It's almost midnight, but your friend is wanting to play one more game. Which do you decide on?
Well I guess this is going to be a long night, set up Five Tribes, time to school some fools
Well if im going to stay up I want to make it worth it, Race for the Galaxy it is
This is my time, quick games are my bread and butter! Coup
Oh no, this is going to be bad, you play risky enough when you're not tired. King of Tokyo
Okay what the hell, it's already late so whats a few more hours. Eldrich Horror time!
Uhh I'm pretty tired. How about a simple game where I don't have to do much. Spyfall sounds great
The world is under attack by super powered beings, what's your secret power?
Super Strength: I spend my days building towers, do you really think my strength is a secret power?
Super Speed: I usually use it to get around and see everyone at the party... but it could help here too
Fire Manipulation: All will be cleansed with my righteous fire!
Telepathy: I don't have to pretend to be anyone else, I just make them think I am!
Flight: At least I hope it works... I better not try from a high point first
Invisibility: Why run head first? If they can't see me I can do whatever I want to them
Zombie's are trying to bash down your front door, what's your weapon of choice?
Your mighty great sword you bought at the renaissance fair, I knew this would come in handy some day!
I hide, my friends will come and protect me! Won't they?
Chainsaw, lets hope it starts up...
Flamethrower, If movies have taught me anything, it's that fire fixes everything.
I don't want to attract more, so lets get this done quietly, Silenced Pistol
Weapon? I've already set up an elaborate set of traps. Im untouchable
You just bought a new game and are excited to show your friends, how do you approach teaching it to them?
Start by reading the engaging story at the start of the rule book, they'll be hooked!
Show them an example of a turn first, open handed so we are all on the same page
Work out the basic rules but dont share the expanded mechanics with them, they don't need to know... probably
Read the entire book front to back before even touching the playing pieces
Just set up the board and take it as it comes
Set up all the pieces you'll need and make sure everyone has enough space to play
Time to make the perfect space for your gaming sessions, what's the first thing you buy?
A few comfy chairs! I want my guests to enjoy there time here
An awesome speaker system, the atmospher is just as important as the story itself!
Something to track our life totals! I want to be able to see how close my opponent is to defeat!
A few dice towers. If I'm going to be rolling a lot of dice, I'm doing it in style!
A good shelf to store my games on, I need people to see how amazing my collection is!
Card sleeves and a play mat, I need to be prepared for anything to happen
You're playing a game that allows alliances, but they aren't necessary. What do you do?
I make a pact with my best friend, I know they won't betray me
Make an agreement, but be prepared to fight if it turns sour
There is too much risk involved, I'd rather work on my own
Every elf needs to be a part of a good party, Lets go comrade!
Start a temporary alliance, just until I can get myself into a sturdy position
I'll team up with anyone, you gotta take chances if you want to get the win
What aspect of day to day life do you find MOST important?
Taking a risk
You see a brand new game in your local store. You are going to buy it, but what sold you on it?
Its a party game, so I will be able to play this with my large group of friends
I've heard about this game, its pretty complex and hard to beat. Bring it on
It had 'Roll' in the title... so uh..
The game has a lot of physical pieces, I love good quality components!
The art, I mean look at all the colours! It's beautiful!
It's a free for all style game, this means I'll be able to crush my oppenents!
You just caught another player cheating. What do you do?
Ignore it, you are so far ahead that he needs all the help he can get
Depends what kind of cheating it was, it is just a game after all.
Call them out, I'd like to see them try that again with everyone watching!
It seems we have a rogue in our midst, I best watch him closely.
Plan how you will get them back without calling them out
Well he didn't get away with it but I know I can!
When you're trying to describe a game to a friend who hasn't played it before, whats the first thing you mention?
If it comes with a lot of components
How much freedom you have
What the story is about
If there is player elimination
How complex it is
Whether or not we play as a team
