I’m trying to catch up on feedback today so here are a few things that have been going on or that I will expand on later.
Game Design update:
- Comatose is coming along well. I solved a major issue that I didn’t even know I had until playtesting and playing Fiasco – Story advancement mechanic. I think I have a built in solution for this.
- The Gold Rush – static right now as I concentrate on Comatose
- The Interman Game – I may have Photoshop back up soon so this one will be ready playtesting soon.
- Becky Sharp/Lorna Doone DeLongpre – Lorna comics should be out soon according to Micah so I should jump on this one soon.
I’ve been attending Game Night at Hypermind in Burlington over the last few months. I’ve played a lot of new games and met some really nice people. Here are a few of the the games:
- Tribune – I was surprised that I liked this one. The theme didn’t grab me but the game play is great.
- China – This was fun and surprisingly simple to play. Scoring is complex though.
- Thunderstone – My first time playing the hot new mechanic of deck building. It was ok but I see that experience with the game would probably make it more fun. I want to play Dominion now.
- Endeavor – This was a fun area control/trading game.
- Escalation – Lots of fun
- Cuttthroat Caverns – Fun but a little long. I need a replay of this with some house rules I think.
- Witch’s Brew – This one needs another play. I think I may like it but I don’t know.
- Roll Through The Ages: This one is on the Buy List. It’s fun and challenging. And you can play solo.
- Descent – Road To Legend – This one is great. We started it this past week. It’s fun and dungeon crawl-y.
- Pandemic – 3 plays of this so far. What a fun game! I’m setting up a solo game today to play during the day.
- Finally the gem so far – Macao. Wow! Do I like this one! Simple yet challenging. I could not stop thinking about how I could play differently and about strategies this week. It is definitely on The Buy List at the top. I can’t wait to try out my strategy.
