Card/board/dice games!
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:59:38 AM »
OK, fess up, who else is a card, board, or dice game nerd?  :D

I have a decent collection started and wish I had time to play more.  Currently I get out every other Tuesday for a game night at a local lounge.  We usually start with the Coup card game and then move on a bigger game.  Past weeks have included Lords of Waterdeep, King of Tokyo, Quarriors, Ghost Stories...depends on what people feel like playing that night.

I just picked up Dead Panic and Lords and Ladies but haven't played either with a group yet (I've played Dead Panic a couple of times by myself just to get the mechanics down enough to be able to teach it). 

Carl, you were mentioning the Walking Dead card game over in the rant thread...how's that one?

Yea I have a few such games :)  I've gotten into a few card type games but the CCG's are annoying and my OCD has me trying to "Collect Them All!"

As to board games, there are quite a few interesting ones depending on what you're trying to do and the size of the group.

Pandemic is a pretty good game for 1 to 4 people. It's cooperative so one person can know the rules real well and help others without "winning".

Castles of Burgundy is another favorite of mine. It's a bit fiddly in the number of bits used for play but it's quick to understand how the game plays then you're working on strategy.

Formula De was great fun at the Board Game Day a couple of weeks back. It uses different sized dice for your gears to tell how fast (number of spaces) you can go. From a d4 up to a d30.

Aztlan is another resource management game. Up to four tribes that work together or fight over lands.

Tzolken is a resource management game. Multiple wheels on the board change the outcome of your position as the wheel turns.

Level 7 Escape is a Zombie type game. You start at level 7 and work your way out.

For longer games, Talisman is fun but can take several hours to play. Same with Arkham Horror (this one is cooperative). Both have a lot of expansions which can take the game up to 6, 8 or more hours of play.

The new Star Wars miniature game from Fantasy Flight works pretty well. It's pretty easy to get set up and you can fly X-Wing fighters, Millennium Falcon, and Dart Vader's fighter. The mini games tend to get pricy though.

And for the best fun, Cards Against Humanity. Not for the kids though :)

Oh, The Walking Dead card game.

You have 104 Walker cards numbered sequentially and a set of Hero cards. The Walker cards have bullets on them, from 1 to 6 as I recall. These count as points at the end of the game.

Each person gets 14 Walker cards then four Walkers are laid on the table. Each person also gets one Hero card.

The idea is to lay higher card values to the right of the base cards. When you reach 5 cards in a row, the next person with a higher card value takes the stack.

Each player selects 1 or 2 cards from their hand. When all have selected, all turn over the cards at the same time. All cards are placed sequentially. So if Carl played a 32 and a 54 and Bob played an 18 and a 92, Bob would play the 18 first, then Carl for the 32, then Carl again for the 54, then Bob for the 92.

If you put a card down where the card value was not higher than any of the right most cards on the table, that card will reset the stack with the highest right most value (placed to the right of the stack with the highest value; the 92 above for example).

The Hero card is used to jump in the order. If there's a 5 stack on the table and you don't have any cards that will go to the right of it, you can play your Hero card along with any other Walker card. When cards are flipped over, you go first regardless of your card value. You do still need to match the requirements above and someone with a Hero card and Walker card less than yours goes before you do.

It was interesting in that there weren't a lot of rules to worry about and pretty simple. The strategy is where you get the points. Playing 1 card vs 2 or playing a sequence. For example, I the stack had an 18 to the right and I had a 20 and a 21 card. With other stacks having higher numbers, I'm pretty confident that my 21 will take the stack with 20 to the right. The only time I'd be foiled is if my opponent plays a Hero card along with something higher than a 20 and I'd lose the stack.

Formula De sounds fun!  I might have to pick that one up.  Do you recommend De or the newer version (Formula D), or doesn't it matter?

They're both the same. Formula De is the first version. Formula D is the US version (or second edition or something).

The change is with managing vehicles. With the first edit, you had a card for each car and a sheet of paper for 1 lap or 2 laps. You marked off the damage with a pencil as it occurred. The new one has a card but with a plastic bit that fits into it, something like a gear shifter I think. So no waste of paper. I think the cars are a little different as well. I have pictures of the game Saturday. I'll see if I can remember to post them up.

And if you have knowledge of Cthulhu (HP Lovecraft's gods and the commercialization thereof :) ), The Doom That Ate Atlantic City might be fun.

Monopoly sized board with Neutral Gates vs Railroads and passing Mi-Go instead of passing Go.

There are 8 old god miniatures, each with a unique characteristic.

There's a Chants deck of cards and another deck (can't think of the name) where the powers come from.

You have 5 gate markers.

Each lot has 2 houses to start.

