For the past few weeks, I've been playing Cuba Libre against Rodney Smith @watchitplayed and I just wanted to make an appreciation post/thread about two things that have made this one of my favorite tabletop gaming experiences. #boardgames #wargaming
@gpage I usually just solo the COIN games. I've tried Vassal multiplayer, but I think why I enjoyed this particular experience was the conversational aspect of talking through your moves. Also, we would stop and just talk about the board state. I'm not a competitive person, so it's not just about "playing" the game. I think I really strive off of the personal interactions. Video messaging can be clunky, but I found the experience very rewarding.
We are an inclusive Mastodon community for everything tabletop (and more).
@HenriWhitehead totally makes sense. have you tried any other volumes in the series? I know that in Gandhi and onward the solo modes were redone (and FitL got an update there). I used to solo FitL years ago and found the experience to be entertaining. I admit, I didn't have a game table at the time so it was primarily done over Vassal so I could save it and not occupy the dinner table for days on end...
