Welcome Back, Gamers! Another month is in the books, and wow, this year is going by so quickly. In early November I got a bunch of new games played thanks to a great Extra Life event as my favorite Friendly Local Game Store! And of course, a few other newbies here and there too. Have you enjoyed any of these in particularly? Think I’m wrong in my reaction? Let me know! As always, happy gaming~
❤️ – 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
🤷🏻♀️ Beyond the Sun – I liked uncovering the events and branching the technologies, but that’s about it
🤷🏻♀️ Shiba Inu House – It was so difficult for me to differentiate the cards in this, which made it not so enjoyable
🤷🏻♀️ Rush M.D. – It’s an okay speed game, but I prefer Kitchen Rush
🤷🏻♀️ Khora: Rise of an Empire – Quite attractive, but gameplay was a little bland and repetitive
🤷🏻♀️ Dice Miner
🤷🏻♀️ Monster Slaughter
🤷🏻♀️ Cubitos – I wanted to like this more, but it was just kind of boring to me, unfortunately
😄 Master Word
👎🏻 Juicy Fruit
😄 Similo: History – This was neat! We liked this a lot so we decided to pick up the Spooky and the Fable decks (which we also played this month, and they’re all great!)
🤷🏻♀️ Wild Space
😄 Project L
🤷🏻♀️ The Little Prince: Rising to the Stars
😄 The Kringle Caper – This one is part of a series of small box (18-card) escape rooms called Holiday Hijinks, and I can’t wait to play them all!!
😄 Thumbs Up – We just played a demo version of this, but it was cute!
👎🏻 Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: A Board Game of English Magic
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia – Played both sides of the board this month (this was also the last map pack we didn’t have!) Team Asia was definitely too stressful for me… but overall they were both decent. TTR in general just isn’t my favorite
😄 Evolution: Climate mobile – Did a review for this one this month! I was never huge on the Evolution board games, but this app is addictive! I’ve really been enjoying it.
🤷🏻♀️ Tzolk’in: The Mayan Calendar – Tribes & Prophecies
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Panorama – Definitely going to need a few more plays of this, at various player counts, to decide how I feel about it. But it sure is pretty! Review coming soon!
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Tiger Stripes – Another one with a review coming soon! Very cute little game for kids/families
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Legendary: Annihilation – I was iffier on this expansion than most, but it was alright
😄 Draftosaurus: Marina – This game & it’s expansions are just so good
👎🏻 WCW Nitro Trading Card Game
🤷🏻♀️ WWE Legends Royal Rumble Card Game
😄 Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeon Scrawlers – Heroes of Undermountain – This title is way too long, but this game is neat and unique!
😄 The Independence Incident – This is another 18-card escape room from the Holiday Hijinks series that I was able to grab and sneak in a play of right at the end of the month. It was also awesome like the Christmas one I played. Hoping to get the Halloween one soon!
❤️ MicroMacro: Crime City – Full House – Loving the new box, as expected ^__^
