A retrospective on the board games that were new to me in July. I'd say Terraforming Mars and Concordia were easily the highlights! http://www.myboardgameguides.com/blog/july-retrospective-5-games-that-are-new-to-me/

Also got a chance to play Terraforming Mars for the first time. The takeaway? Greenery hexes are not to be taken lightly. Good placement goes a loooong way. Love the personal economy-building aspects too.

True did Hibike Euphonium's Dream Solister OP theme and does another solid work for Hina Logi's opening theme, "Butterfly Effector". Our thoughts: http://blog.animeinstrumentality.net/2017/07/preview-hina-logic-from-luck-logic-op-single-butterfly-effector/

Evolution the Board Game! My first time playing meant more mechanics exploration rather than optimization. The push/pull between carnivoring it up and herbivore defense is pretty neat as is the need to grow body size and population. I want to try the Climate version now.

Found myself really charmed by what Yokohama pulled off. The mechanics are superficially similar to Istanbul, but I found myself liking it a whole lot more!

The Oregon Trail Card Game has been pilloried and rightly so. My experience at a recent meetup showed me why. On the other hand, I got to preview The Lost Expedition which is honestly what the Oregon Trail game could have been had they put together better mechanisms. I enjoyed the latter quite a bit!

A short trip to Washington State yielded watery sounds I don't hear often enough of in SoCal.

Bungou Stray Dogs soundtrack is worth checking out. Excellent orchestrals and jazzy melodies to fill you for days. http://blog.animeinstrumentality.net/2017/04/bungou-stray-dogs-original-sound-track-2-review/

Yuri on Ice's soundtrack is filled with so much character that it easily deserves 9 JJ Styles out of 10! My thoughts: http://blog.animeinstrumentality.net/2017/03/oh-skatra-yuri-on-ice-original-skate-song-collection-review/
