Ticket to Ride Europe

Well, one of my coworkers bought Ticket to Ride Europe this weekend, so it looks like we will be playing that on Friday instead of my USA edition.

And, another ordered the USA edition from Amazon, so it seems to be quite popular. Maybe Days of Wonder should give me a kickback or something?

With the holidays approaching, there will be less time for a regular gaming schedule. I think that goes for everyone, not just me.

But, there is time to spend with family and friends, which is nice.

Having time home from work means more leisure time too! I think I'll get in some more time playing DDO (check out my my.ddo blog too), and hopefully a few board games and card games (cribbage is a family favorite).

I'll also be able to take care of my fish more. My three spot gouramis are a little bigger, but are still on the small side. The white clouds are about the same size, but my harlequin rasboras and gold barbs are quite large now.

So today I tried to get Muckbane with my Drow. It took way too many times, but I finally got it!

1st, did it three times on normal, all the way through. No Muck.

Then I tried it on Hard. No Muck, died running around doing optionals.

Then I did it on Solo. All the way through, No Muck.

Back to Hard. Got Muck, but no Muckbane. Recalled out. Then again, and again. So, on my third Muck, got a Muckbane.

On the plus side, I did get lots of xp for the 3x normals, 1x solo, and several optionals throughout. And the festival coins, too!

Ticket to Ride

It turned out that we had a full group of people (five) last Wednesday to play Ticket to Ride at work. We didn't quite get a full game in as we ran out of time, so we had to call it a little early.

I brought it in again today at someone's request, and we played in the main break room. There seemed to be quite an interest in the game and a few people watched for a while. And I'll be bringing it again next week.

Overall it's quite a fun game! We might switch to Settlers of Catan if people grow tired of it.
