Patchwork is one of the first two player games I remember buying and playing, it doesn't see as much table time as it used to but its always enjoyed when it does eventually make it! I recently played patchwork doddle too, which was also fun, but I'd probably pick the original if I had to choose one.
Here’s Ben; our dread lock to his bum, Clocktower loving, UK games master. If you’ve played #bloodontheclocktower in the UK, you’ve most likely met Ben. Charming champ ain’t ‘e?
Here he is with a double dose of favourite edition and favourite character all in one post.
“My favourite edition has to be Bad Moon Rising. Standing in stark contrast to the balance and sensibility of Trouble Brewing and the elegant, intellectual approach required for Sects & Violets, I feel like BMR is the rebellious stepchild of the Clocktower family. It just wants to ram a shotgun down your throat and pull the trigger. BMR is positively packed with drunkenness and misinformation, with night-time massacres an ever-looming possibility. As a result, the pressure is always on to not only extract as much information as possible, as quickly as possible, but to make big plays and dramatic announcements in order to manipulate both allies and enemies.”
“My favourite character is also from BMR and it's the deliciously Lovecraftian nightmare that is the Shabbaloth. For me, the Shabbaloth encompasses everything I love about Blood on the Clocktower. It's an opportunity for the evil team to kill two people, thus pushing them toward their victory conditions. But the fact that they might be regurgitated is a great example of the kind of balancing tools that are given to the Storyteller. In the hands of a talented Storyteller, the Shabbaloth can be anything from utterly devastating to a mild nuisance, often multiple times within a single game. It's filthy, it's nasty, it's brilliant.”
Nice one Ben!

Look at our amazing $9 game haul! We had a couple credits at McKays used Book Store and walked away with all three of these for only NINE DOLLARS!
We played all 3 today and enjoyed them for different reasons. #ElderSigns was a punishing yet fun dice chucker, #suburbiagame was a great balance of simple rules and so many complicated decisions and #thewizardalwayswins was fun, goofy and great for our non gamer friends and the kids! Super pleased with all our finds. And really, check out Mckay’s if you have one near you.
ON MARS 2P (143/116)
Finally got the new Lacerda to the table!
Another table hog with a high complexity!
I dont think it's more complex than Lisboa but definitely has more things to read and interpret because you have a LOT of cards in display and you can use every players tecnologies and every players cards!! Its just a tad too much... If I feel this way with just another player, I cant imagine having to read the cards and tokens constantly of 3 other players, before each turn!
The actions are rather straightforward and you never feel blocked like in Lisboa. But the combos you can do make the game simultaneously very fun and very complex
The game boils down to building the colony and it felt it a bit repetitive towards the end. I missed Kanban's and Escape Plan's wow moments and high tension at the end! These continue to be my favorite ones!
Overall, a high quality design and component quality, for those to like to plan the whole game on turn 1.
Feel free to ask anything I missed talking about.
Ticket to Ride Old West map by @daysofwonder.
Not my favorite map of the bunch, and deeply eclipsed by the opposite side, the France map. It didn't seem to offer much that was new.
Do you have a favorite Ticket to Ride map?

One of the greatest things with the game board in ⬆️Above and Below⬇️ is the resource reference, showing you what resources there are and how rare each one is. They are grouped in "common" "uncommon" and "rare", each group clearly separated from the next with a gap, but even within the groups they are sorted from most common to most rare, top to bottom.

Do you enjoy race games? What’s your favorite?
Unfortunately, I’m not sure the Blue car realized we were racing...
Downforce is a great 1-6 player pure racing game. And we love it for both our game group and family game night! Can’t wait to get the new expansion maps👍🏻

What games demand upgraded components?
For us, Brass Birmingham needed replacement ship and train tokens. The flat cardboard pieces weren’t cutting it for this gorgeous game.
Bonus fact: We learned that double sided game boards are awesome! We played the “day” side of Brass Birmingham for the first time. While it provides no functional difference, it’s really nice and normally an unused space. I’m also not complaining about additional eye candy!
What are your must have expansions?
Many of you know we are BIG fans of Scythe, but we just played with the Wind Gambit expansion. ⭐️
I don’t think I’ll ever play without it again. First off, there are flying ships...I mean, just look at them 😍. Beyond that the expansion added another layer with the variable powers for the ships as well as alternate end game conditions (the other module).
This expansion definitely elevated a game that is already one of our absolute favorites to play. If you enjoy Scythe I strongly suggest you check this out.
I got to play Rajas of the Ganges! 🎉 It was the most recommended game in my flea market haul and now I know why! I love worker placement games and this will definitely be played again. I focused on getting dice early in the game and on building out my board, which almost got me to victory! It was a lot of fun, and I love the chunky dice. #rajasoftheganges
Agricola | The original edition isn’t as beautiful as some of the newer editions but this game is still so good!!! Feeling pretty good about my 46 point high score! #agricola#uwerosenberg #bgg #boardgame #tabletopgames — #cardgame #gaming #epic #boardgamegeek #gamer #games #boardgamejp #analoggame #juegosdemesa #Brettspiele #ボードゲーム #brädspel #jeuxdesociété #j2s #game #geek#instagame#boardgamesofinstagram

