Game night

Did some gaming with Steve and Johnny again last night. First up was Lost Legacy: The Flying Garden. It’d be easy to summarise this as a more in depth, tactical Love Letter. What it loses in simplicity it gains in depth with a little more variety and chance a core part of the game. I’m not sure it’s as “fun” as Love Letter, but it was a nice game to start with. Steve won the race to 3 points, the cad....

Memoirs of a Quarrior

I’m not dead! Yay! I played some games! Double yay! I’ll try and keep this short and to the point, as one of the reasons for the dearth of posts here lately is a lack of time, and an increasing tenancy to write longer & longer posts.

Thank Crunchie It’s Friday

Friday is from Friedemann Friese’s Freitag Project, a series of games loosely linked with the theme of Friday. No it doesn’t make much sense to me either, but Friedemann does have green hair so it probably makes perfect sense to him. You’re Man Friday, helping Robinson Crusoe escape from the island where his ship has capsized and stranded him. You must train Robinson up so that he can overcome the various perils of...
