18xx: A History [Part 2]

I adore the 18xx series of games, I might have a slight addiction because of 18xx.games. Access to all of these fun game titles got me thinking. What commonalities do games with in the series have? Differences? Which games inspired others? While I tried to be as comprehensive as possible, I know I didn't get all of the details. Leave a comment if you see anything that needs to be changed!

Stationfall Stats

fall is a game of hidden identities, secret relationships and asymmetric goals. Players are given two character cards at the beginning of the game - one will be their main character and one will be their secondary character. And I was really curious about the choices people have made in our games and the popular winning character. As well as the unloved characters. This only covers about 12 games (all of which can be found on the MCG YouTube Channel or the Guerric Samples Games YouTube Channel). I'm very excited to see the results and watch the game stats change as more and more games get played! Continue Reading →

Root – A Deck Comparison

I recently got a request to do a comparison between the two decks from Root: A game of Woodland Might and Right by Leder Games. The Standard Deck comes with the base game while the Exiles and Partisan deck is available as an expansion for the game. Since each deck is balanced in their own way, there are some big similarities between the decks but there was also some surprising differences. And there were somethings that I learned even though I'm pretty sure I inherently knew them, but I never did the math before. So, without further ado, let’s drive in! Continue Reading →
