I'm intrigued by Netrunner but reluctant to get it because I know i'll have a hard time trying to explain and play it with my non-gamer friends.

I know a few people who are very much into their netrunner.

It's a 2-player only CCG, like Magic The Gathering. It requires a bit of an investment, as the idea is that people build up decks and shape them into the way they want to play them.

Works well if you have a group of friends who want to play it regularly, as you can then buy it at the same rate and make sure you're on an even playing field.

Arrived today (Sheriff of Nottingham)! Looks beautiful, wasn't expecting it to be so substantial for some reason.

Sure we will like it - last recommendation from you that I followed was Love Letter and we all love that.

Will hopefully get to try it this weekend as my brother and sister-in-law are coming to stay. Looking forward to it, thanks.

Standard. Seems they've added starts to show how many of each card is in the pack... I don't remember them being on yours...

There's a number of stars on the cards themselves as another way of remembering how many there are.

Yes, that's what I was saying. I don't remember them being on the edition I played previously, but may just not have been pointed out (or remembered!)



Played a round with parents last night and went down a treat. Cracking little game

Ah, stars. I've not noticed them either (hence why I didn't register what your typo meant). Will have to check my set!

Personally prefer Coup to love letter (very similar games but in coup you can bluff, tried it with my friend, he doesn't like lying so hence couldn't play the game, kept saying to me 'but I can't win with this hand', to which I'd reply 'That's when you bluff and pretend you have a better hand', but lo when he went and got a similarly bad hand again he'd lose and then we'd have the same conversation).

Lost Cities is a great game, my favourite two player game.

Yeah, you guys must have a different version to me as the stars are not on the cards in my set.

This didn't happen due to us getting whacked with a snowstorm.

Hopefully next weekend!

Had three games of munchkin over the weekend.

We all enjoyed it, especially my eleven year old boy. Some really funny cards in there, and as he loves getting one over on me, it's a perfect game in this respect .

We also got a round of Betrayal in. A really good haunt scenario and a particularly tense finish. Really like it.

Played a stripped down game of Formula D with my 5 yr old and father in law this morning. Good fun.

Just been bitten by the bug and had a gaming evening with some friends from work, who have been playing regularly for months and invited me.

Managed to play (be introduced too.)

!. Fluxx
2. Love Letters
3. Zombie Dice
4. Go Home Romans
5. Epic Spell Wars of Battle Wizards.

Got to say enjoyed all the games played, especially Love Letters and Epic Spell. Really enjoyed the evening and getting into these games.

So Pandemic has arrived! I've had a little watch of a few how to play videos. I've also set it all up so i can work out what I'm doing.

My mrs works in a lab and she's nabbed some petri dishes to pop the cubes in.

We're going to have our first run through tonight...


AND I now have Carcassone, Splendor, Ticket to Ride:Europe, Dominion and Pandemic as my little collection. Most of my family think I have a serious problem.

You've got a really good selection of games there

Wait til you've got 50 of the bloody things cluttering up the bookshelves and drawers

Played 4-player Shadows over Camelot last night with my parents. It was their first time playing it, but what a cracking game it was.

My mum was the traitor, but I just couldn't work out whether she was
making mistakes or was being generally traitorous! Kept us guessing to the very last turn, and the loyalists ended up losing on a 6v6 tie!

My dad said it was the best game he's ever played, and mum said it was the most stressed she's ever been. High praise

Cheers dude & I can imagine! I really need a special wardrobe for them.


How many of you guys use card sleeves for your cards? I don't know if I like the idea of it...
