    I put Invisible Inc. on my wishlist per your suggestion and bought it when it went on sale this week. So far I kinda suck at it, but it’s been a lot of fun.Report

    We’re heading home from a week at the beach today. Per your suggestion we bought Ultimate Werewolf and the kids LOVED IT (ages 12, 14 and 18). Even Grandpa played with us and Grandma had fun watching us all do silly things with our eyes closed. We used the app, which really made it a lot easier. The kids seemed to really like the strategy part and fibbing to each other. And they managed to start fooling the adults, which delighted them to no end. Turned out to be a perfect game for a relaxed week where you don’t want any big time commitments. Thanks JB!Report

    A bit late on the Endless Space 2 train. So far, it’s Exactly What It Says On The Tin (tm TV Tropes). If you weren’t expecting:
    – 4x space game with all 4 Xs in play
    – most of the game systems not as abstract as in the first game but not quite as complex as you might like
    – a lot of design decisions driven by the shared-universe background rather than a universe simulator like e.g. Stellaris (tries to be)
    – deep lore and quest narrative for each race provides a vastly different feel for each, at the cost of the kind of breadth of possibilities that a lot of other games try to reach for
    – combat system encompassing Rock, Paper, and Scissors, albeit better-hidden than in the first game

    Well, then you were expecting some other game, because that’s exactly what they promised and apparently exactly what they delivered.Report

      Oh, and played an hour or so of Don’t Starve Together. I built a pickaxe and was killed by a frog. Directions are arbitrary when no one has a compass. It was fun.Report
