First for Wingspan is a below average game
Thoughts on Cosmic Encounter?
>playing kdm on tabletop sim just to see what it's like>roll a crit and hack the white lion's paw off>nearly cumhuh. this game seems exciting.
>>88955142Classic ameritrash bullshit generator.Tolerable once or twice a year max.
>>88955142Fun but entirely dependent on aliens and group. Best way to play it in my opinion is to curate the competitive but easy to play aliens ahead of time and deal out 2 each as normal. That saves you the hassle of digging out the alien cards once you randomize the flairs and it ensures no one gets a dumpster tier alien.
>>88955269that's a fluke, it's usually your guys getting cut to pieces
>>88955142generates laughs so it's not that bad.
>>88955142Out of all the games I've ever played, it is frighteningly near the bottom. Right next to the abomination that was munchkin Rick and Morty edition, which least had the decency to end mercifully quickly
>>88955318i'm well aware, but i think it was a pretty good first impression. the hit locations + ai cards are really cool and give the fight a lot of flavor (tho i can also see the 500th fight with the lion getting kind of boring/predictable)
>remember Aeon Trespass Odyssey is a thing>try to look up recent news>top results are some sort of drama with blackmail and paid reviews>two of the people involved wear kippahDoes this happen a lot?
>>88955142Fun if you just ignore yellow aliens entirely because they're overcomplicated and shit and stick to just either all greens for balance or all reds for chaos. And make sure to read the rulebook WELL when teaching because it's a dogshit rulebook and the last thing you want is rule lawyering to drag out the pace. Don't play with more than five players either. It's sortof shitty but I've also played 6 games of Cosmic encounter so far and wouldn't be opposed to playing more.
>>88955736Ohhhh, so THAT'S what the box looks like.
Do you still have time for games after having kids?
I wanna get Dominion and an expansion, which expansion is best?
Now that the dust has settled, Marvel Champions or Marvel Legendary?
>>88955358that's why poots is coming out with an expansion monster that can replace the lion completelybasically, the three base monsters are fine. if you're playing enough that they get boring, you're already the target audience for an expac. this is true for basically all board games.
>>88956607If you absolutely must, Crisis Protocol is probably the way to go. Unless you're just a co-opfag in which case kys.
>>88956406You won't get much played for the first 3 years or so, but after awhile you'll have an all time gaming buddy.
>>88956406Sure. After the first four months we sleep trained that kid and resumed hosting. This past fall and winter i was gaming 2-4 nights a week. If it weren't for recently returning to school, it would have continued that way until the second kid popped out this summer.
>>88957164i always see parents talking about playing shit like gloomhaven with their 7 year olds and i look at my 7 year old nephew like "there's no fucking way these kids are sitting through a 3 hour long level of this shit, not to mention how complicated the rules are and how much reading on their cards they have to do"
Thoughts on susd?
>>88955318>KDMum yikes /ouyguys/ susd hate it for being a brutal game with actual women
>>88957785*blocks your path*
>>88957850That doesn't count as hecking toxic objectification because uh...
>>88957195They can surprise you. Mine (13 and 12 now) started to ramp up hard around age nine. Now we play GoA 2 all the time, get TI4 on the table at least once a month, and regularly tackle titles that I've seen grown-ass adults with advanced degrees fail to understand. Early exposure builds the skills necessary to adapt to all kinds of game systems.
>>88957195Yeah my colleague kids are only interested in minecraft I dont know how I am ever going to convince mine to sit down for a game of agricola
>>88957878his folks play simple boardgames with him a lot (they have some jr. version of catan that he likes) so maybe he'll evolve into a big board gamer after all hah
How old are you people?
>>88955055Yo can I grab the card game pic where one guy just lost a match and his deck wins by "flooping" and the guy says I'm good at flooping, and the other says "apparently not because I won."
>>88958871what is this rick and morty shit
>>88959103I think the image predates rick and morty but I'm having trouble finding it.
>>88955142Strictly better than Dune.
>>88959456Kek how can someone post that with a straight face?
