What did we play aCross the Month of May

What have we played across the month and what is worth mentioning? We will tell you and we also give our initial feeling on our experiences with the games?

The Mind

the mind card game box

What a game The Mind is and we are still flabbergasted why this got us hooked as much as it does! We already did a crossword review on it here, but we cannot stop pulling this one out and try to crush those 12 levels. It can be so hard, but also so satisfying at the same moment. You will never know how intense people can stare at you until you have played this one.

Omen a Reign of War, sometimes the only path to get Zeus’s blessing is one by wit and carnage. A Kickstarter preview.

Omen a Reign of War, sometimes the only path to get Zeus’s blessing is one by wit and carnage. A Kickstarter preview.

John Clowdus and Kolossal Games are going big on this pimped new re-release of the Omen: a Reign of War series. There have been already two iterations of this saga and a lot of expansions of this BGG award nominee game saga since 2011. But we dare to say, this is going to be a big overhaul from the Smallbox editions and is going to be a fantastic line of games which this collaboration between these two publishers is bringing to us!

ON KICKSTARTER NOW!

Our board game adventures at Zuiderspel 2018 The 10th year anniversary edition

Our board game adventures at Zuiderspel 2018 The 10th year anniversary edition

Zuiderspel 2018 was a blast. It’s a smaller Dutch board game con, but it is also one which is accessible for a lot of people interested in tabletop gaming and it sets itself apart with being very easy-going, casual and very friendly. This year they celebrated their 10th year anniversary and made this a two-day experience instead of the regular one-day event.

At the last moment Erna and our oldest, Penny, could come along and we had the best time together playing games, having huge laughs and seeing a lot of board game friends from all around the Netherlands. This was by far the highlight of the con for us, but besides some photos on it, later on, we won’t bore you with our family stuff. But it is the cornerstone of our being nowadays as parents and it’s an integral part of our board game life. Hence the name of the blog. 🙂

What the World Would Be Like If Splicing Aliens Didn’t Exist

What the World Would Be Like If Splicing Aliens Didn’t Exist

Final game overview Chimera Station

So you are here to listen to why Alien splicing is the next best thing after sliced bread? Because, in all honesty, it is a freaking amazing way to make workerplacement cool again. When we saw Rahdo’s video on it a while back, with those Lego’s instead of the fancy ones in the retail version, we were sceptical if this was going to a playable thing or just a gimmick to stand out. We can say it is both!
