    I also like how well Anomia adapts to different settings.

    We played it with 2 other hyper-verbally-adept people who are just as much vocabulary geeks as we are (the folks who gave it to us) and it was a totally different style of game, but still funny and still delightful and still very much worth it.Report

    On the computer gaming front, I’ve been playing Factorio a lot recently. Its a crafting game about building a rocket to send a satellite off the alien planet you’re stranded on.

    Unlike most survival-crafting games, you can’t possibly do everything yourself, so the game is actually about building up an ever more complex factory made of mining drills, conveyor belts, smelters and assembly machines to produce everything you need to build the rocket and get it into orbit. There are alien bugs that attack you in response to the pollution you produce (necessitating building fortifications and gun turrets), but there’s also a peaceful mode where the aliens won’t attack unless you shoot at them.Report
