Wow, where did February go? And how is it that it feels like the holidays were just yesterday? Well, here we are in March, and I haven’t been blogging as much I had hoped to. As I mentioned on Instagram, I got a new job early February, and my entire schedule has been non-stop and action-packed! With a bit of board gaming in there, naturally. So here’s a few things I was up to last month, and a few goals for March …
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that last Friday I got to meet the Game Boy Geek himself, play games are his house and bask in the glory of his awesome board-game room. How cool is that?! I seriously still get starstruck when I meet folks from the Internet who are very active in the board-gaming world. And it all came to be because of a happy coincidence!
So for those who know me in real life, neat and organized are not the two words that come to mind when describing me. I kind of live off the philosophy of organized chaos. I know where everything sorta is but in no way could my home be mistaken for a clutter-free zone. Except when it comes to my board games.
Hey folks! Let’s talk Five Tribes, a game I just received from Christmas. It’s a 2-4 player game that lasts about 60 mins. I swear though, it really should’ve been a 5-player game since it is called Five Tribes. But I digress. The tribes are actually the different colored meeples in play for the game.
The game is about controlling tiles on the board through bidding for turn order, and then picking up and dropping off meeples. The person with the most victory points at the end wins the game.
So it’s been a crazy few weeks with the holiday season and then me getting sick. But now I’m back to 100 percent and trying to make up for lost gaming time. I totally get cranky when I don’t game at least twice a week.
First off, I received Five Tribes for Christmas from my sister. Woohoo! Who doesn’t love a giant bag of meeples?!? I plan to write up an overview about it soon. I was lucky enough to travel to my hometown for the holidays, and, of course, I never travel without a board game or two in my luggage.