You have three actions.

1. Throw 2 dice to move around the board.
2. Combat with another Old God if you're in the same region (5 lot sections between Neutral Gates and corners).
3. Destruction.

Combat is easy. You roll for attack, the other guy rolls for defense. If you tie or win, you get one of his cultists. Otherwise nothing happens.

You're trying to destroy the two houses. When you destroy the second one, you put a Gate in its place. When you get 6 gates, you win. (Note you only have 5 gate cards. You don't need a 6th because that's when you win :) ).

You also get a Doom card at the beginning of the game. This provides an alternate method of winning. You have to land on one of your own gates to activate the Doom.

It took us about 30 minutes or so to play a game. We played three. Jeanne won, then I won, then she did.

One of the fun things is if you get doubles on movement, you take another turn. If you get doubles on combat, you attack again. If you get doubles on destruction, you get to try and destroy again. The bad part, if you get three doubles before your turn passes to the next person, you're banished from the board. You have to roll 2 dice and get under the number of cultists you currently have in order to get back on the board at the Mi-Go space.

Cultists and Houses are 'currency'. You have to sacrifice cultists or turn in houses to active actions on the Chants card or the other card.

My favorite card game is Nuclear War.

Most games end with everybody losing, which I find amusing.


My favorite board game (if you could call a canvas map a board) is Privateer, now called by the inane name of Pirateer.

My favorite dice game is Cosmic Wimpout.

Exactly what he said.

Though we've been calling Privateer "The Boat Game" for more than twenty years now (the "board" has absorbed many alcohol-based fluids during that time).
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Yep, and you can still get it along with the 4 expansions :D

Gloom can be fun depending on the group. If you are familiar with movies and quote them, you might find the Z-Man B Movie card games fun.

Quarriors and Lord of The Rings are interesting Dice Building games.

There are several scenario type board games with individual pieces that the scenario selects and places. Descent, Mice and Mystics, and Mansions of Madness.

Another fun one is Whitechapel where you're playing London bobbies after Jack The Ripper. Ticket to Ride is fun and easy for casual gamers. Dominant Species has an interesting game play and depicts evolution. Lords of Vega$ was fun as well. Robo Rally is a good game, especially if you're a computer guy :)

For card games, I liked the DC deckbuilding game. Star Wars, Netrunner, and Mage Wars are fun deck building games.

depends on where you live. There are a few meetup groups for board gaming. I'm an organizer for one of the largest role playing groups (over 900 members) and we play board games as well.

The local game stores generally have a board game night or two. You might try there as well.

Another +1 for MeetUp for finding people to play with.  That's where I found my gaming group. :inlove: 

Nuclear War is great! That was the first nerdy board game that I remember playing, back in high school.  I brought my copies out the other day with some friends and found the original "play by mail" instruction sheets....ah, the days before the internet. :lol:

Tonight is my game night. :D  I'm trying to convince someone to bring Formula D.  :lol:

Well, MeetUp seems a cool way to find new folks to play with (but I'm not sure about a Switzerland component).  There are a bunch of different gaming groups here in Grand Rapids.

My brother still asks me to play Magic with him whenever I'm back in town.  I swear some of these decks are ready to graduate high school.

In no particular order, we're still playing:

Cards Against Humanity (stupid, but funny)
Munchkin
Settlers of Catan
Carcasonne

Don't get Jadzia started on Star Trek CCG...

We wound up playing a couple of rounds of Frank's Zoo (card game) last night, followed by Euphoria: Build A Better Dystopia.  That one was really slow to get started because there were about 10 million rules, but once we got the hang of it, it was fun.  I had to leave partway through the game because I am old and tired, but I would play it again.

Diplomacy is the best old style board game, bar none.

I agree. Not always good to play with someone with whom you wish to remain friends, though.

A friend from work has gotten me into Flames of War.  A WWII 15mm miniatures game.

Here is a pic I took of our last game:

I play the Star Trek CCG, and yes, I have collected them all. Thank gods Decipher went bust, so I only have to print the new cards the Players Committee designs.

Fourstring and I also have a small collection of German board games; Catan, Power Grid and Carcassonne to name a few of the better known ones.

Oh, and we are definitely Terrible People.

When I was in grad school in Boston I could always tell which students were from the Midwest because they knew how to play euchre. I love it!

I consider Flames of War a "dice" game since it's all resolved with 6 sided dice.  I used to love playing Axis & Allies.  I have the computer version on my laptop.  I never got to play Fortress America or Conquest of the Empire.  I always wanted to try those.  Some of the ones Carl posted look very interesting.  Shame I'm nowhere near Colorado.  I'm sure he'd teach some of them to me.