>>88959521The only thing Dune has "up" on Cosmic Encounter is its theme, and how many of you actually read the book before playing the game?
>>88957782I've heard that Matt and Quinns have joined in on the Ukraine conflict. They've joined the Russians. Not cos thery want to be the "bad guys", they just really like their hats.
>>88958871>floopingIs that: "I floop the pig"? Because that would be Adventure Time.
>>88959579I don't think anyone will fall for that anonGood effort, but it's too absurd
Recently listened to BGB and found a question they got pretty interesting.So, which 4 people are on your boardgame Mt. Rushmore, anon?
>>88959642To be fair, Russian/Soviet armed forces were always stylin', even during ye olden times of Tzars and Knyaz's the Druzhina looked cooler than english knights.That's why I need more games like Rurik or Undaunted: Stalingrad.
>>88958091Don't let them spend all day playing Minecraft. Simple as.
Is monster hunter BG good? Or it is "buy miniatures, make game"?
>>88960777It's...ok. Not worth the hefty price tag though.
>>88960098I've heard rumours that Quinn's is needing more games like Rurik or Undaunted: Stalingrad.
>>88960914Do you know, is Primal better?I played only KDM and didn't like civ building part. MHW looks too bare with only hunts. Don't know about Primal, but heard it combat mechanic is better than MHW
>>88961607I haven't played Primal so I can't comment. MHW has a short hunt phase before the monster fight where you basically do a quick "choose your own adventure" thing to gather materials and information before fighting the monster. Every time you fight the same monster at a higher level, you start at a different place and can access different areas in the hunt phase.
>>88960068Knizia and Richard Garfield are auto-includes. Christian T. Petersen I don't particularly like but he probably belongs up there. Steve Jackson just to troll through the ages.
>>88961703>Christian T. PetersenI like TI but there's a hell of a lot of more talented designers than him I'd put up there. The guy made exactly 1 notable game.
>>88960068Someone with a great stache is a must
>>88961733FFG has been a pillar of the community for decades though, and arguably less cancerous than others that could be mentioned.
>>88960068arguably Klaus Teuber
>>88962132while catan was huge, I dont think thats worth a spot on its own
>>88961703>>88960068I agree about Garfield and Knizia. I'd argue that Petersens importance in the business came much more from him being FGGs head than him as a designer. Though there's a bunch of people that come to mind but feel like they arent quite there; Eklund, Feld, Rosenberg, Vlaada, and a dozend others I couldn't think of now. Oh, I fogot, I'd give Herman a spot for sure
>>88950487Thanks anon, I think defiant sounds best but I'm still deciding if I want it now or later.
>>88955142A great game, hated by retards. People here will unironically tell you there's no negotation in CE.
>>88960068Phil EklundJorisJeroenCole Wherle
Thoughts on what IP is Forbidden Stars 2.0 gonna have?Autor said he already made 15 playable races and it's sci-fi.
>>88955142unbalanced garbage with shit mechanics and the most pure example of crabs in a bucket masquerading as balance.
>>88956406yes and in 9 years you have a built in board game group. they do take fucking forever to learn to read tho.
>>88963578Does it hurt?
>>88963041>you weren't dealt N cardswhat now cunt?
>>88963586yes, everything hurts all the time.
>>88956547First of all, if you intent to play it 4p, don't.Having said that, I would probably go with either Plunder or Adventures. Plunder just has a generally high number of interesting cards, while Adventures gives you more decisions to make during the game, so it doesn't feel as much like most of the game happens during your opening hand, although most of the recent expansions have done a decent job of remedying it. Renaissance is also a solid option if you want one that's more basic.
>>88963616Most likely I'll just be playing it with 2 players, I'm hoping for an expansion that adds more variety without adding too much more complexity. I've been playing the steam version of the base game and it's cool but you see the same cards all the time and there's only like eight in the set worth playing.
>>88963041Actually, it's a shit game loved by retards. People on the gulag will unironically tell you there's player agency in CE
>>88963859Found one of the retards in question, lmao.
