How was your International TableTop Day? I wavered between hosting an event at our house or just celebrating with my family. Family won out!
We bought the game sometime last year and it was sitting on our shelf in shrink since then.
In La Granja you’re basically trying to develop your farms and deliver goods to the village. It took me a couple of rounds to get the hang of everything so I’m looking forward to bringing it back to the table again sometime.
One of the things I picked up were these Self-adhesive Clear Rubber Feet Bumpons. In La Granja, you’ll slide cards into the slots and I’d read somewhere that these help facilitate that.
I don’t think it was a necessary purchase, but it was a fun add-on.
Our last game for the night was The Castles Of Burgundy. (BGG link here.) Castles of Burgundy is my favorite game. I love it so much I made my husband sick of it because there were a couple of weeks when I played it obsessively on boitajeaux.net, an online gaming portal, and had like 7 games running at one time!
If there was an app version of this game, I would be very happy…and also be unable to perform my regular, real-life duties as a wife, mom, human being!
I should mention that I didn’t win either game, and I’ve been on a game losing streak recently with my husband. Sigh. But that’s okay, the main point of playing board games is to have fun. 😉
