  • strip_icc_pic2338267.jpgTigris & Euphrates - 2-4 players Abstract tile placement game based on ancient empires

Deck/Pool Building

  • strip_icc_pic2225180.jpgLegendary: Encounters - 1-5 players Co-op Aliens movie franchise card based deck builder. So far I've only done the first movie 3 times, so we could try a different mix of cards.
  • strip_icc_pic3477004.jpgDice Forge - 2-4 players Dice building game (you use 2 dice but change their faces). I've not tried the advanced rules for this yet. It's a light game
  • Mystic Vale - 2-4 players Card building game (you have 20 cards in your deck but modify their faces). I've only played the basic without expansions so far. So eager to try all the expansions.
  • Played strip_icc_pic1604985.jpgQuarriors - 2-4 players Cute dice pool building game.

GM vs Players

  • strip_icc_pic2903180.jpgBattlestations 2nd ed - 2-9 players oldie but a goodie. Everyone but me is a crew member of a tile-built starship where they run around to use battlestations to perform missions.
  • strip_icc_pic1638487.jpgGuardians Chronicles - 2-5 players Players are superheroes versus an evil supervillain and their minions. Various expansions. Cards and dice.


  • strip_icc_pic3853049.jpgXia - 1-5 players Great single ship, slightly random, elite/firefly game with great gamepieces.


  • strip_icc_pic3322613.jpgCharterstone - 1-6 players A 12 game legacy campaign of village building using worker placement and resource management. At the end you have a unique board and player powers. Replayable even after the legacy. Ideally we need the same amount of players for every game but it does have mechanics for missing players.
