It's a Christmas Awesome Pack!
Well, it's not explicitly Christmas, but since it's December it's hard not to associate the box with the holiday. Will this box be naughty or nice? Time to open it up and see...
This looks interesting. I love strategy games, and this doesn't sound quite like any other that I've played before. I'll have to play-test it with Seanie soon, since it's a two-player game.
THE STRUGGLE FOR CATAN CARD GAME
I love Settlers of Catan! I can't remember if I played this card game before, but it's a great idea. Taking a great board game and translating it into a smaller, more portable version is definitely a winning idea. Next time Seanie and I go somewhere on a plane, I'm taking this with us so we can play it while we're in the air.
LET'S PLAY IT-DAH-GAN
I'm not so excited about this one, although it is another game. It-Dah-Gan seems...childish, for lack of a better descriptor. You have cards printed with words like "DAH-Top" "DAH-Bottom" "in-DAH-pitz" etc, and you discard them as fast s possible to become the first person with less than fifty points. Other players trip you up with the cards they throw down, forcing you to take more cards. It's got fast game play and it seems pretty basic, but it doesn't seem challenging. We'll see, though. I haven't actually played it yet.
No weird accessories in this box like Hulk cards or Adventure Time dog tags - hooray! I might have to take a break from this subscription box, though. I enjoy it every month, but I've got plenty of games now. I should give myself and my family a chance to play them all before getting more.
