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.

I mean, I can rerun scenarios to accrue what I need, but like why is that a requirement?
just feels poorly fleshed out

We just kind of house ruled that you can retire when you want if you've been trying to do your goal forever.
Taking a break from the site.

I believe Frosthaven is modifying retirement goals so that you start with an initial batch that should all be approximately equally doable, and then you unlock quests with harder to complete/more specific requirements as you advance.

i really wanted to take the other goal
but having a Sunkeeper on a quest to re-awaken a dark god seemed super thematically wrong

Is Gloomhaven worth the very high price tag?
I have semi-photographic memory in that I remember a few photos.

I would suggest playing first if you can, but if you enjoy it, absolutely!

We have had it for more than a year and still regularly play even though we finished the main campaign long ago. There is just a lot of content there. There are still characters and secrets I haven't opened despite having probably 50+ sessions played.

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 want to get Jaws of the Lion so badly but I don't want to play it solo. Stupid pandemic.

My group has recently started meeting again since we are all basically working from home and limiting outside world exposure.

We started Clank! Acquisitions Incorporated two weeks ago. I'm enjoying it quite a lot. The flavor is well written and funny, and I enjoy the light deck building play of Clank.

My only complaint so far is that the campaigns take a bit to set up and read through (maybe an additional 20 minutes depending on how chatty the group is being and how much sticker placement there is). Last night's game felt like it took us forever to actually get to the play. But it is pretty fast once everything gets rolling.

Overall, it's been one of the more fun legacy games I've played recently.

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.

Finally playing this with more than two people. It's nice to have a moment that I'm not looking at charts.
