Which deckbuilding games have you enjoyed? 🃏
Hands in the Sea 🌊 is a 2 player game based on the First Punic War between the Romans and Carthaginians fighting for control of Sicily.
This is a deckbuilding and area control war ⚔️ game. Each turn you have two actions and your deck is made up of the cities you already control. You can settle new locations using location cards of the cities you already inhabit. Fortifying 🏰 locations increases defence and makes it harder for your opponent to attack key areas.
Naval battles are also present and the Carthaginians start with the stronger fleet allowing them to more easily pillage Roman settlements. To balance this benefit the Romans are stronger on land.
Wars employ a tug of war style mechanic and can span over several turns which is enjoyable and adds tension to card draws.
I haven’t described all the actions but the cards are multifaceted and you need to make decisions on which actions to use. This is the beauty of the game, do you keep cities in hand so you are able to expand? or do you need them to defend incoming attacks?
New cards can be purchased at any time strengthening your turns and available choices.
There are many paths 🛤️ to victory for example getting 25 victory points clear of the opponent or sacking their capital city or either player has settled every city in Sciliy or simply having more VP at the end of the game.
After each turn an event is drawn and these can be catastrophic 🤬 and usually one player is chosen to suffer the wrath based on a die roll. Not too sure I like these as they are very harsh and cannot easily be offset.
At first I was overwhelmed with the rules but my friend managed to teach me in under an hour and I felt comfortable very quickly.
This game is fantastic and makes you feel powerful and you are always adding to your deck and creating new opportunities. If you like deckbuilding games and war games this is one to look out for. .
Tammany Hall 2007
In Tammany Hall you are an aspiring politician between 1850-1870 in Manhattan fighting for influence in the lower wards by any means necessary. Take on one of five roles to bring your party to dominance and claim political victory in what was a very influential time in American history. Castle Garden welcomed more than 8 million immigrants from Ireland, England, Germany, Italy among others into Manhattan between 1855-1890. It is now your job to find them a ward to call home and curry favor in hopes that your party will rise to claim dominance in a time of historical uncertainty. This game is an area control game at its core with a very low rules overhead. The complexity in this game comes from the decisions the other political heads sitting at the table with you make in their quest to wrestle power from everyone else over the next 4 terms. If you find yourself the Mayor for any of the 4 terms you will gain victory points while others will not. Those Victory points will come at a cost, it will be the Mayor's job to determine each opponents role for the coming term each with asymmetrical abilities that will be used to try to supplant you as leader and claim victory for their own.
I have yet to play this but I am very excited to. This game is rife with theme in a time that has such historical weight. Picture Gangs if New York the board game. From what I have learned of this game it is not for the faint of heart. There will be back stabbing and broken alliances. It wouldn't be a political game otherwise now would it.

A six player game of Scythe and it was a real car crash of a game. In the end 5 people scored between 20 and 30 with the winner scoring 51. The expansion factions weren't very interesting and overall I didn't have much fun this game. It'll be a while before I play this again I think.

#SolaFide von #Spielworxx ließ uns in der Erstpartie ratlos stehen. Nach 65‘ entschieden wir uns für ein Unentschieden. Im letzten Gebiet fühlte es sich endlos an & es war klar, hier wartet man bis irgendwer mehr Glück beim Kartenziehen hat. Hoffentlich ist es mit dem Deckbau besser als das Einstiegsspiel.
Nr.1 🔥🔥🔥🔥 (4.0)
Dicetopia ist auf unserem Tisch ein Dauerbrenner!⠀
Wenn ein Satz auf Dicetopia zutrifft, dann klein aber oho! In der doch recht kleinen Schachtel erwartet einen tolle Komponenten, ein klasse Gameplay, viel Varianz und jede Menge Spaß!⠀
In Dicetopia setzen wir unsere 7 Agenten geschickt in den 6 Bezirken dieser futuristischen Stadt ein, nutzen deren unterschiedliche Aktionen und erhalten Würfel. Am Ende gewinnt der Spieler, der sich die Aktionen und Würfelaugen am besten zum Vorteil gemacht hat und dadurch die meisten Siegpunkte erspielt. ⠀
Besonders gut gefällt uns die große Varianz an Fraktionen und Missionen, die jede Partie anders gestalten. Hinzu kommt eine tolle Kombination aus Workerplacement und Area Control. ⠀
Dicetopia ist ein klasse Filler-Game, welches ich Allen nur ans Herz legen kann. ⠀
Taught my 8yo a simple #areacontrol#boardgame called Coin Age then #AdventureTime #LoveLetter. Both were very well received. I need to remember that small games are less intimidating for kids.

