July has been an awesome month of board games.
Aside from and Ticket to Ride, my friends and I delved into many other awesomely obscure ones.
First, our farmers went to war in Carcasonne!
We shaped our world one tile at a time, carving out our own roads, monasteries, and castles. Each piece of land marked our destiny.
Second, the rent was too darn high in Monopoly Deal.
Everyone lost all property to one Mr. Moneybags. He collected rent after rent after rent. Even a few “Dealbreaker” cards couldn’t save us poor fellas.
Lastly, we pondered on the tao of life in Tsuro
When each tao/way/path could lead to death, everyone carefully strategized their movements to keep their smooth-stoned avatars alive. In the end we had three winners, each wiser to the way of the Tsuro.
