The Board Game Arena water cooler: jump in here to play boardgames with other Qt3 folks!

I actually have King of Tokyo in my massive “to get rid of” pile. :) Somewhere along the way I thought it would be a good idea to own a copy, since it’s sort of the go-to for brainless King of the Hill action. But it’s probably only been played two or three times, tops.

Anyway, we only need one more to get some four-player kaiju action up in here. Oops, too late, it’s game on with @CaseyRobinson joining us and I’m the giant chicken. BAWK BAWK, emeffers!!!1!

I love Yahtzee (ducks) so I also love King of Tokyo

Whoa, nice! They don’t make that easy to find. :)
I opened a game of Lost Ruins or Arnak if anyone wants to play. All levels welcome!

ohhhhh yeah. I’m in

So much winning! Only the first turn, but still.

EDIT: @bmarinari, I will definitely jump into your Arnak game if there’s still an open slot tomorrow morning!

Very simple game, and the BGA version guides each step you need to take

The game i’m really enjoying on BGA is Memoir 44. It is such a smooth implementation and scratches the exact same itch without setup and takedown.

I ambused bmarinari earlier in the week with a game and really enjoyed a match - if anyone is interest in semi-regular Memoir games, then let me know!

Overlord mode? Because that’s hard to make happen in real life.

I have never played Overlord, but would be interested to try!

I enjoyed it! I’m up more Memoir if you want to keep playing.

I like how this is like a cross between amusing him and ambushing him. :)

I’ve joined the Lost Ruins of Arnak game with @bmarinari, @pizzaddict, and @jsnell only to discover it doesn’t include the expansion and we have to play with boring ol’ vanilla characters. Which is fine, but I just hope y’all playing Lost Ruins of Arnak in the realworld have the Expedition Leaders add-on! It’s, as the French say, de rigueur.

I was indeed both amused and ambushed.

I’m hoping the expansion comes to BGA soon, but I do still enjoy the base game. If I knew we were having seasoned veterans in the game, I might have enabled the Snake temple. :)

BGA is pretty terrible about including expansions. I suspect it’s to help… encourage… people to buy the physical games.

A few turn-based tables im starting!

There are also some games on BGA that I have never played, but would be willing to try with someone who is ok with new and clueless:

Ark Nova
Wingspan
Castles of Burgundy
Space Base
Agricola (ducks)
Great Western Trail
Stone Age
Kingdom Builders
The Crew
Beyond the Sun
Obsession
Architects of the West Kingdom
Roll for the Galaxy
MyCity
Barrage
Blood Rage

So just a few :). Lmk

Happy to set up an Ark Nova game. Anyone else want to join? Would also be up for Barrage, though I’ve only played it once.

For Wingspan, there’s a dedicated app, which I highly recommend, though obviously BGA is “free”.

I would be up for some Ark Nova! One of my favorites at the moment.

Just want to put this out there in general for the timid: don’t worry about being a n00b, or playing a game for the first time etc. The games have rules and sometimes videos and tutorials right on the game page, and the rules are enforced by the app, so there’s no way to screw up! The worst you can do is just not take your turns in a reasonable amount of time. And even if you’re going to be away or something, just drop a note in chat.

For that matter, the mobile interface is generally great. I’ve been playing a friend in Ark Nova, and when I went away for the weekend, I played on my phone, and it was actually really easy. The one exception is a known issue on iPhones, where a held tap (which is used for “mouseover”) is intercepted by iOS for other features. Many games have a workaround (Ark Nova does this) where there’s a switch/button to enable “inspection” mode where you can tap something to get the mouseover.

So please, if anyone’s on the fence, please join in!

One slot left:

I need to learn how to play Ark Nova. It sounds cool.

Join the game then!

I don’t want to be a drag. I may join a future game though.
