Title: Board games general
Post by: RKS on 01 February 2021, 17:55:40
... Discuss board games here...

And most card games (Yugioh goes in its own thread)...

Monopoly and Uno, fun...
Scrabble too (which gets educational)...

I could suggest chess (I remember that some of Shane's forums allowed us to play chess matches, which I ought to do sometime in the future) or my favourite, Snakes and Ladders.

... I remember playing some board game known as "Ludo"...

Chess is fun too. Cibryll loves her pawn formation... apparently someone from the Dragon Riders forum has never seen it before...

But that is a brilliant formation.

RNBQKBNR
PPPPPPPP

Something like that...
Pawns protecting each other is neat... and hard to say what move may follow, at times...

I've heard of that game along with backgammon. Also if Cibryll can come up with formations like that, then I'd be up for having a chess match with her in the future.

I enjoyed Chess in the past, but I haven't played it much in many years now. I guess I'm too lazy to learn how to get good at it. It's like, I could learn if I had the drive to, but I just don't care enough.


I spent 4,000 hours becoming like the 5th best in the world at Celeste, then I gave up in frustration. Chess has been around forever, so I'd have to spend like 10 times longer to become the 5th best at that.


Lately, however, I've been learning The End Is Nigh. I'm hoping to become the champion at that, someday. When/if Silksong comes out, I want to speedrun that as well. I believe it will be the greatest game of 2021, if it does indeed come out.




Back to the topic of board games: I've been really enjoying Don't Mess With Cthulhu lately. It's a social logic game, like Forum Mafia. However, unlike Forum Mafia, I don't despise all of the other players by the end of the game.
