Weekly Replay: October 19-25, 2015

This week’s Weekly Replay is going to feel quite boring compared to the last. Not only did I only play two different games this week, I also mentioned both of them in last week’s Weekly Replay.

Pandemic Legacy took the stage as far as gaming goes this week. Other than that it was an evening of Tiny Epic Galaxies.

Read on for details about these two games and check out the archive if you’re looking for a little something more.

Pandemic Legacy

At the end of last week, Jacob and I were just past the halfway point in Season One. We were loving it so far, and couldn’t wait to see what surprises the rest of the game would hold. We played Monday evening and Tuesday evening, and are now completely finished with Season One. (By the way, I am SO GLAD they are already working on Season Two!)

I’m not going to say much about the second half of this game because I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I will say this: I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. It was completely fantastic in my eyes, from start to finish, and was everything I was hoping it would be.

You might like Pandemic Legacy…

  • If you like the original game of Pandemic (especially if you like the expansions).
  • If you like the idea of a game that evolves over time with each play.
  • If you like adding stickers to a game’s board and cards.
  • If you like tearing up cards in a game. This was our pile of torn up cards at the end of our last game:


Tiny Epic Galaxies

Thursday evening Boardgame Corner met up at The Haunted Game Cafe for our weekly playing of games in our queue.

This was the first time I had a chance to play a 5-player version of Tiny Epic Galaxies. While I think it shines with 3-4 players, especially 3, it was certainly fun with 5… even though I lost every game.

What I’m appreciating most about this game is the balancing act between all of the options – do you go for culture? do you go for energy? are you focusing on leveling up your spaceship fleet and then getting cards or vice versa? All in all, the game still relies quite a bit on which dice you roll, but it’s quite fun trying to figure out which route you want to take.

You might like Tiny Epic Galaxies…

  • If you’ve enjoyed other games in the Tiny Epic series.
  • If you like cute little spaceship pawns.
  • If you like games that come in small boxes so you can easily travel with them.
