    It still manages to catch me by surprise almost every time

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Anyone here got any experience of playing in Pandemic: Survival competitions? Daughter and I might try this at the Expo this year (she wants a change from 7 Wonders Duel!) but we're quite new to Pandemic tbh having acquired it at last year's Expo - will we just get completely creamed? Do we need to have experience of anything other than the base game?

    What are you playing?

    Got in some quality game time with my daughter this weekend. Spread a full-length game of Western Legends across a couple of sessions and had a blast, winning (just) as the outlaw Kit Carson against the marshal Wyatt Earp - I have gone all-out on Kickstarter expansions for this already Also pulled out our old fave Castles of Burgundy last night, and got roundly thrashed! Well worth pimping it with some nice tile bags to streamline setup.

    OK, time for a bit of a New Year clearout - suggested prices include postage, would be cheaper if not posting separately. Always open to trade/part ex suggestions - in particular I'm on the look out for Cyclades, Everdell, Gizmos, Memoir '44, Orleans & Viticulture at the moment. All are in as new condition, a few plays, well looked after. I'm posting this in trading as well.

    Finally finished my Jade Druid grind of shame to get my 9th golden hero yesterday. Now to relax and mess around playing golden Whizbang until I can work out what to focus on - I've got a stack of gold and dust but don't want to rush into anything yet.

    Sorry mate, I need games with good 2-player options, so not an option for me I'm afraid.

    I got Nina & Pinta, which doesn't look like it's my style at all but is certainly worth a good deal more than a tenner, so should be tradeable

    OK, I'm having a go at MTG: Arena - anyone else tried this? It's quite interesting seeing a dry physical game adapted into a reasonably slick online experience, rather than something built from the ground up to work on a screen like HS. Also, I have to read, like, a whole essay on each card?

    Magic: The Gathering

    Anyone here tried Arena? As a died-in-the-wool Hearthstone player I'm keen to try the mother of all card games in a free-to-play online format. Should I give up before I get sucked in, or persevere? Any good sites for advice on playing with measly pre-constructed decks?

    £10 box ordered. What could possibly go wrong?

    Anyone on here heading to Tabletop Gaming Live next weekend? I won't be, but I'm curious for future reference whether it comes close to the UKGE in terms of scale or quality.

    Yep, I've taken the bait on this one too, particularly because it scales infinitely (when you have free colour photocopying at work) which will make it perfect for my games club at school (I run it, I'm not a schoolkid!).

    8th golden hero earned. Now I have no choice but to play Druid solidly until Christmas - any inspiration for a way to do this without hating myself?
  14. It's bloody great, and the expansion genuinely improves it still further.

    Ah, the joy of idiots in co-operative Tavern Brawls. It was his turn and he had lethal to finish off the pinata, and decided to deliberately kill me instead. Moron.
