I admit Settlers of Catan isn’t one of my favorite games but the group I play with enjoy it. In my gaming group it always seems to come down to whomever gets the most sheep, and when said group revels in immaturity, well… I feel sorry for those poor grazing herbivores. As I’ve written in my Settlers of Catan game session: “In the Game of Catan you either have the largest civilization or you lay with sheep. There is no middle ground.” That said, it was extremely fun watching Wil Wheaton and his friends play it in Episode 2 of his series.
Despite the number of times a 7 was rolled and resources were stolen, I was surprised that no one ever had more than seven cards when the robber showed up. I was really looking forward to players’ reactions when they would be forced to lose half their hand.
In Episode 4 they played was Ticket to Ride, another game that I don’t mind but isn’t a favorite, but that could be because when I lose it’s by a small margin. With the right people it can be loads of fun though.
It was another great video, and I burst out laughing when that horrific thing happens at the end of the game before the final points can be tallied. I can’t count the number of times that has been threatened in my group.
I’m definitely looking forward to more episodes of TableTop which are released on the Geek & Sundry YouTube Channel twice a month on Fridays.
