Sunday group met up last night after a failed attempt last week. Its been a good week of gaming with two monster games of Twilight Struggle in the week. This game is so good I just love playing it. After 3 games I have a much better understanding of the game and how to play it.
Last night I introduced Poison, Race for the Galaxy and WOW: The adventure game. All game went down well.
We started off with Poison and it soon become round after the cauldrons added up to 13. Its a nice little game, not too taxing and a good filler.
Next up was Race for the Galaxy, San Juan is enjoyed in our group and RftG pushes things on a bit. It was a good game with Sid James just winning with 35 points after going for a military route. I am now getting the hang of this game, after a few games the consume/trade/produce element makes sense and strategies are forming.
We rounded off the night with a game of WOW:TAG, we are all Warcraft players so the game mimicked the WOW world very well. My only issue with the game is the time it takes. As time was against us we decided to play until 11PM then see who had the most valour points.
Moley won with the orc warrior, who I think is probably the strongest character in the game.
All in its a good alternative to Runebound, but I think all of these game suffer from the same problem, the time it takes to play.
Tonight Descent is finally going to hit the table, yeah right we shall see.
