New month, and plenty more new games! I think I’m always a little surprised at how many new things I play in any given month, but it’s always fun seeing what gets to the table! I’m hoping that soon we’ll be able to start attending FLGS play events and other conventions again, I really miss them because I always got to play so many new games! Anyone else excited to get back to those?

Reaction Key:
❤️ – Loved It/Always Love It/Favorite
😄 – Liked It/Will Likely Play Again
🤷🏻‍♀️ – Okay/Take It or Leave It/Could Play Again
👎🏻 – Didn’t Like/Would Not Play Again

😄 Unlock!: Lost in the Time Warp – Such a good one! This one was engaging, smooth, and a lot of fun!
👎🏻 Deckscape Crew vs Crew: The Pirate’s Island – I was super disappointed by this one, mostly due to the reward system. You can see a full review here.
😄 Unlock!: Around the World in 80 Minutes
😄 Lockup: Breakout – Got an early preview of the expansion that’s on Kickstarter! Check out the preview!
😄 Marvel United – I’m not huge on co-ops, but I love Marvel, and this is cute!
🤷🏻‍♀️ Orbital Velocity – I was hoping for a little bit more, it’s mostly randomness. But keep an eye out for a full review next month!
🤷🏻‍♀️/👎🏻 Obscurio – Previously I had only demoed this, so the full game is technically new. It was super disappointing. The Grimoire is supposed to be your guide, but there’s so much out of their control that it’s so hard. Seems like an easy win for the traitor.
🤷🏻‍♀️ Carson City: The Card Game
🤷🏻‍♀️ Hail Hydra – Wasn’t as big on this as I wanted to be. The powers seem so hard to time right, and letting Hydra damage the city so much once they reveal themselves (why wouldn’t they in the final round after the vote?) just seems weird
😄 Tapestry: Plans and Ploys
😄 Jamaica: The Crew
🤷🏻‍♀️/😄 Fleet: The Dice Game – Dicey Waters – I don’t like having to give up a die face to check off one of the buildings on the expansion sheet, there is opportunity for decent points there, so it’s a toss up.
😄 Fallout Shelter: The Board Game
🤷🏻‍♀️/👎🏻 Sonora – Pretty disappointed with this, definitely wanted to like it more.
😄 Valletta
😄 Sheepy Time
🤷🏻‍♀️/👎🏻 Machi Koro Legacy – I had my hopes up a bit, but we found a broken strategy that basically made the game feel defeatist if you tried anything else.
👎🏻 Masquerade
🤷🏻‍♀️ Carpe Diem
🤷🏻‍♀️ Floor Plan
😄 Draftosaurus
😄 Captive – Graphic Novel Adventure
🤷🏻‍♀️ Room 25
