It wasn't on my Challenge A list, but knocked out one of our unplayed games today anyway!

Got to try this out with my wife today. It wasn't really as co-operative as I thought it would be, and the setup for the first game was pretty basic to let you learn the ropes, but I think it'll be fun when we have more players and more varied heroes/powers.

Got to give this a play yesterday, and it's a pretty solid worker placement game. It seems like points have a snowball effect, starting slowly but then coming all at once near the end. We ended up with really close scores (10, 9, 9, 8), so I'll be interested to see if that was a one-time thing or if it's common.

So technically I've played this on BGA before, so I knew the rules and how it works, but this is the first time I've gotten our physical copy to the table (or played a physical copy at all). Definitely a fun brain-burner game where you want to try to plan several turns in advance. I didn't do that as well as I probably could've, but still had a ton of fun!

This was a great social deduction/co-op game! I can definitely see this hitting the table a bunch this year.

Played a solo game to try it out. I ended up playing too conservatively and ran out of time before reaching the goal. It's a fun game; will definitely play well with multiple players.

Got one of our newly obtained games played today. I really like the pepper crossbreeding mechanic of this game and can't wait to play it some more!

The other game from our recent order also hit the table today. An unusually thematic worker placement with some fun balance. The paying your workers at the end mechanic is interesting and tough.

Another game I've played on BGA, but haven't played the physical version until today. We played the 2p variant where each person get 2 characters and it worked out pretty well, though we did more punching and shooting each other than actual stealing.

This was a little Kickstarter I got a while back and never brought it out until now. It was surprisingly fun for a silly little game involving throwing cards back and forth.

Challenge B

We just got this game and had an opportunity to try it out yesterday. The mechanic where all but one player will win is an interesting one. We started off fairly cooperative, but once we got closer to completing all the objectives, the game got more cutthroat. It's definitely a game you need the right group for, but is really fun.

Received this game from Kickstarter in January and got the first play of it in on 2/1. It's a nice light drafting game, about the same weight as Sushi Go. I like it.

Challenge A qualifier - 2/2

Continuing with our trend of getting unplayed Kickstarter games to the table, we tried this one out today. It was alright; it seemed like sometimes we were just trying to get turns to end because there wasn't anything we could do. I wonder if it would be different with more than 2, but it wasn't too bad. I'm sure we'll play again later.

Tried out the solo version of this today (the Asteroids challenge). It was fun, but very tough. I got smashed by asteroids 3 times, but at least it was quick and merciful.

Another game I've played on BGA, which helped in teaching it. It was more cutthroat in person than online, but being a quick, small game it didn't get too crazy. I'm not a fan of the board which doesn't lay flat easily, but that was the only issue with the game.

One of our Gen Con purchases that hadn't made it to the table yet. It was a decent little filler. Scoring rounds seemed to come really quickly so there wasn't much time for strategizing.

This has probably been on our unplayed list the longest -- we got it last summer but have never found the opportunity to play it until now. It was really fun and pretty easy to play. It plays well with two and seems like it will scale well, plus there are tons of expansions available to keep things fresh.

Finally was able to play this one after receiving it from Kickstarter last fall. I have been in the vicinity of this game being played on at least two separate occasions, but was always playing a different game or unable to try it out.

It's alright; I don't like it better than Werewolf though. We only played with 5 though, and it seems with the marks it would be better to have more people. It'll be interesting to try the Epic Battles with vampires, werewolves, and villagers.

Got to play this one yesterday for Valentine'sheart. This was a fun little game with really great artwork (by Marie Cardouat). At first I thought the building restrictions that different types of rides or stands couldn't touch (even at corners), but in the end it wasn't too bad. It seems like smart use of the bonus cards and keeping up with dirt generation are the keys to victory here.

One of the shortest stretched between obtaining a new game and playing it -- this came with our big post-tax refund Coolstuff order on Friday and we played it the very next day! This is a nice light game, and would be a great alternative to something like Love Letter.

Another purchase from our recent Coolstuff order, a new 2-player only game for our collection! I really like the Tetris-like tile placement aspect, and managed to almost complete my quilt (only 6 empty spaces at the end). I'm looking forward to playing a lot more of this.
