|Thinking of Designing a board game|
Been playing a lot of interesting board games lately and thought I could come up with a few neat ideas myself. Maybe even mix two of my favourite things, Board Games and Music. If anyone is interested is interested in brainstorming some ideas back forth, feel free to shoutbox me. Geeks of sputnik unite! List is some of my favourite games, and an album I feel is somewhat similar.
Scream Bloody Gore
Dead of Winter. Just played this for the first time the other day, and I'm hooked. A near perfect zombie survival board game.
Captain Morgan's Revenge
Libertalia. A very fun, albeit somewhat simple, pirate themed game that I play regularly on BGA.
The Power and the Glory
Cities and Knights of Catan. I've been playing the regular Settlers of Catan for several years now. This expansion adds the perfect amount of complexity to it to make it more strategic, yet easy for newcomers to catch on.
|4||The Devin Townsend Band|
Through The Ages. Haven't played this too much yet, and the learning curve is relatively steep, but once you catch on, its quite in depth and entertaining. Getting destroyed by military is a pain in the ass though.
Pandemic. I need to try the new pandemic game that came out this year, but until then I have this and the On The Brink expansion to keep me busy. Never had so much fun losing to a board.
Scheherazade and Other Stories
Carcassonne. Another one of my most played games along with Catan. Simple tile placing game, that gets better with the Traders and Builders and Inns and Cathederals expansions.
Twilight of the Thunder God
Lords of Waterdeep. Only played this twice, but it was really intriguing. Not too big of a learning curve, but there is oodles of strategy to be had, and this may be overwhelming at first.
Coup. Really fast paced bluffing game that is incredibly addicting. Good to play with bad liars.
I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die
Small World. Interesting conquest based game. Skeletons are kinda op though.
|10||Queens of the Stone Age|
Songs for the Deaf
Stone Age. Similar to lords of waterdeep, but a little more luck based and slightly less strategic
|11||Emerson Lake and Palmer|
In the Hot Seat
Ticket to Ride. Only started playing this earlier this year. Got it for a gift on my bday. Incredibly fun, especially given how simple it is. The Europe version is pretty sweet too.
7 wonders. Haven't played this too much, but it is pretty fun, and decently strategic.
Forbidden desert. Same maker as pandemic. Even harder than pandemic, with the board being built randomly before the game begins. Great replay value.
|probably wanna make it wild west themed if not music themed.|
|Ticket To Ride is fantastic, the extensions add a bit more depth to it too. Also played Carcassonne a whole lot a few years back, I really should play more board games. Used to play Axis and Allies all the time but that game had a huge learning curve|
|Forbidden Desert sounds fun|
|do it record label themed. each person is manager of an up and coming label, needs to sign bands, hop on trends, etc. That way you can have all sorts of genres and have weird musical revivals where they don't belong|
|this is a very, very cool idea. be sure to keep us up to date--not sure if I can really offer much of anything at all, but best of luck, & like what I've read so far, haha.|
|ah carcassonne, the game I could never win|
|neat idea man hope you come up with a winner|
|So are Risk, Scrabble, and Battleship too basic?|
|Screwball Scramble >|
|Just picked up Race For The Galaxy and The Castle of Burgundy. Anyone down to play Race with me on BGA?|
