How good? Because I do love some Betrayal.

Oh damn, I was just reading some reviews. I'm pretty sure I have to get Betrayal Legacy now. I didn't read a single bad review. I just need to find a group to play through it with.

After years of owning it I finally played Castles of Burgundy with a group. It pretty much meets all the descriptions. Loose kind of white-bread theme but full of interesting choices and decisions.

So Carnival Zombie 2nd Ed has just been announced on Kickstarter
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/62 ... nd-edition

Anyone ever played 1st Ed? I know it's kind of rare. But I watched a playthrough on GameNight and it looks like loads of fun, though a bit long to play

Any thoughts on Blood on the Clocktower? Seems like the nights would be disgustingly long, no?

Social Deduction literally just means it’s some sort of mafia clone

Shut up and sit down just did their review of it

It's interesting in that the storyteller has some leeway to actually affect the game and that players still get to talk+play after they die

But I can't justify grabbing it for the mayybe once or twice a year I'll both have enough people around to play it and those people will actually want to play something like that, esp. when I've already got two rooms and a boom

but two rooms and a boom sucks

i would be buying it probably if it weren't so expensive. if it was at the 40-50 dollar price point id back it. $100 (with shipping) is way too much. Maybe I'll wait for retail

sorry reck, this opinion is objectively bad

it's really not

I've played probably... 30 games of 2R1B.

The game is just bad. The sharing mechanics are half-assed and they don't work as well as they should on paper.
The special roles are way too hit or miss.
Far too often people just go "uhh fuck it ok I'll share" and by that point it's too late.
Or you can shit starting randomization of rooms and one team just locks the win from the start.

Do you play with full reveals only?

I have multiple people in my group who actually request that game

Normally I do three games of it and move on:
1. Bomber/Engineer + President/Doctor
2. Add Sniper/Target/Decoy + Shy Guys or some other team roles
3. Bullshit game with Hot Potato and Leprechaun and whatever else

I always do full reveals though

The biggest balance issue comes when numbers prevent leaders to be changed and one team controls both rooms

Has anyone else played the This War of Mine board game? It's a fascinating attempt to directly map the video game of the same name to a board game. Not all of it works, but I really enjoy the game.

I have not, but I've heard very good things about it.

Tomorrow I'm going to do an escape room where the theme is board games, anyone want to give me pointers? Like what even is a board game in this world?

Escape room with a board game theme sounds very weird. I'm not actually sure what to tell you to expect. Typically the themes are more concrete - like mafia, willy wonka, super heroes, houdini, etc.

I feel like expect chess? But Idk man.

There is a picture of a chess piece. My first choice was the virus room, but the groupon that saved like 60 bucks only applied to the "game room". It's also the easiest one.
