Oooh, it’s gonna be a nail-biter of a finish here… I have 4 games unplayed in 2018 on my list, and my intent was to spend all day today (my 2nd day off since November) playing all four of them.
My dear brother is visiting from Vancouver for a few days, and he has brought his delightful partner Alana. This is… interesting. My brother usually relishes any opportunity to crush his younger sibling (me) at anything (I won a national Kendo tournament once, and he insisted that he could beat me at the sport days later…), but Alana isn’t usually into games. Which means while I would happily pull out Sekigahara for Alex to beat me at (it’s so much fun, losing is almost as much of a joy as winning!), I can’t if he wants to include her. And it’s not on the list, regardless…
Ditto for Armada… he’d pick the game up quick enough, but it’s only 2 players at best. So if Alana wants to play, that could be difficult.
Terraforming Mars could work, but my partner isn’t a huge fan of my brother (too competitive/argumentative for her tastes, and I totally respect that) and there’s no way I’m playing that one 2 player or trying to explain it to Alana. Escape: Zombie City might work… at least it’s co-operative.
I may have to abandon the dream in order to play Treasure Island, which I think could be a blast… but we will see.
