Circuit the Danger House via a MacGuffin Expedition
A little light on in the number of different games played this week, but they were all great! Well, almost. They were fun though!
Downforce: Danger Circuit
On the surface, Danger Circuit is just more Downforce. 2 new tracks and 6 new team powers – that’s it. There rule additions are minimal, and it’s great! It let everyone simply jump straight in and play, and that is part of what made it great.
Already in my head, I have a couple of Grand Prix style events that can happen over the four tracks. Four games of Downforce, maybe an hour and a half-two hours? I am sure more expansions will be coming in the future as well, and I can’t wait to play them either.
Get the MacGuffin
The MacGuffin is old Hitchcock film speak for the thing everyone wants. And this hand management/social deduction style game definitely keeps this idea going!
Playing with three players was fun, and the games are definitely quick. I think the sweet spot maybe 4-5 players, but Alpal quite enjoys it two players and isn’t big into card counting. There will be more talk of this in the future.
Expedition: The Role Playing Card Game
Expedition: The Role Playing Card Game is a bit of a sleeper surprise for me. I bought it out of curiosity and a desire for free shipping (it bumped me over the threshold!) thinking I could look at it and incorporate into an upcoming video.
Well, I will be, and it’s exactly what it says on the box – it’s a quick and easy role play system that will have you on a quest inside of a couple of minutes.
All of the components are the building blocks of an adventure. The quests/missions you go on are all controlled in a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style manner via an app, and it works incredibly well.
Choose Your Own Adventure: House of Danger
Speaking of Choose Your Own Adventure, we jumped into the second chapter in House of Danger after a bit of a break.
Waiting three weeks between games may have been a bit long, but exploring the house was a fun affair. We didn’t even notice the two hours fly by!
Things are starting to fall into place as we play, with some rules and options becoming clear. The games writing and our own observations (read taking things not at all seriously) is more fun than I thought it would be. We ‘died’ early on in an absolutely amazing and ridiculous manner early on, and it was great 😀
Definitely worth checking out, and will be played again soon. Can’t wait to finish this one either 🙂
Video Game wise, it was Octpath Carnage? Time Traveler is too easy
Time Carnage Switch
So a lot of Switch games (and Video Games in general) are starting to be released. I was interested in Time Carnage because of my experiences with the game in VR, and gameplay wise it’s kinda close.
This is not a game I will be coming back to on the Switch, because I have the VR version on PlayStation and PC. If it goes on sale or you are looking for a co-op rail shooter, maybe give it a try?
Yeah, I am going to be playing this for a long time. It’s great, and I am loving it.
I have completed the first chapter for each of the eight characters and spent a lot of hours completing Therion’s (my main character) Chapter 2.
Now, I have a lot of grinding ahead of me. Chapter 2 recommends most characters are around the mid-20’s in term of levels, and I have a three characters in the 10-12 range.
I have discovered unlocking a second job class which has already opened up a lot of options for me, so I also have to go back to a lot of areas already completed and try for some more secrets as well!
So that’s what I have been playing – what about you? Let us know on the Facebook page!
Until next time,
