I've played 3 games of 7 Wonders Duel now with my son and we absolutely love it.

It's pretty mean but what a beautifully balanced and varied game it is. Each has played out differently so far and there's no sign of a go to strategy, you've got to play it as you see it each time.

Bought Watson & Holmes after the Shut Up & Sit Down review of it. Not played it yet, but it looks fantastic.

Played Escape The Curse of the Temple over the past few days whilst off work. The soundtracks are good and add to the atmosphere. The game can be a frantic with everyone rolling 5 dice at the same time and trying to figure out how you should work together is fun. The basic game game seems to be fairly simple but I managed to get the Big Box edition and the expansions look like they will be fun and quite challenging.

I have the big box too (after ordinary having the base game and upgrading). Not found opportunity to play it yet, but enjoyed the base and was left wanting more so made sense!

You will enjoy it I'm sure! Have just played some of the modules and the rule which says any dice falling off the table are lost for good had me at my wits end

I kicked arse at Terra Mystica last night, winning by one point! I was leading most of the game but then the end game scoring caused everyone to catch up, but I pulled a three pointer out of the bag and limped back into first place

Picked up Pandemic Iberia at the UK Games Expo. Love the additional actions and feel to the game and has re-energised Pandemic for me.

Kingdomino. Our new favourite light family game. The kids absolutely love it.

I've been playing that too, pretty fun for everyone. Annoyingly on a cottage holiday in Devon and the weather has been amazing and the kids have been a pain at going to bed, so no games yet... So far

I've recently purchased Takenoko and love this game. It can be so simple to play yet it can become really tactical.

I've also recently purchased Colt Express which is such a fun and quick game. Great for a party but if played seriously, needs a lot of concentration.

I'm new to the hobby and have recently started a light Board game night every so often with a small family group.
We've played trivia games and balderdash, Cranium etc and while we had fun were sort of bored of those.

As none of us are serious gamer's, I looked at some Party games that I think will be fun and will also be different to what we have normally played.

I've picked up Spyfall, One night ultimate Werewolf, Deception Murder in Hong Kong, The resistance and Cash and Guns. I think that out of those we should find something we like. I've watched play through's so I can pick up on trying to keep the flow of the games working.

I will be playing next weekend so I will update how that goes.

Those are all great games - sure you'll enjoy them. They do share mechanics amongst them (mostly hidden role stuff) so playing all on the same day might feel a little 'samey', but they are all great fun


@michelle I wasn't a fan of Colt Express... so wanted to enjoy it, i bought the playmat, planned pimping it, but it just fell flat. I seem to be in the minority here tho so hope you enjoy!

I agree about the hidden role stuff and I might have gone a bit overboard with that mechanic, but as you say they do look really fun and at least they are fairly short if a particular one doesn't work.

I've also just bought Mysterium which was mainly to play with my immediate family as I wasn't sure it would work so well with the group.

Mysterium is fantastic. I can't quite imagine a group it wouldn't go down well with.

I recently got Flamme Rouge and got to try it this week-end.

It's really simple to learn, plays quickly (which means it leaves you wanting more and you end up playing a second game) and quite a bit of pretend cycling and real hand / resource management fun.



Looking forward to playing some more soon.

My 15 year old son and I also got our behinds handed to us in Arkham Horrow: the card game. Let's just say the story didn't end well for anyone involved or innocent bystanders.

So we're planning to go back in, possibly with different investigators. Good fun too.

Funnily enough I played mysterium with my family recently (my first game too). I loved it, they seemed to enjoy it, but said it was the weakest of my games they've played!
So doesn't work for everyone!!
