Monday game night: playing Yamatai against my sister :)

It's an interesting take on area control games, where you have to place ships around islands to build on them, and collect specialists who add points to your buildings if they meet certain conditions - combos encouraged :p

Overall, a mixed reaction from me though - it's a fun puzzle, but I feel there's too much that can change between your turns, meaning that you can't plan ahead massively :/

(Debating doing longer reviews - thoughts?)

@rettaroo Proud to be your 69th follow :)

(that's the sex number!)

Reposting this outside of the recommendation thread, because seriously these are the cutest frickin' cards in any game ever

Lookit the bunny! :D

UK Peeps - The Works is currently selling a ton of board games from decent publishers at an absolute steal!

The following thread will be a series of recommendations of games they have

I'm not getting paid for this, I just want to spread the board game love with people :)

Right then - I'm sat under a blanket with a cup of tea and my crochet, who wants their arse kicked on ? 😈​

(I'm willing to play anything, and can teach most games on there too!)

Holy crap Scythe is on for £5.50, I am so tempted - does anyone else know the game and want to play? I am happy to teach as well :D

Also, does anyone know if every player needs a copy of a game on TTSim, or if one person has it can others join (kind of like in real life)?

Setting up Tabletop Simulator again after some years to see what's the what - Mastodon Games Night needs to become a thing :D

Right, a little bit of an for me on here - hi! :)

I'm Jae (they/them), and I'm a massive game geek :p I have been playing board games as a hobby for about eight years now, and love anything mid- to heavy-weight, legacy games and worker placements :)

My main is @Jae but this is primarily here to meet other board gamers - I'm on , and if you want to hit me up, I want more friends :)
