Over the xmas hols, i have a tradition of spending time with my brother and his girlfriend, playing board games.
Before we moved, my partner and I, and my brother and his gf would take turns hosting board game nights.
Its one of the things I miss the most since moving away. .
My brother has an ever growing collection, that outstrips my own... I'll have to rectify that.
Last years new game we played was Mechs vs Minions. Wasnt sure at first but damn what an awesome game!!

:: Qᴜɪᴄᴋ Rᴇᴠɪᴇᴡ ﹣ Hᴀɴᴀᴍɪᴋᴏᴊɪ :: Hanamikoji is a lightning-fast strategy game for two players that is incredibly easy to learn yet surprisingly deep.
Let‘s be honest, sometimes it is really hard to get 5 or 6 (or even 3 or 4) people together for a heavy duty board game night. Especially once you enter the adulting phase of your life and little details like work and kids eat away at your precious nerd time. And even though you can play most Up to 4 Player games with two players a lot of them are severely lacking as 2 Player games.
That is why we have started playing more and more dedicated 2 Player games. And Hanamikoji excels in that regard.
It takes literal seconds to set up, can be explained in a few sentences and has utterly quick rounds. It is probably one of the best games we have that is under 15 minutes.
The goal of the game is to score points by winning over Geishas. You do that by trying to give them their corresponding gift cards. There is very little rules overhead. On your turn you use up one of four principal actions.
Two of these actions let you burn or save cards as hidden information for your opponent. The other two follow a „I Cut, You Choose“ mechanic where you divide gift cards into piles and your opponent chooses who gets to play which cards.
If at the end of the round neither of you has cleared the win condition, the game goes into an additional round but your earned favour carries over. This adds an entirely new dimension to the game as you try to wrest control over geishas from your opponent while trying to block them from doing the same.
The result of all this is an influence control game with imperfect information that is very light on rules but surprisingly full of agonizing strategic decisions and mind games.

Did you know the Canary Islands are NOT named after birds?⠀
Seriously! They are actually named after dogs! The latin term is Canaria which means dogs! So its rumored the island had lots of dogs! Another theory is that we don't mean dogs... but seals because the Romans used to call them sea dogs lol point being its not birds 😂🤷♀️⠀
How many times do you stumble upon something that isn't what it seems... It happens to us all the time. We make an assumption based on what we think we know and then our brain categorizes it as the truth. ⠀
This is exactly what happened to us when we thought of "eating healthy". We thought it would mean eating salads and pretty much starving all the time. Calorie counting, deprivation... All that fun stuff (yes please tell me you read the sarcasm there!)⠀
So when we started to consider starting to eat better we were both honestly a little bummed. We were not looking forward to it! We had a preconceived notion of how it was going to be and it wasn't not pleasant!⠀
Imagine our surprise when we found a way to keep eat ALL the foods we love, not feel like we were starving and still overall feel better and lose weight!⠀
Even writing that I feel like its hard to believe. If it hadn't happened to me I would probably roll my eyes lol But what we learned was that all these preconceived ideas about the subject were wrong! ⠀
There are so many options other than salads that are healthy! You can make tasty alternatives to guilty pleasures and learn to still eat treats now and then but just not all the time! ⠀
We say these things from experience! We don't believe in cutting out carbs, we don't have the time or patience to count calories and we certainly are not going to live life starving. What we can do however is take the time to create healthy meals that fuel our bodies and also just taste good!⠀
So if you are wanting to learn more about nutrition and the options we have incorporated, let us know! We would LOVE to chat about how we changed our thoughts on what was considered "healthy eating"!

I see the idea behind it and like the idea but that might be the reason it is not talked about. Plus it is set in the Dead of Winter "world" which, for people who play Dead of Winter might not have the need for Raxxon.
I tried a new player power in my solo game of Teotihuacan this week and it was focused on gathering masks. Luckily there were several available right at the start of the game and I managed to get up the orange temple meaning I didn't need to feed my workers in the first age.
Thanks to all the bonuses from my priest I managed to reach the top of 2 temples and I got a whole set of masks, something I thought would never be possible. I scored my 8 set of masks twice in the final round meaning I got a new high score of 269 points and got the victory. What is your high score in this game?

