Deus was one of those games that I had picked up after it was released and heard great things about but just never seemed to hit the table. I am so glad this finally hit the table because it was a lot of fun. This area control game has players making offerings to the different Greek Gods and performing actions from the offerings and also from cards that you play to upgrade your civilization. The modular board allows for many different set ups, which in turn makes every game feel different. This was very easy to learn and teach. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes area control games or civilization building games. This is also a great game to introduce new people to those type of games. I really look forward to playing this more and is a great addition to my collection.

I had heard many great things about Patchwork and how couples really enjoy playing it together. Well I am not in a relationship and do not care one bit about quilting, so I ignored everyone. Then recently the digital form came out for Patchwork and well I am addicted. After my first day of playing it on the tablet, I ordered a physical copy and got one for a friend as well. Yep who knew quilting could be so much fun. This game combines Tetris and a light economic game to make a really fun combo. I have only played the physical copy a few times but I am completely addicted to the digital version. The goal in Patchwork is to have the most buttons (currency) at the end of the game. You lose buttons for any holes you have in your quilt. If you like puzzle type games, I would definitely recommend either downloading the digital game or picking up a physical copy. I think I may be quilting in my sleep.

When I was younger Pokemon the card game came out and I had to catch them all. I enjoyed playing against my friends and building decks. I even went to two tournaments, one of which was my first Gen Con in Milwaukee. Slowly I couldn't keep up with all the new releases and my group of friends moved on to board games. Since then I avoided anything collectible and most two player card games. I saw reviews on Dice Masters when it first came out and I enjoyed Quarriors , which it is loosely designed from. I stayed away and turned a deaf ear to the enjoyment because I did not want to get into a collectible game. Well I blame Rodney from Watch It Played, because I watched the Dice Master episodes and decided to give it a try. I love the ability to combine characters from Marvel and DC together. Dice Masters scratches that itch I had back in the Pokemon days. I didn't realize I missed it but I really did miss two player competitive games like this. I have already hooked a few So1ks members into playing as well and we can all share the same set which is nice for my wallet. I do worry that so many sets are being released but I will enjoy the wave of fun while I can. I enjoyed Dice Masters so much that I am already planning on doing a few events at Origins. Hopefully I see you there.
