🇫🇷 CORINTH : découvert en guise d’amuse-bouche lors d’une excellente soirée-jeux chez nos amis de @jeuxatheme ! Pour du roll&write📝, c’est très qualitatif, du pur DaysofWonder, même le papier est trop beau pour finir…à la poubelle ! Côté jeu, il faut noter que nous apprécions ces petits jeux papier/crayon depuis Qwixx il y a quelques années. Autant le dire sans chichi, Corinth ne détrônera pas chez nous les Welcome To 👑et surtout le duo Très Futé 🦊 sur le plan des mécanismes, ils sont au-dessus. Les choix sont un peu trop guidés par les dés, histoire de ne pas laisser d’offrande aux autres. Ces derniers récupèrent d’ailleurs des miettes quand ils jouent en dernier. L’intendant permet toutefois de limiter les dégâts du hasard. Je le trouve plus beau 🕵️ que tous les autres roll&write possédés/joués…mais ne sens pas cette impression de contrôle relatif qu’on peut percevoir dans les jeux cités plus haut. Alors pour un premier ou second jeu de ce genre, il plaira, pour des gros joueurs qui aiment ce genre, pas de souci pour y jouer mais dur de se voir faire 50 parties en un mois comme pour très futé… bref à tester pour se faire une idée ! Ceci dit en présence d’enfants de 7/10 ans il peut davantage plaire de par son esthétique fort agréable. D’ailleurs, vous les trouvez comment, les dés corinthiens ? Nous, on a adoré 😊 J'en ai même oublié de photographier les feuillets !!⠀ 🇬🇧-🇱🇷 CORINTH : A greek flavored roll & write game. The most nice looking we played, even the paper is thick and nicely printed ! What about mechanisms ? Corinth won’t overcome Welcome To or Very Clever Duo. It’s a good roll write but it’s not addictive. Thus it may be a good and nice looking choice to begin this kind of games or for playing with 7+ yo kids. Our initial bgg rating : 6.5/10. ⠀
🇪🇸 Aviso expreso, juego descubierto esta semana. Corinth no destronará a un Welcome To y sobre todo al dúo « very clever ». Es pena puesto que creo que es más bonito que todos los roll&write poseídos/jugados… pero no siento esta sensación de control relativo que se puede percibir en los juegos citados anteriormente y claramente no es adictivo como otros Roll/Write. Bueno pero no estupendo 😉

My mother-in-law is slowly getting into gaming so we’ve been teaching her gateway games one at a time. Kingdomino was a hit! She picked it up quickly and enjoyed playing it with us. I can also happily say that I won with 55 points! 🏆 My husband usually wins so I’m glad I took the victory this time. 🥳 #Kingdomino#BoardGames

If you didn’t know, I only recently started playing Scythe and I LOVE IT 😍. My first play as Crimea went pretty well. Came in 🥈, one more turn and I think I had it...
Also realistic resource upgrade 👍🏻👍🏻
Got to play Pipeline at Dice Tower Con this past week! Mon oh man what a brain burner! Definitely need to try diving into it again because no one in the Dingo Pack really optimized that well in our first bout. Although a rough first experience, we found that we kept thinking about it and how we could all do better next time! The puzzle got its hook in us it seems.
Have you had a similar experience? If you did what game was it? Really want to dive into more like Pipeline!

Tiny Towns is one of those games I have a like-hate relationship with. It’s a light-weight game, easy to teach and has great components. At its core it is a spatial awareness puzzle, as you try juggle your placement of each of your buildings while also leaving enough room to layout your building materials for future buildings. It’s is a bit of a fresh take on the wave of Tetris-like mechanics that has been coming in the market recently.
There is a high level of player interaction as each turn a player will get to dictate which color cube everyone must play that turn. You often have to guess what other players are trying to build that round in order to predict what color blocks may be called next, as a few poorly placed blocks could really tank your strategy. There is also the possibility to collectively sabotage your opponents, by going against the grain and plan buildings that use blocks that you know your opponents don’t need.
The monuments give interesting personal objectives for each player, usually allowing for different strategies between players, and adding a secret cube combination that other players may not predict. Though I think they also introduce one of the largest cons of the game, in that they can be highly inbalanced, where some monuments can give you a lot higher scoring possibilities then others. Each player receives two monuments during set up and chooses the one that they wish to use for the game, discarding the other, but it is honestly not enough to mitigate this issue.
The reason that I simultaneously like and hate it is because of how stressful the game can get the longer you play. It isn’t enough to turn me off of the game completely, and sometimes it’s what keeps me coming back for more. It’s not one that I’d want to play over and over again; once is usually enough during game night.
Have you played Tiny Towns? What do you think of it?

(Edit: I found a copy of the game and expansion on a German website! And not for a crazy price.) Russian Railroads is a fantastic worker placement game. You have such interesting choices in the game. You never feel that you have nothing to do or doing a turn that is useless. There are different paths to victory. This is the kind of game that is a staple in anybody's collection, in the same league as Lords of Water deep or Agricola. So it is unfortunate that it's out of print. @zmangames_#gencant
It's 2am and I just finished shooting content. So time for a selfie? 🤣 Game night t-shirt from @quichegames This one is called After light by Christine Alcouffe. Check out the other cool designs at https://shop.nextgamenight.com 😊 #geekgirls#ootd
Played Architects of the West Kingdom for the second time today and it was a lot better than the first time. Played with the asymmetric powers which helped and I had a better time figuring out how to get points.
I lost by 2 mainly thanks to the virtue track. I still struggle to see how to beat someone who goes after the cathedral hard as it seems like 27 points with the virtue track and that's a lot of points to make up.
