I was excited that both Tiny Epic Galaxies
and the Baldur's Gate xpac for Dungeon Mayhem showed up last night, as Amazon was showing them for delivery on Tuesday. All three of my kids were gathered around the table this morning, slinging cards at each other, and shouting "GO FOR THE EYES, BOO!" It was pretty awesome.
Really impressed with how much game TEG packs into such a small package. The level of strategy is a bit much for the Wonder Twins 6.11 (although they grasp the basic concepts just fine), but Little B 11.3 absolutely loves
it. We played three games this morning, with her winning all three. Definitely a thumbs up from the Skinypupy household.
I've held off on starting the Hero Realms
campaign, as all three kids have been playing multiple games against each other every day. Since the campaign has you customizing the character decks, that would throw a wrench into their games. Besides, I'd much rather play the campaign solo, so I'll wait until some of their initial enthusiasm wears down before jumping into that. My only complaint is that the cards feel quite cheap. We've had three of them split and start peeling apart already. Pretty easy to fix with some scotch tape, but still kinda disappointing.
Since I now have my dedicated gaming space back, I've been trying to jump back into my Gloomhaven
campaign...but am just not feeling it at all. I've set it up three times now, and sort of halfheartedly started a couple campaign, but haven't finished either. I probably just need to bust open a couple new characters and mix in some variety. Playing these same two for 20+ hours has gotten a bit stale.
