It’s been a busy past two days with starting school! But I still had time to make it to Tabletop. As mentioned in my first blog post, I go play board games once a week with a local tabletop community. There are tons of games!
Now that I’m back at school, I won’t be able to stay as late as I used to. I’m hoping to get at least two games in per week. This week I played Harbour and Loonacy: Retro.
The first game I played was Harbour. In this game, you are using different cards to collect resources, earn money with resources, and then buy new cards with the money you earn. Each card has different abilities, and you move your person onto the cards to gain the ability. Only one person can be on each card at a time (for the most part, there are some exceptions…). Whoever has the most victory points once someone has bought four card wins.
I ended up being the first person to four cards, but I came in second place because someone else got cards that were worth more victory points. I enjoyed this game, and I would play it again because there are many different abilities on the cards, and we did not even get to all of them.
The second game I played was Loonacy: Retro. After playing an hour-long strategy game, I wanted to play something quick and fun. I knew that the original Loonacy fit that description, so I decided to try out the retro version. It plays the same as Loonacy. Each player has 7 cards, and on these cards are two pictures. Then there’s a card in the middle of the table, and players have to match one of their pictures to one of the pictures in the middle. Whoever runs out of cards first wins! I ended up playing this game twice.
I didn’t get pictures mid-game since it goes so fast!
The first game we had four people, and we went through the whole deck before someone one. That was the first Loonacy game I’ve played where we had to go through the whole deck! The second game we played with seven people, even though it is only recommended for five. Well, that game got a little intense and one person knocked their drink on the floor. Oops! Maybe that’s why there’s a maximum number of players? Either way, it was still a fun time.
Now it’s time for me to go to bed for more back-to-school training! If you’ve played these games before, let me know what you think 🙂
