A Look into Pandemic

My husband and I got into playing board games quite recently. Thanks to YouTube channels like Tabletop Games and Watch It Played, we’ve become addicted to these things. It’s only been a couple of months since we started playing co-op games together, but we’ve already bought several games. Our latest acquisition is Pandemic, made by Matt Leacock and published by Z-Man games. We couldn’t find a copy of this back in Manila, despite visiting several gaming stores. Thankfully, they had plenty of copies here in Welly and we got one from Cerberus Games.

A Look into Splendor

2018 seems to continue as a year for gaming love here in our home! As we weren’t able to fly back to Manila for the holidays, my husband and I decided to play hosts for a small gathering of sorts for New Year’s Eve. My cooking that night was unfortunately not my best, but thankfully it didn’t spoil the rest of our evening. We welcomed the new year with our friends over food, drinks and both board games and video games. It’s an awesome way to start the year, in my humble opinion. One of the most loved games at our disposal right now is called Splendor.

Splendor is designed by Marc André and published by Space Cowboys. It’s a 2-4 player resource management game which focuses on collecting the gems you need to acquire development cards, which in turn will earn you prestige points. The first one to reach 15 points wins the game. Pretty easy, right?

A Look into Roll for It!

S and I have recently introduced our friends here to the joys of playing board games. We have a limited amount of games to choose from right now, so our sessions usually involve a game or two of Ticket to Ride: Europe or Tokaido. If we needed a couple of quick games in between as fillers, we normally reach for Roll for It!.
