Conesy’s Diary: Episode 47 Fun Playing with Alchemy in Theophrastus

Theophrastus

On this episode I review the game of Theophrastus from Mayfair Games. This game has been out of print for quite some time, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great game. Bonus is that you can still get a copy of it from Noble Knight Games.

During the show, I meet with J from @lindmangames on Twitter. He’s been playing a game a day with his family for over 340 days now and counting. Follow him on Twitter to get all of the updates.

In Game Play

The game is a card game where you play cards from your hand and add them to your tableau or potentially interact with the client’s tableau. Your goal over the course of the game is to match Theopfrastus formula that you only know partial information of. If you do it well, you score more points. Most points is the winner!

Check out the episode to learn more of the game and our thoughts!

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 45 Seven Wonders in a Two Player Duel

7 Wonders Duel

Seven Wonders was a great card drafting game when it was released. With more of us looking to entertain ourselves at home, it just doesn’t work as well in the two player game. 7 Wonders Duel puts all of that together in a little two player box.

Conesy takes the time to review this brilliant little game. Catch the full review by downloading the show now!

Kickstart Monday: Racing for Beer and Board Game Survival

Welcome to the week! Time to get it started right with two new crowdfunding projects coming to you from the land of Kickstarter. We will be racing for beer and picking up our essentials for board game survival. Let’s check the featured projects out!

The Belgian Beers Race US Edition

Grand Gamers Guild has a new project and this time you will be racing around Belgium, sampling great beer, and trying not to get too intoxicated in the process. If that doesn’t sound like a college European vacation then I am not sure what does!

The game will take place over three game days. The game appears to use an action time track where various actions take differing amounts of time. Whoever is furthest behind (has the most time) is the next person to activate. When the day runs out of time then the round is done for you.

During each round you will need to travel by hitch hiking, buss, or biking around Belgium to reach each brewery. Of course, once you stop you can choose to take a taste and purchase beer, purchase cheese, and meet up with the other players. Of course all of these activities take time. Worst of all, meeting up with friends and tasting beer will move you up on the breathalyzer track. Move too far up and you will lose time the next day!

Each round you will score points for various activities. If you have what it takes for a wild, beer soaked ride in Belgium then you should probably do that instead. However, for the rest of this, we can relive one of our college vacations when we play The Belgian Beers Race.

Make 100: The Board Game Survival Kit

Sit down to play a game at the table, just to find out the game doesn’t have components for your player color? Tired of getting confused during the game because you had to settle for a player color you usually don’t play? Well bring your own player pieces in this handy tin in this project.

Atikin Games, the publisher of this Kickstarter, is including a tin to hold your survival kit, 5 meeples, 2 dice, a plastic player marker, and a round cylinder in the kit. You can upgrade the kit to have a custom an updated logo on the tin, a deluxe version that includes a set of polyhedral dice and bag, and several of the Atikin board games in various bundles.

This is a great little way to help ensure you don’t get mixed up the next time you play a game.

Explore the Final Frontier in Ganymede the Board Game

Ganymede

I dreamed of exploring space as a child. I loved staring at the stars at night. Growing up in rural Wisconsin allowed for me to have a good view of the night sky. Dreaming of that exploration can be made a little more real in Ganymede the board game.

In Ganymede you will play as a corporation that is seeking to colonize our solar system. Collect colonists of different types on Earth, use Mars as a stop off point, and then fly off to parts of our solar system!
