Boardgames in Isolation: November (part 1) 18 November 2020

More boardgames played from home.

As usual, lots of Rallyman: GT, with various BGA competitions. Still my favourite game at the moment.

Some VOLT on yucata; Colt Express on BGA; Diamant/Incan Gold also on BGA.

A game of FUSE actually with physical bits – I have more to play for my 10×10 for the year.

One game of Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations via Tabletop Simulator; it's a one-player game, but I hosted it for a friend, acting as the rules engine but letting him make the decisions. One mission went horribly wrong, but the overall score was still "Good". I don't have a physical copy of this but there is one on the way. (On the other hand, for a longer game, one would really want to leave it set up for several days, something that's trivial with TTS.)

Potion Explosion on BGA: it turns out that when I can take as long as I like to think about a turn, I can actually do moderately well.

Rallyman for ISGOYTRA.

Red7 because I still enjoy it.

Another game of Sakura Arms with the starting setup. Fiddly but great fun. (No more of this because we played Hornet Leader instead, but I imagine we'll get back to it soon.)

Tobago on BGA; the user interface is a bit weird but it's still a great game.

And more V-Commandos on discussion.tekeli.li (Inkscape is great for this kind of game).
