A game? Why yes!

A few game to report since my wildly late last post.

First up I picked up ‘Small World’ and gave it a try a few times.  First game was a five player game at the Shoppe on the day I picked it up.  Solid game, easy mechanics.  The rules make it sound actually harder than it is.  I then played the Eldest twice each of us taking one game and then as a palate cleanser with Steve after some play testing.   The game is pretty fun and Im sure it will be on the rotation for a while as it is fast and fun.

Play testing The conversion continues, just real slow.  Between travel and work and kid stuff (dont ask!) Ive gotten less time than ever, but Steve and I have had two solid sessions and we are looking at one more major change then ship out the next version for the grand editor to review.  If folks are interested in a bit of play test, let me know and Ill hook you up!

Songs of Blades and Heroes Campaign I did get a game in this Thursday and won!  Erics Orcs, that thrashed me last time, took a bit of a beating during a Break Through game.  However his warboss still was able to kill Bobbie Jr. dead  Long live Bobbie the Third!  In the end I left Eric with a few archers as the remainder of Victors Boys exited the board scoring victory points for the win.  Thanks for the Game Eric. 

Civ V was released this week and I did down load it on Wednesday, but only played a bit of the tutorial.  Since I have nothing planned this weekend but helping the Elder move back in to the house Im hoping to get some evening hours to play a few dozen turns



I blog, honest

Who dares disturb this monument to John's past gaming!? Oh! It's John himself!

Glad to hear you getting at least a little time to relax and bust out the boardgames & minis.

Hey Adam,

I feel bad that I have left you so high and dry on the Privateer stuff. I am glad that you are picking up my slack with out too much of an effort. I owe you a few beverages sometime down the road.

I'm holding out for the 2nd. I need to bounce off The Other Half still.

That'd be cool. I just ran the date change for our November event by Norm, so that should pan out ok.

We're supposed to meet up with him sometime in November to plan out our 2011 events, but he has not yet set a date for that (Is that Irony?)

Anyway, I'll make it a point to be at the Shoppe this Saturday in the hope that you get a kitchen pass.

Take it easy!
