My #farfewergamesin2016 campaign has mostly been a success. Making harder choices, backing and chasing fewer things. But fewer is more than none because who can live like that?
I’m running Christian Griffen’s Meridian at Big Bad Con next week, better study up.

I founded the Indie Game Reading Club in 2010. I've written and developed RPGs since the mid-90s, now I mostly talk about playing them.

Haha! You finally got it! (Proving that Puerto Rico is actually closer to Wisconsin than Arizona!) 😛
It’s gorgeous! I need to pressgang some people and play this 😀
Eloy Cintron also, my neighborhood has the iffiest USPS service. I was tracking both games via the USPS app, which proudly announced they’d been left in a “mailbox or locker” at noon. So I rushed out but no games! Because apparently “mailbox or locker” is code for “freshly watered planter near my front door, but it’s cool because the contents are probably wrapped in plastic, we cool bro?”
Hahahaha! (Actually, mail is kind of weird here. Sometimes it moves like lightning, sometimes… it’s unexpectedly delayed)
I’m sure USPS was hauling ass to get under that hurricane. You good there?
Seafall was on my “Even more anticipated than Rebellion” list until I watched the Shutup and Sit-down review.
Then it moved to my “Maybe Beakley will buy that one and save me trouble of finding out if it’s any good first” list.
Ralph Mazza oh are they iffy on SeaFall?
They were iffy on Rebellion as well. I totally get where they were coming from! But I also think they’re as jaded about boardgames as I am about RPGs, so their “this feels same-y” complaints haven’t quite gelled for me playing Rebellion yet. And that’s after maybe 8 total plays so far.
Paul Beakley Yup. All good. Hurricane passed us by… Florida is the one on the crosshairs now! 🙁
Paul Beakley I read their Seafall review as considerably more iffy than their impressions on Rebellion. Their Rebellion review made me excited to try it.
Which I will finally. Tonight!
Also waiting for the Beakley review before Seafalling for anything. And I get almost every nautical thing ever.
It was way worse than their Rebellion review.
The first half was all “look at this…look at this…look this” most amazing game ever…
…then the sudden twist…”no actually it’s not”…the killer was that they kept playing episode after episode thinking that “the next episode is when it will start being fun”…but it never happened.
Which crushed me because…Age of Sail shit is my jam.
So now I’ll await the Beakley Review.
It can’t beeeeeee ::lets go of gantry, falls into abyss::
Well… not a boardgame, but a miniature Wargame… Firestorm Armada 2.0 is Age of Sail-like rules in spaaaaaaace. I like that one a lot 🙂
See Paul, this is why you need a game review Patreon. Much cheaper for me and subsidized game purchases for you.
I just read some comments about the SUSD review and now my day is ruined.
Ralph you bastard.
“Ralph you bastard”
…like I’ve never heard that before…
It’s not my best work.
Get your revenge. Start that Patreon and roll in phat dollars.
