#WhatDidYouPlayMondays - Game in photo is Dream Home

This week saw a lot of board gaming events cancelled or post-poned, including our local Con here, Breakout Toronto, scheduled for this coming weekend. Like many of other people we spent a lot of time indoors playing board games. Here is what we've been playing:


  • Inhuman Conditions is a new game that is just becoming available after a sucessful crowdfunding. This is a short 2-player game inspired by the Voight-Kampff test from Blade Runner that determines if someone is an android or a human. One play is conducting the interview and trying to determine if the other is a human or android and the other is trying to avoid suspicion and answer the questions of the Investigator. Inhuman Conditions takes a couple of minutes to teach/learn and plays in about 5 minutes and will appeal to role-playing gamers and theatrical gamers due to the heavy emphasis on acting and improvisation. We only played it the one time but got a good sense that this game is as much fun to watch being played as it is to actually play.

  • We finally tried the Yokai expansion for Kanagawa. Yokai doesn't add a ton of new stuff to this already great game. More accurately it allows you to freshen up some of the choices you have in the original game. With the expansion you take out some of the cards and diplomas from the original game and replace them with cards/diplomas from the expansion. The Yokai adds enough variety to justify the purchase if you like the base game as much as we do.

  • Slide Quest is a challenging cooperative dexterity game that uses gravity to move a rolling knight around a moving board trying to avoid obstacles and accomplish objectives. This game should be part of every employer's team-building workshop as it relies on effective communication and team work in a way that I've never seen in any other game. Lots of variations to make rules harder (but some maps are already crazy hard!) and a campaign mode for a longer game. This is one my favourite new games to pull out with new gamers.

  • Ganz Schon Clever (That's Pretty Clever!) is a brilliant dice game with little down-time between turns because you get to play on everyone's turn. Players have to decide what dice to sacrifice and offer up to all the other players to use. Takes a bit to teach but well worth it.

  • Queendomino is one of our favourite 2-player games and never disappoints. Really the only part of this that is anything like dominoes is the 2-sided design of the tiles you are placing into your kingdom. Lots of interesting decisions and choices in this game. Great with all player counts.

Stay safe everyone!
