About Alex

Everyone understands prices: We may not agree with prices but we understand them. A price is simply the amount of money being asked for a given object, and and it will generally fall into a range determined by other prices available for that same item. Let’s take Cosmic Encounter, for example: looking at BoardGamePrices.com, (a […]

We started with Menachem, Adam and myself playing One Night Ultimate Werewolf, a deception game where you don’t even know what team you are on until the end. There’s nothing quite as devious as being a werewolf and avoiding being killed…only to find out you’re no longer a werewolf and as a villager you just […]

Last night started with Ezzie being late (he warned us) and Ari being even later (he fell asleep…not cool). In the meantime, Menachem, Adam and myself played two games of For Sale, a quick and easy auction game, similar to High Society. Sender won both games, Menachem was second both games, and Adam lost both […]

This last week’s game night was a quick and short one with many missing members thanks to preparing for the weekend or just straight up being out of town. We started with just Adam, and the two of us sat down to play Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation (Deluxe Edition). I will  henceforth start […]

This week, we were all privileged to once again play Kemet, an Egyptian masterpiece of conquest and mayhem. We were joined by Sender (myself), Ben, Mike, and Aviva, and after quick and relatively easy rules clarification to Aviva and Mike, the game started in a timely manner. Mike started us off, by wisely choosing the […]

This Thursday we played Kemet, in honor of Adam and his new baby. Adam couldn’t be with us tonight but I’m sure he appreciated us playing Kemet in his honor and then sticking it back on the shelf for 6 weeks. No need for thanks Adam, always happy to help a friend! After a quick […]

This was a busy week in board games! We started on Wednesday with Sender, Adam, Kyla and David playing Cosmic Encounter once again. The night started with Adam losing $50 as he decided he MUST HAVE THE COOL AWESOME INSERT. Tsk tsk Adam….you have to control that wallet spending stuff. Kid coming and all that. […]

In what is now making international news across the country, we’ve played Cosmic Encounter 3 weeks in a row….that’s a new record and one unlikely to be beaten ever again. Something about the quick playtime (2 hours once you know it), backstabbing and negotiations, and the enjoyment of having a game that Ezzie hasn’t won […]

In a rare turn of events, we played a game for two weeks in a row! Woohoo and go us. Consistency people; that’s the key. Unfortunately, despite Ben’s excitement about playing a game for the second time, apparently there were far more important things for him to do, so this week he gets the “Here’s […]

The game on the table this week was Cosmic Encounter, an epic game of cosmic negotiation and domination. Unfortunately the game started with the cosmic warp deciding that Sender had to attack Ben, but fortunately they decided to remain peaceful allies, and they negotiated a fair exchange of territories. From there the galaxy degenerated into […]

Dan gets Geek of the Week award for the second week running with his amazing on timeness. He then proceeded to out OCD Sender by DRIVING HOME to get his dice tower. We’re talking about a game with 2 dice. That were rolled maybe 10-15 times the whole game. Yup….Geek of the Week and OCD […]

This week’s game night started with Dan a very early 8:00, and no one else showing up until 8:30 or later…Nahshon called so he’s forgiven, but the rest of you are getting giant cardboard signs nailed into your lawn with big block letters “FOR SHAME”. Anyways….game night started with Dan, Adam and Ben getting an […]

Thursday started with everyone surprisingly on time and ready to go, a pleasant surprise and much appreciated. Except for the fact that Dan decided not to bring his dice tower….but whatever. Not gonna make a big deal of it. Even if it is a tiny little thing that could have been brought easily. No big […]

Last week’s game night started with Ezzie, Dan and Ari all screwing with my well organized attendance plans. Fortunately no games were actually ruined, so no one will be penalized this time. No promises for next time of course. And yes….my parties are always the Monica party. Google that if you don’t know what it […]

The truth is, before we can talk about the economics of trading, we need to talk about why you trade. There are two main reasons people trade games (or any other bartering for that matter), and the two reasons really have the same parts, but the focus on which parts matter the most is what […]
