  1. Can I ask where you found a copy? Seems like it's out of stock everywhere.
  2. There's a doc about the making of it on tonight: BBC4, 7.30pm. I'm assuming it's a longer version of the clip above. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0brzngq
  3. Watched the first episode and thought it was okay. But the fact that I've never got around to watching any more probably speaks volumes.
  4. Yes, the components are lovely, including a load of clear dice that are really pretty. It's quite a simple game, but good fun. Would work better with more than two players, I think. I seem to recall there was introductory scenario, and I didn't realise there were detailed instructions on the back of the cards, so keep that in mind. @jonnyalpha Is that the board game of VivaJava, or the dice game? I've played the dice game and it's well worth having a go of. I think the board game is supposed to be pretty good too. It's 3 players minimum though, so we've never got it.
  5. I know! It's ludicrous for a tenner. When I first opened the box, I could only see the expansion, and I was pretty happy with that, as I'd been thinking of getting the game anyway.
  6. I got The Captain is Dead, and one of the expansions for it. That's awesome, as I've actually had that on my BGG wishlist for ages. Definitely 'treat' for me.
  7. Yep, I'm up for it too. We could always see if anyone wants to swap for anything we might not like? But really, it's just an amusing idea.
  8. That would be great, thanks. Seriously, I've no idea how you managed to do it. Another amazing mix.
  9. I've never played the original, so I can't compare the two. I found this thread on BBG, where people give two different answers as to which is best. https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2064328/original-or-dice-version It's a very puzzle-like roll and write, in that the decisions you make have a lot of knock-on effects. There's almost no player interaction though, in case that's important. But there's also no down time, as one person rolls the dice and everyone uses them at the same time. It comes with four different map layouts, so we tend to play at least a couple
  10. Yes, that one's supposed to be good. Looked like it might feel a bit too similar to Kokoro for us though. And they way they've released the variants bugged me.
  11. There's a lot of really good roll and writes out at the moment. We've been playing The Castles of Burgundy, Kokoro (which is card, rather than dice-based) and Octodice; as well as the ipad versions of Qwixx, Ganz Schon Clever and Noch mal. And we've ordered Welcome to... and Steamrollers. We may have a problem.
  12. There's an article at Kotaku as well: https://kotaku.com/two-hours-with-the-amazingly-detailed-red-dead-redempti-1829187487 (assuming it was the video part stopping you, not the work )
  13. Yes, they do seem a bit thin on the ground. I guess they were fairly small print runs. BoardGamePrices says that Spirit Games has Dale of Merchants 2 in stock, but I've not bought anything from Spirit before, so I don't know how reliable they are.
  14. I've preordered Welcome to... as well, along with SteamRollers. We're on a bit of a Roll and Write kick at the moment, and are playing a lot of the dice versions of VivaJava and Castles of Burgundy, as well as Kokoro and Octodice. And there's a Print and Play called Welcome to DinoWorld, which is pretty good as-is, but is going to have an upgraded version going to Kickstarter soon. Yes, it's a nice, light deckbuilder, with some cool ideas and differentiation between the species, that makes each game feel different. Having said that, we don't tend to play it that often, an
  15. They've sent me some more codes, so pm me if you need one.
  16. Any format, I think. I'll DM you. (edit - it is definitely any format: PC, Xbox or PS4)
  17. I've got three spare codes too.
  18. Do it if you can afford it and want the experience, but don't assume that it will necessarily translate into sales. I worked on a game that was chosen for the PAX10 (so we didn't even have to pay for a booth), got loads of good attention there and then sold very poorly. I decided not to head over there too, as I couldn't really afford it at the time, and the money I made back from sales wouldn't have covered my costs.
  19. Bought, on PS4. Good luck with it. I fully expect to be as good at this as I was at Paradroid. (never got close to finishing the first ship)
  20. This is half price on PSN at the moment. Played a couple of hours of it last night and it's just as delightful as everyone has said.
  21. They're always released on the first Tuesday of the month.
  22. The thing I found, that was worth 11million, was some kind of plant too. I just sold it. Didn't even think to try and plant it.
  23. You weren't kidding about the ancient artefacts being lucrative. In about 60 hours my total earnings were about 2m units. I just sold a single ancient artefact for 11.6m.
