I got Gauntlet of Fools yesterday, I hope it's good...

Narrowly missed out on that one, let us know what you think of it.


I also have this one in my Essen goodies...arrrh


I'm curious to know how the price compared to kickstarter (if you don't mind). I split a 3-pack and paid NZD 37.35 per copy and also got the (non-exclusive) Gauntlet of Fools Promo Cards mini-expansion. I consider it one of my better kickstarter purchases in terms of actually liking and playing the game (Escape: The Curse of the Temple is easily the best).


I got it on KS too, with Essen pickup. Then I went for the 'everything' option with indie boards and cards which cost 85 Euro, minus the 3 bucks I had already pledged. So that makes it about 130nz for flash point plus two expansions, gauntlet and two resistance.
So I have no idea how much gauntlet cost!

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

That wouldn't be all that hard to have happen surely.

Aediles put the tax rate up two to the fourth position so there are six Traditor cards.
Praetors put three Loyal cards in the Praetor position (as they're trying to protect themselves). The other Loyal card goes in the Censor position.
That leaves three Traditor in the Consul, one in the Censor, and three in the Aedile (with the automatic one).
Even if the Consul chickens pay off one of the Traditors two of those chickens still die, niether the Censor nor any of the Praetors die, and all three of the Aediles die.
That means five chickens are dead, which means Ceasar dies as well. If the Consuls don't buy off a Traditor that means seven chickens can die in the first round.
Of course that would require the Censor to exile either itself or one of the Praetor chickens to keep the death count as high. (But I'd kind of expect a Censor to exile itself with that many Traditor cards that early.)

We might have killed 6 including Caesar in the last turn of that last game.

Corker of a game.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

My Kickstarter copies of Modern Hanafuda arrived last week and very happy with the quality of the cards and artwork!

Monolith: The Strategy Game is the first board game I've backed. I've still got loads of games to play so I'm waiting patiently for it.

Just got in in time for Nothing Personal - a game resembling Junta, Chicken Caesar and Kremlin, co-invented by Tom Vasel.

This is my preference for a family of gaming themes to own.

I'm currently ogling the Kickstarter for 1969. Saw the Essen feed live about this one and have been interested since then. It's the USD 70 price tag and also the unplayed pile at home that's making me hesitate.

My Secret Santa has said I'm safe to order too. Oh the pain of decision making!
