    Dead Man’s Draw review 

    Playing the Kickstarter game Dead Man’s Draw that Joe got for us as a present (thank you again). It’s a good lightweight push your luck card thing

    Reveal cards and play their powers, keep revealing as long as you want, if you get doubles of a suit you lose the cards.

    Strict time limit too, since when the deck runs out the game is over. It’s a “we’re tired, but feel like doing something” game for us.

    Evolution review 

    So way back when I won a minor contest and the prize was all the Evolution bonuses from the kickstarter. I ended up backing the remake+flight expansion so that I’d be able to actually use them.

    Clever ruse, Evolution people.

    Picked up our copy at GenCon and brought it to table.

    It ended up being a really good mid-complexity game. Lots of hand building, lots of engine stuff.

    As a bonus, Angelica being an ecologist, she liked the theme. It reminded me of SimEarth so I was a fan too.

    Above is the predator that carried me through the game, up until everyone else realized it was probably a dang good idea to kill him off. Erin has a wicked engine at the end too, with multiple Coöperations and Foragings to just devastate the plant food supply each turn.

    Very good game, highly recommended.
