Yeah, seems like this blog is now a once a month instead of the once a week I was hoping for.
So, to the very few readers left reading this, I apologize . . . and my two main excuses are;
1) My dad was in hospital for almost a month - he is recovering now after heart surgery.
2) We have a new puppy - his name is Watson.
Games - yes, wonderful games. I’m sure that in the past month I’ve purchased one or two.
So, I’ll talk about one of them.
Morels . . .
No, really. It’s a two player game all about collecting, selling, cooking and eating . . . mushrooms.
No, not those mushrooms either . . . and I don’t think the designer was eating mushrooms when he thought of this game . . . but I can’t be sure.
Anyhow, it’s a two player card game that lasts about half an hour, has some hard to explain mechanics but is pretty tactical and fun.
And not for everybody.
My wife and I like it pretty well, though we weren’t blown away by it.
It’s a good game if you have a half hour to wile away.
Tennis - has been happening on and off with my dad thing, and I’ve been playing okay. And by okay, I mean no injuries - which I guess is better than okay, really.
And this is the first weekend I have a free day off - and yes, I’m off to a friend’s house to game - what else would I be doing?
I’m eager to play Legendary Alien Encounters, now that I have all the cards I was missing.
I may drag along BattleLore 2nd Edition too - just in case.
Well, that’s about it for now . . .
Until the next Sunday . . . sometime down the road . . .