A delightful cute little game. The gameplay, however, is not as lighthearted as the artwork suggests. It starts off pretty straightforward, gathering resources, using your actions to harvest, draw cards, explore and build buildings. But the complexity (and fun) ramps up the more you get into the game. The “rondel-like” action wheel where you place your pieces requires a bit of forward planning as you are only allowed to move them to an adjacent action space. While turn by turn actions remain the same, the combos that abound when you take actions that chain on actions, that chain on actions, would make any card game player excited. The other thing that extended the replayability of this game is the plethora of different starting factions available to choose from, each with their own unique flavour. I was playing as one of the 2 new Japanese factions (who specialises in “borrowing” resources from opponents) from the expansion, where the aforementioned action chain became even more important as I needed to time when and how to take them. My opponents were another Japanese faction, whose sole goal was docking and trading with distant islands, and an Eskimo faction, who relied on their massive fish and stone farms. All in all, I wouldn’t mind getting this gem to the table again, and I can’t wait to try out the other factions. #boardgame#boardgames#boardgamegeek#bgg#tabletopgames#boardgamer#tabletop#boardgamesofinstagram#boardgameaddict#boardgamenight#gamenight#tabletopgame#boardgaming#tabletopgaming#cardgame#bggcommunity#boardgamers#analoggames#geek#games#empiresofthenorth#empiresofthenorthjapaneseislands
Bailar la Macarena nunca fue tan divertido, ah cómo? No había que bailar?
En éste juego de cartas de @juegosmaldon hay que usar las clásicas escaleras y piernas para ganar amuletos y podés ser el nuevo aprendiz de la Macarena (y poder bailarla a la perfección.. no no, no tiene que ver con el baile) 🙆🏻♂️ Además de estar ilustrado por el mismísimo @albertomontt tiene componentes bien hechecitos, y es muy divertido de jugar, ya que las piernas y escaleras se pueden combinar, y además jugas con un pozo común de cartas, y cuánto más acumules para hacer una mejor jugada, más riesgo tenés a qué te la saquen.🧐 Nos pareció un poco largo nomás, se vuelve un poco largo todo el proceso de terminar el mazo, y hacer todos los turnos que se necesiten para terminar el juego, pero tampoco es que te aburre. Habria que buscarle una vuelta de tuerca, ya saldrán las "reglas de la casa". ✔️ Me encantan los juegos nacionales bien hechos, y además es re lindo de ver, solo lo largo del juego le resta, y hace que se lleve 3.5/5 gabrielitos 🕺🕺🕺🕴️ #boardgame#bgg#boardgames#juegosdemesa #reseñasdejuegos #boardgamereview#boardgameadict#tabletop#boardgamer#juegosmaldon#albertomontt

:: Qᴜɪᴄᴋ Rᴇᴠɪᴇᴡ ﹣ Cʜᴀʀᴛᴀᴇ :: This one is probably going to be real quick, since this 2 Player game is just so goddamn simple and elegant. What you see here is literally the whole game. Nine tiles of gorgeously drawn maps with different land and sea configurations. The map style actually reminds me of the hand-drawn maps in my old copy of The Hobbit which I absolutely adore.
The game is designed by Reiner Knizia of Keltis fame and I borrowed it from a friend who is a pretty big Knizia fan. His games get often critiqued for being very abstract and mathematical and while I sometimes share this concern, in this case I really like the neat and simple nature of it.
Ready for the rules? Two cartographers are arguing over a map. One is responsible for land, the other for sea. On your turn you either place a tile next to another tile or you turn a tile 90° clockwise. A turn action can only be taken twice in a row, then a new tile has to be placed. Once a 3x3 map is finished the game ends and whoever managed to get more continuous tiles of his area type wins. That’s it.
The game really quickly turns into an intricate tactical puzzle were you try to get the most efficiency out of the rapidly lessening number of rounds. A puzzle where some jerk keeps messing with your map.
And the game plays as fast as it sounds. Ten minutes might actually be a long round most times. In many ways Chartae is probably the perfect filler game. It has quick rounds, virtually no setup and the box literally fits into your pocket.

La Granja! Super glad that we finally got this back to the table again. It's such a brilliant design! All the different mechanics blend together so incredibly well. I just love the multi-use cards and the combo making is very satisfying 👌 The fantastic artwork by Harald Lieske is also a big plus 😉 Tonight's game was very competitive with a lot of focus on the market. After the final scoring our scores were 65-65 😅 I ended up winning the tiebreaker because I had the most silver left ✌️ Feels good! It was a really fun game. We need to play this a lot more often 😁

