Some boardgame news
Written by MetalHead84 on 2015-06-04 16:19:16

Since I don't play videogames that much since a couple of months, I thought it will be great to add a boardgame news in the blog.
Every 2 months there is a boardgame night at our local store, and the last one (this past saturday) there was a tournament of Pandemic Survival.
There was 12 teams playing, and the winner will be going to the National tournament at the next Comicon in Montreal.
It didn't start really well for me and my girlfriend, so much of the game we were behind and it stayed like that for much of the game. We have finish in 8th place, but it was really fun to participate in the tournament and I hope there will be more.

Also, I'm looking to do a game night at our place every 2 months (the month that there's nothing at the local store) with some friends and co-worker, this way we will be able to play more often with our boardgame.

2013 goal
Written by MetalHead84 on 2013-01-28 10:00:32

Here's my goal for 2013.
For the Xbox360 I will aim for 16 000 GS (currently around 11 500).
For PS3, that will be to at least play a couple of game, as I didn't use it in around 1 year in a half.
In the boardgames department, we got a new one, which is Stone Age, I have already played that one on yucata, it was ok but my girlfriend really like it, so I decide to buy it, and it's actually more fun to play it in real.

Latest boardgame buy
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-03-29 09:04:56

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.

First board game entry
Written by MetalHead84 on 2012-02-27 12:34:50

As I have write in the first entry of the blog, I also like boardgames, and there will be some infos about my other hobby, so here's the first one.
Last weekend I decide to go check at the local gamestore of my town if there's any new boardgames. In the windows there was a poster advising a game night, for that evening.
That was my first experience of a game night with stranger (I have host some game night with some friends at my place), and it was a great night. Me and my girlfriend sat with 3 other guy and the manager's girlfriend to play a game of 7 Wonders (great game) and a game of Mord Im Arosa, a really strange game involving a tower and cube that you throw trought a hole in the tower, and you need to listen on which floor the cube end to find "clue" about a murder.
The afternoon I also buy the Game of Throne LCG and I can't wait to play it. Stay tuned for more boardgame blog in the next weeks.