>>88957782the old videos with quinn matt and paul are comfyAva is absolutely horrendous
>>88956547Dominion is the worst of the deckbuilders. Get Valley of the Kings, Arctic Scavengers, or literally any other deckbuilder.
The gf doesn't like pandemic because she finds it too stressful I want to try Spirit Island, better to do solo I guess
>>88963904this discussion plays out the same with CE fags eventually admitting it's a terrible game but they love it in spite of or because of that even. CE is designed to be shit and anyone who enjoys it is either stupid or clueless.
>>88964008>gfthats why you first take her as GF before you marry. To root out problem cases like this
>>88964047>To root out problem casesSpeaking of, she didnt care for woodland violence either.
>>88964065>Doesn't like Pandemic and RootSounds like she's pretty cool tbqh
>>88963958>Liking Matt or his reviewsEwww.
Stalkerbros... It's over...
>>88964206I'd still play this before hero quest or hansa teutonica
>>88964206Is this gamw an exercise of many red flags you can possibly put into one paragraph?
>>88964065wtf you were not me but have the same gf what is going on here
>>8895879825>>88960068knizia, klaus teuber, carl chudyk, and friedemann friese>>88962178it's about the impact catan had on board games, rather than whether or not catan itself is worthy.
>>88963504It's gonna get an IP attached to it? Goddamn, they should first make sure the game is actually good first
confess your sins I enjoy terraforming mars better without drafting
>>88964464I enjoy wingspan, but ive never played it physically.I am fed up waiting for Oceania to drop on steam.
>>88964446Game has been developed like 3-4 years ago. For this whole time publisher was looking for some IP, unsuccessfully, untill not long ago.
>>88964206>AWnot even gonna waste my time looking at this shit.
>>88964013>this discussion plays out the same with CE fags eventually admitting it's a terrible game but they love it in spite of or because of that even. CE is designed to be shit and anyone who enjoys it is either stupid or clueless.untrue btw, keep consuming whatever goyslop you like
>>88960068As others have said Knizia and Garfield belong up there as auto-locks. I’d also include Teuber up there purely for the impact Catan has had for almost 30 years. The final spot is a tossup between Charles S. Roberts and Mark Herman. Both are hugely important to wargaming which is hugely important to boardgaming as a whole.
>>88964464I give lots of designers and games shit because it's fun, but at the end of the day I can enjoy almost every game I've ever played on some level. I still despise CE
>>88964464I love Sakura Arms
>>88964464I bought Valley of Kings because I trusted /bgg/, a mistake I intend not to repeat.
>>88964669Into the stocks with you!
>>88964008My children can beat pandemic. It's not exactly a difficult game.
>>88964913It's not about the difficulty, it's about the race against the clock kind of thing.
>>88964355Name some. I have no idea what I'm looking at.I don't play these kind of games but I liked the video game.
>>88964464drafting does nothing but make terraforming mars longer. I can never understand why people who dislike TM often insist on drafting as it only drags the game out, and I mean the actual game not the added time to fuck around actually drafting.
>>88964283Why? You don't like Hansa Teutonica?
>>88964931well don't ever have her play millennium blades.
>>88964942for me it's also because it causes players to play what they wantfuck you, you get these 4 cards. don't like them? figure something out
>>88964990I mean without drafting you get 4 cards and have the opportunity to buy them. with drafting you get 4 cards and have the opportunity to draw them. drafting doesn't give you less options nor give you those cards for free.
Anyone ordered from Boardlandia before?They have a PO I want and theyre the cheapest since coolstuff didnt update their stock.
should I play this
>>88965119preorder, my bad for not typing it out.
>>88965131that's what I assumed first but I didn't get why stock mattered. they're a physical store, that would be good enough for me.
>>88964206>Coop>Solo>Awaken realms>Storybased>Dungeon crawler>Already 3 large boxesAll of that combined with the biggest of all red flags crowdfunding
>>88965102Yeah they're good, they got good customer service that you can ask on the gulag for them to restock games. Downside is their warehouse or whatever is a mess that it takes them longer than others to ship your games.
