Bought Two Great New Boardgames This Week 10/10/2008 11:11:00 PM

Hey Fellas,

In the past couple months I've picked up around 10 new boardgames.  But this past week was really special, as I grabbed copies of Stone Age and Galaxy Trucker.  They are real different from each other, but I would suggest both of them.  It's hard to really describe them if all you've really played is Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, etc.

They are much, much better than any of those games. 

Info on Stone Age: boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/34635 .  This is a  "worker placement" style game where you try to build the best tribe through collection of wood, brick, stone, gold many other things.  A great game for anywhere from 2 to 4 players.

Info on Galaxy Trucker: boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/31481.  The first half of the game, you rush to build a spaceship using tile pieces that represent cargo holds, engines, cannons, etc.  The second half you watch as your ship and your opponents' ships are beaten up as they cruise from one planet to another planet.

Good blog Rob.

Keep the reviews coming and maybe I will finally find a game to replace backgammon, risk, stratego or poker!

if you find a game that there is one more that is unstoppable, let me know! :)
