Boardgame Junkies


January 29, 2013 by Amie M

It’s over. The Wheel of Time has come to an end. But the wheel will keep turning, as it always has, but our peak into the lives of Robert Jordan’s world has finished. Now that we are done sitting on the couch and listening to 40 hours of an audiobook, Paul and I are trying to figure out what to do with our time! What did we do before aMoL?

Realizing how much of a set of hermits we’ve become during that time, I think it might be a good idea to try to have some friends over more often to partake in some gaming awesomeness. Just how awesome? Well, when you have amassed as large of a boardgame collection as we have you kind of overflow with the awesome.

Take a gander:

Games 1

Smallworld, Ticket to Ride, Pirate’s Cove.

Games 2

Settlers of Catan, Seafarers, Fury of Dracula.

Games 3

Star Wars Monopoly, 13 Dead End Drive, Sorry, Clue.

Games 4

For card games we have Monopoly Deal, Munchkin, Guillotine and Phase 10.

These are just the games in our living room!

The newest game to our hoard that even Smaug would be envious of is Pirate’s Cove. Paul has been trying to find this game forever! It was out of print, and the only copy available was a used version on Amazon for over 100$! Yikes! But Days of Wonder did a special reprint in honour of Talk like a Pirate Day, and we managed to grab one of the stragglers from that run. Watching Paul open his package was like watching him with Christmas presents all over again.

The winner of Pirate’s Cove is decided by the person who brags the most, has collected the most booty and has plundered and thieved from their fellow seamen.

Anyone want to play with us? Our evenings and weekends are wide open, and we can offer cookies.
