An afternoon's entertainment

There Will Be Games

After weeks of missed gaming, I finally was well enough and free enough to get together with some friends and have an afternoon of gaming.  We played Cosmic Encounter (FFG Version), Once Upon A Time and God Dice and Citadels (not finished).

 Of the four, I had the most fun playing God Dice.  It's a seriously fun game, whose only let down is the number of players.  I can't wait for an expansion to come out to let more players in, because I can easily see us playing this game as a filler quite, quite often.  Set-up time is  minimal, it's incredibly easy to teach and it's fun, fun, fun.  

Cosmic Encounter continues to underwhelm me.  It's not a bad game, it's just something I crave.  I'll play it but it just doesn't do much for me.  I do like the introduction of tech cards to the game, it does add a bit more strategy but it's still only okay.

Once  Upon a Time  is definitely an interesting and unique game.  Depending on the players and mood, it can be really good or mediocre.  We weren't in that much of a mood to be silly, so the game was relatively serious for once, with no sudden deaths but lots of plot reversals.

 My biggest disappointment was that we didn't get Warhammer : Chaos in the Old World onto the table.  I so want to try that.
