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.

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?

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.

So, the game room was really fun, actually. We got out with time to spare, but it was their easy room chosen solely because of a groupon.

I plan to do one of their harder rooms when my sister is in town since she wants to do an activity with my and my girlfriend.

I would suggest trying it out in computer form first

It's absolutely free via Vassal, and if you already have Table Top Simulator it is free with that. I'm playing it over TTS and think it is actually better digital as physical would be a huge space investment and I wouldn't have anyone to play it with.

There is also a computer version in the works. Pre-release is available on Steam and will include full content when game is out.

I think a work friend recently bought it so maybe I'll talk him into letting my girlfriend and I try it out with him one time.

As it is, I did get him into his first D&D campaign, so we can ruin each other's lives at this point.

Personally, I kind of like Small World but definitely need the expansions.

I really want Root, it looks cool.

Had a game night on Saturday, but we had five players, so we only did Lords of Waterdeep and Cards Against Disney, still waiting on Brass: Birmingham and Gloomhaven to have the right amount of players to not just be me and my girlfriend with me struggling to know the rules, and her barely paying attention.

Just for clarity's sake, shaft.ed talked about Whitehall.

I did get my niece board games for Christmas this year, but she's three, so I got her Hi Ho Cherry-o Mickey edition, Enchanted Forest, and My First Carcassonne.

I'm definitely just going to be the board game uncle at this point because I have never seen the ukelele I bought her for her birthday which my sister insisted I had to get for her.

Also, will add, the same thing happened to a game from my childhood, Talisman. It's not nearly as much stuff as Gloomhaven but it is just as expensive now, since the previous edition was ended and they still haven't released the next one.

It's very hard to actually be bad at a TTRPG, basically, if you work with your teammates, you will be fine. I've been playing D&D for years, and am not great at roleplaying, but I still make it through.

So, for Christmas, I got a snazzy dice tower for my D&D addiction, also Dominion Adventures (Currently looking into getting Dominion since I don't have that yet).

Still have not played Cosmic Encounters, which I got last year for Christmas, and I also have a Justice League board game from my parents that I found cleaning up for them.

My fiancee got Avalon, Exploding Kittens and the expansion of Imploding Kittens, I still have not played Brass: Birmingham, either.

Basically, I have a long list of games to play...

Though, I did get to play Munchkin again, still a good game, would recommend.

My niece apparently likes Hi Ho Cherry-Oh Mickey, by the way, but tries to cheat when Pluto is rolled. So, she still needs to learn rules.

I briefly heard they tried playing Enchanted Forest but it was apparently too advanced for a 3 year old.

I have not tried playing any non D&D table games through the internets.

I know my Brother in law wants to play, and he's expressed some interest in the Cragheart. I plan on filling in whatever they need when we finally do that 4 player campaign with him and his girlfriend.

Note, he's not my brother in law yet, but that's just easier since I dislike my actual brother in law and will never talk about him in a game thing since he won't play anything he decides is stupid, which is everything.

Okay, I'll have to see what the fiancee feels like tomorrow, she's having a minor procedure on her foot, so, that's one possibility now that I have it if she needs to just be resting.

I was a little disappointed when I got Marvel Munchkin and discovered it's another 3+ player game. We have so many that we haven't played. I got Cosmic Encounters last year from her brothers and it's apparently also super involved.

Board games update.

Game night last night we played a round of Munchkin Marvel. It was fun.

Bigger, we had a four player game of Gloomhaven after dinner.

Party was Brother in Law was Cragheart, his Girlfriend was Tinker, my fiancée was Spell weaver, and I was Mindthief. Well, we made it by the skin of our teeth on the first encounter. On literally my last possible turn I hit the last enemy hard enough to take him out because I had a bunch of debuffs on hitting. So, wow, we need to be better.

Mindthief is Hella fun, though, even if I might be the fastest to level and the fastest to get the new class on it.

I got 25 exp in the first fight and I am 4/20 elites slain to get two minis.

I was the only one really thinking about XP gains and my fiancée who was the spell weaver kept forgetting to use the ones to give exp.

Also we got 10 just for finishing the thing. One of them I got a few extra XP just for the fact that I hit things with multiple debuffs. All of a sudden one of my cards got me 4 XP

Okay, I finally saw my parents yesterday after they went to my sister's for Christmas, and my sister's in laws were there who I don't trust to follow Covid guidelines, but, I got Marvel Villainous from my sister. I took a quick glance, and I have no clue what to make of it. Or even really what it is other than the fact that I'll likely be playing Killmonger just because he's a cool ass character.