Finally got the chance to play some IRL games of Inis instead of on Tabletop Simulator. Hands down my favorite of the area control drafting games of the last decade. Has a very deterministic design rather than one that relies on incremental approach. You make a new plan every round and odds are after the first two-three you'll be going for the victory every round. May the best laid plan win! Also a rarity in the genre as this loses zero potency regardless of player count. And that artwork!

Watergate is a new game from @capstone_games. A bit of hand management to gain informers and use evidence on the reporter side while Nixon is trying to gain control 5 times and not resign. Difficult game to master! #watergate#bgg#allthegames#capstonegames#cards#nixon

Got to try out Venitia this evening. It's a relatively obscure game by the team that did War of the Ring, and it shares some of the DNA in the form of cards that can significantly swing the game state if not used for voting power.
Otherwise, it's a pretty different beast. You are always drafting a die from a common pool, of one of three colors. Two of them straight up let you place cubes in regions for area majority scoring. The third works similarly, but the values (rather than telling you how many cubes to place) will have you drawing the depicted number of tokens from a bag. Most tokens will let you "attack" regions, displacing others'. But they will often lead to some regions being stripped of cubes from *all* players, and push the game towards one of the three scoring phases.
I'm not sure I love it. But that's mostly due to the fact that it's a bit fiddly, mechanically. There's no score track, so you'll have to add up points from various things on a pad of paper...it's a bit weird and seems outdated. But I think there's probably a pretty good game buried in there, with some experience. I'd probably be interested in playing it again. Although, with so many good games out there that I don't have time to play as it is, it'd have to be a situation where the host was rather insistent on it.

Now is the time for the 3rd #euroclassics post, and it's #throughTheDesert, of course again by #reinerknizia published at #zmangames. It's all about #areacontrol and #networkbuilding. This edition is virtually much improved when compared to the old German version #duchdiewüste by #kosmosgames.

Рубрика: "Если ваша вечеринка хотя бы отдалённо не похожа на это - даже не пытайтесь меня приглашать" 😁😁 Сегодня играл в офигенную настолку #войныктулху - эдакий #areacontrol с мистикой , боями и сверхъестественными существами.
Люблю вселенную Лавкрафта и настолки по ней - получается атмосферно и, как правило, сочно. И эта игра не стала исключением.
Простые, доступные механики, не перегруженные лишними деталями правила (а этим грешит масса больших настолок) и потрясающий реквизит - я остался в дичайшем восторге😏
Играл в дуэльный режим, но очень хочется попробовать #мультиплеер - игра станет несколько более разнообразной и менее предсказуемой.
Такие дела. А какие настолки любите вы? Напишите в комменты)

Played #onmars by #vitallacerda couple of hours ago.
First impressions, then surface analysis.
This game is evil. This game doesn't forgive. I dumped two minerals which are the only valuable resourse in the game, on a scientist I thought will work on my blueprint. But I ran out of workers to build a mineral mine, so I had to suffer for the rest of the game, watching my opponents developing colony.
I would like to take another shot with full understanding of what's going on, but I am not sure I will enjoy it.
I think I was expecting too much of this game, because it is @vitallacerda
But it appeared to be average, not to say mediocre. There are #areacontrol and #workerplacement just in Lacerda style. There are seven types of resourses with only two valuable.
As a whole OnMars reminded me #scythe. You move units to control areas, you build where you control, you produce where you control. Or you upgrade or develop instead. The most points you score from the board and trackers.

When the weather outside is frightful, that cellophane coming off feels so delightful. And since the Polynesians have no image rights today, a Moana box design will make my kids play! #shelfofshame down to 28 after this!
Heute ein etwas älteres Spiel aus dem Hause @real_queengames gespielt. In #Flandern versuchen wir über das ausspielen von Stadtkarten in Kombination mit Einflusskarten die sechs Städten in Flandern zu bauen und am Ende die meisten Punkte für die fertigen Städte zu kriegen.
Klassisches Area-Controll Spiel, wobei mir der zusätzliche Altionskartenstapel für den jeweiligen aktiven Spieler zu groß erschien.
