Whenever life gets you down, keeps you wearing a frown,
And the gravy train has left you behind
And when you're all out of hope, down at the end of your rope,
And nobody's there to throw you a line

If you ever get so low that you don't know which way to go
Come on and take a walk in my shoes
Never worry 'bout a thing, got the world on a string
Cause I've got the cure for all of my blues.

I take a look at my enormous pinus
And my troubles start-a melting away
I take a look at my enormous pinus
And the happy times are coming to stay.

I gotta sing and I dance, when I glance at my plants
And the feeling's like a sunshiney day
I take a look at my enormous pinus
And everything is going my way.

>The worst components possible: which game has it?
Weird question. Perhaps some of the early Sierra Madre games? Obviously I don't own any of them so I can't say for sure. Out of the games that I have owned, its probably my mayfair edition of tigris & euphrates. great game though.
>What design or mechanic makes you recoil in disgust?
worker placement. almost all worker placement games are boring as hell, with no meaningful player interaction. i have not tried some of the classics yet, like bus. bus is the only worker placement game that interests me in the slightest currently.
>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
not really an issue for me. closest is probably sidereal confluence, but that's probably b/c i tried to shove a GMT counter tray in the box to sort out the cubes. i doubt there'll even be table space to put the counter trays on the table when i do play sidereal again lmao.

A box *way* bigger than needed, designed to hold a lot of kickstarter exclusive shit but useless for retail buyers. Empyreal was the game that broke the camel's back for me

Point salad games. I'm fine with a few distinct ways of scoring and giving players freedom, but the moment you enter point salad zone I'm out.
>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
Haven't had the issue yet, thankfully. FUCK boxes that don't fit the sleeved cards, though. I had to get rid of the very nice insert from both Undaunted games

Just take large IKEA bag. It's probably 1/100th of the price of a dedicated boardgame backpack and you can actually fit more than 5 boxes into it if needed. Especially if you are only carrying the stuff from car to house and vice versa. No idea how the boardgame acessoire industry managed to make people think boardgames are fragile objects.

I don't know what I'd say for all time worst, but the worst of those I own has to be the tiny ass pieces of GF9 Dune. I'm willing to accept a larger table footprint if it means a larger board and larger soldiers and spice -- Rex did it, you can do it.

>What design or mechanic makes you recoil in disgust?
Roll to move is the easy answer, so I will instead say that any game that wants me to look up story segments in a book multiple times in one sitting can go get fucked unless it's Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective.

>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
Figure out what the largest troublemaking components are, remove those, find alternative means of storing them -- a bag, a box, whatever.

It's only """"good"""" if you use Hirelings and only if you get a good combination of red factions. Something that confuses me about the Marauder expansion is that they deliberately tested and balance the LoTH and the KiI by playing 1v1s against each other, but in play they are super one sided in favor of the rats. It's probably a "which hirelings are in play balance it" kinda deal, probably Cat Hirelings are a MUST in 2-player games.

>What exactly are hirelings?
They are mini factions that populate the map and that you can hire in order to do extra stuff during your turn, help towards ruling or they just give cool faction-related abilities when demoted, For Example
>Marquise de Cat Hirelings are the Forest Patrol (Normal Side) and the Feline Physicians (Demoted Side)
>Forest Patrol setup puts the 12 forest patrol warriors in each clearing at the start of the game, and when you hire them you are able to use the actions described in their card, which in this case is to Move and Battle
>Feline Physicians are a passive ability that let you use a pseudo Field Hospital but for your own faction.
You probably see why they are an important addition to 2-3 players and even 4-6 players.
>>

>>86818621
>The worst components possible: which game has it?
I dunno, most games I've played have pretty nice components... Terraforming Mars' flimsy player mats annoy me, though.
>What design or mechanic makes you recoil in disgust?
Anything that takes away player agency. I won't play a game that plays itself to the point where you feel your decisions don't matter.
>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
With very few exceptions -like post-assembly miniatures games- if the game fit inside the box out of the factory, it will fit inside the box after you open it. This is rarely an issue until after sleeving cards and adding expansions.

