    I haven't played it myself but I've been eying it on multiple occasions, and looked up a lot of things about it online, etc. Seems like it'd be a ton of fun. I know many of the board game channels on YouTube have covered it quite extensively. They might be able to give you a very fair review.

    Yeah played it plenty of time, have not played expandion yet.

    Fun game with some interesting mechanisms.

    Its in a cool niche called "semi co-op" where people have to help the group but also have secret selfish objectives.

    Has a semi random story telling mechanism which adds a lot of flavor.

    I recommend using the optional traitor mechanism. Personally i think the game is WAY to easy without the traitor. But our group tends to crush co op games fairly liberally, so maybe its harder for less experienced gamers. Aside from difficulty, the social deduction element of trying to expose the traitor (or secretly destroy the group) is the best part of the game.

    So, I recently purchased Twilight Struggle on steam, and it's excellent. I haven't played the TT version but I hear it's a little time-consuming due to all of the game mechanics one must keep track of. However, I'm loving it on steam and am happy to play anytime! I'd imagine the TT version is still pretty freaking neat.

    I'd be up for a game if you are interested. I've played a bit now but still learning.

    Nice - hit me up sometime on steam. I have played all of one game so far but really enjoyed it! I'll likely be looking for a game later in the week so may shoot you a random invite if you're around.

    My group just played it for the first time on the Sunday just gone, it was great fun although we took ages playing it due to learning it, ended up losing when we were just 1 tool away from completeing the main objective and everything went down hill when 4 survivors died in one turn.

    Yes we played it once here as well. Really easy to snowball whole game if couple of them die. Full co-op is bit too easy without hardcore main objective.

    Agreed, we have a good time and are going to play again this Sunday coming up, we didn't get a traitor this time but it will be interesting the first time we do get one.

    I was going to ask you to give me your run down in Kingdom Death, I missed the first Kickstarter by a few hours and regretted it ever since, we discussed this before I believe. Obviously I've gone in heavily for this one, there's so much content coming over the next few years for this game.

    Sadly I'm not in the realms of being able to go all in, though if they re-open the pledge manager again before wave4 then I'll add some more to my rather extensive pledge thus far, I did know this Kickstarter was coming though and thus pulled some presents and cash together in advance so I've got Core+ chest+ Gorm+ Spidicules+ Flower Knight+ Dung Beetle Knight+ Honey Comb Weaver+ Oblivion Mosquito+, screaming god+, Abyssal Woods + Death Armour. Giving 8-10 (HCW & AW have dual) new Quarries, 6 new Nemesis and 6+ Encounters. That's a pretty big investment for a game I've never played that's for sure!

    Anyone know where I can source a copy of Gloomhaven? I've been let down and my pre-release order was cancelled by the retailer due to insufficient stock, I doubt I'll be able to get one but I thought I'd put it out there.

    Friend just picked up "Vast: The crystal caverns"

    Very unique game with purely asymmetric game play for each player, yet still a tonne of player interaction. Worth checking out for those who have time.

    I assume you know about it but just in case Gloomhaven is back on kickstarter.

    Is it any good? I am eyeing it a long time...
    I just picked up Rising Sun. Sounds cool and looks very nice, but the release is April 2018. I can't wait already!!!
