Boardgames in Isolation: June (part 1) 25 June 2020

More boardgames played from home.

Game of the month was certainly Rallyman: GT, with games played on BoardGameArena and Tabletop Simulator (ISGOYTRA and the Rallyman GT Spain championship – though the latter seems to have gone without updates for a while).

Also good old-fashioned Rallyman, though I suspect I'll play less of this once the GT version of Dirt comes out (combining actual rallying with the updated mechanics).

Race for the Galaxy, Takenoko and Tobago with the Marlow group - Tobago also with a Cardiff-based friend on BGA.

She plays more Eurogames than I do, and has introduced me to Kahuna

and Targi

(both of which I'd class as basically abstract games with minimal theme).

Some more K2. Once day I'll get both climbers down alive.

VOLT on There are players much better than me out there.

Some Coup on BGA - I won my first game, but not since.

Automobiles on yucata, where again most players are better than me.

I think that may be a problem with this kind of site: if you get a rating in a game, you obviously have an incentive to play more of that game, and if I get into a game of say

6 nimmt!

with strangers, many of them will be people who play a lot of 6 Nimmt!. I'm more prone to play a bit of this and a bit of that rather than deep-diving a specific game.
