Saturday Session Report
Though my discretionary gaming time lately has been getting eaten up by my new job and new X-Box 360, Saturday board gaming is still, thankfully, a large bright spot in my weekly routine.
This week, an element of SABG gathered at Chris' house for a solid day of gaming fun. Here's what I remember playing (not in chronological order):
Fury of Dracula
Glory to Rome
Doom (rules explanation only)
Guitar Hero 3 (Steve on X-Box 360)
With the possible exception of Castles (a $1 purchase by Sean at BGG.con), all of the games were great fun. I really do want to get a full game of Doom to the table sometime soon. Fury of Dracula was a good as I remember, and the good guys actually managed to pull out a victory against evil Chris this time. Neuroshima Hex really is best as a 2-player game. The visible scoring track leads unavoidably to kingmaking, and other than heckling there isn't much to do during other players' turns. Still, I'm glad I own it as its relatively quick, yet meaty enough to be interesting. Citadels was good just for the trash talking, and Glory to Rome gets better with each play. Notre Dame is a solid "7" in my book. I'm never extremely excited about playing it, but its always satisfactorily entertaining.
Chris, as usual, outdid himself with the highest standards of hosting. Man, those breakfast tacos were good!
