Think this is the most buildings I've managed to get on Kingsburg! Sometimes you need a bit of dice chucking in your life! . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #BoardGameGeek #GameNight #TableTopGames #IPlayRed

On my way to LieraCon on Thursday so seemed appropriate to play Lisbon Tram 28 from @mebogames Drive your trams around town, picking up passengers and dropping them off at tourist spots so now I know what I need to go and see! . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGames #GameNight #BoardGameGeek #IPlayRed

Conquest of the Fallen Lands - this is an older game I never hear enough talk about! We love it here and it was great to pull it out again . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #GameNight #BoardGameGeek #IPlayRed

Offered to tach Newton from @craniocreations_official to someone next weekend then realised it had been a while since we played so dug it out for a refresh! I'm a big fan of this style of limited turn games. So much to do in not enough time, tough choices have to be made! . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGames #EuroGames #GameNight #BoardGameGeek #TableTop #IPlayRed

It's official! I finally decided that while I love Rococo, I really don't like the aesthetic on the reprint. I find the gold thimbles on the patterns hard to see and telling the pink and orange apart can be tough. With a horizontal board there just isn't the grandeur of going to the rooftop for fireworks. Sticking to my old copy that cost 25 euroes lol . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #BoardGaming #GameNight #EuroGames #BoardGameGeek #IPlayRed

This year I will be featuring a small box game every week for FILLER FRIDAY! Today we are looking at Maskmen from @oinkgms Players: 2-6 Time: 20 mins Maskmen is a smart combination of trick taking and logic puzzle! Play between 1-3 cards to establish who is the stronger wrestler, the faster you get rid of your cards, the faster you win! Gain belts for getting rid of all your cards, if you are the last person left in a round you get -1 :( . . . . . #TableTopGames #GameNight #BoardGames #TrickTaking #BoardGameGeek #TableTopGaming #IPlayRed

Finally got to play Bitoku from @devirgames wow, there is a lot going on with this, both in terms of artwork and gameplay! Honestly, it didn't 'mesh' together for me, but I certainly didn't hate it! Definitely need some more plays before making any definite decisions on it . . . . . #TableTopGames #GamesNight #BoardGaming #TableTopGaming #BoardGameGeek #EuroGames #IPlayRed

Sometimes the 'classics' are that just for a reason! The original London from Martin Wallace is one of those games that still gets pulled out often here (even though we have lost a red token, hence the random blue one!) Not a fan of the recent version of this - if it aint broke, don't fix it!!! . . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #GameNight #EuroGames #BoardGameGeek #TableTopGames #IPlayRed

This is one of those games I never hear talked about! Riverboat from Michael Kiesling is amazing! I'm a huge fan of these 'limited turn' games. Each player gets five actions a round over a total of just four rounds, every action counts! . . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #GameNight #EuroGames #BoardGameGeek #TableTopGames #BoardGaming #IPlayRed

Village from the fabulous Inka and Markus Brand. I remember being so precious with my workers the first time I played this, now I kill them off with impunity! . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #GamesNight #BoardGameGeek #EuroGames #BoardGaming #TableTopGames #IPlayRed

Gotta love a bit of beige euro goodness! Thurn and Taxis still gets a lot of love from us here. Build routes, place post offices and claim bonus tiles for filling an area. Think this is now on a few digital platforms but I messed up so badly that I'll stick to this version please! . . . . . #BoardGames #TableTopGames #BoardGaming #TableTopGaming #EuroGames #BoardGameGeek #IPlayRed

For a long time I had in my head that Five Tribes didn't work well at two, not sure why. I am now pleased to say this thought has now been vanquished and we are enjoying it again! . . . . #BoardGames #GameNight #TabletopGaming #BoardGameGeek #TableTopGames #IPlayRed

Yesterdays deliveries were sponsored by the letter 'A'!! We shall be looking at Alice in Worldland from @drawlab (while the deluxe edition is on Kickstarter - go and check it out!)

Hadara from @zmangames_ We really enjoy this engine builder as an alternative to 7 Wonders if there's only the two of us! Thought it was a tie, then checked my maths and Rob had eeked the win by one point! (next time I'm not checking!!) . . . . #BoardGames #GameNight #TableTopGames #BoardGameGeek #TableTopGaming #IPlayRed

Suffrage from @athenaspel just arrived and I am so excited to look at this! I'm ashamed to say I don't know enough about the Suffragette movement so hoping to learn from this. You get to play as one of six historical figures with the different coloured meeples representing the different groups of campaigners. Looks like I've got some reading to do! . . . . . #TableTopGames #BoardGames #TableTopGaming #BoardGameGeek #GameNight #IPlayRed

Lions of Lydia from @bellwethergames is great! Simple ruleset, meaningful decisions, and just look at those gorgeous coins! (Gosh, I seem to be all about component quality these days!)

Finally got Gutenburg from @grannagry to the table, love the cog action mechanism, and look at these gorgeous type components! I'm really enjoying these tight, low turn Euroes at the moment!

This year I will be featuring a small box game every week for FILLER FRIDAY! Today we are looking at Silver & Gold from @nsv.de Players: 2-4 Time: 20mins Played over four rounds, draw a shape card for the round and players mark it off on their island cards. Gain points by filling up rows of coins, completing your islands and bonuses as shown on the top right. Really like these roll and writes with wipe-able cards meaning there's never any waste.
