It actually works really well if you set it to a base movement of 4 spaces.

Don't get to play it all that much though as it's a little tricky for some. My girlfriend is from Taiwan so English isn't her first language, which makes the game simply unfair as some of the clues like you mentioned are puns or spoonerisms etc. My sister has very strong dyslexia which means all the spelling type clues don't work out for her either. You can play in teams to get around this, but I feel they feel a bit left out.
Yeah it's got a pretty stiff learning curve. It does take a few things for granted, that's for sure. Once you get the hang of it though it can be very rewarding.

But yeah, you don't even get direct answers out of it, just clues. So if you're the type who doesn't do clues very well then you are a bit screwed really.

As an example the murder weapon part.. In one of the cases the clues led to Elect (politics question) Try (Rugby question) and City (town sort of question). You end up with Electtrycity.. Obviously pretty easy but sometimes the clues were not so easy so you would have to do some guesswork too.

Oh I forgot about Munchkin. Loved it at Uni when time wasn't a factor, the silly names/items/actions were the focus, and continually hitting your fellow players with extra monsters to stop them winning was a laugh rather than taken personally - but now it does feel somewhat convoluted and too simply a question of math.

Also have Exploding Kittens (NSFW edition), which is daft and quick; shame I always lose!

With the right group the game is a blast, love the fact that most of the clues aren't direct. You actually feel like you've solved something by the end, which is quite impressive really.

Actually one game I forgot to mention (as it's a card game I guess) is Cards Against Humanity, I absolutely love that game. What works best is that once you've gotten over how downright crazy the cards are, it becomes a game of pure strategy. It's all about knowing your friends well and playing your cards to their taste. Like if one loves toilet humour, you save all the poo type ones for their turn etc. Personally I love cards that just fit like a glove, so my friends try to match them up for that. Your choice will never win against me by simply trying to be as foul as possible rofl. It's like a hidden difficulty curve that you don't expect, plus it only gets better when drunk.

My wife to this day will reference, "You should know better than to pick a duck up in a dungeon," when one of us picks up something unpleasant.

Yeah Since having children my gaming time has significantly diminished.

Last Night On Earth:
It's a zombie board game. It plays more or less exactly like the classic zombie movies you love. I used to play weekly with friends. It has lots of expansions. Most are relatively fun.

Ticket to Ride:
It has simple and fun mechanics. It's still good even after many many play-throughs.

Forbidden Desert:
Co-op game. It's fun but seems to either be too easy or completely unforgiving, which makes me thing the balance isn't quite right and too much is based on luck.

Portal: Uncocoperative Cake Game:
I still haven't played this . . . but I'm a big Portal fan so there you go.

Aquire:
It's a real estate investing game that doesn't suck. Imagine that.

Pandemic:
A co-op game where you're trying to stop the spread of a deadly disease before it kills everyone. It's like the board game opposite of Plague, Inc. if you've played that. It's fun but you need 4 people who all like mildly complicated rules.

Guillotine:
It's a fun, quick game with minimal strategy. My wife and I like to play this when we have new friends over. The rules are dead simple and we can talk about other things while we play. I highly recommend this.

Love Letter:
A card counting game with only 11 cards. It's also really simple and fun to play with new friends. You also don't need to think too hard about strategy most of the time, but you do need to count those cards as they go by.

I'm starting to build up a small collection of games to play with the kids (5 and 8yrs)

Munchkin Panic
Sushi Go
Roll for it
Tsuro
Exploding Kittens
Mice and Mystics

There's a few that are on my list to add to the collection, but I also want to build a convertible gaming table/dining table at some point.

By the way: if there are any Android: Netrunner players here interested in regular games, give me a shout. I had a few hands of Netrunner with some mates earlier and it's sort of stoked my interest. I hardly play any more - I barely even know the basic cards - and I want to try and get some regular games going. There are plenty of online options for playing (Octgn, Jinteki.net, Tabletop Simulator, etc) but ideally I'd be looking for 2-4 players regularly (say, once a week, once a fortnight, something like that) - I'm happy to host an instance of Mumble with separate rooms for different games.

Oooo cool thread

Introduced two new peeps to Carcassonne yesterday, an 11yo and his dad at a garden party. Me and my lad came in 1st and 2nd, but the noobs did okay for their first play. I don't think they've played anything even close to comparable before.

On another subject, I've been working on a my own hex based board game for a while (okay the first 'almost a prototype' was started pre-internet! Eeek. Was parked for many a year, and re-started a few months ago and I grab a few minutes on it here and there.

I now have a good set of game pieces in place, two thirds of the rules and I'm ready to enlist my kids for the first play tests when I get the chance

As well as 2D version, I've been designing and printing a 3D version. No it doesn't play like Catan. It's basically an end of the world simulator



And it has a working title of 'Apocalypse'

I'd be so down for testing your game! looks awesome. I like games with hexes. Is there any worker placement elements? I bloody love worker placement games.

I bought another game this week, which I've been trying to find for ages but it's out of printer (thoguh there is a new print happening with mayfair at the mo and is out end of June) - Glass Road, but Uwe Rosenburg. Have played it 3 times in the last week and it's definitely now my favourite game.

Now just need to find a copy of Fields of Arle, and be brave enough to stump up 90 quid for his newest game "A Feast for Odin" and then I think I will have all of his games.

Played a game called Mice and Mystics last night which was a lot of fun, it's a dungeon crawler with mice. better than it sounds! but fits the very standard dungeon crawler mold, easy fighting, hard to actually beat the dungeons though due to the different objective tracks, some of which are only there to mess you up.

Yeah, I meant to reply to say the same; I'd be happy to play-test with a few friends . If you have PDFs (or similar) of the pieces & manual it would be easy to distribute to a select few for play-testing.

BTW, I'm not sure whether you've already designed something similar, but I found some neat Settlers hexes on Thingiverse which have sockets on the bottom for small magnets. Simple idea but would make things a lot easier when laying out the board! https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1238980 (Also found similar hex holders for Eclipse, which I haven't got around to printing yet: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:700356)

just started to get into board games the gf suffers from agoraphobia so I'm trying to find things for us to do indoors. We've got khet and I'm trying to get hold of a copy of gloom but I've basically been watching the tabletop games series on youtube by wil wheaton but all his games seem to be for more than 2 players so any suggestions for 2 player games would be appreciated as up until now my idea of a 2 player game was backgammon or go.

There's a few card games that work perfectly fine with 2 players, I've got Exploding kittens, sushi Go and Roll for it! and all are playable with only 2 players, there are probably many more but those are games that I've actually got.

It might be worth looking at something like Ticket to Ride and the Dark Souls board game as well. My GF isn't really 'into' board games although I'm beginning to turn her around but the card games are really easy to pick up and play and can become quite competitive!

games I like playing 2 player:

alchemist
patchwork (is 2 player game)
Jaipur (is 2 player game)
citadels - I think is most fun as a 2 player game
7 wonders - the normal game 2 player is great, but there is also a 2 player game called "7 wonders duel"
