It’s really hard to take a pic that includes my face & the game, but I am so so glad my #collectorsedition of #everdell has finally arrived. So excited to check this game out!

I’m going to try a theme here. Given my last post on Tiny Wastelands and @scourgebooks recent post on a game he is developing, let’s take a look at the post-apocalyptic genre. Car Wars was a game I admired as a teenager in the 80s pouring over my friend’s books but never got to play until about three years ago. The game is very fun but mentally taxing in terms of rules. The classic rules strongly emphasize simulation, making for a fairly crunchy system. The included arena and track are somewhat hard to use being a very large piece of folded paper. The many creases make it difficult to play on. But the basic concept is intriguing. Life after the collapse, due to government overreach of natural resources and food shortages from widespread crop disease, turns to bloodsports as a diversion. Car Wars is the result. The game setting evokes Mad Max but with a unique 80s sci-fi flavor (e.g., most cars are electric not i.c.e.). Supposedly, a new edition is in the works that I imagine tamps down the crunchiness, but it’s long overdue originally planned to come out in 2016. Meanwhile Gaslands has become a more popular Mad Max-style game. (Note. Playing pieces for illustration purposes only—not a game in play). Cover Art by David R.

I mentioned earlier in #pot#potluckfightclub/a> that Polo had a twin brother Cassius - now time to take a look at him as portrayed by @metatronis during the Western Plains arc of the #potluckfightclub campaign. A follower of the nature deity Tro'struhen, Cassius had been sent on a quest to cleanse a thicket of trees on the plain, eventually discovering that his goals aligned with Potluck Fightclub's to stop the devious plot of a pair of Slaad brothers. After succeeding in this goal, the half-elven cleric went his own way as guided by his deity, but wished his brother and allies the best of luck in their journey. #dnd5e #dungeonsanddragons #playercharacter #soulcalibur #soulcalibur6 #createacharacter #boardgamegeek #dmlife #rpggroup #tabletopgroup #videogames #ps4 #charactercreation #halfelf #cleric #cassiusblackriver #guestcharacter

After a few tries I found a window design that integrates okay instead of just floating on top

Simple yet challenging. Quick yet rewarding. Abstract yet appealing. Drop It has quickly become my family's favorite filler game to play in between dinner and the time to get the kids ready for bed. It's perfect for my non-gamer spouse as she enjoys games that aren't complex and can be played in less than 10 minutes. What's your favorite family filler game? @kronosgames #dropit #familygamenight #gamingwithkids #nongamerwife #abstractgames #fillergames #dexteritygames #strategygame #funforthewholefamily #boardgaming #boardgamer #boardgamecollection #boardgamegeek #boardgameenthusiast #boardgamecollector #tabletopgames
