Plays: 4Px1. The Game The setting is Los Angeles of the 1940's. You are detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department. This is an age when police detectives are pretty much like licensed gangsters. You get to extort money from the real gangsters. Every scenario you play is one case. You need to solve the case within a time limit, after which the trail goes cold and the case is never solved

Plays: 2Px1, 3Px2, 4Px1. The Game Illusion is yet another game from Wolfgang Warsch which I tried recently. He designed The Quacks of Quedlinburg, The Mind and Fiji. He has been on a roll. Most of his games have some interesting twist. When Jeff recommended I check out Illusion, I was happy to give it a go. The kind of judgement you need to make in a game of Illusion is how big the area

Plays: 5Px1. The Game I was a big fan of Race for the Galaxy back in the day. 800+ plays. The only game I have played more of is Ascension, at 1200+. I played Race for the Galaxy heavily throughout the first expansion arc, only slowing down around the third and last expansion in that arc. I bought the second expansion, but didn't play much. I didn't buy the third expansion arc. I bought and

If anyone is caught

Plays: 4Px1. The Game Western Legends is an open world game set in the wild wild west. You are cowboys (in the loose sense of the word and not specifically cow herders). You freely roam the map and you get to do lots of different things, interacting with many different locations and people. You goal is to score victory points, here called legendary points (LP). Whoever reaches 20VP triggers

Plays: 5Px1. The Game Scythe, published in 2016, is currently ranked 8th at BGG. I only played it for the first time this year. I missed the opportunity when it was hot. Recently when Han visited Kuala Lumpur he suggested to bring it to play with us, and I happily agreed. Scythe was inspired by a series of artwork by Polish artist Jakub Rozalski. He created a 1920's Eastern Europe in an

I bought and wrote about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle last year. I played up to Game 3 (of 7) then, and stopped. I recently resumed playing. I started over at Game 1, and this time I made it all the way to Game 7. I did Game 1 and 2 with my wife Michelle and younger daughter Chen Rui. They hadn't played the game before. Elder daughter Shee Yun did Game 1 to 3 with me last year. I bought the game

Plays: 4Px1. The Game Just one week after Allen, Ivan and I played Neanderthal, we did the sister game Greenland, this time with Sinbad joining us so we had the full complement. Greenland was published first, so Neanderthal is a refined version with a different setting. I prefer Neanderthal to Greenland. However Neanderthal supports at most three players, compared to Greenland which supports

Plays: 3Px1. The Game Neanderthal is a Phil Eklund design, and he is famous for complex rules and rich themes. Neanderthal is the sister game of Greenland. It was released later, but the setting is of an earlier age, so I guess you can call it a prequel. In this game you play prehistoric human species, the Neanderthals being one of them. You evolve, you develop language skills, and you form
