    I just beat a ten year old girl at a game of parcheesi. I’m taking a bit of joy in it, actually. She’s so smug when she wins, it’s nice to show her that you can win and be gracious about it.Report

    Well I was going to play Pillars of Eternity this weekend but my computer died Thursday night.

    From what I’ve read, Imperial Assault can also work like a skirmish waragme with 2 evenly balanced sides. Combined with how the expansions work. It looks like Fantasy Flight have produced a hybrid of a board game and a miniature waragme.Report

      The board game/mini war game hybrid seems to be how Fantasy Flight rolls from here on out. (Well, that and the card game where they sell you the complete base set of cards, and then make 20ish expansions at a sweet price point.)

      It makes me wonder what Games Workshop (the warhammer people) could do if they switched from sniffing glue to something that keeps the brain cells more intact.Report

    Pillars of Eternity. It was released Thursday, but I was waiting for the physical media to be shipped to me…until I realized late last night that I had completely forgotten about the Steam key I had available. I don’t necessarily mind beta or early access for strategy games (Gnomoria, Project Zomboid, Rimworld), but generally avoid them completely for games with a plot, so I hadn’t been really hadn’t been keeping tabs on things.

    I’ve only just finished the character creation process. It’s relatively lengthy. There are a lot of unfamiliar options to choose between. There’s a chance I might start over after playing a few hours, depending on how much the choices actually impact the game.Report