>>88965164>>88965188>Downside is their warehouse or whatever is a mess that it takes them longer than others to ship your games.Thanks for the vote in confidence, I was waiting for this to come out for the past 6 months already but I was informed it released today so hopefully it ships right away.
>>88965176Was meant for>>88964932
>>88964707got another one boys. Now get kemet
>>88965102they have the best customer service when they fuck up. right behind miniature market. They sent me the wrong "version" since it was the normal instead of deluxe, and just told me to keep the normal one, and they'll send the deluxe one. also, they fucked up on a pricing error, and honored the price instead of canceling the order. great store. their store wide 10 - 15% off also applies to their ding and dent selection.
>>88965114Yes, so you can finally tell me if it's worth it. It's been on my "look into" list for years
>>88965736That's great to know if I order from them again. I kept seeing some bad reviews on reddit which is why im glad I asked you guys.
>>88965564I unfortunately own that game as well, but you don't get credit for that one.
>>88957195Not gloomhaven but my 7 year old is more than happy to sit through 2 hours plus of zombicide or 2 hours of thunder alley.FWIW I help coach his baseball team and it is quite possible your nephew is one of those annoying retard kids who are raised on an ipad and mcdonalds?
>>88965564What's wrong with Kemet? I've played it a few times but haven't won yet though it's been close. I thought it was a fine game tbdesu.
>>88964707really? my group digs it. lot of take that actions and strategically entombing. we've played all 3 versions and mixed 1&2 so far. it's in my top 3 deckbuilding games.now eminent domain, /bgg/ sold me hard on that many years ago and nobody in my group cares for it at all.
>>88960068Garfield, kramer, teuber, kniziaSpecial mention to chvatil, eklund, chudyk, Lehmann, rosenburg, Wallace
>>88966414kemet is good
>>88966414kemet was once the only game /bgg/ universally agreed on. because of this no game trolls came in and claimed they didn't like kemet. never provide a reason just being contrarian I guess. It's been like that ever since.
how do /we/ feel about Great Western Trail
>>88966235>I unfortunately own that game as wellhehehe>but you don't get credit for that one.ahhh, come on anon. What about Root, cosmic frog. Can we trick you into buying those as well?>>88966414we pretend we trick people into buying good games.
>>88966435This man has the right of it.Herman gets another mountain in Washington.
For me, it's legacy.
>>88966475Really like it. My go-to midweight euro. It's really damn solid, quick, relatively easy and still has quite some depth. Less enthusiastic about the expansion which is merely good.
>>88966475GWT1 is kinoGWT2 suffers the wokeRttN is excellentGWT Argentina seems different enough to be worth playing (purchased not played)GWT New Zealand haven't seenIf anything GWT suffers from buildings being too good. The 1st edition suffers from memeing into kansas 3+ times but RttN, then 2nd fixed that. Orange Cows (Simmental) are only available in 2nd (afaik) so you have to suck tranny cock or spend more than it's worth to get them in edition 1.GWT is 9/10 with my group.
>>88963958What's "Ava's" real name? The one they'll put on his tombstone.
>>88966482>cosmic frognta but you got me on this. everybody would rather play the bullet series.
>>88966557>everybody would rather play the bullet series.I feel conflicted about this. Love bullet, but i miss having a gang that would roll with the punches of CF
>>88966557Is cosmic frog similar to bullet?
>>88966557my group is too fucking tryhard to enjoy cosmic frog.>>88966591i don't think so no.
>>88966557Bullet<3 was the next game I wanted to trick you into buying. What about tanto cuore. Dont tell me you already got that too
>>88966591no, we just didn't have the right group to go hard into the outer reaches and bullet heart and start were immediately more popular and played a dozen times.
>>88966620Hes /bgg/-core, there is nothing more you can do to help him
>>88966552I don't know xer(???) name
>>88966620I don't but I've been tempted by barbaossa and el alamien for my waifu deck builders.
