Nurgleprobe’s TOP 10 – Boardgames I want to get!

Capitalism, ho! Yea this is one of the weirdest top 10 lists I’ve done in the longest time, ignoring the fact that it was a very very long time since I did a top 10. So in the following list I will present to you, the top 10 games that I want to add to my collection (but because of reasons they’re not in it yet). Let go through the games and tiny motivations to why I have them in my top 10 list of “boardgames I want to add to my collection”.

At spot nr 10.

10. Warhammer 40k: Conquest
40k conquest tiny pic I’ve always been a huge fan of trading card games, but recently, I’ve decided to stop playing them and switch to LCG and other collectible games where you know the contect of the expansions (this mostly because of the huge money-sink feeling of TCGs). Conquest have the setting of one of my favorite sci-fi worlds and the gameplay appeals to me in may different ways. Planets to fight over, a joint goal from both sides and hidden movement. And being a part of a LCG in its early days is something that I would love, being able to get the new cards as they are released and learn as the game expands. Conquest together with Netrunner will be my “go to” card games from now on, thanks FFG!

9. Android
android tiny pic This is not the most popular boardgame in the world, it’s long, have plenty of tiny rules and things to keep in your head and that may not appeal to everyone. BUT I just love how all the mechanics and gameplay creates a story for the character you’re playing. Everything is put in to the game to connect you to the story and world of Android. This universe has a huge appeal to me, and it’s not by chance that I got the other two games set in the same one.

8. Chaos in the old World
chaos in the old world tiny pic This is one of those games… when you sit down and play it, you love it. But then as soon as you leave the table, you hardly remember how the game played. You just remember everything about it feeling thematicly awesome. You play as one of the four chaos gods from the Warhammer Fantasy universe and try to corrupt the old world with your evil powers and followers. I love this game and I really do want it on my shelf. Also… my nickname is Nurgle and in this game… I can not only be called Nurgle around the table, but also PLAY Nurgle. LOVE IT.

7. Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest
tanto cuore oktoberfest tiny pic All of you out there can play your Dominions and your Thunderstones, but I will stick around with my maid game Tanto Cuore. This game is loved by both me and my girlfriend and we will never say no if it’s pulled out on to the table. This cute deckbuilder puts you in the master positions of a house that you need to hire maids for… to serve you. The art is very cutesy and even tho it puts of a LOT of players, I hav not played with a single Dominion fan that have not liked this game. Behind the manga style art there is a great deckbuilder. Do not miss out on this game just because you turn your head on the theme. Oh and Oktoberfest is the fourth release in the Tanto Cuore franchise. As soon as it’s out there I’m getting it! (Yea it’s not released yet and already on my list… hm).

6. Fury of Dracula
fury of dracula tiny pic This is one of those games that have been asking for another print run for the longest time. Or well, people around the world have been asking for it. I’ve wanted to get Fury of Dracula for many many years, but when I finally started with my boardgame hobby, this game was already long gone and in the safe hands of board game collectors everywhere (and I don’t know a single one of them apparantly). One player takes the role as dracula moving secretley around a board while the other players takes the role of vampire hunters trying to track him down. A out of print game that I would love to get my hands on.

5. Battlestar Galactica
battlestar galactica tiny pic You may not know this but one of my favorite board games of all times is “The Resistance”, a game with secret identities where you try to figure out which players are trying to make your life harder. Battlestar Galactica is a cooperative board game where there may be players working against you. There is plenty of things happening in this game and everyturn there are situations that you and the other players have to solve. Will you make it through or is there players working against you stopping you from progressing, or is it just that you can’t complete it anyway? A great game that everyone should try. I have not yet played with the expansions but I’m looking forward to it.

4. Cosmic Encounter
cosmic encounter tiny pic I’ve played this game two times. And those two games had a huge impact on me, I love how everyone plays a race with a very distinct special power and how the gameplay is so inredibly simple. Even tho if there is a simple base to this game, everything above that is huge. You have to communicate, try and create agreements with other players, figure out when to help and when to backstab and just PLAY it. I NEED this game in my collection.

3. Mall of Horror
mall of horror tiny pic I’ve played the new “version” of this game called City of Horror. Sadly that new version is lacking, especially when it removed a key element of the old game: hidden voting. It was one of the best parts! You could discuss with players, make deals, but then you make that secret vote and do something completley different to what you just promised. Every player wants to stay in the game, but you can not do so by playing it alone (or by playing nice). Communicate your way to your goal and keep your survivors alive in the mall before the zombies comes a’ knockin’.

2. Dead of Winter
dead of winter tiny pic I love zombies. I love hidden traitors. I love discussing. I love story elments. This game put some of my favorite elements from games mentioned in this list and made a game out of it. I CAN NOT WAIT to get this game out on the table with a group of players and try to beat them down as the traitor…. you know… if I end up being the traitor. I’ve been waiting to get this game for a long time and as soon as it is back in stock in my local store I will be all over it.

