    My group always wonders how TI4 games last as long as they do when other groups are playing, lol. As a group we have played TI4 about 5 times, and the games have never lasted over 4 hours.

    Oh yes, I understand. No complaints here, I watch every batrep you guys put up.

    Yep, you are the guy that brought Puppet Wars to my attention. A battle report of that would be sweet. I really like the card system used in the game. If I enjoy the game a lot, I may be interested in checking out Malifaux, the miniatures game system it is based on. I have already bought vintage spools to use as terrain(I wonder where I saw that, hmmmmm) and I plan on using jumbo buttons for work benches, and small buttons for activation tokens. And yes, I had your summary and cards downloaded before my copy even came in, lol.

    My copy of Court of the Dead: Mourner’s Call came in a few weeks ago, and the components are great, and I can’t wait to play it next week. I have been playing some solo runs of Mythic Battles: Pantheon to get the rules down and I have a feeling I will really enjoy this game. I love original spins on dice combat(Forbidden Stars is my favorite board game largely due to it’s combat) and the dice combat system is really cool in MB:P. I played a game of Arcane Academy with my 7 year old son, and it is a very well made engine builder that is easy to teach and grasp. I still need to assemble my models for Puppet Wars Unstitched and Aetherium, and I am looking forward to giving those a try as well. Lately I have been buying, sleeving, and printing out summaries for way more games than I have gotten to play, unfortunately.

    I have Court of the Dead: Mourner’s Call waiting for me to get home from work as well! I can’t wait to play. I had a chance to open it up before I left and the components are great. It is an area control, card drafting KS game with a cool, dark theme. I should get this one played next week, so I will see if the game lives up to the components.

    Before I left I did get to play Big Trouble in Little China: The Board Game, and it was great fun. It has always been my favorite movie, but I was wary about the game because of a bunch of typo issues and rules errors on the components, but I broke down and bought the deluxe edition because someone was selling it for cheap on Facebook. I am glad I picked it up finally.

    I played a game of Fate of the Elder Gods with my new play mat and enjoyed it, as usual.

    Besides Court of the Dead, I have quite a few new games waiting for me when I get home. I picked up Mythic Battles Pantheon 1.5 with the KS exclusives, Puppet Wars Unstitched (and a bunch of sewing spools to pimp it out, thanks to someone’s youtube video) and Aetherium, a cyber punk miniatures skirmish game. My days off should be filled with some great gaming.

    If you are a fan of The Fury of Dracula, it is a game you will probably enjoy. It’s not as complex as Fury but it has that cat and mouse thing going. It’s a fun game. I enjoy Fury more, but it is easier to teach and a good bit shorter, so it has it’s place along side of it.

    I got to do a good bit of gaming on my week off. I got another play of Jaws in, as well as two plays of Blood Rage one night. Star Wars Legion hit the table again, as well as one of my favorite games ever, Forbidden Stars. I wanted to finally get my first play of Wild West Exodus in, and had it all set up, but it never happened before I had to leave for work again. Maybe next time. Since moving into my new home and having a dedicated game room with an actual gaming table, it has really got a lot of my friends interested in coming check some games out, which is awesome.

    I got in a game of Star Wars Legion, and I loved it. I got to play Outer Rim and Jaws as well. All three I picked up recently.

    It has been awhile so I have quite a few games to mention.

    I got my all in KS of Heroes of Land, Air and Sea recently and quickly got a 5 player game in. It was a lot fun, very RTS feeling, kind of like Warcraft or something. Wasn’t as long as I thought it would be, clocking in at about 2 hours. I will have to play it more, but so far I dig it.

    I got a game in of Rivet Wars from CMON with my daughter the other day. I got it in a trade and it is a pretty cool, simple, quick game.

    I played a few games of Western Legends, as well as demoed it at the Southern Board Game Fest we have annually in South Louisiana, and as usual, had a great time with it. I can’t wait for the new Ante Up expansion KS I backed.

    Got another play of Claustrophobia 1643 in and loved it as much as I did the first time. This time I played the demon player and as expected, was a lot of fun.

    I also got to teach A Song of Ice and Fire to one of my board game group and he seemed to enjoy it. Of course, I had to endure constant remarks about “measuring to move, blah, blah” from everyone else. After the game he said he enjoyed it and would play again, except, you guessed it, he wasn’t a fan of measuring to move. I can’t figure out the issue my group has with that mechanic.

    Oh, definitely daunting to think about painting ASoIaF. Being a new painter I haven’t even considered it, lol. I would be painting for the next 3 years. I am used to gaming with unpainted minis so I just play with it like it is. Maybe if I were to play in a tournament or something I would paint just the army I was bringing. It is great, but hard to get to the table for me for some reason. My board game group immediately says not interested when they see a ruler or measuring device for movement, and the local miniatures group seem to really only play Games Workshop games. I have been playing with my daughter.

    I have enjoyed my plays of Blackstone Fortress as well. The one solo mission someone did in Precipice was kind of odd though. It made all the other players just kind of hang out. Overall though everyone enjoyed it. My only complaint is there were a few rules situations that the rulebook didn’t go over. One of the big ones was what happens to a character that gets taken out of action, but doesn’t die, in Precipice? Do they insta-heal because they are in precipice, or do they sit out the next expedition?

    I started an Arcadia Quest campaign with my daughter and son, and we are having a lot of fun with that. I got a whole bunch of it in a trade so I am glad we are enjoying it.

    I got another game in of A Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures Game, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite 2 player games. I love the theme, and the hybrid board game meets miniatures game rules. I just picked up all of the 3D terrain, which also helps.

    And finally, I got two more games of Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire/Nightvault in and, as usual, had a great time. So far I may be leaning towards the Skaven as my favorite war band.

    It’s ok. Those Tamiya weathering powders work great by the way!
