Board Games (Feb 25)

I still haven’t received my shipment of Oreos so the review will be delayed. I did, however, learn two new boardgames this week. We were also joined by Amanda who works in an adjacent office enclave.

The evening started off with Roll For It, which is turning out to be a very fun intro game and something to play while we wait for the group to arrive. Camel Up and Ca$h ‘n Guns followed after.

Killer Bunnies

The first new game was Killer Bunnies, suggested by both Amanda and Chris. The goal of the game is to obtain the carrot card that matches the predetermined carrot card at the bottom of a similar stack that is hidden to all players. It’s effectively a game of mostly chance since you only need 1 carrot to possibly win the game.

The rules weren’t properly explained to me, so I wasn’t exactly sure what was legal for me to do during my turn. It started making more sense toward the end of the game but it was too late. I did, however, manage to be the biggest jerk possible. There was a weapon card which I play that wiped out a lot of bunnies and I immediately played another card I had which was to use the weapon again, which I did. I massacred all of the bunnies on the table during that turn.

Dixit

The last game of the evening was Dixit. You have to try and find a clever way to describe one of your cards without blatantly giving it away. There’s a straight forward points system based on how the guesses worked out. The game involves a lot of imagination and creativity, both of which I don’t have. I didn’t do too bad, I ended up 1 point away from the eventual winner.
