🇮🇹Dopo quasi un anno di scaffale ho finalmente provato The Bloody Inn di @pearl_games_ . Meccaniche semplici ma non scontate, hai sempre l'impressione di non riuscire a fare tutto ciò che vorresti e anche quando sembra di aver ingranato, l'ansia per l'arrivo della polizia non ti fa mai stare tranquillo. Promosso!
Ho letto di chi non ha apprezzato il gioco per la tematica, onestamente trovo abbastanza ridicola la questione e non vado oltre...
Parliamo invece di quanto sia figo il lavoro di @weberson83, lo trovo uno dei migliori lavori degli ultimi anni.
L'espansione The carnies merita?
🇬🇧After almost a year on the shelf I finally tried The Bloody Inn by @pearl_games_ . Simple but not obvious mechanics, you always feel like you can't do everything you want and even when you seem to have got it all worked out, the worrying about the arrival of the police never makes you feel comfortable. Approved!
I've read about people who didn't appreciate the game for the theme, honestly I find it quite ridiculous and I won't go any further...
Let's talk instead about how cool is the artwork by @weberson83, I find it one of the best jobs of recent years.
Does The carnies expansion worth it?
•War of the Ring•
War of the Ring is an excellent 2-player game that pits the Free Peoples of Middle-earh against the Dark Lord Sauron. The game starts with the Fellowship having just formed in Rivendell and the players take turns resolving action dice to muster and move armies, to recruit evil minions or send fellowship companions to warn the Free Peoples of the approaching war. While huge armies of the Shadow player move across Middle-earth trying to capture strongholds of the Free Peoples and subdue their will to fight, the Fellowship are secretly making their way to Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring. There’s hidden movement, epic battles and sieges, the Fellowship, corruption of the Ringbearers, Nazgul scouring Middle-earth for the One Ring.
War of the Ring is very balanced and superbly manages to capture the asymmetry of the factions. As the Free Peoples player you are outnumbered on every front and there is a feeling of urgency and despair. It’s a race against time where you need to defend strongholds to buy time for the Fellowship to reach Mount Doom. You need to rally the Free Peoples who have all forgotten the Shadow, and you’re pushing the Fellowship with a wary eye on corruption. If the One Ring corrupts the Ringbearers all is lost. As the Shadow player you need to capture Free Peoples strongholds, while at the same time positioning to slow the Fellowship. You have huge armies but strongholds are hard to capture and while you have an endless supply of orcs they have to march out from Mordor. And there’s a great mechanic where Sauron’s attention is drawn to the One Ring. Every eye icon rolled on the action dice has to be spent hunting the Ringbearers. Very thematic and cool.

Detective: a Modern Crime Boardgame 🕵 --------------------------------------------------
Anoche terminamos el quinto caso y así la campaña de este excelente juego. Sorprendente hasta el final y cerrando satisfactoriamente el hilo argumental creado desde el primer caso. Desafortunadamente nuestro grupo no pudo atar todos los cabos sueltos, ni encontrar todas las pistas, pero pudo compensar esa falta con mucha deducción.
El juego base contiene 5 casos que promedian las 3 horas. Además, hemos rejugado 2 casos por haber perdido en el primer intento.
Altamente recomendado y no podemos esperar a jugar la expansión.
Last night we ended up the fifth case and so the campaign of this great game. Surprising until the end and satisfactory closing the narrative created since the first case. Unfortunately our group was unable to tie up all loose ends, or discover all clues, but could compensate that lack with a lot of deduction.
The game contains 5 cases that average the 3 hours. In addition, we have replayed 2 cases for having lost in the first attempt. Highly recommended and we can't wait to play the expansion.
While a little pricey, the Carnodon battle tank is a neat 40k tank.

PANDEMIC IBERIA 🤢 Have you played the different Pandemic variants? Which are your favourites?
Pandemic Iberia (2-5 players/45 mins) is a cooperative board game where you fight the spread of disease in the mid-19th century. It'll feel familiar to Pandemic regulars but with enough changes to add an extra layer of strategy from the classic.
On a players turn they can do any 4 actions. Move (by land, rail or water), build a railroad, treat a disease (removing cubes), purify water, build a hospital, research a disease or share knowledge (cards). Players are also assigned an individual character with unique abilities.
After each players turn, new cards will be drawn for players to use but the risk of an Epidemic card (see: BAD times) being drawn worsening your situation always looms. After this you add more disease, it's crawl over the map inevitable. The balance to this game is managing the diseases with all these actions before they spiral out of control.
Fighting diseases never looked so good!
What was the last game to make you laugh and why? 👀
Not so long ago I started playing 'West of Loathing' which is a bit like Red Dead Redemption's long lost cousin 🥴 I play as 'Shelley Simmons' who has decided to leave her family home and find herself by travelling around the Wild West. She meets a whole host of colourful characters and there have been multiple times where I've laughed out loud at the silliness of some of her encounters. She also has a horse who I particularly like named 'Sly Sue', who has a nervous disposition and is always on edge. However, underneath the humourous storyline and ironic art style lies quite an in depth RPG that you could spend hours on. Well worth picking up if you have a Switch 🙌🏻 if you're an Xbox or PlayStation gamer, what other games have made you laugh?

«Гранд-отель Австрия»: дубль два.😃 Если помните мой предыдущий пост с улучшалками для этой игры, то вы наверняка могли заметить несоответствие размеров сладостей и напитков. Тогда же я написала, что попробую заказать другие варианты сладостей, чтобы они больше соответствовали размерам кружек и бокалов. Наконец, и они добрались до моих рук. Представляю вашему вниманию окончательный вариант для кухни отеля.☕️🍷🥟🍰 Долго я высматривала эти вкусняшки: то мне не нравился размер, то форма, то цвет. Мне хотелось пирожные с кремом, а штрудели со слоеным тестом. Да, они больше напоминают круассаны, но мне нравится. Ведь в данном случае, речь больше идет о вкусовщине. Вы можете попробовать создать свой идеальный набор, где все будет соответствовать вашим пожеланиям. А я точно остановлюсь на этом варианте. Как вам? А в сравнении с предыдущими сладостями? 😊 #игры #настольныеигры #настолки #грандотельавстрия #boardgame#tabletopgame#tabletopgames#grandaustriahotel#boardgames#game#bgaliexpress#crowdgames#nastolochka
