  1. I’m glad people are buying Kine, because I wanted to but often when I’m the only forumite buying something it’s a bad decision:)
  2. Hi everyone, with this lockdown in full effect, and my regular games group seeming to only own a mishmash of android phones, old computers and pen and paper (although we did manage to play Food Chain Magnate and 7 wonders last weekend), I would like to play some fun async games online. I know we've got a 'board games gone digital' thread, but I thought this could be more for organising games and sharing usernames etc. First, I've created a group on BoardGameArena here: https://boardgamearena.com/group?id=3796376 If anybody's interested I'd love to play Keyflower, Terra Mystica, Tzolkin, Lewis and Clark or Lords of Xidit on there. For other game specific sites http://play.boardgamecore.net/main.jsp has Food Chain Magnate www.mabiweb.com has Nations (although it is also unsecure, so use a one off password) All of which I'd be happy to play, are free, and work well async. I've also got the Through the Ages App, my username is marksp and Agricola, my username is therearerules I have other apps, but I'm not sure how well they'd work async. And if those games above don't tickle your boat please suggest others, because I'd love to play pretty much anything at the moment.
  3. Okay I’m trying to like this game, but Jesus Christ. When it’s saving what does it actually save, because I appear to have just lost an hour of gameplay by loading last checkpoint after the game repeatedly saved on the excursion. And why is there so much crap to pick up? And am I okay to sell everything? All I really want to do is climb enemies and fire arrows. Also what’s a good level for under the well?
  4. Do I need to read the manual, or will it all be explained in game?
  5. I just bought this on the Switch and did what I presume was the tutorial? If so that was the worst tutorial ever! I had no idea what I was doing or why, what any of the numbers or bars meant, and I don’t even think my attacks landed on the Chimera boss.
  6. I've downloaded them all, including going premium on Boardgamearena. Had a great game of 6 nimmt against work colleagues on one of there birthdays, but that's it. Anybody fancy a game of something, anything, online? Or even on the apps.
  7. It feels like it should be worth it, but the final ending ending felt so inconsequential I'd say no? But parts of the journey were great. It's one of those shows where it would have been amazing if they'd got the ending right, but honestly if you're not enjoying it now give up.
  8. Now we’re social distancing I’m investigating these- which is better? do you have to pay for all games separately? do they have voice chat? can people observe games? just generally how do they work?
  9. Really glad I didn't book a room, but genuinely upset at the massive spanner in the works this has thrown in for Die of the Dead. I'm probably going to postpone the KS to get it done after the UKGE, but to be honest everything's up in the air. Who knows when the China backlog will be cleared, or when people will be happy backing again.
  10. I might have to get TTS now, given the social nature of gaming
  11. Looks like a Factorio clone, https://factorio.com, have you played that?
  12. I played it recently, but got bored before anything too taxing happened.
  13. Boom boom boom folks, Airecon today whoop whoop! Won’t be there until late afternoon, got James on the stand in the meantime. Great gathering of gamers in Major Tom’s last night too!
