I've just discovered Splendor (they clearly didn't bother with English localisation) and am finding it a great little game of tactics, backstabbing and frustration. It's certainly one I'd reccommend.

What's the weather like in Leeds. I'm led to believe publications of this kind are weather dependant. If there is a chance of getting sand and suntan lotion all over it, the likelihood of it appearing on shelves is greater. Probably next to the Fab lollies, under the Spangles.

What about if it's cold, grey, miserable and pissing it down?

It's still cold and grey in Leeds, but the rain has stopped and I've got my grubby mitts on a copy.

Telling me where you bought it might have been helpful, no?

Not really, it's a digital copy.  ;)

What a great start to the new Dredd story. Can't wait to see how this one pans out.

Is this coming to digital or do I need to hunt down a paper copy?

Cool!  Timothy - is that tin reasonably robust, and roughly how big is it?  Where did you get yours from, Otter, and roughly how much?

I'm afraid I can't help there; it's the iOS version that I play. Cheaper and easier to set up. From what I've heard though the tin's pretty good.

Forbidden Island

I have this in the post on the way to me. Your thoughts?

I think it's a great game. It can be very hard on the higher difficulties, but it's a fun game, and one which kids can pick up very easily.

Hmmm. Comics theme = good. Dice = bad in my book. My euro stylee tastes don't favour the randomness they bring. If I lose, which I usually do, I like to blame myself rather than the roll of the dice. Still, I may be wrong and will await your report with interest.

I've only recently started reading the prog again, after a gap of some years. Given limited space in the house I've gone digital, which is usually fine. This week though, I'm unable to appreciate that wraparound cover on my idevice. Stupid bloody technology.

...it's quite expensive and I don't think I'd get much opportunity to play it.

That's always the equation alright: I don't mind taking a punt on something cheap with the possibility that I won't get to play it more than once, but when you're looking at the higher price stuff I need to know that I'm going to be playing it at least several times a year, for a few years at least.  Otherwise it just becomes embarrassing, a big box sitting there on the shelf reminding you of your foolishness.

That said, on Saturday I saw copies of Carcassonne and Catan in a regular toy shop  - I've heard of such things in other lands, but never here.  Got to be good news, set against the tide of tablet-and-phone-based games.
I find that tablet and phone games have really boosted my interest in boardgaming. There are some great conversions out there at a fraction of the price of their cardboard equivalents. I've often used ios conversions to test the water with an unknown game before buying the "proper" set for the family.

Hearthstone is taking over my life at the moment. The daily challenges and the arena mean that I've little time for my other board game loves of agricola and carcassonne.

Drum roll please......


Sorry for the delay in posting - I wanted to leave it as late as possible and then I got drunk and fell asleep.
