We were watching “Ready Player One!” this weekend and the movie is all about finding hidden things and that led to a discussion that with board games there is little room for creativity. And that means that nowadays if there’s something hidden in a board game, it’s under the inlay or there’s a hidden bottom in the box. The very first time we encountered it, it was really cool, but by now the novelty has worn off a little, for us at least. 😉
Last week, we continued our adventure in Gloomhaven and this weekend was dedicated to games that take a little more time to play!
On Saturday we gathered all our grunge looking cars and terrain for a game of Gaslands! Jeroen who we only knew via Instagram/Twitter even drove all the way to our house to join the game and Mariecke, who drew this amazing guest comic, played her first game of Gaslands… and won! Her buggy sprinted off while her other car just caused mayhem and destruction to all of the other cars, effectively.
On Sunday we continued puzzling our way through The Wilson Wolfe Affair. We were kind of overwhelmed the first time we opened the box and although we did solve some puzzles (we think), we didn’t have a clear overlapping picture. This time we’ve laid quite a groundwork. We made a timeline, made a document about all the involved characters and their roles, and gathered all the clues we found that might turn out to be useful for other puzzles. We also ended with a few leads that we want to investigate the next time we play – so far it’s been a really fun experience and I hope we manage to keep cracking puzzles without needing to use any hints.
