I am very impressed with this game. What does it for me is the interesting bidding and setting prices mechanic.

Codenames happens to be on Coolstuffinc's weekly sale. $9.99. Just in case anybody was on the fence about trying it out.

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.

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.

Don't stay home in November. Vote. I don't care for who. Write in someone, vote 3rd party, vote for local officials, vote for state officials, vote for Congress, vote for the Senate, vote for anybody. Vote for whoever you can stomach. Just vote.

If you don't have a vote, no politician will ever feel like they need to earn it.

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

I hear people say all the time that the cards wear out. I cant say Ive played my games enough to experience that. 100+ plays of Dominion and the cards still look good. They shuffle way better too.
I could understand for a hard to find or super expensive game, but for a normal $30-50 games if I play it enough to wear out the cards, I got my money worth.
Worst case is somebody spills something on the cards. Its happened, it sucks, but Ill take that over the annoyance of dealing with 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.

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.
