Sunday family board game: Neon Knights 2086. It’s a slow but fun racing game set in the future as seen through the 1980s. I got it on a massive sale, and we like it. Also the “Laser Ryders” soundtrack pairs well with this game.

Board Game Arena is an excellent service with one tiny flaw:

Every time I play a good game on there I end up buying the physical version.

Oh wait, that might be a problem with me, not with the website. 🤔

My three year old daughter just totally smoked us all at Incan Gold.

and we have played on this camping trip:

- Gang of Four
- Saboteur
- Snake Oil
- Werewolf
- Cribbage
- Sheriff Of Nottingham

And more to come.

My other pics turned out...poorly, but this one works. For being printed in 1972 this thing is in amazing shape, and apparently has never been played. The money was still all in packs, like notebooks, held together with glue. I'll try to get a picture of the stacks we haven't separated yet.

I just bought a copy of a board game that's older than me on eBay. I've liked Acquire in all its forms, but nothing beats the original 3M plastic pieces on a grid. I'll probably post pictures when it arrives.

Absolutely love the components in . Metal coins, wooden tokens, gorgeous painted art. AND the game is fun to boot!

I have 's latest kickstarted game, "The Ancient World, 2nd Edition" sitting, still shrink-wrapped, on my game shelf.

Waiting for the semester to end.

Just played with the family. First time I’ve played that game in years. I had forgotten how simple and fun it is!

13 YEar Old claimed his victory in our inaugural game of My First Scythe. He was appropriately humble. #🎄

You know what's fun? Playing 𝗖𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗸! with the kids is fun. Even if my 11YO beat my score. 😉 !

Curious to know what all you and lovers think about the new Fantasy Flight game? It looks interesting, but having each deck be a set thing and $10 a shot seems odd. Hey there! I'm just starting to figure out this whole fediverse thing and love that there's a boardgames instance out there! I'm definitely into the world of , playing a lot of Clank with my kids, trying to train them up into bigger and better games. 😃
