What’s your favorite co op game? I tried Forbidden Sky! First Game of BGG Con! I was a little more sleep deprived than anticipating, but I finally got to try a game in the Forbidden series. This was my first try! I don’t play a lot of co op games; this was a challenge for me! Although it isn’t the normal genre I play, I would gladly try it again! I got to meet Spencer, Lara, and their adorable daughter! Spencer and Lara of @marriedwithbg : one of the first instagram accounts I followed, so it was so special to meet them! If you are not familiar, I HIGHLY recommend checking out their instagram and youtube channel. They will both be at BGG con. Thank you both so much for inviting me to your home, picking me up from the airport, and making lunch! Sorry I was so sleep deprived, I didn’t plan on it. #forbiddensky #cooperativegames #coop #gamewright @gamewright #mattleacock #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamenight #boardgamegeek #boardgameaddict #boardgamesofinstagram #bgg #j2s #bggcon #bggcon2018

Parents, what’s your favorite game to play with your kids? If you don’t have kids, do you ever game with kids? What do you play? As a parent, it warms my heart when my son wants to play game with me! My teenage son LOVES this game! It’s a tactical card combat game! he won by so much, it was embarrassing! I am getting ready to go to BGG Con, but when I return, we will have a rematch!!! If you want to know more about this game, I plan on writing a proper review after more plays. I’m going to finally launch my blog soon! #boardgames #j2s #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #cardgames #wizkids @wizkidsgames #boardgamegeek #timebarrons #jonperry #quibblegames #familygamenight #boardgamenight #bgg #familygames

How do you pack games to go? Do you use a quiver? It’s a case to carry card games or portable games when traveling! It saves space and you can leave the boxes at him. I’m getting ready for BGG con and trying to decide what to bring! I really want to share Pasaraya, and I know it’s not readily available, so I’m (probably) bringing it. I have not been able to play it as much as I would like. Can’t go wrong having Welcome To and a packed quiver! What would you want to play with me here? Anything I shouldn’t bring? I may remove Railroad Ink if I decide this is too many games. I’m just really excited to attend BGG Con for the first time! Dallas I’ll be in you in less than 48 hours!!!!!!!! I still have to work tomorrow, do laundry, and my suitcases are empty. I’m SO EXCITED!!!!! #boardgames #j2s #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #tabletopgames #welcometo #pasaraya #railroadink #oinkgames #fakeartistgoestonewyork #insider #arboretum #raceforthegalaxy #dude #targi #illusion #circleofwagons #quivertime @quivertime #bggcon #bggcon2018 #playallthegames

Do you like replaying games, the same game over and over? How many times in a week/month is too many? It’s no secret I’m in love with Macao. I always get on an obsession where I play a game over and over, and this is my current obsession. Usually it’s a solo game, like Lisboa, or a medium weight Euro. I have not tried to play a single game 365 times in a year like Toby @tobyvsmeeple but I do enjoy exploring different strategies for the same game. How many plays of the same game is too much? Do you prefer variability? When you get a new game, do you like it play it repeatedly? I am the same way with eating habits, so it’s probably just my personality. 😂 This game was from last week with F.

What’s your FAVORITE Deck Builder? Do you like Deck Builders? If the answer is yes, I HIGHLY recommend trying Pasaraya! This is a game from Malaysia. It’s not retail, but self published by the designer. It has an interesting mechanism where the money you spend, goes back to the supply (not your discard deck), and another mechanism to feed more cards into your deck (withdrawing from the bank). It has a unique theme and the actions are thematic. I tried this game at Gen Con and had to own it, so I bought it directly from the designer. If you want to know more about it, I recommend reading the review by Eric on his blog. Link to blog at @whatsericplaying and it is review number 249. I think Eric has the best reviews for light-medium games. 💗 I played Pasaraya with my son! He loved it. He also won by a huge margin! I want a rematch! SCROLL to see more photos!

Have you tried the GIPF project?! I highly recommend if you like abstract games! The versions put out by Huch! are GORGEOUS and high quality; I want these!!! This was my first time playing these games, and I LOVE it! I cannot wait to play again! My favorites so far are Tzaar and Zertz! Scroll to see us playing!

Have you played? Thoughts?Do you want to play? Brass!!! I finally got to try it! 💗 Played half a game because the meetup was almost over, and the venue closed. We played Age 1. After half of one play of Brass Lancashire, my first impressions are that I absolutely LOVE this game!!! I cannot wait to play it again and then try Brass Birmingham. I noticed some similarities to Age of Steam, which I also felt love after first play. I want to play again- now! Which do you prefer: Lancashire or Birmingham? What are your thoughts on this game? #brass #brasslancashire #brassbirmingham #martinwallace #boardgames #j2s #juegosdemesa #brettspiel #tabletopgaming #boardgamegeek #eurogames #strategygames #economicgames #bgg #boardgamemeetup #tabletopgames

What’s a great game to play at 5 player count?! Have you played this one?! Tell me what you think! Hansa Teutonica! I cannot wait to play this again!!! I love the tempo and pace to this game. Even in a 5p game, I feel engaged on the board and cannot look away. Turns are generally quick and involved kicking other players out, so regardless of turn order, it could mean you need to place at any time (if another player kicks you out). There are multiple ways to score. Playing this game, Joe said my favorite quote of his regarding strategy: “this is how culture want invented ... people doing different things”-Joe. If you get the opportunity to play this game, do not hesitate! I highly recommend!!! I played last Saturday 5p with Russell, Joe, Daniel, and Yvonne. 🎁🦃 someone send it to me for my birthday, which is 2 days before Thanksgiving this year. I joke I joke.