Some boardgame boxes are pretty fucking awful from a structural perspective. Betrayal 3e is a pretty awful step down in component quality across the board and the box being weak as hell is part of it.
Most boxes are fine and having a secure transport to keep them from getting banged up during transport isn’t a bad on the surface, however, the bags are too small for big games which might be rare and/or expensive and are pretty heavily geared to normie shit like Catan or Wingspan that nobody should worry about taking care of because they are so easily replaced.

So, yeah, I agree they are dumb.

They "unlock" for the first player that reaches 4, 8 and 12VP and they roll a die to see for how many turns they get them, first players get less turns (max 2 turns) while non-first can have much more with them (up to 4). After that time runs out the hireling controller must give them to another player.

Yes that's a great deal on a great game. Pick up El Alamien as well, the changes it makes to Barbarossa's scoring system are all terrible but it can be used with Barbarossa and gives Barbarossa the needed variety in the cards to stop you from getting burned out on the game.

Hey Bullet<3 frens, do you actually care about shmups at all or is it just waifuism? If I make an R-type, Ikaruga, Thunder Force, DDP, Raiden, or Strikers 1945 shmup board game is that potentially interesting to you?

Pax Ren. Just the cheapest cards with horrendous graphic design, leftover pieces from unsold chess sets, generic wooden cubes and the worst plastic coins I have ever seen.
>What design or mechanic makes you recoil in disgust?
Worker placement combined with deckbuilding. All these new euros do this and they all play the fucking same. What's the point of deckbuilding when you play 4 hands during the entire fucking game. It's there just because it's a popular buzzword.
>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
Never had that problem? Games tend to fit in the box they came with... If it's because of an expansion then I just keep it in two boxes. Had to do this with the new sidereal expansion.

it's hard to tell, but I'd probably say classic hasbro games cheap out on everything, expecially on cards. cards in board games should be always on linen finish like picrel, everything else is not acceptable.
that said, I'm a bit frustrated about high frontier 4 all's tokens which are sub-par with the rest of the game.
>What design or mechanic makes you recoil in disgust?
i like every mechanic desu, if used correctly. what makes me recoil in disgust is when the game tries too much to balance everything at the point where everything feels the same and the gameplay becomes bland and not thrilling at all
>How do you deal with game boxes that cant hold all of their components?
i try my best to make it all fit or store parts in a different box while it makes me profoundly hate the developers and the publishers.
what really drives me insane is when they use shit-tier cards and you have to sleeve them, but then they no longer fit in the tray or in the box

Same fag that was talking about TTS, for me it's not the setup but the moment to moment of gameplay.

Is El Grande really that good? Looks to me like it's super similar to The King Is Dead which I found fine but not very exciting. Or what else would you compare it to?

I have legitimate fun playing light-weight games with my family. My parents, brother and I are all extremely competitive. My wife is very non-confrontational but get her in a game and she's a different beast.

Would be a bit weird to have played board games since 2007 and have only ever chased the hype. I am happy with the games I have, excited for some games coming down the pipeline, and disappointed at the games I own that don't get enough love. Overall I'm having fun and enjoying the company of my friends and family. At the same time, I can only dictate how the hobby should be experienced for myself. Someone wants to back and preorder every hot game, engage in excited community discussion, then drop it/sell it and move on, and that is what makes them happy, none of my business. Then again, I am fortunate enough to dictate on my terms the gaming environment, as I am the host and the main purchaser, which not all anons have agency over.
but if you think my favorite game is bad I will ree at you with the intensity of a thousand suns

And? I'm fine with the idea of others not liking things I do. There are plenty of objectively well designed games that just don't appeal to me.

Finally got 2 player Imperium down to 100 odd minutes. Maybe from playing solo enough or maybe my competitor is finally catching on despite changing nations up every scant time we do play it
It's got such a nice game groove it's a shame scoring doesn't feel nearly as rewarding as it should be

Interesting notion, what games have scoring or victory that feel well earned? I can think of examples where it feels lacklustre (getting that final point from crafting an item in Root is a classic example anons mention) but not many where you feel particularly triumphant. But Im also not usually reflecting on victory mechanisms through this lens.
>>
>>86827200
>what games have scoring or victory that feel well earned?
games with lower scores, usually. Res arcana and dale of merchants come to mind

It's criminally underrated and better than GttR in every way. It's less swingy and luck driven than GttR due to the shipping mechanic. My only suggestion is to look for the old version that has the 2 and 10 cubes rather than the new version with the cardboard colored cubes - the cardboard cubes are nigh useless.

