Come play board games... and card games... and pretty much any type of game. No RPG on a week night. Hope to see you there. We carry soda and chips typically. If you would like to bring something more feel free.

    In a six player variant especially, Smashup is really a light strategy card game where you are doing your best to surf the random wave. You can use smart card play and anticipation to partially mitigate bad luck and to get the most out of lucky breaks, bit that's the extent of it. Two and three player is quite a bit less chaotic because there are fewer counters and big cards out there, and you can count the cards more easily. Also, for a first timer things can seem chaotic because you're not as familiar with the factions. I'm glad you had an ok experience, I'd recommend trying two players to see if you like that better.

    I liked Smash Up. Rules-wise, it's a good game I think. However, I was disappointed in how overpowered all the cards are. It becomes impossible to make any plans and the game ends up being extremely random.

    Battlestar Galactica takes typically 3 hours. I'm bringing Rivals for Catan too, which takes anywhere between 45 min and 2h and it's for exactly 2 people.

      By the way, I can always cut the victory conditions for humans and cylons in half to shorten the game.

    I am interested in Smash Up and a couple of Steve's games. BG interests me too, but I just don't have the energy for a long game.

    Already have it in my car, also have Guildhall, like Dominion without deckbuilding and more direct interaction. and Caveman: Quest for Fire and Jab: Real time Boxing for 2. (no harrassing anyone to play my dueling game tonight)

    I'll try to make it this time, and bring Battlestar Galactica and Rivals for Catan.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