>>88966632well if we tricked him enough then we did our job. Stupid anon, buying good games like that
What is your favorite twitter bait?For me it's >Spirit Island is a great game because you kill white invaders
>>88966647Here's a twist: Quintin Smith
>>88966984that would explain a lot
>>88966557Those are some nice looking frogs.Painted my own having never painted miniatures before and I'm considering stripping them and restarting.Love CF though. Wish my friends would focus on fighting more than farming but they're a bunch of pussies.
So what game are we going to meme next?
>>88967305since we're doing deckbuilders...
>>88967366more like EUGH amirite
>>88967305As in: shit on with/without reason or hype up?
>>88967390Something we can tell someone to buy whenever they;re asking.
>>88967120the best part of CF is how objectively superior fighting is if people are farming. like eventually you just get the memo that you need to be a huge dick to win and that's when it gels>>88967305i think Baseball Highlights 2045 should be /bgg/core
>>88964537It’s going to be some awful, shit IP, isn’t it? Like nuTrek or Star Wars or Doctor Who.
>>88967441i find it tough to attack other frogs because turn order is so random, and attacking is not guaranteed to reap any rewards.
>>88967441>you need to be a huge dickno you merely need to be in second so when everyone else piles on the obvious front runner you can win. sure it will be shared but why should 1 person win a board game when 4 people can?
>>88967305Uhhhh hopefully Oath so through sheer memetic zeitgeist I finally have a simplified understanding of that game
>>88964621>keep consuming whatever goyslop you likeThe fucking irony.
>>88967516just the action economy of being able to leap, attack, grab some tiles, and claim their spot makes it very worth itwith the random turn order and how oomph work it is important to time your strike but that's part of the fun>>88967616i think how tile scoring works mitigates piling on to some extent. sure you could all steal tiles from the guy in first, but maybe he doesn't have what you need most (more likely if he's already been pilfered) and the player in second does
>>88967750oh shit I read CF as CE... lol.
>>88967846I suspected as much
>>88967846i was a little confused about a shared win in Cosmic Frog lol
>>88964764This comic artist is garbage because he referred to Eva as a deconstruction, proving he knows nothing
>>88966414It's such a hecking fucking YOIKES that you can buy slaves under the heading white power. I mean my guy that's just insane in 2023, its like when arabian nights dismissed the existence queertranxfolx, yoikes
>>88967305Aeon Trespass. You know you want to.
>>88968031>he referred to Eva as a deconstruction,Shinji what the fuck are you on about
>>88968054I dont think anon's are susceptible to giant kickstarters and campaign games. Needs to be a game that has decent availability (so anon can easily get it), not too popular (so anon is reliant on /bgg/s hype) and not too expensive. Something that looks okay at first glance, luring the unsuspecting anon in.
>>88968067There was a comic where he called Eva a deconstruction thus proving he's a fucking retard
>>88968096>history and english lit webcomic>yea but they commented on an animeNot following, Im missing something
>>88968115I might be getting confused with another comic artist, but RE Parrish is a know nothing faggot
>>88968131Thats hark a vagrant, i have no clue who youre talking about
>>88968085Damn those are some valid points. There was an anon shilling Boop a few threads back. It would be hilarious if that cought on.
>>88968187availability is shit. im sure more anon's wouldve been booppilled if it was easily available
>>88968165my bad, well let it be known RE Parrish is a know-nothing faggot
>>88968223Shame because it has a lot of meme potential.
A fucking deck of cards. What do?
>>88968618drinking games of course
>>88968618shove it up your arse
who is the tom brady of board games
ITS FUCKING BACKHOLY SHITi was about to whine like a bitch about the fact that the mgs site still had this fucking thing when it was canned for 2 years but turns out the guy just changed publishet to CMON>MGS3 remake>MGS collection including old games>MGS boardgame is not dead anymore man what a good day to be a MGS fan
>>88968618Knock is pretty good, takes seconds to teach, and plays well at a range of player counters.I've got a few other go-toes but not all of them have names.
