It's been two weeks since my last Recent Gaming geeklist, and now I'm back with a bunch of titles. Those were all played in the last few days, though! The preparations I'm making for my move to France are squashing most of my boardgaming opportunities. That will hopefully change later, or else perhaps it will be an entire year of squeezing in gaming when I can. Regardless, I managed a great batch of games recently.
Why? Two reasons. My daughter returned home from her college study abroad quarter, and her game-playing boyfriend was over. Also, I made it back to our new, public game group hosted at Barnes & Noble, the Tabletop Gamers of SCV (Santa Clarita Valley).
Another oddity of the last couple weeks is that I had THREE packages from Kickstarter arrive, almost at once. I know other gamers have that experience from time to time, but it was new to me. I continue to be very cautious and skeptical about most products on Kickstarter. As you'll read below, this week's experience substantiates my caution...but also showed how it can be a good thing, too. I guess. I'm still iffy on it, even when I enjoy a game that was financed via Kickstarter!
