Real Life

This post originally appeared on my old blog: PinkMeeple

Real life has been getting in the way with my gaming with Natty lately including work (which has been very busy lately), school (research and papers) and other stuff. Some of that stuff was attending TotalCon this past weekend. I’m not going into detail about it here, but I won’t be returning. No, I didn’t get kicked out or banned but it didn’t live up to my expectations not like Unity Games.

Cuba LibreI’ve started teaching myself the second game in the COIN series, Cuba Libre which is a pretty heavy simulation of the Cuban Revolution from CIA Analyst Volko Ruhnke and Jeff Grossman and published by GMT Games. ….until Natty pushed a bunch of her stuff across the table and wiped out half the tokens, chits and pieces.

I have to start that one over.


Stack o' GamesCheck it out! Here’s my first order ever from Cool Stuff Inc. We have Fantasy Flight’s Eldritch Horror and for solo play, Victory Point Games’ Ottoman Sunsetwhich is part of the States of Siege line of games. These are obviously for me. For Natty (and the family) we’ve got Gamewright’s Sleeping QueensPick-a-Pig and Dungeon Roll from Tasty Minstrel Games.

We played two games of Sleeping Queens which is a rock solid game designed by a six year old no less! We also played a game of Pick-a-Pig. This is also a great game with really great components which can be a problem. You’re saying, “What?” I’ll talk more about it in my review/game play post at a later date. Lastly, Natalya’s really anxious to play Dungeon Roll. Not sure why since she knows nothing about it. But she does think “the box is cool, the dice are super cool and it has lots of tokens” – her words, not mine.

Stay tuned. More come.

Viel Spaß!

Our 10×10 Challenges for 2014

This post originally appeared on my old blog: PinkMeeple

I’ve decided to participate in the 10×10 Challenge for 2014. I thought it’d be a fun thing to do and track over the course of the year. I also thought why not let Natalya have her own 10 List. A couple of games I haven’t even ordered yet, but I will be in February and a few more are already on the way. The question is will I be able to fit in all these games, plus my others, plus Natty’s games, plus my gaming nights? We shall see. I have left Pandemimc off my list for now. I know my son likes to play it but it has lost some of its appeal to me.
