Two Thousand and Seventeen


Oh wow, it has been a while since the last blog. Like a month. But in my defense Christmas and New Years meant there was a two week IpBoG hiatus.

I came along to the first IpBoG of 2017 with my new Christmas gift of Orléans, the super popular bag builder that was released all the way back in 2014. Although I don't think it was released in most places until 2015. And of course it's only just  2017 so really the game isn't as old as it sounds. In my mind it's still new and fashionable. It really is a great game even if I do say so myself. Everyone that reads this and hasn't played it really should come along and have a go on it, even if you've not been to IpBoB before. You wont be disappointed. And that's an IpBoG guarantee!

Not AloneAs well as Orléans I played a quick game of Bang! The Dice Game. I've always been a bit underwhelmed with Bang! so jumped at the chance to play this. My main gripe with the original is that for a game full of so much randomness it really can drag on way past it's welcome, if you'll excuse my mixed metaphor. The new version didn't disappoint and we got through a game in a timely 15 minutes or less as advertised by the box. Anyone still playing the original Bang! should burn the box (or bullet snakes case, depending on the version) and get the dice game, you wont be disappointed. And that's an IpBoG guarantee!

Other people were there of course, and other games were played. Danny whipped out Tragedy Looper for some two player action. Another table played a bunch of game includeing, but not limited to Not Alone and... okay, that's all I've got. I really need to try and take more photos to jog my memory. Next week, I'll do better. No guarentees.
