New episodes every other Thursday!

1 game of Seasons, 2 rounds of Takenoko and 3 rounds of 7 wonders with a game of Love Letter on top, rounded off a great board game day. The bamboo was only knocked over once and the dice let me down every time, XD

So my friends and I played Diplomacy tonight. Ideally you have 7 players for 7 countries. We only had 4. The instructions say to then take two countries each (with someone getting the short end of the stick and having 1). So we just sort of randomly combined countries and the results were:
Russialy (Russia+Italy) 
Fraustria  (france+Austria-Hungary) sounds like the BEST milkshake flavor ever
Deutschkey (Deutschland and Turkey)   
Britain

An epic defense @Gencon 2014 by my 11 year old son using Vadar, after my A-Wing rolled 3 crits at close range.  He went on to win the game handily.  He later scored a night cap win by disintegrating my Slave I with a 4 hit proton torpedo strike, which I came up empty on my defense roll. 

While admittedly humbled, it was a proud moment to have my son beat me soundly at a game we both love.

Ned and Phil make a brave last stand. The corpses of their fellow survivors litter the streets. Zombicide can be so cruel.Dun dun duuuuun!

YES!!!  …It has arrived at last…. Let the survival begin……

Thanks Colby!!!

Small World, Big Winner - in his first ever game of Small World, our 10-year-old son scored 146 points! His dad, who has played the game the most, had only 80 and I had 90!

Finally won a game of Solitaire Mage Knight.  You can see Goldyx the Dragon Mage standing on his pile of corpses (chips) on the table.  Took me seven playthroughs but finally success.

How the board had moved around before my first move.  It gave me a chance to refill drinks and snacks at game night.  I went on to also lose LRC, and TtR India but we saved the castle in Castle Panic, so at least that is something!

So we asked to use the back room of a bar a couple weeks ahead of time.  They put up this sign, complete with “nerds” comment without any prompting from us.  It did get a couple to come back and join us while we played!  Shout out to Pacific Standard in Brooklyn, NY.

A selection of games played (and reading material) from our camping trip this past week. Can’t wait for the pre-order of Dead of Winter to arrive.