>>86827151
NTA but the main issue with the scoring is there are a lot of cards where the scoring condition is “earn one VP per *arbitrary number* of resource/card type/keyword/etc.. you have.”
You do a lot of counting. Other than that the endgame is fine as long as your players aren’t retards rushing for Fame cards and end the game too early.

It's like a weird hybrid between tableau and deckbuilding. You have an upgrade deck you're trying to build into by cycling the main deck as fast as possible, in part by placing cards into (and a lot of times, underneath) your tableau. But the tableau is constantly chipped away (mostly to get powerful actions) and you're always buying stuff from the store, so your deck naturally bloats back up creating a real nice sense of tension.
And I think it hits that nice sense of flow deckbuilders have, not being reductive where you feel like you're spinning your wheels going nowhere, while at the same time not devolving into complete snowballing since it is easily a 90-120 minute game (if not 3 hours the first few plays)

At least, no snowballing until the scoring that is. That's when you count up absolutely everything you earned, which should be exciting, until you get a dozen of cards that conditionally scored and you're having to scribble it down only to realize your forgot about one card, now that changes 3 different scores on a few cards. Yeah, it's a mess.
It's not awful, awful (and there's a pretty good OCR app that can handle it) but when the game has enough fuzz b/w asymmetric nations, there are some games you will have no clue who won until you count up the 30 some cards. Which can kind of kill the climax after playing 2 hrs.
On the flipside there's a new sequel/expansion coming out with an official quickplay variant so that might alleviate a lot of problems I have with the game
also I'm not the Imperium obsessed anon who lurks around here, just you wait until he comes out

Can't be problematic if it was designed by a hypermilitant LBTQ'er.
>>
>>86827151
it's a pretty good and pretty thematic deckbuilder. nations play differently and have different levels of complexity. will probably take you a couple of games until you start enjoying it. has a fantastic solo mode.
>>
>>86827200
Hmm that's a fair point. I think it's a bit hazy in Imperium simply because it's a (somewhat) hidden count until the very end. Not a bad design choice, but definitely creates weird expectations compared to a visible score tracker.
If there's any that felt earned I suppose it's the ones that trigger/are triggered by a race condition e.g. RftG's first person to take up all the vp chips or put down the 12th card. Because even if you do end up losing, you felt like you had agency on it when you could clearly count up the scores at any point.
Or maybe it's just Lehmann scoring like >>86827219 mentions that I like
>>
>>86827454

Not to be a party pooper, but honestly I feel like root shouldn't even be in the same category as the other games there. Crescent Moon has more chaos in the old world DNA than Root DNA. Not that it saves it from being a bad game, though. I really dodged a bullet by trying it a few times before buying.
>>
>>86826141
The few anons that played it had a good point about it being similar to the Dune economy whilst being far more constricted - one role decides the success of another role, so you can't really directly interact with most players; all in all the interwoven economy between players didn't seem to work.
Of course, that's just me repeating what another anon said.

What's surprising is how simple it is.
Here's five cards. Try to sequence them as best you can over four turns. Do some minor math to remove npc minis and maybe respawn them, now upgrade one card. In that game loop you get the tightest teamwork, bluffing, zoning, and opponent reading payoffs.
Some players stick to one fighter, one guy hasnt played the same dude twice, and the satisfaction has been the same.
Lastly, almost all our games have been tight. Even when your team falls behind on levels, you never stop being a threat, and with clever coordination can pull of a kill that equalizes the experience difference. Ive been behind, one more death and its game, and we pulled off a minion push to base for win with perfect sequencing.
I cannot stop raving about GoAII and as soon as I see options to purchase or back for anons you bet Im sharing.

I mean, not that I don't like the game, but there is little to discuss because the game is an exercise in tactics and adapting.

>>86831282
Set collecting and resource management game where you move around a market in the Edo Period trying to find artisans in order to become the "Iki", which means to be the gold standard of society as a person in Edo by being the most cultured and help to make the end of year's festival the most beautiful.

