick small box game where you try to invest in hipster start-ups by drawing and playing cards. But watch out! At the end of the game, the person with the most shares in a particular company gets payments from everyone else with an interest in the business. Probably benefits from more than four players, but has lots of possibilities for beneficial and self-defeating "take that!" actions.

11. Tarantel Tango - 1

From the people who created the legendary "Cockroach poker" comes this agonisingly frustratingly hilarious simple game. Play the top card from your deck, place in the correct spot on the web, and make the required animal noise. Get it wrong, add everything already played to your deck. If a spider card is played, everyone slams the centre, with the last person collecting everything. Simple to play, beautifully designed, and I was utterly crap at it. In my defence I was totally sober. I might get it myself for late nights on camp.

Um - do I need to cut this list down to 10 or are we using non-decimal counting systems?

You need to remove one to add another, yes.

What if you then play the removed one more and want to add it back? Do you have to keep a secret tally of those outside the list? This is very poorly thought through.

No, you start again. So think carefully about what you want to add or remove. I would suggest something that you’re unlikely to play again.

Stop playing so many games basically. It’s 10x10, not 49x1!

Noted. I'll create a list for here and will shift to the other thread for the most part. :)

Spent the evening at the Dice Cup and played some games of X-Wing. Flew Lando, Luke and Ten in the first two games and lost to Resistance Poe and A-Wings, then beat an XXAB Rebel beef list.

Won my final game flying a Decimator, Darth Vader and another TIE Advanced against Boba in Slave-1 and two Mandalorian Fang Fighters.

There’s a tournament on Sunday but I can’t make it. :(

Played a medium-length game with Sal and took just over an hour as we both knew what we were doing (for the main part). Sal won 60-41 as she actually paid attention to the objectives and I decided to research large carnivores instead which meant I had to spend all my money on park security or the visitors would get eaten.

I still think a short game is best to teach people, especially for four players (sorry Gaz and Jem), but medium seems a nice length for two players for now.

First time using the 3.5 card pack and it’s a much better game. Sal didn’t die at all and managed to gain the “kill 25 zombies” win condition which I’ve never seen before!

We played the first proper scenario (High School Sweethearts) today. I was a school teacher with long blond hair, a counterfeit watch and a sensuous voice. Sal was a clumsy, squeaky-voiced entrepreneur with great fashion sense.

We didn’t get married or engaged, but we stayed together. Sadly I ended up unhappy in the relationship as I failed one trait goal and fell just short in my relationship destiny goals, but Sal fulfilled all of hers so ended up happy!

Played a solo game of the first scenario from the core campaign to learn the mechanics so I can host a TTS version. As with learning any new reasonably complex game it involved a lot of stopping, starting, reading the rules reference, realising I'd done something wrong, etc, etc. But I think it does a really good job of giving a sense of creeping dread. I had some terrible picks from the chaos bag and ended up dying and going insane on the same turn. Not sure how far I got but it didn't feel very far. I think it'll be better with another player.

I had some terrible picks from the chaos bag and ended up dying and going insane on the same turn. Not sure how far I got but it didn't feel very far. I think it'll be better with another player.


I'll be up for giving that a go on TTS.

Cool! I’ve got one other interested too. You need two core sets for 3-4 players but that isn’t a problem on TTS. :)

Essentially Who/What/Where am I? But every one gets one guess at the answer, first person to shout at the correct answer wins, so go risky early, or wait until you have more information, but someone else jumps in

3) Chameleon - 3
Played this for about 4 hours today, not really sure how best to score it, so based each game on how many people were playing (4, then 5, then a different 4)

4) Mapominoes Europe - 1

Dominoes with countries, you can only place countries that border each other together, very hard when you get Vatican City, or Iceland say!

Played another solo game of the first scenario as Roland (died) then today started the campaign properly in a two-player game with Sal. I was Roland again and Sal was Wendy (survivor class). Roland went insane thanks to some very bad luck with chaos pulls, but Wendy managed to get to a situation where she could resign and survived until the next scenario.

It was hard going but an enjoyable challenge. Not sure Sal agrees though. :D

Bought this for Sal’s birthday. It’s a cooperative deck builder for 2-4 players much in the vein of Arkham Horror, but a more simplified ruleset and different gameplay features. We found it a bit easy but then realised we had interpreted a couple of rules wrong which is probably why! There are seven game packs in total (one for each school year) and we played the first two today, but we will probably restart next time.

Sadly realised it’s going to be almost impossible to complete this challenge now. :(

Played it properly this time. Still won but it was more difficult! Next time we’ll play 3rd year.

We got to year 5 before it became super tricky, need to go back to it really, but Gloomhaven took over.

Third year done. Still weren’t in much danger of losing but it’s introduced more complexity and was more engaging, I thought.

We failed 4th year! Barty Crouch Jr fucked us with not allowing us to remove villain control markers from the final location. It’s introduced house dice and some interesting new mechanics now. Quite a bit harder!

After a two player boardgame to give my brother for his birthday. He already has patchwork and love letter - anyone got any two-player favourites?

"Lost Cities" is an engaging do-I-cut-my-losses-or-press-on two player card game.
"Fox in the Forest" is a beautifully designed Whist variant.

Lovely, thank you! I'm going to suggest those two and Parks to his wife (the other player), and will see what she says.

And may invest in something for myself and Mrs Fop. Thanks again.

We played through Pandemic Legacy as a twosome, and it worked well.

Chess ;)

Also Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride and Star Realms are great 2-player games (the latter being pretty cheap, too).

Cheers! Star Realms is new to me, will gizzit a look.

Also, Pandemic Legacy is bloody expensive - has there been a corona rally on its pricing?

£50 from Zatu games

https://www.board-game.co.uk/product/pa ... on-1-blue/

Which is pretty much standard pricing. Board games be spendy.
