Board is already full on without that.


    I played a new game last night called Blood Rage which was pretty fun. I'd say it's a combination of Catan and 7 Wonders in terms of strategy. We had 8 people so we split into teams of 2 and my head was spinning - I need to see games played rather then have the rules told to me, just doesn't stick. Was super fun though, trying to get our strategy was hard enough let alone keeping an eye on what your competition is doing to try clock block them somewhat - Catan in a sense. Reason I say it is also like 7 wonders is because everyone starts with either 7 or 9 cards, select one then pass it to the left so you obviously want to get stuff that suits your needs, pass on stuff that might come around and keep in mind what you pass as others will likely play it (can't see the cards chosen until they're played).

    If you know your Vikings gods and stuff, will probably enjoy it more - I know very little but it's still pretty cool.

    Taboo is a brilliant game when you have people over. Recent release of "Taboo: Up Late" is fucking unreal as well especially after a cutla drinks. Boys v. Girls at a party with partners makes it interesting as well.
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    I actually would. Have previously tried to organise board game night with my mates and didn't get much success. My social life is non existent these days so I'm down to nerd up

    Yep but it's not free, it's on steam. Might be worth waiting for it when it's on sale.

    Pretty much has every board game avaible as the community creates them for free and you just download.

    I think Ticket to Ride: Europe is probably the best version to get

    Europe is really solid. The original is also good.

    It's a solid game, only knock is the replayability is a bit low if you play with the same people. The positive is it becomes a more clinty game in that scenario as everyone will start blocking others when they know what they're doing, often out of spite. One of the best parts is it's quick because there is no trading so basically if you play with the kind of peanuts who take forever trying to trade rape everyone before doing nothing, they just have to pass onto the next turn.
