Boardgames in Isolation: September (part 2) 04 October 2020

More boardgames played from home.

Lots more Rallyman: GT; this is still building up its lead as my most-played game, and the BoardGameArena implementation certainly helps get it played more often than I would otherwise. Also a run for ISGOYTRA. And good ol' Corner of Death…

A bit more VOLT, part of some ongoing competitions on yucata.de. (Yucata doesn't have generalised tournament functionality, but series of matches are in the rules for VOLT.)

Some more Air, Land & Sea. It's a nasty mean vicious game, but like Onitama it's over quickly so it's not annoying to lose. I hope; I won.

Rallyman for ISGOYTRA. During which I discovered that the built-in "tablet" in Tabletop Simulator is capable of supporting a log-on to BoardGameArena.

And Targi, which is weirdly themeless in that standard Eurogame way but still quite fun. Not that I'm any good at it. (Has this recently had a reprint? I remember people talking about it a year or two ago, but suddenly a bunch of places are reviewing it.)

[Buy Rallyman GT at Amazon] [Buy VOLT at Amazon] [Buy Air, Land & Sea at Amazon] [Buy Targi at Amazon] and help support the blog.
