TL;DR: I try something new every day and write about my top Three New Things every week. Last week was primarily board game focused because it was Who's Yer Con weekend.
Who's Yer Con- Friday
This past weekend, I attended my first
Hoosier Who's Yer Con. It was a board game lover's paradise- an entire weekend filled with just people playing board games. At final tally, I played 19 different games over the course of the weekend, and only 5 of those were ones that I'd played before. For a complete list and rating of each of the new games I tried, check out my BoardGameGeek profile. Top new games include Gangster, Tsuro of the Seas, and Space Cadets: Dice Duel.
Agent Hunter- Tuesday
At first glance, Agent Hunter appears to be a simple guessing/process of elimination game where 2 players try to kill the other teams' spies by correctly identifying their number. After several plays, however, it becomes a mental battle of trying to predict your opponents' choices without revealing your own. Best played by two people that know each others' play styles, Agent Hunter has surprising replay-ability despite its simple gameplay.
Not only are games $5-15 cheaper than Amazon.com, but members earn an additional discount that scales the more they buy over time. With the cheapest prices for both Firefly the Game and the Seasons Enchanted Kingdom expansion (the top two items on my to-buy list), I'll definitely be using CoolStuffInc for many of my future game purchases.
