    Any word on if there will be Adventure League? If So, I'll have to remember by characters and logsheets.

    Getting To Know You July

    Well, on Sunday nigjt I unexpectedly watch fireworks in Hartford CT. We were leaving Connecticon and started hearimg the explosions of fireworks. When we got to the parking garage we realised that they were being launched from the river a quarter mile away. So we stopped to watch them and then went home. I quite enjoyed it.

    What Board Game Did You Just Play and How Did You Like It?

    So last weekend I went to Connecticon. While I spend most of the time runnimg aroumd with the family, I did manage to get some games in. I played Space Base, a kind of deck building game. I say kind of, because you start with 12 cards, displayed at all times, and as you buy replacements tje old card hets turned upside down and placed at the top of the board. On your turn you roll 2d6 and then can use the card at that place on the board. So if I rolled a 5 and a six, I can use the action in the 5 and 6 space, or tje action in the 11 space. Those cards you turned upside down and put at the top of the board? You get to use those when other people roll on their turns. Interesting mechanic and fun game. As far as the theme goes, it was a little flat for me. You could have had the same game with any other theme. All that matters is getting buy points and victory points. But I liked having something to do during everyones turn. It was also the CT Festival of Independent Games so I tried a couple out. One was Hibernation, where you play as bears fattening up for the winter. Another deck builder, you buy cards to gather food or het energy to buy more cards. When you have 10 pts of food, you turn them in to earn a hibernation token. There are some nice mechanical effects (take two actions, earn 5 energy, earn 3 energy and reshuffle your discards back into the deck) so what seems to be a simple game actually has some strategic depth to it. And then the family favorite Someone Has Died. My youngest spent a good chunk of the con either playing this game or hanging out at the booth. She event started running demos durimg the last day. It is an improv card game. The premise is that a person has died and players are making their case to the executor of the will for portions of the estate. One player is the executor and the other players are dealt cards pertaining to who they are and thier relationship to the deceased. For example, I was a timetraveler from the future, for whom this was thw first timw that I left my small town in Illinois and I knew her due to being in a fender bender with her. The deseased was the spider lady of Manhattan who fave was covered in spiders. There are also roadblock cards that you can play to force another player to change their story. It feels like a faster version of Fiasco. I liked it enough to preorder it and I might receive it prior to ReaperCon so it may be making an appearance.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I liked it. Not sure about the activation system; if you roll so many failures, your turn ends. But I only played one game so maybe I was just being too daring with my choice of number of dice to roll. I like that it is manufacturer agnostic.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Morning all! Back from my weekend at Connecticon. This was the first con that I took moat of the family to. Much fun was had by all. Awesome Wife enjoyed the dealers hall (and has already started saving for the leatherworking booth for next year). She was Also hypnotised by Art the Hypnotist (a great comedy hypnosis show and self professed Right Bastard). Littlest Daughter spent most of her time at the Festival of Independent Games (Somebody Has Died was the family favorite and my copy may arrive in time for RCon; its an improv card game that reminds me of Fiasco). Daughter Dilvish spend a bunch of time at the cosplay events. And I manged to try a few new games including Space Base, Song of Blades and Heroes amd attend some workshops on molding and casting materials and prop building. Next Con is in 4 days but that one is me going solo.
