Gaming in 2021 – Week 7: Insert Wooden Coins
Some digital gaming, some video gaming, and some board game inserts this week.
This article references the time between February 8th and February 14th, 2021.
On Friday I played Second Chance twice. I managed a win with a strategy of taking every big piece, but even then I got lucky with some of the pieces. The second game I didn’t do so well, but I still enjoyed it. I introduced a friend to Res Arcana, a fun engine-building game that has very high acceleration. I won, but with the starter decks, so we’ll see how the rematch goes. Finally, I introduced a friend to Board Game Arena and we did a game of Sushi Go and I taught her Can’t Stop. It’s nice being able to play games with friends.
I finished Cyber Shadow and while it was good, I thought that it didn’t quite live up to my expectations based on how much I liked Shovel Knight. Maybe I just enjoy the character and story behind Shovel Knight more.
No new games this week. Trying to get more games that I already own to the table.
I’ve cleaned up a bit of my game room and spent a few days putting together inserts. First was the Sagrada insert from Broken Token. It’s a well-done insert, though it’s gonna be difficult to fit much more into that box.
