A fair amount of gaming in this weekend. Saturday games meet played Azul (had only done once before), Broom Service - a combination worker placement / card selection game where you are acting as medieval witches, herb gatherers and druids to make and deliver magic potions. Lastly a quick game of SOS Dino of save the Dinos from being wiped out by volcanos. A simple game have played before, but we wanted something simple at the end of the day.

Then first run of The Isle of Cats by the wife and I. My weekend for the wins, getting them for all the non-co op games. Which usually means will lose them all the next time played. Splitting our wins around 50-50 for most games tends to keep both of us from getting frustrated 😂

Played Welcome To and Welcome To New Vegas, back-to-back. Previously, I'd only played a couple of games of the former and none of the latter. I like WT. Good puzzle where early decisions often come back later to bite you in the butt. WTNV seemed overly complex ... or maybe just more complex than I prefer. This made what was already a somewhat 'busy' play sheet even busier. So much going on it was difficult to differentiate between the different casino types, especially once things had been crossed out/circled/etc. I'd love to know if someone has created a simplified version of the play sheet (for either game).

I agree with your thoughts on WTNV. Have played WT a few times and have enjoyed it every time, win or lose. It's got some strategy, but it's not overly complex. WTNV just seemed to add complexity without any game play or thematic reason, except to make it harder. Not one I plan to go back to, but still want to try out the different sheets (winter, zombie etc.) for WT.
