Took collection of some new games when I met Edw at the Starbucks presscon of the Designer Game Cafe launch. Let’s see what are in my goodies bag:
Samurai. Another Knizia classic that scales well for 2-4 players. Using his unique scoring system that forces you to balance your play, this is a very fast mini brain-burner that can play as a filler in between the heavier games!
Clash of Kings. An expansion to A Game of Throne, now you can play AGOT 6-player. With other additions like the Ports of Westeros, Siege Engines, Special House Cards and even a variant on the Cards of Westeros that eliminates “luck”. A must-have for those who love AGOT!
Eastern Front. Ah.. with the Pacific Theatre expansion just around the corner, it’s high time I pick up this awesome expansion to the Memoir 44 game. Now you can command the Russian armies…. play on desert terrain, blwo-up bridges and try your luck defusing landmines! Makes a fun game even better!
Check my gaming reports over the next few days to see how these games play. Now, let me get back to tearing those shrinkwraps… aiieeeee……
