Sophie has been hosting game nights on Tuesdays for many months now. We usually meet around 7pm, eat take-out for a quick dinner, and then begin playing a board game via Russ. Russ is Sophie’s ex-coworker from DI, and he has a million board games (an addict! from which we benefit). We’ve mostly been learning the rules of new games each week, and not often repeating, but yesterday I requested we play Tzolk’in! We played it just once about 2 months ago, and I had initially rated it a 7. This time, I was able to actually make a plan for the long-term goals and win!! I liked it a lot, and upped my rating to an 8. Hehe.
After Tzolk’in, we played Bang! dice, which I really disliked, as I expected. I don’t like betrayal type games, and I don’t like co-op, discussing motives and games who’s major mechanism is the act of swaying others from making their most logical decisions. No! I’ll have none of it. More Tzolk’in please!
