Scythe. The big board.
Splendor. Not sure I like this game. Messes with my mind. #bgg
Sharing some photos of Steampunk Rally.
I am not sure what I think about this game. It has a lot going for it; the components are great, the art is great, the theme is great. There are even moments in when the design and the theme merge, which I love. For example, by using red dice (heat) you get blue dice (steam). Makes sense, right?
The one bad thing is, I never felt like I was in a race. And for a game that has “rally” in the name, you would think that would be a prime element. My wife say, the board (the track in which the race happens on) made her think of Chutes and Ladders. Telling.

As someone who loves the board gaming hobby, and consequently, Shutup & Sit Down; their t-shirt contest has me in stitches.
I recently had a thought that it would be cool to play through all of the historical games I have in chronological order. I am sure that I am not the first one to think of it, but I am going to try it. The question is, do I include games with historical themes or purely simulators. I like the idea of using games that aren’t just consims in order to compare the experience. Do you learn anything about history purley from theme, or does it need to model history in order to learn. I am going to try to get a group of people to do this with me to to get their thoughts throughout the process. If it is interesting, I will write them up. Here is the list!
The Age of Sail
The Great War
World War II
- Unconditional Surrender: World War II in Europe
- The Hunters
- Advanced Squad Leader I have multiple ASL Starter Kits, but I will lump them all together for this exercise.
- Operation F.A.U.S.T.
