    Today I Played...

    Yesterday, I went to my friend's housewarming party. She requested that I bring Dice Forge, which we played together once at my parents' house. As the host, she didn't get to sit down and play the entire game, but she did play a round for someone. It was an interesting experience for me to teach Dice Forge to people with varying interest in board games. One guy saw the box and asked us to find him when we started playing. He had been researching the game and was debating if he wanted to get it. Dice Forge has many components - cards and dice pieces - so it looks overwhelming as you set it up. Luckily, there aren't too many rules and everyone seemed to get the hang of it after the first of nine rounds. I ended up in second place, behind a former volleyball teammate who was skeptical about playing at first. He said he usually doesn't like games that involve luck. But, when you win any game, you're bound to like it, right? Overall, a positive reception and I discovered some other board game fans!

    Dumbledore’s Army - Task 2

    The first thing that I would do is go play with all the neat gadgets. Then, I'd walk along the bookcases and take down books that look interesting until they get so heavy or I can't hold any more of them in my arms. I would settle in the most comfortable blue silk cushion and sift through the pages as I wait for everyone else to arrive.

    Today I Played...

    Last month, I purchased The Castles of Burgundy when the price dropped during one of the many holiday sales. Each player gets to perform two actions based on their dice rolls, ultimately trying to get the most points through tile placements and selling goods. I like most games that involve dice and there are many different ways to earn points. The maps aren't all the same, so some games aren't as balanced as others. Overall, I've enjoyed it. My youngest brother backed a Kickstarter card game of a video game that he plays - The Binding of Isaac. The card game is called The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls. The goal is to be the first player to collect four souls. Most souls were found on the Monster Cards. Successful dice rolls were required to defeat monsters, but everyone died a lot. We played a game with six people and it took very long. I ended up with three souls, but my other brother won by defeating Satan. My sister got me two of the Terraforming Mars expansions for Secret Santa. The Prelude expansion basically gives players production and resources at the beginning of the game. Rather than starting with nothing, each player gets to pick two out of four Prelude cards. For my first Prelude game, I chose all the cards that allowed me to gain as many cards as possible. I got the Planner milestone for the first time, but didn't plan so well for the rest of the game. The Colonies expansion allows players to build colonies on various moons. It is also possible to trade with the colonies by sending trade fleets. The colonies added another potential action, which was interesting. Several of the Colonies cards had "floaters" that were introduced in the Venus Next expansion. In a Terraforming Mars game with both the Prelude and Colonies expansions, my brother and I ended up with the same TR. But he won the tiebreaker by having 3 more credits than me I also received Codenames Duet. The rules are the same as regular Codenames, where each person gives one word clues. This version is cooperative and all players are working together to find 15 agents within a set number of turns. It's fun, but can be rather challenging to connect the words. To pass the time on New Year's Eve, I played Splendor with my siblings. (Cody got to try Mario Kart on the Nintendo Switch my nephews brought over.) I have one brother who never really wants to play board games with us, but he dominated that game of Splendor. We welcomed the new year with a classic - The Settlers of Catan! We played the six player expansion, which allows a Special Building Phase between each turn. I was doing pretty well and got to eight points thanks to my sheep port, but we all lost to the same brother who won Splendor.

    Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four - Task 2

    The Blizzard of January 1982 inspired a group of Hogwarts students to try to set the record for the longest magical snowball fight in history. As always, word spread throughout the school and more and more students wanted to join in the effort. The roomy secret passageway on the fourth floor seemed to be the ideal location since students could stop by between lessons to throw snowballs. After a few weeks, the constant freezing and thawing of the corridor to maintain the snowy conditions weakened the stone. The friendly snowball fight eventually morphed into an all-out duel. A stray Diffindo spell ricocheted off the mirror and hit a crack in the ceiling, causing the cave-in, ending the record-breaking snowball fight attempt and probably saving a few lives and friendships.

    Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four - Task 2

    The secret passageway that Sirius suggests has since been caved in, according to the Weasley twins. What do you think caused the cave in? When did it happen? 10 scales if posted by Monday 31st December, 23:59 HOL time.
