Sprouting in back yard :)
Roll For The Galaxy (RftG) and Tokaido made it to the table at Steve’s. Roll For The Galaxy is a newly released game, similar to Race for the Galaxy (which I have never played), and I am really enjoying it.
RftG scratches a number of gaming itches: Exploration, Civ building and … Dice! Tokaido is a lightweight but fun game of collecting stuff on a journey to Tokaido (Tokyo). It came out in 2012, but I only recently discovered it. Pretty board. :)
I only took one picture for Roll For The Galaxy (too absorbed!)…
Games with the kids tonight- Olivia’s choice was CooCoo; she was thrilled to win by placing last cylinder on CooCoo without causing him to topple!
We got a three-person play of Xia: Legends of a Drift System in last weekend at Andy’s. Steve and I are willing to give it another go; this was a short “learning” game to only 5 VP (about an hour or so). Next play we will give it the full treatment, at least 15-20 VP and use the non-player controlled “dummy” factions.
