What box of goodness and fun did you bring home with you today?
I picked up a copy of No Thanks for an adequate $13. Surprisingly cheap considering Games World is not known for their value for money.
My girlfriend also gave me Orphan Black as an anniversary present. The TV show is pretty trucking good (HELENA NUMBER ONE), so the game must be good.May 30, 2016 at 5:40 pm #14261

We collect Monopoly versions. Last couple weeks we bought fallout 4 and classic disney monopoly. We already had Adventure time and Game of Thrones versions.
I really want the pixar one, pokemon one looks cool. But the one I’m dying to get is the south park one but it’s very limited edition so its like $250 and I just can’t justify it at all.
I just stick to traditional board games because none of my friends have any intrest in learning new games or rules etc so it sucks a bit.May 30, 2016 at 7:26 pm #14270

I really want to buy Twilight Struggle but I don’t really have anyone to play/learn with me since my board game enthusiast friend moved to Melbourne while I’m in Perth.June 1, 2016 at 8:49 pm #14632
Pre Ordered the Labyrinth board game by River Horse ( based around the 80’s movie with David Bowie and his crotch)
Cost me a small fortune, but it’s Labyrinth so I didn’t have a choice massive fan
Also still waiting on my Cyanide & Happiness card game that I kickstartedJune 22, 2016 at 11:38 am #18514
Bought some new games last weekend, and ordered a new one from the states
Finally picked a classic version of Yahtzee, and an amazing card game called ‘Gloom’
Gloom is hilarious, the aim of the game is to make your family members as miserable as possible- and to throw happiness onto your opponents
I also ordered Archipelago, a trading based game. Seems to be reasonably involved, and has a steep learning curve apparently, but I’m keen to learn.June 23, 2016 at 9:27 am #18730

Got this for my little boy for his Birthday on Tuesday. Good game, pretty basic and reasonably quick. Good for Games nights. I think the Adults had more fun playing it.June 23, 2016 at 6:14 pm #18743

I’ve seen Gloom at places like Zing, but never really looked into it.
I managed to snag a copy of the out of print DOOM board game from a Facebook group for not too much. Now to track down the even dearer expansionJuly 4, 2016 at 5:52 pm #20109
Gloom is amazing, very funny to play with the right people
I think I’m going to have to find a new group to play with though as my regular group are quite casual, and I want to pursue some of the more intensely strategic gamesJanuary 16, 2017 at 11:13 am #33256

Super keen to give it a go, save the goondocks, and find WillyJanuary 24, 2017 at 3:03 pm #33725
