3 days of Pax + 2 Tabletop Gamers = 15 Games Played.
We came, we saw, we played.
And we had a blast!
I talked about the first three games played in Part 1 (1. Story Wars, 2. Forbidden Desert, 3. Oz Fluxx), before we went into panel mode. After Saturday morning's workshop, we turned our sights to games and started with the (4.) DC Deck Building Game. I was lagging a bit and thought I would watch but the couple demoing the game convinced me to play and I am glad I did! It was easy to learn and a whole lot of fun. We randomly received a Super Hero card and I ended up with Wonder Woman. Yeah, you know I was happy about that. I was even happier when I won the game. Mhm. Ben bought a copy of the game right after we played, so I'm pretty sure there will be a full review here at some point, but I'll sum up by saying we both loved it and I may just have to buy a copy myself.
We had promised to check out a card game called (5.) GUB by Gamewright, the same company who brought us Forbidden Island. We popped over to their booth and gave it a go. The object was to collect as many free GUBS before the word GUB was spelled out via the cards. It was a cute game and would probably be a fun one to play with the kids. After we finished the game, the woman demoing asked to show us how to play (6.) Iota. This is a big game in a teeny box. The box reminded me of a band aid box, but a little smaller. The game is a puzzle/pattern game where you build rows of tiles that are either the same or completely different. This is actually a game I would like to pick up and try again, I love patterns and strategy and could enjoy this quite a bit, but fatigue was overwhelming me and I needed a break.
