Re: tabletop

I have Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. It's definitely an unusual game but very entertaining. I also have The Mansion Murders expansion for it with five more cases to solve.

Always wanted to get its sister game Gumshoe, set in San Francisco in the 30s.

No games for Christmas this year that I know of. Just shoes, clothes, and gift cards.

I'm hoping Santa will bring me the expansions to Lords of Waterdeep. However, a helpful elf has informed me that the current lot of games have a misprint on the cards, so it may have to wait...

Apparently there are some misprinted "upside down" mission cards in one of the printing runs. It doesn't hurt the game play at all, but my friend is a little obsessive and he hates that he has to always flip the cards around.

Upside down? Lol! I can see where that can cause some issues...

Re: tabletop

Oh, that, yeah it is a little annoying but you get used to it. I thought you meant there was something on one of the cards or buildings I was thinking, 'crap, what have we been playing wrong!'.

It was pretty fun.

Re: tabletop

So. Can I safely assume that I earned some "cool wife" points today? Rather than discouraging my husband, I actively encouraged him to add a 4 foot by 6 foot piece of (nice looking) birch to our table so we can have a decent board game space.

I am going to insist on a nice tablecloth for when we're not playing...but I hope I earned some points today!

I'm actually looking forward to a marathon gaming session now that we have enough space for the game, expansion packs, game pieces, character cards, food, drink, AND friends!

Happy holidays (and gaming) everyone!

Re: tabletop

Ha that's awesome! We always play around my friend's and the table is a little small.

We were up until 3am playing Lords of Waterdeep and Catan. Probably played one game too many but oh well.

Re: tabletop

I think I have the TNG core set. I've seen the TOS version but not any of the other elements yet.

One of the greatest boardgames of all time. Long ago they had a number of expansions for the game with new cases. Loved the game dearly.

I have TOS and TNG: The Next Phase. I haven't played the TNG one yet though. I'm getting into the TOS one by man is it confusing. The rulebook leaves a lot of unanswered questions and some of the text on the cards is ambiguous. I am looking forward to the day when I can get Kirk, Spock and Bones on my bridge though.

I did get this for my birthday so I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'm disappointed that it seems really difficult to get the expansion cases .

Re: tabletop

So, I've started getting together with a small group of friends for gaming sessions, and I'm already looking forward to the next one. I've been looking for a game with simple rules that doesn't take all that long to play, about 30-60 min.

Been looking at these:
Coup
Gloom
Gauntlet of Fools

Anyone have any experience with those? Was thinking on Ticket to Ride, but I'm unsure if our group is going to be receptive to it. From the looks of things, I think I might want to consider Munchkin.

Re: tabletop

I haven't played any of those, but if you want quite quick games...

Muchkin is okay, although it's gotten a bit repetitive for me. How many are in your group? Here's a review I wrote.

Smash Up
King of Tokyo
Dixit
Alhambra
Small World

Those are all games that should fit into the time you specified so you should check those out.

The Resistance is SO much fun but you need at least 5 people, and as long as your group are willing to lie to each other and try to psych each other out it's a blast.
