Play Board Games! Featuring Alien Frontiers!

This week we will feature two different worker placement games! First, Josh will teach us Alien Frontiers and when I show up at 7, I'll give Yedo a whirl!

Do you have what it takes to be a deep space colonist? An alien frontier awaits the brave and daring! This new planet will be harsh, but if you have the skills to manage your resources, build a fleet, research alien life, and settle colonies, the world can be yours.

Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management and planetary development for two to four players. During the game you will utilize orbital facilities and alien technology to build colony domes in strategic locations to control the newly discovered world.

The game board shows the planet, its moon, the stations in orbit around the planet, and the solar system’s star. The dice you are given at the start of the game represent the space ships in your fleet. You will assign these ships to the orbital facilities in order to earn resources, expand your fleet, and colonize the planet.

In the strategy game Yedo, players assume the roles of Clan Elders in the city of Edo during the early years of the Tokugawa Shogunate. The object of the game is to amass Prestige Points, mainly by completing missions. To do so, players must gather the necessary assets and – most importantly – outfox their opponents and prevent them from completing their missions.

    We played "Cinques Terres", which was lots of fun.

    Alien Frontiers was amazingly fun, despite my poor performance. Loved the quick round of Dixit.

      Agreed! Both games were a lot of fun. Bunnies! (or squirrels if you prefer)

    I'm watching the video, too. Hey, everyone make sure to get your FREE coffee today before game time at WAWA around the corner from the library -- 50th birthday, all size coffees are free. :-)

      On the downside, I'm older than WAWA. :-( Only by a few months, though...!
