We had our second game night on Saturday, July 5th, and we got to meet some new people which is what I was hoping. Our first night was the weekend before and my friend Les brought up Doctor Who Monopoly. We played that because we were familiar with the rules and it was a franchise that we love. It also helped us hone our knowledge of the Whoverse. I admit, some of the properties (planets) I had never heard of, but I loved letting others fill me in.
This week we played a card game called Star Realms. Thomas Chick and I picked them up at a distributor event and were told that it was a fun game. This was the first time that we had a chance to sit down and play it. I’ll admit the rules were a little daunting at first, but I had a little experience with other card games such as Magic, and that came in handy. To me, the game was fun and I’d like to play it again, sometime. You might want to ask Thomas what he thought over on his site, www.thefellowshipofthegeeks.net. I’m sure with a few well-placed questions, I can get answers to the few situations that popped up.
Join us next Saturday, July 12th at 7pm at the shop when we’ll do it all again. Have you played Star Realms? What are your thoughts?
