It’s black Friday, why are you reading this?
Aren’t you at the mall, shoved in like cattle among the aisles of Target trying to get a deal on a video game console at 5:30am?
For those enjoying a relaxed day after Turkey day, we ponder what is on our wish list for year end. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus or simply a world of full tabletops, we all have that next game our eye is on. Check out what the League wants!
Black Friday Bonus
If you’ve read this far, you deserve something as if you waited in a long holiday store line. For our loyal readers, courtesy of Squirmy Beast Games, BLACK FRIDAY ONLY:
How about a raffle for a gift card?!
Simple to enter: 10pts – Leave a two-part comment on the blog and click on the rafflecopter form and confirm you commented.
- PART 1: Your top wishlist game you’d love to have this year end (any title).

Part 1: Sons of Anarchy
Part 2: Banditos
Have only heard good things about Sons of Anarchy! Happy Black Friday!
1. Sentinels of the multiverse
Because of this post, I tried out Sentinels of the Multiverse finally! Thanks for playing!
Want to play it soooo bad, but my wife hates super heroes so it would never hit the table unless i played without her. Happens occasionally, but not often enough to justify a purchase!
This wouldn’t get played at my house much, but not due to super hero hate. Anyway, my answer – Sentinels on iPad. 🙂
1. Dead of Winter
2. Five Tribes
This reminds me that we should do a list of games with (somewhat) misleading titles. For instance Five Tribes only plays up to four players.
1, Dead of Winter
2. Forbidden Island
Hope you enjoyed SotM, Peter! It’s my fiancee’s favorite (and one of mine as well).
Love to have robinson crusoe righ now or Eldritch horror, love for some coop!
And Lords of waterdeep.
Pandemic: the cure
Hmm, Roll for the Galaxy is a cool looking game. Though there are no player pieces, per se, there cards that have pictures of black dice on them…does that count? 🙂 heh
Ha! Good one! Looks like there’s grey dice, but no black dice. 🙂 It seems a cool wish list game, but it can’t be both part 1 and 2 of your answer
1. Dead of Winter
2. Go (one of my favorite ancient strategy games.)
Thank you all for running the raffle and I hope you had a wonderful holiday! 😀
1. Ghost Stories
Hope everyone had a good holiday. Happy gaming
1) Castles of Mad King Ludwig too!
2. Terra Mystica
Got my eyes on Sheriff of Nottingham, and I’ve been playing black in Spyrium.
Roll for the Galaxy
and Pandemic the Cure
1. Middle Earth Quest
2. Robinson Crusoe
2. Ticket to Ride (always the last color selected in my house)
Funny enough, someone in my group always picked black in every game, and thus began my long gaming history of getting yellow.
Until you played with me. I’m always yellow.
If I’m not yellow, I accidentally reach for yellow every turn until the people I’m playing with finally give up and let me play yellow.
Super dungeon explore
(raffle copter box not loading on my cell, FYI)
Was wondering when someone would say Checkers. Good one! Yeah, I don’t know why the rafflecopter is working on some phones and not others. If you get a chance to come via desktop, we’ll have the raffle all day (and this comment has qualified you with a unique #2 pick)
Hey Jason – thanks for the comment. Ooooh, I want Abyss too actually! Matt said Spyrium above, so you’ll need a new #2 answer to qualify for the raffle
1. Marvel Legendary
2. Tiny Epic Kingdoms
1. Dead of Winter
2. Battlestar Galactica (that sexy admiral symbol)
1. Dead of Winter
2. Masterpiece (https://magisterrex.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/blogmasterpieceusfull.jpg). David C stole my#2, so I had to kick it old school… LOL
Indeed, that is old school! Awesome pick – thanks for playing!
2. Power Grid.
2. Merchant of Venus
Although I always play red, the Quossoth.
2.) Pandemic: Contagion
I want Coal Baron and What the Food has a soy sauce pointer card for players
Matthew – you’re awesome for bringing What the Food?! into this!
1) Glass Road
2) Bora Bora
2: Perry Mason! (I think this is the first time I’ve pulled that out of the closet in a quarter of a century.)
2. Carolus Magnus.
2. Settlers of Catan (the Robber!)
The robber is a most excellent answer!
1) Survive: Escape from Atlantis
2) Pandemic: On the Brink Expansion (I’ve only played the bio-terrorist scenario once; having one player scribbling in a notebook and plotting against you the whole time is rather intimidating.)
Survive: Escape from Atlantis! I want and Get Bite has a Black Player Piece.
1) imperial assault
Already following on Twitter
There’s chess! I knew it would turn up! Good one Dave! I think in light of the awesome Star Wars trailer today – a lot of ppl would love a little Imperial Assault on their wish list!
Awesome Dane! I would like to try Five Tribes myself. Someone already took Carcassonne for their mention of a game with black player pieces. Got another one?
i can change mine to Alcatraz, the scapegoat
Sorry about that Peter…thought I looked at that closer. How about for my black player piece I go with Battle Sheep.
2. Kingdom Builder
My wishlist game: Imperial Assault to soothe my Boba Fett-ish
Black Playing Piece: Munchkin Quest – it doesn’t come like that. I painted it so. That’s how Munchkin I am!
1. Five tribes
