I know there is a thread on what games you were giving this year, but I figured we could use a thread for reviewing them. My mom got us Chomp (Gamewrights). There are some scenarios not well-defined in the rules, but the game is fun. No reading required. The smallboys love it. 4yo is REALLY good at it. Clue (I think itâ€™s not challenging enough with the new extra cards, but I like the 2-player variation) is a big hit. I expected my 9yo to love the mystery aspect and my 12yo to like the strategy, and sure enough, thatâ€™s exactly what happened. 12yo begged to play multiple times yesterday. This brought back so many memories from my childhood, even the dimensions of the board. Scarlett even still goes first. We set up Forbidden Desert and started going through the rules; it looks great, but 9yo had a headache and decided he wanted to go to bed, so we shall try it later. My smallboys keep wanting to â€œplayâ€ Pyramix because of the cool board, but we havenâ€™t actually learned the rules yet, so theyâ€™re just tumbling the pieces around. 15yo DD seemed especially enthused at Timeline, and they were all thrilled to see Codenames Pictures. My mom also found us a couple of vintage card games that we havenâ€™t tried yet but which look good. As you play this yearâ€™s games, tell us what you think!
I'm one of those people in the "I have no willpower" thread who wants to play more (board) games and doesn't get around to them as often as I'd like, so I thought I'd start a thread. You can do the board game challenge: http://my-little-poppies.com/board-game-challenge/ Or you can just play games, talk about them here, w/e, the idea is to have fun and play more games. :)