I ❤️ my #flgs so much. They host open table gaming every Monday until 10:00 p.m. and have this fantastic game library for patrons. They regularly rotate games on it too! I’ve made so many friends in the local gaming community through @gamescapesf and I’m thankful that I live around the corner from this awesome spot. If you’re ever in San Francisco you NEED to swing by! They have a HUGE game selection and employ the nicest people. #boardgames

Afternoon of gaming with friend. We're starting with Terra Mystica with the Merchants of the Sea and Ice and Fire expansion. #terramystica
I finally have time to write down my thoughts about the Herb Witches expansion for The Quacks of Quedlinburg! I can definitely say that I LOVE what it adds to the game after playing with it a few times. The witch powers, which can be used once per game, are quite powerful and can tip the odds in your favor when used wisely. There are 12 different witch cards in the game, 4 per color, which adds a lot of variability in the game. Some of them have powers like, “Use your flask after your pot explodes” or “Double the coins you have to buy ingredients this phase”. They are incredibly helpful and fun to use!
I also LOVE the giant 6-pumpkin!! I swear I won twice by having a bunch of them in my bag. They get you so far when you draw them! They aren’t cheap at all, but worth getting them when you can. They got me to my overflow pot, which gets you extra VP points on top of the 15 you get for hitting 35. I used to think I’d never reach the end of the pot until I started playing with this expansion.
The best part about the expansion is the ability to add a 5th player to the game. It doesn’t really affect the quality of game play since everyone draws their own chips, but it’s nice to have the option of having another player during game nights.
I doubt I’ll play Quacks without the Herb Witches; they just add a lot of random fun to the game and help you out when you need it. The expansion also fits in the base box, which is nice. I tossed the box after adding the components in since shelf space is scarce at home.
Have you played with the expansion yet? What do you think of it?
Before reading the rules we were so confused about the cave cards in ⬆️Above and Below⬇️, but once we learned how they are used in the game I found them to be genious. Each number reffers to one encounter in the encounter book, so when you explore you take one cave card and roll one D6 to see which one of the possible 6 encounters on the card will be read to you. It is such a simple way of randomizing between the more than 200 encounters without needing an extreme amount of extra components. The fact that the cave card is then used as spots to build underground houses just makes it even better.
The fun of board games is undeniable, but this sometimes masks a wonderfully serious side they can bring through educational enrichment.
Have you played NOVA RAIDERS?

Mombasa designed by Alex Pfister and published by @pegasusspiele was a cracking game, but wow my brain hurts! I definitely need to play that again soon and not in another 2 years, Has anyone played it at two players? Would you recommend it as a two player game.
Parks | Wow! I just got this game as a late Christmas gift from a family member and it might be the MOST beautiful and intentional presentation I have ever experienced in gaming. The insert is phenomenal, the art is stunning, and the entire project is infused with the very essence of enjoying and respecting nature that the National Parks Service embodies! And on top of it all, the game play is fun, elegant, witty, and simple enough to grasp for the whole family. I’m floored and just might have to play this one again today! #parksandrec#parksthegame#nationalpark #bgg #boardgame #tabletopgames — #cardgame #gaming #epic #boardgamegeek #gamer #games #boardgamejp #analoggame #juegosdemesa #Brettspiele #ボードゲーム #brädspel #jeuxdesociété #j2s #game #geek#instagame#boardgamesofinstagram
Aeon’s End | After 5 hours, 4 games, and 3 different mage combinations we finally downed the first boss of this very cool coop deck builder. I can’t believe this game has been out for four years and I haven’t played it yet! The no-shuffle deck building plus static market are a strategic dream! And it’s soooo hard, which is very good. Not to mention it made that razor thin win so much more worthwhile! Can’t wait to get this one back to the table! #aeonsend #bgg #boardgame #tabletopgames — #cardgame #gaming #epic #boardgamegeek #gamer #games #boardgamejp #analoggame #juegosdemesa #Brettspiele #ボードゲーム #brädspel #jeuxdesociété #j2s #game #geek#instagame#boardgamesofinstagram

First 2 solo plays of Blackout: Hong Kong and it plays really well solo. I like the fact that each campaign game has a different setup with a new problem to solve. I look forward to playing this with other people soon.

Got betrayed by my lover and my #testingBFF 😱
My first plays of Nusfjord solo towards my challenge this year. I decided to play a solo campaign game due to the recommendation on the @solosauruspodcast review a month or so ago. I will probably play it this way solo in the future as your decisions mean more as when you build a building you won't have access to it in the 3rd game of the series. Overall I lost by 3 points at 97 after 3 games, looking forward to trying the other decks.

Can you escape the zombies?! There's, Zombies everywhere!! Join us next Tuesday for more games from 7pm upstairs at the Adelphi.
I’m teaming up with @brettspielsuechtig and posting my Top 9 games from 2019 that I’d love to play! I already tried Reavers of Midgard and loved it, so one down and eight to go! Join us and show us yours using #top9unplayed2019
Thanks to @br0kenm0nkey for pointing out that Tidal Blades is actually a 2020 game. I was just so excited about their Kickstarter that launched last year. Sooo if I could change it to a game that made it to the hands of players at Essen, I’d pick Chai. Still waiting for my KS copy to arrive! Hopefully that still falls under 2019. 🤞🏼

It's time for another crazy angle shot of my collection 🤪
I can help but keep moving games around and actually find it very enjoyable. Do you do that too?
