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!

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!

Conesy’s Top 10 Favorite Board Games of All Time

I was chatting with a friend the other day when I was asked what are my top 5 board games. I thought about it for a bit, but then wasn’t really able to answer it right then. So I sat down, looked at my collection on BoardGameGeek, and started to make some tough decisions.

I am sure this list will flux a bit over the years. I am sure sometime in the future I will end up putting out a new top 10 list for this very subject. It’s hard to predict with the number of games that are coming out which games I will still be in love with and which games will fall a bit out of favor.

Not all of these games are in print anymore, but all of these games are very good.

Here’s Conesy’s top 10 favorite board games of all time. Enjoy

You Don’t Want to Let Time Slip Away in Pendulum

Pendulum

This wasn’t a game that had grabbed my attention originally. I am not sure quite what it was, but this game, like so many, was lost in the ocean of game releases.

Never fear though, my wife had flagged it and when it went on sale decided to order it. It arrived as a pleasant surprise game for us to get to the table and play.
