When I arrived at Hypermind Tuesday evening, Alton and I sat down to a 2 player game of Carcassonne 10th Anniversary Edition.
Alton and I have played this game 3 times before, together. Each time, I won the game.
Well, this time, Alton was trying some nice tactical moves, but in the end I prevailed. So, as far as the count goes, I’m undefeated against him.
Better luck next time, Alton!
Next, Sean, Alton, Tom, and Josh joined me in a 5 player game of Ascension: Return Of The Fallen.
This game lasted quite a while, and other players kept stopping by our table to see if we were “done” yet. One of the reasons it took so long was there were a couple of people who have not played the expansion much, and they were still trying to learn the cards I didn’t mind, however, because I love this game.
I happen to win this game too, but not by much. It was close all the way around.
After that, we cracked open my newest game that i got called Zombie Fluxx.
This game can take anywhere from 10-40 minutes to play. We opted to playa couple hands while waiting for Chris Norwood to show up.
The first hand lasted about 5-10 minutes with Josh inadvertently playing a card that game Alton the win.
The second game was going quite a bit longer and I think Alton finally just gave me the win with his play so I could move on to my next came, since Chris Norwood had arrived by then.
This was my first time playing Carnival and I was hooked!
A couple of friends (Chris Kirman and Cherilyn Kirkman) from the Durham, NC area created and produced this game. I knew they were going to put it on the Kickstarter web site, and I wanted to give it a try before I actually put forth a pledge to back the project.
This game is worth the money and I highly recommend you back it on Kickstarter. You won’t be sorry. This is a nice little game, and both Chris and Cherilyn did an awesome job with the concept, and development of the prototype.
