I've played so many board games this past weekend. My weekend started empty and then suddenly was filled with last minute games.
- Learned Mah jong. I've wanted a set for a long time, now I really want a set. The tiles are so thereputic to touch and play with
- Learned the ice house game Volcano. Now I want an ice house set, however they are only selling indiviual colors at $7-8 each. Volcano requires 6. I'm not paying $42 for volcano. They sell a 4 color carboard set for $5, but that only gets me 4 colors and they have bases. I might make my own set until they start selling multi color sets again, or buy the cardboard set to give loony labs money and then make my own. I'll decide.
- Carcassone Hunters and Gathers
- Space Munchkin
- Brawl (briefly)
- Barbarosa. This is a great game, though it has some balance issues and some other problems which I think I can work out in a few more players. Much fun. Plus you get to stick arrows in things (ARROWED!) and what game could be bad where you get to stick arrows in things?
I had an amazing amount of fun. I enjoyed the wonderful company of all three game playing groups and I thank the Saturday groups for putting up with me being tired. I think I'm all board gamed out, however and will be skipping the games I've been invited to tomorrow (I appologise to that group, I would have loved to joined you too) but maybe I could get them to play barbarossa or 1KBWC but probably not.
EDIT: looney labs seems to encourage people making their own sets, so I will and then try to get people with money addicted. :)
