Hi, how are you all?
Today I've been playing some strategy board games.

The first game was about placing caravans in a desert... Quite interesting actually.
You scored for reaching oazes and water holes. And you could surround an empty area for extra points too.

Then we played a game where you explore islands. It's almost like Carcassonne but with money and a ship. Also, you explore native tribes on the islands... Very much fun.

After that we started talking about Pratchett, and roleplaying. Weapon proficiency: small creatures.
When fighting enemies is a bad idea, you can put them in a bag of holding instead...

Eh, so. Yeah... gnigth.

Strategy board games. I strongly reccomend trying Diplomacy. It'll take you the better part of a day to play, but it's a lot of fun. And strategic. And diplomatic.

Bah, Cults Across America ftw!
(Torp still has my undying gratitude for enabling me to get hold of this awesome game)

Where else can you arm your cultists to the teeth with knives, guns, big honkin' trucks and Cthulhu backing up the rear, only to find out that some utter bastard annihilates your best units with his Cosmic Ray Gun, and another player's made the ambassador from Urugay assasinate the Pope?
Good times indeed. :D

Mouse trap owns all.

If you like Diplomacy, try the recently released PC interpretation. It's like someone tried to make the worst Diplomacy game ever, and succeeded (sentence ripped from the GameSpy guy reviewing it).

On topic:
Today me and a friend were supposed to see the Triad-movie Young and Dangerous 2, but he had forgotten it somewhere else. We went to get it, but we were delayed by the person living where my friend had forgotten the film who wanted us to see his awesome Warhammer 40K conversions (they were awesome). After that we didn't have time to watch the movie. So we didn't.
After that I went home for supper. Then I went to my Ving Tsun training. I need to practice my Tan-Sau to Bong-Sau transitions, or so my teacher said.
Then I went home and raided AQ40. We sucked today.

What did you do today?

We're not talking digital here. And you are making the thread unbland.

BTW, there is a lemon flavored Lipton Ice Tea standing on my desk. I didn't put it there. Perhaps it was my cousin. She was here in the weekend.

In terms of strategy, Diplomacy is infinitely better. It's been praised as the multiplayer equivilant of chess. Only now you all move at the same time.

Now that would be an interesting form of chess. Both players write his move down, and then they reveal and do the moves simultaneously.

It depends on the lemonade and ice tea. And my assertion that from a tactical viewpoint, Diplomacy is infinitely better than CAA, is objectively true. CAA is a great and very funny game, but in it, luck with the dice or random happenings can change everything. In Diplomacy, you need to have your eyes on the overall goal from the start, you need to use every single of your scarce resources to the max, and you need to create coalition and alliances with the other players, because each player, by himself, is too weak to do much.

I'm gonna go buy the game and take it with me next time I visit Talhoffer, to prove it's strategic superiority.
