Gaming Journal Week 19 of 52

One of the big highlights of this past week was celebrating Star Wars day!  We played a few Space themed games and mostly just had a good time!  Another highlight was getting Star Realms a day early for Mother’s Day, although haven’t played it enough!  That will change soon though.

Had fun trying out our friend brother's prototype galaxy race game.

Star Realms

  • First time playing, 2 player, 15 min game session
  • Quick deck building game that can go up to 6 players with more decks
  • Was impressed by the art and theme
  • Don’t usually like heavy combat games, but hoping this is light and fast enough to still enjoy it.
  • Will be playing again in order to write a review


Prototype Galaxy Race Game

  • First time playing, 5 player, 1.5 hour game session
  • Our friend’s brother made this game and was play testing it with us
  • It’s a base building, space race game
  • We realized it wasn’t balanced for 5 players, so only played a half game
  • Still tons of fun and hoping to play test it again


Sentinels of the Multiverse

  • 10th time playing, 5 player, 1 hour game session
  • Took special care to setting the difficulty right on the game
  • Had fun even though we lost the first game!



  • 7th time playing, 5 player, 20 min game session
  • Hilarious and fun as always!
  • One of the best party games that I own.


Marvel Dice Masters

  • 3rd time playing, 2 player, 15 min game session
  • Bought a few more boosters, a playmat, and a dice bag
  • Always a good game to break out in the evenings as it’s short and light
  • Excited to try out different combos!
