We just completed our annual CabinCon, a four day festival of gaming in a cabin in the Pennsylvania mountains, this year by Raystown Lake. It was a great chance to get some R&R, play some great games and enjoy the winter weather. Pat, Adam, Denny and I were joined by 10 others, many of whom you’ll meet over the next weeks and months.
We’ll be digging in to Dungeon Lords next week with Adam walking us through this game!
We just completed our play of A la carte, and it was delicious!
Pat read the rules beforehand and walked Denny and I through. As we remarked when we opened up the game, the components are extremely high quality. In this case, the physical nature of the game really supports that. I don’t think the expense of the components is wasted; rather, it spices up the game nicely.
It took us just under an hour to finish our game, and I think you could reasonably trim that time even further as you get comfortable with it. The rules were very well laid out, and Pat did a good job shepherding us along. This was a very easy game to get on the table, and I imagine it will continue to spend time there.