¡Al habla Raquel! He de confesar que a mí este juego no me llamaba nada la atención. De hecho es que no quería ni jugar. Pero ¡sorpresa! Ha sido todo un descubrimiento.
Lo hemos jugado con varias personas y les ha encantado a todos. Es un juego que pica muchísimo y te dan ganas de intentarlo una y otra vez.
Para quién no lo conozca The Mind es un juego muy sencillo. Va por niveles, en cada uno de ellos se reparten cartas boca abajo, dependiendo del número del nivel. En el nivel uno se reparte una, en el nivel dos dos y así sucesivamente hasta el nivel 12. La idea es colocarlas en orden ascendente pero sin que los jugadores hablen. Es juego muy divertido, que requiere de atención y mucha comunicación no verbal. ¡Además pone mucho en tensión a los jugadores!
Lo recomiendo mucho, es barato, transportable y no requiere de apenas explicación.
200 followers - well, that’s a surprise! Thanks for your interest. Can you pick which game these pieces are from? Hint: I’m on holidays so it’s a compact travel game. Scroll if you want the answer 😃 #boardgames
The Ravens of Thri Sahashri by @ospreygames .Day 5 or #10cards10days#10days10cards challenge. This little card game blew me away. This was a complete surprise gifted to me by one of my good friends @mandyxmccool for Christmas. 🧩🧩🧩🧩🧩
Thoughts: This is a cooperative 2 player game where one person is playing Feth who is trying to repair Ren’s heart by searching through these fragments of dreams. The other payer (Ren) is trying to communicate with Feth by taking cards from the “Atman” that he is building and trying to complete her hearts poems called “Doidtsu”. This two player is like unlike anything I’ve ever played before. With no communication between the two players it’s all about how can I help my teammate whilst helping myself. This game comes with a booklet that describes the love between Ren and Feth and how their story came to part. This game is really hard to beat, and that just makes it all the more fun. If you want to know how to play, Rhado Runs through made a gameplay video back in 2015. Can you save Ren from the ravens devouring her dreams and reunite the two, or will Ren stay in a coma unable to reunite with her love? If you play this game please let me know. It’s such an amazing game that I just can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks.
Thank you. Really like Raxxon, played 4 times now I think. A unsung gem if you ask me. I got it for a steal as well. Some interesting choices, push your luck elements, variable player powers. All good stuff
Brass: Birmingham has finally arrived! Ordered this as soon as we had finished our first game of Brass: Lancashire...🙄 Brass is just soo ridiculously good 😁 Super excited about getting it to the table and see how it compares to Lancashire. I'm pretty sure I will prefer Lancashire at 2p though (thanks to the community map), but you never know 🤷♂️ We're aiming at giving it a spin on Friday. Can't wait!

Qᴜɪᴄᴋ Rᴇᴠɪᴇᴡ ﹣ Sᴇᴛᴛʟᴇʀs ᴏғ Cᴀᴛᴀɴ. Sᴏʀᴛ ᴏғ.
Let’s get one thing out of the way, if you are the type of person that looks at boardgames on Instagram of all places, then chances are that you know Settlers of Catan, have played it or even own it.
So a proper review is about 25 years too late. And it would probably be a huge disservice to the game to judge it by modern standards because let’s face it, Catan has quite a few issues. I’ll get into them some other time.
So this will try to be a sort of retrospective, to look at what Catan did that set it apart from other games of its generation and what made it into such a success. Small disclaimer though, this is mostly my understanding of how things played out, so if I get anything wrong, feel free to correct me.
The game is fairly simplistic by today’s standards. The main map consists of 19 hexagonal tiles which results in a highly modular board. This in itself was also quite innovative, most popular games of the time featured boards with rigid paths like Monopoly. In addition the placement of your settlements is completely up to you.
But what really set Settlers apart was the fact that competition in the game could actually be solved by collaboration more effectively than by pure conflict. In the core game there are very few ways of directly damaging your opponents, apart from stealing resources via the robber or cards like „Monopoly“. The robber actually actively discourages players from hoarding resources and instead incentivizes them to trade in order to be able to build stuff and stay under 7 hand cards. In that way one player’s success can actually benefit all and short term alliances are usually beneficial and often even necessary to achieve victory.
Settlers is at its core a game about economic theory, land development and alliances more than about pure competition and conflict. Nowadays we have a plethora of games that do similar things in even more interesting ways, but it is very easy to forget that Settlers basically forged the way for them.
🐶 Another round of #CooperIsland – this game is so awesome! 😍 The second play went a lot smoother for all of us. I didn’t manage to score more points though 😢 Wanted to build all five statues, but got side-tracked! 😬 I think, it’s quite important to make at least one ship delivery in order to unlock the „place double landscape tile“ bonus action … which isn’t available any other way as a free action if I’m not mistaken … Love how you discover such small nuances while and after playing this game! One of best games of 2019 for sure! 🤩 #andreasodendahl#frostedgames#pegasusspiele#capstonegames
✨Bora Bora |❣️7/10 | 🎲 3 plays
My group and I always end up playing a Feld at some point each month, no matter how distracted we are by all the shiny new games we’re buying 😂 I finished all my green objectives for the first time but narrowly lost to my friend, who completely dominated the area control, 177-171-140.
This was my first non-4p game, and I have to say that it was a lot more enjoyable at this player count. There’s more wiggle room to actually carry out your plan rather than being blocked from virtually every action 😂 Still need to try it with 2, but Feld’s games generally scale well between 2-4 players.
I still don’t like that there aren’t as many ways to manipulate your dice compared to other dice games, like CoB or Marco Polo. If you roll low dice in Bora Bora, your only option is to either use white/blue god cards or use your dice to block your opponents (it’s usually the latter). Your dice really force you in a certain direction, and there’s not a lot of freedom in your decision-making.
It’s still a good game that I’m happy to own, though I’m not sure I completely need it.. I haven’t played my copy yet, and my friend insists that I should stop buying games that he also owns 😅

5 player Concordia with the Venus expansion as a first experience at the Guildford Gamers board game club. Was great fun and awesome to play with such great gamers who really get the game. Just about kept up! Thankfully they were excellent teachers and very patient!! #noob
I think it was the way is initially launched? Didn't they give out the game to reviewers with invite codes for others to get the game, who had invite codes etc. Trying to tie in with the whole pandemic/spread of disease/spread of the board game.
