Mythos Tales

So the final case has been played.  This game has left me with a lot of ups and downs.  From the Kickstarter itself, the poor quality of the first edition, inconsistent case quality, it’s been a journey.

Expect the full review soon now, but the final case was a great night.  It was indeed an interesting round, with many possible choices.  Harls and I were wary as there are only a few pages to the case, but they were good ones.  Multiple choices, red herrings, logic leaps that are actually achievable – it was a great end.

It almost always looks like the same shot. It's a book, a map, and some cards - it's hard to get action shots 🙂

Dice Town

I have been trying to play Dice Town for quite some time, and thanks to Alpal I got the chance this week.

Even though my luck with dice isn’t great, Dice Town is definitely a great time.  Essentially poker Yahtzee, players roll dice to make the best hand you can.

But it’s not straight poker – each ‘card’ has a corresponding ability section on the game board.  Win these sections, and you can get points and use special abilities.

Playing a couple of rounds, it was a great time and I am sure I can talk Alpal into a few more games for a proper review 🙂

It may look complicated, but Dice Town is a great quick fun game

Istanbul The Dice Game

Ahh, Istanbul the Dice Game.  I don’t know what it is about this version of the classic game, but I love it.

Roll the dice, and adapt your strategy on the fly.  All three of us ended up with the 6 rubies required for the end game, but Elle definitely took home the tiebreaker.

Istanbul the Board Game is a great puzzle that I enjoy, but the Dice Game still gives me the same feeling in a lighter game mode.  Always a lot of fun to play.

Roll your dice, and try to get more rubies than your opponents

Tetris 99

Tetris 99 has an event going this weekend, and I played quite a few games.  Even got a couple of wins, which was a great feeling 😀

If you have a Nintendo Switch and Online, grab yourself Tetris 99.  It’s free, it’s fun, what more can I say?

The Battle Royale format gives the games an interesting twist.  But at the end of the day, it’s Tetris – what can you really say about it?

A new patch has made the controls a little more sensitive, but everything is still working great with the Joy Cons.  I haven’t tried the Pro Controller or the Hori controller with the new version, but I am sure I will soon.

Well this was a fun way to start. A few pieces in, and the pressure starts to mount

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,
