What board games are you BUYING?
I worry it's a bit too Pandemic-y for my tastes, but the theme will definitely help the medicine go down if so. We'll see.
I like Horrified for sure, especially the contained mechanisms to defeat each monster, but I definitely felt it getting samey already after a couple of plays. That's of course the big challenge with a cooperative game.
It’s a pick up and deliver game.
Like, 100 percent. You ferry passengers around, take things to places where there is demand, set up possible routes, take advantage of shortcuts or effiency-enhancing abilities, etc.
It’s closer to Merchant of Venus than Pandemic. At first I was like “this is a super streamlined Arkham Horror”. But nope, it’s a train game. I wouldn’t be surprised if an easy draft of this game was a train game, or if the designers were thinking specifically of using PU&D mechanisms.
I love it...it’s good, simple fun and it is really challenging with three monsters. The last game we played was hysterical, we lost because somehow Frankenstein’s Monster just had it in for me. There was like two turns where that bastard was quite literally waiting outside of the hospital to clobber me as soon as I got out.
The little mini-objectives for the monsters are awesome.

Nice pickup. We're you looking, or just stumble across it?
It popped up in a Facebook CONSIM Marketplace post. I half remembered, maybe from here, that people liked the GW version.

I am determined to get it played this winter. It is just amazing at that dynasty creation aspect to create a vivid tapestry of a family's history. It is a tough sell at the time investment, but so worth it. I'd rather spend 6 hours with BR than TI4 for certain.
