A Gaming Christmas Advent

I am trying to play a game every day over December.  This seemed like an easy task but I was wrong.  We are only on Day 7 and I am finding it hard to complete this goal.  I am playing a lot of games with my 7 year old daughter and have resorted to playing solo games – or solo variants for multi-player games.  I am going to start play testing games and including that as a ‘play’.

Tonight I will be playing Forbidden Island and Taluva solo games.  I already went through the rules of Panic Station which will hit the table tomorrow.  It will be nice to play with friends – once a week is not enough.

PS.  I love playing games with my daughter but Guess Who? can only played so many times.   Tomorrow we will play Rattlesnake, Kids of Carcassonne and I will teach her a variant of  Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries.  Here is what I am going to do:

  1. Use markers to show which routes she has to complete.  She is a little young to find the Scandinavian countries but I am sure after a few plays she will catch on to some of them.
  2. Let her put her cards in front of her in groups – this is not a competitive game so I am not going to block my daughter for the win (unless she keeps beating me)

On the design front:

  • Have a Rainbow/Pot of Gold dice game that I am testing
  • The Streets of Pamplona tiles have been printed.  Now I have to work on rails
  • Cards being printed for Tower of Doom
  • Maybe play test Space Pirates game tomorrow (we will see – not feeling good about it right now)