I'm just going to make a list of games I have but have not yet played which I will need to do when I have the appropriate amount of people and the time to do them:
1. Brass - Birmingham
2. Cosmic Encounters
3. Dominion with Adventures expansion
4. Some weird Justice League board game I've had for years but have never played and don't remember the name of
5. Marvel Villainous

Not as bad as I thought.

New Gloomhaven question, I was working from home yesterday, so, of course, did lots of Gloomhaven watching and downloaded a manager app because I love using my phone for that.

There's what I would describe an eyeball class unlocked in the app. That's not a starting class, right?

I've heard really good things and that's why I bought it but it's just so intimidating how much there is in the rule book. And it's competitive so unlike Gloomhaven where we're just working together to figure it out as we go, my fiancée and I are a little worried about getting that one right

Yeah, there are also a few games I thought when we moved into our own place, I'd be able to play with people on game nights (Cosmic Encounters) but, we moved in March 1, 2020 in New York. Two weeks before the shut down started.

So we had a positive test in my office and are staying in while I make sure not to infect, last night the fiancée and I restarted our two player Gloomhaven with her on Scoundrel me on Brute. Turns out we both took a quest that gives us the sun class. What happens if we finish it with it already unlocked?

Also I finally did everything right and it's more fun. Have 26 exp because we got ten from our road event

I did see that we get a bonus item design and side scenario in the rules. I might just stick with it hers is alot harder to get since she needs a specific axe so I might be done with the class by the time she gets it

They certainly won't for Gloomhaven.

As with all board games, I think there's something to be said about having a physical copy and really moving things.

I also will share I have had some desire to start painting miniatures for Gloomhaven in particular, first, but then maybe just get D&D miniatures to paint as well. Anyone know how much the tools and paint would actually cost?

So my fiancée has been in a lot of pain from a possible kidney stone this weekend, due to this we stayed in today and played Marvel Villainous. I'm a fan of the fact that each character has a different win condition. Also Ultron beating Hela would only happen in this situation but I pulled it off as Ultron.

Yeah, I don't remember who got it for my fiancee, but it was a Christmas gift. It might be good for when you're drinking.

The other game we played again was Marvel Villainous.

Still liking that game, and it looks like I'll be trying Disney Villainous when my sister comes up in a few weeks.

Anyway, what we learned is that Ultron can beat Hela, Hela can beat Thanos and Taskmaster can beat Killmonger.

Power Grid is a game that I have not played. Though, I did play the original Disney Villainous a bit ago.

Was fun, though, my niece really needs to learn to follow rules and not storm out when something happens to her. That's more of a four year old problem than a game problem, though.

Yeah, in Hi Ho Cherry-O we have to stop playing with her if she cheats, so she'll learn. I said she was 4 but she's about a month short of her fourth birthday, so, she's still learning.

From what I hear, the one real balance issue is that the Queen of Hearts is entirely too easy to win as, but we had Ursula, Jafar and Maleficent in our game, so I have no personal experience with it.

So, quick question, this Saturday, we are doing a game night to ask several people to be in our wedding party, and I discovered that today there is a sale at Target for 25% off any toy, which seems to include board games.

Any good games worth getting that might be available over the next three days for 6 players?

For one thing, my sister needs to get a Steam account, and for another, I'm not buying it for my friends if they're never going to be online.

We were supposed to play a bunch of Civ games and it happened once years ago. I think with Civ V, before Civ VI came out.

I'd also be down for MS group.

What do you mean by “huge,” physical size? It’s not that much bigger than the base game I think (don’t have a physical copy with me but I checked online, and I think the width and height are the same, but legacy version is like 4 inches longer)

Gloomhaven is 30 pounds and now, 5 months later, I'm still getting shit about how it was actually 100 pounds.

Post Post #3988  (isolation #90)  » Mon Mar 15, 2021 9:14 am

So, game night was a success, we played a 5 player round of Marvel Villainous, I ended up winning as Thanos, mostly through pointing out that one of my opponents would win on the turn before I won when a good fate card came out. I successfully used a chain reaction of activating a stone to pull out my card that lets me both put a stone into another realm and relocate one ally, choosing Corvus Glaive, who can also move the Legions of Thanos with him, which was convenient because I needed both the stone that Corvus Glaive had and a second one I attached to one of my fiancee's two 1 strength allies. Anyway, I destroyed half of all life on Saturday.

We also played Cards Against Muggles which is not my favorite type of game but whatever.

And the Trolley Problem, which was fun enough.

Yesterday we played Disney Picture Trivial Pursuit.

So, lots of board games, not lots of real complex board games or interesting ones. 5 player Marvel Villainous is doable, despite the box only saying up to 4, though, it's just very long. I'd suggest removing all event cards when you do 5 players.
