Online Gaming

I’ve found a new addiction – gaming online.  I’ve wondered about it for several years having found SpielbyWeb and Brettspielwelt.  I was hesitant because I don’t know how to play most of the games and didn’t want to waste someone’s time while I learned.

But a recent Dice Tower episode convinced me to try it.  Eric suggested Yucata.de.  It’s a site that has a lot of games.  And they happened to have Hey! That’s My Fish!.  So I invited Eric to a game.  It went well except I lost.  But I was intrigued.  So I picked out another game that I thought I would like, Arkadia, read the rules, and accepted an invite from the open games.

I got beat again but it was fun.  So I tried again.  More fun better score but still lost.  I tried Atta Ants.  Lost in the second turn.  The interface is wonky to me.  I’m currently in a Finca game and a Richelieu game on Yucata.de.

But the one I’m having the most fun with is Wallenstein on SpielbyWeb.  I played Shogun at the last game night I attended.  It was a blast.  And I told Chris we should try Wallenstein.  So he set up a game between myself, him, and Kenny.  It’s much fun.  The game is thinky which I like.  Lots of planning and strategy with some luck pitched in.  Very good.

So I recommend any one of these sites.  Also look at Michael Schacht’s site, michaelschacht.net for online versions of his games.  I need to try China or Web of Power.  Or look at MabiWeb.  I haven’t tried BSW yet but it seems to have the most games.

Check them out.

  1. Yeah, and it looks like you’re in the best position starting off year two in Wallenstein. I hope that Kenny realizes that the 1-point lead I have over you does not reflect the actual potential for victory between the two of us.
