Hundreds of plays of ☕️ Chai & ☕️ Chai: Tea for 2 and SHUX is a wrap! 😍 SO encouraged Quinns enjoyed our 2-player game, and congrats to Billy C. for winning a Deluxe KS version! 🙌
Special shoutout to our tea-riffic volunteers Dave, Andy, & Jeremy! 😃 We had such a lovely time and can’t wait for 2020!
Another game of Tapestry completed!
One thing I really enjoy is how easy it is to teach the rules! Well done Jamie for making this such a great game for both experienced gamers and new comers alike.
Finally got a few empty spots on my shelves. Just in time for SPIEL '19 🙂
However knowing myself I know I'll end up buying more games there than can actually fit on myself. But that's a problem "future me" will have to deal with 😁

MANHATTAN || Day 5 of #10days10cards ! I usually don't like challenges but this one set me by @honvsalex seemed like a great opportunity to get creative with photography, plus lets me feature some cool games I don't see enough about. Like I get it guys, Wingspan is very photogenic but... I've seen it from every angle now? Lol!
Anyway, Manhattan is a very cool area control game. This won the Spiel des Jahres back in the day and recently got a refresh by @foxmindgames with new art. Game play is still solid, thanks again Andreas Seyfarth!
Here the cards are used to define where you can place your pieces to take control of a Burrough, but this perspective changes based on where you are seated in reference to the board. I think it's really cool! The new art is vibrant and colorful and wild, very much like New York feels to me (although a bit too tropical maybe 😆) Nominating @movetherobber for a total no-obligations continuation of this challenge if you like!

✨Brass: Birmingham |❣️10/10 | 🎲 3 plays
When you’re always ignoring your own collection (and shelf of shame 😅) in favour of another game, you know it has to be pretty damn good 👌🏻 My friend was happy to oblige me another play of Brass, especially since we got caught up teaching it to some overwhelmed newbies last week... and getting smashed in the process 😂
I need to start branching out with my strategy 🤔 It’s always been a combination of cotton, beer, some coal/iron and lots of high-scoring links, which has worked pretty well so far (I won this game, 126-117-98-83). I haven’t figured out the manufactured goods yet; that’ll be my goal next game 😁 The points:cost ratio seems pretty bad, but I guess not needing beer to sell is a big plus.
Uttoxeter is my favourite city in the game. It’s the only one with 2 breweries and only 2 rail connections, so gaining a foothold/monopoly there can earn insane points—20 for me this game. In previous games, I’ve also undervalued developing and building level 2+ industries in the Canal era; those double points really added up this game and also gave me a way out when I was being cornered by other players 🙄
I love games with a strong tactical component. I struggle with strategy games where you need your moves planned out 5+ turns ahead, especially when I inevitably end up miscalculating/forgetting something important 😬 Brass really appeals to me because while you need a strategy in mind with your cards and industries/routes, it’s just as important to assess the ever-changing board + market demands and maintain some flexibility to take advantage of opportunities that your opponents have given you.
Honestly no negatives with this game other than some fiddly ‘thematic’ rules’ here and there. It’s pretty much perfect to me, and definitely my #1 game 😄
✨Lisboa |❣️8/10 | 🎲 2 plays
Another round of Lisboa this week 🇵🇹 It’s great to have found someone who doesn’t just bring a game once and then move onto another game... I am so guilty of this unfortunately 😅
This was a 2p game, which was fine but I prefer it with 3. It was too much of a zero-sum game for my liking, especially the end-game scoring for the stores and plans, where there’s a huge difference between 1st and 2nd place. The plans particularly score high points and make certain clergy tiles much more contested (better?) than others, like the one that gives an extra state official for each green/blue plan.
This is definitely a game where I’m constantly slapping myself for making suboptimal moves—always a good sign when I blame myself instead of the game 😂 And it’s also much more interactive than I thought. We were always trying to one-up each other by taking the best store locations or denying our opponent their decree card’s points or the public building they desperately needed to score their stores.
Overall, really enjoying it the more I play it. Everything is clicking into place so I’m starting to appreciate the intricacies of the game (like those noble tiles—I would’ve killed for one in my last turn... 😭). I thought it was a game I didn’t desperately need to own, but I’m now increasingly tempted to drop $180 on a copy... 🤦🏻♀️
I got a chance to play #parks which is an insanely beautiful game. If you are into #nature#hiking or #wildlife this is a must have. It’s completely on point for its theme.
Me personally? Well, I am not super outdoorsy so I am not necessarily it’s target audience. So my honest opinion is I am luke warm on it. I don’t like nor dislike it. It’s a path game along the same vein as Tokaido. I personally felt like it was a more simplistic version, but when comparing notes on the game with @threelittlemeeples he said he felt just the opposite that it was a more complex version. I also only played with two players and I am really intrigued how it plays with more. In this kind of game I think you need more players to really have fun with the strategy. Here is hoping Angie brings it to game night so we can take a run at it with more people. 🤞🏻
We were nominated by @kutuoyunufalan for the #10days10cards challenge! Here’s one of our favs. Coup! I feel like we’re the last to be nominated for this challenge so if you’d like to be hit the comments below!

CO₂ : Segunda Chance
No jogo CO₂, cada jogador é o CEO de uma companhia de energia que responde aos pedidos do governo para novas usinas de energia verde. O objetivo é parar o aumento da poluição ao mesmo tempo em que atende a crescente demanda por energia sustentável - e, obviamente, lucrar com isso. Você precisará de conhecimentos, dinheiro e recursos suficientes para construir essas usinas de energia limpa. As cúpulas energéticas promoverão a conscientização global e permitirão que as empresas compartilhem um pouco de sua experiência enquanto aprendem ainda mais com os outros.
Em CO₂, cada região começa com um certo número de licenças de emissões de carbono (CEPs) à sua disposição. Esses CEPs são concedidos pelas Nações Unidas e devem ser gastos sempre que a região precisar instalar a infraestrutura de energia para um projeto ou construir uma usina de combustível fóssil. CEPs podem ser comprados e vendidos em um mercado, e seu preço flutua durante todo o jogo. Você vai querer tentar manter o controle sobre os CEPs.
Dinheiro, CEPs, Usinas de energia limpa e sustentável que você construiu, metas da ONU que você completou, metas da empresa que você conheceu e a experiência que você ganhou, tudo isso lhe dá pontos de vitória (VPs), que representam a reputação de sua empresa - e ter a melhor reputação é o objetivo do jogo ... além de salvar o planeta, é claro.
Scopriamo i personaggi di Throne 👑
BJORN - Campione della gilda dei guerrieri ha dimostrato il suo valore in numerose battaglie. ⚔
I suoi principi sono onore e fedeltà eterna a Tranohs suo Lord che sin da piccolo ha visto in lui e in Aryen i futuri eredi e guide per la gilda dei guerrieri.
Ha eliminato molti dei suoi avversari a mani nude e solitamente combatte con quello che trova, quello che ha ancora tra le mani o almeno ciò che ne resta.
Sono poche le cose che la gente conosce sul suo conto, tutti si ricordano di lui come il bambino che sopravvisse alla furia di Kahonis nel villaggio sperduto di Lungavita.
Fu Anukat a donargli le leggendarie pergamene del coraggio, Bjorn le porta sempre con sé, è convinto che mostrandole ai suoi avversari possa risparmiare molte vite ed avere più tempo da passare in taverna davanti ad un boccale di buon vino. 🍷
