I never managed to find some time to continue on the slow month post, so here I am. Doing a short recap of the last 30 days of board gamding, using Instagram images and text.
The week after I had been skiing I ordered two new board games that I’ve had never heard about, but seen on-line. Regatta and Hanabi.
That’s the boxes. Regatta is as the name implies about sailing. Pretty easy set up. You put up four buoys in a square, where two of them mark the starting line, and you have to sail around the two others. To move the boats you use cards that you play from your hand, and move the the length of the card. So pretty easy. I will hopefully write more about it when I try it more thoroughly, as I’ve only played it with my girlfriend ones.
It’s pretty cute. Hanabi on the other hard is also a card game, but here you collaborate with the other players to make the most wonderful firework! Haven’t tried it yet, but I think it can be some easy fun.
So, I’ve been bad a bloging lately, and I’m sorry. It’s just been so busy at school and in my little spare-time. As I’m taking two philosophy courses, there is plenty to read every week. I’m also playing boardgames every Thursday and HeroClix on Tuesdays. Not sure if I’m going to do that every week, we’ll see.
In other news, Ive bought Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for my 360. Not really a good game, guess I’m to old to play it. If you want to play a good game, you should check out Dead Rising 2 prologue, Case Zero. That’s one awesome XBLA game! Sadly I don’t have that much to play, I’ve even borrowed Heavy Rain to see if it’s really that good from a friend. Maybe I’ll have some time to waste this weekend?
I’ve bought some new boardgames, Seaside, which is and awesome expansion for Dominion. Next one I’m getting is the new Prosperity. Hopefully this month!
I think that’s all I’ve got to say now. Hopefully I’ll blog a little bit this weekend. At least after the awesome party this Sunday. Time of the day will be revealed tomorrow! Good night!
The last two Thursday I’ve been visiting my local fantasy store Outland to play boardgames with known and unknown people. Today was Thursday. So I’ve been playing boardgames from around half past three to half past eight. It’s been mostly Magic, but I tried three new fun games, one was about removing wood bricks from a balancing plate, second was Guillotine, and third was about taking a stick before the one you challenged (plus something more that I won’t explain). Other then that I haven’t done much, I was at work. I also played with soft swords today, check out the awesome pictures over at my friend Christinas blog.
I’ve also added some more hipster photos to my Flickr page, and a new stencil I found right where I live.
Here is also an update about my vinyl projects. I’ve also started another not vinyl project, but more about that on Saturday. There is also a picture of my Lego Series 1 collection. I soon have all of them! Plus two pictures of a fun hamburger I made.
I don’t think I will have time to write a real update before sometime next week, since I’m pretty busy starting up at school and I’m working this weekend. I will try to come with some minor updates about how my life is going. So tonight I have two personal updates and two game related updates!
The personal first. I’m done with the planing and building of the N+ levels. Just need to make them look better and put enough gold in them so you can make it before the time runs out. I’ll post some images when I’m done. They look really good now, and I’m pretty proud of them!
In other game related personal news, I’ve finally bought me some board games to have in my apartments. Bought three different! Ingenious, Ubongo and Candamir. As I’ve only had tried the first one, I was curios on how fun the others would be. Played them all tonight with a friend tonight and it was fun. I think they all will be a lot more fun when we are more people that play. Less isn’t always more. So tomorrow when I’m having a boardgame evening, I’ll see. Also check some pictures after the jump. Not mine, but you can at least see how they look like.
The game related news I was talking about, is that Mirrors Edge DLC is hitting XBL 29 January. The day I’m going to visit my brother and go skiing with him and my father. So guess I won’t get to try it before I get back Sunday. Guess that’s no problem. Also EA Sport is teaming up with Etnies to make Skate 2 sneakers. They looks ok. Not anything flashy. Check out Kotaku for the article and some images.
