GNOIF #22 recap — GNOIF’s Three Hour Tour (Games about water, islands, and pirates.)
Games That Got Played: Avalon – Resistance, Dominion (Seaside), Pandemic, Pirate’s Cove, Pirate Fluxx, Forbidden Island, Ultimate Werewolf.
Games That Didn’t Get Played: Amerigo, Carcassonne, Forbidden Desert, Island Port.
I enjoy teaching new people Fluxx for the first time. It’s quick to learn, and players always have fun once they wrap their heads around the idea that the rules change almost every turn. It’s a goofy game, but planning still gets rewarded sometimes.
Fittingly, the forces of failure were everywhere — we managed to lose at least one game each of Forbidden Island and Pandemic. The evil team won two out of three games of Avalon. The werewolves won two out of three games of Ultimate Werewolf.
Thanks to everyone who played!
Those Poor People….
