More #MarvelChampionsLCG diaries: Battled standard Klaw and won as Black Panther running the leadership aspect! (I had previously lost while running Black Panther protection.)
A bonus: My partner joined me, easily cottoned on to the rules, and we ended up enjoying the scenario together!
Second solo play of #MarvelChampionsLCG under my belt, this time as Black Panther against Rhino. (I've been catching up on the groundbreaking Coates/Stelfreeze run of Black Panther and can't get enough!)
The game really does continue to impress me. It's a fun story-puzzle at exactly the right pace.
Just played a first game of #MarvelChampionsLCG! It's fun, thematic, and satiating for a card game aficionado.
For those of you who use foam to transport your various minis, might I suggest never ordering anything from Battlefoam again? they can take their precious historical accuracy and shove it.
Did a solo test of Unmatched: Battle of Legends Vol. 1 and REALLY enjoyed it! I think it's going to be a long-term favorite and I can't wait to introduce people to it.
It's like an excellent croissant—the careful layering makes it so satisfying and yet impossibly airy. They distributed the design weight so, so well.
I made a tool for KeyForge that translates decklists!
If your playing KeyForge with players who prefer a different language for the game than you (or at international tournments, here is a little tool I made that can help you reading each others decklists:
Just paste a master vault link and press the button to generate a 7 language printout!
Played some #KeyForge Age of Ascension last night against another dad with young kids. I'm happy to report that it continues to provide reliably interesting card game challenges while asking very little of the players apart from sitting down to play.
We both have other games we find more interesting (Netrunner, Warmachine, Star Wars: Destiny, among others) but it's #KeyForge that hits the table.
Hello friends! I'm putting a list of miniatures #wargaming players/modellers to follow. I'd love to keep up to date with people's ongoing modelling/scenery/gaming projects etc. Any suggestions of people to follow? Personally I play many things across many genres including #StarWars:Legion, #Necromunda, #ChainOfCommand, #WhatATanker, #AdeptusTitanicus, #AoSSkirmish, #BloodBowl, #BlackPowder, #HailCaesar and #Swordpoint. Here's a recent pic for inspiration! 😃
New rules for strategy/card game design: If the game has drafting/building, then the game should play itself (Dota Auto Chess). If the game is truly in the play, handle the drafting/building for the player (#KeyForge).
Thoughts on #Keyforge
Don't roll in expecting #MTG. It'll throw off your learning curve. That being said. For paper keyforge, check and see if your LGS has an open starter kit to try out.
I found even playing multiple matches on the same decks of roughly the same strength, the matches played out in varying ways and were entertaining.
Then if you (and perhaps your friend) enjoy it, go for a minimum 2 decks to keep it fresh for a while.
You can play for free online too

KeyForge game recap
In a very close #KeyForge game, the Horseman deck Oathkeeper falls to The Nawab.
I was lucky enough to open a Horseman deck and was excited to see if the hype was warranted. No hot take here: They are flavorful and fun to play, but I don't think they're busted.
I played more introductory #KeyForge with family members around my age that avidly play mainstream board games, and the game was received warmly.
I doubt there's a real appetite for the game (especially against other entertainments that host more participants at a time), but they'll be able to hold their own if the kids around ask to play.
