  1. Fondue


    Hey folks So it turns out Stella Cidre no longer exists, and I was going to get some in over Christmas (my dad and I both like it - not sure how it's become a Fondue Christmas Tradition though). Is there any cider out there that has a similar taste? Or do I need to go crazy and buy lots to try (no hardship)?
  2. I bought this in the Switch E-shop sale and, though I've only played for about an hour, really enjoying the rather insane nature of it. And I'm still not entirely sure I know what's happening! So many questions! How do I up my carry limit (or whatever it is)? If i try switching characters in battle instead they seem to do a massive load of hits to everyone on screen - what's that about? Are there good character combinations? ARGH!
  3. I just finished A Little Hatred too - but really really wish I'd reread the earlier books first. Whilst the story in it doesn't rely at all on prior knowledge, I'd forgotten some of the characters and relationships from the First Law and I'd have gotten more out of it, I reckon. At least I know what I'm reading next!
  4. Ah! Thanks! I'll sorry about that if I get anywhere near a good run on ascension 1!
  5. So I finally got a winning run on all three characters now (really digging the defect at the mo) but not sure what these 'keys' are for that have now appeared. Any explanation would be appreciated!
  6. It's on BBC Iplayer too (with proper commentary!)
  7. Though I've not tried it, I imagine Wingspan probably has a decent solo game - Stonemaier seem to spend a good amount of resources on their Automa system (basically a pack of cards that simulate another player). There are also some good dedicated solo games that I've heard of; Mr Cabbagehead's Garden & Coffee Roaster are two I've heard good things recently about. Ones I have played myself and enjoyed are Terraforming Mars and Glass Road. I believe most Uwe Rosenberg games have a 1 player variant, but unless you enjoy the base game (as I do with Glass Road) and enjoy a high-score challenge, they usually feel like something is missing (i.e. other players!). I do play online games regularly too - especially on Yucata.de as it hosts several games I really enjoy and can play in near-realtime (other sites like BoardGameArena are real time), and still get to play against real people rather than a deck of cards or an AI. I would echo some of the other folk on here - it can be hard to meet new people, but as SimonC says above (I go to the same club), if other clubs are like ours, an evening gaming there is super welcoming - we've had several people come along for the first time and we've welcomed them, and not put any "social pressure" on them - we're all there to enjoy a game first and foremost. Also, there are some good places to find more about single player games, e.g. SoloMode Games on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVkbOlQJZExa5JDJFMcIkLw/videos
  8. When would you have to use the artifact to prevent the loss? Just before the end of the turn in which it gets removed?

    Just cracked open a bottle of this... It's very drinkable indeed!
  10. I love Crypt, but am terrible at playing it unless I play as the Bard - sure, it kind of goes against he spirit of the game, but means I can then treat the game more as standard Roguelike. I've definitely got to zone 3 a bunch, and I think zone 4 a couple of times. Doubt I'd make it out of the first zone if I had to hit the beats though!
