Had half an hour to kill last night with my wife. We decided to pull out Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small. It's a great game, and not nearly as intense as the original... however it still got quite heated and my wife crushed me 54 to 34. Ouch. I'm thinking my winning streak is over...

The board game I'm backing on KS, is using real carbon-steel parts as player markers. How cool is that???

That's too bad. I hope they at least get a voice actor that has done batman before, like some of the actors from the DC animated movies (not all were played by Conroy)

We finally had a nice big game of 7 Wonders with the Leaders and Cities expansion packs. Both Leaders and Cities added a large amount of depth to the game. However we ran into problems when we were drafting our Leaders (people were drafting out of turn and messing up the order). We also found that we had to keep looking up everything, the symbology isn't nearly as straight forward as the base game. Also, 2 expansion packs makes setup a lot more messy, there was cards everywhere! However I highly recommend these games. It's an awesome way to kill 30-40 mins!

Dragon's Hoard only has 60 hours left on Kickstarter. It is at 435% funding! I'm super excited for this one! Most beautiful art I've seen in a game.

Backing another game on Kickstarter. This game looks pretty cool. It's a worker placement game, where you are an inventor of a one of the very first cars. You need to build the car, without it blowing up, and the design has to be good enough to sell to the investors. Building the car can come from new parts, a junk yard, or from the black market. Seems pretty fun, and it's at a pretty good price too.

Yeah if you check out YouTube, you can find a video of Sony's version!

Though the Sony ad doesn't show much.

I'd like to see how these stack up against the oculus rift.

Not too sure if you guys are looking for a 2 player game, but this game is pretty great. Got it last week. It's based off the game Agricola, but this one is a slimmed down version and is for just 2 players. It is a very quick play at only 30 minutes. It's pretty fun, you build a farm, with animals. You make your fences, upgrade your house, make feeding troughs, collect animals and breed them. It's got some fun strategy. I recommend.

The food here is wonderful, however going for dinner is a total rip-off. If you get the Saturday lunch special, for around $20 you get salad, rice and naan bread with your dish, whereas the dinner price is $18 just for a small chicken dish, to which you then have the choice of adding rice for $5 dollars and naan bread for $3. Seriously, FIVE BUCKS for a bowl of rice when I'm paying $18 for one chicken breast?!
