Another win in Tapestry! This time with the Merrymakers πŸ™‚ I really like this game!

First two games of #tapestry by @jameystegmaier: Won one and lost one. I REALLY liked and enjoyed this game! πŸ™‚
β€’
Pros:
- Quick setup
- Easy-to-learn and streamlined rules
- Beautiful art, great components and oohh those landmark buildings 😍
- High replayability β€’
Cons:
- High dependence on civ + tapestry cards combos (if you get the right combo, you definitely have higher chances of winning)
- Big table required
- Thematically incongruent (you can invent zeppelins before inventing nails or you develop virtual reality by developing a military career)
β€’
I have only played two games, but I would recommend this game. It's fun, easy to learn and hard to master, and it has crazy thematic twists that are fun to experience.
β€’
I found myself equally laughing about some situations as well as heavily thinking about what would my optimal next move be πŸ™‚
β€’
What are your thoughts? Have you played it?

This is the best packaging ever from a Kickstarter!!! I'm so happy with my medieval butcher resin set by @angrystagwargaming! Can't wait to paint it! πŸ™‚

First time playing Tiny Epic Zombies by @gamelyngames and all objectives completed! It was fun.
β€’
Pros:
- Portable, yet requires a table
- Fun
- Thematic, very nice art/graphic design - ITEMeeples!
β€’
Cons:
- Long setup time for such a small game - Incomplete tokens (missing a C ingredient token)
- Poor quality stickers on the zombies (cracking up and falling apart)
β€’
Overall it is a fun and entertaining little game, but the production quality could have been better

And so we lost our first attempt at lifting the curse... This game is amazing! It takes looong time, but it's worth it! πŸ™‚
β€’
Pros:
- Highly thematic, high replayability, immersive, nice cooperative game β€’
Cons:
- Merciless, long reboxing time after finishing the game, big table required

Cons:

Relaxing with a beer and a game of Chez Geek πŸ™‚. Have you played it? It's a fun card-drafting game about getting slack by @stevejacksongames

Finally I played Dwarven Smithy and I loved it! It's a very dynamic and interesting game and the metal coins are great! πŸ™‚ Long overdue after the Kickstarter fulfillment, but now it looks like it will hit the table often
β€’
Pros:
- Highly thematic, nice components, dynamic and strategic
Cons:
- Not being able to go fight monsters with the amazing items created! πŸ˜…

So this was my first time doing the "triangle" (base coat + shade + highlight) and I'm happy with the result. Still plenty of room for improvement though. What do you think?

Simurgh was my last played game before leaving #lincon2019. It is a fun worker placement game with a theme of dragons. I liked it πŸ™‚
β€’
Pros:
-Relatively quick setup, nice art and components, you raise dragons!
Cons:
-The two end game triggers don't seem to be well interconnected, so either you win quickly after 5 goals or it takes forever with the tiles in the wilds

This is another prototype I got the chance to try at #lincon2019, Goetia: Nine Kings of Solomon by @demonicgamesboardgamecompany. The art is very good and the game is very fun, after all you're invoking demons in it! πŸ˜…. Looking forward to the Kickstarter campaign in July πŸ‘Ή.
β€’
Pros:
-Quick setup, highly thematic, simple yet strategic
Cons:
-It takes a bit to get a hold of some of the rules

Yesterday I ran into this raw diamond, a prototype of Whirling Witchcraft by @erik_a_sunden here at #lincon2019. This game is amazingly fun! It's very engaging and with a high player interaction that keeps you on your toes all the game! I look forward to its release πŸ™‚
β€’
Pros:
- Super fun, highly thematic, full player interaction, fast yet engaging and strategic turns
Cons:
-Prototype status, so I couldn't buy it right away! πŸ™

This is another game I've been wanting to try since long ago, Village. I got my chance yesterday and I have mixed feelings, but it was fun to play! πŸ™‚
β€’
Pros:
-Highly thematic, high replayability, beautiful artwork
Cons:
-Worker placement twist with the cube drafting (to me, a worker placement game is where I put my worker and apply the action, not grabbing a cube then placing a worker πŸ€”)
β€’
I would definitely recommend it to try, but I wouldn't get it. It's a different twist on worker placement games mixed with a great thematic mechanic (time management)
