Hobby Update 15/07/18: Zug Um Zug Um Zug Um Zug

I'm visiting family this week and have been out and about a fair bit.  That said, I've had the chance for a bit of hobby time! First up was a lovely, 4-player game of Ticket to Ride.  Specifically, we played the German edition of Ticket to Ride: Germany, Zug Um Zug: Deutschland.  As with all… Continue reading Hobby Update 15/07/18: Zug Um Zug Um Zug Um Zug

Nostalgia Games: Considering Fantasy Flight’s Re-Release of the Original Star Wars RPG

We all have one, I'm sure.  One of those old games that we played as a kid.  We might know it's not as good as more modern offerings, but the game still holds a special place in our hearts. Perhaps you grew up playing your family's battered, old copy of Monopoly or Cluedo.  Oh sure, they're not… Continue reading Nostalgia Games: Considering Fantasy Flight’s Re-Release of the Original Star Wars RPG

14 Hour Time-lapsed Twilight Imperium 3

This is excellent.  Reddit user Plolock has shared a fantastic time-lapse of one his recent games of Twlight Imperium 3.  TI3 is a fantastic game, but it is also long and cumbersome.  This video boils down a marathon 14 hour session into fewer than 4 minutes.  It makes for interesting watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbnkALBxWA0 Great video!  I really… Continue reading 14 Hour Time-lapsed Twilight Imperium 3

Asymmetry and the Modern, 2 Player Board Game

A lot of the board games that are considered mainstream family games (Monopoly, Cluedo, Uno et al) are what we might call symmetrical games.  By this I mean that in these games all players begin on a level footing.
