One correction to save us some money, it is Oceania not Oceanic for the Wingspan expansion. Not sure why it got stuck in my head that it was Oceanic. Aside from that, good expansion if you don’t already have it for Wingspan. And for those who haven’t figured it out, Toot-a-Loop.
Gutenberg is one of the Euro games that people will enjoy for the simplicity of it and still feel like they were challenged strategically to beat their opponents. The planning phase can determine if you get what you need, but even if you don’t, you might have to adjust your strategy as you move down the execution order to achieve what you wanted to do. For example, maybe you needed a new order but didn’t like the one you were left with, then you might adjust a gear that lets you take a new order this turn at random. Little things like that might make a difference in your game.
Cat in the Box is going to be a big game for the card players looking for that next challenge. I remember when Diamonds hit the scene and everyone was enjoying that game. See the same future for this game as well.
Sakura Arms, Orlog and Radlands are enjoyable lunchtime games for two players. Look into those if you got a gaming pal at work.
Thanks for listening and we appreciate all the support
