Re: Games To Play During The Blizzard
Well, it's the day after the Blizzard - my driveway and stairs are shoveled out in case of emergency here in Boston, but I'm still more or less snowed in. Getting up to my eyeballs in video games used to be a snow day tradition for me throughout my childhood, but you know what I did after I was finished shoveling yesterday? Read a book and went to bed early. Oh, how boring I've become(to be fair, I was scared to play anything multiplayer yesterday because my connection would be terrible). Maybe I'll rectify it by playing through some of my backlog today (which is nigh-endless now thanks to my Steam family plan - what a dangerous idea for human society). Thanks for the list, Dave (I can't believe you don't like Hearthstone, though).
Spaceteam is already an old standby for me, but as someone else pointed out, friends will have a bit of trouble getting to my house, and it's best with more than two players. I've actually heard the Mario & Sonic games are notoriously bad. Wondering if the latest one might be an exception, I looked it up on Metacritic. Average score: 55/100. Guess not. I was not aware of a portable version of Goat Simluator, so that's gonna be a must-try. Glad to see you didn't neglect board games, because this is a great time for some non-electronic family bonding. The fact that it's already too late to pick anything up notwithstanding, I'd suggest Boss Monster. Each player is a boss from a 16-bit era video game trying to build their optimal dungeon to attract the most heroes while still killing them to gain points. It's incredibly simple but strategically deep, with just cards and no extra dice or anything.
