Saturday night, 5 players.

Neat deduction game, but some of the mechanics are a little wonky. Was learning game for 4 of us and only 2nd play for the 5th, and we definitely got some rules wrong. But it had some neat mechanics, I'd try it again. Now to get my copy from the KS campaign out of shrink...

Saturday afternoon, 4 players.

First play for 3 of the 4, but they seemed to do very well. Really enjoy this game. It takes a while (especially with new players), but this is rapidly becoming one of my favorite games.

Saturday night, just played around, not a full game.

A neat little concept, using children's building blocks to setup courses you have to drag pieces through following various restrictions. Start out very easy, but some of them get pretty tricky

Finally got my copy in from kickstarting it over a year ago. I really liked it, although we only played with 3, and I suspect it will be better with 4 or 5.

We played this one four player and it was a first multi-player play for all of us (one player had tried it solo previously). In my opinion, it was great and all the players seemed to like it. I had plenty to think about the entire game and it was a constant juggling act to figure out how to get what I wanted with the pieces I had.

Owned this game for almost a year and this was my first chance to play it (used DGM copy).

Played 3 player - It was as fun as I imagined it would be and would love the hilarity a full player game would provide.

Saturday Night, 5-10 players. Played 5 or 6 games total. Also included characters from One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak in some games.

I backed this on KS and picked it up last year at BGG.Con, but had never tried it. The app is hard to hear in a noisy room full of board gaming, but we moved the kitchen and had better luck. Fun deduction filler with a much quicker payoff than longer games like Ultimate Werewolf, Avalon, Resistance, etc. But if I have the time, I'd still rather play Avalon.

Had played my copy with 4 players twice at BGG.con, but this was our first 3 player. Score was tight:

Adam - 99
Me - 100
Josh - 107 if I remember correctly

Love this game, as there are so many strategies to explore. Now if only Josh will paint my damn meeples so I have the ultimate Deluxe edition!!! devil (yeah, I called you out whistle )

I got this used a couple of months back and I've been wanting to try the game one way or another for a long time now. It was pretty fun. A little mathy but didn't feel like I was just playing a spreadsheet the whole time. I don't know how often I'll get this to the table, but I think I'll be hanging onto it for the occasional play.

Definitely a smaller learning curve than Race, but still a lot to grok at first. Dice can be very unkind.

I finally got to try out this game. I didn't win, but I was better at bluffing than I thought I would be. I always look guilty. So I am best at looking guilty when I am not bluffing.

Saturday afternoon, 4 players.

I had seen this at BGG.Con this year and really wanted to try it. But the two rulebooks were a bit thick, so I didn't get a chance. Thankfully Aldie had played it before and taught us while playing the part of the Mastermind. (Thanks again Aldie!)

Very much enjoyed mystery-solving aspect of this. Likely to try to pick up a copy soon.

Saturday night, 4 players. We played 2 or 3 hands/games.

A quick little micro-game with scoring for everyone based on the rules on the cards each player selects from their hand. Each round takes under 5 minutes, and has some fun twists and turns.