>>88966475I like it. The pace of the game is entirely controlled by the players.
>>88968618Oh Hell is about the only game worth playing.
>>88968618Spoons is the best party game. It's easy, fun, quick, and get better with alcohol without becoming complicated.
FUCK YOU SAINE EAT LEAD AND TOXINS
Still working on 5th player
>>88969501>stazon pumpkinImpressive. Very nice!
It's sad to know that even in board games you can't get away from shilltubers. Everything is fake
>>88970033i like painting minisi painted my witcher minisnot well but i did it
We did it, Patrick!We saved Europe!
>>88955269While the gameplay loop is fine, it has three big problems:>Incredibly granular rules but no concise answers. You have to dig through so many cards and a book to get things done. Would have been better suited as a digital card board game.>Even though it is for up to 4 players, you are all functionally one player. Teamwork never feels rewarding. It always feels miserable.>Faggot japanese coomer art.
>>88970173>Incredibly granular rules but no concise answersRule of death>Even though it is for up to 4 players, you are all functionally one playerNot nearly as bad as something like pandemic or zombicide or nearly any other coop. It is best at 2-3 definitely but atleast each person actually makes their own decisions unlike the others I mentioned where it is a hive mind and obvious best play to game the system>Faggot japanese coomer art.I guess if you are a tranny I can see why you don't like it
>>88970056post in >>>/tg/wip/
>>88968618Play a traditional game.
>>88969871Ecelebs are in everything now and I hate it.
>>88966424why would I ever want a lot of take that actionsannoying as shit how it's impossible to mention dominion in this general without someone going "play this deckbuilder instead" even though it in no way succeeds at what dominion excels at
>>88964707Looking at pictures now, this looks like if National Geographic made a deckbuilder for teachers to use in classrooms
I sorry bros....I caved....I backed GoAII
>>88971490Wtf is GoAll?Can't find it anywhere.
>>88968747I'm not sure how I feel about this>no tank>no HIND DSeems stripped down from the IDW version. Probably to sell expansions.
>>88971490Sadly, that makes you as much part of the problem as the mr whale the fomofaggot that instabacks it.
>>88971201>at what dominion excels atAnd what, pray tell, is that?
>>88972346Having no interesting decisions after the static market is revealed and you choose what are the three cards you're gonna buy besides money and estates.
>>88955142It's a great game and people who don't like it are smoothbrains who can't into risk analysis or social interaction.
>>88965871It's basically worse terraforming mars.It is not a bad game but I would not recommend it.
>/bgg/ tells me pic related is back in print>drop ~$100 on the deluxe edition>never played it before but it sounds like funDid I fuck up bros?
>>88972516Never spend more than $50 on a party game.
>>88970056thin your paints
>>88972516It's a great game, but unless you end up really loving it you probably should have just got the regular edition.
>>88972458Look, anon, we can play this game again, but I really don't feel like it.You might enjoy the mayham and variety of different aliens, but pretending CE is strategic in any way is ridiculous. It lacks agency in almost every area, and is more or less a strict negotiation game. Add to that that a large part of the aliens are very uninteresting, the game is suprisingly long for its weight and the rules aren't particularly good and complete etc. If you enjoy it, that's fine. I enjoy playing betrayal occasionally. It's as shit a game as Cosmic, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun.
>>88970056>employing impasto on figurines
>>88972516The chonk is almost surreal and makes me almost giddy. As copeanon mentioned, the normal edition is fine and the deluxe edition is absurdly overproduced, but hang onto it. Get some plays in and if you're not in love you can flip it once it's no longer available and likely come out ahead.
>>88966591Both have a movement & sequencing puzzle element, but the similarities end there.
>>88973233>but the similarities end there.They both feature asymmetric powers, cool art, plenty of randomness, coop options and characters I want to fuck
what does this mean.
>>88973416Satisfy his appetite and you get the game for free.
