Achievement unlocked! published on 5 Comments on Achievement unlocked!

… The things we do in life, eh, mostly board gaming! If you’d make a list, you would be impressed by how awesome you must be! 😉

Last week went by in a flash! We didn’t play too many board games, only The Networks, Biblios and Elder Sign. Oh and yesterday on the train we played a game of Pandemic on a tablet, which we won! … barely. 😀 While the world was spinning into utter chaos and with our outbreak counter on 7, we just managed to cure the last disease. Ignoring most of the cubes and just go for exchanging cards and curing the diseases might not have been our best strategy. 😀

And our game of Elder Sign went just terribly last week. We both were incapable of throwing whatever we needed. For example: even after spending four clue tokens on four dice – the dice just refused to give us a scroll icon. After that and every room in the museum holding a terrible monster, we just quit the game. The Elder Gods just managed to curse our dice that night. We’ll have our revenge one day.
