So many pagodas ⛩ in century: eastern wonders. this is currently my favorite of the series, but i’m excited to get my copy of century: new world 🏜 soon. ——
have you played any of them, what’s your favorite and have you played any of the combined games?

Century a new world || so many of the reviews said this is the best century. not quite ready to commit to that yet, having played only one game... but it's good! impressively good.
i am really amazed that there is such a successful worker placement game in this small box. granted, i'd appreciate a full sized board and some larger meeples that i'm not constantly knocking over accidentally because they're freaking teeny.
i get it though, has to fit in with the other boxes. we're still converting one cube to another to gain point cards. however, we're now using our workers to activate locations to get said cubes. also point cards come with set collection symbols and you can grab up to three bonus tiles that either give you more workers or let you score your symbols that you've collected. this should not be ignored--it's possible to score as much in tile bonuses as in point cards themselves.
definitely a great addition to the century games and i really don't know how each game feels so different but are good in their own ways! i didn't like the combined spice road/eastern wonders game so i'm intrigued to see what the combinations will look like with new world.
quotable 🤣 "wake up you guys!" #centuryanewworld#planbgames#emersonmatsuuchi
after nusfjord, my boyfriend and i joined my meetup buddies at the con for a 4p game of railroad revolution 🛤🚞 my bf won, while my meetup friend came a close 2nd, 227-222-195-187. both of them went for the western union strategy of course 😂
we used the designer variant that apparently makes the western union strategy less ‘broken’, but it didn’t seem to change the game too much. western union is an easy source of money, points and other bonuses, so it’s hard not to go for it.
the op strategy detracts from an otherwise fun game. the worker placement was fun and unique with the different-coloured workers, which had variable actions depending on the core action being used. i also always enjoy a route-building game, so this was right up my alley.
a good game that i’d love to play again, though i probably wouldn’t buy it since my boyfriend found the op strategy a dealbreaker 🤷🏻♀️

Evening games of onitama by @arcanewonders 🤼♂️
a very quick simple abstract game of perfect information. aim of the game is to take your opponents master or get your master into their base. what i really enjoy about this one is that in any one game there will only be 5 possible moves. these cards can be seen by all players, this adds a fantastic tactical layer as you share these moves with your opponent. it’s all about when you play certain cards to make certain moves, attempting to trap your opponent into giving you the cards you need. really good back and forth and it’s speed makes it very replayable.
one of my favourite abstracts

Spoiler alert: the blue meeple does not like this game!
we recently bought nmbr9 at our flgs mid year sale for 50% off the red meeple was excited as she’d had her eye on it a while.
the short of it is we will struggle to get it to the table but the red meeple will persevere!
