This is why I tend to sleeve everything.
Non-tabletop players won't understand what's funny about this strip; Tabletop players don't see this subject as laughing matter. So lose-lose, basically. W

This is not why I sleeve my cards. I sleeve them to prevent them from being marked over time due to shuffling and play. I also find that sleeved cards are easier to shuffle than non-sleeved cards.

Taking the term "Abstract Game" to a whole new level.
 
Re-posted, with the funny itself.
Not that a picture or some text can be funny; at most, they are merely reflections of light on your retina. "Funny" is a shallow Structuralist, para-Romanticist concept. At BEST.

Let's make this clear: I'd play all of these.

Forbidden Stars last night. We instantly put it on the schedule for next week. The Warp storms are definitely an interesting mechanic.

Our first play of My First Stone Age. It's his first worker placement game! Fun little twist by adding a memory mechanic to give kids an edge.

Another great game of REX. Sol, Xxcha, and Hacan take the board this time. The Lazax, Jol-Nar, and Letnev lost big in the last round. No treachery among teams even though we added the betrayal cards.

+Paul Stefanini​ yeah it's a retheme of the dune boardgame with the TI universe. They couldn't get the rights to do a dune reprint.

Finally got a chance to play Patchwork last night after getting the app. The physical game is definitely on my list now. I would describe it as head to head Tetris in slow motion.

American Girl sells tiny playable versions of Blokus.

OK, I have to admit I snatched the content from Reddit.

I also had no idea how to categorize this, I had to resist putting it under miniatures.
Find Pizza Party Set at the official American Girl site, featuring the dolls, clothing, furniture, accessories, books, and more that girls love!

The ever impending Kickstarter avalanche.
 
A new strip! This era of board games of
Kickstarter carries some unexpected risks.

This happens every time.
 
A new strip!
Codenames is a clever game, but that doesn't mean YOU have to be.

I had never read this Web comic before, but found it very funny.

Got my copy of the 51st State Master Set today! Components look great. Way nicer than the Toy Vault edition I just sold. Leaving the expansions sealed for now, hopefully I can get a game in this weekend.

Got another game of REX in Tuesday night. Really loving this one. This time we were lucky enough to fill all 6 slots. There was a lot of risk/reward calculating going on.

Finally got Oddville back to the table last night. Great midweight game packed into a small package. As far as I can tell it's a pretty overlooked game. My FLGS always puts it on deep discount when they have sales. Try it if you haven't!

I agree as well! I teach this game to just about anyone that comes to the house to play games.
