Gameweek 13/2013: Targi and Bora Bora

One live session and games at We had only two players in N-BGC meeting and Targi was a solid option in such a situation. Targi is a very elegant worker placement game for two where theme is secondary and interesting mechanisms combine in a way which I have not seen before. It’s not the […]

Gameweek 7/2013: Brawling Barons, Steam and For Sale

Live games on Wednesday and a lot of games at and Brawling Barons was a the first game of the live session and there wasn’t much to expect from the game. It looked silly and uninteresting and the premises for the game weren’t very good. Game proved to be mostly like it promised […]

Not a bad gaming week. I playerd live on Thursday and several games also in Princes of Florence is a solid game I’ve played couple of times before. I like the bidding aspect of the game. What I don’t like is that player turns take rather long time and there’s a lot of downtime […]
