Since joining The Boardgamers League, I’ve definitely been playing a lot more games that I wouldn’t normally have played. I’m really enjoying the experience and atmosphere. This month, I’m hoping to add to my MTG play with the release of Shadows Over Innistrad. I’ve fake drafted online a few fun black/red and white/blue decks this week. Beyond that, here is what I’ve been playing this week:
Nefarious – played a 3-player game and immediately went for a second. This game was easy to learn and had wonderful art!
Allegiance: A Realm Divided – I have played several sessions of this game since my kickstarter set was sent to me three weeks ago, and all but one of the friends we introduced this game to has gone out to buy it themselves. Allegiance is a really solid, wonderful character driven card game. So far I have to say that the ranger seems to be one of the strongest characters.
Pathfinder Card Game: Wrath of the Righteous – we finally made it to level 6!!
Quarriors – it’s always fun chucking a handful of dice. We even got the teenage girl to play! Yes, successful game night in the Smith household 😉
D&D 5e – Thursday night game only. Again we were fighting fire creatures with immunity to (yep, you guessed it) all my fire spells. Good thing I was able to twin haste on our bard and warlock. Bad luck was when the Warlock could only roll single digits… multiple times.
Smash Up – this was our BGL game of the week. I actually came in first with a nifty combo of Super Heroes and Giant Ants! Rawwwr (wait, do ants rawwwr???)
Voluspa – I haven’t played this game in months and I totally forgot how much feaking fun it is. It is such a simplistic game, yet you can certainly lapse into AP if you aren’t careful. Trying to make the best placement with your tiles can be nerve wracking! Nuke someone’s combo setup with a properly placed Loki tile. Make mad points with a stack of Fenrirs or by bumping a Valkyrie with a Jotun and scoring a huge row of points. Ahhh, so much fun! This needs to come out again, and soon!
Runebound: Mists of Zanaga – I finally added this to my 2nd edition collection. We lost to the mean mean God of the land. But I loved playing the healing dwarf character. All the extra bits felt a little ‘fiddley’ as far as gameplay goes, but I did enjoy the thematic aspects.
What am I looking forward to playing next week? My friend Dan is bringing out his Twilight Emperium game, and the Innistrad set for MTG should be officially available. I hope I get to live draft with some friends.
What are you playing this week?
