Dark Horse is a board game set in the Wild West. The game puts one to four players in the role of a unique character in charge of a small territory in the old west. The characters have various abilities that give them advantages in the game. Using dice in a worker placement mechanic, each player collects and uses various resources to build towns, cities, and rails to grow their territories.
Rebels & Rogues adds real historical figures, and a morality like mechanic. Where you can be bad and do things like robbing others, or be good and help your towns out. Or maybe you just want a gunfight.

A gift card for Bluegrassmagic Game Shop will be given away.  Amount based on number of entries.  Entries are one dollar.  This isn't a mandatory fee.  Playing games is free but only those who donate will be entered into the drawing.

And don't forget to pick up a rewards card.  Attend meetups at Bluegrass and get stamps toward a 25% discount on board games.  The best deal in the city!

    In playing board games to work up appetites for Thanksgiving, we rocked some epic games yesterday. We began the day with the feature game, Dark Horse, and Smash Up. My Cthulhu Bears and Jonathan's Alien Pirates were no match for Suzanne's Robot Dinos. Moving on to a game Suzanne's been wanting to try, Thunderstone Advance, it was a game that lasted too long which I attribute to playing with five. Learned my lesson and I hope Suzanne will give it another shot with three players sometime (unless she just really didn't like the game).

      There was a longer game, A Game of Thrones. Crystal maintained her dominance and proves this is not a boys club! Got to break out Marvel Legendary again. We got demolished by Mephisto and his use of the Cosmic Cube mainly due to a bad draw of several Master Strikes and many villains escaping early on. finally, maintained my streak of winning Lost Legends, barely. Jed was one point behind me but a win is a win! Also viewed: two games of Yedo; Love Letter; Alhambra; Spartacus.

    What's everyone into for tomorrow? I'd like to give Eldritch Horror a shot. Who else would be interested? Being that it may be a longish game I would wanna start by four. Lemme know. :)

    I'll be demo'ing Dark Horse. And showing off it's expansion Rebels & Rogues, which is currently on kickstarter, but you can get the base game on that kickstarter as well. It's a mix of catan like building and kingsburg dice placement. Dark Horse was one of the earliest kickstartered games. If interested in seeing it in motion, both Tom Vassel and Rahdo have done videos
