So Sexy Nerd and I decided we wanted something to do last night, but it was his weekend on call for work. Enters game night! We both love tabletop games, it was one of the things that brought us together to begin with, it was how we first met!
So last night we decided to try a brand new game we got and an ol' faithful we have played many times. Five Tribes and Elder Sign. Five Tribes is a Mancala type game where you bid to move and then drop pieces and try to take over the most squares while using Djinns to help you gain resources and assassinate different pieces on the board. It was so much fun. The components are absolutely fabulous and the insert (which is a huge thing) holds everything perfectly (no spilling). Everything looks great and all the different parts of the game go well together.
So Sexy Nerd won. He was excited, but as you can see it was a very close game (and he cheated a bit!).
The next game we played is one of my favorites. Elder Sign is a dice rolling gamed based in the Cthulhu World! You are fighting the old gods to make everything right in the world. This is a cooperation game so you are working together with the other players instead of against each other. I am slightly partial to co op games just because I like how they also all the players to interact and plan future moves instead of everyone being in their own little world trying to win.
This was not a good night for the world. We lost, and quite quickly I might add. Hey it happens! You can't beat the old gods every time!
Ok lovelies, what are your favorite games?
