As some of you know, there’s a (private) group meeting this week in Columbus,
OH for Alan Moon’s Gathering of Friends.
Check out this great article in the
about the growth of boardgaming in the US.
I received my copy of Fresh
Fish from Plenary
Games on Saturday and got a chance to play it
for the first time tonight. Julie humored me with a quick 2-player game. I’ll
do a more thorough review shortly, but I have to say that I can’t wait to play
this with 3 or 4 players. Fresh Fish is a tile placement game with a small
auction element and a big puzzle/deduction element. The rules are very simple,
but I can see the strategies being quite complex. This game only took about 15
minutes to finish; I would guess that each additional player would add 10-15
I’ve mentioned Jacob and Matthew (my two sons) here frequently, but I thought
it would be nice to show a picture of them. So here you go!
