We had a special guest at game night last week. Alfie's older brother, lovingly referred to as Elder Alfie, came by and enjoyed a few games with us before he decided to be more responsible than the rest of us and get some sleep. Stockpile made its second appearance this year and was a huge hit. such simplicity for a stock market game. We followed that up with the huge hit Mysterium. As the ghost I can tell you this is so much more difficult than Dixit and all the better for it. Loved this awesome mutated insanity of Clue and Dixit. We finished the night with Ryan Laukat's latest game Above and Below. This game mixes Euro sensibilities with a storytelling mechanic and it does it so seamlessly. You can hear us rave about this one on a podcast soon. We were also sent a copy of The Martian Investigations from a listener named Robin David. Excited to play this, but you'll have to wait for the podcast to hear our thoughts on this Sherlock Holmes style game set in a mining colony on Mars. The last picture was taken at Elder Alfie's house as he requested Alchemists. Honestly the picture was too perfect not to share.
