I so want to try 7th continent, but I’m afraid it just wouldn’t get played.
Looked up War Room. Whew! That is one gorgeous looking board and with a measly 600 minute game time. I think I could get in a game of this and TI4 in one sitting. More power to you the cool war nerds that play this.
I broke down and backed Cerebria. My thought was if it sucks for my group. I can trade it or sell it at close to cost. That said, Mindclash is quickly moving up my publisher list so I expect I will end up keeping it. Man their games are meaty and oozing with theme.
Played 2 games of Lisboa. Man do I suck at it, but wow do I like it. I’m going to write a review, but I love how every part of that game ties back to the theme and history of the rebuilding of Lisbon. Whether it’s building using the rubble left by the earthquake, using your influence get what you need from different aristocrats, or just use of colors in the artwork, Lisbon is everywhere. You could over look some of this stuff, but if you play it take a moment to really soak it all in.
Finally, finished Pandemic Legacy. It was a great experience, but I call BS on the scores on the BGG. Unless they’ve played it multiple times (why would you) I cannot see anyone getting over 900 on their first game. Even gaming the system with some of the things I looked up. There’s just too many random things that happen if you don’t know they’re coming up.
May not be the right crowd to ask, but I need to find a service that will paint miniatures. Anyone have any recommendations?
