Yeahhhh, Claustrophobia is coming soon.
With all the Essen craze I wondered if it was forgotten (would be understandable)

I don't see Cornish Smuggler on this list, and I also don't see it under requests. It is entered in your collection, but has no notation as to it's status, so do you actually own this one yet? AND if so where in does it stand? I know there was some discussion about it and folks wanting it and you weren't so keen. Not sure how all that came out in the end. But I would definitely like to know more.

It's in my collection? That's weird. Nope, don't have it. Realized it's not Jen's and my cup of tea (pick up & deliver + really aggressive take-that play = not for us), so I've not pursued trying to do a runthrough of it...

If it helps, Tox at Crits Happen has done some really nice Mage Wars videos.

Hope Richard doesn't mind me pointing people in the direction of other videos, but if it frees him up to work on games he wants to play....

If an item has been added to your wishlist, and then is subsequently removed, it will still appear in the "collection" view, until you manually remove it by hitting the red "X" from within the same view.

Based on the voting results [HERE], I reckon the next few games up will be Nations, Keyflower Farmers, Glass Road, and Claustrophobia (not necessarily in that order)

The key ingredient to that is to get Jen to stop doing other things so she'll sit down and play with me

There's a saying here in Portugal:
"There are two kinds of men. The ones that THINK they're in charge and the ones that KNOW they're not."

If you know that already, that's an advantage.

do my eyes deceive me. i would think that claustrophobia is as un-euro as games get. using the expansion or base game only?

I'll go with expansion. I think the unique usage of the dice makes this game much more euro than the average dungeon crawl, definitely

I sold mine.

Interesting idea, but lack of different heroes and monsters made it 'meh'

Claustrophobia was in 2 of the top 10 Richard did (and he did only 2 or 3) so I thought it ought to be Run Through.

And it will be a good change from all the heavy Euros from Essen.

Interesting as Richard has stated a few times that he & Jen don't like games where you are mean to each other.

I guess killing each other with extreme prejudice doesn't count as mean? cool

Seriously I'd be interested in hearing his final thoughts. It didn't click with me. I guess the 'meaness' is ok if that is the whole point of the game

Exactly. What we really hate is games where you spend a lot of time building or creating something, and then the other person destroys that. Most civilization games, for instance, we hate for that reason, because there's so much focus on warfare.

In a game where, from the beginning, it's about "you have these characters, I have these characters, let's dance!", we don't mind that. Still, it's not something that we seek out either, so the game has to be something really special to get our attention.

We think Claustrophobia is something special

Makes sense.

Have you tried Dungeon Twister just out of interest?

Yeah, like DT quite a bit. Really looking forward to the card game version actually

I think I should do a video of my top 10 conflict-heavy games!

Edit: nevermind, I don't have 10. So my top 8 are

8) Jab
7) Middle Earth Quest
6) Fury of Dracula
5) Confusion
4) Dungeon Twister
3) Battlelore
2) Drako
1) Claustrophobia

We need more top 8's in the world. Or 7 or 6. It is nice to see you not stretch your choices just to make it 10.

Note that for Glass Road, there is now official Errata on the game page...

"Errata
The building "Roofing Company" (Dachdeckerei) should be taken from the game.
Together with other buildings it can lead to an unwanted loop."

The "loop" is presented in this game review... http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1066806/glass-road-revie...
