A Reformed Coup

December 29, 2015 – we played Coup and its expansion, Reformation, along with Splendor with CurrerBell’s parents.

Her dad loves the social deduction of Coup and I had not played the expansion yet, so it was great to see it in action.

I’m not sure yet if it improves the original, but it certainly added a new dynamic which was fun and kept things interesting.

Cardboard LAN

LANs are great, be they video or board game.

The former is what took place on February 20-21 of last year (2015) and we had a fantastic time – games played:

  • Pandemic
  • On the Brink (Pandemic Expansion)
  • In the Lab (Pandemic Expansion) – first time played with either of these expansions, but I was glad I had someone else looking at the rule book. There was a lot more to keep track of
  • King of Tokyo
  • Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation – this game is always so good. Even when you lose, it’s always so close and goes back and forth so many times. Having said that I still wish I would have won!
  • Coup – we played eight games of this and I did really well, mostly because unlike The Resistance you can use the truth more to your advantage I think
  • Hanabi – first time playing this and really enjoyed it; the goal for us was to try to be perfect rather than just win
  • Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
  • Avalon
