This weekend I got to play both Twilight Imperium 4th edition and Cosmic Encounter for the first time. Both of which was a blast! Cosmic Encounter was actually more entertaining than I thought. Twilight Imperium 4th edition is a game that many boardgamers say is a game that everybody needs to play. I might notContinue reading “TI4 and Cosmic Encounters”

Tiny Epic Galaxies
A little deep dive into a game that just makes me smile. And I am not really certain why. Tiny Epic Galaxies is a game with a tiny epic galaxy in a little box. Gamelyn games have made it their business to make small box games that pack a big punch. This is a reallyContinue reading “Tiny Epic Galaxies”
Wingspan and Castles of Burgundy.
This weekend I had a little time over for some boardgaming. A friend came over and we played Wingspan and the Castles of Burgundy. My friend had never played Wingspan before, so it was prett easy to lure him in. 😉 I really like Wingspan, but I don’t think I’d like it more with moreContinue reading “Wingspan and Castles of Burgundy.”
The concept of “Dead games”
This is a thing that bothers me to some extent. Recently Fantasy Flight Games came out and said that after the next round of booster sets they won’t be making more for Star Wars Destiny. This means that the game will not evolve anymore by getting new cards. But does this really mean that theContinue reading “The concept of “Dead games””
What to play when on your way?
As this year started I got a new job (new year new me?). I am very grateful, but the job is not very close to my home. I don’t want to play a mobile game (wait 10 minutes or pay $30), I want something more like a complete boardgame or such that I can playContinue reading “What to play when on your way?”
I wrote about this game in a previous post about introductory games. So lets talk a little more about why I think that. In Luxor you essentially play as grave robbers. You are delving deeper and deeper into the grave of a Pharao. The game ends when the two sarcophogi in the middle has beenContinue reading “Luxor”
I have been thinking a lot about this. Many (well most…) games have player interaction in some way. Some more than others. A lot of games get the complaint that there is not enough player interaction. For me that is a weird complaint with some games. If the game is not made to have playerContinue reading “Player interaction”
A game that we play pretty often at home is Star Realms. We have brought it along on vacation and all that. I’ve written about it before. I know that Whitewizard games know card games. I have played a couple of them. But what if they made more than “just” a card game? This isContinue reading “Sorcerer”
A weekend of boardgaming
This weekend has been a bit massive with boardgaming. A friend of mine who has a podcast in swedish about board- and roleplaying, came over with a couple of more friends and even more friends came over and we played a whoöe bunch of games! We played Underwater cities (we only had time for oneContinue reading “A weekend of boardgaming”
This year we celebrated christmas at my fiancés parents groups. That is why I playtested a couple of games before hand and took Second Chance, Welcome to… with me. My fiancé also brought along Skip-Bo, a game where she wins atleast 90% of the time. First we got to my fiancés mother and her husband.Continue reading “Christmas gaming”
