It’s very easy to sometimes get a little too enthusiastic when your non-gamer friends invite you over to… play a game! With so many good games in your collection, it feels like an important task that you’d like to find that one perfect gateway game for them. You’ll be responsible for the introduction of how amazing board games are nowadays! The pressure! And it’s way too easy to go a little overboard on this. 😉
Last week we ended up only playing our Kickstarter copy of Heroes of Tenefyr, which we received a couple of weeks ago. The designer Pepijn is somebody I’ve known for a long long time but we hadn’t seen each other for about ten years and we were surprised to see him at the UKGE last year! If you’re thinking… I know that name somehow: he also commissioned a sponsored comic last year! Heroes of Tenefyr is a cool co-op deck building game with a fun push-your-luck element. If you’re interested, CoolstuffInc.com had a few copies for sale.
We’re both busy wrapping things up for the UK Games Expo, where we’ll be from Thursday night to Sunday. I feel like I’ve been playing very very little games lately and I’m looking forward to just being among board games for a long weekend. 😀 Heinze and I will also be guests on NoPunIncluded’s Board Game Show on Saturday starting at 4 pm. We’ll be playing Victorian Parlour Games as far as I heard!
This weekend also is the official date for International Tabletop Day and we got some questions regarding the achievement badges we’ve been making the last years. Because of the late announcement of the ITTD and the fact that it’s on the same date as the UKGE, we’ve decided not to make any new badges for 2019. There was too much chaos surrounding the date and gaming events were organized on the old date in April and in June. Hopefully next year things will have quieted down and the communication will be better. For now, you can always use the badges we’ve made for ITTD 2018. Sorry to disappoint if you were hoping for new/more badges, we would love to make new ones for 2020. 🙂
