We added a 5th member to our board gaming group! Our colleague Daniel finally had time to join us last Thursday and we decided to start off slowly with relatively easy games to teach/play.
This is one of the games I had purchased over the Winter holiday. The game involves betting on 5 camels over the duration of the race. You can bet on which camel will finish ahead of the others after all 5 dice are rolled, you can also bet on the overall winning/losing camels. Extremely fun game, very simple to explain. I was playing it a bit wrong with my cousins.
King of Tokyo
My family also owns this game, it’s a dice rolling game which you become a monster and either try to score victory points or try to kill off all the other monsters. You earn points by rolling certain dice, by entering/staying in Tokyo, or other effects from cards. You lose health if monsters attack you while you’re in Tokyo or if the monster currently inside Tokyo attacks you. Another very easy to explain game.
Tsuro is a game where you place tiles on the board and your character piece moves along the paths the tiles make. That’s pretty much 90% of the rules. Your piece continues moving if a new tile is placed in front of it even when it’s not your turn. And you die when your character reaches an edge of the playing space or collides with another piece. Another very easy to explain game.
And we ended the night with Fluxx.
I should be getting the Cinnamon Bun Oreos soon, as well as the Filled Cupcake ones that just came out today. There’s really not much I have to review but I will have Batman/Superman cereal sometime this week and it should be quite delicious.
