Latest boardgame buy

As you probably notice I didn't put any videogame updates in a while, it's mostly due to the fact that I'm mostly playing boardgame lately and I have buy quite a lot (around 7 in the last month and a half). Just last week I got 3 new one so I decide to make a real post about that.
The reason I went to my local game store was mainly to get Warhammer : Invasion and perhaps World Without End. Both game where still there and I notice the Gears Of War boardgame, the price was a bit high (99,99$) but the review of the game that I have read earlier and the fact that it can be played solo made me buy it.
So far I mostly play Gears Of War (around 15 times the first mission in solo) and it really feels like the video game (it's even harder) your life is limited to the number of card in your hand (that you also use to take action) and after every turn, the locust got a turn and it's not long before they all goes in the same area and attack you.
I have also played a couple of game of World Without End with my girlfriend. You play a card that let every one collect a ressource/money/victory point and some events, then you play a card from your end to either collect another ressources or help to the building of some structures around the board. But after 3 games, there was not a time where I had a lot of one type of ressources, so you need to be really careful.
For Warhammer: Invasion we just had the time to play a short game, so I can't really give my opinion.
When I will have more experience with those game I will write full review of them. But for now, if you like both board and video game, you should take a look at Gears Of War.