What is your current go to game
>>88973502Go to as in: "I try to get it to the table most often" or as in "what I play with people that would not enjoy exploring Pericles further"?Pericles is the former, Ra or Modern art the latter>>88973524Also a good answer. Love me some cockroach poker. Never played with the "royal' thing that is in the newer versions as it seemed to add nothing but dilute the super straightforward basegame.

>>8895879833Glad to see it confirmed we are, in fact, an oldfact general. At least I suspect few people would find 4chan later in life and specifically for boardgames of all things
>>88972346I doubt you care, but I'll be generous and tell you regardless.Firstly, figuring out the setup is a fun puzzle, and Dominion is the most puzzle, given the open market and the large variety of different card interactions.Secondly, it's the most sandboxy. Games will different vastly depending on which cards are or aren't present, and the actual cards have a great degree of variety. Most deckbuilders deliver a more consistent and samey experience.Thirdly, I think the general gameplay arc is very solid in how you first have to build up, then find the moment to pivot to victory points, which slows you down again.
>>8895879830You win this time fed.
>>8895879834, same as majority of my group.Weve got one guy in his mid fifties that mentored me in uni and ges become the splotter sugar daddy, and two of my wifes distant cousins in their early twenties that will handle any game i throw at them.

>>88968618Deal out 3 red and 1 black card to each player and play Skull & Roses.Alternatively, Cocroach Poker: now with actual poker edition. First player to get a 5 card Poker hand that's better than 3 of a kind is crowned the loser, when picking up a card to pass it over you can name suit OR value, like with Royals in normal cockroach poker. It'll be hell but i wanna see if it'll be a fun hell.
>>88974727All three of those points are also present in many games /bgg/ (rightfully) shills as "dominion but better" like Tanto Cuore.The other genre of deckbuilders, ones with a random market row that gets updated each time something is taken from it, is not for you, but it's not the only genre, nor is Dominion the only rep of it's own genre of static markets. Now tell me what Dominion does better or I will force you to play a different deckbuilder with me.

>>88974727everything you said about dominion is wrong and is actually done by other games.1. there is an app that does setup better than you ever could2. having one strategy is not sandboxy. having a fixed market with the same choice is not sandboxy. 3. doing the same strategy no matter the market is consistent and samey. having to alter your actual strategy is variety. like cards that actually do useful things might as well not exist when your only consideration is can I buy a duchy?4. your thirdly is describing Valley of the Kings. There is no such decision point in Dominion. you either can get a duchy, better than a duchy, or something to get you either in the future. Each round you make that decision, you never pivot to doing something with your cards (entomb) for VPs.You're either retarded or you've never played with an actual Dominion player. The only strategy in Dominion is beat big money no matter how you slice it, and anything else (e.g. playing a lean deck) is so inefficient that only a fucking rube would try it an it will never win against someone who follows the beat big money strat. Almost any other deckbuilder allows for lean, rich, poor decks and to be able to compete by following any number of actually different strategies. Dominion is second only to Catan in being absolute shit with a veneer of popular that caters to the ignorant fresh out of monopoly.

>>88975425I'm aware your weebclones exist, I'm talking about remarks like >>88963997 perpetuated by retards like >>88975802 who unironically get filtered by someone buying silver and gold.And maybe the weebclones are better, I don't know, because ultimately, I'm content with dominion, I think it succeeds at what it aims to be and don't see all that much room for improvement. I don't have much motivation to find a probably at best marginally better version, given that I already don't play dominion all that often, both because of my playgroup's size and personal preference. I think there are more enjoyable games out there, but when given the choice to play a deckbuilder, I would opt for dominion.fwiw I did actually get to pull it out today, because a couple people didn't show up.
>>88976833I liked it. I wish it was a bit heavier but as it is it's a neat mix of RNG and tactics.
>>88976167Are you asking if there is a game of a specific IP that ignores a good portion of that IP?Or did you mean a game that is mechanically similar?
>>88976833It's very good. I probably wouldn't own it but I'm always down to play it.
