    My daughter would love these! She's a regular player.

    The PC version for Colt Express isn't that great IMO - it's a straight mobile port.
  4. I bounced off this immediately I can totally see the why you dig it JFo, and even right from the beginning, it's clear there's a story with depth to it, but man, I have no interest in this sort of brutal platforming skill game any more. Totally a "it's not you, it's me" moment

    I finally walked through the "real" Dinosaur Island game, and did a practice run through. Lots of rules that are easy to miss or get wrong. Like a lot of recent games, the rule book really could do with an external unrelated professional overhaul. Define your phases, define your actions per phase, define the limits per phase. This is not a hard game to play, but the rule book tries its hardest to suggest otherwise I like the game though, and look forward to play it with real people. Got a cheap copy of the Harry Potter deckbuilder from someone locally, I think that'll work better than the Big Book of Madness for a co-op deckbuilder with my daughter. Big Book isn't bad, just fiddly & unbalanced to the extreme.

    Money you spent on gaming 2019

    Money you spent on gaming 2018

    $800, ouch. I'm sure I'm missing a bundle or two, but that's a pretty good summary for the year. Half of that was a X, so I guess overall I did okay. For 2019, I don't see me buying any new hardware, and I want to play more of what I already own or get access to through the likes of Game Pass, so it'll likely be a lot less. We shall see New thread to track 2019.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    Game Night - I think this got a little overhyped for me ahead of time - was expecting a frothy caper that got a little twisted, but it didn't get twisted enough for me. Funny, good performances by the leads, and definitely enjoyable, but I wanted even more of a Fincher darkness to it.

    Blockers - definitely a more sex positive spin on the American Pie "genre", from a new perspective, even if it's all relatively tame in the grand scheme of things, compared to its predecessors. But I enjoyed it.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    Catching up on a few movies. First up - Kingsmen - Golden Circle. Utterly pointless sequel missing almost all the charm & fun from the first movie, with a "twist" setting in Jack Daniels country that just takes away all of the class fight fun of the first. None of the new characters are interesting. The action scenes are messy. And the plot is dumb, even by dumb action movie standards. Some good laughs, some good moments, but man, a waste of great potential from the first movie that I loved.

    BTW I've got a spare steam key for the PC version of Twilight Struggle, one of the best two player board games out there. It's tough to learn, but it's a cracker of a cold war tug of war.

    I'd double check you got the rules right with a video or two. It's been a while since I played it, but from what I remember, doing well at Forbidden Island, like Pandemic, is a lot about managing danger, not eliminating it. You can't be all places on the board all the time, so that's the juggling decision.
