Break Time!

Hey guys,

Small update today, as I’m writing from my phone. I’m on holiday! And currently in Western Australia, meaning I have limited access to my board games. The games that I managed to sneak into my luggage but have yet to play:

  • Arkham Horror LCG
  • The Ravens of Thri Saharashi
  • Morels (a.k.a Fungi)

However the games on my mind are definitely the heavier titles: Spirit Island and Terraforming Mars. It really bugs me I can’t play these right now! These titles have really changed my perspective on heavier games. They both aren’t rules dense but have so much depth of decision making that the game stays with you long after you play it. I love that.

Now, let’s talk Gen Con. There are some great looking games coming out, in no particular order:

  • Shadows: Amsterdam
  • Reef
  • Yellow & Yangtze
  • Everdale
  • Coimbra
  • Forbidden Sky
  • Caper
  • Speakeasy Blues
  • Trade of Tigris
  • Arkham Horror 3rd Edition
  • Poetry Slam

I’d also add in Root, but I’m hoping by the time I get back from holiday it’ll be on my doorstep. Otherwise I’m definitely going to keep my eyes open for these in the coming year.

Did you see anything interesting? Let me know! Otherwise see you all in two weeks!

  1. Forbidden Sky does sound intriguing.

    And you”sneaked” Arkham Horror LCG with you?

    I know it’s not big like it’s parent game, but it still seems a lot to sneak. 😛

    Hope you had/have fun! (I know I’m late to the party)


    1. I just took two decks, and then the base game acts. Fit into the palm of my hand! Didn’t get to play though, too scared of my judgemental mother in law, and her lack of care about where she puts her food.

      1. I loved Arkham horror… was probably one of my favorite games. And I dutifully bought every single expansion for it over the years…. which slowly broke the game little by little until it became (imo) an unplayable disaster of a game. So I’m excited for the new ‘feel’… although in all honesty… I might be over it now. Unless it has something very new and dynamic to offer. I’m also a bit over fantasy flight and their relentless pursuit of profit.

        1. Yeah, I know that feeling. FFG are like an extremely slow leech, sucking the money from my wallet. Conversely, I feel like it’s a better model than CMON’s one time only, you-must-impulse-buy-this massive kickstarter promises.
