This week was filled with new gaming which is always a big highlight. Went to my local board game shop and purchased Council of Verona and The Builders. Also borrowed Firefly from a friend and bought LOTR Fellowship Deck Builder at Barnes and Noble on major clearance. My favorite gaming highlights was trying out Firefly for the first time and playing a great game of Battlestar Galactica.
Firefly: The Board Game
- First time playing, 3 player, 3 hour game session
- Amazing theme, interesting mechanics, just brushed the surface of this game
- Perfect for fans of Firefly that want a deep and immersive game
- Hoping to play more soon!
The Builders: Middle Ages
- First time playing, 2 players, 15 min game session
- A good and short filler or gateway game.
- Lots of calculation which can be good for teaching math
- Very little player interaction, more of a solitaire game
- Will play again, next time with 4 players
Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring Deck Building Game
- First time playing, 2 players, 30 min game session
- Great theme, cool deck builder
- Pretty random due to ambushes along the path
- Less complex than Dominion
- Will play again with 4 players
- 3rd time playing, 4 players, 3 hour game session
- Wasn’t a cylon for the first time, but my husband was!
- Lost to the cylons but still a very fun game.
- Best part is accusing people of being a cylon.
7 Wonders w/Cities & Leaders Expansions
- 4 players, 45 min game session
- Played with the Leaders expansion for the first time in awhile
- Awesome as usual, we love having our cards sleeved
- Will play again and look forward to the Babel expansion coming out this year.
- 2 players, 1 hour game session
- Did Auren vs Chaos Magician so the cult track was very competitive
- Very different game as we did not build anywhere near each other
