Jason’s Board Game Collection – Unplayed Games #1
As I work my way through the list of games, I will be making posts like this to make note of games that I haven’t played yet. I will also be noting if I plan to play them and/or any other thoughts I have on them. They won’t be full reviews, though.
Advanced Civilization/Civilization – I picked this up earlier this year, and it’s been high on my list to play. It’s difficult to find 5 to 7 people who have 6+ hours to play, though, so I’ve not had a lot of luck getting this to the table. I found a website at rol-play.com and joined 3 online games there. I’ve discovered that I’m terrible at it, but that’s ok. It’s a fun game, but I’m leaning toward this one not making it to the table. I think I’d rather play 2 or 3 shorter games with friends.
Advanced Heroquest – I loved HeroQuest in my youth. It was one of my first introductions into RPGs and board games. Over the years, it was replaced by Warhammer Quest and more recently Descent Second Edition. Advanced Heroquest was traded to me by a friend a few years ago, and I’ve never gotten around to playing it. I’m not sure it’ll ever make it to my table, but I like the look of it on my shelf.
I would love to hear peoples’ opinions on these two games, as I’d be happy to play them, but I really want to optimize my gaming this year.