What’s your favorite bidding game? Here is the new Modern Art by by Dice Tree Games, which is the Korean Version that was recently released. My picture and video both don’t do it justice! This edition has 94 metal coins, a thick and heavy wooden gavel, an easel larger than the Gallerist, and a double sided board with both Korean and famous artists. So exciting and beautiful! Yes, I loved hitting the gavel!!! 🙌💕 Thanks @boardgamingblues for bringing and sharing your beautiful new game.

Have you played this classic from 2007? Thoughts?! Notre Dame by Stefan Feld. With all the hotness of new releases and new games, I enjoy the classics just as much, if not more. I’m here to hype the classics. If you have not tried this game, I recommend you looking into it! You can’t go wrong for $20 US dollars for the 10 year anniversary edition. This was my first play! I really enjoyed this game and cannot wait to play it again. I played it at 4p count, but I hear it scales well. Can’t wait to try it at other player counts. I know I say this often, but I fall more in love with Feld every new game of his I play. Played on Saturday with Russell, Ben and Jeff. Thanks for the teach Russell. #boardgames #j2s #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #stefanfeld #alea #notredame #notredamegame #ravensburger #stefanfeldfanboy @ravensburgerglobal #tabletopgames #eurogames @jaybee63 @boardgamingblues

GENTES 💗 Did you back this Kickstarter? Are you excited to play it? THOUGHTS? I really enjoyed playing this one! I cannot wait to play again! This edition is the first printing from Spielworxx, but the Kickstarter is supposed to be fulfilled in Early January! I wish I backed it! Cannot wait to play again! It’s a great game!!! Thanks Ben aka @boardgamingblues for the teach! Played with Ben and Jeff @jaybee63 my first play.

Have you played any games by Grandpa Beck’s Games? Look at these! Have you heard of them? Played? Interested or have any opinions? The packaging was so adorable with a hand written card and matching themed bags! I can’t wait to play and share!

Are you excited for this new Essen release from Feld?! Do you want to play? I got to play Carpe Diem! After one play of a 2p game, my first impression is that I LOVE THIS GAME!!! It’s the lightest Feld I’ve played. Instant buy after one play. It’s a tile laying point salad. It’s an easy teach, quick game, and has really meaningful decisions. The box time is 60 minutes. It would be significantly shorter at 2p. There are 4 rounds and you draft about 7 tiles each round. As you place them, they may/may not score or provide a benefit, and there is a quick scoring round at the end of each 4 rounds. At the end of the game, there is end game scoring. The player aid is great. Good iconography; very intuitive and clear. Appears to have HIGH replayability with variable set up in several different ways. I cannot wait to own this one and play it again! It’s much lighter than any other Feld I’ve played, but I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this one! #boardgames #stefanfeld #carpediem #j2s #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #eurogames #tabletopgames #boardgamegeek #alea #ravensburger @ravensburgerglobal #bgg #spiel18 #feld

What’s your favorite dice game? Do you like dice towers? 🎲 The more I play Stefan Feld’s games, the more I love him as a designer! It’s no secret that I’m addicted to Macao right now! It’s just a great classic Euro. There’s 12 quick rounds with a phase you draft a card, a phase you select dice for action cubes equal to the pips, and then the action phase, where you perform all your actions. Each choice seems meaningful, and there’s multiple paths to victory. The key is being efficient. I’m hoping for the 10th anniversary reprint because everyone needs an opportunity to play this great out of print game! if you happen to know anyone who has a copy at a reasonable price, let me know. Macao with F last week; his first game.

Have you played Lisboa (my favorite game)?! Do you WANT to play Lisboa? I’m always up for this masterpiece! When you set it up on the table, it’s epic with the high quality chunky components and gorgeous artwork. Created by the dream team of big gorgeous crunchy high quality games: Vital Lacerda + Ian O’Toole + Eagle Griffin. Played last week a couple times! Left it set up for a week on my second table. This game was a 2p game with F. At the end, he sold goods and ended up getting so much money, I thought he had the win! (see second pic for his money stack.). However, the wigs from the decrees saved me, and I pulled out ahead by 10. Strategy tip: don’t underestimate those decrees! (and yes my tablecloth matches perfectly on purpose😂).
