I guess everybody has experienced this at least once in their life. Either in their own backyard, a park or while camping. Card games and the outside world are somewhat of a challenging combination. The idea is lovely, but the reality can be disappointing. 😉
We’re not actually on a vacation, but we did play a game with a lot of cards – within the wind free confinements of our own home. Yesterday we’ve played Food Chain Magnate for the first time! It is a little competitive, because players can really make the rest of the game harder for one another with one well-played marketing campaign. But since it’s not a direct attack on another player (like in a war game for example), but simply a well played action, we personally don’t mind. It fits in the setting of the game. I loved the details of the game, from the ‘menu card’ to the overall art style. I can’t wait to play it again and try to sell pizzas to people for more than 30 dollar a piece!
This is where games like Hive and Trax excel, nice heavy pieces 😀
A very long time ago (probably fifty years), i’ve played an epic Risk game, almost 4 days. It was a 3-players game, and finally I don’t remember who had won, but it was amazing.
