This week we were busy with family stuff but I got two new-to-me games and we played them both:
Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra is the 2nd game in the Azul series and an excellent upgrade on basic Azul. I feel like Sintra is a more strategic game and offers a few more options on your turn than the original version of the game - but it still very much feels like the first Azul. The addition of a single worker who needs to be occasionally reset adds a significant amount of strategy to your options. Still easy to learn. Still sleek and elegant. Still tons of fun.
In The Quacks of Quedlinburg players are charlatans brewing their own ingredients to create the perfect elixir without pushing it all too far and causing your pot to explode. Essentially a deck-bulding game (in this case a bag-building game) with a heavy dose of push your luck, Quacks is designed by the genius mind of Wolfgang Warsch and won the 2018 Kennerspiel des Jahres for good reason. There is just something so exciting and satisfying about pulling another token out of the bag and adding it to your pot in this game! Quacks is the perfect implementation of a push your luck mechanism in my opinion.
Help keep it alive and show your support!
