J'avais un a priori très positif sur ce jeu et je n'ai pas été déçu. Un excellent moment passé cet après-midi en famille autour de #raidontaihoku #boardgames #essen17

Depuis le temps (#Essen17) j’ai enfin ingurgité les règles de ce bel objet ludique qu’est #Agra. A voir maintenant ce que cela vaut mais c’est tentant ! #j2s #bgg #boardgames

It is time for another My Most Played Games for the Month post!

January as always is a holiday month full of time off and some gaming. In January I revisited classics like Fresco, Abyss and Power Grid but also played some very cool new games like Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire and the very innovative Vast: The Crystal Caverns. I really need to play more of the game but the first play was full with the sense of awe and excitement as we all played the game in the most different ways!

My most played game this month was the very easy to teach and play Dice Stars. Dice Stars is a roll-and-write by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc. I am a huge fan of roll-and-writes but Bruno created a masterpiece. It is very gamey but you can also play it in a chill are. Highly recommended!

My Most Played Games for January are (ordered by number of plays): .

#1 Dice Stars
#2 Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire 
#3 Abyss 
#4 Fresco 
#5 Gold West 
#6 Harvest Dice 
#7 Power Grid: The Card Game 
#8 Vast: The Crystal Caverns

I think I've fallen in #love... ... well several times this week actually! 😂

Here's a view of the gameboard from the brilliant '#FogOfLove' #game by @JacobJaskov at #HushHushProjects.

I first saw this game on @kickstarter in 2016, then witnessed the impressive #Essen17 stall complete with loveheart balloons (as seen on an earlier October post), and then heard such fantastic things from bloggers and reviewers from across the board at some of the year's biggest cons- it's become quite a late year sensation!

So so so happy to have secured a copy of this! And has quickly become a firm favourite of my 2017 crop of games! 😁 💕

Nouvelle partie de #Keyper pour boucler cette année ludique. Excellent jeu, avec beaucoup d’optimisation et d’opportunisme. Je ne peux que le conseiller. #j2s #bgg #boardgames #Essen17

Last Thursday at @mortyklein we played Azul from #planbgames (published by #pegasusspiele in Germany). Azul is an abstract game, where players try to complete their azulejo (glazed ceramic tiles) by selecting tiles from the different suppliers. While completing specific patterns gives you extra points, wasting azulejos harms your score.

I instantly felt in love with this game. A perfectly developed mechanism combined with stunning components make this game a #musthave. The #1 game on my list of 2018 purchases. 👥 2-4 players
⏰ 30-45 minutes
Personal rating (⚀-⚅): ⚅

It is time for another My Most Played Games for the Month post!

December was a pretty good month. The mood was festive, the days were chill, the games were aplenty! My game group and I managed to sneak to a secluded wintery wonderland called the town of Krusevo for our hopefully annual LateEssen Con. We played most of the Essen releases and really really heavy and long games. It was a blast, 3 days of total mayhem!

This is not to say that we just played heavy games. We included a bunch of little card games like the now evergreen Coup and the fast and tricky (!!) Indulgence.

December was also the month in which I got Charterstone and started playing through it, so far it is a blast!

2017 was a great year and it definitely ended strong for me!

My Most Played Games for December are (ordered by number of plays): .

#1 Coup
#2 Gaia Project
#3 Heaven & Ale
#4 Mystery Rummy: Jack the Ripper
#5 Charterstone
#6 Clans of Caledonia
#7 The Colonists
#8 Indulgence
#9 Reworld

Another wonderful year is at a close!

Board games published in 2017 were definitely not aimed at me as a gamer, with a lot of cooperative and campaign games getting released. My gaming group is not big on cooperative games, as for campaign games, I don't have anything against them, just that they require A LOT of time dedicated to them! There were however some solid and innovative games released this year and reflecting overall on 2017 it seems to be the year of fun and memorable experiences for me, with some solid grindy euros sprinkled in the mix.

I have certainly not played every game released this year, but there were some pretty popular flops of the year for me which are not on the list such as Anachrony, Transatlantic and Clans of Caledonia.

One game on this list might jump up even higher during next year, and that game is Charterstone. We just started playing it recently and are taking our time, not rushing anything and enjoying every game. So far it seems great, is is everything I might want from a legacy board game. We will see how it ranks in a month from now when we probably finish it :) Here is to another great board gaming year!

#1 Unlock!
#2 Heaven & Ale
#3 Fast Forward: FORTRESS
#4 Near and Far
#5 Riverboat
#6 Finished!
#7 Fast Forward: FEAR
#8 Gaia Project
#9 Charterstone

Check out this great series of Harvest photos from @boardgamechemistry - Harvest - a really cute worker placement game with a strong fantasy farming theme. From the whimsical crop names to the intuitive game play, the theme really comes through. The game plays smoothly, quickly, and is very fun. There are tons of different action cards, buildings and variable player powers, which give this game a lot of replay ability. It feels like a big game in a tiny box. Highly recommended!

#Essen17 #LeBienEtLeMalt #HeavenAndAle. Très calculatoire, rapide et simple d’accès si ce n’est ce décompte final tordu. #j2s #boardgames #bgg

First game of Chimera Station. It was a fun worker placement game in which you design and modify your own workers. A little unbalanced towards the end, though.

Tybor der Baumeister is set in the world of Longsdale, previously seen in Oh My Goods! and its expansions.

During the game, each player receives a hand of five multipurpose cards, each depicting a professional (priest, soldier, merchant, craftsman, etc.) who has come to Longsdale. After choosing a card to draft, the remaining cards are passed to the next player, then you may choose how to play your chosen card, as a worker, builder or citizen in the city.

You carefully choose the role of the professional in order to build the most buildings which give you victory points and some special scoring rules. After a predetermined number of rounds, the point values of the buildings are summed, and whoever has the most points wins.

The trick of the game is that Tybor der Baumeister contains "chapters" and scenarios set during Tybor's lifespan that serve as variants for tasks or rules of play, with 32 possible combinations. You can play through the whole story sequentially or just choose a random chapter and scenario and play a quick game.

Tybor der Baumeister is a simple and fast game that scratches the draft itch, but what makes it stand out is those chapter and scenarios which always twist the rules slightly and no two games will play out the same.

Another good game by designer Alexander Pfister who is on fire lately! It is the perfect filler, highly recommended!

BGG Rating: 7/10

Why not dress the whole car in Alcantara? Much cooler than foil or lacquer!
