  1. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fowers/burgle-bros-2-the-casino-capers/description My sister and I love the original Burgle Bros 2. We are using it this year as one of our 10x10 Challenge games. Sometimes its fun to play as bad guys 😈 The sequel looks exciting with some new twists.
  2. Recently got in: Bargain Quest--read the rules which didn't take long. Looking forward to playing this soon. Snowdonia--Very impressive production. Can't wait to play this one too. Skull Tales: Full Sail!--got lots of minis to paint with this one. Hearing from others that there are a lot of errors in the rule book. I haven't read it myself yet. Designer is working on a pdf rule update. Here is my update for Kickstarters I am waiting on: 2019 The Isle of Cats Roll Player: Fiends & Familiar Big Box Roam (plus Haven) Seasons of Rise (plus Tussie Mussie) 2018 Awkward Guest (shipping soon) Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of Venice Zoo-ography Skulk Hollow (shipping soon) D6: Dungeons, Dudes, Dames, Danger, Dice & Dragons! Incoming Transmission Tang Garden 2016 Whelps to Wyrms (Printed but developer ran out of money to ship them. They are sitting in a warehouse somewhere in China.)
  3. I got Snowdonia in today, and I must say I was blown away by it. First off, the box is huge....like in Gloomhaven huge. The box is about the same height, but a bit shorter in length. The components inside....wow. Plastic trays, elegant boxes to hold cards, extra baggies I didn't need because almost everything fit in the trays. Three booklets. The wooden tokens are amazing. Both their shapes and silk screen really shine. One green meeple was broken. I might can glue it back, but I might ask for a replacement. While I wish it was not broken, I'm not upset by it. Accidents happen during production. Again, I'm blown away by the overall quality of the game.
  4. I wanted to buy this game, but had to pass due to budget. It looks great. How did you like it?
  5. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/953146955/sleeping-gods Here you go, Barb. I want to buy it, but its sooo expensive. I love Near and Far & Above and Below. Great story-tellling games. I'm sure this will be an awesome game too, but $120 for base and expansion is costly. I may wait for retail on this one. I did back Ryan's last Kickstarter for Raom.
  6. That is very detailed indeed. Impressive project he has.
  7. Those trees are a really nice touch for that game.
  8. Here are some of my latest creations. The two warriors and the pirate with the chest are from beginner Reaper minatures that I've had sitting around for over a year and finally decided to paint them.
  9. Maybe that is what the Wrym game designer should have done. Asked for volunteers to donate more to shipping. I would do so. Better than my game sitting around in a warehouse forever. I am glad Unbroken is shipping. Sometimes honest designers run into serious problems and have to make hard decisions. Many learn from those mistakes and continue forward. Many of us backers are forgiving of mistakes if the creators are honest and upfront.
  10. I own 3 of those on your Shelf of Shame: Founders of Gloomhaven, Rise of Tribes, and Dinogenics. I have played all of them. Founders of Gloomhaven is fun in the beginning, but both my sister and I get confused and frustrated when building 3 tier buildings. You have to backtrack through 2 other layers of buildings to figure out how to properly split the points for the Tier 3 buildings, which often leads to math debates. While I love the concept of the game, I just wished it was easier to figure out the math part. We could handle the Tier 2 math ok, just its too much for Tier 3. Dinogenics I played twice. Liked it. But my sister added Dinosaur Island to our 10x10 challenge this year, so when we play a dinosaur theme game, Dinogeics is overlooked for now. So much so, that I passed on buying its expansion. I do plan to get back to playing Dinogenics, but we have to complete the DI 10 plays first. Rise of Tribes I love. Another game on our 10x10 Challenge. Its been very successful when I take it to Gaming Meetups. I think I need to only play it 2 more times this year to finish its part in the challenge. I won't admit how many games on on my own shelf...but it has been growing lately with new Kickstarters coming in.
  11. I have Clans of Caledonia and during my first play considered it an instant classic Euro. Great game. Most likely I will put it on the 10x10 Challenge next year. Its many components are awesome. My one complaint is there is no option to sweep the market and get new orders. Neither my sister or I like to take orders where you kill an animal for meat, so we kept avoiding those. But when almost all of them are meat orders, we become very stuck. So we finally homeruled that if you pay money, then you can sweep the market. Some other games have that rule such as Monarch. I thing we settled on the price of 3 gold per sweep.
  12. Soon, so soon. Your patience will soon be richly rewarded.
  13. My sister and I have played both several times. Mint Delivery is our favorite of the two.
  14. I'll never launch one either. Far too much work. I prefer just enjoying the games, not designing them. Its tough enough writing books in my spare time (what little I have). Gaming does consume too much of my time.
  15. I'm intrigued. You will have to post a link when it goes live. I didn't know you were involved in making Kickstarters. That is cool.
  16. Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/clever-unicorn-games/weird-alchemy Here is a cheap, crazy game. I had to post it here, because in the expansion, they included this guy. Thought @tgpumpkin might like him.
  17. I sooo want to play your mega-Carcassonne. We only have 3 or 4 expansion. Need so many more.
  18. My budget is already blown. No fair. 😢
  19. Great pictures, Barb. I really love that background which adds epicness to the pictures. Would love to own some of those skulls.
  20. @Zoxe those tentacles minis are awesome. Could have used them the other day when playing Pathfinder. Our ship was attacked.
  21. Recently got in: Tiny Epic Mechs--read the rules today. Have not played yet. Expedition: the Future--not read the rules. Need to play this new expansion soon. Here is my update for Kickstarters I am waiting on: 2019 The Isle of Cats Roll Player: Fiends & Familiar Big Box Roam (plus Haven) 2018 Awkward Guest (shipping soon) Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of Venice Zoo-ography Skulk Hollow (shipping soon) D6: Dungeons, Dudes, Dames, Danger, Dice & Dragons! Bargain Quest & Black Market (shipping soon) Incoming Transmission Snowdonia Tang Garden Skull Tales: Full Sail! (should arrive any day now) 2016 Whelps to Wyrms (Printed but developer ran out of money to ship them. They are sitting in a warehouse somewhere in China.)
  22. Wish I had a friend who had the game so I could play it. I need more nearby games who own games. Instead, my friends look for me to buy the games then they play them. Does make for fun gaming days.
  23. Yep, I shall blame you for the Isle of Cats. So cute. How could I not get it
  24. Ahh, Sawdust looks very happy playing with his new toy. Great to see a video of him in action. Great gift, @WxCougar.
  25. Cute video. I want the game now, but I've reached the end of my budget already. I'm backing Isle of Cats and Roll Player expansion. Perhaps I will get in in retail later.
