Social, Fun (sometimes drinking) Games

By David and Helen / October 11, 2018

So, our two adult sons enjoy social games that are fun to play, easy to pick up and able to cater for a group.  We have played Werewolf with them before (and enjoyed it). When we purchased Seriously Board, they asked whether we sold Cards against Humanity.  We did not stock it… but we do…

Caverna adventures

By David and Helen / October 4, 2018

We enjoy roleplaying as well as playing board games. At present we play 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons every Sunday evening. I play a dwarven cleric named Bronaugh. We played Caverna recently and I loved the adventuring aspect that is so familiar to all roleplayers. Caverna is a worker placement game like Agricola. It has…

Agricola is less smelly

By David and Helen / September 27, 2018

We live in the foothills of Pirongia Maunga (mountain). We raise pigs and care for goats, chickens, dogs and cats. This morning when I was feeding our pigs, I began to think of the similarities and differences between raising animals and playing Agricola. For one thing Agricola is less tiring and certainly less smelly. It…

We’ve played: Eclipse

By DaveandNat / February 4, 2018

Eclipse is a very highly rated grand strategy epic game of galactic domination that combines a great engine building mechanic with tactical star battles. This is a true 4X game – eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate. It combines epic scale, civilisation building with a limited round count that ensures the game can never go on…

We’ve played: Caverna: Cave vs Cave

By DaveandNat / September 17, 2017

This new game has just made it into our collection after Nat once again came walking up the stairs holding it with a half guilty look and the usual “the shrinkwrap just fell off” excuse … I swear the number of games we have with weak shrink wrap almost defies belief. Anyway, as big fans…