Players get a card draft to fill the market themselves, then they move around the main board to hire them, and then use them to gain resources to get buildings and stuff, there's also a chance the main buildings catch on fire, destroying everything which I think it's a funny thematic thing. It's very light but pretty rich in options, and non-aggresive since you can't really block other players aside from not helping against fires.

I found it ok. It's pretty quick and cheap, but I haven't had the desire to play it in years. I like the portability of Hive pocket, but tbqh the moments where I specifically want one game that fits in my pocket with me don't really exist; and I assume that the extra chunkyness does feel better.

good to know. i wondered if the extra chonk would make the game that much more satisfying

in terms of portability i'd probably take it over to game nights but don't know if I'd plan on taking it somewhere where I'd be really limited on space.

i'm kinda edging towards pocket as a) it's available for like £10 less and b) regular size doesn't include the expansions

that said my local appears to have carbon in stock at a seemingly reasonable cost, which would include most of the expansions. that said I can't help but feel I'd prefer the multicolor sets just for readability/looking pretty, and my local has a pocket pillbug available (plus the string bag seems so much nicer than the early-2000s cd case thing the regular versions have)

I own the expansions and the moonfall expansion is worthwhile. The whales and dragons can be discussed. Pandas are fun and the moon princess is nice if you want a coop or solo game.

Kingdom Death Monster is an extremely expensive coop boss battle game with some settlement building elements perhaps best thought of as XCOM meets Monster Hunter: The Board Game. It has some of the best minis in the business but the psychosexual grimdark horror of it and Poots's... artistic business style puts the average board game player off. Try it on Tabletop Simulator if you're curious, and if you like it everything's on sale for the next 6 hours or so.

>a-at least the gameplay is good
"No!" The gameplay is dreadful; the game was terrible. As I played, I noticed that every time a minor power was played, the player did it for the symbols instead of an interesting effect.

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time a card was played for symbols only. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Reuss' mind is so governed by bland effects and thinly veiled set collection that he has no other style of gameplay. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Spirit Island by the same Kenneth Johnson. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these manchildren are playing Spirit Island at 31 or 32, then when they get older they will go on to play Phase 10." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you play "Spirit Island" you are, in fact, trained to play Phase 10.

it's look like a literal TTS mod for KDM, for 30$
but because it's poots, he's also selling a "Master Key Set" for 300$, which gets you a plastic key, and a sign certificate

I prefer TM. Arguably the tech tree is better than the simple cult tracks in TM. But it's unnecessary complexity, TM keeps you glued to the board instead of figuring out a second puzzle. And I prefer the tightness of the predesigned board, the modularity in Gaia kinda takes away from the competition for space that's central to TM. And yeah for some reason the art in TM is wonky but charming but in Gaia it's bland even though it's the same style. Also my favorite part of TM is how beautiful the board looks at the end, whenever I introduce it to someone new they always stand up and start taking pictures of the board at the end. Gaia just looks cheap with those plastic components.

>a-at least the general is good
"No!" The general is dreadful; the posts were terrible. As I read, I noticed that every poster claimed to love 18xx and Pax Pamir.

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time a GMT game was mentioned in name only. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. /tg/'s mind is so governed by bland stock share certificates and thinly veiled FBI training simulators that they have no fun. Later I read a lavish, loving review of /tg/ by the same Moot. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these manchildren are playing posting on /bgg/ at 31 or 32, then when they get older they will go on to be a no games." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you post on /bgg/, you are, in fact, trained to play no games.

>>86834608
I mostly agree with >>86834714, especially on the art. TM feels strangely comfy in all its generic fantasy art and colours, GP looks like 70s futurist comic art in the worst way possible.

