The last two expansions on my wishlist, but they're very difficult to find in C1 :( I'm located on the west coast of the US.

Thank you for the report. I will have to keep an eye on the boardgame version. ^-^

I have a couple of themed versions of Fluxx: Oz and Wonderland, which I love. I know what you mean... ;)

Regarding the Pyramid games, @dronedrone might help us with this matter. I suspect he may have tried them. Hope he can enlighten us.

Reviews & Session Reports / Re: I Love the Landscape!
« Last post by kothmann on April 17, 2024, 11:31:16 AM »
At a board game meetup last night, we played with the 20th Anniversary set they had at the cafe.  To keep the game shorter, we omitted the river and the 15 arrow expansion tiles.  We included my Guesthouses expansion as a surrogate for I&C.  And we omitted the Abbots because I don't like them.   >:D

The one new player picked up the game quickly and we offered occasional tips in key situations.  Two pivotal moments: After a nasty FRFR placement by Red, Green got locked into an incomplete city (lower left) when the last CFRR tile was played; later, Green was blocked out of the massive 28-point city when Yellow got a lucky draw of the CCFF-S tile (top center).  Red won despite having only one farmer!  Here is the landscape just before final scoring:


As always, the game was fun and exciting.  And I still think a 72-tile game is the right duration, especially for new players.

On a personal note, I was definitely reminded of how much I prefer the simplicity and elegance of the C1 art.  But the game really is just great with any art!   :D

Ooooooh!!! Awesome!!!

Have lots of fun!

BTW, I'm a great fun of Fluxx... I'd appreciate your thoughts about the board game version. Thank you in advance. ;)

Just gave Fluxx the Board Game a go, and the fam and I all like it!  The shifting rules are very Fluxx-like, but the board elements give it a lot more strategy.  You can actually plan your card play and board moves toward a goal and not rely on as much luck as regular Fluxx.  For this reason, I think we like the gameplay better than Fluxx.  Regularly playing blue, I also especially like the blue meeples that it came with.   :blue-meeple:  The only thing I would fault is the bland artwork (of mundane things like a toaster, loaf of bread, and things like that).  Fluxx does theme very well (be it Star Trek, Doctor Who, super heroes or, one of my favorite Fluxxes, Jumanji).  The theme for the Board Game is very underwhelming and could've benefitted greatly by using the art styles of any of the previous mentioned Fluxxes.  (Hey, Andy Looney, if you're reading this, you do a million versions of Fluxx.  Why don't you do any other versions of the board game version??!)  So in conclusion, if I were to rate the game, I'd give it a 9 for gameplay and a 7 for theme/art for an average score of 8.   :(y)  Btw, speaking of Looney games, have you (or anyone else) tried any of their Pyramid games?  I encourage anyone to check out Pyramid Arcade, which includes a bunch of super fun games.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Meepledrone!  It was a great day of fun and a great haul of board games (and a few other things).  And I won 2 out of 3 games of King of Tokyo too.   ;D
