And one of the #taintedgrail Menhirs at close range. Torn between playing ASAP, and painting minis with a huge attention to details, we finally decided to resign from “on-display” quality. Still, it didn’t work out badly, and looks good enough for the table.

#rootriverfolkexpansion in action. We’ve played with marquise, alliance, cult and the company. With these four nations in play game seemed a bit less balanced than the core one, but this impression can disappear after a few more plays. Riverfolks won, although they are even more odd than vagabond. They should be used only against more experienced players, who are seeing advantages in buying services from company. And we really didn’t feel lizards. Great idea and design, but cult in our gameplay hadn’t a chance to spread its wings, #rootboardgame ended with lizards at the last place. What’s you experience with the cult and the riverfolk company?

Out of town weekend with friends and boardgames ❤️. One of the games which landed on the table was #terraformingmars with #terraformingmarsturmoil and all the expansions, even player sheets with carved spaces for cubes. Is it turmoil worth buying?
Definitely yes, this is the second must-have add on right after #terraformingmarsprelude . Turmoil introduces global events and lobbing action when you can put your delegates to influence which of the political groups will rule in the next generation. Expansion serves extra level of deepness, new ways of interaction between players and it rewards those who plan ahead. Moreover, turmoil, in opposition to the venue and colonies, always influence the every player. We’ve played with friends for whom TM was sth new, and from all expansions in the board they were instantly attracted by turmoil, forgetting about Venus and rather not touching the colonies.
Summarizing, if you have or plan to buy Terraforming Mars (which you should, it’s a great game loved by the most of players), and you are thinking about expansions then we recommend order: first prelude, then turmoil, next are colonies, after it venus, and the last should be hellas&elysium. Do TM veterans agree?

So today we had a chance to play the next hyped game from @jameystegmaier, famous #tapestry. Does it deserve its hype? Rather yes, but let’s start with fact that it’s not a civilization game, or at least not in a way we are used to. We haven’t felt we were leading nation or tribe through ages, advancing technology, culture etc. It’s like civ game in a false mirror. Hodge poder of civ game elements mixed together in weird, absurd way. It’s not bad thing though. Tapestry is odd and different. For example there is no chronological order of discoveries. You can develop vaccine before wheel and nations are more like cool subcultures. #tapestryboardgame is awesome game with twist and humor. You just must remember it’s not serious hardcore heavy game. Despite this Tapestry still provides a lot of strategies, huge replayability, super easy rules, fresh idea for turn order, and traditionally (as all SM games) wonderful quality of content. Plus painted minis are super charming, and box includes automa and AI player option for two players. There is some weird magic in Tapestry and that makes it unique.

First miniatures from #taintedgrail are ready! It’s so much better to play with painted minis. That only strengthens immersion and gives completely different experience. Heroes and menhirs are ready but what about all that #monstersofavalon expansion 😱😱😱so many miniatures, so little time!:( do you always paint your minis? For us it’s mandatory. We prefer to wait couple of weeks than play with gray plastic. 😅
Yesterday we played #trickerion for the first time. We purchased collectors edition on Essen and it was worth every penny! Game looks so amazing... That gigantic box is incredible and contains great stylish insert. Golden elements on box mixed with deep red color gives impression of something really luxurious. And game? At beginning it’s a little bit overwhelming but as soon as you start play everything becomes intuitive. Of courses game is extremely complex and giving millions of strategies but thankfully in very user friendly way. Thanks to amazing design game is very immersive. You really feel like magician preparing his tricks for the show. We only played base game with dark alley expansion. Soon will check other expansion and for sure tell you more about them. For now it’s very strong 9/10 worker placement serving us magical theme, beautiful components and quite fast gameplay!

#taintedgrail is finally here! It’s been a long year @awaken.realms ! Fortunately tomorrow is Friday! 🤩
Zu Zombicide wurde ein weiterer Kickstarter angekündigt mit dem Titel "Night of the Living Dead". Vieles lässt sich bisher dazu nicht sagen, jedoch kann man unter den Titel "Zombicide: Night of the Living Dead Teaser" auf Youtube den ersten Teaser betrachten, der allerdings bisher auch nur neue Spielfiguren zeigt und dass man die Nacht überleben muss. Es bleibt also spannend.
Was denkt ihr bisher davon? Mögt ihr Spiele dieser Art? 🧟♀️ To Zombicide another Kickstarter was announced with the title "Night of the Living Dead". Much can not be said so far, but you can see under the title "Zombicide: Night of the Living Dead Teaser" on Youtube the first teaser, that so far only shows new characters. So it remains exciting.
What do you think so far?
