  1. A while back, I toyed with the idea of making a custom Defender controller for Retropie. I got as far as pricing up the buttons and a Picade X-Hat from Pimoroni and bought some MDF, and I redrew the layout from http://www.arcadecontrols.com/images/defendcp.gif in Illustrator, but never got round to building it. Might go back to it at some point.
  2. I can fully understand that – it's not everybody's cup of tea.
  3. I'm not sure to be honest, but obviously tastes vary and everybody is different. Cardhu is pretty well-regarded though, and is a very typical Speyside.
  4. Besides the usual party game nonsense, have also managed to play: Root: Had quite a few games of this, with 2 and 3 players. Can be confusing at first, but once you get to grips with it, it's really engaging. Benefits from exploring it multiple times with the same group of players. Really looking forward to a 4 player game. Modern Art: Feels like there's not much to it at first, but is really thinky once you get into it. Great fun. Blitzkrieg!: Billed as "WWII in 20 minutes", but that's a bit of a stretch (it does play in 20 mins, but doesn't really evoke the feeling of a war game). Not bad, probably need to play it some more to appreciate it. Wingspan: Really liked this a lot, and the components are fantastic. Escape The Dark Castle: Enjoyable romp – you turn over cards that represent rooms in a castle you're trying to escape from. Mostly involves just rolling dice to fight monsters, but also has some elements of the "Choose your own adventure" books.
  5. I think this is one of the wrongest things I’ve ever read on the entire internet.
  6. Especially since they just found it lying around, down a hole that they’d randomly happened to fall into.
  7. I thought it was pretty good, on the whole. But I have some questions: How come they happened to be standing in the exact spot for the dagger outline to work? If it’s ancient dagger, how does it have the outline of the wreckage on it anyway? If Rey can hover, why does she have to make a perilous climb inside the wreckage? How come Palpatine is still alive after the Death Star blew up, and when did he have children? Why did the Star Destroyers all fall out of the sky at the end?
  8. Thanks for the heads up. Got a cracking bargain with Nusfjord.
  9. I noticed it on the Gameslore new releases page for next week, but I’d imagine it’s available from other places as well. https://www.gameslore.com/acatalog/PR_Awkward_Guests_Board_Game.html#SID=352
  10. Awkward Guests is available via retail next week.
  11. This and Cardhu Gold seem to be on a cycle, where a different supermarket has one or both of them on offer every week. I’d imagine people have stopped buying them at full price, because they know they’ll be on offer somewhere else.
  12. When I played Scythe, part of me resented that it tricked me into playing a game with mech miniatures by the promise of a worker-placement Eurogame.
  13. Ticket To Ride: Nordic Countries is good for two players.
