I got The Brigade, Deep Space D-6, and ORC STABR in the mail over the last fortnight.

At least Deep Space D-6 is a solitaire game, and relies on only myself to get it down from the shelf ;)

Tiny Epic Zombies arrived in the mail... my guess is it will go on the shelf with the other recent ones and never be played... :)
Our house is a bit like that at the moment. We got some decent shelving finally for our game collection and at present we're just leaving Gloomhaven on the table all the time, not even bothering to pack it up, just changing from one scenario to the next. Other then Concentric the other week haven't played anything else for about a month.

It’s good, although was only able to get to the one day this year. It’s 70% board games, about 25% RPG and maybe one or two war games (figures based). Everyone brings along games for everyone to play, so a good chance to try out games you don’t have.

They have a buy and sell as well, so good if you have any games you don’t get to the table you want to trade. Tickets sell in advance (usually by early September for the mid-September it is each year). Worth going to IMO.

Forbidden Sky arrived yesterday, courtesy of the third prize winnings in the BigFooty tipping comp (thanks again Chief!). Keeping it aside as a Christmas present for the whole family (as the kids have enjoyed Forbidden Island and Desert). My other one on order from my winnings is the Forgotten Circles expansion for Gloomhaven (to arrive in February, which at the rate of getting through Gloomhaven will be started in February 2020).

As someone who's enjoyed both Desert and Island, I was interested to see Sky for sale at PAX. Previously I wasn't aware of it. I read some reviews and, in general, they weren't glowing. But, as I haven't played it, I can't speak to their accuracy. Hopefully your family enjoys it.

1st & Goal

I recently picked up this, and one of its expansions, from Milsims. I like American Football and saw this game got a positive review on The Dice Tower, so thought I'd give it a go.

Mildly amusing anecdote: I actually pre-ordered the base game in September 2016. This was not long after Joe Dodgy acquired Milsims, so they hadn't confirmed what stock they actually had (compared to what was listed on the site). In the end it had to be ordered from the US and was due to arrive in early 2017. Alas, it wasn't in the shipping container. I'd sort of forgotten about it and just assumed it was never coming. This didn't really bother me as I hadn't put down any cash, and wasn't really a 'must have'. I was on the Milsims site last week and randomly saw one of the expansions listed. I thought I'd see if the base game was still on pre-order. Turns out it had arrived last month. Off to Milsims I went.

So latest additions, for Christmas I got - Detective a Modern Crime board game.



For her birthday (just before Xmas) my wife got Heist and for Christmas she got Everdell. The 35+ degree weather this week a good excuse to avoid chores and spend gaming. :D

I watched the game night episode of Everdell and it looks really good for an engine building game

Just bought Deception: Murder in Hong Kong

Cheaty Mages
Secret Hitler
Azul
Codenames
Mysterium
Captain is Dead
A list with a few 'social deduction' games in it I see.

I've only played Deception the once and want to try it again. First time round I'm not sure we had the 'right' group.

My housemate owns Mysterium. We'll be taking our first crack at it this weekend.