I finally got to play Stronghold Undead 2e and while it was of the pretty fun "both sides don't think they can ever win as they pull something out of their ass to turn the tide" I wonder a bit about the balance, I handily won as the Necromancer. I know, can't talk balance after just one game but maybe you can help, anon.(1) How is the defender ever going to win? I only ever approximated all the numbers super roughly since there's already a good portion of downtime, yet that little effort was more than enough - whilst the defender, generally a much better player than me, took much more time to deal with what I threw at him appropriately(2) Some spells seemed so very much better than others it's strange. Like, why would I ever want a skull catapult?(3) Consideringthe games largely deterministic nature, I wonder if it tends to get a bit scripted after a few games.(4) Do portal games have some kind of creed about never releasing games with good or even complete manuals?

Why do board gamers allow publishers to publish card games in giant fucking boxes when they could fit in pic related? If there's counters and stuff that's one thing but these assholes put games like Dominion in a giant box
>>88979807what are you, gay?
>>88979807it's because it's a product they're trying to sell and it needs to look like something enticing on the shelf that makes the customer pick it upyou friggin moron

Getting tired of the table being too smallAny recommendations on a not too pricey table?
>>88968618anons here were right about Cribbage (2p) and Euchre (4p). these two traditional games are super easy to learn but are a huge cut above the kiddie crap like Uno and Go Fish. well worth a try.anons gave me a promising list of traditional card games a while back but I haven't had a chance to try the rest yet.For some modern takes on playing-card games, check out the Femtitvå pdf. Jackhammer is super unique.>>88968707Seconding this.
>hype to receive my flickfleet box today>it's just the 'Box of Flicks 1+2' expansions>no base boxes yetreeeeeeee
>>88980986Wtf happenned? I thought the lads were sending our pledges in a single box?Did you order any of the bonus stuff like the behemoth, option 13, bonus gunships, and uprising cruiser ?
>>88980849Without knowing your budget, the dimensions you're looking for or if you need the table for something other than gaming: plastic folding tables, low end poker/casino tables, or Ikea dining tables. If you can spend a little more ($500-1000 range), the low end board game tables work out to be a decent deal, when you hit $1000+ a nice dining/banquet table or a professional casino/poker table are the better options. Alternatively, table toppers (casino or board game) can extend the size of your table but are pricey.
>>88981011mine was always going to be two separate shipments so i'm not surprisedto answer your question tho yes i did order those as well as the crateno regrets
>>88980849hop on craigslist or facebook marketplace and find a used pool/billiards table. the main issue is moving the fucking things, good luck with that part.
>>88979571Hello, my name is Ignacy Trzewiczek, Designer of Stronghold, and Stronghold Undead 2e!Thank you for the comment. I am really impressed by the fact that in your first impression, you already found a balance issue and also found that some mechanisms were not playtested at all by me and my development team.Have you thought about working in the industry full-time? If you have the skill to find that kind of issue in your first game, if by just one play you can prove the whole teams of developers are a joke, you are a golden hire for most of the publishers.

>>88980860Finally someone said fucking cribbage
>>88981876It's not cribbage without the peg board
>>88981948Correct. I think we should promote public games of cribbage to settle disputes like gentlemen.
Dear lonely faggots,Today I'm wearing basketball shorts.Love, me
>>88981876>>88981948>>88982149Love when people bring cribbage up so I can show off my maple board inlaid with blood wood
Where can I find cribbage rules for 4p, 5p and 6p? Do I need a special board for those players counts?
>>88982629Looks wonderful >>88982923There’s actually some variations. https://www.pagat.com/invented/crib_vars.htmlCheck out shotgun cribbage as it supports 4 players… though you might need a second board… or a 4th colored peg.

>>88985514>>88981180To be very fair, Stronhold was a fucking mess and from what I've seen it didn't get better with the KS or 2 ed, Ignacy despises his own game, doesn't answer any questions about it and people are unanimously calling all the stronghold games brokenI do like the games portal puts out but fucking hell they cannot possibly have much playtesting and proofreading.
