Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

× Use the stickied threads for short updates.

Please consider adding your quick impressions and your rating to the game entry in our Board Game Directory after you post your thoughts so others can find them!

Please start new threads in the appropriate category for mini-session reports, discussions of specific games or other discussion starting posts.

As many as it will take to keep the lights on and manufacture the oldest ones that are outstanding.

You can also pledge the original/ stretch goal stuff too.


With 15 days still to go it has 25,700 supporters, might even pass the nearly 42,000 Tainted Grail got and will definitely pass the 32,500 the first Nemesis project got. Awaken Realms is certainly doing the business, they know their market and what it wants.

Not everything they do is up my alley, but in general they put out high quality games. Lords of Hellas and Nemesis are great.

I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of their "hey let's design stretch goals together!" shtick. No thanks, I'd rather leave it to the professionals, not a band of entitled fanboys.

Yeah, every time I see that I think of the kids focus group on THE SIMPSONS that produced Poochy, the failed sidekick to Itchy and Scratchy.

I backed the Brave New Worlds Kickstarter of STL files for a post-apocalyptic terrain set. Time to start all over on my Gaslands terrain.
It was kind of expensive (probably not really in reality) but I think it’ll be worth it in the long run. The KS pieces are more highly detailed, and more densely packed with detail than the free stuff you can find on Thingiverse. I just got tired of tables that just had tiny terrain pieces all over it. These will let me make more hefty scenes and something more bespoke. I particularly like the crashed plane . I could build and theme a whole table around this. Already started printing it and it looks fantastic.

Holding steady on the Nemesis Core bundle, possibly with Carnomorphs and likely Sundrop since it’s become clear that I’m too lazy to paint my figures. The Lockdown features look interesting but I’m a newbie and it seems like the original has more than enough material to occupy me for awhile. Besides, I think I prefer the OG Alien setting.

I think the plant-based enemy they added for Nemesis looks really cool.

I'm definitely in for the Nemesis core in Sundrop ('cos I can't paint and my painter mates all say they have too many of their own to do :angry: ) with maybe the Terrain box, and am on the fence about Lockdown - I'm in agreement that I will probably have more than enough gaming with Nemesis Core but if it looks different enough I may be stupid enough to get it (because in 15 months time having and not wanting is better than wanting and not having :whistle: ).

I’m considering Terraforming Mars.

I don’t need a bunch of plastic tiles to enjoy the game, but they look neat.

Isn’t it something like $400 for everything? That’s -ludicrous-. The game has always had garbage components but does anyone really need all this?

It's $79 plus shipping for the Small Box of just the 3D tiles and promos. That seems roughly what others charge for 3D tile sets on Etsy.

I mostly just want some extra cutout layers on the player board so my cubes don't fly all over the fucking place. We like TERRAFORMING MARS but this is the biggest pain in the ass. It's like someone looked at ECLIPSE and said, "yeah, that except easier to ruin."

The copy I got as a gift from a huge enthusiast family member (his copy his group didn't play anymore) has those two level boards and they are virtually essential imo
