Christmas gaming

Post by nutter45 »

How’s people’s gaming shaping up this Christmas?

We’ve got Karuba, Magic Maze and Cartagena under the tree. Looking forward to all 3.

Plus Carcassonne, Isle of Skye, Codenames, Incan Gold, Key to the City:London and Sushi Go Party to keep the family all entertained in meantime, although my youngest is schooling the grandparents at chess currently!

My parents have Codenames : Duel to look forward to. Other than that, I don't think any new games are definitely under the tree.

If my Amazon wishlist has been looked at, I'm praying for Great Western Trail!

I got Century Spice Road, CV and Sherlock Consulting Detective Thames murders for Christmas.

Going to a party tonight with none gamer's, I plan to try out Werewords and a few other social deduction games.

I tend to buy games for myself to make sure :dorky:

Karuba is a real hit with my youngest, great game. Cartagena is superb too, delightfully simple and elegant. We’re going to give Magic Maze a whirl today.

My family have played virtually nothing but codenames!

My clue was was Rogers. They correctly picked ‘Buck’ because.... wait for it..... it’s a bit of a leap

Buck is a male rabbit..... Roger(s) Rabbit!

Magic Maze is utterly brilliant, the work of a genius!
