So because three of us were gathered in one place, and it is the law, we played Thiefs Market.
Since getting the game I’ve played the game four times, and I just love the splitting the spoils phase so much.
It’s not just the hard delicious choices you have to make. But also the ones your decisions then pose to the other players.
Despite me building up an intimating engine of cards that if fueled correctly could buy four cards a turn, I still came last. While Luke stole my short lived title and became the new King of Thieves.
Our second game (queue Guns ‘n Roses music) was Welcome to the Dungeon.
We vied to see who was the bravest, boldest one amongst us to take on the dark dungeon and it’s monsters as a barbarian.
My timid play saw me again claim last place. While not exactly being brave, more like not being quicker than Luke and myself running away, Jonathan won.
I still believe that this game should never, never, ever be played with only two players. I know that you can’t avoid that situation in a three or four player game. But this is not a two player only game. And if/when you got down to two players that is the least enjoyable part of the game.
We had a great afternoon gaming.
