For today’s Board Game Brunch we played Ghostbusters published by Cryptozoic Entertainment for Board Game Brunch. This cooperative game is based on the 1984 film. Ghostbusters is a great game for fans of the movie, you play as one of the Ghostbusters. With each Ghostbuster having unique abilities and ghosts springing up at you, the movie feel definitely comes through.

Our scenario objective was to trap the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man. All four characters needed to contribute to corralling him. Towards the end, tt got a little tricky as our actions were limited while we were covered in so much slime. Nonetheless the Ghostbusters prevailed and sent the Stay Puff Marshmallow man away.

Not the healthiest brunch, but a fun one. Egon used the Twinkie in an analogy to explain how extreme the current psychokinetic energy (PKE) levels were during the first Gozer incident. So, of course, that has to be included. Additionally, to commemorate our defeat of the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man, we roasted him over fire.

Board Game Brunch: Out of this World French Toast with Ganymede

Today we went out of this world to play Ganymede by Sorry We are French and enjoy some brunch staples, French toast and mimosas.

In 2019, I attended my first GenCon. Ganymede was a game I signed up to play after doing some brief online research. During our first game we went online and secured a copy.

Board Game Brunch: Ganymede Game Setup

In the game you are recruiting settlers from Earth to travel to Mars and then Ganymede. Today we played with the Moon expansion. This expansion adds additional opportunities to recruit advisors, which provide additional bonuses and help to achieve your goal. Check out our full review of the base game: http://wiscodice.com/ganymede-board-game-review/

Board Game Brunch: Ganymede Mid-Game State

My company just couldn’t get into a rhythm and was left in the dust as my husband pushed his company. I may have lost hard in today’s game, but that won’t deter me from playing this again.

Board Game Brunch: Dog Enjoying Ganymede

Our dog had to see what was going on, we were having so much fun.

Board Game Brunch: French Toast and Mimosas

For brunch we ate French toast. To launch the entrée out of this world, we made it with Cinnamon Crunch bread and topped it with summer flavors. Toppings included real whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and of course our favorite maple syrup. This Cinnamon Crunch Bread looks complicated, but was one of the easier breads I’ve made.

Excited to Unbox and Review the Diamond in the Sand: Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun

Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun

When I originally saw Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun I felt this game was a gimmick and didn’t think there was a game here. It went on sale, and as a surprise, my wife bought it and gave it to me after a bad day of work. That’s definitely a way to brighten one’s day!

Little did I realize how delighted I would be. Tekhenu is a brilliant game with so many decisions with not nearly enough rounds to do them in.

If you like ancient Egypt or like using dice to power the action you are taking each round than this game is likely for you. It’s time for the Tekhenu Unboxing and Review!

  • Players: 1-4
  • Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 90 and 120 minutes

Going Crazy Unboxing Paladins of the West Kingdom

Every year my friends organize a gaming weekend we call Cabincon. We all chip in to rent a rural Wisconsin house and bring enough alcohol, food, and board games to last us usually about a month. The event is a blast! One of the best parts is all of the exposure to everyone else’s favorite games!

At our 2019 event I was introduced to Architects of the West Kingdom which is a brilliant worker placement game. I had to immediately pick it up at my local game store and get it to the table at home. Not much time after did I realize that Renegade Game Studios was producing a trilogy of these “West Kingdom” games and that it was all ready released. Recently I was able to head to the store and pick up my copy.

This Game has nothing to do with Ducks: Quacks of Quedlinburg

Quacks of Quedlinburg is a game that has nothing to do with ducks, as the name might make you think! Rather you take on the role of a doctor who throws potions of random things together and sells them for money. The better a quack you are, the greater chance you can make a great potion that scores you not only points, but plenty of cash to buy even better ingredients! Just be careful, or your pot will explode and then you have to make due with whatever goo was left in the pot.

  • Players: 2-4
