What We’re Playing

  • Last Friday night we got in another game of Pandemic: The Cure. This game is quickly becoming the favored game in the Pandemic series for Kae. We also played Cross Hares in 2 player mode and had a blast. Well, the bunnies did at least!
  • On Sunday we continued our Shadows of Brimstone campaign. In fact, Raine has started a small fictional series based on our adventures, the first of which was posted on Monday. That night, we played Cross Hares again but with 4 players this time. After this play we are thinking we prefer this game with more than 2 players, if just for the extra options of who to mess with!

We are excited to share our upcoming reviews with you this week, and hope that you enjoyed our recent reviews. In case you missed it, we shared thoughts on Lost Legacy: The Starship, Lost Legacy: Flying Garden, Caverna: The Cave Farmers, and The Black Rose. We hope that you have a great weekend of gaming, and until next time, happy gaming!
