Weekly Replay: October 26 – November 1, 2015

This week involved three different games… but many, many plays of two of them.

Two new games in the Boardgame Corner review queue are The Last Spike and Queen’s Necklace. One of the things I love most about reviewing new games is that sometimes you find a diamond in the rough. A publisher sends you a game to review, you’ve never heard of it, and then BAM it blows you away. Spoiler alert: That happened for one of these two games.

Other than that it was a special Halloween play of Mysterium, which seemed quite fitting for the holiday.

Read on for my thoughts on these three games, all of which are making their first appearance on the blog. Or check out the archive for previous weekly replays.

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.

I took a small break from the Weekly Replays as I travelled back to Indiana for some time with family and friends. Catching up to speed, here’s a triple Weekly Replay… with some bonus quotes sprinkled throughout.

The week before we left I only played one game: Dead of Winter.

The week we were in Indiana, however, was filled with some favorites: Splendor, Jaipur, Adventure Time Love LetterThe Grizzled, and Fluxx w/ Fluxx Dice.

This past week was all about the new games: Thunder Alley, Tiny Epic Galaxies… and, of course, the long awaited Pandemic Legacy.