Nontheless, GP honestly is the better game, it takes the blandest part of TM and turns it into the main attraction (the tech board). I wouldn't say it's unnecessarily complex. I think it's just that the two games are very similar, but GP changes a few concepts that feel unintuitive if you're used to GP (like Range). I haven't played the most recent TM expansion, but I don't think you can really go wrong with either game if you like euros.
Also you can try out either (or is it "both"?) on boardgamearena

not really.
I'm thinking about using them for games like CoC, WotR, SW:R, EU:POP etc.
I wonder if they are gonna be as useful as i imagine in a long games where you have sub 10 cards and you want to put some one them on the view to remember about them, while letting your hand to be more concentrated.
>>
>>86835620
I play it from time to time. Definitely not something you want to bring to table all the time but it is fun experience especially at higher player counts.
The rules are horribly written though and it is not simple enough to play as partyish game with non-boardgamers.

They're available on the backerkit at a slightly favorable rate, but I'm not biting the bullet for 800 freedom dollars.

Since shipping is so expensive, it will cost like 70 bucks if I just get the 2 base games and have to pay shipping. This is the best I can do to meet the shipping threshold, though. Honestly I have no idea when I'll be able to use that playmat except with my wife who finds anime tiddies hilarious. I wish it was integrated into the rest of the Japanime site so I could at least grab some sleeves or something to meet free shipping instead of this stuff.

Nothing special happens on the 10th lantern year, but I agree you can easily get 4 survivors curbstomped by the kingsman on the year prior. Shouldn't be too much of a problem since you usually have a lot of remaining survivors in your settlement by this point.
>the worst, quality wise, miniatures in the industry (if you don't have PHD in plasticology then good luck assembling these minis)
Literally the opposite concerning the quality, but I concede that there should be an official ressource for assembling EVERY miniatures, the fact that there isn't is a real joke. Just have your gf do the harder ones since small fingers give an advantage for smaller pieces.
So overall I would say you are parroting an opinion you found somewhere on the internet and are not arguing in good faith.

Very poetic use of a Pinus taeda tile!

Hey /tg/, I made a boardgame during quarantine and wanted to shill it here.

kCaloria gives you the chance to build an expansive and intricate food chain that must overcome obstacles at every turn! Sow the seeds to a thriving ecosystem with precious water tiles, grow verdant gardens with every fungi/plant tile, and fill this space with the perfect balance of herbivores, omnivores, carnivores, and humans too!

You can learn more about Kcaloria here:

https://kcaloria.squarespace.com/

Our kickstarter is launching December 3rd. You can sign up here:

Dropped Pax Pamir 2nd ed and Ashes
PP2 is still a solid game with its engaging temporary alliance system, but man oh man does pax ren's gameplay give me that little bit extra in exciting board state developments and goals. Helps that PR also plays well at 1v1.
For Ashes, the one guy i play it with moved far away, while we have ashteki, and the stock decks are serviceable, it isnt the same as sitting down together, spending 20-30 minutes crafting
our own decks (we collectively got two complete collections of 1st ed) then doing several matches and adjustment rematches over an afternoon and evening.
SW2s asynchronous online matches took over in its stead. We would play SW1 until four in the morning when we first got into it, SW2 is a straight upgrade, dont really need to deckbuild, we can play the same match over three days, if need be, board states never get so complex that you have to spend time reassessing what your plan was two days ago. It has really been a hero fitting into our new reality.
I still love ashes and it hurts I can't play it with my friend the way I want.
Meanwhile I've raved and ranted enough about sakura arms and guards here that you already likely know my opinion.

Any try-before-buy on Table Top Simulator?
What's the 'weight' rating you're expecting on BGG?
Any specific influences from other games?
Do you have experience sourcing the mass manufacture for board games? A lot of first time kickstarters flub this.
Do you have a very wide no promises estimated MSRP? I'm talking ballpark you're aiming for, like 20-40$ or something?
Kickstarter isn't up yet, but the follow up question would be: Is there an estimation on the kickstarter discount on said MSRP?
Do you plan on a tightly packed game box, or are you going to pull a Splendor and have a box that can fit 3 other games for no reason?
Have you considered posting offensive, racist, revisionist, controversial inflammatory comments all over BGG in hopes of a ban to build your street cred? It seemed to work well for a few designers starting early in their career.
How's Houston? I've never been, but I'm trapped in Seattle and looking at other metro areas, Portland looks like a time capsule of Seattle but more of the same shit, and St Lois is somehow less safe than fucking Reno. I heard Houston was late to the party but finally went full retard in the housing market like everyone else.
