Despite watching many playthroughs and reviews, I still get confused between all the games with Mansion, Madness and Cthulu in the title. Some look really good, but i just know the people i'll eventually play games with would have no interested in the dark themes.

Hi Xebec, I am familiar with most of the Cthulhu mythos games, so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them. If you are interested in them, I still say give it a shot, as most Cthulhu mythos games are cooperative, which means you can play them solo if need be.


Thanks Michael, I may go back and make sure i know which game is what and looks appealing to me, then run them by you for your opinion. Some get rated really highly.

Have any of you played any roll and write games? I never have but i see them as a fairly big sub-genre of game. There's one called Fleet the Dice Game that looks interesting.

I had GLOOMHAVEN JAWS OF THE LION delivered today. Along with THE QUEST FOR EL DORADO THE GOLDEN TEMPLES which completes my owning everything on that boardgame and its expansions. It's my favourite of what i own and play.

At the weekend i had quite of few games of El Dorado and also Flamme Rouge, which I love.

Will have to look through Gloomhaven properly, as it's definitely more complicated than what i usually play. So might not get around to it for a bit. But it's also solo player too, so I may play that beore playing it with others to get a handle on it. Who knows. if i like it i may get Gloomhaven or Frosthaven, but i think that's jumping the gun.

I really want CAMPAIGN TRAIL but it's currently being funded and not sure when it will be released retail. Other than that, I'm pretty good for now. Though i do want a space-themed game that i know i'll really want to play. There's plenty of tempting ones, but just not sure others would play them. I'll have to leave those bigger board games for you lads to enjoy and take photos of.

Anyway, it's all good fun.

Played my The Quest For El Dorado The Golden Temples (Standalone/Expansion). It was really good fun. And a few races of Flamme Rouge.

I'm at an impasse now. There's no games i REALLY want at the moment. Just some stuff that is unavailable, like the Flamme Rouge expansion. Otherwise i'm just waiting for stuff to be released later in the year. I'll have to solo play my Gloomhaven JotL.

My clan plays a Trivia Pursuit knock off game. I don't remember the name of it though.

Looking at getting BITES. It's sort of similar to Deep Sea Adventure on a surface level, but has a lot more going on with it. A quick play, easy to learn game. Looks fun.
