Christmas is here!
And I finally opened the packages, finding the new game and two expansions to others! I immediately added Cosmic Incursion to my Cosmic Encounter box, sorting out the pieces and putting all the alien cards in the expansion box - it's perfect for storing them - which I then put in the base game box. I'm now looking forward to the chance to play it with a group.
I'm going away for new years, but I'll take Alien Artifacts with me and hopefully get in a game or many.
And the revised Game of Thrones card game is going to get a good going over after the holidays!
It's great to receive a few items, because then you have a choice of what to play. Thank you very much for your gifts and Christmas spirit! It has been a great Secret Santa this year!About me:
I got into board gaming in 2008. I quickly found that my favourite games are wargames, conflict games and heavier euro strategy games. Not hex and counter wargames (except Space Empires 4X which is probably my favourite game), but less mathy, more bluffy, hidden info, fog of war, diplomatic type games, like Twilight Struggle, Game of Thrones, Napoleon's Triumph and Maria.
I like a game that inspires thought, strategy and tough decision making. A bit of theme, a bluffing element and a lot of variety in options and replayability help too, so I've found the heavier Fantasy Flight games and GMT games to be my favourites, but there are a lot if great wargames out there.
