We played a good number of games Thursday, and I played all of mine with Chris and Jeff. It went surprisingly well, and we didn’t get into too much analysis paralysis. The first game I got out front with some really strategic plays and stayed there. I was also able to get a massive last turn that put me way out front. Chris got second by one point, just barely nudging out Jeff.
In dungeon dice, I was nice at one point and that came back to get me. I should have just been mean and let them take damage, but oh well. I enjoyed it, but it was a little short. There wasn’t time to build up a character and enjoy the abilities, because the game only goes to 4 points. It also doesn’t make sense to go past that since the monsters don’t get harder as your character gets better. I like the mechanics, but it seemed to be missing something in depth.
As always I liked playing Gauntlet of Fools. That is one game that never seems to get old. We played two rounds with Paul winning the first, then Chris and I tied on the second.
