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.

I like TTR whenever I play it, but if it's my choice id rather play something else in that time frame. My wife and nieces/nephew really like TTR so I do play it with some regularity. My favorite map is the Pennsylvania one. The stocks are a fun twist.

Re: all of the "I'd rather play something else" comments. Well, yea, I have about fifty other games that I would rather play but it doesn't stop me from enjoying TTR.

Splendor, a game you can play at a funeral.

Just played this on Monday. My wife, 10 year old, 16 year old and myself. The 8 year old just played with the spare trains, she not much of a boardgamer.

We had a good time, it plays pretty quick and it typically over before family bickering starts. We used the Big Cities cards so there was some pushing and shoving at the center of the board. My 16 year old typically wins and goes with the tried and true build as many 6 train routes as you can strategy. I always try for the tickets and more often than not move backwards on the points. But this time I had it, 6 routes completed- everyone else only had 2 at that most! Well right up to the point where my family pointed out that I never played a one route into Houston (this was one of those tickets you pull and are all confident that you already completed it when completing a different route)for a 8 point ticket. Putting me back to 1 point behind the 16 year old.

IT was a pleasant why to hang out with the family on a holiday Monday.
