  • We Can Build it Bigger

    We decided to revisit the 2003 classic Alhambra today. Turns out it's still a fun game, even with just three players. Wintertide, Megabyte, and Grey square (triangle?) off to see who can make the best of what we have to work with. Who's gonna build the best city ever? You'll just to watch and see!

  • Playing a Roll

    We checked out this game called Roll Player today and it was a heck of a lot of fun! Not a ton of player interaction but the elements that it tries to bring together are quite interesting. You play a character, straight out of a Dungeons & Dragons, trying to max your states, buy the best gear, and stay true to your alignment and backstory. Watch on to see how it goes!

  • Nite Shift Conquers Calus!

    After some hard grinding over the course of the games first week, Nite Shift was ready to take on the Leviathan in the first raid released on Destiny 2.  Not only did Nite Shift take down Calus, the final boss of the four part raid, but they did so again to ensure other members were able to get their loot before the weekly reset. Read on for more info!

  • Yahtzee, Codenames, Who's Counting?

    Yup. We played Yahtzee. I know, very exciting. Now for the hype-man text: Watch as we play this classic, banging game where you roll dice and risk it all to get the highest score! Who will take home all the cheese, the moolah, the bread? You're just gonna have to watch and find out. Oh, and we played Codenames too.

Tabletop Games List

Some things that might require further explanation:

Max Players - Currently Tabletop Simulator has a limit of 8 players; however it may be possible to play with more players with spectating and streaming. For now just list there maximum number of players as if Tabletop had no restrictions.

Rules Difficulty - This is an estimation of the difficulty for a player to grasp the rules, not necessarily the overall complexity in strategy to execute a game. A good example would be Chess has relatively simple rules (Easy), but has quite complex strategy involved in it, only the rules difficulty is considered here so Chess would be labeled as easy.
Very Easy - Rules can be explained in about a minute or two and can be instantly grasped by players.
Easy - Rules can be explained as we go through the game and there likely will be very little confusion or problems.
Medium - Rules will likely have to be read in advance, videos will need to be watched, etc, and possibly even require a test run but aren't terribly difficult to grasp.
Hard - Will require rulebook to be read, videos watch, AND one or more test runs. The rules have a lot of nuances, phases, there are some difficult to explain concepts that will require experience.
Very Hard - These games require players experienced with the ruleset to play, or lots and lots of preparation time. If we decide to play a Very Hard game it will require some dedication on the part of the players to learn and it likely won't happen within a week's time.

Time per Match - Unless we've previously played it on TT this is an estimation given on sites like Boardgamegeek, Wikipedia, from people experienced in the game or the developers themselves. Generally when one of these estimations are given they assume people know the rules well, move relatively fast, and aren't using Tabletop Simulator (which can slow things down). As such, you can expect the actual time of a first playthrough to be DOUBLE or more the estimation.

Competitive/Cooperative? - Is the game meant to be played with others or is it against each other. Just list out a very basic description of how the competitive or coop elements work in the game if needed.

Please start filling this up with games you want to play especially the Warhammer and D&D stuff.
