Board Games!

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

it gets less fun every time I play it

I think part of the problem is that to actually be enjoyable and have interesting setups you need like 20+ people

Cosmic Encounter (that's pushing right up to an hour but great game), Machi Koro (3-5), Sushi Go, Wombat Rescue (3-5), Tokaido, 7 Wonders, Shadow Hunters (5-6)

I've been using a setup variation that you shuffle all of the cards together and draw until you have ten piles of unique cards as the buy pool (duplicates are put in a pile together). every time a pile is exhausted you draw until you have a card that isn't in the pool. it really improved the game for me.

I played Seasons once, but didn't feel like I had a very good grasp on what was going on until the game had ended. I really liked that the "victory point" was a currency instead of just an abstract thing.

We rocked the ass and balls of that game.

Spoiler:
To be fair though, Quarantiner and Medic is a deadly combo. We gave the medic (whose name was Dick Sledge) the cure from a distance upgrade after our first game and he basically was able to hold down the fort in an entire hemisphere for the remainder. Everything got a lot harder when Yoleesha turned traitor. YOLEESHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


Also, on Drunk Dice this week, Gamma and I discuss Catacombs. http://www.drunkdice.com/2016/11/22/flick-to-victory/

In post 2601, Panzerjager wrote:I posed this question to LLD, but I wanted more of a sound off because one of the games she mentioned immediately jumped toward the top of our list.

So me and my girlfriend have recently been getting into games, the ones we currently own are Machi koro, Patchwork, Jaipur, Pandemic, and Munchkin. We've played a number of the mainstream party games as well and stuff like parcheesi and monopoly, obv. Also, I've played MtG but not really interested in teaching her that. But the question is, what games should we look into/add to that would give us even more variety to what we have and open us up to more themes/mechanics? LLD suggested a hidden movement game and it appealed to us and it's definitely on the list.

The requirements would be: 4-5 players max but probably best played with 2-3 people and preferably not to much more complicated than pandemic(anything rated above a 3.25 on board game geek for complexity is probably going to be a hard sell).

Mystic Vale works well with two/three players

Catacombs is not that. I am interested, I do think it's cool, there are just a lot of obstacles.

there's also a learning curve

it's one of those games where it's not fun if you're not good at it, so it took me a few games to really enjoy it

plus 1v1 or 1v2 gives you a lot more reps with the discs than 1v4 so there's that as well

Maybe read the rules this time...? I can see how people could not like it, but it's not an "objectively bad" game. My first playthrough was pretty frustrating, but we were mistaken about a few key rules (like how stuns work) and when I played it with the actual rules it was a lot of fun
