Agricola


Review Roundup

And we once more find ourselves deposited here in Saturday. Yayweekend! I've already had some good gaming going on. Got a game of Guild Ball in right after work last night. Masons (me) vs. Butchers (Ray). Technically speaking, I won. But really, I lost. Ray fudged his activation order on the last turn and it allowed me to win, 12-10 against his Butcher. But, really, he should've won 12-6 or 12-10. Masons don't like going against a team that negates armor and does extra damage.
As for today, got our first session of a new D&D game. Should be fun. Most of us haven't played 5th yet, so it'll be an interesting learning experience.
But that's as may be. I know you're really all here to check out the reviews.

Today we have: Sushi Go Party, Legends of Andor: Part II Journey to the North, Knightmare Live, Agricola: Family Edition, La Granja, Schotten-Totten, Heir to the Pharaoh, The Godfather: A New Don, Neuroshima Hex: Dancer Expansion, and Arcane Academy.
