Hello, all.. No, I haven't forgotten about this blog, I just haven't had much gaming-related to say (unfortunately).
The most interesting gaming-related thing I've done in the last several weeks is to suggest an Osmosis Jones retheme of the BSG game on a Boardgamegeek thread... Yeah, really. Don't know what I was thinking.
Anyway, today I saw a link to this:
Power Grid: The Robots.
This is an awesome idea!
A lot of good games do not scale well down to 2 players.
The wife and I do play Power Grid on occasion, by the default rules, and sometimes find it a bit lacking.
We tried those special house rules (mentioned in another post) and she hated them.
But this opens up a different possibility.
And if it works, other games should definitely get on board with similar mechanics. :)
