Scroll to see multiple games of Flink! Hipster Breakfast Joint in Highland Park and another Nestor Game: Flink with @teoismatt ! I LOVE this Nestor game! Cannot wait to play it again with Matt! It’s a race to the other side; each player is one color. You need to make a 3d path. Block your opponents. This is a top 3 Nestor Game for me! This was from his last trip visiting LA. What’s better than a Nestor game, brunch, and great company? I absolutely love Nestor Games and recommend everyone try them! (you must buy in his site; small independent designer and publisher). Also, this is Kitchen Mouse, a local fav in Highland Park. #boardgames #juegosdemesa #j2s #brettspiel @nestorgames #flink #abstractgames #tabletopgames #portablegames #abstractstrategy #nela #nestorgamez #lunchgames #portablegames #abstract #abstractstrategy

Majolica. Have you heard of this one yet? Thoughts? I’ve heard a lot of great buzz for this game! Many people I follow really enjoy this abstract puzzle, and I even heard a couple people say it was a top game of 2018 for them! Do you want to try it?? What I really liked about the production was the tiles have a nice finish that gives the illusion they are tiles, not cardboard. Beautiful game. Unfortunately the gameplay fell flat for me; however, I’d gladly play again one more time to make sure. There is a little too much upkeep for resetting the tiles for me. What’s your thoughts? Played this with Jackie and Allison. Thanks so much for the teach Jackie and Hope to game with both of you again! @gaminggambits @showmehow2win @boardgamesetc #bluemagpiegames #abstractgames #yuwang #boardgames #j2s #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #tilelayinggames #majolica

Have you ever taught a game and it wasn’t the right game for the crowd? What game? Age of Steam can be dry and unforgiving, but it’s my absolute favorite game! I want to play this game everyday!!! Thanks so much Allison and Jackie playing this with me. Hope to game again soon! Matt won!

Do you like war games?! What are your favorites?! Here are some card driven war games I have played lately. I really like these war games! What other games do you suggest I play? Have you tried these games? If you like two player games and a little historical tension, I recommend all three of these! I wanted to try war games for a long time, but didn’t have the opportunity. I wanted to try Twilight Struggle before @katiesgamecorner but their promotion of this game only made me want to play it more! My goal is to be an omnigamer. Lately, I’ve been exploring train games and war games a lot. #boardgames #wargames #cardgames #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #j2s #13days #fortsumter #twilightstruggle #gmtgames #boardgamegeek #boardgamegirl #boardgamesofinstagram #tabletopgames #geekgirl #13daysgame

Do you want to play Finca with me? Online? I’m serious. Yucata.de has it for free, and I LOVE it!!!! (my name is Jaclyn on yucata.de Invite me if you want to play!) Finca! FUN FACT: I’m kinda obsessed with Finca at the moment. Played this play Saturday with Allison, Jackie, Matt and me. Do you know Jackie and Allison? Check them out if not. They make videos for Show Me How to Win. @gaminggambits @boardgamesetc @showmehow2win @teoismatt I prefer the game without the expansion, but we tried it here. I may prefer the simplicity in the base game. Thanks for the invite Allison and Jackie, your hospitality Jackie, and it was great to see you both again!

What portable games do you like to play when you go out to eat? My answer: Nestor games!!! Naja: another Nestor game! It was Sunday, and Matt and I were headed to play games. We stopped at this coffee shop in Highland Park named A Bloc @abloc.la with the BEST vegan breakfast sandwiches. (Highland recommend their vegan breakfast sandwiches if you’re local! Also, great coffee and the best service!) We played a quick Nestor game while eating. I LOVE this Nestor game: Naja. Probably my third favorite so far. (Ni-ju and Flink might be my two favorites right now). Oh I LOVE how easy Nestor games are to play when you are going out to eat! They are portable, quick, have deep decisions and fun! @teoismatt Thanks again Matt for teaching me this Nestor game and this perfect Sunday brunch! I cannot wait to play again with you. Scroll to the last picture to see how gaming with you makes me smile. [SCORES: jac 30; matt 9]. #naja #nestorgames

Do you ever get family to play with you who are not into board games? My bestie, S, played several games, and he is so not a board gamer. Thanks for playing S! @sylissimo This was son, Noah’s, second game of AOS! It’s no secret Age of Steam is my favorite game! I could play this over and over! Another Portugal play from last week; this time 4 players! Matt and I ended on the same spot, but I won after counting track. Close game! Thanks for teaching this to my family @teoismatt Thanks everyone for playing my favorite game.

