5 Game I’d Love To Play
For a while now, I have been watching Wil Wheaton’s web series TableTop which has introduced me to many games which I have only really seen on the shelves of stores and book stores. And since watching this series, I have been wanting to play a number of these games.
Just one problem, I don’t have a lot of friends who play games. Okay, two problems, I also don’t have a lot of free time to play many of these games.
Still, there are a number of these games that I really would like to try out, even if it is only once.
And, for the sake of clarification, there are a few exceptions. I have played Zombie Dice, so I’m omitting that. I have also played Fluxx and Ticket to Ride, though both of those were through apps that I have for my iPod.
- Elder Sign – A Lovecraftian game which pits the players against an ancient evil which threatens to destroy the world, and the players.
- Gloom – A dark card game in which the goal of the game is to make your characters as miserable as possible before killing them off. With the right group of people, you can weave an ominously peculiar story about the characters before finishing them off.
- Once Upon A Time – A semi-cooperative card game in which the players tell a fairy tale based on the cards in their hands. Naturally, you win by clearing your hand and leading the story to your ending.
- Pandemic – Another cooperative game, this time pitting the players against disease. (Viewing tip: Watch the TableTop episode where this is played. The ending is awesome)
- Resistance – Players of this game are members of a resistance group. Well, most of the players. In the group there are spies who are working against the other players to make sure they fail. Great players will be able to throw suspicion on other players while screwing them over.
