Had a game night, that I’m going to pretend to be a regular event in the future. My wife was at work so me and my 10 month old hosted.
Two very good friends came over, and we played the Mind until pizza arrived. Had a few good games, and made it to level 4 or 5 one game. I really enjoy playing this, but I’m still not sure the logic of it. I think we may need more of a willingness to use the shurikens when the time is right.
Around the time we finished the pizza, we set up Photosynthesis to play it for the first time. My daughter woke up from her nap, I brought her down stairs to hang out with us, and for the first time ever, she lost her mind when meeting new people. She was terrified, screamed her head off, crying. Eventually I got her calmed down, and we got the game going.
Photosynthesis is a neat simulation of the life cycle of the forest, trees rise and fall, the sun rises and sets, and your trees need to gather light, in order to proginate and reach maturity. Once a tree has grown old, choose the right time for it to end its life cycle, and it’s worth points.
I really enjoyed it. Afterwords I put my Daughter to bed with some struggles. Just too exciting with the new people. We intended to play Forbidden Sky, but the energy wasn’t there after the melt downs, so we played Smash Bros. until the group split up.