Do you know that feeling when you play a game and you obsess over it after? Thinking of what you did wrong and how to strategize? Okay maybe I feel that way often, but I’ve definitely been thinking of how I want to play this one next time! The Soo Line. This is a train game with only 3 railroads to invest in. The game plays 2-5 players in under an hour. I want to explore this one more! I’m slowly becoming obsessed with train games! Thanks Matt for the teach! Thanks S for playing another game for the holidays! It was great to play board games with you even though I know you’d prefer video games.

Do you want to race Kangaroos? 🦘 Played Billabong last week. Best racing game of 1994. It’s an abstract racing game, that recently had a reprint. This is the OG version. In the first video, S goes all the way around and jumps over the black piece to get out. In the last video, he wins! Way to go S. 🙌💕Thanks for playing Noah, Matt and S! It means so much when you join in to games, S. Thanks again. #billabong #boardgames #ericsolomon #j2s #brettspiel #racinggames #familygames #playallthegames #boardgamegeek #tabletopgames #classicgames @teoismatt @sylissimo

What’s your favorite Trick taking game? Do you like Trick taking games? My first play of Yokai Septet! It is a trick taking game for two teams of 2 players each. (There are variants for other player counts). There are seven suits, with 7 cards each, and the goal is to capture the 7’s for points. One suit is A-7; 2-8; 3-9 and so on to 7-13, so the 7 may be the high card or the low card. Each player plays tricks with the goal of capturing the 7s. In order to win the round and collect points, the team must collect four or more 7’s. The team to score a certain number of points wins. It’s a fun game! Matt brought it over and he was on the team with Noah, I was on the team with my bestie S. We had fun. It wasn’t easy to read what our partners had the first game. I would definitely try this game again; it was a lot of fun! What other trick taking card games do you recommend? #yokaiseptet #tricktaking #cardgame #boardgames #kickstartergames #muneyukiyokouchi #ninjastargames @ninjastargames #tricktakinggame #boardgameart #boardgamegeek #playallthegames

Are you looking for quick games that travel easily, with meaningful choices? That’s what @nestorgames are all about! I have enjoyed every Nestor game that I played so far! Matt @teoismatt brought 4 of them over last week, and this one is Four. How to play? Each player begins with identical shapes/colors. On a 9x9 grid, players place a shape orthogonally, but it cannot be the same shape or color your opponent just played. It cannot orthogonally touch a piece of the same color or shape. The winner is the last who can place a shape. It’s fun, quick, simple, but there are definitely some interesting strategies to explore for blocking the opponent. Nestor games come in a canvas bag, but you can only buy them from his website directly. I am a huge fan. #abstractgames #boardgames #nestorgames #j2s #brettspiel #tabletopgames #portablegames #hipstergames #boardgamegeek #boardgamegirl #abstract

What Age of Steam map do you recommend? I recommend trying this one: Portugal! My favorite is St. Lucia (no competition) and Sweden Recycling. Both Maps I want to play more! This was a week ago and my first time I played Age of Steam: Portugal by Vital Lacerda. It was a special play in particular because my teenage son tried AOS for the first time! It’s so special to share my FAVORITE game with him! Thanks Matt for teaching! Also, thanks for playing Noah! Also, guess who came in last?!? I did not go easy. Noah blocked me early from Lisboa, and I just couldn’t make things happen. What Maps do you like?
