Boardgames at Home, June 2018 21 June 2018

It's been a while since the last boardgaming day, and we felt like doing it again.

We started with 6 Nimmt!, getting in two rounds before the last people arrived.

With everyone together, we played a couple of rounds of Deception: Murder in Hong Kong – making sure the same person wasn't the murderer the second time. One win for the murderer, one for the forces of justice.

Then we split into fours; one side played Splendor,

while I got into Black Orchestra (with my second-edition copy).

It got pretty tough at times, with all the senior Nazis descending at once on some poor fool…

…while soon enough three out of four of us had been arrested.

But we made it in the end, killing Hitler with a Resistance Broadcast (and thus general uprising, I assume) in stage 6. (Consensus seems to be that this makes the game much easier, but it was still the only chance we had.)

On the other side of the table they'd been playing King of Tokyo](, and finished about the same time we did.

So we ate, and shuffled the groups around, and I played my new copy of Xenon Profiteer, which is rapidly becoming my new favourite… and which I just barely won with a last-minute overtime distill and contract rush.

The other end of the table played Sagrada

followed by Nobody But Us Chickens, which has some similarities to 6 Nimmt!, but with more bluffing.
