You guys. GUYS.

Hey, you guys.

Guess what?

IT’S THE RETURN OF #TabletopGails!

Hahahahaha! This week, guest co-host is MR. BISCUIT!

So, the lovely folks at @MongoosePub said they would like to ‘send a few things’ and after finding out they published new versions of a couple of my all-time favorite RPGS, I got all happy and excited.

Then we went to the #MagicPorch to get the boxes…

2/
The BOXES WEIGH A TON.

I suspect they may have undersold the amount of stuff they were sending!

Ooooh!

Meanwhile LOOK AT THESE MONSTERS RIGHTCHERE!

Okay, today on @TableTopGails, this is a very short one, but I got two surprise boxes on the #MagicPorch today and I just opened them up and both are WOW.

I don’t believe either has been shown anywhere before, so prepare for a bit sneak peek from @wizkidsgames!

1/
First up, holy crap, this looks so cool!

It’s the EMPYRE MINIATURES GAME from @wizkidsgames!

2/ Image
I was confused for a moment, because @wizkids also makes non-clip minis, and this doesn’t say Heroclix right away, but this game IS standalone, OR can be played with other Heroclix. It is from a recent mega-event in the comics (which I haven’t read yet!).

Okay, due to work, I've gotten a little behind with the #TableTopGails reports (AND last week's was massively huge). BUT I have been asked a lot about shorter, simpler games that people can play quickly so I thought I would talk about that a little and names some new faves!

1/
So, every day, either at breakfast or lunch, @rocketspouse and I, sometimes with Rocketkid, go out on our back patio and play a new game. We call these “Cup O’ Tea” games because they are quick to learn and we have them with a cup of tea. Here’s the view!

2/
First, LAST WORD STANDING, by @chroniclebooks, a very high quality word/card game, with an interesting twist.

You form words not just from your own cards, but also those of the other players, and from ‘community’ cards.

Great for wordplay fans!

HEY!

I have a super-short #TableTopGails thread today, just five items!

HEY! It's SHORT!

But MAN, were these games fun!

1/
Okay, so this lovely company that makes a lot of family games and puzzles, @ThinkFun, saw that we love Escape Room and mystery games, and sent this big lovely box...and I really want to talk about two of them that we freaking LOVED.

2/ Image
The games I want to talk about in particular are the COLD CASE games, but first, check out these ESCAPE THE ROOM games...we have played a few from other companies, but they were not this elaborate...these look incredible. Anyone played them?

Hey. Hey you guys. :)

1/
Okay, here is the thing...there is a backlog of games that have been sent to my #MagicPorch, and I don't want to get behind so I am going to do some shorter ones once in a while to catch up for #TableTopGails!

WOOT! So this is just a couple things, but FUN!.

IT HAPPENED AGAIN AGAIN!

#TableTopGames

The Peninsula O’ Games has become a small Continent O’ Games!

#2
Okay, now, I have played NONE of these games yet, so if you worked on them, or published them, or have PLAYED them, please jump into the conversation, okay? Would love to hear from you!

That;s the funnest part of these threads!

Also, who is singing?

HEY!

You GUYS!

Yayyyy! Okay, on Sunday I did a #TableTopGails thread, but it had to be broken into two parts. WELL, HERE IS THE SECOND PART!

And it’s got some of the COOLEST STUFF!

Let’s look! Please feel free to jump in with questions or comments, that’s the best part!

2/
Legal note, all these games today were given to me, I didn’t pay for them, nor am I paid for commenting on them. All opinions are my own. I have not played most of these yet so I would love to hear from those who have! I do this for the love of games, hooray!

Okay, there has actually been a bit of a lull in #MagicPorch activity, so in today's #TabletopGails, we played two games that were among the MOST SUGGESTED by you!

WOOT! They are by two of my favorite companies, too.

This was FUN. Let's see what they are!

1/
First is MARVEL SMASH-UP by @TheOpGames, and
DISNEY’S VILLAINOUS: DESPICABLE PLOTS by @RavensburgerNA!

Both of these games are hit series, these are the specific sets we played...both are standalone AND expansion sets.

Common factor was FUN.

2/ ImageImage
Start with MARVEL SMASH UP.

As always, if you have played these games or have questions, please feel free to jump in the thread...the designers and publishers often join in at some point and can be very helpful!

This is the Marvel version of a big hit series.

So I want to talk a LITTLE bit about this #TabletopGails thing. It started because I asked on twitter if people had suggestions for board games to try. That's it.

But it has kind of exploded a bit. :)

Tons of publishers and designers kindly sent games to try, and...

1/
...they keep coming!

The thing is, the gaming has really helped my little family during quarantine. It's exercised our creativity, logic, imagination, and socialization. We have been loving it.

And I genuinely want to share that with as many people as I can.

2/
I am not monetizing anything. The games are given to me, my opinions are my own, no one is paying me.

I just think it could help a lot of people, and maybe give some folks ideas for games they might enjoy.

I know I keep saying this but it's why I keep doing it. :)

Hello, again! As many of you know, I have been delving deep into tabletop games, mostly for fun, but also because I genuinely believe that during quarantine, they can have a positive effect on people. And the community has been lovely and I am grateful. However...

1/
I want to share this enthusiasm with others, and it seems to be going very well, except for a lot of nice folks who would love to jump in, but for two reasons;

1) They don't have anyone to play games with and

2) Cost

2/
Now, it turns out that the game community is aware of these and we did a big thread about games you can play solo or online easily, with some great suggestions.

So now I want to talk a little bit about cost. Gaming CAN be super expensive. But it doesn't have to be!

HEY! It's another thrilling episode of #TabletopGails!

As many of you know, I asked for suggestions for board games a couple weeks back and roughly a billion games got sent to my house. HUZZAH! We are playing one new game a day and then I talk about them here with you nerds!
1/
Okay, I am slightly behind so today I am going to briefly cover TWO games we have tried, and cool fact: they are two of the MOST requested games for us to try of the entire Peninsula O’ Games that has come to my door. What are they, you ask?

2/
FIREBALL ISLAND by @RESTORATIONGAME and

HORRIFIED by @RAVENSBURGERNA!

These are two we were dying to play!

And so we PLAYED THE HELL OUT OF THEM, YOU GUYS.

Okay! Today, we wanted something fun and light for #TabletopGails today, and we chose this...GODZILLA MONOPOLY from @TheOpGames!

I know what you’re thinking, just boring old Monopoly, right?

Turns out, we had a blast. :)

1/ Image
Even if you are not a huge fan of Monopoly, I have to say, we had a blast with this set.

First, we got rice crackers for snacks, we played Showa Era- Godzilla soundtracks for atmosphere, and it was just sheer kaiju fun from the minute we opened the box. Godzilla bucks!

2/ Image
There are two sure things with this company’s games...they are beautifully designed and the components are always top-flight.

You have six classic kaiju tokens and a first-class presentation of all the pieces. The board is also gorgeous.
