Re: Coronavirus

The government have stopped counting people who die 28 days after a positive test. So people that die on ventilators are no longer counted. Dodgy.

Re: Strategy Board Games

Gloomhaven is a brilliant one player game, expensive but well worth getting. There is a new smaller game being released soon Jaws of the Lion if you dont fancy playing 100 scenarios! The classic Twilight Imperium is a stunning game but you need at least four players with some experience to play it ...

Re: Strategy Board Games

Another good one is Betrayal at the House on the Hill. Starts as a co-op game and ends up being a 1 vs the rest. I own this game but will probably sell it. I find the second act to be a bit fiddly and not keen on reading rules each time I play. I would give it more of a chance but my wife doesn't l...

Marvel Champions is supposed to be a great solo game from last year and you do like your Marvel films now.

Re: Strategy Board Games

Yeah I've had Pandemic for years. It's a good game to get people into the hobby.

Horrified is supposed to be quite a simple game so I may get it to play with my son when he's older.

I've bought Spirit Island which is supposed to be the best co-op.

The Sweet's bassist Steve Priest has passed away. RIP. Great band. Unique sound in the glam era.

Re: Strategy Board Games

My parents are obsessed with Catan, always play it with them when I go to visit. I got them the Seafarers expansion pack a while ago, which makes the games much better. They also recently got Ticket To Ride which I've played with them and the grandkids, and it seems great fun. My dad is currently o...

Re: Next Announcement

So if you want a refund, seetickets require you to send the tickets back to them (fair enough) but also want you to include a copy of the email they sent you as well. I don't have a printer but fortunately a friend of mine was able to print it off and pop it through the letterbox on his way home. P...

I might be wrong but I think that got downgraded in the end. Possibly to the tufnell park Dome.
