What games ARE too similar for you to own both?
Gaia Project replaces Terra Mystica for me, while both are a different beast when it comes to area locking; Gaia gave me more to think with the tech track. Kemet 2.0 replaced Bloodrage for me, it was much easier for people to get into Kemet with most of the information open than Bloodrage, and battles in Kemet is way more intense.

What Did You Play This Week? - (August 23, 2021)
Played a 2 player game. **Kemet Blood and Sand**: Found out this week that my groups first play of this game we got some rules wrong, which meant when I went to play it at 2 players we fudged some of the rules but I had corrected some of our previous mistakes. Nonetheless we had a great time and are looking forward to a 5 player match to really get everything going on the board!.

First copy arrived damaged. It was replaced. The game plays fast and brutal. It comes with miniatures for each player, that came a bit bent. Perhaps in time they'll straighten out, but gameplay isn't affected, as they still stand. The fact that the miniatures are different sculpts is a nice bonus. T...

What's a game you love that got a new edition whose changes you dislike?
**Kemet: Blood and Sand** made a lot of good improvements in balance, rules to avoid edge cases and timing issues, and some editorial direction on tiles for player count and other similar areas. However the board art is worse, it lands in a strange almost real almost stylized which isn't great, the style on the card symbology feels mixed, the quality of the miniatures feels a bit worse, and the English rule book is terrible and full of errata, I wound up having to print my own of the fixed one once the community helped them fix it post campaign. I still kept Blood and Sand as the positives are far more important thab the negatives, but it does feel like a slight miss.

Fun game, but rules aren't very clear
I got this for my brother in law who loves Risk. The game is fun, but there are lots of times when something happens that isn't really explained in the rulebook, and you're not sure what to do, so then you just let Rach have it her way...

Hadn't ever played Kemet before, but this was so much fun. We both loved it, which was a particular win because Tallie is usually very indifferent to dudes on a map games. The upgrade system is really cool, I like how combat is done, and it is a really tight race to win.

This game was on my wishlist for almost a year, now that I finally bought it I have to say that I was surprised. Its awesome! It's something between a worker placement and a war game... yet it's nothing like a worker placement game nor a war game. You control one of five different armies, each repre...
