I got that game too, but haven't cracked it open yet.  Did the mat come with it?  It's cool looking.

I think that is the one that came with Out of the woods.

I finally got Deja Vu out on the table Sunday.  It was a fun game, but 3 out of 4 times the honeycomb had to get refreshed, it was me giving all the goodies back to Greg and Drew.  smh

Nemesis made its debut tonight.  A little bit of a learning curve, but OMG is this a fun game.  I was all set to win the game, but one last noise check did me in.  An intruder landed in my room and I was unable to get to the escape pod before the jump to hyperspace and I got atomized.  smh.

I was able to get Founders of Gloomhaven (which I got for christmas) on the table this week.

Definitely a deep euro game.. everyone enjoyed it, but it took quite some time between explanation and learning curve.

Been playing Gugong and we REALLY like it but long-term I think it's going to really need an expansion to add more depth to the game.

The support person asked me if I still had the 3 games.  I said yes, but I guess I have to wait another 2 weeks for her to get back to me now.

Nemesis!!!  I won on the last round!  (Third time playing the game, and they've all been fun).  I was the only player to survive this time.  Ha!  You can see on the lower left corner of the board track that it's sitting on the last space before the ship jumps to hyperspace.  Drew (scientist) was the first to bite the dust when an event card killed anyone infected with a larva.  Tracy (soldier) died from 3 serious wounds.  Greg (scout) lasted longer, but also succumbed to 3 serious wounds.  The last 5 rounds I played by myself!  I almost didn't make it into hibernation because of a stupid fire.  I had to spend 3 rounds getting to the fire suppression room, repair the malfunction, put out the fire, and get back to the hibernatorium.  Then a creeper dropped onto me with 2 rounds left.  Greg wins if I die.  I win if I hibernate and I won the bet that one of the two unknown  engine statuses was operational.  But I couldn't hibernate until the creeper was killed or retreated.  Almost killed him in the first round.  He retreated in the second round, and I was able to hibernate on my very last action before the ship jumped to hyperspace.

Ironically I was the only one to survive last night (different group).  I hibernated with 7 rounds to go, and sat back hoping none of them wanted to blow up the ship, and watched the other four people get wiped out one by one.  😛

p.s. BoRo and Chechen CoCo...

Every game of Nemesis has been completely different for me.  Saturday night was crazy.  Jaemus (soldier) and I (scout) were playing with 3 newbees: John (captain), Keith (mechanic), and Roger (scientist).  I was on my own a lot, and had killed my only intruder without being attacked.  Keith was pretty injured, so I fixed the malfunctioning emergency room.  He used the technical corridors to get into the emergency room, and started healing some serious wounds.  I head to the "sleeping lounge", but I stopped after one room move to allow Keith to follow me without a noise check as that would for sure spawn an intruder.  He then follows and sets my room on fire with pyrotechnics, and leaves me behind.  That's what I get for helping out. SMH  Then John throws a Molotov Cocktail into the room Roger was in, killing him.  Roger takes over the intruders (being the first death).  John and I end up together in the "sleeping lounge", and he then orders me into a room with an adult intruder.  That's one sick captain.  What a dink.   Ironically, Roger is out for revenge and John was job one, and John ends up being the 2nd death.  Ha!  Karma does exist!  I evade the adult, and go back to the "sleeping lounge" and hibernate.  Keith runs into invader issues himself when Roger turns his attention to him after John bites the dust.  Jaemus realizes he's not going to achieve his objective (thus losing), and doesn't want me to be the only winner, so he heads to the engines and breaks the engines, and we all die in a fiery ball.  Another Dink!  That's the sci fi equivalent to I'm not going to be on the winning team so I'm taking my ball and going home.  Unfortunately no one can hear you scream in space...

Ironically, this was by far the most fun playing of the game.  Everyone was cheering for people to die.  Doug even left Terra Forming Mars, and encourages John to go all sociopath on us.  When Roger forced John to do a noise check, and John ended up pulling the queen, a roar went up to the point everyone left the TFM table and came over to watch the bloody finish.  John was the one laughing the hardest when he pulled the queen out of the bag.

Played Feast for Odin with the new Norwegians expansion.

If you've played and liked the base game - I DEFINITELY suggest picking up this expansion!  With out group, it made the game much more competitive (8 points between 1st and 4th) when usually there'd be a 20 or 30 point difference.

I tried out Chronicles of Crime with Linda and Joleen on Sunday.  None of us knew what we were doing obviously as our boss at Scotland Yard kept calling us rookies and threatening to fire us unless we went back to the scene of the crime because we are terrible at gathering clues.  Not only did we have the wrong suspect, we hadn't even uncovered the real murdered.  smh

We played Nemesis, the "gift" that keeps on giving.  Yesterday we tried playing 6 player coop.  I was a little worried about playing with one more player than the max, but it moved along pretty well.  I had quite the adventure.  We HAD to kill the queen and wipe out the nest before we could leave the ship, so we ended up trying to make noise to get the queen out of the bag, but the witch would not leave the bag!  Not sure how many others got pulled first, but it was quite a few (like 10???).  I played the captain, and had horrible luck.  Twice I was infected by a larvae (once while I was actually still sitting in the surgery from getting the first one removed), and I was one light wound away from dying.  I tried to limp to the evacuation room with the unlocked escape pod because I didn't think I could get to the sleeping room without being attacked.  I got there safely, but of course I blew my sound check.  I managed to kill the adult, but it cost me from being able to escape during the round.  Of course the event card caused the escape pod to prematurely jettison (the room erupted with laughter), and forced me to try and make it to the sleeping room.  I managed to make it there in time, but the guy before me surrounded the room with noise.  Not good.  On my last possible action before the ship jumped (and would vaporize me), I had to make a noise check for going to sleep.  Only the X (quietly) or the danger sides of the D10 would save me.  I rolled an X!!!  High fives from the other survivors (JC and Jaemus).  Bob, Joel, and Doug went to sleep, but had no time to check/clean up any infection.  All ended up infected, and therefor died in their tubes.

Earlier in the day, we played Dinogenics.  Fun game, though there seems to be no go way to catch up once you get behind.  Roland was able to get the first dino, and was dealt a fabulous rule breaking card, and didn't give the first spot for 4 seasons.  By that time, it was impossible to catch up.  I ended up going the mutant route (though didn't start soon enough).  Anyone that has played it, do you have and suggestion for a house rule or two for allowing a person to be able to get back into the game?  One thought I had was that you couldn't be first player for more than two times in a row.  If you do, then you are last the next turn.  What do you guys think?

I really like Dinogenics. I've only played it twice so I don't yet know enough to give advice. I love the artwork better than Dinosaur Island. I can't decide which of the two games I prefer. My sister prefers Dinosaur Island. I'm glad to have both in my collection.

We decided on a house rule where you can only go first twice.  If you are due to go first a third time, then you go last.

I went to a friend's house to play Mahjong on Saturday.  In my regular groups of game players, I'm one of the oldest or the oldest.  On Saturday, I was definitely the youngest.  But that wasn't the only culture shock.  Socialization was priority 1, eating was 2nd priority, and game playing was a distant third.  At least at the table I was at.  The other table played almost 4 games before my table completed 1, though they were teaching me the game.  7 games were completed on the other table, by the time we completed our 2nd one.  😬  But once I gave up caring about playing and had learned the rules, I had a lot of fun.
