Hunting Party

Just one more post...

I don't know if you all saw it, but there was a fairly positive review of a game we're all familiar with over at boardgamenews.com this past Sunday.

Thanks for the heads up Jeff. Of course...I already knew about it, but others may want to see it. I was mostly happy with the review.

The only negative part of it that I saw was what Tom (or was it Rick?) described as 'chaos' which I interpreted as a dislike for 'variable player powers'. It seems like he would have similar issues with any game that breaks its own rules.

Yea...you'd think so. But he rated Cosmic Encounters a 10. Go figure.

I think Hunting Party is really one of those games that you need to play to determine if you will like it or not. If I had just heard about it, I probably wouldn't have put it on my "to play" list. I actually sat down with Ben and Patrick to play and even when they first started explaining it, I wasn't sure I'd like it. But I do like it. (I think one problem with Tom's reviews, or in reviews in general, is that the people you play the game with make a big difference, but that's another discussion for another blog post some other day...)

Speaking of HP, has the selling price jumped yet or can I still procure a copy relatively inexpensively?