1. Twilight Imperium 3
twilight imperium 3 tiny pic Epic. Epicness. Epic sci-fi madness. I have not yet played this game. But everytime I see a review of it, everytime I see the gameplay, everytime I feel like playing a long and epic game, Twilight Imperium 3 just pops up in my head. There is so much I think I would enjoy about this game, the space battles, diplomacy, technology, special abilities. MAN. This game. Is something I want to display and have my buddies that enjoy sci-fi just go: WHAT. LET’S PLAY THAT ONE. And I will do it, everytime. I mean… if we have 5-6 hours to spend.

Hearthstone – Bringing singleplayer and 30 new cards! [5 of them below]

HS News - Curse of Naxramas - A heartstone Adventurer

Hello Nurglings!

Blizzard just announced some awesome news for Hearthstone. They will finally give us a singleplayer like experience with a dungeon like mode within Hearhstone.
Tho the news I feel is most important to me as a constructed player (with hardly any money) is to see what the 30 new cards will be. It’s fun to see the new commons and rares that we can add to our cheap decks. And the five that has been shown so far (I was really close on the spider egg effect btw!) seems interesting enough.

Back to the event part:

The whole thing is a single-player experience within HS, you play through “five wings” and at each level you face bosses, challenges and unlock cards for your collection. Sounds sweet! I thought… until I read that beyond the first wing you will actually have to pay to enter the next stage (with gold or real money), and this kinda makes my eye twitch a little bit. I don’t mind if the gold price Is fairly costed (the same cost of a arena run would be fine with me), but anything that seems way to high for casual players would just make me irritated.

I know you want to make money, but please give the poor players a fair chance to experience this as well!

Anyway, to read more about the event format and so on go here: http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/blog/13665269

Now let’s move on to comment the cards!

HS Spoiler - New Card - Undertaker
So we don’t know about all the new Deathrattle cards that will be coming out so it’s kinda hard to say if this card is “good” or not. I would say that it’s okay at the moment. Every other Deathrattle card basicly gets a Shattered Sun Cleric battlecry attached to them (well for this card). And there are a few that already see play and are actually played in the earlier turns. Once again, not sure if that makes it worht this card for a chance of pumping it up. You probably want to play a card that makes sure you get some value. Hard to say at the moment tho, will be interesting to see if people try this card out.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Naxxramas
Okay I love this card! So the place I already see it in, is the Miracle Rogue deck. Being able to play a card turn 3 that have stealth built in that will grow every turn after that? Yes please! Seems to be a very strong card for that deck and maybe even for other decks depending on how long they want to stay in the game. Remember tho that Miracle Rogue is not the strongest deck in the game exactly but it’s fun to see a new card that works for that deck.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Nerubian Egg
This card is interesting. I was very close on my guess on this cards effect, I was right on the deathrattle and what kind of effect it would have (tho I guessed a 5/5). But I was also hoping for the card to have built in Taunt, to make it hard for your opponent to decide if he wants to attack for a turn or not. You can still give it taunt with other cards of course, or give it attack so that you can trade it with another minion and get the spider out on the field. The card gives some great value when it creates a 5/5 in a trading situations, and even giving it taunt will create strong situations for you. Your opponent dont want to attack it unless they can handle the 5/5 with what they have available to them, but not attacking it would also mean one or two wasted turns (depending on the gameplan of the deck of course). I do believe it’s a strong card, but at the same time I think it’s hard to find a great place for it right now. Is it a better Taunt card than Ancient Watcher? Maybe.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Dancing Swords
You get a cheap big creature, and it may be worth it if they waste 2+ cards on it. Most of the time they wont. So. Yea. No. The problem is that you lose the card AND your opponent gains a card. Even if he trades 1for1, he still replaces the card he used and you get nothing from it. Don’t like him. Rather play Harvest Golem turn 3 that gives me a similar situation instead of him, or even a Yeti on turn 4.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Baron Rivendare
It’s lacking the attack, but triggering Deathrattle on your minions twice? It’s pretty good actually! He’s cheaply costed enough to make it worth while as well, you get 2 minions from Harvest Golem, you draw 2 cards from Loor Hoarder, Leper Gnome deals 4 damage, Sylvanas Windrunnes takes 2 minions, Carine Bloodhoof gives you 2 minions. Spider Egg gives you two minions. Yea. Seems to be fine when the value is there!

Can’t wait to see what more they will bring to the game, and I’m excited to see how it will change the meta game and decks being played. COME ON PRIEST!

So where will you use the new cards if anywhere, are you happy with them? Dissapointed?

Until next time Nurglings, take care.

New Hearthstone Spoiler – Spider Egg ! ?

Hello Nurglings!

Just as I mention a Hearthstone ”spoiler”, it seems that another one just arrived on their social media pages! This time it’s a spider egg! Turn the picture over and you can see that there’s a spider hanging upside down inside of it. Sweet!

Card:

Bk30RJXCAAAOL8Y

So here is my guess on the card effects:

Name and cost of some sort
0/4
Taunt
Deathrattle: Summon a 4/5 spider

Name and some other fine cost
0/4
Taunt
Everytime cardname is damaged, summon a 2/2 spider.

So what’s your guess for this beautful spider card? Leave a comment below with your guess!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
