Aeon’s End

Ben is awesome. He sent me a new board game for my birthday. It’s called Aeon’s End, and is similar to Dominion– my favorite game ever– with a few twists, including the fact that it’s cooperative. That alone means Pepper is willing to play it (she hates losing to me above nearly everything else in her life).

So we cracked open the box and learned how to play. There’s an initial game setup intended to teach the game to new players, which was nice.

When a game has this many cards and tokens, you know it’s a good one.

We were slaughtered the first two times we played. Apparently we’re missing something about the strategy. But we’ll keep playing. Thanks, Ben!
