OMG you guys! Dune has been reprinted!
Somehow this completely slipped my radar until the end of last week- and at that point it was sold out anywhere I looked.
So while we were at the Trunk or Treat on Saturday I was talking about it to the Mister. That’s when he dropped the bomb that when he had just been at our FLGS the previous day they just received a shipment with it and gave him first dibs for his wife. 😱 Evidently he was like “nah man, I don’t even know anything about it or if my wife even wants it.”
So of course I did what any good Christian woman would do. I insisted he stopped volunteering his time and left early to go and get the game. He laughed at me- to which I said “I’m serious! You need to leave and get it! Like...nooowwwww.”
He tried to say he was there volunteering his time but I was in charge of the ToT so I was able to declare his shift over and done with....and send him to do more important work: securing a copy the very sold out Dune for me.
Fortunately someone else hadn’t bought the copy yet and he was able to get it. Now I can not wait to play this classic board game and see how it’s been updated!! 😍❤️
Have you played the reprinting? What have you heard? Are you as excited as I am?
PS to all husbands: always buy the game 😉

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 👍🏻👍🏻

Happy Saturday - What are you playing?
We broke down and played Agricola for the first time (well technically the family edition 😂). We really liked it, but man is it hard to feed your growing family without being a beggar.

Okay- let’s talk EXPANSIONS.
On Halloween I received a beautiful package that completed two of my games. There was lust, wrath, the four horsemen of the apocalypse and the Sons of Ragnarok for #TheOthers and Venus Next completing #TerraformingMars (at least until the next expansion ships)
It got me to thinking - what are your FAVORITE and LEAST FAVORITE game expansions?
For me I want an expansion to add relevant content to a game and/or fix poor game mechanics. I can’t stand expansions that weigh down a game just for the sake of releasing an expansion.
In my opinion #stonemaiergames is one of the best when it comes to only releasing solid expansions. Hands down #scythe is the one game I could, with confidence, tell people to buy all of the content for... Each expansion, while not needed, absolutely adds to the replayability and enjoyment for me.
My least favorite expansion without even thinking is #BunnyKingdom. In my opinion it added nothing notable to an otherwise brilliant game. It does add a 5th player, however, the second board doesn’t add to the game for me so much as complicate it for no reason. Did they really need to come up with a whole new way of labeling the grid? The addition of new mechanics to connect zones ultimately did nothing but make me shelve the expansion. Moment of Truth: I would still totally buy it again knowing then when I know now. It has purple bunnies! Purple. Bunnies. This is the same god awful reasoning that guarantees I will be grabbing the Wingspan expansion. PURPLE EGGS. Make it purple and I will buy it. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ At least I have faith as a Stonemaier game that the Wingspan expansion content will be relevant and fun.
Now I can’t wait to play Venus next- people seem pretty split on the value (or lack there of) that it adds to Terraforming Mars. I thought it was best that I make my own decision so I went ahead and grabbed a copy.
So tell me, in your opinion, what are the must have & must avoid expansions?

So much love for @awaken.realms Nemesis.
Cannot wait to receive the expansions, to add different aliens and more survivors.
The closest board game experience to the first Alien film. Creeping around a spaceship attempting to avoid an enemy who will tear you apart. My favourite part of this game is the mistrust between all players. Everyone has there own agenda and it makes the game unbelievably tense from turn one. Deals are struck across the table but you never know who to trust, even though the only way to survive and get past the aliens is to work together. It’s on the long side this one, so you have to accept 2-3 hours of nerves and mistrust sweating, if that’s not your bag this won’t be for you.
First #mezoboardgame god from @kolossalgames ready to conquer. Armies were done pretty easily - zenithal priming plus two layer of citadel washes. But god minis are too unique and great to treat them the same way. This guy was done in 10h+ hours, mandatory zenithal, then basecoating (the longest part surprisingly) with just four colors (mostly ivory and dark sand for shadow parts), then some fun with washes, and finally highlights to enhance direction from which sun is shining. Time for next gods and MAYBE we will be able to play Mezo by the end of the year 😂.
New edition of #eclipseboardgame is on our list for a few months (we’ve missed Kickstarter 😤), and we had a chance to play a demo of it. After about an hour at the table, we’ve became hyped even more! We love #twilightimperium, but it’s too massive and complex to find a place on our table more often. #eclipseseconddawnforthegalaxy from @kolossalgames has a chance to fill the gap on the market, providing true, rich, and complex space experience, but in a more accessible way. After the demo it’s a must-have for us, this can be the best modern space 4x.
Next time you're in the shop, ask us about Paolo Parente's eldritch dieselpunk wargame DUST 1947!

Every player starts with three engines exploring the map to eventually reach a final scoring tile. On your way you collect goods, used for trading in at special trading posts. Using coal you move forward, to travel backwards you need special whistles. Due to several improvements available for your engine and the nice style of the game, I really enjoyed playing it.
