    I just picked up Fallout Monopoly and Zelda Clue which are both decent.

    So glad you created an account to share that with us.

    (I'll be keeping an eye on you)

    I enjoy Scythe, but I don't love it.

    I think it's just that I don't find it very exciting.

    I can appreciate the work that's gone in to balance and love the design, but I feel the actual game is just a race down the same checklist of objectives. None of which really have that many different avenues with which to complete them. It all just feels a bit samey after a couple of games. For me at least.
    I totally get that and I think it feels more like that at the start. Once you play more and counter other players and go for really high scores it becomes more interesting IMO.

    I think Fenris will take huge steps in changing up how it plays as well, but I'll have to get back to you on that one.

    I'll be playing Lisboa tomorrow at a friends place and had a look at a Gaming Rules! video last night. Oh.. my... gods.

    I think Mr Lacerda over reached a little tbh. I'm really looking forward to it but I'd lie if I said I wasn't a bit scared.

    I was interested in Lisboa but was ultimately put off by user comments. It seems a bit too much with too many things going on, possibly a little fussy and dry, with a long play time and the box is quite big as far as I recall. Good on paper but less so in real life is my impression. But I'm interested to hear other points of view about it.

    Azul must have had a reprint as it's in stock again.
    Worth 35?

    I just bought the Fallout Wasteland Warfare starter set. I'm such a sucker.

    I love Fallout though and the campaign mode actually sounds quite cool. It'll probably be toss.

    So how was Lisboa?
    Got a cheap copy os Seasons today, seems decent but probably won't play it for a week, been playing too much Legendary Marvel.
    Also found a new BG group and friend, makes such a difference playing more than 2 players!

    It was glorious. 4.5 hrs of brainmelting over the top mechanics in layer upon layer.

    Pure indulgence by Mr Lacerda.

    MAGISTERIAL!

    I won by the way. Hugely.

    You could probably shave a fiver off that if you look about; MM are 32 at the mo, so do look around.

    ....and yes.

    I'm starting to enjoy Terraforming mars more now. Feels like its a bit unbalanced and very swingy but still thematically excellent and 'fun' more than clever game design.

    Was tempted to sell on but now might buy that colony expansion when it comes out.

    Kids love it too and feels good when they play as they're learning some cool science and practicing some maths.
